Slytherin common welcomes you, fellow Housemate! And for all those from other Houses: we see through all your polyjuice tricks! After all, we are the cunning ones! And would know your trickery immediately. However, we understand the great interest all others hold for the Slytherin tenants and will test your worthiness to remain here via this Slytherin House quiz

Until recently, we were proud to keep our room exclusive to our students only. In fact, Slytherins have maintained this integrity for many years. Until Harry Potter, of course. Now that the “charm” is ruined, we are welcome here too. But serious quizzing is required. 

Mysterious Lot

If you think that Slytherin is a highly intriguing Hogwarts House, I fully support you. Its history is rich in ups and downs, great wizards, and the dark ones. However, unlike other Houses, Slytherin does not cover its eyes at the more controversial aspects of its history and accepts its dark patches. It’s a known stereotype among many students that all the dark wizards are from Slytherin. However, that is not true. While the House has a fair share of them, other houses are not spotless in this aspect. Slytherins just own it! And all the Harry Potter House quizzes prove it repeatedly. 

Just like they embrace the negative stereotypes about their House and use it to their advantage. Are people afraid of them? On many occasions, yes! And what do they do? Throw a couple of covert threats, mention Dart Arts, and enjoy their antics.

However, the greatest pride of this House is its unity. Yes, they may be full snide remarks and sneers, but they will not allow rudeness towards anyone of their House. Only the inner circle is allowed that! You see, this is like a secret club. If you are accepted, you are one of them, and they will stand up for you. The risque banter inside the House is usually friendly, in fact. And that is how families work! 

Incredible Slytherins

To my mind, Slytherin is more of a grey House than any other is. It is all about duality. Its students see the greys in life and live outside a fool’s paradise. In this House, you can see an epitome of blood-purists and an aspiring Death Eater conduct one of the bravest acts in history by moving against the Darkest of Wizards single-handedly. We know of a double-agent wizard who’s risked everything to commemorate the love of his life. And we all read about the greatest wizard of all times, a Slytherin at that, founding an Order to protect Muggles! If this is not what makes Slytherin great in your eyes, I’d gladly listen to your thoughts!

Also, I’d gladly speak with you about your favorite Slytherins. Who do you like the most? Are they present in the main book series or a part of its history? 

For now, let’s enjoy this Hogwarts House quiz.
