One of the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the founder of Hufflepuff House. She was a kind and warm woman. Hufflepuff favoured loyalty, honesty, fair play, and hard work. While the other founders took students based on either ambition, bravery, or intelligence, Helga Hufflepuff took the rest, treating them all equally and teaching them all she knew. Hufflepuff was renowned for her compassionate nature; she took in the house-elves to work in Hogwarts Kitchen where they could work in peace and safety. Helga Hufflepuff had a gift for food-related Charms.
