Gryffindor House

"You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart
"

So said the Sorting Hat. Gryffindor, one of the Hogwarts School houses, was founded by Godric Gryffindor. The emblematic animal is a lion, its house colours are scarlet and gold. And Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington, also known as "Nearly Headless Nick" is the House ghost.

And of course, Gryffindor is well-known as the house that Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley were sent to by the Sorting Hat!!
