Naruto was neglected for his siblings. it was really sad, seeing as that nobody even knew that the fourth hokage and his wife had triplets not twins. Being the youngest of the triplets, Naruto is in no way, considered special. He is not a village hero like his elder brother who is the jailor of the kyubi. He is not a pure blood Uzumaki like his elder sister who has the Uzumaki chakra chains like his mother. He was not destined to be a clan heir or the saviour of the world, like Jiraya said that his brother was. He was just plain old Naruto who was always forgotten and the extra character in the story that was there just for the sake being there. He had no purpose in life. well... this all was before he met Kurama. After he met Kurama... Lets just say that it was the true beginning of Naruto Uzumaki.
