Hermione Jean Granger (b. September 1, 1979) is a fictional character and the tritagonist of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. She first appears in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, as a new student on her way to Hogwarts. After Harry and Ron save her from a mountain troll in the girls' toilets, she becomes best friends with them and often uses her quick wit, deft recall, and encyclopaedic knowledge to help them. Rowling has stated that Hermione resembles herself at a younger age, with her insecurity and fear of failure.



Personality and traits

Hermione is considered to be the "brightest witch of her age". She is very logical, allowing her to go past lengthy details and go right for the point. While she might seem pompous, arrogant, and bossy now and then, she is actually good-hearted.

Physical appearance

Hermione Granger is a slender young woman with fair skin, long shoulder-length curly brown hair, and brown eyes.

During her years at Hogwarts, she is always seen in her grey sweatshirt with red and gold trimming and a white shirt underneath, black robe with the Gryffindor symbol on it, black skirt, grey knee-length socks, and black Mary Jane shoes. She sometimes wears a headband in her hair.

Magical abilities and skills

Hermione is very talented and skilled with magic, owing to her intelligence; in fact, her skills are superior to Harry and Ron’s. She can better control and utilize magic at will. In some cases, Hermione acts like an arrogant show-off with her abilities.




Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

In her first year at Hogwarts, Harry, Ron, and Hermione first meet on the Hogwarts Express. All 3 of them are sorted into Gryffindor (the Sorting Hat initially considered putting Hermione in Ravenclaw). At first, Harry and Ron don't really like Hermione at all, and view her as a bossy nerd and a pompous, arrogant, and insufferable know-it-all. When they defend her from a mountain troll in the girls' bathroom (where she spent the afternoon after Ron hurt her feelings), she takes the blame for them. From then on, they become friends. During a Quidditch match between Gryffindor and Slytherin, Harry's brand new Nimbus 2000 suddenly goes out of control. Hermione quickly and mistakenly assumes that Severus Snape is jinxing the broom, not realizing Snape is trying to help Harry and it's really Quirnus Quirrell who's trying to cause Harry to fall off his broom, and goes to set his robes on fire, causing Snape to knock Quirrell over.
