Shukaku was shown to have a drunken killer personality. During his fight with Naruto, he seemed to laugh like a menace whenever he destroyed something and shrieked when Gaara was waking up.
Shukaku has an enormous amount of chakra though he has the least of the Nine Bijuus. He is able to manipulate sand. He is in fact made out of sand so he can also regenerate himself with sand.
