Shigure was one of the genin from the Hidden Rain Village that participated in the chuunin exams. Alongside his teammates, Baiu and Midare, they were one of the two Rain teams that made it into the 2nd phase of the chuunin exam. The other Rain team consisted out of Kagari, Mubi and Oboro. Not much is known about Shigure and his team, except for the fact that they were easily defeated by Gaara.
Shigure and his team was very unfortunate to run into Gaara while in the Forest of Death. In order to get another team's scroll and advance to the next phase of the chuunin exam, Shigure confronts Gaara using his Raining Needles technique. By throwing his umbrellas into the air, and controlling the released needles kept inside with chakra he hoped to finish off Gaara by attacking him from all directions. But Shigure's technique didn't have any affect against Gaara at all. Gaara's Shield of Sand that constantly protects him took care of the job of defending Gaara.
Having his technique failed, Shigure rushes towards Gaara and attacks him head on. Gaara retaliates by trapping him within the Desert Coffin, and finishes him by crushing his entire body with the Desert Graveyard technique. In the end Shigure didn't put up much of a fight, and was easily killed by Gaara. Gaara also shows no mercy for Shigure's teammates, and altough they already surrendered after they saw Shigure get defeated so easily, they met the same fate as him.
