Is there a hint to in which House he was in? I have just played the sixth game. His Portrait was hung next to blue banners. Is it possible that he was a Ravenclaw, then?--Rodolphus 19:24, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

I have an extremely small list of reasons he could be in Ravenclaw:
  1. He was hung next to blue banners.
  2. According to his article, a Ravenclaw prefect led the first-years to von Rheticus's portrait because it hid a passage to the tower.
  3. As von Rheticus is so good at Astronomy and the Ravenclaw Tower is one of the tallest, being a Ravenclaw would give him a good view of the skies.
  4. He is quite smart, a characteristic of Ravenclaw house, although he is also caring like a Hufflepuff.

I admit, these are feeble excuses but surely they'll count for something. --Hunnie Bunn 23:54, March 12, 2013 (UTC)

I'm afraid they're little proof of anything. The portrait had little or no say in the decor (just like the poor old Staring Portrait: I mean, he asked for a room with a view!), and being bright or accomplished in academic matters is no synonym of being a Ravenclaw: just take Dumbledore or Hermione, for example. As for the Prefect thing: we are never shown a Ravenclaw prefect leading students throught this portrait and even if we were, it would be proof of nothing, as a portrait opens for any student that provides the correct passwort (just like Harry and Elizabeth Burke in the Order of the Phoenix game). --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 23:54, March 21, 2013 (UTC)
Okay :) Thanks for the answer :) --Am I annoying you yet? If not, let me know when I am. 00:08, March 22, 2013 (UTC)
