- "Family above all."
- —Howell family quote.
Like the Hudsons and the Dunbars, the Howell family are very friendly and loyal. The family has been around for centuries. The Howells grew up in the the southern of England, in the well-known family house named, The Crate. It is known that the family existed usually from a whole group of children. When Howell had a group of 9 children, was no one weird looking.
The Howells, were like the Hudsons, not the most rich family in England. The Howells always learned to in order to get more out of life than money. Money wasn't that special for them, no, the family and the people around them were special. Still, the Howells had to keep their name big, because they were pure-bloods.
It is known that many Howells were succesfully graduated from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Hufflepuff was lucky enough to have the most Howells in it. Like Carole and Hugo, who were put into this house. But when Lise Howell were sorted into Ravenclaw with her children Gabe and Carl Howell, this house can pass the baton.
Everything changed when Carole met a muggle, Christopher Hudson and fell in love. At first, Carole couldn't be with the muggle, because they had to bring their name big, the Howells had to be pure-bloods forever. But when Carole showed her love for Christopher, the Howells supported her when she was married him. For the first time, it didn't matter for them to have a name. What matters in life is love, whatever your blood-line is. Christopher is friendly welcomed into the family, knowing about the magic. When Christopher died in 1980, the Howells supported Carole.
For centuries now, the Howells, like the Hudson family has close ties to the Dunbar family. Their relationship evolved so much over the years that now they consider each other extended family. The Dunbars are one of the few families who have been inside their house. This can be because Carole shared a very close friendship with Alice Dunbar.
