Your Middle Earth Race, Based on Your Hogwarts House

Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings are basically the same…right?

If you don’t already know your Hogwarts house, go get sorted (at Pottermore, Buzzfeed, Zimbio, or PlayBuzz) (please note that you may get different results from different quizzes) and then come back to find your corresponding Middle Earth race.

GRYFFINDOR

You are a dwarf. Your friends and family are your world and you will fight for what’s right, to the death if needs be.

Famous Gryffindors: Fili, Kili, and Gimli

HUFFLEPUFF

You are a hobbit. You live next to the kitchen and enjoy the good things in life, but when the going gets tough, you step up.

Famous Hufflepuffs: Bilbo, Frodo, and Samwise the Brave

RAVENCLAW

You are an elf. You’re smarter than everyone, and everyone knows being smart is exactly the same as being right.

Famous Ravenclaws: Galadriel, Elrond, and Arwen

SLYTHERIN

You are a wizard. You have an agenda and you’re going to accomplish it, right or wrong, no matter what.

Famous Slytherins: Saruman, Gandalf, and Radagast

Note no. 1: I have opted to only cover the ‘good’ races here, so you won’t find trolls, goblins, or humans. Or ents, because are they even good guys? Who knows!

Note no. 2: An alternate method takes into consideration the location of the Hogwarts house common rooms, which slightly changes the assignments: Gryffindor tower goes to the Wizards; Hufflepuff (by the kitchens!) stays with the Hobbits; Ravenclaw tower stays with the Elves; and Slytherin’s dungeon goes to the Dwarves.
