yes i have done the hogwarts thing too. this is going to be really long for the same reason the zodiacs list was (i.e. loads and loads of characters), and fair warning, there are going to be a lot of hufflepuffs and gryffindors -- there's not a limit to how many can be in each house here due to the fact that most of these characters are of different ages
also note that "slytherin" does not mean "antagonist / bigoted" despite the amount of villains and otherwise bigoted characters categorized in slytherin. those aren't actually slytherin traits, it's just that fiction tends to put slytherin-y characters in the "villain" or "anti-hero" position
ones that i think demand special explanations are marked with an asterisk and the explanations for those characters' sortings will be at the bottom of the list
*Fiona: Fiona would be a Gryffinclaw hatstall, and it's likely that her choice would be because of a bias thanks to her father being in a certain house. Given that Lanvega apparently did not care about glory (since Marado was probably stigmatized after he stopped serving Ashnard) and there are certain things that indicate he's very skilled and independent-minded, Lanvega would most likely be a Ravenclaw, i.e. Fiona is also a Ravenclaw.
*Heather: This should be really obvious, but you can actually make a fair case for her being a Ravenclaw because of her independent nature (i.e. her own morals matter more than amount of money/power offered; only loyal to her mother instead of a group or country) and apparently extensive and varied knowledge/abilities despite living in poverty and not having had any schooling. Honestly, she could be a Slytherclaw. (She also seems to be different from Slytherins in canon because she's self-aware enough to know she's contradicting her own morals and shows regret for her actions in her death quote.)
*Makalov: This isn't a "spares go into Hufflepuff" sorting. Canon indicates that he doesn't really endorse his actions or negative traits, and he actually cares about others, wants peace, etc. -- he doesn't actually show any Slytherin traits, and only shows one or two Gryffindor traits (recklessness and occasional overconfidence).
*Calill: The reason Calill is Gryffindor and not Slytherin is that 1) she cares a lot about glory, and 2) left her disabled husband to care for their, what, 6-year-old kid? which is pretty reckless on her part, but is part of the whole "sacrificing security for bravery on a larger scale" type of thing that Gryffindors are supposed to have. (She apparently does not care about others except for the romance part, though. A complete lack of empathy for others + manipulation is actually why she'd be Slytherin.)
