Hogwarts Legacy houses

Each house has a different common room, and the students within possess different traits based on the house they choose.

Should you join Slytherin, you get access to a common room that resembles a dungeon in some ways, which is pretty fitting given the dark past of this house. On top of that, you get to parade around Hogwarts in the iconic green and silver colours of Slytherin. When it comes to traits, you get the following:

  • Determination
  • Cleverness
  • Resourcefulness
  • Ambition

Furthermore, a fellow student and companion Sebastian Sallow is in Slytherin. Who knows how this may affect your interactions with him?

It’s fair to say that the Ravenclaw common gives off a regal feeling with its gorgeous rugs, curtains, and ornamental furnishings. On top of that, the number of books on offer gives a good indication as to what traits Ravenclaw students possess:

  • Wisdom
  • Wit
  • Intelligence
  • A desire to learn

Currently, there’s no word on who the Ravenclaw companion may be. We can’t even hazard a guess, but given we already know who the Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin pals are, we think there’s a chance that the Ravenclaw character is a major story point.

Unsurprisingly, everywhere you look, there are grand furnishings in the Gryffindor common room, all of which are blazed with the gold and red colourings of the house. If you’re a longtime fan of Harry Potter, you can likely guess what traits are strongly associated with the students of this house:

  • Bravery
  • Confidence
  • Courageous
  • Chivalry

Should the sorting hat place you in Gryffindor, you can expect to be in the same house as Hogwarts Legacy companion Natasi Onai.

Well, isn’t the Hufflepuff common room warm and inviting? What with its comfortable furnishings, dim lights, and general homey setting. Not only that, but there are many seats dotted around the place, perfect for putting the Hufflepuff traits to good use:

  • Loyal
  • Hard-working
  • Sense of justice
  • Patient

Poppy Sweeting is the Hogwarts Legacy companion that belongs to Hufflepuff. At least you have a kind-hearted soul to share some conversations with.
