About Gaara

Gaara (Naruto) - Suna's Fifth Kazekage

Gaara is a character from Naruto, a manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. He is a shinobi of Sunagakure. He was made the jinchuriki of the One-Tailed Shukaku before he was born, causing the villagers of Suna to fear him as a monster. With nobody to connect to, Gaara grew up hating the world and looking out only for himself, justifying his own existence by killing anyone he came across. After being defeated by Naruto Uzumaki, a jinchuriki like himself who found strength in his friendships, Gaara starts imitating him. He becomes Suna's Fifth Kazekage so that he could protect the village and all those who live there, dispelling the fears he cast on the villagers.

Because of heavy cuts to Sunagakure's budget, the Fourth Kazekage wanted to make one of his children the jinchuriki of the One-Tailed Shukaku to serve as a weapon for the village. His first two children, Temari and then Kankuro, had not been compatible with Shukaku. Rasa's third child, who would become Gaara, was compatible, and for that reason Shukaku was sealed into him by Chiyo while he was still in his mother's womb. Gaara ended up being born prematurely and his mother Karura died during the birth. Before dying, Karura looked lovingly at Gaara's small form and vowed to always protect him. Gaara was raised in isolation during his early life, taught ninjutsu by his father and cared for by his maternal uncle, Yashamaru. When he was allowed to roam around the village, Gaara would try to connect with the villagers, being kind to them and offering them any assistance he could. However, being a jinchuriki made the villagers frightened of Gaara; adults avoided him and, when they couldn't, treated him delicately while children would run from him on sight. Gaara would try to assure them he meant no harm, but in the process would inadvertently injure or even kill them with his sand.
