Ilvermorny Sorting: Harry Potter Characters

With the release of the houses for Ilvermorny happening last week, I thought it would be interesting to see where our beloved characters from the original series fit into their American counterpart.


Harry: Thunderbird

Thunderbird’s are motivated by their soul, and often enjoy freedom and adventure. Certainly, Harry didn’t really ask for his adventures, but his love and talent for flying and Quidditch really represents the freedom that is Thunderbird house.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I

Ron: Thunderbird

Ron always had big dreams and desires, but I have to admit he was hard to place into a house. I debated between Thunderbird and Wampus, but felt like Thunderbird was more of a fit.


Hermione: Horned Serpent

Hermione is definitely a Horned Serpent, where the mind is the focus and the decision making factor. Although she is in the same house at Hogwarts as her two best friends, I certainly don’t think it is the same case at Ilvermorny.


Draco: Thunderbird/ Wampus

Ooh Draco, he was also a difficult placement. Since Draco is such a complex character. He could fit into Wampus because of the deep loyalty that exists in Slytherin with pure bloods, but could also be in Thunderbird because of his difficulty in choosing to follow the wishes of the Death Eaters and Voldemort, as if it hurt his soul. So, I sort him in both and he would have to decide.


Luna: Horned Serpent

Luna is certainly a Horned Serpent, her curiosity and connection to knowledge in different ways makes that evident.


Ginny: Thunderbird

Ginny is a born leader, has that adventure spirit with Quidditch, so it’s so easy to place her into Thunderbird. Also, Weasley’s stick together.


Neville: Pukwudgie

Neville is the only Pukwudgie in this group, because he definitely is one who follows his heart and makes deep connections with people, it’s his greatest strength.
