J.K. Rowling is known for revealing information about her characters and stories on her Twitter page. Yesterday, she took to Twitter and answered some fan questions about the main characters of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Ilvermorny, the American equivalent of Hogwarts, is has four houses, just like Hogwarts. Wampus, Horned Serpent, Pukwudgie, and Thunderbird are each named after Fantastic beasts/animals. Rowling revealed which house Tina, Queenie, Jacob, and even herself belong to.
Ilvermorny’s four houses are described by Harry Potter Wikia as such:
Wampus: Sometimes considered to represent the body of a witch or wizard. It is also said that Wampus favours warriors.
Horned Serpent: Sometimes considered to represent the mind of a witch or wizard. It is also said that Horned Serpent favours scholars.
Thunderbird: Sometimes considered to represent the soul of a witch or wizard. It is also said that Thunderbird favours adventurers.
Pukwudgie: Sometimes considered to represent the heart of a witch or wizard. It is also said that Pukwudgie favours healers.
Perhaps now we can understand the Fantastic Beasts characters a bit more- along with Rowling herself!
