Horace Slughorn, Francis' owner

Francis was a pet fish given to Horace Slughorn by Lily Evans when she was still a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Lily Transfigured a lily petal into a fish that Horace named Francis. She set the petal to float inside a bowl filled with very little water in it. When Slughorn found his gift, the petal sank down in the bowl and turned into Francis, much to the Professor's delight. Slughorn kept Francis for many years, until the morning of 1 November, 1981, when he found Francis had disappeared. Francis disappeared because the spell cast by Lily ceased when Lily died. Horace realised why his fish was gone: Lily Evans was dead. We know spells cease to work when the original wizard or witch who cast the spell dies because Harry was freed from Dumbledore's body freezing charm the moment Snape's spell struck Dumbledore. It was not a coincidence that the fish was gone on the day Lily died.
