"You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry,
Set Gryffindors apart."
Gryffindor is one of the four houses of Hogwarts. The namesake is given by Godric Gryffindor, one of the founders of Fogwarts. The house symbolizes bravery, nerve, self-sacrifice, chivalry and courage. The house mascot is the lion and the house colors are scarlet/red and gold/yellow. The house ghost is Sir Nicholas de MImsy-Porpington, also called as "Nearly Headless Nick" but he prefers being called "Sir Nicholas". The common room is located at the seventh floor on Gryffindor Tower.
