We’re with you whatever happens.
And under here, Hedwig”—Harry pulled open a door under the stairs—“is where I used to sleep; You never knew me then— Blimey, it’s small, I’d forgotten… .”
Harry looked around at the stacked shoes and umbrellas, remembering how he used to wake every morning looking up at the underside of the staircase, which was more often than not adorned with a spider or two. Those had been the days before he had known anything about his true identity; before he had found out how his parents had died or why such strange things often happened around him. But Harry could still remember the dreams that had dogged him, even in those days: confused dreams involving flashes of green light and once—Uncle Vernon had nearly crashed the car when Harry had recounted it—a flying motorbike..

From her statue in Ravenclaw Tower and Xenophilius Lovegood’s bust of her, Rowena Ravenclaw was a beautiful yet austere-looking and slightly intimidating woman. She was tall, had long dark hair and dark eyes, and spoke in a pronounced Scottish accent.
United by the common goal of creating the world’s best magic school, Rowena Ravenclaw and her friends Helga Hufflepuff, Godric Gryffindor and Salazar Slytherin built Hogwarts Castle together and established Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry sometime around 993.
It is a popular historical theory that the location and name of Hogwarts were both chosen by Ravenclaw, who dreamt that a warty hog was leading her to a cliff by the lake. She selected her students according to intelligence and wisdom. Ravenclaw House therefore values a sharp mind, wisdom, creativity, and cleverness in its members.
At some point, Ravenclaw bore a daughter, Helena, who was taught by Rowena herself at Hogwarts. But after her graduation from Hogwarts School, Helena stole her mother’s diadem, which was said to enhance the wisdom of the wearer: Helena was jealous of her mother’s famous intellect and took the diadem with her to Albania, far away from Rowena’s reach, in hopes of surpassing her. Ashamed of her daughter’s betrayal, she opted to keep her daughter’s treachery a secret from others, and denied it even from her fellow founders. Soon after, Rowena fell fatally ill. Disregarding her treason, she asked the Baron, who was in love with Helena, to go and find her daughter, merely wishing to see her one last time. The Baron eventually tracked her to a forest in Albania but when she refused to return with him, he flew into a fit of rage, furious at her refusal and envious of her freedom, and stabbed her. Immediately overcome with guilt, he then took his own life (the two would later become, respectively, Ravenclaw and Slytherin house ghosts). Thus, Rowena did not get the chance to reconcile with her daughter before their untimely deaths. Legend had it that a “broken heart” added to her early demise. This story may have had origin in her estrangement with her daughter.
