One of Harry's fellow Gryffindor students. He returned to Hogwarts at the beginning of the school year as, being a pureblooded wizard, he didn't have to fear for his life. At school, Neville bravely carried on with Dumbledore's Army and leads the student resistance movement until it becomes too dangerous to continue. He reconnects with Harry when Harry arrives in Aberforth's pub and learns that Neville and other resistance fighters have been hiding out in the Room of Requirement. Though Neville has always been a hopeless student and a poor wizard, he's extremely brave and having something to fight for helps Neville to come into himself. Harry tasks him with killing Nagini with Gryffindor's sword and Neville is able to carry this out spectacularly. In adulthood, Neville becomes a Hogwarts professor.
