Hufflepuff is the favorite house of JK Rowling. Helga Hufflepuff believed in fair-mindedness. The philosophy of Hufflepuff is that everyone should be treated equally, so Hufflepuff House accepts every student, unlike other houses that require special characteristics. In other words, for you to be chosen in this Hogwarts house, you don’t require special traits. And that’s what makes Hufflepuff unique because it would make a special characteristic of people who are not fit to be in other houses but Hufflepuff. But still, Hufflepuffs are known for loyalty and hard work.
Hogwarts’ Four houses are the symbol of Fundamental human qualities and Hufflepuffs are known for their Kindness.
Characteristics of Hufflepuffs
Hufflepuffs are fair, loyal, honest, patient, and hard-working. They are selfless, they would do any good thing just because. They don’t brag about their victory. Integrity is the perfect word to define a Hufflepuff.
We don’t see much of Hufflepuff scenes in the movies. So, they are pretty much, misunderstood. So, we can understand them from Hufflepuffs. Let me ask you this! Do you like Cedric Diggory, a chosen Hogwarts student for Tri-Wizard? or do you like Newt Scamander, our hero from Fantastic Beasts, and where to find them and the crimes of Grindelwald.
They are both Hufflepuffs and we love them. As Dumbledore said in his speech, Cedric Diggory was a hard-working, fair-minded, kind, and most importantly fierce friend. And these are the great qualities of Hufflepuffs. The reason Cedric was chosen in the Tri-Wizard tournament was because he was the best student of Hogwarts at that time. Want to know more about characteristics? Watch again the Fantastic Beasts movie with a point of viewing who a Hufflepuff actually is. His love for the animals is the best example of Hufflepuffs’ act of selflessness.
In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, in the first match of Quidditch between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor, the seeker of the Hufflepuff team was Cedric Diggory. That time Harry fell from his broom and Cedric caught the Snitch, but when Cedric found out about it, he immediately offered a rematch. Oliver Wood who was the captain of Gryffindor quidditch refused it saying that they won fair and square. We can notice that even though Cedric knew that they won fair and square, he offered a rematch.
In the Triwizard tournament, Cedric asked Harry to take the Triwizard Cup as Harry saved his life twice by telling him about dragons and Viktor Krum in the maze.
Newt Scamander is not so much of a Harry. As Harry Potter movies are mostly about Gryffindors where we can see recklessness and brave actions. But we cannot expect the Gryffindor from a Hufflepuff. Newt is a good, calm, animal-loving person who lives his life and value every life form as equal. Many people don’t understand that the Fantastic Beasts series has the main character Hufflepuff and not Slytherin or Gryffindor or Ravenclaw. I believe J.K. Rowling made it awesome and different from Harry Potter as it focuses on the Hufflepuff character Newt Scamander. Here’s the thing you can do; while watching or reading the Fantastic beasts series just think about what Newt Scamander is doing and what characters from other houses would do and you will find the difference which will help you understand the character of Hufflepuff.
This is what Hufflepuffs are about. We always expect this kind of behavior from our friends, relatives, and competitors. Maybe this is the reason JK Rowling said Hufflepuff is her favorite house and not any other.
Hufflepuff colors are Yellow and Black, representing wheat and soil. Yellow color is the brightest and most energizing, it is associated with happiness and sunshine. Black represents a fixed moral nature of Hufflepuff just like the color has no different shades. Black color is also related to Earth, which is the element of the Hufflepuff House. And you would find that Hufflepuff is the only house that doesn’t have the color of the metal like other houses because they don’t need to shine and show off their achievements.
If you are thinking about metallic colors of other houses, then they are gold, silver, and bronze respectively for Gryffindor, Slytherin, and Ravenclaw.
The element Earth is a symbol of the life-giving and nurturing nature of Hufflepuffs. The House animal is a Badger. The badgers are protective, hardworking, and family-oriented animals. They are also a symbol of gathering family and friends. Professor Sprout, head of the Hufflepuff house is a Herbology teacher, related to the housing element Earth.
Hufflepuff Common Room
The Hufflepuff entrance is on the right-hand side of the Hogwarts kitchen corridor and behind a stack of barrels. You don’t require a password to enter the house. All you need to do is to tap the barrel in a way called the rhythm of Helga Hufflepuff and the lid will swing open. The wrong lid or rhythm will douse you in vinegar.
The Hufflepuff dormitory is cozy, welcoming, and feels sunny. The round common room is large, earthy, and has low ceilings. The common room gives an earthy feel with plants hanging all around, and some of them would sing and dance.
The House-Ghost is Fat-Friar.
Hufflepuff students stayed in the final battle of Hogwarts. As we know now that they don’t fight for pride or fame. They fight for what is right.
