Sorting “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” Characters into Hogwarts Houses

Besides the Harry Potter series, the Percy Jackson & the Olympians books, written by Rick Riordan, were another fascinating fantasy series we enjoyed reading. Since the recent Percy Jackson and the Olympians TV adaption has wrapped its first season on Disney+, we thought it would be a good idea to sort the various characters into their respective Hogwarts House.


Percy Jackson – Gryffindor



Like Harry, Percy is brave to the core, selfless, and constantly willing to sacrifice himself to save his friends. He did so when he was willing to sacrifice himself so Annabeth could get Aries’s shield, and when he was willing to stay in the Underworld if it meant that his friends and mother could get back up and be alright. These honorable acts make him a Gryffindor.


Annabeth Chase – Ravenclaw



As the child of Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom, she is genetically predisposed to have intelligent characteristics. She has demonstrated that intellect in the first season from her tactical strategy in capturing the flag to working out Hephaestus’s tricks in the carnival, and proved herself as a Ravenclaw.


Grover Underwood – Hufflepuff



Grover is a Hufflepuff true and true. He is fiercely loyal to his friends, even disclosing to Percy that his mother is still alive even though both Chiron and Mr. D advised him not to. He is also incredibly selfless and willing to risk himself for the quest, even if that means sitting and attempting to get the God of War on their cause.


Sally Jackson – Gryffindor



Raising the demi-god son of Poseidon must have been difficult, but Sally rose to the occasion and raised a great one. Over the years, she constantly put herself and her needs behind those of her sons and faced the extraordinary challenges that came with Percy being part-god head-on. Despite her lack of powers, she still put herself in front of a Minotaur to protect her son and get him to the safety of Camp Half-Blood. This bravery makes her a Gryffindor.


Luke Castellan – Slytherin



Luke initially presented himself as Percy’s friend and was initially helpful by giving him Hermes’s shoes. However, this was all part of his plan as he used his resourcefulness and cleverness to manipulate and betray Percy into giving the master lighting bolt to Kronos and starting a war between the Gods. The fact that he is willing to deceive people makes him a Slytherin.


Ares – Slytherin



Although initially helpful to Percy and his friends, his motives were incredibly duplicitous when it was revealed that he was manipulating the situation to start a war between the gods.


Poseidon – Gryffindor



He isn’t much of a character for the majority of Percy’s life, but he plays a pivotal role in the final episode of the season when he saves Percy from Zeus and offers his surrender. This brave action is a Gryffindor trait.
