Slytherin produces more than its share of Dark wizards, but also turns out leaders who are proud, ambitious and cunning. Merlin is one particularly famous Slytherin.

Slytherins love the colors black, green, silver and grey. They’re very stylish, but they also dare to try out something different.

A Slytherin girl loves her uniform, she’s just proud to show off her house colors. During free time, she likes to wear something comfortable, even though she’d hate to admit that.

A Slytherin boy will wear his uniform or a black costume. He’ll always be dressed neat and close to perfect.

Slytherin girls will always slay their outfit, even when they slept bad and are wearing sweatpants. One way or another, they’re always there to show you their pride. They adore looking elegant, but if they don’t want to put too much effort in it, they’ll come up with an original, beautiful accessoire.

Slytherin boys make it easy for themselves. Black? Yes. Always? Of course.

5 | being a slytherin student at hogwarts

“Those cunning folk use any means, to achieve any ends.” Slytherin students are known for being resourceful and full of determination when it comes to their ambitions and goals.

A Slytherin girl is ambitious and cunning. As an achievement-oriented person, she is well aware that a good education is the key to pursuing her goals. If she thinks that a certain subject will help her stretch her potential and bring her a step closer towards her desired goals, she will study hard and soak up the knowledge for it.

A Slytherin boy has highly developed senses of self-preservation. This means that he tends to hesitate before acting upon something, so as to weigh the possible outcomes before deciding on what he wants to do.

Firstly, Slytherins are good at History Of Magic. Most Slytherins are half-bloods or pure-bloods, which means that they’ve lived their whole life in the magic world, and the knowledge that they’ve accumulated over time comes from their parents - which is a huge reason why a lot isn’t new to them when they go to Hogwarts.

Secondly, there’s the Study Of Ancient Runes. In order for these ambitious Slytherins to succeed, they have to know the past, present and possibly future of a certain subject. Like History of Magic, Slytherins are good at learning and memorising, so they tend to excel in this subject as well.

Last but not least, Potions. This subject requires extra attention and awareness, because students have to learn the correct way of brewing potions by using specific recipes and ingredients. Plus, the fact that professor Severus Snape favours the Slytherin house allows Slytherins to achieve even better results than the other houses for this particular subject.
