Lily Potter

Lily Potter was a talented Muggle-born witch, and the first in her family to go to Hogwarts - something that inspired great jealousy in her sister, Petunia. Sorted into Gryffindor along with James, after leaving school they married and had a son, Harry, who had his mother's eyes. Lily and her husband were staunch adversaries of Voldemort and did everything they could to fight his rise to power before they were murdered. However, Lily's love for her son offered a special protection against Voldemort's Killing Curse, leaving baby Harry unscathed but for a distinctive lightning bolt shaped scar.
