Arashi first appeared in the Land of Rice Fields Investigation Mission arc in Naruto. The Fuma clan fought in a war and wanted to settle down. Orochimaru and Kimimaro promised to help restore their power if they joined. Otogakure decided to join hands with Orochimaru alongside Jigumo, Kamikiri, Kotohime, and Kagero.
Before Naruto Uzumaki, Sakura Haruno, and Sasame found him, Arashi pretended to be Orochimaru. He killed his fellow clan members, Jigumo and Kamikiri, and used a technique called Casualty Puppet to gain more power, but it drove him insane.
During the fight, Naruto removed the puppet corpses from Arashi's back and returned him to his senses. However, the fight caused the hideout to collapse, and Arashi chose to stay behind with his puppets, accepting that he would die either way.
While posing as Orochimaru, Arashi was very mean and didn't care about others. He killed his own clan members to become stronger and went crazy because of a special technique he used.
But when Naruto made him realize what he was doing, he seemed to feel sorry and wanted to change. However, instead of running away from the collapsing hideout, Arashi decided to stay and accept that he would die.
Arashi, while disguised as Orochimaru, had long dark hair, pale skin, and sharp, intense eyes with a snake-like quality. He wore a black, high-collared shirt and dark pants, reflecting Orochimaru's distinctive style. He had purple hair and pale skin when not posing as Orochimaru.
Arashi was a really skilled member of the Fūma clan. He could use a special technique that created a pyramid-shaped barrier to trap and squeeze his enemies. By absorbing the bodies of two other Fūma clan members, he transformed into a big, flexible mass and gained the ability to use their unique techniques.
