The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a macabre and fantastic Netflix series that highlights the darkness of witchcraft in a way that the Harry Potter series only condemns to evil witches and wizards like Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters. While the dichotomy of good versus evil is handled with a deft hand at Hogwarts and J.K. Rowling is incredible with toeing the line to make her characters much more realistic with human flaws, we have to admit the dark nature of Sabrina is delightful to watch.
That's not to say that every witch and warlock in the series is of the Slytherin variety, however. In fact, many of the characters in the show are far from Voldemort's House, demonstrating the qualities of Gryffindor, Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw instead.
10 Zelda Spellman: Slytherin
While Sabrina's Aunt Zelda has definitely demonstrated more loyal qualities, putting family first in recent episodes and even defying her beloved Father Blackwood to the point of being imprisoned, she's still a Slytherin to her core. An ideal witch in the Church of Night, Zelda knows her place, deeply desires to please the Dark Lord and ultimately embraces everything dark and evil in her life, even if it means taking away her niece's happiness.
Zelda might embrace duty and tradition but she also puts herself first on a regular basis, especially when it comes to dalliances with Blackwood while his wife is pregnant. Miranda Otto is pretty much as far from Eowyn as she can get in this role.
9 Harvey Kinkle: Hufflepuff
While Harvey, Sabrina's ex-boyfriend, exhibits some Gryffindor-like qualities in terms of his willingness to dive into the mines to find his brother despite his own worst fears, he ultimately values fair play and patience above bravery. He works hard when his zombie brother returns to him, patiently waiting on him to fully return, and when he finds out the truth he is hurt and angry over the unfairness of the situation.
A Gryffindor might understand Sabrina's situation better, but Harvey, who does put up with a lot when it comes to his secretive girlfriend in the first part of Sabrina, is more of a salt-of-the-Earth kind of guy who will make someone a steadfast husband someday. He's just not cut out for adventuring. It's kind of hard to see why Sabrina would dismiss her dark baptism and put the town through all of its terror over a, let's face it, basic boyfriend like Harvey, especially in a series as feminist as this one.
8 Rosalind Walker: Ravenclaw
Roz is one of the smartest young women in her school. As she challenges banned books, attempts to help her friends reason out their problems and tackles her own issues like her pending blindness and The Cunning she's been gifted with, we see her make passionate yet sound decisions. Even when she's faced with her own feelings for Harvey, she uses her logic to reason out why and why not it's a good idea.
Unlike Harvey, who reacted to Sabrina's powers with a total knee-jerk response, Roz accepted her powers after logically figuring them out on her own and assessing them, even after she had misgivings of her own.
7 Hilda Spellman: Hufflepuff
Loyal, earnest and true, Hilda Spellman is the epitome of a Hufflepuff. Sure, she knows her way around some poison and she talks to spiders, but she knows that family and friends come first. She's so adamant that Sabrina maintain her friendships at her human school that she even visits the new principal--who happens to be Lilith, of course--and tries to rope her in on a plan to get Sabrina to return to school to nurture her friendships and happiness.
Kind and generous Hilda has consistently put her loved ones before her own self, even while excommunicated from the church, which makes her a true Hufflepuff.
6 Prudence: Slytherin
At one point in the first part of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, we might have considered Prudence more of a Ravenclaw. She definitely exhibited some keen planning, especially in terms of revenge plots. Her willingness to be sacrificed during the Feast of Feasts kind of negates her other decisions, though, and as we've seen since, we know that she's all about what's good for herself, ultimately making her a Slytherin.
Even when Prudence recognizes how terrible her father is, she still seeks his approval in order to obtain status as his legitimate child. It's only when she realizes that he'll never care for her when she acts against him.
5 Ambrose Spellman: Ravenclaw
Ambrose may exhibit many of the self-serving, cunning qualities of a Slytherin, but his keen intellect and willingness to learn new things and share that knowledge with Sabrina make him more of a Ravenclaw. Sabrina comes to Ambrose when she needs assistance not only because she trusts him but because she knows how much he values knowledge and sharing it with his cousin.
Those who recall the sitcom Sabrina series may recognize some of Sabrina's cat Salem's wit, humor and knowledge present in the character Ambrose in the new series. He pretty much replaced the human-like characteristics of her familiar.
4 Nick Scratch: Gryffindor
Wait a moment, you might be thinking: wasn't Nick a traitor who only befriended and supported Sabrina at the demand of Satan? Well, yes, that's true, as we discovered in Part 2 of the series.
But Nick Scratch, whose name always gave away his position (think "Old Scratch"), also not only bravely stood by Sabrina when it meant possible danger or ridicule for himself, but he also sacrificed himself for her in the end, proving that even though he'd bee working like a Slytherin for the most part, he was also brave and selfless in a way that Harvey's really never been for Sabrina. (To be fair, he did demonstrate those qualities for his brother.)
3 Theo Putnam: Gryffindor
Why are there so many Gryffindors in Greendale? We have a theory that many teens act like Gryffindors while their hormones and frontal lobes settle, but we also think that Theo Putnam, formerly known as Susie, is a Gryffindor at heart. Theo definitely exhibits the qualities of a Hufflepuff, living as a true friend to all the people he loves, but he also bravely faces his bullies head-on without even flinching.
Watching Theo try out for the basketball team despite the odds was amazing, even if he did receive some clandestine help from Sabrina. Theo is easily one of the bravest and most fiercely loyal characters on the show.
2 Madam Satan: Slytherin
Lilith, AKA Madam Satan, is someone we love to hate but want to love. A feminist character, she fights for the rights of her students even when it really doesn't matter to her, and she helps Sabrina even while she's thwarting the young witch in ways that confound us. She's a Slytherin to the core, ultimately acting in her own best interest and creating devious schemes to get what she wants.
We may even discover that Lilith was Severus Snape all along with all of the lines that she keeps crossing and the various people in her life, including her own beloved Dark Lord, that she plays. She's a double agent if there ever was one.
1 Sabrina Spellman: Ravenclaw
Sabrina Spellman is a complicated witch to sort. She exhibits the qualities from all Houses in the show: she bravely and fearlessly defends her town and loved ones like a Gryffindor, craftily attempts to walk both the worlds of the witch and the human a la Slytherin but is also a true and loyal friend who always supports those she loves like a Hufflepuff.
Ultimately it's Sabrina's brain that makes her a Ravenclaw. Not only does she continually come up with schemes that enable her to skirt around the witch laws and Satan's demands, but she also devises plans to help Theo at school, save Harvey's father from drinking himself into an early grave and puts an incredible amount of thought into everything she does.
