While Hogwarts has a sorting hat, Salem Witches’ Institute has a colonial candle holder known as The Sorting Candle. It once belonged to Sarah Good, one of the founders of the magic academy. The candle can detect the inner most desires and thoughts of the person who holds it – the rumor is that the candle sees such desires through a student’s eyes when they stare deeply into the flame. In order to be sorted, the student must hold the candle holder in their hand and light the candle in the other with a match. The flame will be like normal fire until flaring into the color of the person’s house. The sorting master is Mr. Endymion.
