The Lovegoods lived near Ottery St. Catchpole in Devon, England, close to Weasley and Diggory families. They were regarded as unusual by other wizarding families. Xenophilius Lovegood was an editor of The Quibbler. It is unknown if they were pure-blood, Luna and possibly her father belonged to Ravenclaw. Mrs Lovegood died in an accident when she was experimenting with potions in 1990. Later on, Luna became a naturalist and married Rolf Scamander and had two children, Lorcan and Lysander.
