Helga Hufflepuff, one of the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Her House favoured loyalty, honesty, fair play, and hard work. Born in the 10th Century in the broad valleys of Wales, she was one of the most powerful witches of her time and a great friend of Rowena Ravenclaw. She brought people from different backgrounds together to help in the building of the school, and was known for her charming ways. Helga had a gift for food-related Charms, and her recipes are still used as the basis for many Hogwarts feasts.
