I’ve been thinking about Slytherin a little bit lately. I’ve been listening to Half-Blood Prince (book on tape) and Dumbledore mentions that there is a fund for disadvantaged wizards. It makes me wonder how many outcasts like young Tom Riddle came to Hogwarts, children with no family and no inheritance. Surely these children, and many other children from poor and/or abusive backgrounds, must have been determined to make the most of their newfound talent. I imagine a LOT of Slytherins must be from unfortunate backgrounds. Hardscrabble social climbers would be right up Slytherin’s alley. Which leads me to also wonder how Pureblood Slytherins take care of these students. Surely, with the extreme loyalty found among their rank, Slytherins must be extremely protective of all their students, poverty-stricken ones included. I can’t imagine that Slytherins would allow a fellow Slytherin to walk the halls in shabby robes or carrying obviously worn books. We see that Lucius takes Snape under his wing when he comes to school. I guess what I’m really getting at is that I think Slytherin house would have worked really hard to assimilate the less-fortunate students in order to make them feel more at home. They may have had second-hand books but I’ll bet anything other Slytherins would make sure they still had the nicest of the hand-me-downs, perhaps even keeping their own stock of better-looking supplies.
