Shiba’s Background


Very little is known about his childhood and past other than the fact that he was shinobi from Kusagakure and was present during the final round of the Chunin exams held in Konohagakure (Village Hidden in the Leaves).



Shiba and his partner, Midori, observed the final round of the chunin exams, When it was time for the match between Gaara and Sasuke Uchiha, Shiba, along with his partner approached Gaara to convince him to throw the match. In the anime, they were instructed to do so by the daimyo who hired them. Many daimyos and higher-ups place bets on matches and Gaara throwing the match would result in a huge profit from the bets placed on Sasuke.


Gaara feels insulted by their proposition and kills them both with his sand, soaking his sand in their blood. Fortunately for Naruto Uzumaki and Shikamaru Nara, this incident satisfied Gaara’s blood lust by the time they ran into him.
