Elektra's sensei, Drake, is missing from the MCP.

DRAKE
ELEK2 19-FB
{ELEK2 16}
ELEK2 17
ELEK2 18
ELEK2 19
ELEK2 20
ELEK2 21

Other than Drake, it looks like these issues have been fully covered by the MCP -- the villains Shadow, Pain and Thought are here, supporting characters Philip Carson and Jeremy Locke...I'm not sure why Drake was skipped.

Could Drake have been skipped because of this rule in the FAQ?
Characters who only reveal their first names are not listed, regardless of their importance.
I don't know the character, so I don't know if "Drake" is his first name, last name or code name...

Drake is a her. And it's never really specified if it's her first name, last name or codename.

She's of the Chaste, and they all have names like Stick, Stone, Shaft, Claw, Star, Flame, Wing etc. I don't know if "Drake" fits that naming pattern -- it's a male duck -- but it's a one-syllable noun just like the other Chaste names.

As a first name, it means "Dragon" -- but it's a male first name, not a female. So I'd tend to assume that it's either her last name or Chaste name.

I feel good about concluding that it's a Chaste name/codename, and including her in the listings.
