From The Professor to Helsinki we place the main characters of Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) into their appropriate Hogwarts Houses.
So, we’ve finally got a glimpse of the radical far-left Dali robbers of Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) once again in their natural environment: banks. Say what you will about their impulsive tendencies, but their heist shenanigans are truly spectacular and unmatched in the fictional heist history of film and television.
Somehow, they do make it work despite their clashing personalities and lots of gun pointing (at one another) with or without the intent to actually shoot. Speaking of their personalities, they are as varied and diverse as ever now. Hence, we can’t help but classify them based on their Hogwarts House traits, just to show how compatible or incompatible they are with each other. Maybe they should have considered this before all their heists.
THE PROFESSOR – RAVENCLAW
Here we have the glue that holds all their heists together, The Professor a.k.a. Sergio Marquina. He’s the one who started it all, the leader of the Dalis and the mastermind of the heists. It takes an astounding amount of brain electricity for such plans and grand schemes and thankfully, The Professor has it in spades.
Even so, he’s more calculated than ambitious, more logical than cunning. This puts the Professor in House Ravenclaw where all the geniuses play chess with one another and flex their I.Q. test scores unwittingly. Just like how the Professor does it.
TOKYO – GRYFFINDOR
If there ever was a Grammy award for television’s most unpredictable firebrand, it would go to Tokyo or Silene Oliveira. She’s a wildcard as far as hot-headed characters go and the kind of person who will likely burn out than fade away.
For that matter, Tokyo belongs in Gryffindor and the Sorting Hat wouldn’t even second-guess. She’s definitely brave and takes the leap before looking at how deep the fall is. This has caused much trouble for the whole team, but at least Tokyo is a bit more responsible now.
LISBON – RAVENCLAW
The Professor and Lisbon, formerly Raquel Murillo, would have been a match made in heaven under different circumstances. Even so, they did manage to start something productive and fruitful. Both of them are established geniuses in their field with Murillo formerly being on the other side of the law.
This does put Lisbon in the same house as The Professor even if he defeated her at her own game. The two of them have combined their brainpower in order to run the second heist from the shadows and Lisbon has lent much to the plan.
BERLIN – SLYTHERIN
It seems like Berlin, a.k.a. Andrés de Fonollosa has become a fan favorite despite his lack of morals and overt narcissism. He does have a flair for presentation and theatrics, plus his charisma is through the roof. In fact, it was revealed that the heists were his idea and The Professor only perfected it.
There’s no doubting Berlin’s cunning and ambition. That’s why he’s an easy Slytherin. He’s a natural leader and also has the mental fortitude to back it up. It’s likely that he could have planned and committed the heists himself even without The Professor’s help, albeit with more deaths.
RIO – HUFFLEPUFF
Rio a.k.a. Anníbal Cortés is the reason why we have a Money Heist Season 3 and 4. His capture at the hands of the Spanish law enforcement has served as the catalyst for a grander heist. As much of a whiz kid he is when it comes to computers, Rio is not exactly bright anywhere else.
He is, however, loyal to a fault and even refused to compromise The Professor’s plans or jeopardize his teammates even under torture. He could have easily chosen to side with the law and undergo witness protection but he chose otherwise. For his loyalty and humility, Rio is a Hufflepuff.
PALERMO – SLYTHERIN
The closest living replacement we got for Berlin was Palermo, a.k.a. Martin Berotte. He was Berlin’s long-time friend and unrequited lover, sticking with him like a brother because they’re practically birds of the same feather.
Palermo is equally narcissistic and grandiose as Berlin, though he’s a lot more selfish and unpredictable. This also places him on Slytherin where the two of them can hatch their grand schemes not just to get rich but also to make waves.
DENVER – GRYFFINDOR
Daniel Ramos or better-known as Denver is one of the most memorable characters in the show due to his hotheadedness that is second only to Tokyo’s. Before he joined the heist, his most notable achievement is starting bar brawls.
It’s not hard to see where he belongs, in Gryffindor. Denver has the audacity and the fieriness to back that up. He’s certainly courageous too though a bit shortsighted and lacks the decorum of more classy characters such as Berlin or the Professor.
STOCKHOLM – HUFFLEPUFF
One of the newest impromptu members of the Dali Anti-Bank Social Club is Stockholm, whom we also know as Monica Gastambide. She certainly stands out among the group as someone who does not have prior criminal activities or records. This makes her a more sympathetic and caring character.
Right off the bat, she set where her loyalties lie and stuck with it till the end. Moreover, her genuine kindness, and empathy for her teammates, makes her a valuable addition to Hufflepuff as well as the Dalis.
NAIROBI – GRYFFINDOR
Being the most active beacon of feminism and girl power among her teammates, Nairobi’s (Ágata Jiménez) fearlessness and bravery are undeniable. This also puts her in Gryffindor, especially with that inspiring speech she did in the furnace about courage.
Nairobi was also daring enough to stand up to controlling and insane figures such as Berlin back in the first season of the show. Even as a heavily wounded and injured member of the team, she still manages to muster up a fight in her.
HELSINKI – HUFFLEPUFF
Last but not least, we have one of the unexpectedly cutest members of the group, Helsinki a.ka. Mirko Dragić. He’s also a radiant member of the LGBTQ+ community and is a lot more tender than what his outer appearance suggests.
As seen in his bonding flashbacks with Nairobi, Helsinki is an insightful and compassionate soul confined within a rough shell of the biological male. His loyalty to the group and to his sis, Nairobi is unflinching, however, making him a pure Hufflepuff.
