Very little is known about Shun as his past is still shrouded in mystery. In the series, Shun was introduced as a Konoha shinobi and a member of the Allied Shinobi Forces in the Second Division.
Shun is an anime-exclusive character who does not make any appearances or receive any mentions in the Naruto manga, making him a non-canon, filler character.
Shun made his debut in the anime in Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax Arc. In the Fourth Shinobi World War, Shun was assigned to the Second Division under Kitsuchi (an Iwagakure jonin)’s command. Shun, along with Neji Hyuga and Natsu, was deployed to assist Naruto Uzumaki, Killer Bee, jinchurikis of the Nine-Tails and Eight-Tails respectively, and Might Guy and Kakashi Hatake. While they were on their way to them, Shun mentioned a rumor that he heard that the real Madara Uchiha had made himself known on the battlefield.
Soon, they were attacked by a portion of the White Zetsu Army. Shun and Natsu defeated two of them with some help from Neji. Afterward, Shun got into an argument with Natsu but Neji broke up their fight and reminded them that they were in a war and people were fighting on the front lines.
Shun has not made an appearance since and it is hard to determine whether he is alive or dead. For the time being, based on his last status, he is presumed to be alive and well until any additional information comes to light suggesting otherwise.
Shun had a sparse contribution to the series and never had the opportunity to express his individuality. However, the databook states that Shun has the personality of a prideful warrior and would gladly provide his abilities on the battlefield.

He was also wearing a standard pair of black shinobi sandals.
