The youngest of the Sand Siblings and host to a beast, like Naruto. He is the Fifth Kazekage of the Village Hidden in Sand.
Bore Gaara was born, a continuing series of budget cuts plagued the Land of Sand. This resulted in his father (The Fourth Kazekage) to seal the one-tailed beast, Shukaku, inside of him, making him a jinchuriki like Naruto.
made to seal Shukaku was in fact Gaara's mother.For years, Gaara's uncle Yashamaru told him of how his mother loved him to the moment she died, when, in reality, she had cursed the Village Hidden in Sand for her death. She gave her last child a name. His name was "Gaara", meaning "A self loving carnage", thus saying that Gaara was a demon that only loved himself, fought for himself, and thought only of himself. In reality, Gaara only tried to help others as a child, and, much like Naruto, he was shunned, simply because of his powers and jinchuriki status.
On one Occasion he tried to get a group of little kids ball for them, but rather than take it, they just left in terror.  The rush and Gaara's want for them to take it back and keep playing caused him to accidentally use his sand to hold them to the ground, nearly crushing them.  His uncle Yashamaru, one of Suna's medical Ninja, realized what was happening and rushed to stop Gaara. In the midst of all this, Yashamaru received a minor cut on his finger and a wound to his forehead. Later that day, at home, Gaara is seen with a knife trying to slit his wrists.  Yashamaru walks in on Gaara just as he does it, but is relieved to see that the sands of Shukaku stop the knife blade.
He then tells Gaara that it pains him to see that kind of thing, even if the sands stop him from receiving harm. Gaara then asks what pain is like, and Yashamaru explains that it is an unbearable experience, much like what he feels when he is left out from everything that the other children do. He then explains that there are wounds that even he can't heal, and that these are wounds to the heart.
Yashamaru explains that the only known cure to these wounds is love. He tells his opinions on Gaara's mother, how he thinks that every grain of sand is a symbol of her love for him. In reality, this was not so, because she cursed him as she died.
Gaara then decides to show his newfound cure to the kids he accidentally harmed at the park earlier by giving them some wound ointment that his uncle gave him. When the door opened, the kid saw him and told him he was a monster and to get away from him. A disheartened Gaara trudged home silently until he wandered into a drunk. The drunk then told him to watch out and began threatening him... until realizing that this boy was in fact the jinchuriki. It was at this point that Gaara finally snapped. In a rage, Shukaku's sands wrapped around the middle-aged man, crushing him(since Gaara was still a child, the mans body was still in a recognizable form, as Gaara wasn't strong enough to crush them into a pulp until he was older). He continues his walk home, without any guilt on his face. His father sees him on his way home and they exchange glances. This would be the last even slightly friendly meeting between the two. As Gaara finally reaches the top of the building to his Apartment, a masked man began hurling his levitating kunai at the little Gaara. "Why... why...is it always ME?" Gaara exclaims as the kunai dropped from the sand and wrapped around the masked assassin. Gaara's fist closed on the man as did the sand, with bone-crushing force. Gaara then calmed down and went from his state of rage to nervousness as he noticed a bandage on the mans finger. He lifted up the mask to find that the assaulter was none other than the only person that Gaara thought had ever loved him, his dear uncle, Yashamaru.
After the young biju host had an emotionally distraught conversation with his falsely loving uncle, the prepared assassin unleashed his final tactic as an attempt on Gaara's life. Yashamaru then opened up his Shinobi vest to release the multiple letter bombs that he had concealed on himself the whole fight, and killed himself in the explosion. Gaara lay on his knees, angered, broken, and let out a scream that could have been heard throughout the Sand village, as the grains of Shukaku's sand all flew into one spot on Gaara's forehead above his left eye forming the kanji 愛-love.
After a few years, Gaara's father, the Fourth Kazekage, decided that the assassinations attempts should stop, and that Gaara could be a very useful tool for the sand village.
an unbreakable protective shield. And as it began to engulf him. He barely had a way out at all, and still had his arm get snagged, and then crushed with unimaginable force. His options were growing thin, as Gaara stared at him with his cold, expressionless face.
"Grrr..... I'm tire of your expressionless face! I'm going t wipe that look off of it forever!!!" Deidara said, obviously infuriated that Gaara had just ripped his arm off. The kazekage just stared at him blankly through the small hole that was in his shield.
He was very open in his attempts to kill Deidara, and sent the sand flying at him every second or so, and refused to give Deidara a second's rest.
However, Deidara had a plan, and it would require that Gaara choose between himself and the village. It was then that Deidara sent some of his specialized clay birds to exploit Gaara's shield. The small birds were then inside of Gaara's shield, and rather than let the explosion impact the entire Village Hidden in Sand, he enclosed the explosive clay Avian's within his shield and took the full fore of the blast in a valiant, noble act.
"Hmmmm....leave it to the Kazekage to take the sand himself and hold it up...when it would have been so much easier to dump it on 'em...heheheh" Deidara said as his huge clay bird clutched the fallen Kazekage in it's claws.
"Gaara...." Kankuro said with a sad expression on his face. He knew that his brother had saved the entire village, and he was proud.
Deidara and Sasori take Gaara to their hideout. Where Akatuski begins the extraction of the Shukaku from Gaara. The extraction take three days and three nights. The extraction is complete and Gaara dies from the Shukaku no longer residing in him. During his time of death, Sakura and Chiyo (one of the elder syblings of the Sand Village) take on Sasori which ends in Sasori's death. Naruto and Kakashi takes on Deidara. And Team Guy takes on a fake Itachi and Kisame. After the battles are over, the rest of the sand ninja arrive. They decided they were going to help their Kazekage, the one who protected them. Chiyo then decides to give the remainder of her chakra to Gaara in a forbidden jutsu that brings back the dead. When she didn'th ave enough Naruto lend her som of his to finish the jutsu. After the jutsu was complete Chiyo died. She traded her life, for Gaara's. When Gaara awoke, he found out once and for all, that he is not alone in this world, and that many people really care about him.
When Naruto and the others left, Gaara showed that he still has the ability to conrtol sand, but to what extent is still unknown as he hasn't appeared in the series since.
Gaara returns in Shippuden, getting ready to set off to the meeting of the five Kages. With his siblings, Temari and Kankuro as his bodyguards.
When Gaara left for the summit, his hair had grown a little longer, he still wore his sand gourd on his back, and the traditional Kazekage hat and gown were attached to it. Temari and Kankurō accompany him for protection, but Kankurō notes that he doesn't need bodyguards.
