The houses are one of the most important and unique parts of Mistfell Vale, and are based on your character's personality and outlook on the world! This is a page dedicated to everything about the houses.
Houses are not "good" or "bad"; the traits that each house embodies can belong to 'good' or 'bad' characters, and are merely ways that these characters interpret and interact with the world. A character doesn't have to embody all of their house's traits, either - and you can choose which house you'd like your character to be ranked as! If you can't decide, then leadership can decide for you. :)
Also keep in mind that a character doesn't have to fit all of a house's characteristics to fit into that house! Maybe a particularly prominent trait of theirs is in one house even though they have others of other houses - or maybe there are simply more traits that fit with one than another, even if others might be more prominent. A character might value a certain trait as well, and that can be enough to place them in a certain house, too.

Elkenfrey is known for communication, flexibility, and openness - they can often be ambivalent or eccentric. Elkenfreys are often "outcasts" in society, although they don't have to be! They are often those with niche interests or passions who follow the beat of their own drum in life, whatever that may be. This causes the typical Elkenfrey to be understanding and accepting of others' quirks and intricacies, and they are typically very non-judgmental.
On the other side of the coin, due to their ability to understand many different viewpoints, Elkenfreys can have a hard time cementing what they truly "believe", and tend to struggle with being ambivalent or even apathetic. If an Elkenfrey has a lot of different interests or passions, they can "flit" from project to project and may leave some behind, unfinished.
Common Virtues: Open-minded, flexible, understanding, wise, creative
Common Vices: Fickle, apathetic, ambivalent, eccentric
Some fictional examples of Elkenfreys might be Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter), Ben Wyatt (Parks and Recreation), Tyrion Lannister (Game of Thrones), and Gandalf (Lord of the Rings).
Some archetypal examples of Elkenfreys might be a quirky, intelligent professor, an off-beat yet inspired artist, or an empathetic and understanding mediator.
Hawkesond is known for passion, motivation, and independence - they can often be impulsive or intense. Hawkesonds usually have a lot of energy, and can be found in positions of influence or leadership; they often have a rather large social circle and don't tend to be afraid to approach others (although these aren't always true!). Hawkesonds also tend to be very in tune with their emotions, and defend their stances with vigor, even if they may seem inconsequential to others.
However, Hawkesonds with too much of this trait can be defensive or emotional - or perhaps even argumentative. Intensity is also a common sight in members of this house if their inner fire becomes too strong and turns into an inferno!
Common Virtues: Motivated, influential, passionate, warm, spirited
Common Vices: Impulsive, intense, contrarian, defiant
Some fictional examples of Hawkesonds might be Ron Weasley (Harry Potter), Leslie Knope (Parks and Recreation), Arya Stark (Game of Thrones), and Gimli (Lord of the Rings).
Some archetypal examples of Hawkesonds might be a spirited and passionate activist, a fiery, vigorous warrior, or a warm and energetic friend.
Wolverthorne is known for dependability, resilience, and thoroughness - they can often be stubborn or reserved. Wolverthornes tend to be very steady people who do well in many different roles in life, and often fit in well with their community. Their diligent and solid nature makes them good friends, students, and mentors, and they are often a "rock" to others. They also tend to be principled, whether by the law of the land, family or group mores, or their own personal moral code.
On the other hand, Wolverthornes can also be highly stubborn, and do not yield easily if they think that they're right. They can also have a tendency to pull away from others emotionally, whether due to a naturally reserved nature or a fundamental disagreement on one's values.
Common Virtues: Loyal, honest, dependable, resilient, thorough, honorable
Common Vices: Stubborn, cold, arrogant, prideful
Some fictional examples of Wolverthornes might be Minerva McGonagall (Harry Potter), Ron Swanson (Parks and Recreation), Jon Snow (Game of Thrones), and Samwise Gamgee (Lord of the Rings).
Some archetypal examples of Wolverthornes might be a stalwart, loyal soldier, a diligent, hard-working student, or a dedicated, loving mother.
