HP Watch: J.K. Rowling reveals official picture of Godric Gryffindor

Goddric Gryffindor Based upon the image from JKR's website (shown here), he has mane-like red hair and green eyes. He was the most accomplished dueller of his time, an enlightened fighter against Muggle-discrimination and the first owner of the celebrated Sorting Hat.

But it's the "mane-like red hair" and the "green eyes" that catches our attention. Who else is described that way? Lily Potter, Harry's mother, that's who. Lily, who's parents and sister were all "muggles." Interesting.

Yes! That does rather cause one to speculate about the very interesting possibilities.

Godric defended the right of Muggles. That would be 1,000 years before the events in Harry Potter took place. Even though Lily was born to Muggles, that is not to say that either one of her parents didn't have Godric in their ancestry. It's obvious Jo Rowling has waited until the last minute to show us some new interesting characteristics by one of the founders of Hogwarts. Guess we'll find out why very soon!
