J.K. Rowling is at it again! The Harry Potter author took to Twitter on Wednesday (Dec. 14) to field a few fan questions and ended up revealing some interesting information with regards to some of our favorite characters from Fantastic Beasts.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them may have been jam-packed with action, but one place we didn’t get to see was the magical American wizarding school Ilvermorny.

Even so, we did get a brief mention of the magical school toward the end of the film and now, Rowling has even revealed which houses Tina, Queenie and MACUSA president Seraphina Picquery were in while they were in school.

It turns out, Tina was a Thunderbird, Queenie was a Puckwudgie, and Madam Picquery was a Horned Serpent!

After Rowling revealed the houses of the three magical wizards, she even humored another question from a fan who wanted to know which house Jacob would have been in if he had been born with magic and allowed to attend Ilvermorny.

“Wampus, of course.” wrote Rowling in reply.

From what we know of the Ilvermorny house traits thanks to Pottermore’s descriptions, Rowling’s sortings of the characters make total sense! And even though we might have been able to guess their sorting on our own, it’s nice to have J.K. Rowling’s official confirmation on the matter!
