Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

J.K. Rowling is truly the heir of Tolkien, so vast, deep, and complex is her Wizarding World universe!!

On Pottermore she just revealed, at long last, the North American school of magic (located in Massachusetts upon Mt. Greylock) - complete with a Sorting Ceremony for four completely new Houses.

Ilvermorny Crest

"It is sometimes said of the Ilvermorny houses that they represent the whole witch or wizard: the mind is represented by Horned Serpent; the body, Wampus; the heart, Pukwudgie and the soul, Thunderbird. Others say that Horned Serpent favours scholars, Wampus, warriors, Pukwudgie, healers and Thunderbird, adventurers"

(Rowling just said (and I quote) "there is no equivalence between Hogwarts and Ilvermorny Houses.")

For myself, I was sorted into the Horned Serpent. (My Hogwarts House is Ravenclaw)
