Warning: This article contains SPOILERS for Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Disney+ Obi Wan Kenobi did the titular character’s popularity justice, showing her life before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. The show proved to be a massive hit, becoming the most-watched Disney+ premiere to date. And a big reason for its success is the characters to follow in the story.
fans of the Harry Potter know that figuring out heroes and villains can be simple thanks to the Hogwarts school sorting system. The houses of Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw have qualities of bravery, ambition, loyalty and intelligence. Whether it’s a snarky personality like the Third Sister or a dedicated hero like Obi-Wan, every character on the show has embodied these characteristics.
Grand Inquisitor: Ravenclaw
The return of the Grand Inquisitor was one of the predictions of the Obi Wan Kenobi final, although he arrived earlier, showing his intelligence. While Slytherins are usually of the cunning variety, Ravenclaws are also known to play the long game in terms of tactics, with the Grand Inquisitor keeping the ruse of his death to trick Reva.
Evil Ravenclaws are particularly good at deception, like Gilderoy Lockhart and Quirinus Quirrell, with the Grand Inquisitor remaining in that line. He could stay one step ahead of others with his powers of perception, which Ravenclaws can relate to.
Haja Estree: Slytherin
Slytherins don’t like to put themselves in danger, and even the good ones are reluctant to do so. Haja joined the heroes to challenge Darth Vader’s forces, but was the most vocal about not wanting to be there. Still, he stayed in line with the good guys, making him similar to Slytherins like Horace Slughorn.
Just like the average person in the house, Haja was a cunning individual and he is one of the clever characters in Obi Wan Kenobi. He became a trickster who could trick people into trusting him with clever tricks. Slytherins usually need a stern wake-up call to take what’s right, and being scolded by Obi-Wan set Haja back on track.
Kawlan Roken: Gryffindor
As the leader of the Path rebel network, Roken assumed a leadership role, which Gryffindors typically inhabit. The people of this house are extremely loyal to their clan and will go to great lengths for them. Roken did much the same when he didn’t want to help Obi-Wan keep his people safe.
The Gryffindors can’t resist the temptation to be heroic, however, with Roken agreeing to side with Obi-Wan when he couldn’t give up on him. Roken embodied Gryffindor’s chivalrous nature by ensuring the rebels escaped before him, also showcasing the Gryffindor trait of being bold.
Fifth brother: Slytherin
The Fifth Brother was a mysterious figure who was content to continue the evil practices of the Empire. Her main goal was to become the Grand Inquisitor after the original, turning against her own allies like the Third Sister to align herself with the Empire’s ideals.
Slytherins who revel in being evil can’t deal with anything other than what they think is right. The Fifth Brother had no empathy for the others as he didn’t think they were worth much if the Empire deemed them worthless. His self-centeredness is reminiscent of Slytherins who value themselves above all else.
Leia Organa: Gryffindor
Leia was shown to be headstrong, fierce, and daring for her age, showing no fear of villains. Gryffindors exhibit these traits as a natural quality, which makes Leia an easy sorting person in the house. Although she was also exceptionally bright, her brave attitude was Leia’s main attribute.
Leia could be quite reckless in revealing who she was to people who can’t be trusted – Gryffindors are notorious for thinking themselves right all the time. Leia’s bravery was evident as she defied the Third Sister’s interrogation despite knowing the danger she was in.
Darth Vader: Slytherin
There’s no doubt a lot of sad things happened to Darth Vader in star warswith Obi Wan Kenobi showing his anger at the titular character’s abandonment of him. Slytherins hold a grudge throughout their lives and especially despise people who they believe have hurt them.
Slytherins also value winning above all else, with Obi Wan Kenobi showing a flashback where the protagonist told Anakin that this attribute would be his downfall. Darth Vader’s exceptional power and natural talent are qualities that Slytherins typically possess, as what holds these people back is usually their own vanity.
Tala Durith: Gryffindor
Tala went down blasting Reva’s forces to make sure her friends escape. This sacrificial attitude is what Gryffindors respect the most, with the people of this house being ready to give their lives in the blink of an eye. Tala was unafraid of death and had previously infiltrated the villains’ lair on her own.
Gryffindors consider daring and chivalry the most admirable quality in a person, and Tala’s sacrifice was an expected act of similar personalities. Tala’s valiant efforts paid off in ensuring that Obi-Wan escaped with the rebels, which should bring peace to Tala since dying for them was his choice.
Reva Sevander: Slytherin
While Reva was by no means the most powerful star wars villainous, she carried the same ambition as the biggest and baddest in the galaxy. Slytherins are the most ambitious personalities who will abandon ethical boundaries to get what they want. Reva may not have really aligned with Darth Vader, but she had a similar attitude.
She was ready to take down Obi-Wan and the Rebels simply because they interfered with her plans for revenge against Darth Vader. Reva’s obsession with revenge was more important to her than the lives of others, which is a quality that evil Slytherins carry in abundance.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Hufflepuff
Most consider Obi-Wan to be brave and powerful, but the trait he’s shown the most in the Disney+ series is loyalty. Obi-Wan watched Luke for a decade through the events of the show and became fiercely devoted to Leia, eventually extending it to the rebel forces.
Obi-Wan’s loyalty to Anakin’s memory kept him from fighting Darth Vader, with the former still haunted by the bond he had with his former padawan. Hufflepuffs are known to be intensely loyal, to the point that they consider just about everyone their friend. The people of this house are hurt by the betrayal and separation, with Obi-Wan’s sadness pointing in the same direction.
