I am almost a Ravenclaw, I’m pretty creative and independent but I was sorted in Gryffindor so oh well…here are the top five book characters that I think are Ravenclaws:
1. Eliza Makepeace – The Forgotten Garden
I can’t quite put into words how much Eliza means to me, she’s such a perfect character. I think she belongs in Ravenclaw because of her creative mind, she’s a brilliant writer. She is also fiercely independent, mainly because she’s had to be, she’s inquisitive and loves to explore the grounds where she ends up living. She also as a child used to watch people on the streets of London through a gap in her wall.
2. Tyrion Lannister – A Song of Ice and Fire
My darling! Tyrion is so brave and funny, but underneath that is so much pain and rejection. One of my favourite quotes is from Tyrion “A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone.” Indeed it does, Tyrion wasn’t able to follow in his brother’s footsteps and become a knight so he read and gathered knowledge instead. He is witty and wonderful, he’s a great strategist and I think Ravenclaws would love to have him amoung them.
3. Alice – Alice in Wonderland
I’ve always loved Alice in Wonderland, it’s such a strange story! Alice is curious, inquisitive and must be creative to imagine all of Wonderland. She reminds me of Luna, dreamy amd floaty. I think they would be good friends.
4. Lisbeth Salander – Millenium series
Lisbeth is an absolute badass. Possibly not your typical Ravenclaw with her punk way of dressing and standoffish manner but she is so clever. Lisbeth loves learning just for the sake of it, especially maths and complicated equations. She has a photographic memory so she can remember everything she reads, and she can understand all the complicated mathematic and scientific topics she reads up on. Once she finds a problem to solve, be it a crime, mystery or equation, she won’t stop until she’s found the answer.
5. Rhaegar Targaryen – A Song of Ice and Fire
Although Rhaegar dies before the events in A Song of Ice and Fire he’s still talked about a fair bit. He was a prince but not proud or arrogant. He was a musician, he played the harp and sang beautifully. As a child, he preferred to sit and read on his own rather than play with other children. He learned to read at a very young age. Although he was a great knight, his true passion lay in his music.
Have a great Tuesday! Who would you sort into Ravenclaw?
