Before becoming a Saint, Shion was a Cloth repairer at service of Hakurei. Shion was able to see the lives of the previous Saints that used the Cloths by touching the wounds in them. One day while he was repairing the cloths, he encountered a mysterious man who offers him the chance to see the story of all humans, past, present and future. When Shion was about to accept, the Cloths started to move, and the man noticed that even when Shion was spying on them, they were asking him to stay. However, Shion's desire to go made him start destroying the Cloths... until he found his master's Altar Silver Cloth. The story and feelings emanating from it were warm and melancholic, and Shion asks the man for more time to consider his offer. The man then tells him that one of humanity's greatest sins was hesitation, and slashes him with a black whip, wounding him deeply. Shortly thereafter, the man reveals himself to be Balron Lune, the Celestial Excellence Star, and leaves. About to die, the Cloths protected Shion until his master found him. Hakurei makes another wound in his arm and passes blood from his body to Shion's, allowing the boy to live again.
