Who Are Some Of The Most Well-Known Ravenclaw Characters In Harry Potter?


One of the most underrated Hogwarts houses is Ravenclaw. Hogwarts founder Rowena Ravenclaw founded the house and has been prized for its wisdom and love of learning. Harry Potter has known several Ravenclaw characters across his adventures.

What’s more, several of his closest friends have been Ravenclaw students. For example, his female best friend Hermione Granger almost ended up in Ravenclaw when they were sorted during their sorting ceremony.

Well-Known Ravenclaw Characters

Luna Lovegood

One of Harry Potter’s dearest friends is Luna Lovegood. In the year below him at Hogwarts, she is introduced to him by Ginny Weasley, the sister of his best friend, Ron. Luna was often considered loopy because of her beliefs.

Years after the Seconding Wizarding War, Harry and Ginny would name their only daughter, Lily Luna, after their longtime friend. She is also the only living person a Potter child is named after. It has been suggested that Lily Luna was also named after Remus Lupin, whose nickname was Moony.

Filius Flitwick

The head of Ravenclaw House is Filius Flitwick, the conductor of the Hogwarts Choir and the Charms Professor. He was also a champion duelist.

Marietta Edgecombe

A friend of Cho Chang, Marietta Edgecombe, was a year above Harry, Ron and Hermione. After the death of Cho’s boyfriend, Cedric Diggory, Marietta was the only person who remained friends with her. Furthermore, she joined Dumbledore’s Army and was suspicious of Harry’s intentions. Moreover, she was later discovered to be a mole thanks to a hex Granger cast over the sign-up sheet.

Cho Chang

Harry Potter’s first girlfriend, Cho Chang, was in the same year as Marietta Edgecombe and was a member of Dumbledore’s Army. She hated Hermione after she hexed the sign-up sheet for Dumbledore’s Army, and Marietta was discovered to be a mole who reported the group to Umbridge. She would later marry a muggle after her time at Hogwarts and survival of the second wizarding war.

Helena Ravenclaw

Helena was the daughter of Hogwarts founder Rowena Ravenclaw. The Bloody Baron, who was in love with her, killed her after Rowena had sent him to fetch her daughter to see her before she died. She would also serve as the House Ghost for Ravenclaw.

In conclusion, she hid her mother’s diadem (tiara) and was the only person able to tell Harry where it was so he could destroy the Horcrux within.
