 Neville Longbottom

"I believe Neville visits [his parents], with his grandmother, during the holidays. They do not recognize him..."

     -- Neville Longbottom

born: July 30, 1980 (JKR)
Neville is the son of Frank and Alice Longbottom, famous and well-liked Aurors, born in 1980. He attends Hogwarts. For some years, it was wondered if he might be a squib, but fortunately this wasn't the case. Neville is rather forgetful and often has trouble performing magic. He is, however, particularly adept at herbology. Neville has a round face and seems to be slightly overweight. Neville does not fit the typical Gryffindor image of being brave and courageous. However, Neville has his own kind of bravery, once standing up to other Gryffindors when he knew he was right, another time attacking Crabbe and Goyle even though he knew he would be beaten up. His fellow Gryffindors treat him with respect and defend him at times; Hermione Granger in particular helps him out when necessary. Snape picks on Neville mercilessly and it is a mark of his inner courage that he doggedly keeps attending those classes in spite of the abuse. His pet is a toad named Trevor who tends to get lost a lot. Neville snores (GF14). Neville joins Dumbledore's Army during the 1995-96 school year. He learns a lot of Defense Against the Dark Arts spells and takes part in the running battle in the Department of Mysteries in June of 1996 against a band of Death Eaters. Neville was wounded in that battle, but fought bravely nevertheless (OP)

Editor's note: I think it is very possible that Neville's forgetfulness is the result of Memory Charms placed upon him as a small boy to make him forget witnessing his parents' torture. Memory charms do affect a person's mental ability, as we see with Bertha Jorkins.
