Fantastic Beasts: Names Of "America's Hogwarts" Houses Revealed

Houses

Every Harry Potter fan has a house they claim as their own. Until now, every Hogswarts fantasy has resulted in aligning with Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, or Hufflepuff. With Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them rolling around, the options are expanding.

Ahead of the film's release, Federico Ian Cervantez accidentally discovered the names of the four houses of Ilvermorny (or, America's Hogwarts). When we meet the new school for wizards, we'll meet its four houses: Horned Serpent, Wampus, Thunderbird, and Pukwudgie.

Cervantez found the names while digging through the javascript he found for a new quiz being put together on the official Harry Potter website. The quiz starts by asking, "Where do you belong? Horned Serpent, Wampus, Thunderbird, or Pukwudgie..."

Elsewhere in the quiz, the Horned Serpent is described as "dragon-like serpents with horns and long teeth. They are often associated with or said to control the weather, particularly rain, lightning, and thunder. Magical abilities ascribed to them include shape-shifting, invisibility, and hypnotic powers."

The Wampus is a "cat-like" creature described as "some kind of fearsome variation of a cougar."

The Thunderbird, apparently one of the more prestigious of options, is a "legendary creature" which is "often described as a very large bird, capable of generating storms and thunder as it flies."

Then, of course, there's the Pukwudgie. The Pukwudgie is said to be "two-to-three feet tall and human-shaped, but with a larger nose, ears, and fingers and smooth, grey skin that sometimes glows. Its magical abilities include disappearing and reappearing, partial or complete transformation into a porcupine or cougar, and creating fire."
