Emma Watson as Hermione Granger

Hermione Jean Granger, born 19 September 1979, was the daughter of Muggles Mr and Mrs Granger who are both dentists. She learned, at the age of eleven, that she was a witch and had been accepted into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Hermione was sorted into Gryffindor house.

Academically brilliant, Hermione quickly became known as the 'brightest witch of her age'. She made friends with Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley during her first year (who originally thought she was obnoxious and a "know-it-all") when a troll attacked her in the Girl's Bathroom. This friendship continued into the second year, when Hermione became the victim of a basilisk released from the Chamber of Secrets and was petrified. During her third year, Hermione was given a time turner to fit in all the lessons she was taking, this later became instrumental in savingSirius Black and Buckbeak the hippogriff from their deaths. She held a key role in Harry's success during the Triwizard Tournament and advocated the welfare of House elf setting up "S.P.E.W" or Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare, in her fourth year. In 1995, she was the driving force behind the creation of Dumbledore's Army, and fought in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries in 1996, and in the Battle of the Astronomy Tower and the Battle over Little Whinging in 1997. She joined best-friends Harry and Ron in the quest to find Lord Voldemort's horcruxes, later participating in the Battle of Hogwarts in which she destroyed the Hufflepuff cup horcrux.

Hermione eventually returned to her education at Hogwarts, completing her seventh year. She later entered employment in the Ministry of Magic, furthering her cause for the better treatment of house-elves before gaining promotion to the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. She eventually married Ron, and they have two children.

Early Life

Hermione grew up with her dentist parents in the muggle world, oblivious to the existence of the Wizarding community. She always wanted her front teeth shortened but they refused to allow it. She found out aged eleven that she was a witch and, after getting her school supplies, began to study magic and attempt a few basic spells.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

"I hope you're pleased with yourselves. We could have all been killed - or worse, expelled."
Hermione Granger[src]

Hermione arrived at hogwarts with Susan Bones and Neville Longbottom on the Hogwarts Express and was sorted into Gryffindor house (though she later stated that the sorting hat strongly considered Ravenclaw). At first Hermione was very unpopular with her classmates who thought her snobbish and rude. However, after being attacked by a troll due to harsh comments from Ronald Weasley, Hermione befriended fellow Gryffindors Ronald Weasley and Harry Potter. Soon after, the trio became suspicious of Professor Severus Snape following a series of attacks on Harry Potter. They then realised that whoever was attacking Harry was after the Philosopher's Stone which would grant immortal life to whoever drank its elixir. The trio then go through a series of obstacles (including a three-headed dog, devil's snare, a giant 'wizard's chessboard' and a set of potions. Harry then goes on to save the philosopher's stone and thwart proffessor Quirinus Quirrel (who was really behind the plot alongside Lord Voldemort). Hermione was later given fifty housepoints for her use of "cool logic," helping Gryffindor to win the House Cup.

Characterization

Name

Author J.K. Rowling chose the name "Hermione" from Shakespeare's "A Winter's Tale", however J.K Rowling has said that the Shakespearean Hermione and the Harry Potter Hermione have very little in common. Rowling needed an unusual name to match Hermione's clever and swotty behavior. There was much disparaging concerning Hermione's name with various wrong attempts at its pronunciation. The correct pronunciation being: Her-MY-oh-knee.


Outward Appearance

Hermione is said to have had bushy brown hair and brown eyes. She also had rather large front teeth, which she ended up magically shrinking in her fourth year at Hogwarts after being hit by a hex by Draco Malfoy. She had a bossy voice that often became shrill when she was annoyed or angered.

Hermione's physical appearance is never particularly focused on until book four when Hermione attends the Yule Ball with Viktor Krum. Her hair is sleek and shiny and placed in an elegant hairstyle and she wears a floaty periwinkle dress. Hermione receives compliments from her classmates, including Parvati Patil. This is the first time that she seems to have gained the attention of both Ronald Weasley and Harry Potter not just for her intelligence or personality but also for her physical appearance.
