Gaara Profile Review
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 Realizing that nobody loved him, Gaara used his sand to create the kanji on his forehead,He became emotionally withdrawn, all but silent, and consumed with a bitter loathing for everyone but himself.
Gaara's insomnia, forced upon him by the fear that the demon inside him would eat away at his personality if he were to fall asleep, only furthered his instability and desire to kill. In time, Gaara's father came to appreciate Gaara and the uses he could serve, and canceled all assassination orders in the hopes that Gaara would become an effective tool for Sunagakure.
Gaara is almost like a mirror image of Naruto; they're opposites, but they're very similar. "Gaara's upbringing was very much like Naruto's. He was universally rejected and ignored, living a superfluous existence. But Naruto and Gaara have different viewpoints on their backgrounds; that's why they come into conflict".

Gaara Abilities
As the host of Shukaku, Gaara possesses the ability to manipulate sand, typically moving it through the air to serve various purposes. When first introduced his basic means of attacks is to capture, immobilize, potentially suffocate an opponent with sand and to crush the opponent with varying intensities. In time he is able to increase the scale of these attacks; by first using sand to cover a large area, and then compressing the sand and crushing all that it covers. His primary defense is an automatic sand shield that surrounds and protects him from damage whether he wants it to or not. At some point in time Gaara begins to be able to form weapons in Shukaku's likeness. Because the replica is formed under extreme pressure and is built of the strongest minerals it is virtually indestructible, having yet to be penetrated by any force. In desperate situations, Gaara can take on the form of Shukaku by layering sand on his body, making him many times more powerful than he already is. Shukaku's personality grows more dominant during this transformation.(Source fromWikipedia)
