Remember when an eagle-eyed coder noticed the names of the four houses of Ilvermorny, the American version of Hogwarts, embedded in the code of the Pottermore website? Well, those house names are officially official, and as of Tuesday (June 28), you can now find out which one of them you'd belong in.
The new quiz will sort you into one of the four new houses — Thunderbird, Horned Serpent, Wampus, and Pukwudgie — of Ilvermorny, a school we'll see more of in the "Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them" movie later this year.
In addition to the new sorting quiz (it's not a sorting hat, though — Ilvermorny students are selected by standing in front of four enchanted carvings to see which one reacts to them), Pottermore has also released some much-needed background on the American magical school.
Unlike Hogwarts, Ilvermorny was founded by a single family headed by an Irish immigrant and descendent of both Salazar Slytherin and the Irish witch Morrigan. After her parents killed by an ancestor of Voldemort's for fraternizing with muggles, she fled to America, made friends with a bunch of magical creatures, married a "no-maj" man, and started a school based loosely on Hogwarts — but more accepting of non-magic families.
You can read the entire story of Isolt Sayre's family at Pottermore, and discover more about your house after taking the sorting quiz. Apparently, Thunderbird is a house that "favours adventurers." That doesn't sound very much like me, but hey, at least I'm keeping my magical abilities in the bird family, right? #Ravenclaw4Life.
