  • J.K. Rowling Shot Down Speculations of Similarity between Hogwarts and Ilvermorny Houses

J.K. Rowling puts a hold down on all the rumors that the Ilvermorny houses resemble Hogwarts houses in traits.

J.K. Rowling has been treating all the Potterheads with more and more information about the American wizarding world. Drawing close to the release of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the American wizarding world is coming into focus. J.K. Rowling also revealed the details about the American wizarding institute by the name of Ilvermorny.

Recently, she also revealed the names of the four houses at Ilvermorny along with their traits; Thunderbird identifies with the soul of the wizard and favours adventurers, Horned Serpent represents the mind of the wizard and favours scholars, Pukwudgie speaks to the wizards’ hearts and favours healers, and Wampus is the body of a wizard, favouring warriors.

While many fans speculated which Ilvermorny house was similar to which Hogwarts house, the Pottermore website also started a Sorting for the Ilvermorny houses.

J.K. Rowling felt that the comparisons were making both the institutes’ houses. She has made it a point to remind everyone that the houses were not the same or synonymous with each other.

According to EW, she said that while the houses traits might resemble, there is only a smidge of a chance that these houses are the same. In a tweet, she said that “There is no equivalence between Hogwarts and Ilvermorny houses, but don't diss Hufflepuff!”

The questions for the sorting in the Ilvermorny houses is very different from the questions for sorting in the Hogwarts houses. This should be an indication enough that the American school is different in it sorting criteria then Hogwarts.

More details about Ilvermorny houses are also available on Pottermore. If there is any doubt about the specifications of the houses, they can read all about them there.
