Re: Why was Peter Pettigrew in Gryffindor? v3

I say he was brave in a way.
Bravery doesn't necessarily mean good deeds. Bravery is essential in bad deeds as well as good ones. I think it takes a lot of bravery to cut off your own hand, to trick people like Dumbledore, Moody, his own friends, etc.
Its true that he did those things out of pure terror from Voldemort, but still he needed a great amount of bravery to accomplish them.

I still agree with Yoana, that not every person carries the exact qualities of their house.
This thread rather reminds me of another one, with the title: Did the sorting hat mis-sort key characters?.
I don't think that Peter -and others- were mis-sorted. Just that they had different and varied qualities. You can't find some one who is purely brave, or purely intelligent, etc.
So it comes down to the person's preferance and the quality that is more distinct and powerful. .
