- Emric Armand: 1920’s squid-fighter (like a bull-fighter but with giant squid) – killed during a fight with the giant squid in 1923. (Giant squid fighting was a popular fad in the late 1910’s to mid 1920’s)
Situated in a separate building across the lake from the Slytherin common room, away from the general dramatics of the castle, with views of the Forbidden Forest. On fairly good terms with the Slytherins as they ‘share’ the lake. Has a weekly house bananagrams tournament. Inter-house board game competitions - mainly with the Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws. Mainly just there, trying their best to get a good wizarding education.
