In the novels, Harry is the only child of James and Lily Potter, orphaned as an infant. Rowling made Harry an orphan from the early drafts of her first book. She felt an orphan would be the most interesting character to write about. However, after her mother's death, Rowling wrote Harry as a child longing to see his dead parents again, incorporating her own anguish into him.
Harry's aunt and uncle kept the truth about his parents' deaths from Harry, telling him that they had died in a car crash. James Potter is a descendant of Ignotus Peverell, the third of the three original owners of the Deathly Hallows, and thus so is Harry, a realisation he makes during the course of the final book. Through his marriage to Ginny Weasley (a pure-blood), Harry links to the House of Black and they have three children. The eldest is James Sirius Potter, followed by Albus Severus Potter and Lily Luna Potter and Harry's children continue the lineage of Ignotus Peverell. Also, due to Hermione marrying Ron, they are now brother and sister in-law.
