- Domineering, ImpulsiveDistinguishing Features:
Isaac has a small scar along his right ear, after accidentally blowing it off when a spell backfired on him in his 4th year. Other than this, he considers his size and height to be his most distinguishing feature.
Isaac is a fun loving, dedicated student at the Salem Institute ever since his first year. He comes from a well respected family of Wizards who have accomplished great things in the history of his lineage, so he feels as though he needs to be as successful. Fiercely competitive with his friends, Isaac tends to define himself by the accomplishments of himself and his peers. This extends past the academic realm. Though he would not be the first to suggest going on a impromptu adventure, he usually never discourages it. Believing that these sort of experiences are what forge the truly legendary Wizards and Witches.
Isaac is not, and has never been the smartest person in his class. Usually he makes up for it with straight determination and practice. What he lacks in a gifted mind he usually makes up for with skill learned via hard work, and a humble demeanor. However, as his brothers and sisters, as well as his parents and grandparents were thought to be 'gifted', he is extremely self-conscious about his average (to slightly above average) level of intellect.
Isaac enjoys being in positions of authority. Not because he likes to tell people what to do, but rather because he frankly thinks his grounded mindset and compassionate attitude makes him a good tutor or teacher.History:
The Barlow Family dates all the way back to England Roots. While they have sired several generations of incredibly gifted and well respected Wizards, the Barlows have not been known for positioning their descendants in to key positions of power. They are regarded as one of the "high class" families, ones that host large parties and carry influence because of their name, history, and impressive accomplishments as a Pure Bloodline since the early days of organized magic societies. Not because of their direct positions of responsibility. They are an immensely proud family who impress upon their children the importance of keeping excellence, especially in regards to anything that could harm the reputation of their family.
Eventually Isaac Leer Barlow would grow of age to enter the academic field alongside his twin sister, Rachel Barlow. From the very beginning of his career at the Salem Institute Isaac has been absolutely determined to become a student who the Professors would consider a "cut above the rest". Knowing that he could not accomplish this through brains, he instead focused on raw study and discipline to make the grades required to be noticed by both his peers and Professors. Primarily in the interest of holding true to the honor demanded of him as a male heir to the Barlow dynasty.
With the dark events that have taken place in the Wizarding World over the last several years, Isaac strongly believed that it was crucial for him to learn everything he could in regards to Wizard related combat. Focusing the majority of his academic intent on the Advanced Dueling and Defense Against the Dark Arts.
