It was one reason, yes. I also think that her death was so violent and she died in so much emotional pain that she simply couldn’t move on, but we don’t know enough about HP ghosts to say for sure.

me: I’m a proud ravenclaw!
literally anyone: first of all, hogwarts isn’t real
me: I’m a ravenclaw!
anyone: so you’re basically saying you’re just a burnt out gifted child
me: I’m a ravenclaw😡
anyone: people who strongly identify with ravenclaw house act as if they are geniuses, especially those who are actually too old to even attend hogwarts, so by saying you’re a ravenclaw you’re actually implying you’re-
me: look at my ravenclaw socks! I’m a ravenclaw!
Most people think that if you’re a Ravenclaw your super smart, especially book smart. That doesn’t have to be the case, they’re about intelligence and wisdom. That doesn’t always mean being able to recite the periodic table of elements or getting A* grades all the time. You can be smart in different ways. For example you can be street smart or musically intelligent where you have a certain gift or talent in being able to discern sounds like pitch and tone etc. It’s also about learning and wit so you might be a keen learner or really witty. Take Lockhart for example, he was a ravenclaw who used ways to trick everyone into believing he was a great fighter or something. He certainly was a witty character, and a very charismatic one too. Interpersonal intelligence also would probably count where you are good at sensing others emotions, feelings and motives. I feel like a lot of people have misconceptions about the houses and this just my thoughts on Ravenclaw💙
The Grey Lady from the early HP movies is so pretty!! Look at her!!
She is styled for entirely the wrong time period to match the backstory she was revealed to have so it’s obvious why they redesigned her for the later films where she had an actual role…
But I just want to take a moment to appreciate the design she was given before canon contradicted it.
Helena Ravenclaw/ The Gray Lady
Hogwarts houses moodboard :
Scotland, Hogwart School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Ravenclaw Tower - located to the west of the castle
“Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.”
“The baron was always a hot-tempered man.”
tom burke / the bloody baron
sofia del tuffo / the grey lady
No worries! It’s because this Helena is fifteen and still relatively optimistic, rather than a ghost who lost everything she ever loved because of what she felt is her own foolishness. Helena in SV is cold and standoffish initially, but she’s not nearly as bad as she will be in the future.
“Strange. You remind me of him a bit.”

Helena Ravenclaw aka The Grey Lady was 100000% gay you cannot change my mind

She kind of always knew. She grew up with Rowena and the others talking about how Hogwarts told them this needed fixing, or how they wanted to improve something else to make Hogwarts happy, and so she was more surprised that new students just assumed that Hogwarts was just a normal castle.

→ the bloody baron
The baron was always a hot-tempered man. Furious at my refusal, jealous of my freedom, he stabbed me… When he saw what he had done, he was overcome with remorse. He took the weapon that had claimed my life, and used it to kill himself. All these centuries later, he wears his chains as an act of penitence… as he should.
