Horned Serpent is one of the four houses at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in North America founded by Irish-born witch Isolt Sayre.[1][2]

Horned Serpent House is sometimes considered to represent the mind of a witch or wizard. It is also said that Horned Serpent favours scholars.[3]

In 1926, Horned Serpent received 315 House points, the third highest of the four houses, but won The Charms Chalice award.[4]

Behind the scenes

  • Horned Serpent is a creature that figures in the folklore of many indigenous peoples of North America.[5][6] They are typically described as dragon-like serpents with horns and long teeth.[6] They are often associated with or said to control the weather, particularly rain, lightning, and thunder.[5][6] Magical abilities ascribed to them include shape-shifting, invisibility, and hypnotic powers.[6]
  • The house crest is in the shape of a Gordian knot, alluding to Rionach Sayre's brooch.
