Welcome to Gryffindor!
Welcome to the noble house of Gryffindor. You belong in Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart, their daring, nerve and chivalry set Gryffindors apart. The particular characteristics of students sorted into Gryffindor are courage and chivalry. Its emblematic animal is the lion and its colours are red and gold. The founder was Godric Gryffindor.
Gryffindor emphasises the traits of courage as well as "daring, nerve, and chivalry," and thus its members are generally regarded as brave, though sometimes to the point of recklessness.
Notably, Gryffindor house contributed many members to Dumbledore's Army and the Order of the Phoenix. According to Phineas Nigellus Black, members of other houses, particularly Slytherin, sometimes feel that Gryffindors engage in "pointless heroics." Another Slytherin, Severus Snape, considered many Gryffindors to be self-righteous and arrogant, with no regard for rules.
However, this may be taken with a grain of salt, as Gryffindors and Slytherins have shared a fierce house rivalry since their founders, Godric Gryffindor and Salazar Slytherin, respectively, had a severe falling out over Slytherin's emphasis on blood purity.

"The House of Godric Gryffindor has commanded the respect of the wizarding world for nearly ten centuries."

Founder: Godric Gryffindor
