Heir of Slytherin To Start At Hogwarts This Year

In a recent discovery a modern-day Heir of Slytherin has been identified.

The once magical Seidel family, who has been in hiding from the wizarding world for the last three generations have identified their daughter, Colleen, as a pure blooded witch from the lineage of Salazar Slytherin.

To confirm the assertions we were able to catch up with Minister of Magic who substantiated in a very brief interview that in-fact, the Seidel families line contains a a direct link to one of the founders of Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Assuming this is true, it would mean that Colleen's attendance at the magical institution will make her the first actual Heir of Slytherin to attend in multiple centuries.

When we spoke to Colleen's Mother directly she informed The Prophet

Colleen was always a very special child but until her 11th birthday we did not know she had any magical talents. Most of our family are squibs, even in light of our pure bloodline, and most of us have no affiliation with the magical world what so ever.

Upon further questioning, we asked Ms. Seidel how she knew her daughter was a witch

It's rather interesting really, you see. On Colleen's latest birthday she woke up at what must of been 12:01 on the dot and  had complained that she heard someone talking to themselves in a rather whispy and hissy voice.

Upon further inspection, she realized that what she was hearing was her brothers snake in the room over, next to hers. Imagine the surprise when she thought she had lost her mind and could talk to snakes.

While The Prophet has not gotten confirmation from either parties, it would stand to reason that the 11 year old Heir to Slytherin is also a Parseltongue based on the recollection of events provided by her mother.

For now, it is a mystery to the wizarding community what will become of Colleen during her first year at Hogwarts and what house The Sorting Hat will place her into, as well as how her peers will accept her.

For those of us who remember what happened the last time an Heir of Slytherin attended Hogwarts, we can only hope history does not repeat its self in some fashion or another.

We will continue to keep our readership informed as this story unfolds.

  • What interesting news! I wonder if she will go into Slytherin? The basalisk is dead, so it could not invoke too much harm to have her at Hogwarts, right?
