Welcome to another edition of the Harry Potter quizzes. In this one, we will test your knowledge of Luna Lovegood. But before we begin the hardest Luna Lovegood quiz, let us have a look at some details about her.
There is a reason everyone loves Luna Lovegood, and that is because she’s an oddball, a fact that resonates with guess what? A lot of introverted bibliophiles! In a fantasy universe rife with magic, Luna is considered quirky, imagine that! We all remember the words she was introduced within the movie “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”, “Don’t worry, you are just as weird as I am.” The words explain Luna’s character in a nutshell – that she knows how she is perceived as weird, but that she doesn’t judge anyone differently.
Considering the huge popularity of Harry Potter worldwide, which resulted in generating sales of more than 500 million copies in books and movie adaptations that grossed millions more at the box office, it is no surprise that Luna became a poster girl for misfits, who are unbothered and in fact, happy with their individuality and don’t shy away from being their authentic selves, even if it earns them the tag of an eccentric.
Luna didn’t let any of her quirks make her self-conscious. She comes across as intelligent, empathetic and unusually perceptive as seen when she figured out that Ravenclaw Tower’s ghost was the only one who might know about the whereabouts of the Diadem, or when she comforted Hermione during Christmas in the fifth year, when Ron made fun of her in Transfiguration class, or when she pointed out the marked differences in measures taken to find Sirius Black, after his escape from Azkaban, in comparison to those taken to find Bellatrix Lestrange and a dozen more Death-Eaters after their escape from the same. She was truly a Ravenclaw where “those of wit and learning will always find their kind”.
Luna’s mother was keen on experiments, and during one such magical experiment, her mother, unfortunately, died. Thereafter, Luna was brought up by her father and was able to see Thestrals (the otherwise invisible skeletal horses who dragged carriages at Hogwarts) from her first day. She befriended Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger in her fourth year and has been a dedicated companion to the Golden Trio ever since.
Luna was one of the few who believed Harry when he proclaimed that Voldemort was back and eagerly accepted the invitation to join Dumbledore’s Army when Harry offered. She fought in the Battle at the Department of Mysteries, alongside the Golden Trio, Neville and Ginny, against twelve Death-Eaters, before being rescued by the Order of the Phoenix. In the fifth year, Harry invited her to go along with him to Horace Slughorn’s Christmas Party, because he genuinely appreciated her friendship. During the sixth year, she attended Bill Weasley’s and Fleur Delacour’s wedding before the Second Wizarding War began.
When the Ministry fell to the hands of Lord Voldemort and the Golden Trio were running for their lives, Luna was captured by Snatchers as bait for Harry and was used to lure Harry to the Malfoy Manor. All of them were ultimately saved by Dobby, who paid for this generous act with his life. After that, Luna went back to school and fought her part in the Second Wizarding War from Hogwarts. She was instrumental in helping Harry find Ravenclaw’s lost diadem, which also doubled up as one of Voldemort’s Horcrux, and destroying it. After completing school, Luna went on to become a famous wizarding naturalist.
