Sowande, one of the Hand's leaders, was recruiting young men from Harlem for cleaning up operations by the Hand in New York. After the death of Sean Miller, his previous cleaner, Sowande recruited his younger brother Cole.
When the Hand found the location of the Chaste's headquarters in an abondened workshop in Chinatown, they sent a group of warriors, led by Elektra. They killed all members of the Chaste and captured Stick.
After returning to New York, Luke Cage decided to find Cole. Using information from Turk Barrett, he found Sowande and followed him to Chinatown. In the meantime, Iron Fist and Colleen Wing went to the Wall and found the corpses of the Chaste warriors left after their battle with the Hand.
Rand caught him up and tried to interrogate, but he was attacked by arrived Luke Cage. Rand tried to defeat Cage, but he could not hurt him because of his bulletproof skin. Cage won the duel, but Rand punched him on his head with the use of his Iron Fist. Duel was interrupted by the arrival of police officers. Cage and Rand escaped, but Miller was arrested.
After returning home, Luke Cage told Claire Temple about his encounter with Iron Fist. Temple realized that he meant Danny Rand, whom she knew. She brought Cage to meeting with Rand and Colleen Wing in Chikara Dojo.
