"Well, I'll start off with the basics. I'm sure you know there are four houses; Gryffindor, the lion, colours red and gold; Ravenclaw, the eagle, colours blue and bronze; Hufflepuff, the badger, colours black and yellow, like my hair; Slytherin, the snake, colors green and silver," Wendy began.
"The Sorting Hat, when placed on your head, evaluates you and will put you in a house based on, well, mostly personality, but also intelligence. Gryffs are upposed to be courageous and chivalrous, thought I've met more than a few who put that last word to shame, the Claws are supposed to be intelligent and creative, Puffs are supposed to be tolerant and loyal, and Slyths are supposed to be cunning and ambitious. Each house has its own set of both snobs and good people, though last year there were a lot of obnoxious Gryffs. Anyways..." Wendy continued to go on about the houses and the school, enjoying the chance to be the first to tell a newbie about all this stuff. Though the words she used were plain enough, Wendy had an odd and slightly dramatic way of speaking them. She scratched Cleopatra under the chin.
