Helpful hints from a full blood witch, Professor Elstun Ravenclaw also known as Denver Colorado Magic Magician Connie Elstun who has a fantastic Harry Potter themed magic show.
As a proud Ravenclaw alumni I feel guilty that I am just a bit jealous of
anyone who can speak Parseltongue. Being considered a Parselmouth is a
privilege claimed by a few. It is a very uncommon skill, and is typically due
to hereditary. Nearly all known Parselmouths are descended from Salazar
Slytherin with Harry Potter being a notable exception. In order for me to claim
such a skill, people would have to call me Elstun Slytherin, a descendant of
Merlin. Merlin was Slytherin's most famous alumni.
