Notes and references

  1. J.K. Rowling: A Year in the Life confirms that Luna had children "considerably later" than Harry and his friends; Harry's last child was born in 2008 as was Ron and Hermione's. While the exact date cannot be established as "considerable" has too many variables, we know it was after 2008.
  3. Lysander's father, Rolf, is a half-blood, making Lysander a half-blood as well.
  4. Rolf, Lysander's father, is described as "swarthy", making it possible that Lysander is of a darker shade of skin.
