Godric Gryffindor

Much like the Hogwarts house he founded, Gryffindor, Godric 'from wild moor' was known for his bravery, and his skills as an accomplished dueller. He even had a special sword created for him by Ragnuk the First, the finest of the goblin silversmiths. Legend has it that Godric was also the man who gave Hogwarts the Sorting Hat, a sentient piece of headwear that became the one to sort the school’s students into houses long after Godric and the other founders were gone.
