J.K. Rowling writes that Ilvermorny was a magical school of witchcraft and wizardry, founded by a pureblood Irish wizard named Isolt Sayre in the 17th century. Ilvermorny sat atop the highest peak of Mount Greylock enshrouded by powerful concealment enchantments.

Sayre was a descendant of Salazar Slytherin and the renowned Irish witch Morrigan. Sayre lived with her parents in a small Irish town till the day her mother's estranged sister Gormlaith Gaunt (pureblood zealot) murdered Sayre's parents and kidnapped her away to Hag's Glen to stop her from marrying a muggle.

A decade later, following imprisonment and continued attempts at indoctrinating Sayre, she stole her aunt's wand, and managed an escape. 

Sayre went on to pose as a Muggle boy, sailing to the 'New World', where she came across a wealth of magical creatures and fellow wizards that'd ultimately help her create Ilvermorny.

The four Ilvermorny houses are named after magical creatures:

  • Horned Serpent – a ‘great horned river serpent with a jewel set into its forehead’
  • Pukwudgie – ‘a short, grey-faced, large-eared creature’
  • Thunderbird – a creature that ‘can create storms as it flies’
  • Wampus – ‘a magical, panther-like creature that is fast, strong and almost impossible to kill’

Halo Forge mastermind xXHugabearXx forged a custom Grifball level and game mode to mirror the infamous Harry Potter game Quidditch. Though, in this case players use jetpacks instead of broomsticks, but the rules of the Halo 5 Quidditch game are very similar to the original.


-Players are allotted three points for throwing the ball through one of the rival team's hoops, and one point for killing a player on the opposing team with a gravity hammer.


-The first team to hit 15 points is victorious.


Unfortunately, there's no version of the Golden Snitch in this game; and there's no assigned positions, but a team could definitely assign positions on their own. Players eager to try out this game mode in Halo 5: Guardians simply need search for the new level "Quidditch Arena' and the game mode "Quidditch."
