There is not much information about Shibire's past as in the anime, he appeared in Naruto Episode: 35, "The Scroll's Secret: No Peeking Allowed." He alongside his teammates entered in the chunin exams and were in the 2nd stage in the Forest of Death after they passed the 1st stage.
Shibire and his teammates survived till the 4th day of the 2nd stage when Tanzo went to look for food in the forest. He and Monji tried to open the scroll which they had been told not to, but they did it anyway, which made them unconscious.
Some years later, in Naruto’s Footsteps arc, Shibire and his teammates again participated in the chunin exams held by Konoha village and Sunagakure (the Village Hidden in the Sand). In the first stage, they had to clear the written test where Shikamaru Nara and Timari served as proctors. He was in a separate room in which Neji Hyuga, Hinata Hyuga, Shira, and other genin were present.
In the Second Stage, Shibire and his team failed to reach the location near Sunagakure where the 2nd stage would be held.
Shibire is a dumb and impatient person. He and Minoji opened the scroll, which they were told not to open. He got nervous in the written test of the chunin exams.
Shibire has spiky brown hair and thick sideburns. He wears a high collar black jumpsuit and Konoha headband. He has a ninja tool bag attached to the right thigh of the jumpsuit.
Shibire is tall and fit, so he must be strong physically, but he never showed any shinobi techniques in the series. As a genin, he must know basic techniques and also has good stamina as he ran from the Konoha village to the Sand village continuously for three days and nights.
