Itachi's early childhood was marred by violence: when he was four years old, the Third Shinobi World War had just begun, and he witnessed the battles.
The death and destruction he experienced at such an early age caused Itachi psychological trauma, causing him to become a pacifist.
Itachi was the first child in the family of Fugaku and Mikoto Uchiha
At the age of five, he met Shisui. Their views turned out to be very similar, so they quickly became friends. Their friendship was so strong that they treated each other like brothers, and they often trained together

Despite his peaceful nature, Itachi was a genius in all ninja arts and was considered one of the best shinobi of his generation. He received the highest grades in every subject at the Academy and easily mastered any skill, including jōnin-level techniques.

Sharingan Itachi

Having exhausted all his ideas, Shisui gives his remaining eye to Itachi and asks him to protect the village and the clan, after which he jumps off a cliff and drowns in the Naka River. Itachi experiences pain after losing his friend, enough to awaken the Mangekyō Sharingan.
The next day, some members of the clan, already suspecting Itachi, openly accuse him of Shisui's death and faking suicide, causing him to lose his temper and easily defeat them

На следующий день некоторые члены клана, уже заподозрив Итачи, открыто обвиняют его в смерти Шисуи и имитации самоубийства, из-за чего он выходит из себя и с лёгкостью побеждает их
Исчерпав все свои идеи, Шисуи отдаёт свой оставшийся глаз Итачи и просит его защитить деревню и клан, после чего спрыгивает с обрыва и тонет в реке Нака. Итачи испытывает боль после потери друга, достаточную для пробуждения Мангекьё Шарингана.
The Sharingan can be developed into the Mangekyo Sharingan by experiencing the loss of a loved one, allowing the owners of these eyes to gain techniques unique to each of them in addition to the regular Sharingan abilities.
When the owner of this enhanced genome experiences powerful emotions towards people they care about, their brain begins to produce a special type of chakra that affects their ocular nerve, turning their eyes into Sharingan; It is because of this that the Sharingan is also called “eyes that reflect the heart.”
There's no point in killing you now... My stupid little brother... If you want to kill me... curse me! Hate me! Live a long despicable life...

unfair treatment of the Uchiha clan in the village pushed them to the idea of ​​a coup d'etat

Fugaku, the head of the clan and also the main organizer of the coup, encouraged Itachi's advancement in the ranks of the Anbu and wanted to use his son as a spy.

Itachi, however, understood that the coup planned by the Uchihas would lead to the intervention of other states, and, as a consequence, to a new shinobi world war, which could not cause his approval.

From this point on, Itachi's relationship with his family becomes even more strained, and his warnings to reconsider his actions fall on deaf ears.

Instead of supporting the clan, Itachi becomes a double agent and reports the clan's activities to the Third Hokage and the Konoha Council, in the hope that they will find a way to resolve the conflict peacefully
Although the Third Hokage still wanted to negotiate with the Uchiha clan, Danzo decided that there was no way out that could save the lives of the Uchihas. He explained this to Itachi and gave him a choice: to support the clan's coup, which, in his opinion,
will lead to his complete extermination of the Uchiha including Sasuke, or destroy the clan with his own hands before the coup itself begins, and get the opportunity to spare his younger brother...

I kept saying “forgive me” and lying to you... I didn’t let you near me, holding you at a distance with these hands...
I didn't want... to involve you in all this... But now I think... that maybe you could change your father, mother, and the entire Uchiha clan...
If I had opened up to you from the very beginning... I would have held the same point of view, I would have been honest with you... But I was mistaken... and I am telling you everything only now, when you are hardly able to understand.

That's why right now I decided to show you the truth... even if only a little! And even if you can never forgive me... no matter what you do next...
