Lavender Brown is a fictional character from the Harry Potter Universe.
Lavender Brown is a Pure-Blood witch born to Mr. and Mrs. Brown. She was in the same year as Harry Potter at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was sorted in Gryffindor House. She shared a dorm with Parvati Patil, who she became very close friends with, Hermione Granger, Fay Dunbar, who appears first in the Prisoner of Azkaban video-game, and another girl. She and best friend Parvati grew very fond of the elective class Divination in their third year onward and were perhaps Professor Trelawney's most attentive students. Lavender developed a relationship with Ron Weasley in her sixth year, but their relationship consisted of mostly snogging and not much verbal communication. She helped fight in the Battle of Hogwarts.
 The Philosopher's Stone
Lavender attended Hogwarts for her first year as the same year as Harry Potter. She was sorted into Gryffindor House and shared a dormitory with Hermione Granger, Parvati Patil, Fay Dunbar, and another girl. She and Parvati easily became best friends.
 The Chamber of Secrets
Lavender entered her second year in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. She joined the Dueling Club and most likely had a crush on Professor Lockhart, as she enthusiastically handed him back his wand after being mercilessly disarmed by Professor Snape. She was also in the room when Hermione Granger asked Professor Binns about information on the Chamber of Secrets in one History of Magic class.
 The Prisoner of Azkaban
Lavender began attending Divination and Care of Magical Creatures classes as her electives in her third year at Hogwarts. She and Parvati Patil were very interested in Divination and grew fond of their teacher, Professor Trelawney. Professor Trelawney predicted the death of Lavender's pet rabbit Binky in saying that what Lavender dreaded would happen on October 16th, and so it did: Her pet rabbit was killed by a fox. Since then, she greatly believed in Professor Trelawney, her class, and her predictions.
 The Goblet of Fire
In her fourth year, Lavender attended the Yule Ball with fellow fourth year Gryffindor, Seamus Finnigan, though it is not confirmed that they were in a relationship with each other at that time. During one Care of Magical Creatures lesson, Lavender stayed behind to help collect the scattered Blast-Ended Skrewts. In one Defence Against the Dark Arts class, Professor Mad-Eye Moody put her under the Imperius Curse, which caused Lavender to imitate a squirrel, the result being she humiliated herself.
 The Order of the Phoenix
When Harry Potter claimed that Lord Voldemort had returned, Lavender was quite skeptical and did not believe him, as did her friend Seamus Finnigan. However, she most likely eventually believed Harry. She joined Dumbledore's Army and made failed attempts at a conjuring a Patronus, as she only produced little silvery wisps. She and Parvati were very upset when Dolores Umbridge mercilessly sacked Sybill Trelawney, but they developed a crush on the new Divination teacher, Firenze.
 The Half-Blood Prince
In her sixth year, Lavender developed a crush on fellow sixth year Gryffindor Ron Weasley, and would giggle at even the dumbest comments he had made. After the Gryffindor Quidditch team won a match, Lavender and Ron kissed, beginning a relationship. However, the relationship lacked verbal communication and consisted of mostly snogging. Although she hadn't realized, Lavender caused Hermione to be jealous and angry whenever she and Ron were caught kissing in public. The relationship continued for a time. Lavender sent Ron a very unmanly necklace for Christmas as a present, and Ron did not seem to happy with it. Whenever Lavender went to visit Ron at the hospital wing after he had been poisoned with mead from Horace Slughorn, Ron would pretend to be sleeping, much to Lavender's displeasure. Their relationship came to an end when Lavender saw Ron leave the boys' dormitory with Hermione, and Lavender seemed upset for quite a while after breaking up with him.
 The Deathly Hallows
Lavender returned for her seventh and final year at Hogwarts, despite the dangers that returning to school held.
 Battle of Hogwarts
She fought in the Battle of Hogwarts and was about to be attacked by Death Eater Fenrir Greyback, but her room-mate and friend Hermione Granger blasted Greyback away, saving her. Sybill Trelawney also dropped a crystal ball on Greyback's head. Her life after the Battle of Hogwarts and whether she survived the battle or not is unknown.
