harry potter houses characteristics

If you are at all familiar with the books in the Harry Potter series, you are probably already familiar with the four distinct Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry Houses that make reading the Harry Potter books so much fun. JK Rowling has created four different houses that operate as separate entities at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry School for Wizards. Each house has its own dormitory and common room at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and more or less operates as a working unit. Most students take classes with members of their own house. Each house even has its own table in the Great Hall where they eat together, so it is understood that most students eat, sleep and study together. This creates a sense of intimacy with each house, as well as a sense of competition with other houses.

Even though there are no rules against members of different houses from mingling socially with one another, the practice is generally deterred by the simple fact that the students naturally spend more time with people from their own house. Perhaps the most popular and most respected house at Hogwartsâ€"at least with readersâ€"is the house of Gryffindor. Gryffindor is popular because of its chivalric characteristics, which include courage, loyalty and boldness. Of course, the house of Gryffindor is home to Harry Potter, and his best friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley and the rest of the extensive Weasley clan. The symbol of house of Gryffindor is the lion, and the colors of the house are gold and scarlet. The founder of the house of Gryffindor was Godric Gryffindor. Like the other houses at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the house of Gryffindor has a resident house ghost. For the house of Gryffindor, this spooky house ghost is the jittery Nearly Headless Nick.

The house of Gryffindor is the house that Harry Potter and his friends live in, and so it is the house that has been most extensively described in the course of the book series. The members of Gryffindor, of course, also tend to be the main focus of most of the subplots. The private quarters of the house of Gryffindor are located on the seventh floor of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry School, in one of the castle’s high towers. To gain access to the Gryffindor quarters, those who wish to enter are located on the seventh floor and they are guarded by a painting of the Fat Lady, a portrait of a woman who is a dressed in a luxurious pink dress. The Fat Lady only permits entry to the Gryffindor quarters if you are able to provide her with the correct password. The password is constantly changing to make certain that only Gryffindor members can enter. Once a Gryffindor member provides the Fat Lady with the correct password, they are capable of gaining access to the interior. Behind the Fat Lady there is a large common room. It is furnished with a sitting area and a fireplace. Inside the room there are two staircases that lead up to male and female dormitories.

Some critics and JK Rowling herself have mentioned that the house of Gryffindor corresponds to the element of fire, which would explain its bright crimson and gold colors. The house of Gryffindor’s biggest rival is the house of Slytherin. The house of Slytherin in general dislikes the house of Gryffindor, both because they appear to be annoyingly heroic and because since the arrival of Harry Potter, the house of Gryffindor has become the most frequent winner in all of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry School contests. The house of Gryffindor nearly always finds itself saving the day, which surely annoys the house of Slytherin.
