Hufflepuff House was founded by Helga Hufflepuff, one of the four Hogwarts founders. Helga's requirements were that to be admitted to her house, you had to be hard-working, friendly, and loyal. Hufflepuffs are more modest and less competative than the other three houses. Hufflepuff's head of house is Pamona Sprout, the Herbology teacher, and the Hufflepuff ghost is the Fat Friar. Hufflepuff's colors are black and yellow. Hufflepuff House is represented by an observant badger.
