Sorting “Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga” Characters into Hogwarts Houses

Last month, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga dropped on Netflix. The film follows an Icelandic duo (Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdóttir) who, through a freak accident, gets the chance to fulfill their lifelong dream when they enter the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest. While we were watching, we couldn’t help but wonder which Hogwarts Houses some of these characters would be in.


1. Lars Erickssong – Slytherin



Lars’s greatest ambition in the world is to enter and win the Eurovision Song Contest. He is the leader of the group, writing the majority of the band’s songs. His ambition often clouds his judgment, particularly where Sigrit is concerned, since he doesn’t want to embark on a romantic relationship in case it hurts the act. In addition, he is a very proud character, which leads to him deserting her after their semifinal performance. All of these characteristics put him in Slytherin.


2. Sigrit Ericksdóttir – Gryffindor



While Sigrit shares Lars’s Eurovision dream, she also has another reason why winning Eurovision is important to her – if they win, Lars might return her feelings. Her loyalty to him often means that her music takes a backseat to his. It is not until she meets Alexander that she is finally brave enough to tell Lars the truth. Plus, following their disastrous semifinal performance, she is brave enough to return to the performers’ green room and face up to it. Her bravery and loyalty make her a great Gryffindor.


3. Alexander Lemtov – Slytherin



Alexander is an ambitious and cunning character who initially tries to break up Fire Saga so Sigrit would sing with him, which would boost his career. He uses his vast resources and preys on the faults in their relationship to do this.


4. Erick Erickssong – Hufflepuff

Erick values hard work and is often disappointed by his unsuccessful, middle-aged son, who refuses to give up on his dream for a more productive lifestyle. However, after seeing his son give up on his Eurovision dream, Erick pushes him to go back and fight. Ultimately, his loyalty and love for his son are stronger than anything else.


5. Mita Xenakis – Hufflepuff



Mita is one of the other competitors in the contest, so it would have been so easy for her to be cruel to the other performers. Instead, she is a great friend to Alexander by supporting him and giving him some much-needed advice, and she tries to help Fire Saga in their relationship.


6. Katiana Lindsdóttir – Hufflepuff



Unfortunately, Katiana dies in a boat explosion quite early on in the film, so not much is known about her. However, her ghostly appearances following her death are all to warn Lars about Victor, so her postmortem actions put her in Hufflepuff.


7. Victor Karlosson – Slytherin

Victor’s determination that hosting Eurovision will bankrupt Iceland makes him do awful things, including killing Katiana and the other contestants on the boat. He uses his resources to get what he wants, no matter the cost. He is so set in his ways that he attempts to kill Lars before he is stopped by the elves.
