He was the eldest child of Harry and Ginny Potter. His godparents were his uncle and aunt Ron and Hermione Weasley. He has two younger siblings: Albus and Lily. James was named after his paternal grandfather, James Potter, and his father's godfather, Sirius Black.
James was seen going to Hogwarts on 1 September, 2017 with his brother Albus, who was just starting his first year. James, being the oldest child, had already been attending Hogwarts, he started Hogwarts in September 2015. Contemporaries at school include his cousins Victoire and Rose, as well as Draco Malfoy's son Scorpius, though they are in different years.
When his family was gathered to see him and his brother off at King's Cross Station on 1 September, 2017, James interrupted his cousin Victoire snogging Teddy Lupin, and then ran off to tell his family and other relatives. He was disappointed when they did not react strongly.
In 2017, James also stole the Marauder's Map from his father's desk drawer.
By the Epilogue, James was 13 years old, meaning, he was in his third year of Hogwarts.
First year EditJames Potter was in the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry Hogwarts in 2015 and was selected to be in Gryffindor. This year he made friends with Ralph Dolohov and Jason Jordan, and also managed to join the group of pranksters and criminals who prowl the night of Hogwarts called Gremlins. James also tried to be chosen for the Gryffindor Quidditch team, but failed to do what Ethan Humberstone called "the flight lunatic and suicidal on the broom."
Second year EditDuring the beginning of his second year, James had been concerned with the selection of his younger brother, Albus. He was angry when his younger brother was sorted into Slytherin, but after talking to Albus, he decided it was best not to disrupt more and accept the facts. During Christmas 2017 he received a letter from his parents reporting that they knew that it was he who stole the Marauder's Map, but there were no consequences since it was an important holiday and his parents had presented Albus with a new broomstick. Later James was part of the M Squad, in which aimed to spread chaos through Hogwarts.
