But Snape didn't have time to get too deeply into that. Later in the year, Dumbledore revealed that Harry was in fact a Horcrux, meaning that he would eventually have to die. Now, as firmly established, Snape was not the greatest fan of Harry, but that didn't mean that he ever stopped loving Lily.
Although Snape may not have projected his memory of James onto Harry, he still would have been predisposed to dislike him by virtue of him being James Potter's son. Harry being in Slytherin would not have changed this fact.
"The first thing Snape asks Harry is "Potter! What would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?"

Snape also showed some care for his student, as when someone called Hermione a "mudblood", he demanded that the word not be used. Through it all, Hermione seems to care for Severus or at least show him empathy - as she was shocked and cried when he died - despite not knowing at that moment that he was on their side.
Draco Malfoy's mother Narcissa was cold, cunning and devoted to the Dark Lord. But she was also a mother, which meant she was willing to risk everything to make sure her son was safe. When Harry survived Voldemort's Killing Curse for the second time, Narcissa pretended he was dead so she could get to Draco.
As Rowling explained in a series of tweets, Snape loved Harry's mother, Lily, and his unrequited affection drove him to resent Harry's father, James — and by extension, Harry himself.

Voldemort intentionally made six Horcruxes, but when he used Avada Kedavra on Harry, he unintentionally created a seventh Horcrux. Instead of dying, Lily's love for Harry created a counter 'curse' known as Sacrificial Protection and saved Harry.
In order to preserve his position as a trusted Death Eater, Severus Snape was forced to tell Voldemort the true date at which the Order planned to move Harry.

Voldemort knew he couldn't cast Avada Kedavra with the Elder Wand to kill its master, so he ordered Nagini to be the one who killed Snape. In reality, the Elder Wand belonged to Draco, as he was the one to disarm Dumbledore in the Astronomy Tower.
However, the prophecy went on to say that Voldemort would mark the child as his equal, choosing the boy that he believed would be the most dangerous to him. Dumbledore believes Voldemort chose Harry because Harry was a half-blood, just like Voldemort.
