While Klaus was much loved, there were many other villains on the show that were fan favorites. Each villain had their own unique personalities and characteristics that shine through and, in a crossover universe with Harry Potter, would have made some interesting Hogwarts students, but what houses would they have been in?

Katherine Pierce (Nina Dobrev) was one of Elena’s doppelgängers who appeared throughout the show’s eight seasons. She was a love interest to both Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and had many plans, including destroying the town of Mystic Falls.
Katherine was a cunning and manipulative person with a huge ambition to find her daughter. She was determined to destroy the city that was causing her great pain using the means available, from convincing the citizens to follow her to using her previous attachments to the Salvatores to complete her plans. These place her in Slytherin.

Although he has some Ravenclaw traits such as his intelligence, his loyalty to his craft and the school, he forces him to be sorted into Hufflepuff.
As the husband of Qetsiyah and one of Stefan Salvatore’s first doppelgangers, Silas had one goal: to destroy the other side, where all supernatural beings reside after death, and save his love, Amara (Nina Dobrev).
Resourcefulness, cunning and determination are some of the qualities demonstrated by the Slytherin house, which Silas all has. He has to make do with what he has, from the 1st century BC. and brought into modern times. His determination stretched over centuries, both trying to escape and the cunning of manipulating those around him to achieve his goal.

Sybil shows signs of a Hufflepuff but is ultimately better as a Slytherin. As a Hufflepuff, she shows loyalty to Cade as his soul harvester; however, a Slytherin’s classic traits come to the fore more with her cunning and ambition. Her manipulation of Damon and Enzo is a big one, using other people to do her bidding. However, she is also ambitious with her goal of being young forever, using the resources of the sinners around her to achieve it.

She had been the one who created the first vampires and changed her children after the loss of one of her sons to keep them all safe.

While many of the show’s mighty witches can easily be placed in Ravenclaw, Esther can easily be sorted into Hufflepuff. The motivations behind the emergence of vampirism were loyalty and devotion to her family, as she wanted them to be together forever. These are both traits of Hufflepuffs, along with hard work and kindness, which can be seen in flashbacks and in the spin-off, The originals.

As the final villain in Season 8, Arcadius was the epitome of The Vampire Diaries of the devil, nicknamed Cade. He had been someone who was mistreated in the past, so he wanted to punish those with dark secrets.
Though the motives of his punishments were questionable, Arcadius would be sorted into Hufflepuff. He has a friendly demeanor when not terrorizing the sinners and works hard to keep the world peaceful. He has a high dedication to his goals and a high tolerance for those who work for him, such as Sybil and her selfish actions.
2 Rayna Cruz

Klaus Mikaelson, one of the Originals and beloved antagonist, became an ally throughout the show. His goals had been to break a curse hiding his werewolf bloodline and create a hybrid army of vampires.
While many would argue that Klaus is a Slytherin, he has many traits that would place him in Gryffindor.
