Itachi Uchiha was a prodigy, even among the Uchiha Clan, one of the key families of the Hidden Leaf Village as well as the strongest clan prior to it's massacre by his hands. Growing up during the Third Great Ninja War, he quickly got a taste for bloodshed at just the age of four, which scarred him for life, as well as meeting Orochimaru, who believed life that has end is meaningless, making him aloof, usually choosing his only company to be the crows and fellow Uchiha, Shisui as he sought to understand the world. He cared deeply for his friends and clan, more so for his village and younger brother Sasuke, who he cherished above all else. Graduating the academy in a single year at age 7, joining Team 2. When on a mission with Team 2, he was ambushed by a masked individual, who subsequently killed one of his teammates, Tenma Izumo, this causing him to awaken his Sharingan, which he mastered control over that same year. Itachi later becoming a Chunin at age 10. Itachi proved gifted as a ninja, joining the Anbu Black Ops only a year later, Itachi's accomplishments were a source of great pride for his family, his father viewing him as proof of the Uchiha's future prosperity and his brother viewing him as a model to live up to. Itachi spent a great deal of time with Sasuke, training with him (which doesn't technically mean training him per say) and giving him the recognition their father did not. However, for all the attention he received, few truly understood Itachi, believing his isolation to be a result of the gap between his abilities and theirs and not his dissatisfaction with the shinobi's life of conflict. Eventually, the Uchiha's disdain for their unfair treatment lead them to plan a coup d'état. Fugaku, head of the Uchiha and the coup's chief conspirator, encouraged Itachi's advancement into the Anbu's ranks as a means of spying on the village. Itachi, however, knew an Uchiha coup would lead to intervention from other villages and ultimately start another World War, something he could not support. He instead became a double agent, reporting the Uchiha's actions to the Third Hokage and the Leaf Council in the hopes it would help them find a peaceful resolution. Itachi shared the burden of betraying his clan with Shisui. But as time went on it became increasingly clear that peace could not be achieved. Shisui intended to use his Kotoamatsukami on the Uchiha's leaders to compel them to negotiate, but his right eye was stolen by Danzō Shimura before he had a chance. His own options exhausted, Shisui entrusted his remaining eye to Itachi and begged him to protect the village and their family name before drowning himself in the Naka River. Itachi was anguished by Shisui's death, enough to awaken his Mangekyō Sharingan. When the following day some Uchiha, already suspicious of Itachi, accused him of murdering Shisui and staging a suicide, Itachi lost his composure and attacked them, defeating them easily.  A rift was created between Itachi and his family, and his warnings to them to reconsider what they were doing fell on deaf ears. By age 13, he was promoted to Anbu captain. Although the Third Hokage still wished to negotiate with the Uchiha, Danzō Shimura recognised that there was no longer an outcome that could see the Uchiha clan's survival. He explained this to Itachi and left him a choice: support the Uchiha's coup and have the whole clan, including Sasuke, killed in the ensuing conflict, or accept the assignment to wipe out the clan before the coup started and be allowed to spare Sasuke. Itachi chose his brother. While making final preparations, Itachi discovered a masked man sneaking around Konoha. From observing him, he came to believe the man was truly Madara Uchiha bent on provoking some new conflict. Itachi approached him with an offer: he would assist "Madara" with wiping out the Uchiha, taking vengeance against them for abandoning him decades earlier, if Madara would spare the village, to which he agreed. That night, Itachi murdered his entire clan, including his childhood lover, his mother and father, friends, grandparents, the whole clan. When his younger brother had returned from the academy that night, he found everyone to be dead except Itachi, who put him under the Genjutsu of the Tsukuyomi, showing a highly fictionalized summary of the events that took place that night in order to cause his brother to hate him so he would 1. awaken the Sharingan, and 2. not ask to leave the village with him, as he was much safer in the Leaf Village than he was by Itachi's side, hoping he'd stay ignorant of the truth his entire life, and hate him like the rest of the village. When he left his house, he was surprised to find Sasuke following him, having awoken the Sharingan immediately after the effects of the Tsukuyomi wore off, to which Itachi cried, knowing he would likely never be forgiven, essentially losing what little family he had left. Prior to the Uchiha's eradication, unlike most villagers, Itachi bared no ill-will to Naruto Uzumaki, as he knew he was the one who bared the greatest pain from the Nine-Tails attack, so he'd always be kind to him whenever their paths crossed.
