Gaara is the fifth Kazekage,Gaara is also the youngest child of the late forth Kazekage,and the younger brother of both Kankuro and Temari-he was the third Jinchuriki of the one-tailed Shukaku and,being raised as a tool of Sunagakure,Gaara gained the nickname Gaara of the Sand Waterfall,he started out as a major antagonist,but is now a supporting character in the anime and manga series.
While Gaara had initially tried to be friendly towards others,despite their fear of him,Yashamaru`s actions and words changed him.realizing that nobody loved him Gaara used his sand to create the Kanji on his forehead "Love",as a symbol of a "Demon loving only himself",and to live up to his name,as a Karura intended.Gaara became emotionally withdrawn,and all but silent,and consumed with a bitter loathing for everyone but himself and "Mother",the voice of Shukaku in his head.he learned to find pleasure,and eventually a reason to live,in annihilating the numerous assassins sent to kill him-and,by extension,anyone who threated his existence.this was only worsened by the ocassional demand by Shukaku for blood to sate its blood lust,which resulted in Gaara being merciless,demonstrated when he murdered Baiu and Midare while ignoring their pleas.
Gaara`s insomnia,forced upon him by the fear that the demon inside him would eat away at him if he were to fall asleep,only furthered his instability and desire to kill.in fact,his hatred extends to his siblings,as he never saw them as such,and was fully willing to kill them were they to cross him.in time,Gaara`s father would come to appreciate Gaara and the uses he could serve,and canceled all assassination orders in the hopes that Gaara would become an effective tool.
Gaara`s childhood was,in many ways,similar to Naruto Uzumaki`s though more unfortunate due to his lack of anyone to call a friend.both were lonely and desired to be liked,loved,and acknowleged as an indivual,free of others prejudice-they were themselves,not the demons they were forced to "contain"-both were driven into a despirate state.while Naruto consequently developed the misconception that prnaks and mischief would bring him the attention he sought,Gaara came to the conclusion that he could preserve and confirm his own existence by killing any and all who challenged it,securing an extreme form of existentialism as his key personality traits.
