 Continuing our Harry Potter quizzes, we'd like to present to you the ultimate test of your Slytherin knowledge. Any members of the House here? Sure they are. How can you miss a moment of House pride?

Slytherin is a highly controversial House that has gained a bit of bad reputation over the years of Hogwarts' existence. But is it truly so?

Slytherin Case Study

Surely, we cannot blame the whole House for the mistakes of a few of its members? The fandom is unanimous in one opinion - not all Slytherin members are bad. The roots of its ill reputation lie in its Founder beliefs and actions. Salazar Slytherin held strong prejudice against muggle-borns which became the reason for the falling apart of Hogwarts founders. Over the years, Slytherin students became known for their belief in blood supremacy. The reason were the actions of a few pure-blood families attending Slytherin. The enrollment of the Dark Lord to the House only added to the fire.

In reality, the common Slytherin traits are not evil in nature, the people can just easily ?orrupt them. Ambitiousness and resourcefulness are great qualities to have in the Wizarding world. Cunning may be used for good as well. The tendency to self-preservation may cast a darker shade on Slytherin members but quite a few House characters proved to be capable of self-sacrifice.

Slytherins may not be known for their friendliness, but they are devoted to their small circle of friends and can be very loyal.
