Rare few Ravenclaws

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit & learning
Will always find their kind.

Handful of Hufflepuffs

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just & loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil.

Ernie Macmillan, Hannah Abbott, Susan Bones and Justin Finch-Fletchley.

Slytherin Squad

Or perhaps in Slytherin
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.

Draco Malfoy, Pansy Parkinson, Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle, Blaise Zabini and Millicent Bulstrode.

Gryffindor Gang

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve & chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart.

Neville Longbottom, Lavender Brown, Parvati Patil, Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan.

Lee Jordan

“Alright, alright. Flint nearly kills the Gryffindor Seeker, which could happen to anyone, I’m sure…”

Everyone’s favourite straight-talking quidditch commentator. Lee provides colourful commentary (too colourful, if you ask Professor McGonagall!) at Hogwarts quidditch matches. He’s the best friend of the Weasley twins and an active member of Dumbledore’s Army. Lee is always a fierce member of the resistance – whether levitating nifflers into Umbridge’s office or hosting the undercover radio programme Potterwatch at the height of the Wizarding War.

Katie Bell

“I am hopeful that Katie will make a full recovery in time.”

Katie is one of the trio of “superb chasers” on the Gryffindor quidditch team, along with Angelina and Alicia. She joins Dumbledore’s Army as an act of resistance during her sixth year in Hogwarts, and is later cursed during a bungled assassination attempt. Luckily Katie recovers and lives to fight another day in the Battle of Hogwarts.

Angelina Johnson

“What an excellent chaser that girl is, and rather attractive, too…”

Angelina is fiercely driven both on and off the Quidditch pitch. She was Gryffindor’s star chaser for six years, and captained the team in her final year at Hogwarts. Angelina’s other talents include exuberant dancing, duelling (sharpened by her brave participation in Dumbledore’s Army) and the ability to put up with Fred and George.

Percy Weasley

“Excuse me, I’m a prefect!”

Percy is the third eldest Weasley son, and a bit of a misfit in his large family. He’s “a great believer in rigidly following rules”, which can’t have been easy growing up with Fred and George. Percy is very ambitious and a model student at Hogwarts, first becoming prefect and then Head Boy. Admittedly, these achievements do make him insufferably pompous at times.

Fred & George Weasley

– “We’ve always known where to draw the line.”
– “We might have put a toe across it occasionally.”

Fred and George Weasley are famous within Hogwarts as “Trouble Makers in Chief”. This frustrates some people – their mother, Percy, Argus Filch – but amuses and delights most of their fellow students. All this magical mischief is valuable research, as they have big plans of opening a joke shop together. The twins are “identical to the last freckle” and always inseparable. Even their family get the two confused sometimes.
