Luna was born on February 13, 1981, to Xenophilius and Pandora Lovegood. Her mum died from experimenting with spells when Luna was 9, and as a result, she was able to see the thestrals when she first went to Hogwarts. Arriving at Hogwarts a year after Harry and his friends, she was sorted into Ravenclaw, and enjoyed every minute of her schooling. After Hogwarts, she continued to study to become a Naturalist under the eye of Newt Scamander, a Magic Zoologist. She later married Newt's grandson, Rolf, and the two had twin boys, Lorcan and Lysander Scamander.
