This is my first post in this forum. I don't know if this will reach many people, but that doesn't matter. I just want my first post to be about my favorite character-Itachi Uchiha from the anime 'Naruto'. Itachi Uchiha- The ninja from Konohagakure who sacrificed all his dreams for the sake of his village. A true dark knight. It all began when he was four years old and was standing in the middle of the aftermath of a Ninja War, where he desperately tried not to cry in front of his father, but couldn't stop the tears from rolling down anyway. Seeing all the dead bodies and the corpses with horrified faces twisted in agony, he decided then and there-He would get rid of war from the world and to achieve that, He'd become the best ninja there was. [mal type=character id=1] [mal type=anime id=1] Then something happened when he was five. An irreplaceable moment, when he held his lovely little brother in his arms. The responsibility he felt towards the little life he now held very dear was unfathomable. Sasuke- the only bundle of joy and hope and light that had kept him going within the darkness throughout his life. Itachi was a pacifist. He questioned 'reality' and 'truth' itself and always tried to see the world without any preconceptions. All he ever wanted was peace and to uphold the peace, he was determined enough to kill his entire family and clan-his own kin-for it. He'd do anything-anything for it, as long as it didn't harm his younger brother. Sasuke was the only one he could never lose in his life, the only one who he wouldn't allow to be sacrificed- his dear brother. The story of Itachi while did start out as a journey to become the greatest ninja and to rid the world of fighting, wasn't about that. In the end, it was all about the love for his younger brother and the bond between them. It was simply the undying love of an elder brother. Itachi Uchiha, the one who protected the peace from within the shadows.
