About Hufflepuff House

"These belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal.
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil."

Hufflepuff is one of the four houses at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the others being Gryffindor, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. Hufflepuff is named for its founder, Helga Hufflepuff. Hufflepuff values hard work, tolerance, loyalty, and fair play in its students, and have produced the least amount of bad wizards out of any other house. The house mascot is the badger, with canary yellow and midnight black being its colours. The Head of Hufflepuff house is the Herbology teacher Pomona Sprout, and the house ghost is The Fat Friar. According to Rowling, Hufflepuff corresponds roughly to the element of earth.

The Hufflepuff dormitories and common room are located somewhere in the basement. The entrance is found behind a still life painting somewhere near the kitchens, and a password is required for entry. The Hufflepuff common room is filled with yellow hangings, fat armchairs, pot plants, and it has little underground tunnels leading to the dormitories, all of which have perfectly round doors, like barrel tops (much like a badger sett).

The most well-known Hufflepuffs include Cedric Diggory, Nymphadora Tonks, Newt Scamander, Hannah Abbott, Ernie Macmillan, Justin Finch-Fletchley, Susan Bones and Zacharias Smith.

I have loved Hufflepuff house for as long as I can remember. In virtually almost every Hogwarts House quiz I have done online, I've been sorted into Hufflepuff! They are the underdogs of Hogwarts and severely underrated and unappreciated. They are conscientious, loyal, just, honest, kind and true. I believe I embody many of the qualities that Hufflepuff possesses, and I was sorted into Hufflepuff on Pottermore which just further proves that I am a true 'Puff ;)
