Hufflepuff House 

Hufflepuff House was founded by and named after Helga Hufflepuff.
She was one of the four greatest wizards of her time.  She came up from
the valley to build Hogwarts Castle and to start a school for young witches and
wizards to learn how to use their powers so they wouldn't alarm the muggles.

You belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid to toil.
