    How Were The Lives Of Naruto And Gaara?

    Naruto and Gaara

    Naruto became the vessel for the 9 tails, at the expense of his parents. This resulted in him being blamed and hated for events that were not of his making. He lived his early life being a scapegoat and embodiment of death and destruction. Thus the fate of a Jinchurikki. He was orphaned, shown very little care, underfed, and lacked nurture. At a very early age, he had to learn to be independent. He was never allowed to hear about his heritage or the history of his great clan. The scene of Naruto trying to catch a fish for food sums up everything. Mistreatment all around.

    Gaara born in the sand village of Sunagakure, was the son of the 4th Kazekage. He was a living sacrifice (a jinchurikki) thus becoming the cage for the 1st tailed beast. His father was merciless. He wanted to use his son as a living weapon against competitors and other villages. The citizens despised Gaara and ostracized him. The memory of his own uncle calling him cursed and his inability to control his abilities caused him to spiral downwards to insanity. Losing the need to sleep overtime in order to keep the beast at bay Gaara became unhinged, ruthless, and sadistic. This character was even more sensitive than Naruto, and not a single soul stood by him.
