Top 5 characters that would be sorted into Gryffindor

Hey everyone! I am back again with a Top 5 Tuesday post. Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme that the lovely Shanah @Bionic Bookworm does. If you are interested in doing any of her topics on your blog she welcomes it!

February is a themed month based on the Hogwarts Houses and today’s topic is Gryffindor. In case you all don’t know, I have copied the traits from Shanah, so thank you. 🙂


They are experience oriented, honest, practical, blunt, passionate, playful, funny, trusting, idealistic, stubborn and procrastinators. They live in the moment, don’t take themselves seriously, are wary of manipulators and liars, have a strong moral centre, and are unafraid to seize opportunities and make changes.

We can do anything with this broad topic so I have decided to list 5 characters from various books that I think will be sorted into Gryffindor if they went to Hogwarts.

1. Captain Carswell Thorne 

Thorne, from Cinder by Marissa Meyers is a brave and stubborn character. He hates to listen to others or do what he is told. He likes to make his own rules and well, break any if necessary. He loves to help others and even in peril, he tries hard to succeed. All these qualities of his make him a sure shot Gryffindor.

2. Dorian Havilliard

Dorian, from Throne of Glass, is sweet and innocent and strives to do the right thing. He does not judge people like he did not judge Celaena/Aelin when he discovered she was actually Fae. He is loyal to Chaol so I guess he is a Hufflepuff but on the other hand, as we move through the books we find that he is brave and he will do anything to protect those he loves, so he could go to Gryffindor as well, and another point is that the royal colours of Adarlan are Red and Gold which are also the colours of Gryffindor so I think he will be a perfect Gryffindor.

3. Feyre Archeron 

Feyre, from A Court of Thorns and Roses, is another brave and loyal character. She loves her friends and family and would do anything for them. She was just a child but she hunted and brought home food and money so her family did not have to starve. She loved Tamlin and so she went through all of Amarantha’s trials to save him and the rest of the people. She is caring and courageous. She is not afraid of what may come her way.

4. Jace Herondale 

Jace. from The Mortal Instruments, by Cassandra Clare is another sure shot Gryffindor., With his unpredictable moves to his reckless tendencies, he does anything to get what he wants. He may love a small few but for them, he would do anything. He’ll give up his life for them and would bargain anything to make sure that they lived. In fact, he dies in the City of Heavenly Fire while trying to ave others but is thankfully resurrected!

5. Percy Jackson 

Now, this one needs no explanations. Percy often does not think before doing and well, he is brave. He goes on various quests and defeats countless monsters, not to mention he helps destroy Kronos and Gaia. He is also very reckless with how he speaks and ends up disrespecting Gods. His bravery can also be seen in how he is successful in defeating Ares, the God of War.

What characters do you think would be sorted into Gryffindor?  Do you agree with the characters I sorted into Gryffindor? Tell me in the comments below. 

Peace out cuties ♥

  1. At first I was going to argue that Thorne would be closer to Slytherin, but the more I think about it, the more I think you’re 100% right. I love this list.<3
