Biographical InformationEdit

Born on 30 January 1960, Lily would have begun attending Hogwarts in 1971, the year she turned 11. She met James Potter sometime during their time in school together, possibly on their first trip on the Hogwarts Express, as remembered by Severus Snape in the canon universe. Lily was probably sorted into Gryffindor, like James, although she was friends with Severus Snape when she first began attending school; Snape was sorted into Slytherin. Over the years Lily would become estranged from Snape due to the pressures of members of those Houses disliking each other.

Lily would have left Hogwarts around June of 1978. Around this time Lily's sister Petunia would have been attending college; Petunia, unhappy with how she perceived her life would be, begged Lily to use magic to make her more beautiful. Lily resisted doing this, telling her sister that it was dangerous and she had been warned not to do it (by a centaur!) but Petunia's demands became more drastic, and Lily capitulated and gave her a potion which made her sick for several weeks, after which she became more shapely and physically attractive.

Lily married James Potter after leaving Hogwarts, and on 31 July 1980 Harry was born to the couple. Shortly after this, the couple and their infant son rose to the top of Voldemort's list of enemies and they were targeted for death. They were advised to hide themselves with the Fidelius Charm, with James' friend Sirius Black as the Secret Keeper, but Sirius advised James to allow him to be a decoy only, and make their mutual friend Peter Pettigrew the real Secret Keeper, whom Voldemort would not suspect.

However, the plan backfired. Peter betrayed James and Lily to Voldemort, though no one was aware of this except Sirius, who was blamed for the betrayal. Black was apprehended and placed in Azkaban Prison without trial, putatively for the murder of Peter Pettigrew.
