19Saved: Neville becomes a hero

The Wizarding War

When Neville Longbottom first appeared in the Harry Potter films, he seemed afraid of just about everything. He was eventually revealed to be the son of parents who lost their minds due to being tormented by Bellatrix Lestrange. Prior to that Neville’s folks had fought in the first wizarding war.

While it

seemed like Neville was too weak to follow in his parents’ footsteps, especially after falling prey to Hermione’s full body-bind curse, he surprised anyone that underestimated him. In fact, not only did he take part in the second wizarding war but he even played an integral part in Voldemort’s defeat, since he saved many wounded warriors and destroyed Voldemort’s final Horcrux.
