She created them herselves, but she did say they weren't all evil. I think.
Like Horace Slughorn. He might be a bit obsequious, but he wasn't truly bad.
I'm a Slytherin myself

Each house had at least one "bad" seed (excluding Hufflepuff: they seriously produced no dark wizards). Ravenclaw had Prof. Quirrell (who was pretty bad), Gryffindor had Peter Pettigrew (surprising, considering he was a real coward), and Slytherin had Tom Riddle. I guess it just depends on what sort of person you are, not really your house (but yes, Slytherin does have a reputation of housing all the baddies).

What annoyed me was the lack of thought she put into Slytherin House. Neville she put into Gryffindor, and by the end he proved his bravery. Crabbe and Goyle? They never proved their cunning or ambition, thanks much. There are other examples, anyway, she kind of ignored their way.

Maybe Crabbe and Goyle wanted to be in Slytherin. They're too stupid and cowardly for any house so maybe they requested and the sorting hat was just like "oh screw it, fine" and let them in.

Zacharius Smith is seriously annoying, though.
And I thought Quirrell got possessed.

Well, he was probably a coward...and then y'know, The Dark Lord comes along, "hey, can I posess you?" "well..." "I promise I won't ruin your life or turn you evil!" "oh, sure."

For Ravenclaw, there was also Lockhart.
