Discovered in Book3, Chapter 6, Talons and Tea Leaves

"Lavender is a Gryffindor student. She attends Divination with the other Gryffindors, and believes strongly in the predictions of Professor Trelawney. After Lavender passes Trelawney a teapot, she is warned that the thing she is dreading will happen on Friday the sixteenth of October. Although initially unaware of its meaning, Lavender is convinced by Trelawney's vision of the Grim in Harry's cup, and remains worried after the class."

Discovered in Book3, Chapter 7, The Boggart in the Wardrobe

"Lavender is crying outside the Transfiguration classroom, having just found out that her pet rabbit Binky has been killed by a fox.

She is more upset when Hermione points out the inconsistencies in Trelawney's prediction."

Discovered in Book 4, Chapter 13, Mad-Eye Moody

"Lavender joins her fellow Gryffindor students for their Care of Magical Creatures lesson with Hagrid. She is not impressed by the Blast-Ended Skrewts they have to tend to, and quickly withdraws her hand from the crate holding them when Hagrid informs her that some of the creatures have stings. Lavender enjoys the Divination lesson with Professor Trelawney, and at one point excitedly tells the professor she thinks she has found an unaspected planet."

Discovered in Book 4, Chapter 14, The Unforgivable Curses

"Lavender is placed under the Imperius Curse by Professor Moody during her Defence Against the Dark Arts lesson. She imitates a squirrel under the influence of the curse."
