Lily Potter (née Evans) (30 January, 1960 - 31 October, 1981) was a muggle-born witch and the sister of Petunia Dursley. Professor Horace Slughorn remarked that she was outstanding at Potions.
Lily was born to two Muggles, and was the younger sister of Petunia Evans The two often spent time together, doing such things as riding the swings, although Petunia was often annoyed by Lily's blatant use of magic. One such instance was in the summer of 1971, when she and her sister first met Severus Snape. Although her sister was reluctant to accept Snape, she soon became his friend after he explained that she was a witch, and he in turn explained the basic facts of the wizarding world.
In June of her fifth year, Lily wrote her OWLs and, after, sat at the edge of the lake with her friends, dangling her bare feet in the water so as to cool off. When she witnessed James Potter and Sirius Black bullying Severus Snape, she yelled at them to stop, but left after Snape called her a "mudblood", a foul term referring to a muggle-born witch or wizard, therefore breaking their four-year-long friendship, which was never repaired.
Lily was described as a very pretty woman with long, thick, dark red hair and brilliant, almond-shaped green eyes.
