LOL - If the place is on fire, the Ravenclaws will be busy making plans to 
improve the fire safety system while the other houses will be putting out 
the fire.

Oh, Miles is a Slytherin, all right.

No, never. They are both so Ravenclaw it hurts.

Ekaterin can't be anything else.

Mark has his crusade, all right, but it's personally based, which is very 
Slytherin. They're apparently great ones for revenge. Kareen? Good question. 
They both have a very good business sense, which is more common among Puffs 
ans Slyths (different approach, of course!)

Aral is Slytherin, and so too is Alys, I

Alys is a Hufflepuff. She is essentially Gregor's Gatekeeper (on the social 
front), a very Puff preoccupation, and she always and forever knows what the 
Done Thing is.

Pat, one of the excessively Ravenclaw, if not excessively bright, and 
decidedly a dedicat of the Sister.
