Luna was the only child of [[Xenophilius Lovegood|Xenophilius]] and [[Luna Lovegood's mother|Mrs. Lovegood]]. Luna's mother was accidentally killed experimenting with a spell that she created when Luna was nine years old. Thus, Luna was subsequently raised by her father.

In Luna's fourth year, she met and befriended [[Harry Potter]], [[Ronald Weasley]], [[Hermione Granger]] and [[Neville Longbottom]]. She believed Harry's declaration that [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] was back. As the year progressed, she was invited to join an underground [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] group called [[Dumbledore's Army]]. She eagerly accepted, working hard along with the others and enjoying the company. In an effort to make people believe Harry's story, Hermione arranged an interview for him with [[Rita Skeeter]] at the [[Three Broomsticks]] - Luna accompanied them so as to persuade her father to publish the interview in ''[[The Quibbler]]''.

They were restrained and gagged, but Luna hardly seemed bothered by this as she was staring, dreamily, through the window as if bored.

When they all met up again in the forest, Harry planned to go to the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]]. Luna reminded Harry about the [[Thestral]]s and suggested using them to get to the Ministry. She then mounted her Thestral side-saddle, "as though she did this every day." She also helped Ron, Hermione and Ginny mount their Thestrals, as the animals were invisible to them. The six [[Dumbledore's Army|D.A.]] members flew to the Ministry and entered the [[Department of Mysteries]], where Luna heard voices coming from behind a [[Veil]], just as Harry did. The group was soon ambushed by twelve [[Death Eaters]].

Luna participated in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries|battle]] that ensued. She protected Ron, who had been hit with a [[Confundus Charm|spell]] that made him highly confused. Luna also attacked a Death Eater who had seized Ginny's ankle with the [[Reductor Curse]], which destroyed a model of the planet Pluto. The model blew up in the Death Eater's face; however, the impact broke Ginny's ankle. Luna guided both the injured Ginny and the [[Confundus Charm|Confunded]] Ron until they met up with Harry and Neville. Luna was one of the last D.A. members to fall, eventually being [[Stunning Spell|stunned]] by a Death Eater and thrown across the room. She regained focus just before the end of the battle and survived relatively unscathed.

At the end of the school year, Luna spoke to Harry, who was mourning the murder of his godfather and had found no comfort in talking to [[ghost]]s. Luna told him about [[Pandora Lovegood|her mother]]'s death and her belief that she would see her again someday, which was a comforting thought to Harry.

Luna was holding another edition of the Quibbler, which she told Harry was going strong because of his interview. She then put on a brightly coloured pair of free "Spectrespecs" that were from inside the Quibbler. She was very disappointed to find out that the D.A. would not continue that year.

When [[Romilda Vane]] asked Harry if he wanted to join her and her friends in another compartment, while treating Luna and Neville with disdain, Harry coldly rebuffed her, stating that they were his friends. Luna correctly observed that people expected Harry to associate with "cooler" people; he replied that she and Neville were cool, and among his closest and most trustworthy friends.

Luna had found Hermione crying and Harry had been looking for Hermione to return the books she left in Transfiguration class.

While there, she conversed with multiple people, and took an interest in [[Sanguini]], a [[vampire]] guest. She also made Harry laugh so hard that [[mead]] came out of his nose when she discussed the [[Rotfang Conspiracy]] after [[Severus Snape|Professor Snape]] sneered at Harry's ambition to become an [[Auror]].

Many found Luna's commentary terrible and annoying, as Luna forgot players' names and went off on tangents such as speculating that Smith was suffering from "[[Loser's Lurgy]]," or saying how a cloud was interestingly shaped. She never actually reported the score, and [[Professor McGonagall]] had to report it. However, after Ron heard this commentary, which he found highly amusing, he said "You know, [Luna]'s grown on me," when previously he found her very strange.

On [[1 August]], [[1997]], Luna and [[Xenophilius Lovegood|her father]] attended the [[Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour|wedding]] of [[William Weasley|Bill Weasley]] and [[Fleur Delacour]] at [[the Burrow]]. Luna was able to recognise [[Harry Potter|Harry]], who was disguised as a [[Weasley family|Weasley]] cousin by use of [[Polyjuice Potion]], by only his expression. She wore yellow dress robes and had a sunflower in her hair, and sat at the same table as Harry, [[Hermione Granger|Hermione]], and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]]. At one point, Luna danced happily by herself, twirling on the dance floor with her arms raised, which drew attention from a few onlookers.

[[File:Patronus2.gif|frame|Luna's corporal [[Patronus]] (form of a hare), age fourteen ]]
Even though Luna was quite young, she had plenty of formidable magical skills.
+
*'''[[Duel]]ling''': At fourteen Luna survived the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]] with no more than a few minor injuries. She also survived the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]] with no major injuries. During the [[Battle of Hogwarts]] she managed to duel against [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]]'s most powerful servant, [[Bellatrix Lestrange]], whom she fought alongside [[Hermione Granger]] and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]].
+
Even from a young age, Luna proved herself to be a skilful and talented witch, very much like her friend, Ginny Weasley. She was able to conjure a corporeal [[Patronus]] at the age of fourteen, which was a very advanced piece of magic, and proof that she possessed superior magical ability.<ref name="PM">''[[Pottermore]]'' - [http://www.pottermore.com/en/book3/chapter21/moment3/patronus-charm New From J. K. Rowling - Patronus Charm]</ref>
*'''Creativity''': Luna invented a [[Lion head hat|lion-shaped hat]] that, with a tap of a wand, made a realistic roar. She also made a [[Luna Lovegood's eagle hat|hat with a flapping eagle]].
+
*'''[[Patronus Charm]]''': In her fourth year, Luna learned how to conjure a corporeal Patronus. It took the form of a hare.
+
*'''[[Duel]]ling''': Despite her young age, Luna was a competent duellist. At the age of fourteen, she participated in and survived the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]] with no more than a few minor injuries. She emerged from the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]] with no major injuries. During the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], she duelled against [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]]'s most powerful servant, [[Bellatrix Lestrange]], whom she fought alongside [[Hermione Granger|Hermione and]] [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]].
*'''[[Nonverbal spell|Non-verbal magic]]''': Shortly before the [[Battle of Hogwarts]] in 1998, Luna accompanied Harry Potter to Ravenclaw Tower, where she wordlessly stunned [[Death Eaters|Death Eater]] [[Alecto Carrow]], although she admitted that that was the first time she had ever used that spell outside of practice.
+
*'''[[Charms]]''': In her fourth year, Luna learned how to conjure a corporeal [[Patronus]], which was a very advanced piece of magic. It took the form of a hare.

  +
*'''[[Care of Magical Creatures]]''': After her graduation from Hogwarts, Luna became a Magizoologist, a wizarding naturalist. To become a Magizoologist, one must achieve an O.W.L. and a N.E.W.T. in Care of Magical Creatures, so it can be reasonably theorised that she excelled in the subject.
  +
*'''Creativity''': Luna invented a [[Luna Lovegood's lion hat|lion-shaped hat]] that, with a tap of a wand, made a realistic roar. She also made a [[Luna Lovegood's eagle hat|hat with a flapping eagle]].
  +
*'''Leadership skills:''' At the age of sixteen, Luna co-led Dumbledore's Army along with her friends, Ginny and Neville. Their leadership was so efficient that she was abducted in an attempt to force the resistance to surrender, though she was ultimately rescued by Harry and Ron.
  +
*'''[[Legilimency]] (possibly)''': At the [[wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour]], she recognized [[Harry Potter]] although he had transformed himself using [[Polyjuice Potion]], saying that she recognized him from "just his expression". This may be indicative of some skill in Legilimency.
  +
  +
==Possessions==
  +
[[File:Luna1stwand.jpg|thumb|left|145px|Luna's first wand]]
  +
*'''[[Luna Lovegood's wands|Wand]]''': Luna Lovegood's first wand was of unknown length, wood, and core material. This wand she used through out her Hogwarts career, until she was captured and her wand confiscated by Death Eaters in the middle of her sixth year. Her second wand is of unknown length, wood, and core material as well. It was made by [[Garrick Ollivander]] in the spring of [[1998]] after his rescue from [[Malfoy Manor]].
  +
[[File:Lion_Lovegood.jpg|thumb|130px|Luna wearing her lion hat in support of Gryffindor]]
  +
*'''[[Luna Lovegood's lion hat|Lion hat]]''': Luna created his hat that had the appearance of an ordinary pointed hat topped with a fake stuffed lion. When she tapped the hat with her wand, it let out an extremely realistic roar. She wore it to show her support of [[Gryffindor]] whenever they played against the [[Slytherin Quidditch team]].
  +
*'''[[Luna Lovegood's eagle hat|Eagle hat]]''': Luna wore this hat whenever the [[Ravenclaw Quidditch team]] played against the [[Gryffindor Quidditch team]]. On top of the hat is what appears to be a living eagle, which flapped its wings.
  +
*'''[[Luna Lovegood's dress robes|Dress robes]]''': Luna wore silver dress robes to the [[Slug Club Christmas Party]] in 1996 when she was taken as a guest by Harry Potter. Luna also owned a pair of [[Luna Lovegood's yellow dress robes|yellow dress robes]] that she wore to the [[wedding of Bill and Fleur ]]in 1997.
  +
*'''[[Luna Lovegood's beetle wing earrings|Beetle wing earrings]]''': This was one of the the items on her lost possessions list. She, at first, had believed they were stolen and taken away by [[Nargals]], but then later realised it was just her classmates.
  +
*'''[[Luna Lovegood's silver star earrings|Silver star earrings]]''': Luna wore these to the Slug Club Christmas Party in 1996, along with her silver dress robes.
  +
*'''[[Dirigible plum earrings|Dirigible plum-shaped earrings]]''': Luna wore these earrings when she expressed her belief in Harry, during 1995. In 1998 Harry noticed a bush covered in exceptionally strange and orange, radish-like fruit called [[Dirigible plum]] and notes their striking resemblance to Luna's earrings.
  +

"The girl gave off an aura of distinct dottiness. Perhaps it was the fact that she had stuck her wand behind her left ear for safekeeping, or that she had chosen to wear a necklace of Butterbeer caps, or that she was reading a magazine upside down."
—Description of Luna [src]

Luna Lovegood (b. between 1 September, 1980 and 2 May, 1981[1]) was a witch and daughter of Xenophilius and Pandora Lovegood. Her mother accidentally died while experimenting with spells when Luna was nine, and Luna was raised by her father, editor of the magazine The Quibbler, in a rook-like house near the village of Ottery St. Catchpole. Luna attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1992 to 1999 and was sorted into Ravenclaw house. In her fourth year, Luna joined Dumbledore's Army, an organisation taught and led by Harry Potter, of which she became an important member.

She participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries in 1996 and the Battle of the Astronomy Tower in 1997, and co-led the reconstituted Dumbledore's Army when Hogwarts fell under the control of Lord Voldemort. Because of her father's political dissidence at the time, Luna was abducted by Death Eaters to be held ransom, and imprisoned in the dungeons of Malfoy Manor for months. She was freed by Dobby along with several other prisoners in the spring of 1998, and stayed at Shell Cottage until she returned to Hogwarts to participate in the final battle of the Second Wizarding War.

Later in life, Luna became a wizarding naturalist (Magizoologist) and eventually married Rolf Scamander, with whom she had twin sons, Lorcan and Lysander. Luna's good friends Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley also named their daughter and third child Lily Luna Potter after her.

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Luna was the only child of Xenophilius and Pandora Lovegood. Luna's mother was accidentally killed experimenting with a spell that she created when Luna was nine years old. Thus, Luna was subsequently raised by her father. As she witnessed her mother's death, she was able to see Thestrals from that point onwards.

Education at HogwartsEdit

Luna in her fourth year

Luna attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1992 to 1999 and was sorted into Ravenclaw house. She noticed the Hogwarts Thestrals on her very first day at the school, 1 September 1991. During her years at Hogwarts, she met and became a friend of Ginny Weasley. In the summer of 1994, she went to the Quidditch World Cup with her father.

Fourth yearEdit

"Everyone this is Loony Lovegood.... Luna Lovegood."
—Hermione Granger[src]

In Luna's fourth year, she met and befriended Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley, Hermione Granger and Neville Longbottom. She believed Harry's declaration that Lord Voldemort was back. As the year progressed, she was invited to join an underground Defence Against the Dark Arts group called Dumbledore's Army. She eagerly accepted, working hard along with the others and enjoying the company. In an effort to make people believe Harry's story, Hermione arranged an interview for him with Rita Skeeter at the Three Broomsticks — Luna accompanied them so as to persuade her father to publish the interview in The Quibbler.

Near the end of the year, Harry had a vision that his godfather, Sirius Black was being tortured by Lord Voldemort in the Department of Mysteries. Luna and Ginny stood guard while Harry and Hermione snuck into Professor Umbridge's office, to use the fireplace to try to contact Sirius, while Ron attempted to distract Umbridge. However, they were caught, along with Neville Longbottom, by Umbridge and members of the Inquisitorial Squad. They were restrained and gagged, but Luna hardly seemed bothered by this as she was staring, dreamily, through the window as if bored. Harry and Hermione drew Umbridge away into the Forbidden Forest, and Luna, Ginny, Ron, and Neville managed to escape from the Inquisitorial Squad using a variety of hexes and jinxes.

Luna and the other D.A. members during the battle

When they all met up again in the forest, Harry planned to go to the Ministry of Magic. Luna reminded Harry about the Thestrals and suggested using them to get to the Ministry. She then mounted her Thestral side-saddle, "as though she did this every day." She also helped Ron, Hermione and Ginny mount their Thestrals, as the animals were invisible to them. The six D.A. members flew to the Ministry and entered the Department of Mysteries, where Luna heard voices coming from behind a Veil, just as Harry did. The group was soon ambushed by twelve Death Eaters.

Luna participated in the battle that ensued. She protected Ron, who had been hit with a spell that made him highly confused. Luna also attacked a Death Eater who had seized Ginny's ankle with the Reductor Curse, which destroyed a model of the planet Pluto. The model blew up in the Death Eater's face; however, the impact broke Ginny's ankle. Luna guided both the injured Ginny and the Confunded Ron until they met up with Harry and Neville. Luna was one of the last D.A. members to fall, eventually being stunned by a Death Eater and thrown across the room. She regained focus just before the end of the battle and survived relatively unscathed.

At the end of the school year, Luna spoke to Harry, who was mourning the murder of his godfather and had found no comfort in talking to ghosts. Luna told him about her mother's death and her belief that she would see her again someday, which was a comforting thought to Harry.

That summer, Luna and her father went to Sweden using the money the Daily Prophet paid them to reprint The Quibbler's interview with Harry to see if they could catch a Crumple-Horned Snorkack.[4]

Fifth yearEdit

Harry: "So have you had a good term?"
Luna: "Oh, it's been alright. A bit lonely without the D.A. Ginny's been nice, though. She stopped two boys in our Transfiguration class calling me 'Loony' the other day —"
Harry: "How would you like to come with me to Slughorn's party tonight?"

Luna in her fifth year

This year was Luna's O.W.L. year. On her way to Hogwarts in the Hogwarts Express, Luna shared a compartment with Harry Potter and she was accompanied by Neville Longbottom. Luna was holding another edition of the Quibbler, which she told Harry was going strong because of his interview. She then put on a brightly coloured pair of free "Spectrespecs" that were from inside the Quibbler. She was very disappointed to find out that the D.A. would not continue that year.

When Romilda Vane asked Harry if he wanted to join her and her friends in another compartment, while treating Luna and Neville with disdain, Harry coldly rebuffed her, stating that they were his friends. Luna correctly observed that people expected Harry to associate with "cooler" people; he replied that she and Neville were cool, and among his closest and most trustworthy friends.

Luna with Harry go to the Horace Slughorn's Christmas party.

Towards Christmas, Luna comforted Hermione after Ron mocked her in Transfiguration and Hermione ran into the girl's bathroom in tears. Luna had found Hermione crying and Harry had been looking for Hermione to return the books she left in Transfiguration class. After Hermione left, Harry asked Luna if she would like to go to Professor Slughorn's Christmas party with him, just as friends, and Luna accepted his invitation. Luna wore a set of spangled silver robes that was attracting a certain amount of giggling from the onlookers, but she otherwise looked quite nice. While there, she conversed with multiple people, and took an interest in Sanguini, a vampire guest. She also made Harry laugh so hard that mead came out of his nose when she discussed the Rotfang Conspiracy after Professor Snape sneered at Harry's ambition to become an Auror. She continued the discussion of the Rotfang Conspiracy with Professor Trelawney, who seemed completely interested.

Also that year, Luna would temporarily replace Zacharias Smith as Quidditch commentator for the school. Many found Luna's commentary terrible and annoying, as Luna forgot players' names and went off on tangents such as speculating that Smith was suffering from "Loser's Lurgy", or saying how a cloud was interestingly shaped. She never actually reported the score, and Professor McGonagall had to report it. However, after Ron heard this commentary, which he found highly amusing, he said "You know, Luna's grown on me," when previously he found her very strange.

Wand raising1

Luna once gave Harry a note from Albus Dumbledore telling him to come to his office for a private lesson.

At the end of the school year, the castle came under attack by Death Eaters, and Luna was one of the few D.A. members to participate in the ensuing Battle of the Astronomy Tower, along with Neville, Ginny, Ron, and Hermione. Harry asked her and Hermione to watch Snape's office, which they did, but Snape told them that Death Eaters were in the castle and that they had to look after Professor Flitwick, whom he claimed had collapsed. After taking Felix Felicis from Harry, the D.A. members were almost untouchable, and all survived the battle unscathed except Neville, who was injured but soon recovered. Luna helped him into his seat when they attended Albus Dumbledore's funeral at the end of the school year. [5]

Sixth yearEdit

Harry: "The Lovegoods are quite unusual. He could have easily picked it up somewhere and think it's a cross section of the head of a Crumple-Horned Snorkack or something; I don't know what they are, but apparently he and his daughter go on holiday looking for them; That's her."
Viktor Krum: "Vy is she doing that?"
Harry: "Probably trying to get rid of a Wrackspurt."

Luna in her sixth year, wearing dress robes at Bill and Fleur's wedding

On 1 August, 1997, Luna and her father attended the wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour at the Burrow. Luna was able to recognise Harry, who was disguised as a Weasley cousin by use of Polyjuice Potion, by only his expression. She wore yellow dress robes and had a sunflower in her hair, and sat at the same table as Harry, Hermione, and Ron. At one point, Luna danced happily by herself, twirling on the dance floor with her arms raised, which drew attention from a few onlookers.

That day, the Ministry of Magic was taken over by Voldemort, so it was a Death Eater-controlled Hogwarts that Luna returned to for her sixth year. Severus Snape had been appointed headmaster and Death Eaters Alecto and Amycus Carrow professors. Early in the year, Luna, Ginny, and Neville attempted to steal Godric Gryffindor's Sword from the Headmaster's office. Snape caught them and sent them into the Forbidden Forest with Rubeus Hagrid as punishment. The three of them revived and led Dumbledore's Army, which tried to sabotage the Death Eaters' control of the school and to help Harry, Ron and Hermione — who were off hunting down Voldemort's Horcruxes — in any way they could.

On her way home over the Christmas holidays, Death Eaters captured Luna because her father had been printing stories in support of Harry.[6]

Capture and escapeEdit

Hermione: "Where's Luna? Let's see what she thinks."
Ron: "Cowardly old wart. Luna's got ten times his guts."

LunaandOllivander

Ollivander and Luna held captive in the basement of Malfoy Manor

It was believed that Luna was held captive at Azkaban, though she was actually imprisoned in the basement of Malfoy Manor, along with the famed wandmaker Garrick Ollivander, to whom she proved a great comfort. Her father was so desperate to get her back that he tried to turn Harry, Hermione and Ron over to the Ministry in exchange for her freedom; the trio escaped, but Hermione ensured that the Death Eaters Xenophilius called glimpsed Harry as they left, so that neither he nor Luna would be punished. The Lovegoods' home was largely destroyed with an erumpent horn, which Xenophilius had believed to be a Crumple-Horned Snorkack's, blew up inside.

The prisoners in Malfoy Manor were soon joined by Harry, Ron, Dean Thomas, and Griphook the goblin, while Hermione was tortured for information upstairs by Bellatrix Lestrange. After Luna helped cut the ropes off their new cell-mates, Dobby the house-elf came to free them. He took Luna, Dean and Ollivander to Shell Cottage, the home of Bill and Fleur Weasley, and then returned to assist Harry, Hermione, Ron and Griphook in escaping the Manor. He died in rescuing them.

Up until the Battle of Hogwarts, Luna stayed at the cottage for the remainder of the war, and when Dobby was buried, she closed the house-elf's eyes and provided the eulogy, thanking him for rescuing her. During her stay, she practised using a new wand that Ollivander had made for her. She also seemed to have started a friendship with Dean. It is unknown what Luna did after Harry, Ron and Hermione left Shell Cottage in order to break into Gringotts Wizarding Bank, but she returned to Hogwarts in May when Neville signalled her as to the trio's return. All of Dumbledore's Army was reassembled and prepared to fight.[6]

Battle of HogwartsEdit

Luna: "I'd want some peace and quiet, if it were me."
Harry: "I'd love some."

Harry and Luna in Ravenclaw Tower

When the trio asked the Ravenclaw D.A. members if they were familiar with an item that had once belonged to their house founder, Luna mentioned the lost diadem. She took Harry to the Ravenclaw common room, answering the riddle, "What came first, the Phoenix or the flame?", with "A circle has no beginning.", in order to gain entrance, in order to show him a replica of the diadem. There, she stunned Alecto Carrow, who was waiting for them per Lord Voldemort's orders. When given the choice, she joined the battle rather than evacuating with the younger students.

Luna and Neville Longbottom after the final battle

At one point, she, Ernie Macmillan, and Seamus Finnigan helped the Trio drive off a group of Dementors that attacked them by casting their Patronuses. Luna encouraged Harry to think of something happy, enabling him to summon his Patronus as well, which caused the dementors to finally scatter, Luna and the others slipped back into the battle. Later, near the end of the battle, she fought against Bellatrix Lestrange alongside Hermione and Ginny. When Bellatrix nearly hit Ginny with a Killing Curse, Molly Weasley stepped in and killed her.

Luna witnessed Harry Potter's final defeat of Lord Voldemort and was among the first to congratulate him. A little while later, she created a diversion so that Harry could slip away from the victory celebrations with Ron and Hermione, and have a little break.[6]

Later lifeEdit

After leaving school, Luna became a famous wizarding naturalist, travelling the world in search of strange creatures.[7][8] She discovered and classified many species that had never been encountered before, but was never able to find the Crumple-Horned Snorkack; thus, she had to come to terms with the fact that there are some things that simply do not exist.[7][8]

Harry and Ginny gave their daughter Lily, born in 2008 or 2009, the middle name Luna, considering Luna to be a "dear friend."[9][10]

Luna married fellow naturalist Rolf Scamander, grandson of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them author Newt Scamander, considerably later in life than Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny, who all married and started families in their early-to-mid twenties.[7][9][10] According to Rita Skeeter, Luna wore a wedding dress made of rainbows, spangles and a tiara of silver unicorn horns, which her husband looked at with a shocked expression. This dress was voted ‘Most Hideous Outfit of the Year' by readers of Rita Skeeter's regular Daily Prophet column. The couple also had twin sons named Lorcan and Lysander.[9][10]

Luna and Rolf attended the 2014 Quidditch World Cup along with the rest of her friends in Dumbledore's Army. She wore robes made of the flags of all sixteen qualifying countries, but her twins were at home with their grandpa and did not come. At the final of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup, she sat in the VIP boxes with Dumbledore's Army and her husband, where he held her hands, which might have been because he was trying to prevent his wife from putting on one of her famous Special Event Hats.

Physical appearanceEdit

"She had straggly, waist-length, dirty blonde hair, very pale eyebrows, and protuberant eyes that gave her a permanently surprised look."
Harry Potter[src]
Lunanewhbp

Luna Lovegood

In 1997, sixteen-year-old Luna had waist-length, straggly, dirty blonde hair, protuberant grey eyes, which often seemed to be dreamily distracted, and faint eyebrows. She had an aura of "distinct dottiness" about her and was known to put her wand behind her left ear for safekeeping.

Luna had a unique fashion sense that other people usually found bizarre. She often wore odd pieces of jewellery such as a Butterbeer cork necklace and Dirigible plum earrings, and in 1996, a pair of Spectrespecs. Luna often didn't wear shoes because students in her house would take her shoes and hide them. At Hogwarts Quidditch matches, Luna supported Gryffindor against every House except Ravenclaw; to show her support for Gryffindor, she would wear a hat in the shape of a lion head that roars, and to show support for Ravenclaw she would wear an eagle hat with flapping wings.[4] At Professor Slughorn's Christmas party in 1996, she wore spangled silver robes[5]. At Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour's wedding, she wore bright yellow robes because she was taught it brought luck to a wedding to wear sun colours and had a sunflower in her hair, as well.[6] She was described as "pretty" on some occasions, despite her odd clothes.

Personality and traitsEdit

"Luna was once again demonstrating her usual knack of speaking of uncomfortable truths; he has never meet anyone quite like her."
Harry Potter[src]
File-Luna Lovegood (HBP promo) 3

Luna's unusual appearance

Luna was an extremely quirky girl with a serene disposition and many eccentric beliefs and qualities. She was a complete nonconformist; she lacked self-consciousness and wasn't afraid to show who she truly was. Luna was also intelligent and unusually perceptive, having been sorted into Ravenclaw,[4] "where those of wit and learning will always find their kind."

Although many thought Luna was bizarre, Harry, Hermione, Ron, Neville, Ginny, Dean Thomas and Ollivander eventually became very fond of her.[5] Her demeanour and voice were often distant and dreamy, and she would drift away from a conversation she did not find interesting. She had an uncanny way of making others uncomfortable by being bluntly honest — a "knack for embarrassing honesty" according to Harry. She was completely unflappable and rarely seemed anxious or under stress, even under difficult circumstances such as being a prisoner of Malfoy Manor. Luna was very good at comforting others, such as when she comforted Harry Potter after his godfather's death,[4] and Mr. Ollivander while they were imprisoned together.[6]

Luna was often the subject of ridicule and had difficulty making friends. Other students gave her the nickname of "Loony Lovegood" and even stole and hid her things. She was unfazed by this, though, and instead chose to be nonjudgmental and accepting of the others around her.[4] She once said that she does not like dancing much, though she did dance some at the wedding of Bill and Fleur. Luna seems to have enjoyed artistic pursuits in her free time; her house was filled with various things that she painted.[6]

Luna was very loyal to the few friends she had, supporting Harry even when he was outlawed by the Ministry of Magic. She also displayed admirable bravery during both the Battle of the Department of Mysteries and the Battle of Hogwarts.

Luna's beliefsEdit

"The Aurors are part of the Rotfang Conspiracy, I thought everyone knew that. They're working from within to bring down the Ministry of Magic using a combination of Dark magic and gum disease."
—Luna after Harry Potter discussed his wish to become an Auror[src]

Luna believed in many things that few others do. Given her inclination towards superstition, she would've probably liked Divination. However, as she grew older, she came to accept that some things simply do not exist.[7][8]

Magical abilities and skillsEdit

Patronus2

Luna's corporal Patronus (form of a hare), age fourteen

Even from a young age, Luna proved herself to be a skilful and talented witch, very much like her friend, Ginny Weasley. She was able to conjure a corporeal Patronus at the age of fourteen, which was a very advanced piece of magic, and proof that she possessed superior magical ability.[11]

  • Duelling: Despite her young age, Luna was a competent duellist. At the age of fourteen, she participated in and survived the Battle of the Department of Mysteries with no more than a few minor injuries. She emerged from the Battle of the Astronomy Tower with no major injuries. During the Battle of Hogwarts, she duelled against Lord Voldemort's most powerful servant, Bellatrix Lestrange, whom she fought alongside Hermione and Ginny.
  • Charms: In her fourth year, Luna learned how to conjure a corporeal Patronus, which was a very advanced piece of magic. It took the form of a hare.
  • Non-verbal magic: Shortly before the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998, Luna accompanied Harry to Ravenclaw Tower, where she wordlessly stunned Death Eater Alecto Carrow, although she admitted that that was the first time she had ever used that spell outside of practice.
  • Care of Magical Creatures: After her graduation from Hogwarts, Luna became a Magizoologist, a wizarding naturalist. To become a Magizoologist, one must achieve an O.W.L. and a N.E.W.T. in Care of Magical Creatures, so it can be reasonably theorised that she excelled in the subject.
  • Creativity: Luna invented a lion-shaped hat that, with a tap of a wand, made a realistic roar. She also made a hat with a flapping eagle.
  • Leadership skills: At the age of sixteen, Luna co-led Dumbledore's Army along with her friends, Ginny and Neville. Their leadership was so efficient that she was abducted in an attempt to force the resistance to surrender, though she was ultimately rescued by Harry and Ron.
  • Legilimency (possibly): At the wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour, she recognized Harry Potter although he had transformed himself using Polyjuice Potion, saying that she recognized him from "just his expression". This may be indicative of some skill in Legilimency.

PossessionsEdit

Luna1stwand

Luna's first wand

  • Wand: Luna Lovegood's first wand was of unknown length, wood, and core material. This wand she used through out her Hogwarts career, until she was captured and her wand confiscated by Death Eaters in the middle of her sixth year. Her second wand is of unknown length, wood, and core material as well. It was made by Garrick Ollivander in the spring of 1998 after his rescue from Malfoy Manor.
Lion Lovegood

  • Lion hat: Luna created his hat that had the appearance of an ordinary pointed hat topped with a fake stuffed lion. When she tapped the hat with her wand, it let out an extremely realistic roar. She wore it to show her support of Gryffindor whenever they played against the Slytherin Quidditch team.
  • Eagle hat: Luna wore this hat whenever the Ravenclaw Quidditch team played against the Gryffindor Quidditch team. On top of the hat is what appears to be a living eagle, which flapped its wings.
  • Dress robes: Luna wore silver dress robes to the Slug Club Christmas Party in 1996 when she was taken as a guest by Harry Potter. Luna also owned a pair of yellow dress robes that she wore to the wedding of Bill and Fleur in 1997.
  • Beetle wing earrings: This was one of the the items on her lost possessions list. She, at first, had believed they were stolen and taken away by Nargals, but then later realised it was just her classmates.
  • Silver star earrings: Luna wore these to the Slug Club Christmas Party in 1996, along with her silver dress robes.
  • Dirigible plum-shaped earrings: Luna wore these earrings when she expressed her belief in Harry, during 1995. In 1998 Harry noticed a bush covered in exceptionally strange and orange, radish-like fruit called Dirigible plum and notes their striking resemblance to Luna's earrings.
  • Hare bracelet: This bracelet was owned by Luna. It was made of a golden material and adorned with a small hare penchant, similar to her Patronus.
  • Patterned shoes: Luna has a pair of patterned converse, with what looks likes strawberries on them. They are stolen by some other pupils and hidden, with the rest of her shoes. Luna has to walk around bare foot for most of The Order of the Phoenix because of this.
  • Purple Quill: Luna owned this quill during the 1995-1996 school year before it was stolen by her classmates. It was produced from a feather of a woodpecker.
Luna Lovegood's Butterbeer Cork Necklace

Luna's necklace

  • Butterbeer cork necklace: She often wore it during her school days, to keep away Nargals. Many of the students found this odd.
  • Beetle ring: Luna wore this ring in 1995 and possibly earlier.
  • Bubble Bow Booster: Luna owned a kit that was still in its original packaging, but someone took it from her and hid it during the 1995-1996 school year.
  • Sum-solving ink: This was a type of ink that presumably helped solve math problems. Luna owned a bottle of turquoise sum-solving ink, but someone took it from her and hid it during her fourth year.
  • Dumbledore's Army coin: Luna owned one of these coins as a member of Dumbledore's Army.
  • Easy Spells to Fool Muggles: Luna owned a copy of this book by Luca Caruso but, it was stolen from her sometime during the 1995-1996 school year.
Spectrespecs 02

Spectrespecs

  • Spectrespecs: Luna owned and wore a pair of Spectrespecs on the train ride to Hogwarts in 1996. The spectrespecs were large and colourful and were given away free in an issue of The Quibbler in 1996.

RelationshipsEdit

FamilyEdit

ParentsEdit

"They took my Luna because of what I've been writing. They took my Luna and I don't know where she is, what they've done to her. But they might give her back to me if I-If I help; I must save Luna. I cannot lose Luna. You must not leave."
Xenophilius Lovegood to Harry, Ron and Hermione[src]
Xenophilius-lovegood-gallery

Luna's father Xenophilius

With the death of her mother when she was nine years old, Luna was raised solely by her father. Because of this, she was an only child and the two were very close. Xenophilius raised his daughter to share many of his unusual beliefs, and the two enjoyed going on holidays to look for creatures such as Crumple-Horned Snorkacks in Sweden.[4] Luna believed anything her father wrote in The Quibbler magazine, and came to his defence when Hermione Granger claimed the magazine was "rubbish."

When Luna was abducted by Death Eaters in 1997 to force Xenophilius to stop opposing the Voldemort-controlled Ministry of Magic in The Quibbler, her father was beside himself. He was desperate to the point of ceasing his public support of Harry Potter and attempting to turn him, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley over to the Death Eaters in exchange for Luna's safety. When he failed to do so, Xenophilius was arrested by Selwyn and Travers.[6]

Husband and sonsEdit

Luna would also eventually meet Rolf Scamander, grandson of the famous Newt Scamander and his wife Porpentina. Rolf would become her husband and the union would produce twins, Lorcan and Lysander.

Harry PotterEdit

Luna: "People expect you to have cooler friends than us."
Harry: "You are cool. None of them were at the Ministry. They didn't fight with me."
Luna: "That's a very nice thing to say."
— Luna and Harry in 1996[src]
PromoHP7 Harry Potter

Harry Potter, a close friend

When Harry Potter first met Luna in 1995, he found her rather odd, but was grateful that she was one of the few people to believe his story that Lord Voldemort had returned, and sympathised with the loss of her mother and her status as an outcast. After the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, they discussed the death of Sirius Black and the possibility of an afterlife. Harry "found that the terrible weight in his stomach seemed to have lessened slightly".[4]

At the beginning of the next school year, he reacted coldly when Romilda Vane implied that Luna and Neville Longbottom were not worth spending time with; a contrast to the previous year, when he felt slightly embarrassed that his crush Cho Chang saw him in Luna's company. In 1996, Harry asked Luna to attend Professor Slughorn's Christmas party with him as friends after reflecting on how "he had never met anyone quite like her".[5] Harry was one of the portraits of her friends that Luna painted and hung on her bedroom ceiling.

When Harry took Polyjuice Potion to look like Barny at the Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour, she recognised him from the look on his face. Shortly before going to sacrifice himself during the Battle of Hogwarts, Harry noted that Luna was among his closest friends, whom he had hoped to see one last time before his death. After Voldemort's defeat at Harry's hands, Luna sensed that Harry wanted to get away from the victory celebrations, and created a distraction so that he could slip away with Ron and Hermione.[6] Later in life, Harry and Luna would remain close friends; he and Ginny gave their daughter the middle name "Luna" in honour of her.

Hermione GrangerEdit

"Luna has told me all about you, young lady. You are, I gather, not unintelligent, but painfully limited, narrow, close-minded."
Xenophilius Lovegood to Hermione[src]
HermioneGranger

Hermione Granger, a close friend

Luna and Hermione Granger did not have an ideal first meeting, as Hermione called The Quibbler "rubbish" without knowing that Luna's father was the editor. She was initially frustrated with Luna's belief in all manner of things without logical grounds or proof. However, she invited Luna to Dumbledore's Army and the two became friends. Hermione's opinion of Luna particularly seemed to improve after Luna proved her loyalty and bravery by participating in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, as she simply accepted that she and Luna had very different world views.[4]

The following school year, Luna comforted Hermione over her fight with Ron Weasley when she ended up crying in the bathroom at one point[5]. At Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour's wedding, Hermione tried to kick Ron for teasing Luna, and later defended her again from the insults of the portrait of Phineas Nigellus Black. Hermione was among the portraits Luna painted on her bedroom ceiling, circled by the words "friends". When Luna's father attempted to turn Harry, Ron and Hermione over to Death Eaters in exchange for his daughter's safety in 1998, Hermione engineered their escape so that the Death Eaters saw Harry briefly, thus ensuring that both Luna and her father were not harmed.[6]

Luna and Hermione also fought at the Battle of the Astronomy Tower and the Battle of Hogwarts, where she, Seamus Finnigan and Ernie Macmillan saved Hermione, Harry and Ron from Dementors. During the final stage of the battle, Luna, Hermione, and Ginny Weasley fought together against Bellatrix Lestrange, Voldemort's most powerful Death Eater. Hermione and Luna both survived the war, and it can be presumed that the pair remained very good friends during adulthood as well. Luna may be one of the best female friends of Hermione (along with Ginny), as she was only seen with these girls during her school-time at Hogwarts

Ron WeasleyEdit

"He says very funny things sometimes, doesn't he? But he can be a bit unkind. I noticed that last year."
—Luna on Ron Weasley in 1996[src]
Ron-Weasley-harry-potter-and-the-deathly-hallows

Ron Weasley, a close friend

At the beginning of their acquaintance, Ron Weasley thought Luna was weird and was not particularly interested in knowing her, even occasionally referring to her as "Loony". Luna, on the other hand, seemed to find Ron very funny but rather insensitive in his relationships at times.

Ron eventually grew fonder of Luna, marking her as his good friend, after getting to know her better through Dumbledore's Army and her being one of the only D.A. members to come to the trio's assistance when they tried to save Sirius Black, during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries.[4] He was particularly amused by her Quidditch commentary in 1996[5] and thought highly of her bravery. When she attended his brother Bill's wedding, Ron was further amused by her behaviour and remarked that she gave "good value". However, Ron was still prone to tease Luna and scoff at her unusual beliefs at times.[6] Ron and Luna also fought at the Battle of the Astronomy Tower and the Battle of Hogwarts, where she, Seamus Finnigan and Ernie Macmillan saved Ron, Harry and Hermione from Dementors. Ron and Luna both survived the war, and the good friends remained in contact in adulthood.

Ginny WeasleyEdit

"I do like her, she's very nice."
—Luna Lovegood about Ginny Weasley[src]
Ginny-Weasley

Ginny Weasley, her good friend

Luna and Ginny Weasley were in the same year at Hogwarts, though in different houses; Ginny was in Gryffindor whereas Luna was in Ravenclaw. Ginny seemed to find Luna rather peculiar, as she first referred to Luna as "Loony Lovegood" (though in an affectionate way). The two were very friendly, as Ginny led Harry Potter and Neville Longbottom into her train compartment in 1995, conversing politely with her.[4]

Luna became one of Ginny's best friends through Dumbledore's Army, and Ginny began telling others not to call Luna "Loony", prompting Luna to randomly state during her Quidditch commentary that Ginny was nice and she liked her.[5] Along with Neville, Luna and Ginny led the re-formed Dumbledore's Army while Hogwarts was under Voldemort's control.[6] Ginny was also one of the five portraits — along with Harry, Ron, Hermione and Neville — that Luna painted and hung from her bedroom ceiling, with the word "friends" joining them together in gold writing.

Ginny and Harry Potter named their daughter after Luna, considering Luna is a "dear friend". Luna may be one of the best female friends of Ginny (along with Hermione), as she was only seen with these girls during her school-time at Hogwarts.

Neville LongbottomEdit

Luna: "Well done, Neville."

Neville-promo-pics-neville-longbottom-28261912-390-520

Neville Longbottom, a very close friend

Luna and Neville Longbottom, a Gryffindor student, first met on the Hogwarts Express, in 1995. Neville found Luna a bit "odd", as she believed in the existence of strange, mythical creatures, had a tendency to read magazines upside down, and wore earrings that appeared to be made of radishes. Luna, like Harry and Neville, had the ability to see Thestrals, as they had all seen someone die. Neville fought alongside Luna at the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, the Battle of the Astronomy Tower and the Battle of Hogwarts. At some point, they became very close friends. During Luna's sixth year at Hogwarts, she, Neville and Ginny, re-formed and co-led Dumbledore's Army in order to oppose the Carrows.

Dumbledore's ArmyEdit

"I enjoyed the meetings too,... it was like having friends."
—Luna regarding the D.A.[src]
Dumbledore's Army

Dumbledore's Army.

After they were both rescued from Malfoy Manor in 1998, Luna and Dean Thomas seemed to grow close while staying at Shell Cottage. Dean still seemed rather bemused at some of the odd things Luna said at times, but did not ridicule her and was seen helping her in the Room of Requirement just before the Battle of Hogwarts.[6]

Luna also grew close with many of the other D.A. members, such as Seamus Finnigan and Ernie Macmillan, who she was seen fighting alongside during the Battle of Hogwarts.

Luna had met other members of Dumbledore's Army; there were Padma Patil, Cho Chang, Terry Boot, Anthony Goldstein, Michael Corner and Marietta Edgecombe from her house (all of them fought at the Battle of Hogwarts, except Marietta), Hannah Abbott, Justin Finch-Fletchley, Susan Bones and Zacharias Smith from Hufflepuff (it is possible that all of them fought at the Battle of Hogwarts, except Zacharias), and Fred and George Weasley, Angelina Johnson, Katie Bell, Lavender Brown, Alicia Spinnet, Lee Jordan, Parvati Patil, Padma's twin sister and Colin and Dennis Creevey from Gryffindor. Fred, Lavender and Colin were killed at the Battle of Hogwarts.

Other friendshipsEdit

Luna: "Whenever you're ready, Sir."
Dobby: "Sir? I like her very much."
— Luna and Dobby in Malfoy Manor[src]
DOBBY2

Dobby, her friend

Luna liked Dobby the house-elf, who came to rescue her from Malfoy Manor. After Dobby was killed by Bellatrix Lestrange, Luna closed his eyes, to make him "seem like he was sleeping." She also said a few words to Dobby during his funeral.

Luna had also met Garrick Ollivander, the wandmaker, at the Malfoy Manor, where they were both imprisoned. She comforted Ollivander, and gave him courage. After they both escaped, Ollivander, who had grown quite fond of Luna, made her a new wand.

She also met Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour when she stayed for a few weeks at their house, Shell Cottage. She left Shell Cottage when she, Dean, Bill and Fleur went to fight in the Battle of Hogwarts.

Luna thought Rubeus Hagrid was a poor teacher, saying that the students in Ravenclaw thought him to be a bit of a joke, and that she preferred Professor Grubbly-Plank. It is possible this opinion changed during the 1997–1998 school year, when they both acted in opposition to the Death Eaters' regime at Hogwarts.

EtymologyEdit

  • Luna means "Moon" in Latin (as well as in Italian, Russian, Spanish, Bulgarian and Romanian). People believed that the moon caused craziness, which may be why she's the way she is. Her nickname, "Loony," also references the moon and its ties with insanity, as it is short for "lunatic."
  • Lovegood is a real surname and a compound word (Love and Good). Speaking in accordance of her having good feelings for every person she knew, hence Lovegood.
  • Luna Lovegood is also alliterative, for effect.

Author's commentsEdit

J. K. Rowling has said that the character of Luna took her by surprise, but that she was very fun to write, and contrasted her with Hermione Granger: "She's slightly out of step in many ways but she's the anti-Hermione. Hermione's so logical and inflexible in so many ways and Luna is likely to believe ten impossible things before breakfast."[19] Rowling has named Luna as one of her favourite characters.[20] Together with Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Neville and Draco, Luna is part of the "big seven" characters that Rowling considers to be the most major characters in the series.[21] She was also noted to be very pleased with the casting of Evanna Lynch as Luna as she had had lunch with the actress and said she was "perfect."

Luna in the filmsEdit

Evanna Lynch plays Luna in the films, and since Evanna is Irish, Luna has a slight touch of an Irish accent. In the films, Harry meets her at the school carriages where she is introduced by Hermione instead of Ginny. Luna's Patronus is revealed to be a Hare, this is later confirmed to be canon in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Luna is seen barefoot throughout the film because students had stolen her shoes. In addition, Luna seems to have a taste for pudding and introduces Harry to the Thestrals; she offers a young Thestral an apple, which was turned down, before offering it a bit of raw meat with an accepting smile.

She also skipped around the school. Her butterbeer cork necklace has only one cork, which she says is to repel Nargles. She also wears a beetle ring. During the battle at the Ministry, instead of being knocked unconscious, she was hit in the mouth by a Death Eater before using an unusual verbally-incanted version of Levicorpus to hurl her attacker away. When Ginny disintegrates the prophecy shelves with a Reductor Curse, Luna is so distracted by the light that she does not run away, but Neville saves her. She is then taken hostage along with all of Harry's companions but is rescued by the appearance of the Order of the Phoenix members (Sirius, Remus, Tonks, Kingsley, and Mad Eye).

In the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, she states that she often sleep-walks at night and wears her shoes to bed just in case.

Lynch was a huge fan of the series before she was cast. After J.K. Rowling had met with the actress, she told the director one thing: "Perfect."

Luna in the gamesEdit

Luna introducing Harry to the Thestrals

Luna's role in the game is much the same as her role in the film, though we do not meet her until Harry goes to find the people who signed up for the D.A. to tell them about the Room of Requirement. The Player has to help Luna feed the Thestrals, and then she will appear in the Room of Requirement. Later in the game, Fred and George Weasley send Luna to tell Harry how to swamp the clock tower courtyard, with one of their Portable Swamps. At the end of the game, the player must help Luna find her missing objects, which are: a jumper, a newspaper, a lion mask, a pair of pink shoes, and her purse. Luna is also a playable character in the HBP game. She is a two-player duelling character and is unlocked (with Draco Malfoy) by retrieving two crests.
