We all know of the legendary Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin, the four houses at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. What about the new American wizard school in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them?
Ilvermorny is the name of the school and the four houses are: Horned Serpent, Wampus, Thunderbird, and Pukwudgie.
The Horned Serpent is a dragon-like serpent with long horns and teeth. They are said to be able to control the weather, particularly rain, lightning and thunder. They can shape-shift, turn invisible and perform hypnosis.
Wampus is a cat-like creature that is pretty much a very scary looking cougar.
Thunderbirds are legendary birds that can generate storms and thunder when they fly. A Pukwudgie is a 2-3 foot tall human like thing with exaggerated ears, fingers, and nose. They have smooth grey skin that glows sometimes. They can disappear and reappear, create fire, and transform into either a porcupine or a cougar.
There is still more to learn about these houses and Ilvermorny. We’ll find out more November 18, 2016 when Fantastic beasts charms its way into theaters.
