When they were younger, Ginny had a crush on Harry since she met him at Platform 9 and three quarters. She eventually admits to loving him in Tom Riddle's diary. Though no romandic feelings emerged at this point, Harry was in absolute horror when he saw Ginny unconscious on the floor of the chamber of Secrets and ran to his future wife's side, begging her to wake up, as this day would be considered by Harry the worse days ever.

Subsequently, Harry and Ginny's relationship remained rather platonic but Ginny still had feelings for Harry. However, she attempted to move on from Harry to other men, especially after Harry began dating Cho. After breaking up with her, Harry realized he had romantic feelings for Ginny. They begin dating in The Half-Blood Prince but Harry broke up with Ginny because he was afraid Voldemort would harm his girlfriend to get to him. (In the films, they remain boyfriend and girlfriend.)

It is revealed in the epilogue in The Deathly Hallows, Harry and Ginny are husband and wife and both are happily married. They have three lovely children:two sons and one daughter.

Family

Harry is related to various families within the Wizarding Worlds: the Peverells, the Evans, the Dursleys, and the Weasleys, his in-laws. He is a descendant of Ignotus Peverell and a distant nephew of Antioch and Cadmus Peverell. Harry's four grandparents included Mr and Mrs Evans, Euphemia and Fleamont Potter and has a great-grandfather, named Henry (who is Harry's possible namesake, as his great-grandfather was nicknamed Harry by his friends and family). the son of James and Lily Potter, the husband of Ginny Weasley, and father of James, Albus and Lily Potter.

Lily and James Potter

Harry sees his parents in the Mirror of Erised.

Harry thought highly of his parents and loved them dearly even though he rarely knew them. Lily and James sacrificed themselves for their son. Lily's love sacrifice helped protect Harry from Voldemort's dark magic, even rebounding a killing curse. Whenever Snape insulted Harry's father, he came immediately into James' defense. Later, his "aunt," Marge called James a drunk and Lily a bitch, which caused Harry to inadvertently blew her up into a balloon.

Later, when viewing Snape's memories, Harry was surprised that his father was indeed responsible for bullying Snape in their younger years. They appeared to him twice: once when they distracted Voldemort so Harry could escape. THe second time was when he left to confront Voldemort, Harry's parents were one of the important figures who approached him.

Harry avenged his parents' deaths when finally defeating Voldemort in 1997 during their final duel.

As an adult, Harry was distressed in having to watch Voldemort kill his parents when Harry defeated him as a baby and his son, Albus comforted him as the event happened.

When it came to their safety in 1997, Harry had them hidden for their own protection, showing he wanted nothing bad happening to him. It is unknown if he ever reconciled with them like his cousin.

In their adulthood, they remained in touch with each other and they were on Christmas card terms, showing that they had indeed changed.

Hedwig was Harry's beloved pet Snowy owl that Hagrid bought Harry for his eleventh birthday, from Eeylops Owl Emporium in Diagon Alley. Hedwig was often Harry's only companion during the lonely holidays he spent with the Dursleys, and the bond that developed between them was a close one. Hedwig was usually very affectionate with Harry, which she showed by gently nibbling his ear or fingers. However, she was not above snubbing him out of jealousy or nipping him a bit harder than usual on the rare occasions he snapped at her.

Hedwig was also highly intelligent; she understood perfectly when Harry asked her to peck Ron and Hermione until they responded to him, and even flew, completely of her own accord, to where Hermione was on holiday in France, to ensure that Harry received a gift for his thirteenth birthday.

They both spoke highly of one another. When Romilda insulted both Neville and Luna, Harry said they were his real friends because they helped fight.

Neville once revealed to Harry what happened to his parents, a secret he likely never told anyone else. Upon being reunited in The Deathly Hallows, Neville warmly welcomed Harry, Ron and Hermione back. During the battle of Hogwarts, Harry told Neville how to defeat Voldemort by killing Nagini, the last remaining Horcrux anad rendering their enemy mortal once more.

Luna Lovegood

―Harry's regards of Dumbledore during his argument with Tom Riddle

Dumbledore and Harry thought of reach other in the highest regards and each had highly respect for another.

During The Chamber of Secrets, Harry showed extreme loyalty to Dumbledore, calling him the greatest sorcerer in the world. This loyalty was enough to call Fawkes who appears to those who show extreme loyalty to those who return the favor to Dumbledore.

Rubeus Hagrid

Seamus Finnigan and Dean Thomas

Harry was also good friends with his roommates, Seamus Finnigan and Dean Thomas. However, his relationship with Seamus was briefly strained during their fifth year, when Seamus didn't believe that Voldemort returned. However, Seamus began believing Harry when the Azkaban break-out happened in 1995 and apologized to him for doubting Harry's claims that Voldemort returned.

The two boys remained loyal to Harry during the Battle of Hogwarts, and were happy to see Harry, Ron and Hermione again when they returned in 1998.

Minerva McGonagall

Bellatrix Lestrange

"SHE KILLED SIRIUS! SHE KILLED HIM — I'LL KILL HER
―Harry in regards of his hatred for Bellatrix

Eventually, Bellatrix would be killed by Molly Weasley, finally avenging the death of her son, Fred, and, to an extent, Sirius and Tonks.


Dolores Umbridge

Umbridge has been an enemy of Harry ever since she sent the Dementors to attack him and his cousin so Harry would be expelled from Hogwarts. He strongly dislikes her, almost at a similar level to Dolores Umbridge. She also mocked him for the return of Voldemort, especially after Cedric was murdered by him.

After learning she still had a job at the Ministry of Magic, Harry was still upset that she was able to get away with her crimes. He also took great pleasure in knocking her out with his magic. Umbridge would see justice when she was imprisoned for her crimes against Muggle-borns.
