I don’t know if life is greater than death. But love was more than either.
The Marauders’ era.
Roots and lies, roots and lies, our family tree is old
From there we climb the golden hill, calmly will eternity
I held your heart, a giant wand; all tell of sorrow
And history begins to be blue and brown eyes
One of the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the founder of Slytherin House. Sly and cunning, he was not unlike many of the students he brought into his house. He believed strongly that only wizards of pure blood should be allowed to attend Hogwarts. The qualities which Slytherin prized in his handpicked students included resourcefulness, cleverness, determination, and a certain disregard for the rules. He also selected his students according to cunning and ambition. Salazar Slytherin was one of the earliest recorded Parselmouths.
One of the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the founder of Gryffindor House. Gryffindor valued courage, determination and strength of heart above all other qualities. Indeed, he selected students for his house based upon their daring and bravery. He also was the most in favour of allowing Muggle-borns into the school. He transfigured the Sorting Hat into a sentient artefact to sort students after his lifetime. Godric Gryffindor was the greatest duellist of his time. He also possessed skill at Muggle duelling, using his sword in combat.
One of the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the founder of Ravenclaw House. She was a sharp and intelligent woman. Intellect is a highly valued asset to the students of Ravenclaw house. Due to this, it is likely that Rowena wanted to make Hogwarts the very finest Wizarding school on earth, teaching those children with the highest intelligence. Ravenclaw House therefore values a sharp mind, wisdom, creativity, and cleverness in its members. Rowena Ravenclaw was the most brilliant witch of her time.
