The Chaste

The Chaste

The Chaste is a mystical martial arts enclave led by Stick, that was created by Frank Miller in the pages of Daredevil for Marvel Comics. The Chaste live in a remote wilderness location that can only be accessed by climbing "The Wall", a sheer cliff. The climb also serves as an entrance exam - those who fail the climb are not considered worthy. The primary function of The Chaste is to combat The Hand, an evil ninja group dominated by a demon. The Chaste's first appearance is in Daredevil #187.

In the story arc detailing Elektra's death and resurrection, the members of The Chaste are listed as:
* Stick - leader of The Chaste, and known for his use of the bo
* Stone - Stick's second in command, and can turn his body hard as stone with concentration. In Ultimate Daredevil and Elektra, Stone is an elderly woman who taught Elektra martial arts.
* Shaft - Uses a bow and arrow
* Claw - Uses handheld metal blades (similar to Wolverine) in combat.
* Star - Uses shuriken
* Wing - Power of levitation
* Flame - Power of pyrokinesis
