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 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

  • 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

  • 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!

  • I feel as if everyone would be prejudiced about her based on just her ancestry. What if she is very good person? If she is sorted into Slytherin, it’s not like Slytherins are evil. They are just highly ambitious and cunning.

  • 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!
