Lavender Brown in “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince”

Lavender Brown is a character in the Harry Potter series. Silly and sentimental, she is a pureblood witch who gets sorted into Gryffindor. Her favorite class is Divination. In her fifth year, she joined Dumbledore’s Army, initiated by fellow student Harry Potter. A year later, she started a relationship with Ron Weasley. However, she was rather clingy and annoying, which resulted in their breakup, and he eventually ended up with Hermione Granger instead. Lavender fought in the Battle of Hogwarts, but she died from the injuries of a werewolf attack. In the movies, she is mainly portrayed by Jessie Cave.

Neville Longbottom

Neville Longbottom is a character in the Harry Potter book series. He is a pureblood wizard who was raised by his grandmother, Augusta, after his parents were tortured by Death Eaters. Like Harry, he’s sorted into Gryffindor, but his bumbling and sheepish personality contrasts with the house’s mantra. This makes him another target of Draco’s bullying. Neville shows promise when he stands up to Harry, Ron, and Hermione, which earns Gryffindor enough points to win the House cup. Upon joining Dumbledore’s Army, his personality undergoes a major transformation. The encouragement from his peers makes Neville more confident in his magical abilities and thus a more competent wizard. Eventually he becomes its leader during the search for the Horcruxes, justifying his place in the Gryffindor house. Without him, Harry wouldn’t have been able to defeat Voldemort. He also owns a pet toad named Trevor. In the movies, Neville is played by Matthew Lewis.
