Here at Poptonic, we’re constantly wondering “what if?” about nearly every franchise in existence. What if certain characters switched places – what if the Avengers were Jedi – and more commonly, what Hogwarts houses would our favorite characters be sorted into? So, I’m here to sort my favorite characters (and a few least favorites) into their Hogwarts houses and explore what their wizarding lives would be like. Also, here’s a spoiler warning because I’ll be mentioning plot points from the last season of The 100.
As a refresher: Hufflepuffs are loyal and hard-working, while Ravenclaws are witty and wise. Gryffindors are brave and reckless, and Slytherins are sneaky and ambitious. So, let’s get to sorting.
Sheidheda, who we meet briefly in season six before he takes over Russell Lightbourne’s body in season seven, is a Slytherin through and through. He wants nothing more than to be Commander of a massive army that can never be taken down.
If Sheidheda went to Hogwarts, his best class would be Charms. He’d also be a Beater on the Slytherin Quidditch team starting in his second year. After Hogwarts, I think he’d follow a similar path to Voldemort, but he would eventually be caught by Aurors and killed before they could arrest him.
And because I skipped right over the person who previously owned the body he was in, Russell Lightbourne was Hufflepuff that went down a dark path.
Bill Cadogan: Slytherin
Bill is also a Slytherin for many of the same reasons as Sheidheda. However, Cadogan wasn’t quite as evil as you’d expect. He just wanted to save everyone, and those ambitions led him astray slightly. He abandoned loved ones to prove he was right about the Ascension.
At Hogwarts, Bill’s best classes would be History of Magic and Transfiguration. He wouldn’t be on the Quidditch team, but he would be Prefect and Head Boy. He’d start working in the Ministry straight out of Hogwarts, eventually working his way to the Wizengamot.
Charles Pike: Slytherin
I don’t think it’s any surprise to see one of the most hated characters from The 100 as a Slytherin (a stereotypically evil house). Though I hate playing into stereotypes, he is one of the most cutthroat characters I’ve ever seen, going farther than most would to achieve his goals.
Pike would excel in Herbology, Potions, and Defense Against the Dark Arts. He’d also be a Chaser for the Slytherin Quidditch team. After Hogwarts, he’d become a Cursebreaker for several years before switching careers to become an Auror. Eventually, he’d be arrested for using Unforgivable Curses on outlaw wizards.
Thelonius Jaha: Slytherin
If you had asked me to sort Jaha after season three, I would have said he was a Hufflepuff or Gryffindor because he sacrificed himself to save the others on the Ark. However, after meeting A.L.I.E., he changed a lot. And though he’s not a bad guy, he did some really sneaky things to get what he wanted.
At Hogwarts, Jaha would enjoy Care of Magical Creatures and Charms, but his best class would be Potions. He’d be the Keeper for the Quidditch team from his second to fourth years before focusing on his studies. After Hogwarts, he’d immediately be recruited into the Wizengamot.
Finn Collins: Hufflepuff
Oh, Finn. Sweet, sweet Finn. He was a Hufflepuff that went off the deep end because he was worried about losing his loved ones. Finn showed that he was hard-working and loyal (specifically to Clarke) when they landed on Earth. It’s just a shame he went on a killing spree because he was desperate to find Clarke.
Finn would struggle in most of his classes, but his favorite would be Astronomy. He’d be the Seeker for the Hufflepuff Quidditch team and would barely scrape by on his O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s. After Hogwarts, he’d work in a store (probably a bookshop) on Diagon Alley.
Jasper Jordan: Hufflepuff
When we first meet Jasper, he’s nothing if not radiating Hufflepuff energy. He’s the loyal friend Monty needed when the 100 teenagers landed on Earth. Later in his story, after losing his girlfriend in season two, he starts trying to get justice for her, which is another thing Hufflepuffs are known for.
At Hogwarts, Jasper would excel in Potions and Herbology. He’s also a Chaser for his house’s team. Much like Finn, Jasper would struggle in class but would get high enough grades to become an Herbologist after Hogwarts. He’d spend his adult life making healing potions for a living.
Charmaine Diyoza: Gryffindor
When Diyoza is first introduced, we’re expected to meet a hardened criminal and antagonist of the fifth season. But what we got instead was a brave woman who stood up for what was right and against those that hurt others for fun. So, I can’t imagine she would be in any other house than Gryffindor.
Diyoza would do well in all of her classes, especially Defense Against the Dark Arts and Divination. She’d be one of Gryffindor’s Beaters starting in her second year. She’d become an Auror straight out of Hogwarts with a focus on catching higher-target wizards and witches.
Echo had an interesting character arc, but her journey from “Ash” to “Echo” shaped her life and the way she interacted with the other characters in the show. While she isn’t super ambitious, she has all the other typical Slytherin traits down.
At Hogwarts, Echo would fade into the background of her classes despite doing well in all of them. The one place she shines is on the Quidditch pitch as Slytherin’s Seeker. After Hogwarts, she’d become an Auror, quickly rising in the ranks and working closely with Diyoza.
Is anyone surprised Lexa is a Gryffindor? She has all of the traits of a Gryffindor, from recklessness to bravery. And as Commander, she needs all that to keep the nations in line (for the most part). I really don’t think there’s any other house for Lexa.
Defense Against the Dark Arts would be Lexa’s best class, but she’d also excel in her other classes as well. She’d be Gryffindor’s Seeker for her sixth and seventh years. After Hogwarts, she’d be a part of the Wizengamot with the goal of becoming the Minister of Magic one day.
Lincoln has always been a loyal character, but he values being brave in the face of adversity more. He even sacrifices himself to Pike to keep everyone around him safe. Gryffindor and Hufflepuff traits cross over a lot, but he has more Gryffindor traits and would prefer being sorted there if given a choice.
At Hogwarts, Lincoln would do well in Potions, Herbology, and Astronomy. He’d also be the Gryffindor Keeper from his fourth through seventh years. Lincoln would become a Cursebreaker after Hogwarts. He’d also settle down with Octavia, like what should have happened in The 100.
Marcus Kane: Ravenclaw
After wavering a bit in the first two seasons, Marcus solidified himself as a Ravenclaw in my eyes. Before then, he swapped between Slytherin and Hufflepuff, but I think he values knowledge and wisdom more than most others in the show.
Marcus’s best classes would be Charms and Transfiguration while at Hogwarts. After Hogwarts, he’d work in the Ministry, trying to rise in ranks to become Minister one day. Though he’d fall short of that goal, he’d work closely with the leader of the Ministry daily.
Abigail Griffin: Ravenclaw
Without a doubt in my mind, Abby is a Ravenclaw. And I think that’s why she butted heads with Clarke more than a few times. Abby was constantly working to come up with better solutions and didn’t rush into situations often.
At Hogwarts, Abby would excel in all of her classes except Divination and Flying. She’d also spend most of her free time helping Madame Pomfrey heal students. Abby would become one of the best Healers at St. Mungo’s shortly after Hogwarts.
Madi Griffin: Gryffindor
As the second Commander we really got to know in the show, Madi showed how brave she was even as a child. Maybe it’s because Clarke raised her to be brave and strong, but Madi has rarely wavered in her courage. She even sacrificed herself to save her friends and family.
Madi’s favorite class would be Care of Magical Creatures, but she’d also be highly talented in Defense Against the Dark Arts. She’d be a Gryffindor Seeker during her time at Hogwarts, as well. After leaving the school, she’d work in the Magical Creatures department at the Ministry.
It might seem strange to say Indra is a Hufflepuff, but she is. Yes, she’s brave, but what she values more than bravery is her bonds to Octavia, Gaia, and other characters in the show. She even goes against her training to serve the Commander to save Gaia, Octavia, and their group in season seven.
At Hogwarts, Indra’s best classes are Defense Against the Dark Arts and Divination (though she doesn’t enjoy the latter much). She’d also be the best Beater Hufflepuff has ever seen. Indra would leave school to become an Auror, quickly rising in the ranks to Chief Auror by age 30.
John Murphy: Slytherin
Murphy is a Slytherin, and there’s nothing you could say to change my mind. He’s not ambitious compared to many other characters, but he’s sneaky and a cockroach who just won’t die. I can’t think of any other house that could handle his personality. And ironically, he fell in love with Emori, a Gryffindor.
Murphy would do well in all of his classes, but he’d manage to hide that to avoid attention. Though, he does end up in detention quite often. That’s how he and Emori would have met. Shortly after Hogwarts, the duo would get married and run a wand-making business together.
Monty Green: Ravenclaw
I already knew Monty was a Ravenclaw from the moment he popped onscreen in season one. But what really solidified that in my mind was how he thought up a plan to save the others by finding a new planet instead of waiting on Earth. Only a Ravenclaw would think up that plan so quickly and not have any doubts about the logistics.
Without a doubt, Monty would be the best student of his year at Hogwarts. The only class he’d struggle in would be Flying, but he manages to get the hang of it by his second year. After Hogwarts, he would become an inventor, coming up with ways to meld Muggle technology and magic without too many kinks and mess-ups.
Raven Reyes: Ravenclaw
Raven is another character that I knew immediately was a Ravenclaw. She’s constantly learning and coming up with new solutions to problems. She even solved how to fix her brain by stopping and restarting her heart all by herself in season four.
Much like Monty, Raven would be the best student of her year (she’s older than Monty by a couple years). In addition to being Head Girl her seventh year, she’d be the Ravenclaw Seeker from her fourth to seventh years. After Hogwarts, she would become an inventor and work with Monty after he graduated.
Octavia Blake: Gryffindor
As Octavia is one of my favorite characters in The 100, it breaks my heart we don’t share a Hogwarts house. Regardless, she perfectly embodies the Gryffindor traits from the moment she steps foot on Earth. Even as “Blodreina,” she’s just a bit more reckless than before.
Octavia’s best classes would be Defense Against the Dark Arts and Transfiguration; she’d also be a Beater for Gryffindor’s Quidditch team for her last three years at school. After Hogwarts, she’d become an Auror, becoming Indra’s protégé.
Bellamy Blake: Hufflepuff
While his younger sister is a Gryffindor, Bellamy is a Hufflepuff. Yes, he has many traits associated with Gryffindors, like being led by his heart rather than his head, but his values lie within his bonds to Clarke, Octavia, and those he spent five years in space with. (At least until he joined Cadogan.)
If Bellamy went to Hogwarts, he’d excel in Care of Magical Creatures, Potions, and Charms. He’d also master becoming an Animagus (a black cat) just to prove to himself he could. After Hogwarts, he’d become a Magizoologist like Newt Scamander.
Clarke Griffin: Gryffindor
Clarke is a Gryffindor that tried to be a Ravenclaw for years. Though people call her the “head” to Bellamy’s “heart,” she’s constantly following what her heart wants. She runs into everything headfirst, primarily where Madi’s concerned.
Clarke’s best classes would be Potions, Herbology, and Transfiguration; however, she’d have some of the highest marks in all her classes. She’d be talked into joining the Quidditch team in her fifth year by Lexa, becoming the team’s Keeper.
After Hogwarts, she would become a Healer like her mother but would do a little Cursebreaking work on the side. And just to address the elephant in the fandom: while Clarke and Lexa would have been together at Hogwarts, Bellamy and Clarke would end up together as adults.
