Neville Longbottom was a student in Harry Potter's year. He was in the Gryfindor class. Neville was a close friend of Harry's. He isn't really good at magic at first, (except Herbology) but later, when Harry teaches kids spells, he becomes one of the best. Harry also finds out that Neville's parents were tortured by Bellatrix Lestrange until they lost their minds. Neville was also one of six kids to fight at the ministry with his friends, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Ginny Weasley, and Luna Lovegood.
