Juran is a member of the Scions of the First. From Kelaris, he grew up as an orphan, sleeping on the streets and living on scraps. After his survival skills were noticed by the Sept of Shadows, Juran was taken to Gol Zaram where he learned the art of the assassin. After a few years, Kaine approached him and revealed to Juran that he was a descendant of one of the First. It was then that Juran first dressed in the Armour of the First and became a scion.
