Skills and Abilities
From day one, Ittula has had life handed to her on a silver platter. Her doting (if somewhat distracted and prone to giving her whatever she wants to keep her out of trouble) parents made sure she had every possible advantage available to her, the best of everything: best education, best opportunities. But living the life of the rich and upper-class has its downsides. As a child, friendships with her same socioeconomic peers were often surface-deep and fraught with pettiness, rivalry, and backstabbing behavior.
This type of background led Ittula to not only grow into a spoiled young woman, but also one with shallow expectations regarding relationships and a "me first before everything" attitude. This isn't to say she's all bad. She seems to genuinely take pride in the things she accomplishes on the business and innovation front, she has an insatiable curiosity and desire for learning new things, she respects and loves her parents, and she does not seem to exhibit the same kind of relationship hang-ups with her Pokemon as she does with people. There's some good in her; it's just buried under a lot of terribleness and designer make-up.
Recently, she's gotten out from under her parents' wings and has started to set foot on her own, doing her own things, making her own life for herself. It hasn't been as easy as she thought it was going to be. Her new business is just barely staying above water, and she's trying to live the luxury lifestyle she's used to without help from her parents, which is more than difficult to say the least. She has found that one of the best ways to offset her expenses is to take up Pokemon training as a hobby. Engaging in Pokemon battles often sets off sparks of inspiration and put Ittula in inventing and innovation mode for days afterwards.
In short, Ittula is a brat who is far too clever (and far too conceited) for her own good. When she isn't parading around the city in elaborate, crazy fancy designer dresses (and a matching crazy hairstyle - headdress or tiara sometimes included) throwing her money around, she's occupied by business or research clad in a pair of round spectacles and unpractical work attire that's just as expensive and flashy as her usual wear (gem-studded lab coat anyone?). She's not a completely rotten apple core, but good luck trying to get to her sweet side.
Ittula's experiences with friendships have often been shallow, unfulfilling, and rife with underhanded conflicts. As such, she doesn't truly understand genuine kindness and sincerity from a "friend." Given the chance, Ittula will walk all over any friend who will let her and not understand that this sort of thing is problematic. It's not that she deliberately sets out to treat her friends badly (in fact, she seems to really want a deep emotional connection and will absolutely spoil her favorite friends); she just doesn't have any experience with real solid friendships. More than anything, she needs a friend with good boundaries who will stand up to her but still give her benefit of the doubt and kindness.
Enemies could come from anywhere for a person like Ittula. She could have anything from cutthroat business rivals, little guys who've been stepped on by her or her parents' business practices, gangsters hoping to hold her ransom (she's worth a pretty penny to her very rich parents!), spurned and/or psychotic ex-lovers, ex-friends who have been burned one too many times, and of course, people who just find her to be too much of a spoiled brat to handle.
Ittula enjoys physical affection, being pampered, and having a fun date to take out on the town. Much like her friendships, these relationships also tend to be very shallow. She's something of a heartbreaker and once had a different lover for each day of the week (she's since tried to keep entertained by her new lover for at least a month or two before moving on). A long-term, exclusive relationship isn't out of the question, but it will be hard-earned. Likely, it will involve a lot of off-again, on-again shenanigans and electrifying chemistry.
