Hermione Granger is a Hogwarts student in Harry's year and his closest friend.

Hermione is sorted into Ravenclaw. She is very bright and performs much better than her fellow students in most classes.[1] She also reads very fast[2] and can memorize entire books. She has some knowledge of muggle science but little training in the methods of rationality.


In the autumn 1991, Hermione becomes the General of one of Professor Quirrell's armies, an inter-house after-school activity. She names her army the Sunshine Regiment and leads it in the three-way battles against the other first-year armies that are Harry's Chaos Legion and Draco Malfoy's Dragon Army.

In the winter, Hermione creates the Society for the Promotion of Heroic Equality for Witches (S.P.H.E.W.). She recruits seven other first-year witches of all four houses; together they fight bullies in the corridors of Hogwarts. The fights escalate until S.P.H.E.W. is forcibly disbanded by the Hogwarts staff.

In April, Hermione is accused of attempting to murder Draco Malfoy, and arrested. Lucius Malfoy asks before the Wizengamot (canon) that she be sent to Azkaban. She then agrees to swear service to the House of Potter so that Harry becomes indebted to House Malfoy instead. Lucius will later agree that she was likely framed and cancel the debt.

On April 16, Hermione is attacked by a mountain troll in Hogwarts. Harry and Fred and George Weasley come help her. They fight and kill the troll but Hermione dies of her injuries.[3] Harry then cools down her body and afterwards steals it from the infirmary and transfigures it into an object in the hope of being later able to bring her back to life.[4]

When Tom Riddle / Voldemort reveals himself, he admits to framing Hermione and then setting the troll on her. He regrets this as upon her clinical death he heard Trelawney's prophecy about Harry ending the world. Voldemort and Harry revive Hermione using a dark ritual and the Philosopher's Stone to repair her body and the True Patronus charm to spark her back to life. Voldemort then gives her the self-healing powers of a mountain troll and a unicorn (canon) and makes her a horcrux (canon) out of Roger Bacon’s diary.

Physical appearance and health

Hermione has chestnut hair and prominent front teeth.

After being given the powers of a mountain troll and a unicorn, her nails and teeth turn into alicorn (unicorn's horn) and she is said to "radiate an aura of purity and innocence".


Hermione is a muggleborn. Her parents Leo and Roberta are both dentists. They know Hermione is smart but they don't realize how much; however Hermione doesn't mind.[5]

Roberta's mother was a witch who may have died in Grindelwald’s (canon) war. Roberta never knew her.

After Hermione's apparent victory over Voldemort in June 1992, she is said to have avenged the Noble and Most Ancient House of Monroe and the Granger family is made a Noble House of Magical Britain.

Relationship with Harry Potter

Hermione and Harry meet on their first trip on the Hogwarts Express (canon) after someone[6] tells Harry to look for her.

They quickly develop a friendly rivalry over school achievements. After classes, Hermione helps Harry to scientifically investigate magic by performing charms and transfiguration (canon) experiments.

At the end of the story, she swears her never-ending friendship to Harry Potter.

Patronus event

Hermione and Harry both fail to cast a Patronus in Defense class. In January 1992, when they first try on a real dementor, Harry is exposed to it for too long which leaves him in an "demented" mental state in which Fawkes's singing cannot reach him. Hermione gets him out of it by kissing him on the lips. Afterwards Harry invents the True Patronus; he refuses to explain it to Dumbledore and Quirrell but gives the secret to Hermione in a cryptical form.
