Personal History

To have known Neville Longbottom as a child, you would scarcely recognize the man he is now. He grew up practically an orphan, his parents having been committed to a psychiatric ward at St Mungos shortly after his birth. His Gram, who raised him, was a bit overprotective and worried he was a squib because he showed almost no magical aptitude before attending Hogwarts. Even in his earliest years, he struggled with his studies, only passing many classes with the help of Hermione Granger.

Neville discovered in his second year that he had an unusual knack for herbology, and would often spend his free time helping Professor Sprout. The plants never teased him, never judged him and he knew exactly what to expect from them. As his confidence grew in his knowledge, he began to excel in other areas. He struggled with potions, mainly because Professor Snape seemed to enjoy singling him out for ridicule.

Neville was one of the first students to sign up for the DA, and as a result, gained not only the skills to defend himself, but the confidence to be able to implement them when he faced off against the Death Eaters in the Battle of the Ministry of Magic.
In his seventh year, Neville was one of the few Gryffindor boys to return to Hogwarts. With Harry, Ron and Hermione off searching for the horocruxes, Neville, along with Ginny and Luna, revived the DA, and fought back against the Death eaters who had taken over the school. In the final Battle of Hogwarts, it was Neville who slayed the final horocrux, helping bring an end to the war. He was celebrated as a hero.

Neville returned for an additional seventh year, mainly because he felt his education was lacking. He passed his Hebology, DADA and Charms NEWTs with flying colors and has recently taken a position as a staff Herbologists with the Herbary Greenhouse.
