Lily J Potter (née Evans) was a muggle born witch born on 30th January, 1960. She was the younger sister of Petunia Dursley.
Lily Potter was originally created by J. K. Rowling for the first book of her Harry Potter series 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's stone' .
Before Sorcerer's Stone
Lily learned that she was a witch as a child, after Severus Snape(a wizard boy who lived nearby) recognised her as such and told her of the existence of magic. Lily attended Hogwarts from 1971-1978. She was Sorted into Gryffindor and was a member of the Slug club . Lily met James Potter in gryffindor and disliked him for being arrogant and making fun of her friend Snape. Later in her fifth year after Snape called her a mud blood, she broke her friendship with him. In her seventh year Lily was made head girl and began dating James.
After Hogwarts she married James and had a son with him, Harry Potter, of whom she made Sirius Black the godfather. The couple, along with their friends Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew joined the Order of the Phoenix during the First Wizarding War. Later, Lily and James were forced to go into hiding after a prophecy was made concerning Lord Voldemort and their infant son. She and James were betrayed by Pettigrew, and thus both were murdered by Voldemort , while trying to protect their son. It was her sacrifice that kept Harry safe from Voldemort.

Powes and Abilities
Since even Lord Voldemort was willing to overlook Lily's blood status and asked her to join him, it can be deduced that she was a tremendously powerful witch. According to Horace Slughorn, she was excellent at potions and had an instinctual understanding of the subject. She was capable of producing a doe patronus. It can be deduced that she was an excellent duellist as she was able to defy Voldemort three times and survive the first Wizarding War.
