What’s Your ‘Harry Potter’ Patronus?


This year is the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book. Since then, the series has become one of the most influential sagas in history. Celebrate The Boy Who Lived with a cool Patronus quiz.

Like any Harry Potter fan, you’ve probably wondered which Hogwarts house you’d belong to, but have you ever been curious about your Patronus? As a reminder, in the Harry Potter universe a Patronus is a guardian which  takes the shape of the animal with whom they share the deepest affinity. Now you can find yours in just a few minutes at the Pottermore website.

Adventure through the Forbidden Forest — in quiz form, of course. As you approach the lake where Harry unleashes his Patronus to ward off the Dementors, you must be quick to respond to a blitz of timed questions. It’s best to go with the first answer that comes to mind.

When you’re done, you’ll find yourself at the revered lake from The Prisoner of Azkaban. Drag around your wand until your Patronus is released — there are several possibilities. Yours could be anything from a mole or squirrel to a pine marten. Harry’s stag, Hermione’s otter and Ron’s Jack Russell Terrier are also possible results.

You have J.K. Rowling to thank for the quiz and Pottermore for making it an interactive reality. Pottermore members can go forth and Patronus. Not a member? No worries, it’s free to sign up. Just be sure to check with your parents to make sure it’s OK.
