Highly skilled with his sword.
Little is known about Scimitar's past, except that his name has been used by many other people in his country of Halwan. It is even believed by some that the name gets passed on from generation to generation.
Upon his first appearance the villain wanted to kill innocents to lure Iron Fist out of hiding, as Fist was his real target. The plan worked and Iron Fist revealed himself, and despite Scimitar's speed and fighting skills, Iron Fist was still able to defeat the villain. He had a few more run-ins with Iron Fist and his partner Luke Cage, but almost ended up defeated.
He was hired by the terrorist group known as the Weaponeers, who now use him as their "super-agent", due to his highly skilled ways with his sword. Scimitar resurfaced with the Weaponeers in Zanzibar, where they attempted to kill the country's President, who was surprisingly enough also a retired super-hero. Thanks to X-Men member Archangel and his allies from Genosha, Scimitar and the Weaponeers ended up defeated.
Scimitar remains with the mysterious Weaponeers until this day, as they have been defeated by the X-Men right before the House of M began.
