Lily Marie Evans (b. January 30, 1960) is a Muggle-born witch, and the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Evans. She is a Gryffindor student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1971 to 1978, the younger sister of Petunia Dursley (nee Evans), and was, since she was nine, best friends with Severus Snape. Her father died of lung cancer when she was around fourteen. She has a cat named Ira and an owl named Niko.
Lily is very striking. She isn't particularly tall, but she is taller than her fellow roommates Carlotta Meloni, Shelley Mumps and Mary Macdonald. She has dark red hair and large green eyes, and is often described as pretty - nearly as beautiful as Carlotta.
Lily's closest friends are her ex-roommates: Mary Macdonald, Marlene Price, and Donna Shacklebolt. She spends the majority of her free time with them at school, but she seems to not vistit them during the summer. She would've most likely spent her summers with Severus Snape before her fifth year, considering they lived close together and were friends at the time.
Starting in the summer before her sixth year, Lily began to date Luke Harper. She never really habored any strong feelings for the boy, but they lasted over half a year until Lily broke it off. Her main relationship is her one with James Potter, whom she seemed to never had any romantic feelings for until the September 1. of her seventh year. It was then that she realised that she fancied him. But as of chapter 35, she has yet to tell him of her feelings. Mainly because he had been dating Carlotta Meloni since school start, and also because she thinks James is over her, after he lied and told her so last day of 6th year.
Lily is a very well-liked person, she is kind, funny and extremely clever. She has a strong loyalty and love for her friends; she is always there to lend them a hand and comfort them in their time of need. Whilst being extremely caring, she is also quite self-righteous and hypercritcal. James Potter, Carlotta Meloni and Donna Shacklebolt seem to be the only ones to notice this, or the only ones to point this out to her face.
After "The Life and Times"Edit
According to JK Rowling's canon storyline, Lily Evans and James Potter get together in their seventh year at Hogwarts, and presumably they marry not long after their graduation. Both Lily and James are killed by Voldemort on October 31, 1981, in their home at Godric's Hallow, leaving behind their 1 year old son, Harry James Potter.
