He got expelled of five schools before coming to CHB, he is afraid of dogs after a bunch of them attacked him when he was 2 years old. Even though his mother was Latin, Apollo insisted on naming him Shirou. (Apollo really needs to stop with the whole Japan stuff.) He lived his childhood in Chicago, IL until he was 9. He found a gryphon who attacked him, after he barely survived, his mother sent him to a lot of private schools, but when he was 11, his mother sent him to CHB. He discovered that he was a demigod when he was 8, but his mother never told him about the camp until when she finally sent him there. He is really good at taunting monsters. Unfortunately, he also uses that ability to taunt people. Unlike some of his brothers, Shirou doesn't like Apollo's haikus.
