In a world where witches and wizards still read by candlelight, communicate by owl, and write on scrolls of parchment with quills and ink, four brilliant, tech savvy visionaries found Hogwarts School and change the game forever.
Godric Gryffindor: BJ Britt
Young entrepreneur at the forefront of the technological boom. Initially reaches out to the other three founders and paints a picture of a bright future where witches and wizards are connected and empowered, instead of scattered and hiding. Believes that youth hold the power to change the future, and investing in their education is of paramount importance to a thriving magical community.
Rowena Ravenclaw: Gugu Mbatha-Raw
Master of technology. Inventor of a magical-electrical circuit allowing electricity to function in magical environments, revolutionizing communication for wizards by making computers, the internet, and smart phones options. Supports positive muggle relations, although not full exposure to the muggle world at large. Believes that collaboration between magical and non-magical minds could truly change the world.
Helga Hufflepuff: Mindy Kaling
Social media mastermind. Founder of wizard twitterand owner of a foundation dedicated to helping disenfranchised muggleborn witches and wizards. Fights to promote positive self image for young witches, and is an advocate for disability rights and universal access to wizarding spaces. Responsible for lifting the ban on flying carpets to allow better access to flying for those who cannot balance on a broomstick. Promotes more positive, open communication with muggles.
Salazar Slytherin: Jesse Williams
Well-known wizard with the highest number of twitter followers to date. Promotes honoring the strength and resilience of a group of people who live in secrecy. Dedicated to protecting and uplifting young witches and wizards. Wary that too much muggle involvement in wizarding progress will weaken the bonds that wizards share and leave the community vulnerable to being taken advantage of by those hungry for power.
