Since its release, the Harry Potter series has pulled other shows into its universe. Fans of all kinds love to categorize their favorite characters into one of the four Hogwarts houses. So, in honor of Ravenclaw Pride Day, here are five non-Potter characters that show all the signs of a true Ravenclaw!
- Sam Winchester from Supernatural

Sam Winchester is the true research king of the Supernatural universe. He knows everything about everything, and in a world overflowing with new creatures, Sam is ready to learn. Add Sam’s witty personality and his love for teaching others, and you’ve got a Ravenclaw on your hands. And don’t forget the fact that he (as a homeless teen) got a full-ride merit scholarship to Stanford University.
- Matilda from Matilda

The intellectual, witty Matilda is the epitome of a Ravenclaw. Her love for learning, books, and that clever personality sorts her into the house of blue and gold. But don’t get it confused, Matilda learns on her own time, like any good Ravenclaw. She would be bored with monotonous studies, eager to learn what she can from her wagon of books. Matilda has enough ambition and brainpower to wow any Hogwarts professor, and she can move things with her mind! She’s already such a great witch.
- Stiles Stilinski from Teen Wolf

Here’s to another researching king. Stiles Stilinski: smart, loyal, clever, and witty. After finding out that his best friend had been bitten by a werewolf, Stiles dives headfirst into the supernatural world. His wit and humor keeps his friends afloat as despair takes them head-on, but it’s his intellect that saves them time and time again. And maybe that Mountain Ash trick means he really can do magic.
- Alice from Alice in Wonderland

Alice, so bored with the teachings of her sister that she gets lost in a book and transported to a new world. Well, isn’t that cliché? Alice is quite the Ravenclaw. She is eager to explore and learn more about the world she’s been transported to, but she is still a daydreamer, meant to spend her days in the Ravenclaw tower with Luna Lovegood. Alice is also a clever girl; creative enough to wiggle her way out of any tough spot.
- Rainbow Johnson from Black-ish

Seeing as she’s a doctor, it’s obvious that Rainbow is all about the books. She’s a studious woman that sees intellect as a personality trait. But Rainbow is also a wise, caring mother. She loves her children and wants them to express themselves, to be creative and clever like she is. Rainbow values to individualistic nature of Ravenclaws, carving her own path through her life and her marriage.
