Fall from Grace:
Prior to joining the Hand, Genkotsu was said to have been a holy man.  It is unknown of what religion he practices but it is very clear that he has been corrupted a great deal since then.  He is now a sadistic torturer of the Hand.

Genkotsu is a character in the Daredevil story known as Fall from Grace.  In this story he battles Daredevil with the Hand searching for a special telepathic virus known as About Face.  He follows the orders from Lord Daito.  In doing so he faces off various heroes that includes DaredevilElektra, Shang Chi.

Working to find the About Face virus he is killed by Elektra.  He is however revived through the Hand magic of the Sakki blade.

He goes on a mission led by Tekagi to kill Singer Tsikali an innocent person whose sacrifice could help restore the full powers of the demon infused Sakki blade.  During this mission he is one of the first to be taken down.  Elektra poses as Osaku driving a truck to his location.  However she does not stop the truck but crash into him.  He whines to Tekagi that he can feel his legs.  Tekagi unmoved tells him to die there in the dirt and leaves him behind.
