Hogwarts Regional
Round One

#8 Flotsam and Jetsam


#9 Argo

Tale of the Tape


Flotsam and Jetsam - spies, minions

Argo - can sense danger, issues commands to other horses

Advantage: Even


Flotsam and Jetsam - moray eels

Argo - palomino horse

Advantage: Argo


Flotsam and Jetsam - Ursula

Argo - Xena

Advantage: even

Bottom Line:

A real toss-up. Flotsam and Jetsam are two of the meanest familiars around, but Argo could prove to be a dark horse in the tourney. Your vote will decide!

Tomorrow: We unveil the Elite 8 and kick-off with our first second round match-up.


  1. I loved the eels when I was a kid. Have to go with them.

  2. I do love the creepiness of eels. But I love the beauty of horses more. Palominos especially. Gotta go with Argo.
