Who is the wisest and wittiest Ravenclaw from the Harry Potter franchise? There may be differences between the Harry Potter book series and the films, but what the Sorting Hat looks for when sorting a student into Ravenclaw doesn't change. Known to be creative, curious and fiercely individual, Ravenclaws are known for their academic fervor, showing the same sort of laser-focus of the eagle on their blue and silver (blue and bronze in the books) coat of arms.

Which of these Hogwarts students did the Sorting Hat best choose to guess the riddles to enter the Ravenclaw Tower? Luna Lovegood, who never let social norms get in the way of her vivid curiosity, is top of the list.

Flitwick is the Charms Master at Hogwarts and the Head of Ravenclaw House. His squeaky voice matches his tiny stature; he stands on a stack of books in order to see over the top of his desk and sits on a pile of cushions at the staff table. Flitwick's teaching style seems to be rather laid back in comparison to other professors and he is generally well-liked by students. He has
