On a dark night, a baby boy was dropped on the doorsteps of the Sashiba Clan. While his father remains of unknown origin, he did show traits of the Sashiba clan. They provided for him until he became of age, to become a full-fledged ninja. Duran spent most of his time watching the village from afar in the desert growing up, trying to figure out who he was and where he came from. He discovered his aptitude for his skills in taijutsu and slowly began developing his own fighting style inspired by the surrondings of the Sand Village. Jonin took notice and encouraged him to join the ninja academy.
