Pukwudgie was one of the four houses at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in North America. It was named so by Muggle James Steward, after the Pukwudgie, a fiercely independent magical creature, based on stories he heard from his wife Isolt Sayre about William the Pukwudgie.
Pukwudgie house is sometimes considered to represent the heart of a witch or wizard. It is also said that Pukwudgie favours healers.
Behind the scenes
- The Pukwudgie is a creature that appears in the folklore of various indigenous peoples of North America, notably the Wampanoag. It is typically described as 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.
