Do you think that these portraits are some form of a horcrux? Since they appear to have the memories and personalities of the person featured, they must have some part of the person's soul in them. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs) 20:29, 28 July 2009.
- Nope. According to JKR there are several ways of imprinting one's personalities and memories after the death of that someone. Examples of that are the Marauders Map, ghosts and yes, portraits. -- 20:12, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Film Portraits Edit
I don´t own the DVD. Are there other Portraits in the film that are not featured in the book, aside from the Unidentified Head, Slytherin, Swott, Skndenberg, Wilkins, Vulpus and Scamander? Possibly the other founders?--Rodolphus 11:40, March 14, 2010 (UTC)
I am compelled to ask why Salazar Slytherin has a portrait listed in this article, but the other founders (Godric Gryffindor, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Helga Hufflepuff) are not? Is this simply a mistake or do they really not have portraits in there? --Nitrous X 16:41, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
