The Chakram are Ruby Hale's weapon of choice.

History

Ruby Hale's Weapons

"Look at me. Next time, it's her. And I won't use my fists."
Ruby Hale to Leo Fitz[src]

Ruby Hale threatening to execute Glenn Talbot

The highly skilled HYDRA operative Ruby Hale owned a set of Chakrams she used as her weapon of choice, having extensively trained to master these particular weapons. She used them to threaten Glenn Talbot once he was taken to the HYDRA Preparatory Academy by General Hale. She kept them in hand when Hale revealed the Phase Harmonic Teleportation Device to Talbot and raised her blades when Talbot discovered that Hale was a leader of HYDRA. However, Hale ordered Ruby to stand down.[1]

Ruby Hale slices off Yo-Yo Rodriguez's arms

Six months later, when Ruby was sent to the St. Louis Aerospace Facility with a group of Sleeper Mechs by her mother, she wielded her Chakrams during the confrontation with S.H.I.E.L.D.. Thanks to the weapons, Ruby was able to slice off Yo-Yo Rodriguez's arms, forcing S.H.I.E.L.D. to retreat.[2]

Ruby also visited Phil Coulson with a Chakram in his cell at the Academy once he got captured by Hale. Believing to be the Destroyer of Worlds who had destroyed the Earth in the future Coulson had seen, Ruby put her Ring Blade on Coulson's throat when he told her that the destruction of the planet was due to Quake. Ruby kept her blade on Coulson's skin and demanded to know Quake's whereabouts, but Coulson refused to speak.[1]

Carl Creel resists to the Ring Blade

When Coulson, Talbot and Carl Creel attempted to escape from the Academy, Ruby equipped her Chakrams and went to chase the prisoners. Ruby fought against Creel with her Chakram, cutting the fighting staff he wielded against her. Ruby and Creel had a brutal fight, but as she prepared to throw her blade at Creel, Ruby was told by her mother to stop as she needed Creel alive. Nevertheless, Ruby threw her weapon, but Creel absorbed the property of the wooden staff he still had, enabling him to withstand the hit.[3]

Ruby Hale fights Quake

Ruby then kept chasing Coulson and Talbot who had escaped with the teleportation device. She caught up with the fugitives and threw her Chakram at them, but they ducked to avoid it. As they kept running away, Ruby once again prepared to attack them, but she was attacked by Quake, who had come to rescue Coulson. Ruby used her Ring Blade during her subsequent duel against Quake and managed to slightly wound her, but she was ultimately overpowered and knocked unconscious by Quake's power. Deke Shaw attempted to confiscate the Chakram, but he got shot in the shoulder by Hale.

Ruby Hale threatening Jemma Simmons

Ruby took her Chakrams to the HYDRA Herefordshire Facility where she and Werner von Strucker planned on finding the Particle Infusion Chamber. They found Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons who had infiltrated into the facility, and upon discovering that they had damaged the equipment, Ruby held her Chakram at Simmons' throat, threatening to kill her if they did not fix what they had broken.[4]

Ruby strapped Simmons to a chair and kept throwing her Chakram next to her, which greatly worried Fitz who convinced Ruby to release Simmons. However, when Ruby and von Strucker discovered that Fitz and Simmons were not working efficiently, Ruby severely beat up Fitz and once again threatened to kill Simmons with her Chakram. Once the Chamber was finally repaired, Ruby gave her Chakram to von Strucker as she went through the infusion with the Gravitonium.

Ruby Hale is murdered by her own weapon

However, the process turned out to be incredibly painful and Ruby quickly went insane. As Hale and Quake, who had come to the facility, attempted to calm her down, Rodriguez who had infiltrated with Fitz and Simmons joined them in the room and recognized Ruby as the one who had sliced off her arms. Filled with a desire for revenge, Rodriguez used her superhuman speed to seize Ruby's Chakram and slit her throat with it, thus killing Ruby with her own weapon.[5]

Trivia

  • Despite Dove Cameron hinting that the Chakram were "supposed" to be made out of the same material as Captain America's Shield, she later clarified that nothing specifically had been said about Ruby Hale's weapon being made of vibranium, and they were just able to cut through very different materials.[6]
