Top 5 characters that are definitely in Ravenclaw

Today’s T5W topic is characters that embody my Hogwarts house. I’m pretty solidly Ravenclaw so I’m gonna pick characters that are Ravenclaw-y too!

If you’d like to participate in Top 5 Wednesday, you can do so here!

According to the Harry Potter wiki, traits that Ravenclaws possess are:

  • Intelligence
  • Wit
  • Wisdom
  • Creativity
  • Originality
  • Individuality
  • Acceptance

So with those in mind:

Alise Finbok from The Rain Wild Chronicles by Robin Hobb

City of DragonsAlise is the daughter of a prominent trader who enters a marriage of convenience with a man who is a bit of a dick. But through her marriage contract, Alise is able to journey up the Rain Wild River to lands of the Elderlings, a long-dead people who left nothing but ruins behind. Her goal in life is to catalogue and record every bit of information she can learn about dragons and the Elderlings. A pioneer of knowledge.

 

Tyrion Lannister from A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)The only Ravenclaw (or Hufflepuff, arguably) in a family of Slytherins, Tyrion is another one that’s very apt to gather knowledge. He’s intelligent and quick-witted. No point going into further detail because, well, pop culture.

 

 

 

 

Winry Rockbell from Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa

Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 5 (Fullmetal Alchemist, #5)I could also see arguments for Gryffindor here, but I think due to Winry’s intelligence and her lack of risk-taking, she’s more of a Ravenclaw. Winry is the Elric Brothers’ childhood friend and automail mechanic. She’s very good at what she does, and she gets rather nerdy and excited when being shown new automail technology. She’s fantastic.

 

 

Karris White Oak from the Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks

The Black Prism (Lightbringer, #1)Karris is one of my favorite characters in the series if not my favorite. She’s always calculating, refining her techniques, predicting opponents’ motivations. And she’s really weirdly poised while doing it all. Karris is classy, and very, very Ravenclawy.

 

 

 

The Fool from the Tawny Man trilogy by Robin Hobb

Golden Fool (Tawny Man, #2)The Fool is the reason why I decided to participate this week. He was the first character to pop into my head when I started brainstorming. He’s creative, he’s refined, he’s intelligent, he’s definitely an individual, he’s accepting and loving, he has a wit that is both funny and mischievous. I think every needs a Fool to be their buddy.

And that’s it! You know, it was weird – to compose this list, I just went down through my ‘read’ list on goodreads, paused at each book and picked out a few characters… it was really really easy to be like ‘no, he’s a gryffindor’ or ‘no she’s a slytherin’. Like, it was no problem categorizing them. Harry Potter is so prolific, man.

So what do you think! Agree? Disagree?
