Lily Janice Potter (b. January 30, 1960-d. October 31, 1981) is the late mother of Harry Potter and the wife of James Potter. Lily was a gifted witch while in school, and one of the most powerful mage students ever trained by Minerva McGonagall, Rolanda Hooch, Pomona Sprout, and Poppy Pomfrey. Her aptitude for potions earned her an apprenticeship under her former potions master at Hogwarts, Horace Slughorn. Under his tutelage, she achieved a mastery at a younger age than any recorded master.
While trained as a mage from 1973-1976, Lily studied alongside Regulus Black, Tristan Flint, Isolde Flint, Mafalda Hopkirk, Mary MacDonald, Dirk Cresswell, Jonathan Williams, Natalie Rushman, Warren Hayes, Jasper Nolan, Courtney Quinn, and Lavinia Cornfoot.
Lily was a powerful witch and a gifted mage. She was a magus and had undergone the Mage Specialization Ritual three times to acquire the titles of Mage Artificer, Blood Mage, and Ward Mage.
