And will often grow bored of conversation with people unless she's the center of attention.

    Spoiled as a child, she often goes exploring of the castle, fascinated with the architecture and how often it changes. The only thing keeping her at the school at all in fact, was how much the school itself changed, and she understood the importance of making friends for her future. She grudgingly talks to people, and can sometimes come across as surely and irritable with her restlessness.

------------------------------------------------------------
CHARACTER HISTORY
------------------------------------------------------------


    Early Years: When Izzie was first born, her family was very happy. Going on trips around the world, visiting the Ministry, and famous sites, watching Dragons, speaking with mermaids, and overall traveling more than your normal family. When Izzie turned five however, a series of events led to her mother finding out that her father wasn't completely pureblooded. Appalled by his lies, her mother moved out of the house, leaving Izzie with a father who could barely take care of her because of his work. Instead Izzie was sent to live with her wealthy grandfather on his estate. Where she grew up exploring the underground tunnels, the grand acres of woodland and meadows. Her companions as a child were often the children of other pureblooded families who dumped their children at his house for the summer time.

    Izzie quickly grew to become the leader of these children, telling grand tales of Dragons and Mermaid, boasting about how she once pet a Chimera, and greeted a Sphinx in the lost pyramids. Soon her grandfather took a liking to her extravagant stories, and helped them become real. When she was 8 years old, her grandfather started to take her on trips with him. Now at an age where she would remember the trips, he took her to Japan to visit the Geisha and spent an entire year learning how to speak their language and do tea ceremonies. The next year her grandfather took her to Africa, where she was incorporated into the lifestyle of a basic village, and learned how to clean clothes by hand, and once came along on a hunt with the tribe.. The year before he first year of Hogwarts was a mash of other trips. She spent a year traveling from Paris, to America, to Italy, and Russia.

    Hogwarts Years: Once Izzie started school however, everything changed. She moved back in with her father, who had become much more of a cold man, it was her grandfather who took her to Diagon Ally to get her wand, a wand that showed her adventurous ways in how brightly it glowed from the warmth of her travels. However after a large argument between her father and her grandfather, her father ended up taking her to the train station for her first year of Hogwarts.

    Izzie was dissatisfied when she first entered Hogwarts. Her experiences in life had set her up to be that Hogwarts was the most magnificent place one could go. But from the moment she entered, she was disappointed. The learning style was too slow for her, the grounds became boring, and the people were stuffy and inexperienced. She quickly gained a group of followers with her expressive tales of her life, and by the time she was 16 had grown a little accustomed to the school and was no longer as dissatisfied.

    Every summer Izzie went back to live with her Grand father, who took her places she wished to go, visiting famous locations she had learned about from school. She learned multiple more languages, and at 16 could speak Japanese effectively, has a basic understanding of some African languages, is currently in the process of learning French.

    Adulthood: Not there yet.

It's a good application so far but a few bits need to be adjusted.

Some of the personality needs to be tweaked to give her a few more less positive traits. The weakness that she is bored easily doesn't need to be included because you can infer she is bored easily due to her surliness. But, for example, to me she came off as quite arrogant.

Also, I doubt very highly a ten year old would be able to kill a lion; trained or not. Some of the language abilities should be toned down a bit too. Well-travelled or not, it is far too advanced for her age.
