This may have been suggested because his daughter is a Ravenclaw. The books don?t say that.--Rodolphus 18:54, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
- I believe this is inferred from DH20, when it is revealed that Xenophilius kept a bust of Rowena Ravenclaw in his house, and used it to model his replica of her legendary wit-enhancing tiara:
- "Ah, I see you've spotted my pet invention," he said, shoving the tray into Hermione's arms and joining Harry at the statue's side. "Modelled, fittingly enough, upon the head of the beautiful Rowena Ravenclaw. Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure!"
- However, this only proves that he admired Rowena and her ideals, not that he was Sorted into her House. ★ Starstuff (Owl me!) 14:02, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
