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?

      • i saw a comment on a diffrent post that someone was going to take their basilisk to hogwarts next year! thank god im pure blood.

          Making baslisks is actually really simple. (not saying its a good idea) get a chicken egg and put it under a toad. Has anyone here read fantastic beasts and where to find them? My great grand father wrote it.

  • I started Hogwarts a year ago. I read all about what happened to Harry Potter! Let’s all hope the chamber of secrets does not open again! Well maybe there is a new monster? I would hope she’s in Gryffindor though! We could be good friends! She’s not the same as Tom Riddle!

  • Merlin’s beard what awful news what if the same does happen again? It would be horrendous and unfortunate for she may even die or kill another there hope she doesn’t end up as Tom riddle

    • Its True – My mother {Luna lovegood} is friends with Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley and she told me after they told her the whole story

      Chloe Lovegod {daughter of Luna Lovegood / Heir of Ravenclaw} – 3rd year Ravenclaw

  • Woah that’s big news! There’s that slightest chance that she may unleash the extraordinary power of Slytherin once again!

  • It should be interesting to see how this year at Hogwarts will unfold can’t wait for the new term to start on September 1

  • Ok help me if there is more snakes in the chamber of seecrets im gonna be in the griffindor comonroom the whole tim un less some of my friends gets capured in there like ginny weasly. but im never gonna trust her i think she is up for the same as tom marvolo riddle

    • Possibly but I know her so maybe not I am in Slytherin and I recently found out she is my cousin so does that mean I am related so Salazar himself?!

  • I can’t believe it! I am a muggleborn so I hope the same thing that happened with Tom Riddle doesn’t happen again! But I will be happy if she is sorted to Slytherin!

  • Whatever house Miss. Seidel is sorted in she will be a wonderful student and her house will embrace her with open arms and bright smiles. Let us not forget the quote from Albus Dumbledore R.I.P. “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
    If not convinced look at Ablus Potter, he was sorted in Slytherin not Gryffindor like his parents, and they are proud of his decision everyday.

  • Well then, I do hope she’ll be sorted fairly and accepted by the house! I hope to meet her, as a Hufflepuff it may be unlikely for us to see each other often but it would be nice to have another friend in Slytherin! I hope others won’t tease her or hate her for her lineage, it would be such a bad year for the gal…

  • The sorting hat couldn’t decide where to place me. I lived in my own lodgings at Hogwarts. Since I didn’t have any affinity to any of the houses, I had permission to visit the house common rooms. It seems the houses are particularly good at certain subjects.
    Gryffindor is gifted with Defense Against The Dark Arts, there are swords and shields all over Gryffindor tower.
    Hufflepuff is gifted at Herbology, many plants sitting or hanging are scattered throughout Hufflepuff Basement.
    Ravenclaw is gifted at Astronomy, telescopes, star charts, and orrories everywhere in Ravenclaw Tower.
    Slytherin is gifted at Potions, Many cauldrons lay about Slytherin Dungeon.

  • Anonymous Gryffindor (Alice Granger-Weasley)

    Started Hogwarts few months ago, I met Colleen, really good fellow! We’re friends now, best friends. If you’re wondering, I’m in Gryffindor, and I happen to be Parseltongue as well! I am related to Harry Potter, he’s my uncle!

  • Miss. Seidel will have no problem at Hogwarts, she might get lots of attention, but she’ll deal with it. I had lots of attention when I attended Hogwarts, everywhere I went it was always the same. People would come up to me and ask about my hair, I couldn’t blame them. No one in living memory had ever seen hair at Hogwarts like mine. “Kevin’s hair is a piece of starry sky.” My hair is purple and dotted with silver spots like stars, by the way, the “stars” in my hair shimmer like real stars. Oh boy, the amount of times in Astronomy class when someone was looking through a telescope and spotted the arm of the galaxy, “sorry just Kevin’s hair, my mistake.”

  • I started Hogwarts also a year ago, I’m in Slytherin! Although, I’m the daughter of two Death Eaters, Bellatrix and Rodolphus Lestrange. I’ve seen her around. I am, too, a Parseltongue. My cousin is Draco Malfoy.

  • Interesting! She could be a nice girl, really! I’ve started at Hogwarts this year, but for the past few months I haven’t been able to attend online classes (curse this hex ‘Covid19’, it’s got Muggles frantic and it’s hard to use Muggle devices, even with help from my Muggle dad)… Not so good at this Muggle thing, ‘internet’ (though I’m half-blood)… Any idea what ‘Web-Site’ to use guys??

  • Has the ministry spoken to the muggle prime minister and the muggle president about these attacks? Muggles can be endangered also, and them finding out about our lot.

  • Daniel Jacob Kanttowitz

    I am a muggleborn wizard who received a invitation letter from Ilvermorny when i was 11. I unlike your typical wizard who receives a invitation to a wizard school like ilvermorny lost my temper and ripped the letter before I could process it all. I still want to go to wizard school though. as Ilvermorny isn’t an option anymore, is there any way I could go to Hogwarts?

  • It’s a good job too. My parents were killed in the battle of Hogwarts. Voldemort killed them himself. My mother tried to stop him killing my father so he killed her.

  • “Hogwarts Hogwarts Hoggy Warty Hogwarts teach us something please,
    Whether we bold and bold or young with scabby knees,
    Our heads with do with filling with some interesting stuff,
    For now they’re bear and full of air dead flies and bits of fluff,
    So teach us things worth knowing bring back forth what we forgot,
    Just do your best we’ll do the rest and learn until our brains all rot.”

    Music is one of the most powerful magic in the world.

  • I’m the Heir of Ravenclaw and no-one is prejuste about my heritige. I’m basically a celerity at hogwarts!

  • As the Heir of Ravenclaw, i’m trying to find out why the founders argued, causing Slytherin to leave the school. Maybe she knows something or she can help??

    • Wilhelmina Rabbajacke

      Actually I’m a Ravenclaw heir too (I hope we get to meet, I would love to talk!), I found out its because Slytherin wanted to be more er… selective about students to go to Hogwarts, precisely he only wanted to teach purebloods. Obviously the founders didn’t agree, so he left.

  • I am kind of wondering whether Luna Lovegood is related to Rowena ravenclaw. Luna married Newt Scamander’s great grandson or something, and I highly doubt that he is related to Raveclaw. Just wondering…

  • I am an heir of Slytherin. I have three pet basilisks. They’re my support animals and they’re blindfolded. I have five dragons, and lots more dangerous animals, but for some reason I have something special with animals so they don’t hurt anyone. They listen to me and follow all of my orders, and why would I use them for bad things. My dad wouldn’t use them for bad things either. He’s changed a lot since he was a child (my dad is Draco Malfoy). He’s not the one who got me the animals anyway, and him and my mom both know that I’m the heir of Slytherin! (Athena Malfoy, opened chamber of secrets first year, first year Slyfindor, Gryffindor and Slytherin combined, first year)

  • I have an idea. Everyone in Hogwarts and out, in the press and basically know she’s an heir, should take a mental pledge not to criticize and bug her if she’s not in Slytherin. She probably worrying her head off, poor girl, about being bullied if she is in anything other than Slytherin. I myself, am a first year in Hogwarts and I am in Gryffindor. I would very much like to be friends with her.

  • Grace (Hufflepuff)

    About a year ago I took a DNA Test for witches and wizards (I am a witch — half-blood) And I am a descendant of Helga Hufflepuff!

    ~Hufflepuff first year

  • Well we’ll have to keep an eye on her. We all know what happened last time the heir of Slytherin came to Hogwarts…

  • Hermione Granger (Minister of Magic)

    The Ministry of Magic is warning Schiler Mew to not to spread chaos into the students of Hogwarts.Due to your news students and even families are starting to backup slytherin more and this may cause yet another war between wizards.One more wrong step by you and 6 months of azkaban will be ready for you.
    Hopefully you understood,
    Hermione Granger,
    Minister of Magic.
    P.S.Whoa! I typed this much in just 20 seconds.

  • Wilhelmina Ravenclaw

    Oh dear! Well, that was a bit shocking for me but it would be good to meet another heir from a founder. There are heirs from many families from various houses, but not Slytherin. I won’t judge her though!
