She possessed a brilliant academic mind and proved to be a gifted student in almost every subject that she studied.
   
Hermione first met [[Harry Potter]] and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] aboard the [[Hogwarts Express]], who found her unfriendly and somewhat of an "insufferable know-it-all", an impression reinforced for her constant correct answers and eagerness to please the professors. However, she stepped in to take the blame from the boys after they had saved her from a [[troll]] on [[Hallowe'en]] in 1991, surprising them in a grateful way and quickly becoming friends. She later played a crucial role in protecting the [[Philosopher's Stone]] from [[Tom Riddle|Voldemort]]. In her second year, Hermione had a key role in the discovery of the [[Chamber of Secrets]], before falling victim to the [[Salazar Slytherin's basilisk|basilisk]] unleashed upon Hogwarts following the opening of the Chamber, but she recovered from the [[petrification]] under the care of [[Poppy Pomfrey|Madam Pomfrey]] with [[Pomona Sprout|Professor Sprout]]'s [[Mandrake Restorative Draught]]. The next year, Hermione was granted permission to use a [[Time-Turner]] from the Ministry of Magic to facilitate her volition to study far more subjects than was possible without time travel, though she and Harry later used it to rescue [[Sirius Black]] from the [[Dementor's Kiss]] and [[Buckbeak]] the [[hippogriff]] from execution. During her fourth year, Hermione became an advocate for the better treatment of [[house-elves]], forming the association [[Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare|S.P.E.W.]], and helped in Harry's preparation for the [[Triwizard Tournament]]. In her fifth year, Hermione was the driving force behind the creation of [[Dumbledore's Army]] and fought alongside fellow D.A. members in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]]. In her sixth year, Hermione continued her role as [[Prefect]] and fought in the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]].

Hermione played a significant role in many other battles of the [[Second Wizarding War]], as well. In 1997, she fought in the [[Battle of the Seven Potters]], alongside the [[Order of the Phoenix]]. Hermione and Ron decided not to return to Hogwarts for their final year of studies, instead choosing to accompany Harry on his quest to find and destroy Lord Voldemort's [[Horcrux-making spell|Horcruxes]], a quest in which her several of her actions were essential. She destroyed [[Hufflepuff's Cup]], a Horcrux, with Ron using a basilisk fang found in the Chamber of Secrets. Hermione then fought in the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], helping in the defeat of the [[Death Eaters|Death Eater]] who tortured her, [[Bellatrix Lestrange]].

Following the [[Second Wizarding War]], Hermione went back to Hogwarts to complete her education.

Afterward, she was promoted to the [[Department of Magical Law Enforcement]], dedicating to eradicate old laws biassed in favour of [[pure-blood]]s.

Upon turning eleven, Hermione was happily surprised to learn that she was a [[Wizardkind|witch]] and was therefore invited to attend [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]]. She eagerly accepted and took to studying magic even before she began her first year at Hogwarts in the [[September]] of 1991, learning all the set spellbooks by heart and even managing to [[underage magic|perform]] "a few spells" successfully.

It is likely that the Sorting Hat ultimately put her in Gryffindor because Hermione chose to be in it, just like Harry chose to not be in Slytherin. On the train she states that, "''Gryffindor... sounds by far the best.''" She proved her rightful place in Gryffindor with her steadfast bravery and loyalty to her friends, [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], and [[Dumbledore's Army]]. After being Sorted into Gryffindor, Hermione shared a dormitory with [[Lavender Brown]], [[Parvati Patil]], and two other girls.<ref name="OOTP">{{OOTP}}</ref>

In spite of always wanting to follow the school rules, after Hermione became friends with Harry and Ron, she would disobey the rules along with them in order to successfully complete their group affairs. For example, she went with Ron and Harry into the third floor corridor in first year, which students were temporarily forbidden from entering, in order to save the Philosopher's Stone; she assisted in creating the Polyjuice Potion in their second year; and although Harry was the one who taught Dumbledore's Army in their fifth year, she was the one who came up with the idea.

Hermione demonstrated knowledge and talent with [[magic]] beyond most of those her age, despite having only recently discovered that she was a witch.

Hermione soon proved to be the best in all her classes, eager to please the professors and to help others learn, albeit in a bossy way that made it difficult for her to make friends. Although she was a know-it-all, Hermione did often help Neville Longbottom, who struggled in most classes other than [[Herbology]].

Hermione strictly followed all school rules and tried to prevent other students from breaking rules and getting into trouble. On one night, she followed Harry and Ron as they were leaving Gryffindor Tower to [[Duelling|duel]] [[Draco Malfoy]]. They were chased by [[Argus Filch]], acting on a tipoff by Malfoy, into the third-floor corridor — forbidden to students — where they came face-to-face with [[Fluffy]], a three-headed dog belonging to [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]]. Later on, she argued that her spying was to their benefit when she pointed out the dog had been standing on a trapdoor, which neither Harry nor Ron had noticed.

The friendship between Harry, Ron and Hermione was solidified when, on [[31 October|Hallowe'en]] in [[1991]], the three were forced to confront [[Quirinus Quirrell's first mountain troll|a mountain troll]], which had been secretly let into the school by Professor [[Quirinus Quirrell]].

The incident with the troll was by no means her only adventure in that first year. During the first [[Quidditch]] match, Hermione set [[Severus Snape|Professor Snape]]'s robes on [[Bluebell Flames|fire]] when she thought he was [[jinx]]ing Harry's broom. In the spring of [[1992]], [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]], now a friend of Hermione's through Harry, managed to procure a dragon egg, the unlicensed possession of which was illegal. The three children secretly helped Hagrid care for the beast, which he'd named [[Norberta|Norbert]]. When the dragon was discovered, she and Harry smuggled it out of the school to some friends of Ron's elder brother, [[Charles Weasley|Charlie Weasley]], who worked as a dragon-tamer. On their way back to the dormitories they were caught by [[Argus Filch]], who escorted them to Professor Minerva McGonagall. Along with Neville and Draco, they received detention and had 50 points deducted each from their respective houses.

On their way back to the dormitories they were caught by [[Argus Filch]], who escorted them to Professor Minerva McGonagall. Along with Neville and Draco, they received detention and had 50 points deducted each from their respective houses.<ref name="PS"/>
   
After their run-in with Fluffy, Harry deduced that whatever Hagrid had retrieved from [[Gringotts Wizarding Bank|Gringotts]] was beneath the trapdoor. Hagrid let it slip that ''"... What's under that trapdoor is strictly between [[Albus Dumbledore|Dumbledore]] and [[Nicolas Flamel|Nicholas Flamel]]"''. After much research turned up nothing, Harry was given a Dumbledore [[Chocolate Frog Card]] by Neville, which mentions Dumbledore's work in [[Alchemy]] with Flamel. This led Hermione to look at a large book on Alchemy which she had borrowed from the [[Hogwarts Library|library]] for "''a bit of light reading''". After consulting the book, she realised that Fluffy was guarding the [[Philosopher's Stone]].

Fearing that [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] would return if he stole the stone, and believing that Snape was acting as a double agent and attempting to steal it, Harry decided to steal it first. When he told Hermione that he could go on alone, she rebuffed him. After the trio passed [[Fluffy]], it was Hermione who freed Ron from a patch of [[Devil's Snare]] he had dropped into by conjuring [[Bluebell Flames]]. She later got herself and Harry through a challenge involving a [[Philosopher's Stone|Potion Riddle]] in order to obtain the right potion between many of them. Hermione used her logic to figure out the riddle and let Harry go forward without her, as there was only enough potion for one person.

Hermione shocked everyone when she actually interrupted [[Cuthbert Binns|Professor Binns]] during a [[History of Magic]] class, asking about the Chamber of Secrets. This was the only known time when a student had asked the boring professor a question, and the class was interested in what he had to say. Professor Binns had stated that [[Salazar Slytherin]] had hidden a chamber which consisted of a horrible monster. It had been unleashed before once by an "[[Tom Riddle|Heir of Slytherin]]", petrifying many Muggle-born and had also killed a [[Ravenclaw]] girl, named [[Myrtle Warren]], who began haunting the girls' lavatory and became known as Moaning Myrtle. Slytherin, a pure-blood loyalist, was against Muggle-born children being allowed to attend Hogwarts, but he was outnumbered by the other founders and Muggle-borns like Hermione were permitted as students. Slytherin fled the school, but rumours spread that he had built a hidden chamber; it was said that the school had been searched many times, but no such chamber had been found.

When Harry proposed the theory that [[Draco Malfoy]] was the Heir of Slytherin, Hermione and Ron agreed. Hermione suggested that they brew Polyjuice Potion, and temporarily transform themselves into Slytherin students in an attempt to find out the truth. She went even further by daring to check ''[[Moste Potente Potions]]'' out of the library using a note from Professor Lockhart - who had no idea what the book was - in the desire to research the potion. The book was in the [[Restricted Section]] and therefore unavailable to younger students without permission from a teacher. She hoped that they would be able to obtain a viable confession from Malfoy, if he was unaware he was being interrogated. She brewed the potion in Moaning Myrtle's bathroom, as no one used it due to Myrtle herself being highly irritating. She also risked serious consequences when she stole potion ingredients from [[Severus Snape|Professor Snape]]'s [[Severus Snape's storeroom|personal cupboards]] that were needed for the difficult potion, which took a month to brew.

Unfortunately, Hermione was unable to join Harry and Ron in the ruse with Polyjuice Potion because the hair she obtained from Slytherin [[Millicent Bulstrode]] during their scuffle in the [[Duelling Club]] was actually the hair of Bulstrode's cat. Hermione grew fur and a tail, and remained in the [[Hospital Wing]] for weeks as she did not transform back when the normal duration of effectiveness - one hour - was up. Harry and Ron, however, were able to use the potion she brewed to transform into [[Gregory Goyle]] and [[Vincent Crabbe]], respectively.

Just before she began the 1993-1994 school year, while visiting [[Diagon Alley]] with Harry and the [[Weasley family]], Hermione met and adopted a ginger part-[[Kneazle]] cat named [[Crookshanks]] from the [[Diagon Alley|Magical Menagerie]]. However, her new bond with her cat caused friction with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] and his pet rat [[Peter Pettigrew|Scabbers]], as Crookshanks was always trying to catch the rat. Also at the beginning of this school year, Hermione obtained a [[Time-Turner]] from Professor McGonagall so she could double up on classes, though this was kept secret from everyone, even Harry and Ron.

When Harry received a [[Harry Potter's Firebolt|Firebolt]] for Christmas with no note, Hermione reported it to Professor McGonagall, thinking it was sent by [[Sirius Black]], whom everyone believed to be a dangerous murderer who was after Harry. His broom was taken away to be inspected, which caused a temporary rift between the two friends. There was further social strain for Hermione when Ron accused Crookshanks of eating Scabbers, who had disappeared.

Hermione poured herself into defending [[Buckbeak]], the [[hippogriff]] on trial before the [[Committee for the Disposal of Dangerous Creatures]] for attacking [[Draco Malfoy]] during a [[Care of Magical Creatures]] class. Once the trio reconciled, after Hagrid told Harry and Ron how disappointed he was when they selfishly put the Firebolt and Scabbers over their friendship with Hermione, they apologised. Their attempt to save Buckbeak failed, as [[Lucius Malfoy]] frightened the Committee into deciding that the creature would be executed. Hermione was extremely upset by this news and grew furious to the point of slapping Draco Malfoy when he dared to mock Hagrid for his tears and being upset over Buckbeak's fate.

On the day of Buckbeak's execution, the trio ventured down to console Hagrid. While in his cabin, Hermione discovered [[Peter Pettigrew|Scabbers]], Ron's lost rat. Hagrid urged them to leave and they witnessed from a distance what they believed to be Buckbeak's execution. Before they could return to their dormitory, Scabbers bit Ron and fled. While chasing after the rat, they were attacked by a [[Sirius Black|black dog]], which pulled Ron by the leg into a tunnel beneath the [[Whomping Willow]], which then attacked them.

Afterward, Hermione and Harry hurried after them eventually arriving in the [[Shrieking Shack]], where Sirius Black, whose [[Animagus]] form was the black dog, confronted them. They were soon joined by Professor Lupin who was acting strangely, and Hermione told Harry and Ron of her belief that he was a werewolf, which he then confirmed. It was revealed that Sirius had been framed for the betrayal of [[James Potter I|James]] and [[Lily L. Potter|Lily Potter]], and that the true traitor was Peter Pettigrew, who had been hiding from the world as Ron's pet rat. Hermione also cast ''[[Disarming Charm|Expelliarmus]]'' on Snape when he discovered them, knocking him out, at which she was horrified.

Once it had been decided that Pettigrew would be turned over to the authorities rather than murdered, the motley group left the Shrieking Shack. When the full moon appeared, chaos ensued as Lupin transformed into a werewolf as, due to the chaotic turn of events, he hadn't taken the [[Wolfsbane Potion|Wolfsbane]] potion that Professor Snape produced for him monthly in order for him to retain his humanity. In the chaos, Pettigrew attacked Ron and escaped, and Sirius had to transform into his dog form in order to protect Harry, Ron, and Hermione from the werewolf. Lupin was eventually distracted by a howl from the [[Forbidden Forest]]. Hermione and Harry rushed to Sirius' aid when they heard him moaning, but hundreds of [[Dementor]]s descended on them, come to recapture Sirius. Sirius quickly fainted, and Harry told Hermione to think of something happy and attempt to cast a [[Patronus Charm|patronus]] as he was trying to himself, but they were both unable to cast one. As Harry conjured an incorporeal Patronus, Hermione passed out, leaving Harry to fight the Dementors alone. Harry held them off for a while but was eventually overwhelmed. The Dementors were about to perform the [[Dementor's Kiss|Kiss]] on Harry, Hermione, and Sirius when a mysterious figure in the distance cast a very powerful [[Patronus Charm]] to repel the Dementors.

Hermione began a crusade for the liberation of [[house-elf|house-elves]] by beginning the [[Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare]], or what she and the group called S.P.E.W, (or, as [[Ronald Weasley]] called it, "spew") having been appalled by [[Bartemius Crouch Senior|Bartemius Crouch]]'s abusive treatment of his house-elf Winky.

Hermione helped Harry prepare for the first task of the Triwizard Tournament by helping him learn useful spells. Some of the spells were ''[[Stunning Spell|Stupefy]]'', ''[[Impediment Jinx|Impedimenta]]'', ''[[Summoning Charm|Accio,]] ''and the [[Four-Point Spell]]''. ''She also tried to get Harry and Ron to talk to one another multiple times.

[[Rita Skeeter]], a journalist for the ''Daily Prophet'' and unregistered [[Animagus]], was hiding in beetle form in Hermione's hair during this conversation. Hermione had previously reprimanded Skeeter for printing horrible lies about Harry and [[Rubeus Hagrid]]. This angered the journalist, who wrote a scathing article on "the devious Miss Granger", claiming that she was toying with both Harry and Krum's affections and that she had developed a taste for famous wizards. Skeeter even went so far to claim that Hermione was possibly brewing [[Love Potion|love potions]]. In the words of Ron, Skeeter was making Hermione out to be a "''Scarlet Woman''", a phrase which made Hermione laugh. She called Hermione "''plain''" in the article, inspite of previously reporting Hermione as Harry's "''stunningly pretty... girlfriend''" by likely twisting and sensationalising the words of [[Colin Creevey]] and thus using this as the basis for the article. Although Hermione found the lies ridiculous, some people believed them and started sending Hermione hate mail, including one filled with [[Bubotuber Pus]], and even [[Molly Weasley]] treated her coldly until Harry corrected her. Hermione vowed to get revenge on Skeeter for her libel, and wondered how she was getting her information, as several things Skeeter knew had only been discussed in private conversations. This led her to come to the realisation that Skeeter was an illegal unregistered [[Animagus]], who took the form of a beetle to secretly witness confidential exchanges.

The students were shocked when Harry returned at the end of the third and final task with Cedric Diggory's dead body. Hermione was relieved to see Harry when he was brought to the infirmary by Professor Dumbledore. She was upset with the Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, when he refused to believe Harry and Dumbledore about the truth of Voldemort's return. During her time with Harry in the Hospital Wing, she noticed Skeeter on a windowsill, attempting to eavesdrop, and captured her in the process. Hermione did not go against Harry's story when she finally heard it, sticking by her best friend.

Hermione dodged a [[Killing Curse]] and managed to stun Goyle, and then she and Ron dragged him out of the room on a broomstick as it went up in flames due to Crabbe's cursed [[Fiendfyre]], which also destroyed the Horcrux.

====Minister for Magic====
Sometime before [[2019]], Hermione became the new [[Minister for Magic]]. In the summer of [[2020]], Hermione had to visit Harry to ask him to complete his paperwork and the other tasks he was yet to do. She talked about her concerns for recent activity similar to ones which happened when Voldemort was alive. Harry reminded her that he did just find a [[Time-Turner]] and he would get round to the rest of the tasks in his own time. They agreed that the Time-Turner should be destroyed and Hermione hid it away.

Sometime before [[2019]], Hermione became the new [[Minister for Magic]]. Given elections generally occur every seven years, and Shacklebolt was appointed in 1997, it is likely that his first election took place shortly thereafter. If Shacklebolt was elected in 1998 or 1999, subsequent seven-year terms would suggest Granger was first elected Minister in 2012–13 or 2019.

A few months later, Hermione was returning to her office when she was stopped by Ron, who was really [[Albus Potter]] transfigured to look like Ron. Albus was trying to stall her while [[Scorpius Malfoy]] and [[Delphini|Delphi]] stole the Time-Turner.

Hermione's life was changed by Albus and Scorpius when they meddled with time. In one [[alternate reality]], she did not marry Ron and became the [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] teacher at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]]. In another alternate reality where Harry died, Hermione was in hiding as a member of what remained of [[Dumbledore's Army]] with Ron and [[Severus Snape]]. When Scorpius turned up with information about the original timeline where they won, Hermione agreed to help put time right again by time-travelling to the moment Scorpius changed time and use a [[Shield Charm]] to stop him. Hermione was the one to use the charm first, but when they returned to the present, it was still changed. They were attacked by Dementors and Hermione and Ron professed their love for each other and sacrificed their souls to the [[Dementor]]s to give Scorpius time to escape.

However, in [[1994]], [[Poppy Pomfrey|Madam Pomfrey]] magically [[tooth-shrinking spell|shrunk]] her front teeth after she was accidentally struck with a ''[[Densaugeo]]'' spell, and told Hermione to alert her when her teeth had returned to their original size.

She also used [[Sleekeazy's Hair Potion]] to fix her hair sleek, shiny and twisted up into an elegant knot at the back of her head, though she later remarked that it was too much work to use everyday.

*'''[[Duelling]]''': Hermione demonstrated her exemplary abilities in [[martial magic]] on numerous occasions, showing remarkable [[duelling]] skill for her age. She can magically manipulate objects around herself to incapacitate or evade others.<ref name="OOTPf" /> She had very fast reflexes when it came to wand work; for instance, she drew her wand and placed a [[Shield Charm]] between Harry and Ron when they were quarrelling before either of them could even draw their wands in [[1997]], and when the trio was spotted by Death Eaters during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], she was the first to react, sending them to safety.<ref name="DH" /> Her duelling style was creative and unpredictable, mixing non-combat spells along with more conventional combative spells to overcome her opponents.

*'''[[Duelling]]''': Hermione demonstrated her exemplary abilities in [[martial magic]] on numerous occasions, showing remarkable [[duelling]] skill for her age. She can magically manipulate objects around herself to incapacitate or evade others.<ref name="OOTPf" /> She had very fast reflexes when it came to wand work; for instance, she drew her wand and placed a [[Shield Charm]] between Harry and Ron when they were quarrelling before either of them could even draw their wands in [[1997]], and when the trio was spotted by Death Eaters during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], she was the first to react, sending them to safety.<ref name="DH" /> Her duelling style was creative and unpredictable, mixing non-combat spells along with more conventional combative spells to overcome her opponents. Although she was incapacitated relatively early in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]], Hermione removed two [[Death Eaters]] from the fight in that short time.<ref name="OOTP" /> By the time she accompanied Ron and Harry on the search for the Horcruxes, her spell-work was swifter than opponents such as [[Mundungus Fletcher]]: Hermione defeated [[Antonin Dolohov]] and [[Gregory Goyle]], [[Blasting Curse|blasted]] [[Nagini]] to defend Harry, repelled [[Corban Yaxley|Yaxley]] when he forcibly [[Apparition|Disapparated]] with her, blasted [[Fenrir Greyback]] away from an injured [[Lavender Brown]], and saved him and Ron from being apprehended by Death Eaters when the trio went to see [[Xenophilius Lovegood]]. She defeated many Death Eaters during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]] and held her own against [[Bellatrix Lestrange]] with the assistance of [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]] and [[Luna Lovegood]].

* '''[[Charm]]s''': Hermione was exceptionally talented with charm-work and some of her most impressive magical feats were charms. She not only achieved an '[[Outstanding]]' [[Ordinary Wizarding Level|O.W.L.]] but also received a hundred and twelve percent in her first year Charms exam.<ref name="PS"/> Hermoine enchanted her [[Hermione Granger's handbag|small handbag]] with an [[Extension Charm|Undetectable Extension Charm]] to allow her to carry more items in the bag than physically allowed, which allowed her, Harry and Ron to survive the months spent out in the open.

Her array of [[Protego totalum|protective charms]] she casted outside their defended her, Harry, and Ron for almost a year while they were searching for Voldemort's Horcruxes, while several far more experienced wizards were captured within months. Hermione's speciality was creating [[Bluebell Flames|portable, waterproof fires]]. In her first year, she kept these fires in a jar, used them to distract Severus Snape, whom she thought was jinxing Harry's broom during his first Quidditch match, and to attack the [[Devil's Snare]] when she, Harry, and Ron searched for the Philosopher's Stone. In her second year, she used her flames in Moaning Myrtle's bathroom to light the cauldron above one of the toilets while Polyjuice Potion was brewed so that Harry and Ron could interrogate Draco Malfoy about the Heir of Slytherin. During the [[Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potter's Horcrux Hunt|Horcrux hunt]], she kept the flames in a jar to keep the trio warm during winter. However, the one charm she had trouble with was the Patronus Charm, something Harry noted when she tried casting it when he, she and Ron infiltrated the Ministry of Magic, perhaps indicating she lacked the self-confidence. That said, she learned how to cast the corporeal Patronus Charm in her [[1995-1996 school year|fifth year]] and was the first to master the advanced spell in Dumbledore's Army under Harry's tutelage, hers taking the form of an otter.<ref name="OOTP" /> She mentioned in [[1997]] that she had been practising how to use her Patronus for messaging,<ref name="DH" /> but it is unknown if she ever actually carried this out.

Hermione earned an '[[Outstanding]]' in her [[Ordinary Wizarding Level|O.W.L.]] exam, learning to [[Vanishment|vanish]] objects, one of its hardest spells. In 1995, she was able to vanish Harry Potter's [[potion]] after believing him to be finished with it and a kitten by mid-year - the hardest vanishment challenge of all.

*'''[[Defence Against the Dark Arts]]''': Hermione was skilled in this subject as she was able to achieve an '[[Exceeds Expectations]]' in her O.W.L. In their first year, she mastered the [[Full Body-Bind Curse]]. In their third year when she took Professor Lupin's exam, Harry saw that she did everything perfectly except for the part of fighting the [[Boggart]]. Despite this aptitude, this was the one subject Harry was better than her at, something she freely acknowledged. Hermione mastered all the spells taught by Harry in their fifth year in Dumbledore's Army. She mastered the [[Stunning Spell]], [[Impediment Jinx]], and various other [[jinx]]es and [[hex]]es. She was capable of using powerful defensive and offensive spells such as the [[Blasting Curse]]. If Hermione had become an Auror she would have excelled, but she instead dedicated herself to rebuilding the wizard laws. Alongside this, in one alternative universe created by Scorpius and Albus' time-travelling experiences, she became the professor of Defence Against the Dark Arts.

*'''[[Dark Arts]]''': Hermione was not known for her ability to perform dark magic and the extent of her capacity is truly unknown, but it could be assumed given her borderline genius status that she was no slouch, as she was able to successfully cast various potent [[dark charm]]s. She was able to cast the [[Leg-Locker Curse]] in her first year, the [[Jelly-Legs Jinx]] in her sixth, and successfully cast a [[Stinging Jinx|Stinging Hex]] at a moment's notice. Hermoine had enough skill to come up with a very sophisticated [[jinx]] [[Dumbledore's Army parchment jinx|that would deform the face of a person who betrayed the D.A]]., which she taught to her comrades. She also cast the [[Oppugno Jinx]] to send several conjured canaries at Ron Weasley in [[1996]], to express her annoyance and anger at him for kissing Lavender Brown. Furthermore, she was able to cast a particularly powerful and destructive [[Blasting Curse]], which she used to blast Nagini with in Godric's Hollow in [[December]] [[1997]]; a cast so powerful that it broke Harry's [[Harry Potter's wand|wand]].

*'''[[Spell creation]]''' (possibly): Hermione was highly implied to have successfully created at least one spell, a jinx that she placed upon the list of Dumbledore's Army members which, if activated, would cause the affected person's face to break out in boils that formed the word "SNEAK" and which could not be reversed by any known counter-spell. She may also have invented the Four-Point Spell, a useful spell that would make the user's wand point north to indicate direction. If so, this further shows her remarkable and outstanding skill and magical talent, as spell creation is noted to be extremely dangerous and only to be attempted by the most skilled wizards.

*'''Leadership skills''': While Harry did the majority of leading among the trio, it was usually Hermione who kept him on track when he, Ron and herself had a task to do, and she sometimes did the same only with Ron. She also helped form and co-lead Dumbledore's Army alongside Harry. Her leadership skills were again demonstrated when she joined the Ministry, helping improve the rights of House Elves and other underprivileged magical creatures in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, and then getting promoted to Deputy Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, in which she helped eradicate the old laws which only favoured pure bloods. Despite not desiring high positions and only leading when she was forced to do so and when the time was right, she was eventually promoted to the post of Minister for Magic before 2019.

Hermione became friends with Harry Potter after they as well as [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] took down a [[Mountain Troll]] together in their first year.<ref name="PS" /> They tended to get along very well on a day-to-day basis, though Harry occasionally became annoyed by Hermione's nagging, while she occasionally became annoyed by his lack of discipline and conviction in his schoolwork. Their only notable row was over Hermione getting Harry's [[Firebolt]] confiscated in their third year, which she felt it might be a trap. Harry and Ron reconciled with Hermione after [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]] scolded them for their treatment of her. Harry and Hermione were quite similar in their dour, brooding tendencies in times of trouble, and often needed Ron's humour and levity to counterbalance their intense personalities.
+
[[File:Hermione_and_Rose.jpg|251x251px|thumb|Hermione hugging Rose before Rose departs for [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|school]]]]
   
Harry, Hermione, and Ron spent nearly all their time together during their years at Hogwarts, and shortly afterwards, Hermione led Harry through [[Time-Turner|time-travel]], and together they rescued [[Sirius Black]] and [[Buckbeak]]; Hermione breaking the rules of using her Time-Turner, something she admitted was incredibly dangerous, demonstrated the strength of her friendship with Harry.<ref name="POA" /> The [[1994|following year]], Hermione was the only student who believed Harry when he told her he had not put his name in the [[Goblet of Fire]], and spent much of the [[Triwizard Tournament]] teaching Harry useful spells and trying to reconcile him and Ron.<ref name="GOF" />
+
After the [[Second Wizarding War]], Hermione had two children with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]]: a daughter named [[Rose Granger-Weasley|Rose]] and a son named [[Hugo Granger-Weasley|Hugo]].
   
While Harry and Hermione typically argued less than Ron and Hermione, they had the most philosophical and moral disagreements with one another. Ron typically deferred to Harry's opinions on important decisions, and tends to hold back when Hermione confronts Harry about them, letting them battle it out. For example, Harry and Hermione fought about how best to deal with [[Dolores Umbridge]] when she infiltrated Hogwarts, whether or not Sirius's judgement could be trusted, whether or not Harry should have tried to use [[Occlumency]] to block out his mental link with Voldemort, whether Dumbledore's past made him an unworthy leader, and whether they should have pursued the Hallows or the Horcruxes. Hermione expressed immense displeasure to Harry during the sixth year after he started obtaining better results than her at Potion by the help of the "Half Blood Prince's potions book". Harry tended to be dismissive of Hermione's opinions, and could even grow angry when she tried to argue her point, but many times realised later that she was right. For example, Harry was often dismissive of Hermione's insistence that all [[house-elves]] deserve respect and kindness, and was neglectful towards [[Kreacher]] because of his bigotry until he finally realised the horrifying nature of his enslavement.
+
Rose started her first year at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]] in [[2017]], along with her cousin, [[Albus Potter|Albus]]. Ron stated that Rose had inherited her mother's brains. Hermione was probably very close to Rose because she was also described as smart, yet not a complete know-it-all.
   
[[File:Harry&Hermion poa.gif|240x240px|thumb|right|Hermione protecting Harry, her willingness to put his best interests first]]
+
Hugo was born in [[2006]] or [[2007]]. He most likely inherited his father's [[Quidditch]] skills, as he was noted to fly a lot with his cousins [[Albus Potter]] and [[James Potter II|James Potter]]. He also appeared to have a quiet demeanour.
   
While Harry tended to have more fun with Ron, Hermione was consistently his place of refuge when others abandoned him, from Ron's jealous withdrawal during the Triwizard Tournament, to Harry's discovery of Dumbledore's past during the war. Despite their differences, Harry and Hermione tended to support one another at the expense of others when necessary. Hermione repeatedly chose to help and support Harry in his fight against Voldemort, regardless of personal cost. Examples include breaking the laws regarding time travel in order to help him save Sirius, teaching him defensive magic in preparation for the [[Triwizard Tournament]], blackmailing [[Rita Skeeter]] in order to give him a way to tell the public about Voldemort's return, protecting him from torture by Dolores Umbridge, and Obliviating her parents in order to go on the run with him. She notably chose to support him even when Ron did not. Smaller acts of friendship included helping him with homework and cheering him on at Quidditch games.
+
====Nieces and nephews====
  +
[[File:Harry's kids.png|230x230px|thumb|left|The Potter children, some of Hermione's nieces and nephews]]
   
Harry was similarly protective and supportive of Hermione. Much like Hermione, Harry was often a place of refuge for Hermione when others leave her. Harry often comforts Hermione and shows her kindness and care when she is upset. On the occasion that Buckbeak the Hippogriff is executed, Harry consoles her as she cries.
+
As four of [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]]'s five surviving siblings were married by 2017, Hermione had quite a few nieces and nephews through her husband: [[Harry Potter|Harry]] and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]] had three children ([[James Potter II|James]], [[Albus Potter|Albus]] and [[Lily L. Potter|Lily]]), as did [[William Weasley|Bill]] and [[Fleur Delacour|Fleur]] ([[Victoire Weasley|Victoire]], [[Dominique Weasley|Dominique]] and [[Louis Weasley|Louis]]), while [[George Weasley|George]] and [[Angelina Johnson]] had a son and a daughter ([[Fred Weasley II|Fred]] and [[Roxanne Weasley|Roxanne]]), and [[Percy Weasley]] had two daughters ([[Molly Weasley II|Molly]] and [[Lucy Weasley|Lucy]]) with his wife, [[Audrey Weasley|Audrey]]. [[Victoire Weasley]], one of Fleur and Bill's daughters, was seen kissing [[Edward Lupin|Teddy Lupin]] at [[King's Cross Station]], by [[James Potter II|James Potter]], Hermione's nephew and godson. Hermione visited them all on many occasions. It can be assumed that she was closest with Harry's children.
   
He was also quick to defend Hermione from Cho Chang, Draco Malfoy, and others who insulted her for her looks or parentage, which showed his pride in her intellect on numerous occasions. He consistently praised her intelligence and magical skills to teachers, asked her for help in dangerous situations, and defended her against bullies. On one occasion, he even choose to side with her over Ron when was dating Lavender. But he expressed outrage when Hermione went to Slughorn's party with Cormac McLaggen.
+
====Other Weasley family members====
  +
[[File:Weasley Wizarding Vacation in Egypt.png|235x235px|thumb|left|The [[Weasley family]], her future in-laws]]
   
Harry also defended Hermione physically on instinct. This showed his willingness to put her before himself as well as his unconditional brotherly love for her. For example, when Lupin turns into a werewolf and attacked Hermione and Harry in [[1994]], Harry shielded her from the danger.
+
Because of her friendships with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]], Hermione became friendly with the entire [[Weasley family]]. She spent a portion of many of her summer holidays at their home of [[the Burrow]], and attended some family outings with them, such as shopping for school supplies in [[Diagon Alley]] and attending the [[1994]] [[Quidditch World Cup]] with them. [[Arthur Weasley]] was fascinated by the [[Non-magic people|Muggle]] world and thus Hermione's background, and even invited Hermione's [[Granger family|parents]] for a drink upon first meeting them. [[Molly Weasley]] was fond of Hermione, though she treated her coldly for a brief time after [[Rita Skeeter]] printed lies about Hermione toying with the hearts of [[Harry Potter]] and [[Viktor Krum]], much to Hermione's bewilderment. After Harry explained that the stories were false, Mrs Weasley once again warmed up to Hermione. Also, she and [[Percy Weasley]] were considered to be on good terms until their fight over elf rights.
[[File:Tumblr n109aipg9S1ryj5t4o8 r1 250.gif|245px|thumb|left|Harry and Hermione having a ''very intense and charged moment'']]
 
   
Many people, including [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]], [[Cho Chang]], [[Viktor Krum|Viktor, Krum]], [[Molly Weasley|Mrs Weasley]],, have occasionally mistaken Harry and Hermione's relationship to be a romantic one, given their closeness and expressions of physical affection, such as kisses on the cheek, staying by one another's bedsides when hurt or injured, embracing each other, and holding hands.<ref name="GOF" /><ref>The film adaptation of ''Goblet of Fire'' expands on this by having Hermione and Harry being caught in a friendly embrace by [[Rita Skeeter]] who incorrectly interprets it as teen romance. In the film adaptation of ''Half-Blood Prince'' Harry asks Hermione to go to Slughorn's party as his date, but she declines, having already decided to take McLaggen to annoy Ron.</ref> Harry eventually explained to Ron that he and Hermione were like brother and sister.<ref name="DH" /> They shared similar upbringings as being only children raised in the [[Non-magic people|Muggle]] world, and showed each other unconditional love despite their many differences and disagreements. During their time alone during the war, Hermione and Harry maintained a distance with Hermione mostly crying for Ron and Harry observing Ginny's dot at the maruderer's map. They did exchange a comforting moment during their brief embrace after Harry visited his parent's grave.<ref name="HAH">[[J. K.

Hermione and Harry remained best friends into adulthood, and eventually became co-siblings in-law when Hermione married [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] and Harry married [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]]. Hermione was also the aunt and godmother of Harry's three children: [[James Potter II|James Sirius]], [[Albus Potter|Albus Severus]] and [[Lily Potter|Lily Luna]]. They were also coworkers for many years as employees of the Ministry of Magic in law enforcement.

It is interesting to note that Albus Dumbledore's final plan to defeat Lord Voldemort, in which Harry would learn the story of the Deathly Hallows in time to use them against Voldemort, revolved not only around Harry himself, but Hermione as well. Dumbledore knew that Harry was too passionate and angry to be able to keep from attempting to become Master of Death, and so entrusted {{TBB}} to Hermione, so that she would learn of the Hallows' symbol first and would be able to caution and guide Harry down the path of reason.
+
Fred and George Weasley seemed to regard Hermione and Harry almost like other younger siblings, teasing them as well as being protective of them. When [[Draco Malfoy]] called Hermione a "[[Mudblood]]" in [[1992]], the twins were outraged, and attempted to attack him.<ref name="CS" /> Although Hermione disapproved of some of their antics, trying to use her status as a [[prefect]] to keep them in line, she still got on well with them. Hermione once argued with them that the [[Ageing Potion]] they planned on using to trick the age line protecting the [[Goblet of Fire]] wouldn't work because Dumbledore would have already thought of a foolish ageing potion. They didn't listen and tried to cross the line which resulted in them being thrown back and grow long, white beards.The only time she was notably angry with them was when they tested out their [[Skiving Snackbox]]es on unsuspecting [[first year]] students; though the twins initially scoffed at her concerns and her ability to make them stop, they backed down when she threatened to tell their [[Molly Weasley|mother]].
  +
  +
However, Hermione still admired the cleverness and creativity of their spell work,<ref name="OOTP" /> once remarking that they could do some "''extraordinary magic''," which Fred was flattered enough by to offer Hermione material from their [[Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes|joke shop]] free of charge.<ref name="HBP" /> Fred and George also tried to get Hermione to relax, joking around with her about things such as their late uncle [[Bilius]]'s penchant for making mischief at weddings.<ref name="DH" /> Hermione was devastated when Fred was killed during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]]. Hermione was not as close to the other Weasley siblings, though she was invited to [[William Weasley|Bill]]'s [[Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour|wedding]] to [[Fleur Delacour]] in [[1997]].
  +
  +
With her marriage to Ron, Hermione became a part of the Weasley family herself.
  +
  +
====Fleur Delacour====
  +
[[File:Fleur Delacour.jpg|220x220px|thumb|left|[[Fleur Delacour]], her future sister-in-law]]
  +
  +
When Hermione first met Fleur Delacour, an incredibly beautiful, [[France|French]], part-[[Veela]] [[Wizardkind|witch]], in [[1994]], during the [[Triwizard Tournament]]. Hermione disliked Fleur almost immediately, as she was given to fussily and loudly criticising nearly everything at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], from the weather, to the decoration and food. The fact that Ron had a little bit of a crush on Fleur didn't help, but he eventually got over it.
  +
  +
Hermione, like Ginny and [[Molly Weasley|Mrs Weasley]], was infuriated by Fleur's arrogance and constant complaining when [[William Weasley|Bill Weasley]] sent Fleur, his then fiancée, to [[the Burrow]] to get to know his family. However, when Fleur responded to Bill becoming permanently disfigured by [[Fenrir Greyback]] with indignant denial that Bill's appearance would in any way effect their marital plans, Hermione most likely set her feelings aside.
  +
  +
Despite seeming rather inconsiderate and self-centred, Fleur proved to be courageous and ultimately caring, even selfless, in her own way. She put her life in danger by posing as one of Harry's decoys in the [[Battle of the Seven Potters]], and after the [[Skirmish at Malfoy Manor|Battle of Malfoy Manor]], Hermione, Harry and Ron, along with [[Luna Lovegood]], [[Dean Thomas]], and an injured [[Garrick Ollivander]] and [[Griphook]], stayed with Bill and Fleur for a month at [[Shell Cottage]], where Fleur took care of them all like a mother. Later, Fleur became Hermione's sister-in-law through her marriage to [[William Weasley|Bill Weasley]], and Hermione's marriage to [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]].

Ronald Weasley was, essentially, the love of Hermione's life.

Ronald Weasley was, essentially, the love of Hermione's life. Although their relationship would have many ups and downs, Hermione and Ron Weasley were good friends for most of their years at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], and of course, were best friends with [[Harry Potter]], who was usually a mediator in their disputes. They tended to argue frequently, though they usually got over their arguments, which tended to be minor or about trivial issues, although there were a few times when it seemed as if their friendship would be irreparable.

Hints of her feelings for Ron were shown as early as their first year, when she was badly hurt emotionally when he made fun of her for not having friends due to her bookish and bossy nature. Accoridng to Neville she spent the whole afternoon crying in the loo before the incident with the troll took place. In their third year Ron saw Sirius Black standing over him with a knife, Hermione was shocked and scared the most and even cried. They were both very awkward and embarrassed at times, being insecure with their own feelings for each other.   Ron was used to always being in Harry's shadow and did not want the girl he loved to be also taken from him by his best friend. Hermione was greatly offended when Ron initially didn't ask her to the Yule Ball as his partner until he got rejected by Fleur Delacour. When it is revealed Viktor Krum was Hermione's date, a jealous Ron got into a heated row with Hermione, which she ended by making clear that she would go as Ron's date in future if only he asked her as his first choice. Ron and Hermione's relationship again suffered when Ron began dating [[Lavender Brown]] in [[1996]], though the two reconciled after Ron was accidentally poisoned, leaving Hermione shaken. Ron's relationship with Lavender ended soon after, and both he and Hermione were more content for it.<ref name="HBP" />

In her fourth year while Harry and Ron were not in speaking terms following Harry's name coming out of the goblet of fire, Hermione defended Ron to Harry reminding him that despite him not wanting it he always gets all the attention while Ron had to live up competing with his five older brothers and Ron is always made to feel second to him.

In their fifth year, Hermione kissed Ron on the cheek before the [[Inter-House Quidditch Cup|Quidditch Tournament]], to which he reacted by being "puzzled" and touching the spot where she kissed him. During Gryffindor's Quidditch try-outs in their sixth year, Hermione also [[Confundus Charm|Confunded]] Cormac McLaggen to increase Ron's chances of being made the team's Keeper. Also, Hermione became jealous (but she tried to conceal it) when Ron began dating [[Lavender Brown]] and kissing her frequently.

They were rather young when they were married, and their relationship evolved over time. By the time that Hermione was elected Minister For Magic, Ron had become more the stay-at-home-dad due to the convenience it placed on their respective careers, as Ron's entrepreneurial exploits could be more easily conducted than Hermione's careers in law enforcement and eventually politics. Their combative relationship eventually subsided for a more affectionate one, as Ron was seen to kiss Hermione in public extremely often as noted by their nephew, Albus Potter. Hermione was initially wary when Ron spoke of how early they had married and was jokingly suspicious that he wanted a break from their marriage, but was deeply moved when Ron told her that he wanted to renew their vows and marry her all over again after reading about how Muggles occasionally did such a thing. Hermione was so touched by her husband's suggestion that they began to kiss passionately over her mountain of paperwork in her office. This shows how Ron had matured into a startling romantic over the years and how it helped to temper their initially rocky relationship that begun 31 years prior.

Ginny Weasley was Hermione's best female friend and Ginny's confidante. The two grew close when Hermione stayed in Ginny's room at [[the Burrow]] during her many summertime visits. Ginny was the only one Hermione told about being asked to the [[Yule Ball]] by [[Viktor Krum]],<ref name="GOF" /> while Hermione was the only one who knew that Ginny had been learning to fly in secret for years.<ref name="OOTP" /> She also gave Ginny advice about dealing with her feelings for Harry advice that eventually led to the two dating,<ref name="HBP" /> and eventually marrying.
+
Viktor Krum, a renowned professional [[Quidditch]] player and student of [[Durmstrang Institute|Durmstrang]], came to [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]] in [[1994]] for the [[Triwizard Tournament]], in which he was a Champion. He took to following Hermione into the library, watching her and trying to "''pluck up the courage''" to speak to her. Eventually, he asked her to be his date to the [[Yule Ball]], and Hermione accepted. Their arrival together caused something of a stir, given Viktor's fame and Hermione's exceptional, and rather unexpected, beauty.
   
Hermione comforted Ginny after an encounter with [[Dementor]]s upset her in [[1993]],<ref name="POA" /> and after the death of her brother [[Fred Weasley|Fred]] in [[1998]].<ref name="DH" /> However, Hermione would not have been afraid to stand up to Ginny when she felt that Ginny was wrong. The two remained very close after [[Second Wizarding War|the war]] and eventually became sisters-in-law when Hermione married Ron, making her an aunt to Ginny's three children, [[James Potter II|James]], [[Albus Potter|Albus]], and [[Lily L. Potter|Lily]], as well as being chosen to be godmother to Ginny's eldest son James, and making Ginny Rose and Hugo's aunt and almost certainly Rose's godmother.

Hermione was Viktor's 'hostage' during the Second Task of the Tournament.

Because of her friendships with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]], Hermione became friendly with the entire [[Weasley family]]. She spent a portion of many of her summer holidays at their home of [[the Burrow]], and attended some family outings with them, such as shopping for school supplies in [[Diagon Alley]] and attending the [[1994]] [[Quidditch World Cup]] with them. [[Arthur Weasley]] was fascinated by the [[Non-magic people|Muggle]] world and thus Hermione's background, and even invited Hermione's [[Granger family|parents]] for a drink upon first meeting them. [[Molly Weasley]] was fond of Hermione, though she treated her coldly for a brief time after [[Rita Skeeter]] printed lies about Hermione toying with the hearts of [[Harry Potter]] and [[Viktor Krum]], much to Hermione's bewilderment. After Harry explained that the stories were false, Mrs Weasley once again warmed up to Hermione. Also, she and [[Percy Weasley]] were considered to be on good terms until their fight over elf rights.
+
Hermione became friends with Harry Potter after they as well as [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] took down a [[Mountain Troll]] together in their first year.<ref name="PS" /> They tended to get along very well on a day-to-day basis, though Harry occasionally became annoyed by Hermione's nagging, while she occasionally became annoyed by his lack of discipline and conviction in his schoolwork. Their only notable row was over Hermione getting Harry's [[Firebolt]] confiscated in their third year, which she felt it might be a trap. Harry and Ron reconciled with Hermione after [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]] scolded them for their treatment of her. Harry and Hermione were quite similar in their dour, brooding tendencies in times of trouble, and often needed Ron's humour and levity to counterbalance their intense personalities.

+
Harry, Hermione, and Ron spent nearly all their time together during their years at Hogwarts, and shortly afterwards, Hermione led Harry through [[Time-Turner|time-travel]], and together they rescued [[Sirius Black]] and [[Buckbeak]]; Hermione breaking the rules of using her Time-Turner, something she admitted was incredibly dangerous, demonstrated the strength of her friendship with Harry.<ref name="POA" /> The [[1994|following year]], Hermione was the only student who believed Harry when he told her he had not put his name in the [[Goblet of Fire]], and spent much of the [[Triwizard Tournament]] teaching Harry useful spells and trying to reconcile him and Ron.<ref name="GOF" />

+
While Harry and Hermione typically argued less than Ron and Hermione, they had the most philosophical and moral disagreements with one another. Ron typically deferred to Harry's opinions on important decisions, and tends to hold back when Hermione confronts Harry about them, letting them battle it out. For example, Harry and Hermione fought about how best to deal with [[Dolores Umbridge]] when she infiltrated Hogwarts, whether or not Sirius's judgement could be trusted, whether or not Harry should have tried to use [[Occlumency]] to block out his mental link with Voldemort, whether Dumbledore's past made him an unworthy leader, and whether they should have pursued the Hallows or the Horcruxes. Hermione expressed immense displeasure to Harry during the sixth year after he started obtaining better results than her at Potion by the help of the "Half Blood Prince's potions book". Harry tended to be dismissive of Hermione's opinions, and could even grow angry when she tried to argue her point, but many times realised later that she was right. For example, Harry was often dismissive of Hermione's insistence that all [[house-elves]] deserve respect and kindness, and was neglectful towards [[Kreacher]] because of his bigotry until he finally realised the horrifying nature of his enslavement.
   
Fred and George Weasley seemed to regard Hermione and Harry almost like other younger siblings, teasing them as well as being protective of them. When [[Draco Malfoy]] called Hermione a "[[Mudblood]]" in [[1992]], the twins were outraged, and attempted to attack him.<ref name="CS" /> Although Hermione disapproved of some of their antics, trying to use her status as a [[prefect]] to keep them in line, she still got on well with them. Hermione once argued with them that the [[Ageing Potion]] they planned on using to trick the age line protecting the [[Goblet of Fire]] wouldn't work because Dumbledore would have already thought of a foolish ageing potion. They didn't listen and tried to cross the line which resulted in them being thrown back and grow long, white beards.The only time she was notably angry with them was when they tested out their [[Skiving Snackbox]]es on unsuspecting [[first year]] students; though the twins initially scoffed at her concerns and her ability to make them stop, they backed down when she threatened to tell their [[Molly Weasley|mother]].
+
[[File:Harry&Hermion poa.gif|240x240px|thumb|right|Hermione protecting Harry, demonstrating her willingness to put his best interests first]]
   
However, Hermione still admired the cleverness and creativity of their spell work,<ref name="OOTP" /> once remarking that they could do some "''extraordinary magic''," which Fred was flattered enough by to offer Hermione material from their [[Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes|joke shop]] free of charge.<ref name="HBP" /> Fred and George also tried to get Hermione to relax, joking around with her about things such as their late uncle [[Bilius]]'s penchant for making mischief at weddings.<ref name="DH" /> Hermione was devastated when Fred was killed during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]]. Hermione was not as close to the other Weasley siblings, though she was invited to [[William Weasley|Bill]]'s [[Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour|wedding]] to [[Fleur Delacour]] in [[1997]].
+
While Harry tended to have more fun with Ron, Hermione was consistently his place of refuge when others abandoned him, from Ron's jealous withdrawal during the Triwizard Tournament, to Harry's discovery of Dumbledore's past during the war. Despite their differences, Harry and Hermione tended to support one another at the expense of others when necessary. Hermione repeatedly chose to help and support Harry in his fight against Voldemort, regardless of personal cost. Examples include breaking the laws regarding time travel in order to help him save Sirius, teaching him defensive magic in preparation for the [[Triwizard Tournament]], blackmailing [[Rita Skeeter]] in order to give him a way to tell the public about Voldemort's return, protecting him from torture by Dolores Umbridge, and Obliviating her parents in order to go on the run with him. She notably chose to support him even when Ron did not. Smaller acts of friendship included helping him with homework and cheering him on at Quidditch games.
   
With her marriage to Ron, Hermione became a part of the Weasley family herself.
+
Harry was similarly protective and supportive of Hermione. Much like Hermione, Harry was often a place of refuge for Hermione when others leave her. Harry often comforts Hermione and shows her kindness and care when she is upset. On the occasion that Buckbeak the Hippogriff is executed, Harry consoles her as she cries.
   
====Fleur Delacour====
+
He was also quick to defend Hermione from Cho Chang, Draco Malfoy, and others who insulted her for her looks or parentage, which showed his pride in her intellect on numerous occasions. He consistently praised her intelligence and magical skills to teachers, asked her for help in dangerous situations, and defended her against bullies. On one occasion, he even choose to side with her over Ron when was dating Lavender. But he expressed outrage when Hermione went to Slughorn's party with Cormac McLaggen.
[[File:FLEUR1.jpg|220x220px|thumb|left|[[Fleur Delacour]], her future sister-in-law]]
 
   
When Hermione first met Fleur Delacour, an incredibly beautiful, [[France|French]], part-[[Veela]] [[Wizardkind|witch]], in [[1994]], during the [[Triwizard Tournament]]. Hermione disliked Fleur almost immediately, as she was given to fussily and loudly criticising nearly everything at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], from the weather, to the decoration and food. The fact that Ron had a little bit of a crush on Fleur didn't help, but he eventually got over it.
+
Harry also defended Hermione physically on instinct. This showed his willingness to put her before himself as well as his unconditional brotherly love for her. For example, when Lupin turns into a werewolf and attacked Hermione and Harry in [[1994]], Harry shielded her from the danger.
   
Hermione, like Ginny and [[Molly Weasley|Mrs Weasley]], was infuriated by Fleur's arrogance and constant complaining when [[William Weasley|Bill Weasley]] sent Fleur, his then fiancée, to [[the Burrow]] to get to know his family. However, when Fleur responded to Bill becoming permanently disfigured by [[Fenrir Greyback]] with indignant denial that Bill's appearance would in any way effect their marital plans, Hermione most likely set her feelings aside.
+
Many people, including [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]], [[Cho Chang]], [[Viktor Krum|Viktor, Krum]], [[Molly Weasley|Mrs Weasley]],, have occasionally mistaken Harry and Hermione's relationship to be a romantic one, given their closeness and expressions of physical affection, such as kisses on the cheek, staying by one another's bedsides when hurt or injured, embracing each other, and holding hands.<ref name="GOF" /><ref>The film adaptation of ''Goblet of Fire'' expands on this by having Hermione and Harry being caught in a friendly embrace by [[Rita Skeeter]] who incorrectly interprets it as teen romance. In the film adaptation of ''Half-Blood Prince'' Harry asks Hermione to go to Slughorn's party as his date, but she declines, having already decided to take McLaggen to annoy Ron.</ref> Harry eventually explained to Ron that he and Hermione were like brother and sister.<ref name="DH" /> They shared similar upbringings as being only children raised in the [[Non-magic people|Muggle]] world, and showed each other unconditional love despite their many differences and disagreements. During their time alone during the war, Ron and Harry maintained a distance with Hermione mostly crying for Ron and Harry observing Ginny's dot at the maruderer's map. They did exchange a comforting moment during their brief embrace after Harry visited his parent's grave.<ref name="HAH">[[J. K. Rowling]]'s comments in ''[[Harry, A History: The True Story of a Boy Wizard, His Fans, and Life Inside the Harry Potter Phenomenon|Harry, A History]]''.</ref>
   
Despite seeming rather inconsiderate and self-centred, Fleur proved to be courageous and ultimately caring, even selfless, in her own way. She put her life in danger by posing as one of Harry's decoys in the [[Battle of the Seven Potters]], and after the [[Skirmish at Malfoy Manor|Battle of Malfoy Manor]], Hermione, Harry and Ron, along with [[Luna Lovegood]], [[Dean Thomas]], and an injured [[Garrick Ollivander]] and [[Griphook]], stayed with Bill and Fleur for a month at [[Shell Cottage]], where Fleur took care of them all like a mother. Later, Fleur became Hermione's sister-in-law through her marriage to [[William Weasley|Bill Weasley]], and Hermione's marriage to [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]].
+
Hermione and Harry remained best friends into adulthood, and eventually became co-siblings in-law when Hermione married [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] and Harry married [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]]. Hermione was also the aunt and godmother of Harry's three children: [[James Potter II|James Sirius]], [[Albus Potter|Albus Severus]] and [[Lily L. Potter|Lily Luna]]. They were also coworkers for many years as employees of the Ministry of Magic in law enforcement.

It is interesting to note that Albus Dumbledore's final plan to defeat Lord Voldemort, in which Harry would learn the story of the Deathly Hallows in time to use them against Voldemort, revolved not only around Harry himself, but Hermione as well. Dumbledore knew that Harry was too passionate and angry to be able to keep from attempting to become Master of Death, and so entrusted {{TBB}} to Hermione, so that she would learn of the Hallows' symbol first and would be able to caution and guide Harry down the path of reason.

After the [[Second Wizarding War]], Hermione had two children with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]]: a daughter named [[Rose Granger-Weasley|Rose]] and a son named [[Hugo Granger-Weasley|Hugo]].
+
Ginny Weasley was Hermione's best female friend and Ginny's confidante. The two grew close when Hermione stayed in Ginny's room at [[the Burrow]] during her many summertime visits.

Rose started her first year at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]] in [[2017]], along with her cousin, [[Albus Potter|Albus]]. Ron stated that Rose had inherited her mother's brains. Hermione was probably very close to Rose because she was also described as smart, yet not a complete know-it-all.
+
Hermione comforted Ginny after an encounter with [[Dementor]]s upset her in [[1993]],<ref name="POA" /> and after the death of her brother [[Fred Weasley|Fred]] in [[1998]].<ref name="DH" /> However, Hermione would not have been afraid to stand up to Ginny when she felt that Ginny was wrong.

Potter|Lily]], as well as being chosen to be godmother to Ginny's eldest son James, and making Ginny Rose and Hugo's aunt and almost certainly Rose's godmother.
 
Hugo was born in [[2006]] or [[2007]]. He most likely inherited his father's [[Quidditch]] skills, as he is noted to fly a lot with his cousins [[Albus Potter]] and [[James Potter II|James Potter]]. He also appears to have a quiet demeanour.
 
 
====Nieces and nephews====

As four of [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]]'s five surviving siblings were married by 2017, Hermione had quite a few nieces and nephews through her husband: [[Harry Potter|Harry]] and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]] had three children ([[James Potter II|James]], [[Albus Potter|Albus]] and [[Lily Potter|Lily]]), as did [[William Weasley|Bill]] and [[Fleur Delacour|Fleur]] ([[Victoire Weasley|Victoire]], [[Dominique Weasley|Dominique]] and [[Louis Weasley|Louis]]), while [[George Weasley|George]] and [[Angelina Johnson]] had a son and a daughter ([[Fred Weasley II|Fred]] and [[Roxanne Weasley|Roxanne]]), and [[Percy Weasley]] had two daughters ([[Molly Weasley II|Molly]] and [[Lucy Weasley|Lucy]]) with his wife, [[Audrey Weasley|Audrey]]. [[Victoire Weasley]], one of Fleur and Bill's daughters, was seen kissing [[Edward Lupin|Teddy Lupin]] at [[King's Cross Station]], by [[James Potter II|James Potter]], Hermione's nephew and godson. Hermione visited them all on many occasions. It can be assumed that she was closest with Harry's children.

Hermione often fiercely defended Neville when others insulted him, and her friendship and support, as well as that of other [[Dumbledore's Army|D.A.]] members, likely contributed to Neville gradually gaining self-confidence and courage.<ref name="DH" /> Neville was obviously very fond of Hermione, and appreciative of her kindness and all the help she had given him. It was hinted that he spoke of her frequently to his grandmother, [[Augusta Longbottom]], who seemed to already know a good deal about Hermione when they first met at Saint Mungo's in [[1995]]. Following the war, they kept in touch.

Although Hermione rarely saw eye-to-eye with Luna Lovegood due to their very different world views and beliefs, the two became very good friends through [[Dumbledore's Army]]. Hermione first met Luna on the [[Hogwarts Express]] in [[1995]]; she insulted ''[[The Quibbler]]'', but backtracked when Luna told her that her [[Xenophilius Lovegood|father]] was the editor. Hermione was frustrated with Luna's belief in all manner of things without proof or logical grounds, but eventually simply accepted their differences, telling Luna that her planned trip to Sweden in search of a [[Crumple-Horned Snorkack]] sounded "''lovely''".<ref name="OOTP" />

+
[[File:OOTP promo front closeup Sirius Black.jpg|247x247px|thumb|left|[[Sirius Black]], her friend]]
   
Professor Minerva McGonagall took a shine to Hermione from the first class she had with her, granting the first-year student in [[Gryffindor|her house]] one of her "''rare smiles''" when Hermione successfully [[Transfiguration|transfigured]] a match into a needle early on in the lesson and long before any other student. She had high expectations for Hermione, and was thus disappointed in her when Hermione claimed she tried to fight the [[troll]] that entered the school in [[1991]] on her own, in order to cover up for Harry and Ron. Whenever Hermione and her friends would get into trouble, McGonagall almost inevitably looked to Hermione to be the most sensible one.<ref name="PS" />
+
Hermione first learned about Sirius Black in [[1993]], when he escaped [[Azkaban]]. The wizarding world at large knew of him as the wizard who murdered twelve Muggles and a wizard ([[Peter Pettigrew]]) with a single curse. Very few knew of his affiliation with the Potters and those who did also believed that Sirius had betrayed [[James Potter I|James]] and [[Lily J. Potter|Lily Potter]] to Voldemort by revealing their location at [[Godric's Hollow]]. During the events at Hogwarts in [[1993]], Hermione along with Harry, Ron and Lupin discovered that, contrary to their previous beliefs, Sirius Black had never committed the murders for which he had been incarcerated, nor had he betrayed his closest friends.
   
McGonagall was noticeably upset when Hermione was [[petrification|petrified]] in [[1993]], even granting Harry and Ron permission to skip a class so they could visit Hermione in the hospital wing.<ref name="CS" /> The [[1993–1994 school year|following school year]], she helped arrange for Hermione to be granted a [[Time-Turner]] to take extra classes.<ref name="POA" /> When the professor was injured with four [[Stunning Spell]]s in [[1996]], Hermione was very upset and worried for her.<ref name="OOTP" /> Hermione seemed to regard her head of house as a role model, while Professor McGonagall, in spite of her sternness, was obviously quite fond of Hermione and expected great things of her.
+
The trio managed to save Sirius and Lupin from being subjected to the [[Dementor's Kiss]] at the hands of [[Severus Snape]] by firing three simultaneous [[Disarming Charm]]s at him. Snape was blasted off his feet and knocked unconscious, allowing Harry, Ron and Hermione to continue their interrogation of Sirius who later revealed that Pettigrew had disguised himself in his rat [[Animagus]] form for twelve years in order to escape justice and the wrath of Voldemort's remaining Death Eaters. However, upon exiting the [[Whomping Willow]]'s secret passageway together, Pettigrew shrewdly used Lupin's werewolf transformation as a distraction and escaped. Sirius was soon apprehended and locked in [[Filius Flitwick]]'s office to await the Dementor's Kiss. Harry and Hermione would later use the latter's [[Time-Turner]] to [[Rescue of Sirius Black and Buckbeak|rescue]] Sirius, who became deeply grateful to both of them.
   
Later, after McGonagall became headmistress of Hogwarts and Hermione became a member of the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]], McGonagall granted her permission to use notes left to the Hogwarts Archives, written by [[Albus Dumbledore]], in her re-translation of {{TBB}}, demonstrating McGonagall's trust in her former pupil.
+
In [[1994]], Hermione, Harry, and Ron visited Sirius at the cave off [[Hogsmeade]] village he was hiding in, bringing him food. Here they discussed the many mysteries that had occurred during that year, the trio learning valuable pieces of information regarding the imprisonment of [[Bartemius Crouch Junior|Barty Crouch Jr]] After the events of the Third Task, Sirius (while in his Animagus form) joined Hermione, Ron and [[Molly Weasley]] at Harry's bedside, each indicating their affections for the latter.
   
===Viktor Krum===
+
Hermione and Sirius would not meet again until the summer of [[1995]], at the Headquarters of the second [[Order of the Phoenix]]. Sirius was obliged to remain in [[12 Grimmauld Place]] for his own safety (his innocence not yet recognised by the Ministry). Sirius was rather disappointed when Harry was allowed to return to Hogwarts, Hermione pointing out that he had probably been secretly wishing that Harry had been expelled from school so that they could both stay at Grimmauld Place and be "''outcasts together''". Hermione expressed an even deeper understanding of Sirius's emotions when she stated her opinion to Harry that Sirius was attempting to relive his happier school days through his godson. Harry ignored this and became slightly agitated at the suggestion that Sirius might be guilty of such a crude, selfish mentality. However, she severely disapproved of his indifferent and occasionally cruel treatment of his [[house-elf]], [[Kreacher]], despite the fact that Kreacher initially appeared to be disgusted by her and addressed her as "the [[Mudblood]]" (which Hermione often attributed to Kreacher being senile due to his old age.)
{{Dialogue a-b-a|Hermione|How did [[Rita Skeeter|she]] know Viktor asked me to visit him over the summer?... Madam Pomfrey gave us both blankets and then he sort of pulled me away from the judges so they wouldn't hear, and he said, if I wasn't doing anything over the summer, would I like to —|Ron Weasley |And what did you say?|And he did say he'd never felt the same way about anyone else...|Hermione about Viktor Krum's invitation to spend the summer with him.|Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire}}
 
[[File:Goffilm39.1.jpg|232x232px|thumb|left|[[Viktor Krum]], her friend and Yule Ball date]]
 
   
Viktor Krum, a renowned professional [[Quidditch]] player and student of [[Durmstrang Institute|Durmstrang]], came to [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]] in [[1994]] for the [[Triwizard Tournament]], in which he was a Champion. He took to following Hermione into the library, watching her and trying to "''pluck up the courage''" to speak to her. Eventually, he asked her to be his date to the [[Yule Ball]], and Hermione accepted. Their arrival together caused something of a stir, given Viktor's fame and Hermione's exceptional, and rather unexpected, beauty.
+
She also thought that Sirius was attempting to live vicariously through her, Harry and Ron when he encouraged them to form Dumbledore's Army, but the two boys became angry and snapped at her when she expressed this belief. Sirius was eventually killed by [[Bellatrix Lestrange]] in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]], much to the dismay of his friends and loved ones. Hermione was devastated by his death, and often tried to provide comfort to Harry, who had been even more deeply affected by the tragedy. At the end of the [[Second Wizarding War]], Hermione became godmother to Harry's eldest son, [[James Potter II|James Sirius]], whose first and middle name was derived from James Potter and Sirius Black respectively.
   
Hermione was Viktor's 'hostage' during the Second Task of the Tournament. After he pulled her from the lake, Viktor told Hermione that he had never felt about someone the way he felt about her, and invited her to visit him in [[Bulgaria]] over the summer.<ref name="GOF" /> At some point, it is alleged by Ginny Weasley during a confrontation with her brother Ron, that he and Hermione shared a kiss during that period.<ref name="HBP" /> Whether or not Ginny was just trying to get under Ron's skin or if this actually happened is unknown. What is known is that their relationship never became serious enough for her to visit him in Bulgaria, they kept in contact through letters over the years.<ref name="OOTP" /> They met again at the [[Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour|wedding]] of [[William Weasley|Bill Weasley]] and [[Fleur Delacour]] in [[1997]], where Viktor complimented Hermione and was disappointed to learn that she had "sort of" begun a romance with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]].<ref name="DH" />

  +
[[Crookshanks]] was Hermione's large, bandy-legged, half-[[Kneazle]], ginger-coloured pet cat since she bought him from the [[Magical Menagerie]] in [[Diagon Alley]], in [[1993]]. She seemed to think he was gorgeous, although no one else had wanted to buy him when he was still being sold at the Menagerie. She was proud of his cleverness. The latter proved to be quite true during the [[1993-1994 school year]].<ref name="POA" />
  +
  +
Crookshanks recognised that Hermione had left him at [[the Burrow]] before Bill and Fleur's [[Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour|wedding]] in [[1997]],<ref name="DH" /> most likely had been left in care of Mrs Weasley or Ginny, but it is possible that they were reunited after the Second War given the deep care and affection they had for each other.

Hermione had a less tumultuous relationship with Parvati, although the two were not close.

[[File:Mclaggen.jpg|252x252px|thumb|left|Cormac McLaggen]]
   
Draco Malfoy, of an old and wealthy [[pure-blood]] [[Malfoy family|family]] with [[Death Eaters|Death Eater]] ties, was raised to believe in the inferiority of [[Muggle-born]]s, and thus treated Hermione with disdain. This was probably exacerbated by Hermione's friendship with Harry and Ron, who shared a strong enmity with Draco from virtually the moment they met, and her beating Draco in school marks, for which his [[Lucius Malfoy|father]] berated him.<ref name="CS" /> Draco frequently called Hermione the disparaging term "[[Mudblood]]," which usually set off the tempers of her friends — and the entire [[Gryffindor]] [[Quidditch team]] when he first said it to her face in [[1992]]<ref name="CS" /> — but Hermione tended to ignore Draco and urged Harry and Ron to do the same.
+
[[Cormac McLaggen]] was a [[Gryffindor]] student one year above Hermione. The two became acquainted in [[1996]] through the [[Slug Club]], of which they were both members, though Hermione did not think highly of McLaggen. When she overheard him insulting [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]] during [[Quidditch]] try-outs, Hermione struck him with the [[Confundus Charm]], undermining his abilities as a [[Keeper]].
   
Occasionally she would snap back at him, and in their third year, she even slapped<!-- ATTENTION: DON'T change this to "punched." Within the wiki canon policy, the books supersede the films. Hermione never punched him in the book.--> him when he mocked [[Rubeus Hagrid]] for being upset over the impending execution of [[Buckbeak]], for which Draco was largely responsible.<ref name="POA" />
+
Later in the year, when Hermione was furious with Ron for dating [[Lavender Brown]], she decided to attend [[Horace Slughorn|Professor Slughorn]]'s [[Slug Club Christmas party|Christmas party]] with McLaggen because she knew Ron despised him. McLaggen was apparently interested in Hermione, as he escorted her to the party and was very forward with her romantically while there. This, as well as his tendency to boast about himself, put Hermione off, and she soon abandoned him for the company of [[Harry Potter|Harry]] and [[Luna Lovegood|Luna]] before leaving the party altogether to avoid him.<ref name="HBP" /> It can be assumed that the party was the end of their interaction.
   
In spite of his prejudice and dislike toward Hermione, Draco was reluctant to confirm her identity when he was asked to do so by his parents and aunt [[Bellatrix Lestrange|Bellatrix]] in [[1998]], avoiding even looking at her. As an adult sobered by his wartime experiences, Draco was civil towards Hermione and her friends, and friendly with her nephew, Albus Potter.<ref name="DH" />He even found the idea of taking orders from her during their ambush in 1981 of Delphini to be darkly humorous. Draco's civility towards Hermione during this time was likely reinforced due to her being the Minister For Magic in Britain at the time, and possibly due to her relations to Albus Potter, the best friend of his own son, Scorpius.

[[File:Full-robbie-coltrane-25274414.jpg|226x226px|thumb|left|[[Rubeus Hagrid]], her friend and professor]]
+
Hermione first learned about Lord Voldemort, the most dangerous [[Dark Wizard]] of all time, after reading about him sometime before she began attending [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]]. During her first year, she and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] helped [[Harry Potter]] reach the [[Philosopher's Stone]] and protect it from Voldemort.
   
Rubeus Hagrid was the [[Keeper of Keys and Grounds|Gamekeeper]] and [[Care of Magical Creatures]] professor at Hogwarts, as well as a member of the [[Order of the Phoenix]] during the [[First Wizarding War|First]] and [[Second Wizarding War]]s. Since Hagrid had met [[Harry Potter]] prior to the start of Hermione's first year at Hogwarts, Hermione grew closer to Hagrid as her friendship with Harry developed, eventually coming to visit him in his [[Rubeus Hagrid's cabin|hut]] regularly with Harry and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]]. In their second year, Hagrid comforted Hermione when she was called a "''a filthy little mudblood''" by Draco Malfoy.
+
A year later, Hermione, after fully recovering from her Polyjuice mishap, was shown [[T. M. Riddle's Diary]] by Harry. At first enthusiastic that the book might have "magical powers", Hermione first came up with the theory that it was Tom Riddle who originally "caught" the "Heir of Slytherin" when the [[Chamber of Secrets]] had been opened fifty years prior. She also correctly guessed that the Diary contained the answers to the Chamber's location, how to open it, and the true identity of Slytherin's monster. Thinking that the Diary was written in invisible ink, the attempted to use the spell ''[[Revealing Charm|Aparecium]]'', and then a [[Revealer]], on the object, but to no effect. Later on, when Harry went to the trophy room to try to learn more about Tom Riddle, he was accompanied by an "interested" Hermione. When Ron compared Riddle to Percy "in disgust", mentioning the former as being "''Prefect, Head Boy... probably at the top of every class''", Hermione responded in a "slightly hurt" voice, "''You say that like it's a bad thing''."
   
Though she disapproved of Hagrid's penchant for collecting dangerous [[Creature|pets]], she tended to more pro-actively support him in his efforts to care for them than Harry and Ron, as when Hagrid was attempting to appeal the execution of [[Buckbeak]] and raise his half-brother [[Grawp]]. In turn, it was Hagrid who encouraged Ron and Harry to re-think their treatment of Hermione when the three had a brief falling out over Hermione getting Harry's new [[Firebolt]] confiscated in their third year. When [[Dolores Umbridge]] threatened Hagrid's job during the 1995-1996 school year, Hermione advised him to teach only materials related to their O.W.Ls, so as not to give Umbridge any excuse to fire him, and worked tirelessly to keep him on track.
+
Later on, she also correctly deduced that Riddle had "caught the wrong person", and that "''it was some other monster'' [not Hagrid's [[Acromantula]], [[Aragog]]] ''that was killing people''". Later on, after Harry mentioned "hearing the voice" again before the Quidditch match between Gryffindor and Hufflepuff, Hermione ran immediately to the Library to research, where realised that Slytherin's monster was a basilisk. Tearing the page out of the book, and putting it in her right hand, she left the Library, where she warned the first person she met, Penelope Clearwater, to look around corners with her mirror. However, both Hermione and Penelope were petrified by [[Salazar Slytherin's Basilisk]], which was controlled by Tom Riddle's memory.
   
Hagrid remained close to the trio throughout their time at Hogwarts, and fought various battles in the course of the [[Second Wizarding War]]. In [[2017]], Harry's sons planned to meet Hagrid in his hut for tea soon after arriving at school, and it's very likely that Hermione and Ron's [[Rose Granger-Weasley|daughter]] would have been joining them.
+
In [[1995]], she learned that the Dark Lord had returned and supported Harry against the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry]]'s denial and smear campaign. She also fought in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]] to prevent Voldemort from obtaining a vital [[Sybill Trelawney's first prophecy|prophecy]], but was severely injured and rendered unconscious. In [[1997]], she left Hogwarts to help Harry and Ron find and destroy Voldemort's horcruxes. She personally destroyed [[Helga Hufflepuff's Cup]] using a [[Salazar Slytherin's Basilisk|basilisk]]'s fang. She later witnessed Harry's defeat of Voldemort in the [[Battle of Hogwarts]].
   
===Remus Lupin===
+
However, Hermione made very little direct contact with Voldemort, truly seeing him for the first time during the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]]. Possibly the closest connection Hermione and Voldemort shared was through the former wearing [[Salazar Slytherin's Locket]] whilst travelling with [[Harry Potter]] and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] in 1997. The [[Horcrux]] locket was worn by all three for regular, though limited, periods of time, inadvertently allowing the portion of soul within to access the wearer's thoughts, emotions and deepest fears. The Horcrux had learned enough about Hermione to use hers and Harry's likenesses in emotionally torturing Ron, reflecting Ron's deepest fears of Hermione preferring Harry to him. Because the Horcrux had become so disconnected from the once whole soul of [[Tom Riddle]], the physically bodied Voldemort was not aware of any of these events, nor of the information the Horcrux had gained dangling around the necks of Harry and his closest friends.

Although they had very little direct contact, Hermione and Voldemort are sometimes similar: both are "''model students''" who achieved outstanding grades in NEWTS. Both were Prefects, although Voldemort was Head Boy while Hermione skipped school during what would have been her seventh year due to political persecution, preventing her from being Head Girl that year (it is possible that Hermione became Head Girl when she went back to finish her seventh year after Voldemort's final destruction). They both came from Muggle backgrounds, but Voldemort was raised in an orphanage while Hermione was brought up in a loving Muggle family.
   
Hermione was among the students who were very impressed by Remus Lupin's teaching in 1993, when he was appointed [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] professor. Hermione deduced he was a [[werewolf]] during the school year, yet chose to keep it a secret in order to respect his privacy. Towards the end of the year, however, Lupin admitted that he was a werewolf to Harry, Ron and Hermione whilst in the [[Shrieking Shack]]. Following the events in this dilapidated building, Lupin became fully prepared to help [[Sirius Black]] kill [[Peter Pettigrew]], the wizard who betrayed [[James Potter I|James]] and [[Lily J. Potter|Lily Potter]] to [[Tom Riddle|Voldemort]].

However, thanks to Harry's intervention, they chose not to commit the murder, inadvertently allowing Pettigrew to escape. Lupin had referred to Hermione as the cleverest witch of her age he had ever seen before to this. Hermione, meanwhile, did not concern herself with Lupin's lycanthropy, she judged him only by his good nature and the content of his character.
+
Bellatrix Lestrange was one of [[Tom Riddle|Voldemort]]'s most fanatically loyal followers; Hermione initially knew her as one of the [[Death Eaters]] involved in torturing and permanently incapacitating [[Frank Longbottom|Frank]] and [[Alice Longbottom]], though she also witnessed Bellatrix murder [[Sirius Black]] at the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]], in [[1996]].
   
Hermione met Lupin again in 1995 at the [[12 Grimmauld Place|Headquarters]] of the [[Order of the Phoenix]]. She and Lupin both fought against the [[Death Eaters]] during the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]] in 1996, and survived (despite Hermione being side-swiped by Dolohov's curse). They also fought in the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]] and the [[Battle of the Seven Potters]] alongside, both emerging alive and relatively unscathed on the two occasions. Hermione was pleased to learn that Lupin had married [[Nymphadora Tonks]] before the Battle of the Seven Potters began, and became even more joyful at the news of Lupin's son, [[Edward Lupin|Ted Lupin]], being born; joining in on the celebratory festivities at [[Shell Cottage]]. Hermione was devastated by Lupin's and Tonks' [[death]]s in 1998, becoming friendly with their orphaned son, [[Edward Lupin|Teddy Lupin]], later on in life.
+
During the [[Skirmish at Malfoy Manor]], Bellatrix chose to torture Hermione, who, as a Muggle-born, Bellatrix felt was most dispensable (though, as a "''blood traitor,''" Ron Weasley was a close second), in order to discover where and how the trio had managed to acquire [[Godric Gryffindor's Sword]]. During the interrogation, Bellatrix used her knife to carve the word "''mudblood''" on Hermione's arm,<ref name="DHF1">{{DH|F1}}</ref> as well as torturing her sadistically with the [[Cruciatus Curse]].<ref name="DH" /> Hermione later used one of Bellatrix's hairs obtained in the skirmish to make [[Polyjuice Potion]] and [[Break-in of Gringotts Wizarding Bank (1998)|break into]] the [[Lestrange Vault]] at [[Gringotts Wizarding Bank]]. She expressed disgust at having to  use Bellatrix's wand knowing the crimes Bellatrix commited with it. Hermione, [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]], and [[Luna Lovegood|Luna]] duelled against Bellatrix during the final battle, but were made to stand aside by [[Molly Weasley]], who eventually killed Bellatrix herself.

+
[[File:Draco Malfoy (HBP promo).jpg|243x243px|thumb|[[Draco Malfoy]], her school bully]]
   
Hermione first learned about Sirius Black in [[1993]], when he escaped [[Azkaban]]. The wizarding world at large knew of him as the wizard who murdered twelve Muggles and a wizard ([[Peter Pettigrew]]) with a single curse. Very few knew of his affiliation with the Potters and those who did also believed that Sirius had betrayed [[James Potter I|James]] and [[Lily J. Potter|Lily Potter]] to Voldemort by revealing their location at [[Godric's Hollow]]. During the events at Hogwarts in [[1993]], Hermione along with Harry, Ron and Lupin discovered that, contrary to their previous beliefs, Sirius Black had never committed the murders for which he had been incarcerated, nor had he betrayed his closest friends.
+
Draco Malfoy, of an old and wealthy [[pure-blood]] [[Malfoy family|family]] with [[Death Eaters|Death Eater]] ties, was raised to believe in the inferiority of [[Muggle-born]]s, and thus treated Hermione with disdain. This was probably exacerbated by Hermione's friendship with Harry and Ron, who shared a strong enmity with Draco from virtually the moment they met, and her beating Draco in school marks, for which his [[Lucius Malfoy|father]] berated him.<ref name="CS" /> Draco frequently called Hermione the disparaging term "[[Mudblood]]," which usually set off the tempers of her friends — and the entire [[Gryffindor]] [[Quidditch team]] when he first said it to her face in [[1992]]<ref name="CS" /> but Hermione tended to ignore Draco and urged Harry and Ron to do the same.
   
The trio managed to save Sirius and Lupin from being subjected to the [[Dementor's Kiss]] at the hands of [[Severus Snape]] by firing three simultaneous [[Disarming Charm]]s at him. Snape was blasted off his feet and knocked unconscious, allowing Harry, Ron and Hermione to continue their interrogation of Sirius who later revealed that Pettigrew had disguised himself in his rat [[Animagus]] form for twelve years in order to escape justice and the wrath of Voldemort's remaining Death Eaters. However, upon exiting the [[Whomping Willow]]'s secret passageway together, Pettigrew shrewdly used Lupin's werewolf transformation as a distraction and escaped. Sirius was soon apprehended and locked in [[Filius Flitwick]]'s office to await the Dementor's Kiss. Harry and Hermione would later use the latter's [[Time-Turner]] to [[Rescue of Sirius Black and Buckbeak|rescue]] Sirius, who became deeply grateful to both of them.
+
Occasionally she would snap back at him, and in their third year, she even slapped<!-- ATTENTION: DON'T change this to "punched." Within the wiki canon policy, the books supersede the films. Hermione never punched him in the book.--> him when he mocked [[Rubeus Hagrid]] for being upset over the impending execution of [[Buckbeak]], for which Draco was largely responsible.<ref name="POA" />
   
In [[1994]], Hermione, Harry, and Ron visited Sirius at the cave off [[Hogsmeade]] village he was hiding in, bringing him food. Here they discussed the many mysteries that had occurred during that year, the trio learning valuable pieces of information regarding the imprisonment of [[Bartemius Crouch Junior|Barty Crouch Jr]] After the events of the Third Task, Sirius (while in his Animagus form) joined Hermione, Ron and [[Molly Weasley]] at Harry's bedside, each indicating their affections for the latter.
+
In spite of his prejudice and dislike toward Hermione, Draco was reluctant to confirm her identity when he was asked to do so by his parents and aunt [[Bellatrix Lestrange|Bellatrix]] in [[1998]], avoiding even looking at her. As an adult sobered by his wartime experiences, Draco was civil towards Hermione and her friends, and friendly with her nephew, Albus Potter.<ref name="DH" />He even found the idea of taking orders from her during their ambush in 1981 of Delphini to be darkly humorous. Draco's civility towards Hermione during this time was likely reinforced due to her being the Minister For Magic in Britain at the time, and possibly due to her relations to Albus Potter, the best friend of his own son, Scorpius.
   
Hermione and Sirius would not meet again until the summer of [[1995]], at the Headquarters of the second [[Order of the Phoenix]]. Sirius was obliged to remain in [[12 Grimmauld Place]] for his own safety (his innocence not yet recognised by the Ministry). Sirius was rather disappointed when Harry was allowed to return to Hogwarts, Hermione pointing out that he had probably been secretly wishing that Harry had been expelled from school so that they could both stay at Grimmauld Place and be "''outcasts together''". Hermione expressed an even deeper understanding of Sirius's emotions when she stated her opinion to Harry that Sirius was attempting to relive his happier school days through his godson. Harry ignored this and became slightly agitated at the suggestion that Sirius might be guilty of such a crude, selfish mentality. However, she severely disapproved of his indifferent and occasionally cruel treatment of his [[house-elf]], [[Kreacher]], despite the fact that Kreacher initially appeared to be disgusted by her and addressed her as "the [[Mudblood]]" (which Hermione often attributed to Kreacher being senile due to his old age.)

She also thought that Sirius was attempting to live vicariously through her, Harry and Ron when he encouraged them to form Dumbledore's Army, but the two boys became angry and snapped at her when she expressed this belief. Sirius was eventually killed by [[Bellatrix Lestrange]] in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]], much to the dismay of his friends and loved ones. Hermione was devastated by his death, and often tried to provide comfort to Harry, who had been even more deeply affected by the tragedy. At the end of the [[Second Wizarding War]], Hermione became godmother to Harry's eldest son, [[James Potter II|James Sirius]], whose first and middle name was derived from James Potter and Sirius Black respectively.

===Severus Snape===
+
[[Pansy Parkinson]] was more or less Hermione's polar opposite: where Hermione was compassionate (as seen when she founded [[Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare|SPEW]]), independent, and incredibly helpful to nearly anyone who needed it, Pansy was petty and spiteful, who mocked just about every non-Slytherin student she encountered (as well as [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]]), and was little more than one of Draco Malfoy's more sycophantic [[Draco Malfoy's gang|lackeys]]. Pansy had a tendency to taunt and snipe at Hermione, [[Harry Potter|Harry]], and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] at any given opportunity, though Hermione rarely seemed more than slightly irritated by her comments; the major exception to that most likely would have been Pansy's attempt to surrender Harry to [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] shortly prior to the start of the [[Battle of Hogwarts]]. Hermione had a scathing opinion of Pansy, believing her to be be a "cow", and "thicker than a concussed troll".<ref name="OOTP" />

Severus Snape was the [[Potions (class)|Potions]] [[Potions Master|Master]] during most of Hermione's time at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]]. He was also the [[Head of Slytherin House]], and tended to openly show preferential treatment for the students of his own house, while being quick to criticise and deduct points from [[Gryffindor]] students. He was particularly unpleasant towards the trio, and regularly punished and verbally assaulted Harry and Ron for their poor to mediocre performances in his class. He could not do the same to Hermione, as she was the best student in the year and instead mocked her for things like being an "''insufferable know-it-all,''" once even snidely insulting the size of Hermione's teeth.<ref name="GOF" />
+
====Rita Skeeter====
  +
{{Quote|I ''hate'' that Skeeter woman! I'll get her back for this if it's the last thing I do!| Hermione vows retribution against Rita Skeeter|Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire}}
   
Despite his pre-existing dislike for Gryffindor,<ref name="DH" /> Snape's treatment of Hermione likely had more to do with her close friendship with Harry. Despite this, Hermione was still seen to defend Snape on occasion when Harry and Ron blamed him for evil deeds which occurred in [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], like setting the troll in the dungeon and trying to steal the Philosopher's Stone in Harry's first year. In her fifth year she defended Snape while Ron expressed distrust of him, citing the number of times they were wrong about Snape wanting to harm them. After Dumbledore's death, she like many, believed that Snape was a coward who killed a man who trusted him more than anyone. It is unknown exactly how she reacted to learning of Snape's true motives and allegiance, but given her personality, it is highly likely that she came to both forgive her former Professor's cruelty, and even admire him for his bravery.

While covering the [[Triwizard Tournament]] in Hermione's fourth year, [[Daily Prophet]] journalist [[Rita Skeeter]] wrote a number of exaggerated and slanderous stories about [[Harry Potter]] and his friends, including one that outed [[Rubeus Hagrid]] as a [[half-giant]]. Harry and Hermione angrily confronted Rita about this. After Hermione insulted her, Rita published another article that portrayed Hermione as manipulative and ambitious, claiming that she was toying with the emotions of both Harry Potter and [[Viktor Krum]]. This resulted in Hermione receiving several letters of hate mail, including a few [[Howler]]s and at least one envelope filled with [[bubotuber pus]].

As with most aspects of the [[wizarding world]], Hermione read about [[Albus Dumbledore]] shortly after learning that she was a [[Wizardkind|witch]]. Hermione on her very first tarin journey revealed she wanted to be in Gryffindore becauise it was the house that Dumbledore belonged to. She first met the Hogwarts headmaster during her her first year at the school, in [[1991]], and quickly came to respect Dumbledore's immense power and seemingly infinite wisdom. Although Dumbledore was not as close with her as he was with [[Harry Potter]], he showed great insight into her character very early on. She was one of only three students Dumbledore bequeathed a personal item, as he believed her to be, along with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]], trustworthy of accompanying Harry on his mission to destroy [[Tom Riddle|Voldemort]]'s [[Horcrux]]es.
+
Hermione became obsessed with getting back at Rita and uncovering how she was getting all of her information. Finally, near the end of the school year Hermione realised that Rita Skeeter was an unregistered [[Animagus]]. She caught Rita in her beetle form attempting to eavesdrop on Harry in the [[Hospital Wing]] after the [[Triwizard Tournament|Third Task]]. Hermione sealed her inside a small bottle. Hermione blackmailed Rita into giving up writing for one year, otherwise her unregistered status would be revealed. As the penalties are apparently quite severe, Rita had no choice but to comply.
   
He respected her intellect, perspicacity, and level-headedness, admitting to Harry that he had counted on Hermione to keep things in perspective when the trio finally discovered the existence of the [[Deathly Hallows]]. Hermione was devastated when Dumbledore was killed, and visited his [[Albus Dumbledore's portrait|portrait]] with Harry and Ron after the [[Battle of Hogwarts]] to determine the fate of the Hallows.
+
When the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]] began using the ''[[Daily Prophet]]'' in its smear campaign against Harry, Hermione was again able to blackmail Rita, this time into writing an article for ''[[The Quibbler]]'' that would allow Harry to tell his side of the story. After her one year punishment was over, Rita went back to writing with as much enthusiasm and as little scruples as she had before, although it's unknown if she ever crossed Hermione again. Given her notable lack of commentary regarding Hermione during the 2014 Quidditch World Cup in Egypt, it is likely that Rita remained extremely wary of Hermione's wrath 19 years following her being blackmailed by the prodigious witch.

{{Quote|I also think we should have a name... It would promote a feeling of team spirit and unity, don't you think?|Hermione on naming the Army|Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix}}
   
[[Crookshanks]] was Hermione's large, bandy-legged, half-[[Kneazle]], ginger-coloured pet cat since she bought him from the [[Magical Menagerie]] in [[Diagon Alley]], in [[1993]]. She seemed to think he was gorgeous, although no one else had wanted to buy him when he was still being sold at the Menagerie. She was proud of his cleverness. The latter proved to be quite true during the [[1993-1994 school year]].
+
[[File:Dumbledore%27s_Army.jpg|240x240px|thumb|left|[[Dumbledore's Army]], her allies]]
   
Crookshanks recognised that Hermione had left him at [[the Burrow]] before Bill and Fleur's [[Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour|wedding]] in [[1997]], most likely had been left in care of Mrs Weasley or Ginny, but it is possible that they were reunited after the Second War given the deep care and affection they had for each other.
+
Dumbledore's Army was essentially Hermione's brainchild, though she co-founded it with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] and [[Harry Potter|Harry]] during the [[1995–1996 school year]]. After [[Dolores Umbridge]] informed her [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] students that they would not be using any magic, claiming a theoretical education would suffice, a furious Hermione (fearful of being ill-equipped to deal with the reborn [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] and the upcoming [[Ordinary Wizarding Level|O.W.L.]]s) conceived of the organisation as a means of allowing any student interested in actually practising defensive magic to do so. Though the secret classes were taught by Harry, Hermione arranged the initial meeting at the [[Hog's Head]], created the DA's method of covert [[Dumbledore's Army coin|communication]], and [[Dumbledore's Army parchment jinx|jinxed]] their member list to reveal any betrayal.
   
===Cormac McLaggen===
+
All of the DA members grew closer over the course of the year (with the exceptions of [[Marietta Edgecombe]], who betrayed the DA to Umbridge, and later [[Zacharias Smith]], who deserted them), as evidenced by their reunion in [[1997]], and their enthusiasm in supporting Harry and mobilising against the invading Death Eaters during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]]. Moreover, the DA truly cemented Hermione's friendships with [[Luna Lovegood]] and [[Neville Longbottom]], who were the only members, aside from [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]], to fight alongside Hermione, Harry, and Ron at the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]] and the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]].

[[File:Mclaggen.jpg|252x252px|thumb|left|Cormac McLaggen]]
+
Hermione's relationship with was two-side was two-sided; while Hermione gave Harry advice on how to build a successful relationship with Cho, Cho grew increasingly jealous of Harry's close friendship with Hermione, believing that the two of them were romantically involved. Because of this, Cho went into a dramatic and tear-filled departure from her date with Harry when he mentioned that he promised to meet with Hermione, who would later comment sadly on how Harry went the wrong way on telling Cho about the appointed meeting. When Cho attempted to insult Hermione for s Army parchment jinx|jinxing]] her friend [ her friend gecombe]] for betrayin for betraying DA, Harry defended her and in turn insulted Marietta. However, when Hermione returned to Hogwarts during the last stand against Voldemort, any negative feelings for each other seemed to have evaporated, as Cho welcomed the trio.
   
[[Cormac McLaggen]] was a [[Gryffindor]] student one year above Hermione. The two became acquainted in [[1996]] through the [[Slug Club]], of which they were both members, though Hermione did not think highly of McLaggen. When she overheard him insulting [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]] during [[Quidditch]] try-outs, Hermione struck him with the [[Confundus Charm]], undermining his abilities as a [[Keeper]].

Later in the year, when Hermione was furious with Ron for dating [[Lavender Brown]], she decided to attend [[Horace Slughorn|Professor Slughorn]]'s [[Slug Club Christmas party|Christmas party]] with McLaggen because she knew Ron despised him. McLaggen was apparently interested in Hermione, as he escorted her to the party and was very forward with her romantically while there. This, as well as his tendency to boast about himself, put Hermione off, and she soon abandoned him for the company of [[Harry Potter|Harry]] and [[Luna Lovegood|Luna]] before leaving the party altogether to avoid him.<ref name="HBP" /> It can be assumed that the party was the end of their interaction.

===Pansy Parkinson===

Hermione first heard about the Order of the Phoenix in 1995, when she, [[Harry Potter|Harry]] and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] spent several weeks at [[12 Grimmauld Place|the Order's headquarters]]. Through her time at Grimmauld Place, Hermione got to know [[Alastor Moody]], the most famous [[Auror]] of modern times, known for rounding up several [[Death Eaters]] after the [[First Wizarding War]] and for his growing paranoia. He and Hermione fought together in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]], and later, in the [[Battle of the Seven Potters]], where Moody was killed by Voldemort's own hand. Hermione, like the rest of the Order, was shocked and horrified by the death of such a skilled Auror, "''the consummate survivor'',"<ref name="DH" /> and disgusted by [[Mundungus Fletcher]]'s desertion. Hermione, who had known Fletcher as a petty criminal who had stolen a number the Black family heirlooms shortly after [[Sirius Black]]'s death, aside from being a member of the Order, took part in interrogating Fletcher, when she, Harry and Ron realised [[Salazar Slytherin's Locket]] had been among the items stolen from Grimmauld Place.

Hermione had great respect for [[Kingsley Shacklebolt]], a skilled Auror and eventual [[Minister for Magic]], who was known as "Royal" on ''[[Potterwatch]]'', and who saved countless lives (including Hermione, Ron and Harry's) when he sent his [[Patronus Charm|Patronus]] to warn the attendees of [[Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour|Bill and Fleur's wedding]] that the Ministry had fallen, and with it, the protections surrounding [[the Burrow]]. Another member of the Order responsible for saving the trio was [[Aberforth Dumbledore]], Albus' younger brother. Though Hermione, Harry and Ron had known him for some time as the owner of the [[Hog's Head|Hog's Head Pub]], they finally met him in [[1998]], just before the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], when he just barely managed to get them out a trap set by [[Death Eaters]]. Prior to that, he sent Dobby to rescue them, along with [[Dean Thomas]], [[Luna Lovegood]], [[Garrick Ollivander]] and [[Griphook]] the Goblin, from the [[Skirmish at Malfoy Manor|Malfoy Manor]]; as it turned out, Aberforth had acquired Sirius Black's [[two-way mirror]] from Mundungus Fletcher, and been keeping an eye out for Harry.
   
[[Pansy Parkinson]] was more or less Hermione's polar opposite: where Hermione was compassionate (i.e. [[Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare|SPEW]]), independent, and incredibly helpful to nearly anyone who needed it, Pansy was petty, mocked just about every non-Slytherin student she encountered (as well as [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]]), and was little more than one of Draco Malfoy's more sycophantic [[Draco Malfoy's gang|lackeys]].

+
[[Nymphadora Tonks]], a funny, [[Metamorphmagus]] witch, who had become a good friend of Hermione's, died along with her husband and fellow member of the Order, [[Remus Lupin]], during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]]. As their son, [[Edward Lupin|Ted Lupin]], was Harry's godson and was also dating Hermione's niece, [[Victoire Weasley|Victoire]] by 2017, it's likely Hermione remained quite close to him.

When the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]] began using the ''[[Daily Prophet]]'' in its smear campaign against Harry, Hermione was again able to blackmail Rita, this time into writing an article for ''[[The Quibbler]]'' that would allow Harry to tell his side of the story. After her one year punishment was over, Rita went back to writing with as much enthusiasm and as little scruples as she had before, although it's unknown if she ever crossed Hermione again. Given her notable lack of commentary regarding Hermione during the 2014 Quidditch World Cup in Egypt, it is likely that Rita remained extremely wary of Hermione's wrath 19 years following her being blackmailed by the prodigious witch.

===Dolores Umbridge===
+
Rubeus Hagrid was the [[Keeper of Keys and Grounds|Gamekeeper]] and [[Care of Magical Creatures]] professor at Hogwarts, as well as a member of the [[Order of the Phoenix]] during the [[First Wizarding War|First]] and [[Second Wizarding War]]s. Since Hagrid had met [[Harry Potter]] prior to the start of Hermione's first year at Hogwarts, Hermione grew closer to Hagrid as her friendship with Harry developed, eventually coming to visit him in his [[Rubeus Hagrid's cabin|hut]] regularly with Harry and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]]. In their second year, Hagrid comforted Hermione when she was called a "''a filthy little mudblood''" by Draco Malfoy.

[[File:Dolores Umbridge.jpg|220x220px|thumb|right|[[Dolores Umbridge]], her former professor and enemy]]
+
Though she disapproved of Hagrid's penchant for collecting dangerous [[Creature|pets]], she tended to more pro-actively support him in his efforts to care for them than Harry and Ron, as when Hagrid was attempting to appeal the execution of [[Buckbeak]] and raise his half-brother [[Grawp]]. In turn, it was Hagrid who encouraged Ron and Harry to re-think their treatment of Hermione when the three had a brief falling out over Hermione getting Harry's new [[Firebolt]] confiscated in their third year. When [[Dolores Umbridge]] threatened Hagrid's job during the 1995-1996 school year, Hermione advised him to teach only materials related to their O.W.Ls, so as not to give Umbridge any excuse to fire him, and worked tirelessly to keep him on track.
   
Dolores Umbridge was appointed [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] professor by the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]], in [[1995]]. She was a sadistic woman who enjoyed punishing and torturing students using the [[Black Quill]], most notably when she forced [[Harry Potter]] to carve ''"I must not tell lies''" into the back of his own hand. Umbridge was as obsessed with blood-status as the [[Death Eaters]], and had a particular hatred of what she called "''half-breeds''." Hermione, like most of the students and staff at Hogwarts, hated Umbridge. Hermione was one of the first to pick up on the true motives behind Umbridge's appointment at the magical school. In turn, Umbridge was not too fond of Hermione, who was not only [[Muggle-born]], but was also probably far too perceptive for her liking, as well as being outspokenly opposed to a purely theoretical [[Defence Against the Dark Arts|defensive]] magical education.
+
Hagrid remained close to the trio throughout their time at Hogwarts, and fought various battles in the course of the [[Second Wizarding War]]. In [[2017]], Harry's sons planned to meet Hagrid in his hut for tea soon after arriving at school, and it's very likely that Hermione and Ron's [[Rose Granger-Weasley|daughter]] would have been joining them.
   
When Umbridge planned to use [[Veritaserum]] and then the [[Cruciatus Curse]] on Harry, Hermione was the one who came up with the lie that led to them venturing into the [[Forbidden Forest]] and Umbridge eventually being dragged away by a [[Forbidden Forest Centaur colony|herd of offended centaurs]].
+
====Remus Lupin====
  +
{{Dialogue a-b|Hermione|Harry! How could you?|Ron Weasley |You shouldn't have said that stuff to Lupin.|Hermione and Ron, after Harry yells at Remus for leaving his wife|Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows}}
   
Hermione next met Umbridge a second time at the Ministry of Magic in 1997, when Hermione was disguised as [[Mafalda Hopkirk]] through the usage of [[Polyjuice Potion]]. Umbridge was, at the time, interrogating "Mudblood" witches and wizards, prior to sending them to [[Azkaban]]. Harry stunned Umbridge and retrieved [[Salazar Slytherin's Locket]], one of Voldemort's hocruxes which Umbridge had taken from [[Mundungus Fletcher]] and was attempting to pass off as a family heirloom and proof of her relation to the [[Selwyn family]]. Hermione replaced the locket by duplicating it with the Geminio spell so Umbridge would not know that it had been taken from her. The trio proceeded to free all the Muggle-Borns awaiting interrogation.
+
[[File:Remus Lupin Deathly Hallows promo image.jpg|220x220px|thumb|[[Remus Lupin]], her professor and friend]]
   
Suffice it to say that Umbridge personified everything that Hermione detested and loathed in Wizarding society, including but not limited to racial prejudice, sadism, malicious misuse of power, authoritarianism, and pure-blood supremacy.
+
Hermione was among the students who were very impressed by Remus Lupin's teaching in 1993, when he was appointed [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] professor. Hermione deduced he was a [[werewolf]] during the school year, yet chose to keep it a secret in order to respect his privacy. Towards the end of the year, however, Lupin admitted that he was a werewolf to Harry, Ron and Hermione whilst in the [[Shrieking Shack]]. Following the events in this dilapidated building, Lupin became fully prepared to help [[Sirius Black]] kill [[Peter Pettigrew]], the wizard who betrayed [[James Potter I|James]] and [[Lily J. Potter|Lily Potter]] to [[Tom Riddle|Voldemort]].
   
===Lord Voldemort===
+
However, thanks to Harry's intervention, they chose not to commit the murder, inadvertently allowing Pettigrew to escape. Lupin had referred to Hermione as the cleverest witch of her age he had ever seen before to this. Hermione, meanwhile, did not concern herself with Lupin's lycanthropy, she judged him only by his good nature and the content of his character.

+
Hermione met Lupin again in 1995 at the [[12 Grimmauld Place|Headquarters]] of the [[Order of the Phoenix]]. She and Lupin both fought against the [[Death Eaters]] during the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]] in 1996, and survived (despite Hermione being side-swiped by Dolohov's curse). They also fought in the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]] and the [[Battle of the Seven Potters]] alongside, both emerging alive and relatively unscathed on the two occasions. Hermione was pleased to learn that Lupin had married [[Nymphadora Tonks]] before the Battle of the Seven Potters began, and became even more joyful at the news of Lupin's son, [[Edward Lupin|Ted Lupin]], being born; joining in on the celebratory festivities at [[Shell Cottage]]. Hermione was devastated by Lupin's and Tonks' [[death]]s in 1998, becoming friendly with their orphaned son, [[Edward Lupin|Teddy Lupin]], later on in life.
   
Hermione first learned about Lord Voldemort, the most dangerous [[Dark Wizard]] of all time, after reading about him sometime before she began attending [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]] . During her first year, she and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] helped [[Harry Potter]] reach the [[Philosopher's Stone]] and protect it from Voldemort.
+
====Minerva McGonagall====
  +
{{Dialogue a-b-a|Professor McGonagall|Potter! Weasley! What are you doing?|Harry Potter|Hermione. We haven't seen her for ages, Professor, and we thought we'd sneak into the hospital wing, you know, and tell her the Mandrakes are nearly ready and, er, not to worry.|Of course.

Yes, Potter, of course you may visit Miss Granger, I will inform Professor Binns where you've gone. Tell Madam Pomfrey I have given you permission.|Professor Minerva McGonagall softening when Harry and Ron tell her they want to visit Hermione|Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets}}
   
A year later, Hermione, after fully recovering from her Polyjuice mishap, was shown [[T. M. Riddle's Diary]] by Harry. At first enthusiastic that the book might have "magical powers", Hermione first came up with the theory that it was Tom Riddle who originally "caught" the "Heir of Slytherin" when the [[Chamber of Secrets]] had been opened fifty years prior. She also correctly guessed that the Diary contained the answers to the Chamber's location, how to open it, and the true identity of Slytherin's monster. Thinking that the Diary was written in invisible ink, the attempted to use the spell ''[[Revealing Charm|Aparecium]]'', and then a [[Revealer]], on the object, but to no effect. Later on, when Harry went to the trophy room to try to learn more about Tom Riddle, he was accompanied by an "interested" Hermione. When Ron compared Riddle to Percy "in disgust", mentioning the former as being "''Prefect, Head Boy... probably at the top of every class''", Hermione responded in a "slightly hurt" voice, "''You say that like it's a bad thing''."
+
[[File:Mcgonagall.jpg|227x227px|thumb|[[Minerva McGonagall]], her Head of House and professor]]
   
Later on, she also correctly deduced that Riddle had "caught the wrong person", and that "''it was some other monster'' [not Hagrid's [[Acromantula]], [[Aragog]]] ''that was killing people''". Later on, after Harry mentioned "hearing the voice" again before the Quidditch match between Gryffindor and Hufflepuff, Hermione ran immediately to the Library to research, where realised that Slytherin's monster was a basilisk. Tearing the page out of the book, and putting it in her right hand, she left the Library, where she warned the first person she met, Penelope Clearwater, to look around corners with her mirror. However, both Hermione and Penelope were petrified by [[Salazar Slytherin's Basilisk]], which was controlled by Tom Riddle's memory.
+
Professor Minerva McGonagall took a shine to Hermione from the first class she had with her, granting the first-year student in [[Gryffindor|her house]] one of her "''rare smiles''" when Hermione successfully [[Transfiguration|transfigured]] a match into a needle early on in the lesson and long before any other student. She had high expectations for Hermione, and was thus disappointed in her when Hermione claimed she tried to fight the [[troll]] that entered the school in [[1991]] on her own, in order to cover up for Harry and Ron. Whenever Hermione and her friends would get into trouble, McGonagall almost inevitably looked to Hermione to be the most sensible one.<ref name="PS" />
   
In [[1995]], she learned that the Dark Lord had returned and supported Harry against the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry]]'s denial and smear campaign. She also fought in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]] to prevent Voldemort from obtaining a vital [[Sybill Trelawney's first prophecy|prophecy]], but was severely injured and rendered unconscious. In [[1997]], she left Hogwarts to help Harry and Ron find and destroy Voldemort's horcruxes. She personally destroyed [[Helga Hufflepuff's Cup]] using a [[Salazar Slytherin's Basilisk|basilisk]]'s fang. She later witnessed Harry's defeat of Voldemort in the [[Battle of Hogwarts]].
+
McGonagall was noticeably upset when Hermione was [[petrification|petrified]] in [[1993]], even granting Harry and Ron permission to skip a class so they could visit Hermione in the hospital wing.<ref name="CS" /> The [[1993–1994 school year|following school year]], she helped arrange for Hermione to be granted a [[Time-Turner]] to take extra classes.<ref name="POA" /> When the professor was injured with four [[Stunning Spell]]s in [[1996]], Hermione was very upset and worried for her.<ref name="OOTP" /> Hermione seemed to regard her head of house as a role model, while Professor McGonagall, in spite of her sternness, was obviously quite fond of Hermione and expected great things of her.
   
However, Hermione made very little direct contact with Voldemort, truly seeing him for the first time during the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]]. Possibly the closest connection Hermione and Voldemort shared was through the former wearing [[Salazar Slytherin's Locket]] whilst travelling with [[Harry Potter]] and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] in 1997. The [[Horcrux]] locket was worn by all three for regular, though limited, periods of time, inadvertently allowing the portion of soul within to access the wearer's thoughts, emotions and deepest fears. The Horcrux had learned enough about Hermione to use hers and Harry's likenesses in emotionally torturing Ron, reflecting Ron's deepest fears of Hermione preferring Harry to him. Because the Horcrux had become so disconnected from the once whole soul of [[Tom Riddle]], the physically bodied Voldemort was not aware of any of these events, nor of the information the Horcrux had gained dangling around the necks of Harry and his closest friends.
+
Later, after McGonagall became headmistress of Hogwarts and Hermione became a member of the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]], McGonagall granted her permission to use notes left to the Hogwarts Archives, written by [[Albus Dumbledore]], in her re-translation of {{TBB}}, demonstrating McGonagall's trust in her former pupil.
   
Although they had very little direct contact, Hermione and Voldemort are sometimes similar: both are "''model students''" who achieved outstanding grades in NEWTS. Both were Prefects, although Voldemort was Head Boy while Hermione skipped school during what would have been her seventh year due to political persecution, preventing her from being Head Girl that year (it is possible that Hermione became Head Girl when she went back to finish her seventh year after Voldemort's final destruction). They both came from Muggle backgrounds, but Voldemort was raised in an orphanage while Hermione was brought up in a loving Muggle family.
+
====Severus Snape====
  +

  +
[[File:Severus_Snape.jpg|231x231px|thumb|right|[[Severus Snape]], her professor]]
   
===Bellatrix Lestrange===
+
Severus Snape was the [[Potions (class)|Potions]] [[Potions Master|Master]] during most of Hermione's time at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]]. He was also the [[Head of Slytherin House]], and tended to openly show preferential treatment for the students of his own house, while being quick to criticise and deduct points from [[Gryffindor]] students. He was particularly unpleasant towards the trio, and regularly punished and verbally assaulted Harry and Ron for their poor to mediocre performances in his class. He could not do the same to Hermione, as she was the best student in the year and instead mocked her for things like being an "''insufferable know-it-all,''" once even snidely insulting the size of Hermione's teeth.<ref name="GOF" />

''CRUCIO''!|Bellatrix interrogating Hermione|Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows}}
 
[[File:Bellatrix-promo-bellatrix-lestrange-28967541-432-650.jpg|228x228px|thumb|[[Bellatrix Lestrange]], a hated enemy]]
 
   
Bellatrix Lestrange was one of [[Tom Riddle|Voldemort]]'s most fanatically loyal followers; Hermione initially knew her as one of the [[Death Eaters]] involved in torturing and permanently incapacitating [[Frank Longbottom|Frank]] and [[Alice Longbottom]], though she also witnessed Bellatrix murder [[Sirius Black]] at the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]], in [[1996]].
+
Despite his pre-existing dislike for Gryffindor,<ref name="DH" /> Snape's treatment of Hermione likely had more to do with her close friendship with Harry. Despite this, Hermione was still seen to defend Snape on occasion when Harry and Ron blamed him for evil deeds which occurred in [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], like setting the troll in the dungeon and trying to steal the Philosopher's Stone in Harry's first year. In her fifth year she defended Snape while Ron expressed distrust of him, citing the number of times they were wrong about Snape wanting to harm them. After Dumbledore's death, she like many, believed that Snape was a coward who killed a man who trusted him more than anyone. It is unknown exactly how she reacted to learning of Snape's true motives and allegiance, but given her personality, it is highly likely that she came to both forgive her former Professor's cruelty, and even admire him for his bravery.
   
During the [[Skirmish at Malfoy Manor]], Bellatrix chose to torture Hermione, who, as a Muggle-born, Bellatrix felt was most dispensable (though, as a "''blood traitor,''" Ron Weasley was a close second), in order to discover where and how the trio had managed to acquire [[Godric Gryffindor's Sword]]. During the interrogation, Bellatrix used her knife to carve the word "''mudblood''" on Hermione's arm.<ref>{{DH|F}}</ref> Hermione later used one of Bellatrix's hairs obtained in the skirmish to make [[Polyjuice Potion]] and [[Break-in of Gringotts Wizarding Bank (1998)|break into]] the [[Lestrange Vault]] at [[Gringotts Wizarding Bank]]. She expressed disgust at having to  use Bellatrix's wand knowing the crimes Bellatrix commited with it. Hermione, [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]], and [[Luna Lovegood|Luna]] duelled against Bellatrix during the final battle, but were made to stand aside by [[Molly Weasley]], who eventually killed Bellatrix herself.

Dolores Umbridge was appointed [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] professor by the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]], in [[1995]]. She was a sadistic woman who enjoyed punishing and torturing students using the [[Black Quill]], most notably when she forced [[Harry Potter]] to carve ''"I must not tell lies''" into the back of his own hand. Umbridge was as obsessed with blood-status as the [[Death Eaters]], and had a particular hatred of what she called "''half-breeds''." Hermione, like most of the students and staff at Hogwarts, hated Umbridge. Hermione was one of the first to pick up on the true motives behind Umbridge's appointment at the magical school. In turn, Umbridge was not too fond of Hermione, who was not only [[Muggle-born]], but was also probably far too perceptive for her liking, as well as being outspokenly opposed to a purely theoretical [[Defence Against the Dark Arts|defensive]] magical education.
   
Dumbledore's Army was essentially Hermione's brainchild, though she co-founded it with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] and [[Harry Potter|Harry]] during the [[1995–1996 school year]]. After [[Dolores Umbridge]] informed her [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] students that they would not be using any magic, claiming a theoretical education would suffice, a furious Hermione (fearful of being ill-equipped to deal with the reborn [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] and the upcoming [[Ordinary Wizarding Level|O.W.L.]]s) conceived of the organisation as a means of allowing any student interested in actually practising defensive magic to do so. Though the secret classes were taught by Harry, Hermione arranged the initial meeting at the [[Hog's Head]], created the DA's method of covert [[Dumbledore's Army coin|communication]], and [[Dumbledore's Army parchment jinx|jinxed]] their member list to reveal any betrayal.
+
When Umbridge planned to use [[Veritaserum]] and then the [[Cruciatus Curse]] on Harry, Hermione was the one who came up with the lie that led to them venturing into the [[Forbidden Forest]] and Umbridge eventually being dragged away by a [[Forbidden Forest Centaur colony|herd of offended centaurs]].
   
All of the DA members grew closer over the course of the year (with the exceptions of [[Marietta Edgecombe]], who betrayed the DA to Umbridge, and later [[Zacharias Smith]], who deserted them), as evidenced by their reunion in [[1997]], and their enthusiasm in supporting Harry and mobilising against the invading Death Eaters during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]]. Moreover, the DA truly cemented Hermione's friendships with [[Luna Lovegood]] and [[Neville Longbottom]], who were the only members, aside from [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]], to fight alongside Hermione, Harry, and Ron at the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]] and the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]].
+
Hermione next met Umbridge a second time at the Ministry of Magic in 1997, when Hermione was disguised as [[Mafalda Hopkirk]] through the usage of [[Polyjuice Potion]]. Umbridge was, at the time, interrogating "Mudblood" witches and wizards, prior to sending them to [[Azkaban]]. Harry stunned Umbridge and retrieved [[Salazar Slytherin's Locket]], one of Voldemort's hocruxes which Umbridge had taken from [[Mundungus Fletcher]] and was attempting to pass off as a family heirloom and proof of her relation to the [[Selwyn family]]. Hermione replaced the locket by duplicating it with the Geminio spell so Umbridge would not know that it had been taken from her. The trio proceeded to free all the Muggle-Borns awaiting interrogation.
   
Hermione's relationship with [[Cho Chang]] was two-sided; while Hermione gave Harry advice on how to build a successful relationship with Cho, Cho grew increasingly jealous of Harry's close friendship with Hermione, believing that the two of them were romantically involved. Because of this, Cho went into a dramatic and tear-filled departure from her date with Harry when he mentioned that he promised to meet with Hermione, who would later comment sadly on how Harry went the wrong way on telling Cho about the appointed meeting. When Cho attempted to insult Hermione for [[Dumbledore's Army parchment jinx|jinxing]] her friend [[Marietta Edgecombe]] for betraying DA, Harry defended her and in turn insulted Marietta. However, when Hermione returned to Hogwarts during the last stand against Voldemort, any negative feelings for each other seemed to have evaporated, as Cho welcomed the trio.
+
Suffice it to say that Umbridge personified everything that Hermione detested and loathed in Wizarding society, including but not limited to racial prejudice, sadism, malicious misuse of power, authoritarianism, and pure-blood supremacy.
 
===Order of the Phoenix===

[[File:OotP.jpg|250px|thumb|right|The original [[Order of the Phoenix]], her allies]]
 
 
Hermione first heard about the Order of the Phoenix in 1995, when she, [[Harry Potter|Harry]] and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] spent several weeks at [[12 Grimmauld Place|the Order's headquarters]]. Through her time at Grimmauld Place, Hermione got to know [[Alastor Moody]], the most famous [[Auror]] of modern times, known for rounding up several [[Death Eaters]] after the [[First Wizarding War]] and for his growing paranoia. He and Hermione fought together in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]], and later, in the [[Battle of the Seven Potters]], where Moody was killed by Voldemort's own hand. Hermione, like the rest of the Order, was shocked and horrified by the death of such a skilled Auror, "''the consummate survivor'',"<ref name="DH" /> and disgusted by [[Mundungus Fletcher]]'s desertion. Hermione, who had known Fletcher as a petty criminal who had stolen a number the Black family heirlooms shortly after [[Sirius Black]]'s death, aside from being a member of the Order, took part in interrogating Fletcher, when she, Harry and Ron realised [[Salazar Slytherin's Locket]] had been among the items stolen from Grimmauld Place.
 
 
Hermione had great respect for [[Kingsley Shacklebolt]], a skilled Auror and eventual [[Minister for Magic]], who was known as "Royal" on ''[[Potterwatch]]'', and who saved countless lives (including Hermione, Ron and Harry's) when he sent his [[Patronus Charm|Patronus]] to warn the attendees of [[Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour|Bill and Fleur's wedding]] that the Ministry had fallen, and with it, the protections surrounding [[the Burrow]]. Another member of the Order responsible for saving the trio was [[Aberforth Dumbledore]], Albus' younger brother. Though Hermione, Harry and Ron had known him for some time as the owner of the [[Hog's Head|Hog's Head Pub]], they finally met him in [[1998]], just before the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], when he just barely managed to get them out a trap set by [[Death Eaters]]. Prior to that, he sent Dobby to rescue them, along with [[Dean Thomas]], [[Luna Lovegood]], [[Garrick Ollivander]] and [[Griphook]] the Goblin, from the [[Skirmish at Malfoy Manor|Malfoy Manor]]; as it turned out, Aberforth had acquired Sirius Black's [[two-way mirror]] from Mundungus Fletcher, and been keeping an eye out for Harry.
 
 
[[Nymphadora Tonks]], a funny, [[Metamorphmagus]] witch, who had become a good friend of Hermione's, died along with her husband and fellow member of the Order, [[Remus Lupin]], during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]]. As their son, [[Edward Lupin|Ted Lupin]], was Harry's godson and was also dating Hermione's niece, [[Victoire Weasley|Victoire]] by 2017, it's likely Hermione remained quite close to him.
 
   
===Septima Vector===

====Septima Vector====
Hermione also had a good relationship with her [[Arithmancy]] [[Septima Vector|Professor Septima Vector]]. Many students disliked Vector because of her strictness. However, Hermione said Arithmancy was her favourite subject at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]]. She also never complained about Vector's strictness.

The name also appears in Jean-Baptiste Lully's play ''{{w|Cadmus et Hermione}}'', based on the story of the goddess of harmony, Harmonia, who married the founder of Thebes.

[[Wikipedia:Granger (name)|Granger]] is another word for farmer; specifically, it was the title of a farm bailiff, who oversaw the collection of rent and taxes from the barns of a feudal lord. It is a surname of English and French origin, derived from the Anglo-Norman ''grainger'' and the French ''grangier'', both of which come from Latin ''granica'', meaning "granary." It recalls Hermione's [[Non-magic people|Muggle]] roots. Her original last name was "Puckle," but Rowling later decided this didn't suit her character.

The reason of choosing such an uncommon name as Hermione for the character is because, according to Rowling, she did not bear getting any child mocked because of sharing a name with an "insufferable know-it-all" such as Hermione.

Latest revision as of 12:29, August 13, 2020

Harry Potter: "But why's she got to go to the library?"
Ronald Weasley: "Because that's what Hermione does. When in doubt, go to the library."
— Hermione's book dependency[src]

Minister Hermione Jean[18] Granger (b. 19 September, 1979[1]) was an English Muggle-born[3] witch born to Mr and Mrs Granger. At the age of eleven, she learned about her magical nature and was accepted into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Hermione began attending Hogwarts in 1991 and was Sorted into Gryffindor House. She possessed a brilliant academic mind and proved to be a gifted student in almost every subject that she studied.

Hermione first met Harry Potter and Ron Weasley aboard the Hogwarts Express, who found her unfriendly and somewhat of an "insufferable know-it-all", an impression reinforced by her constant correct answers and eagerness to please the professors. However, she stepped in to take the blame from the boys after they had saved her from a troll on Hallowe'en in 1991, surprising them in a grateful way, which led to them quickly becoming friends. She later played a crucial role in protecting the Philosopher's Stone from Voldemort.

In her second year, Hermione had a key role in the discovery of the Chamber of Secrets, before falling victim to the basilisk unleashed upon Hogwarts following the opening of the Chamber. However, she recovered from the petrification under the care of Madam Pomfrey with Professor Sprout's Mandrake Restorative Draught. The next year, Hermione was granted permission to use a Time-Turner from the Ministry of Magic to facilitate her volition to study far more subjects than were possible without time travel, though she and Harry later used it to rescue Sirius Black from the Dementor's Kiss and Buckbeak the hippogriff from execution.

During her fourth year, Hermione became an advocate for the better treatment of house-elves, forming the association S.P.E.W., and helped in Harry's preparation for the Triwizard Tournament. In her fifth year, Hermione was the driving force behind the creation of Dumbledore's Army and fought alongside fellow D.A. members in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. In her sixth year, Hermione continued her role as Prefect and fought in the Battle of the Astronomy Tower.

Hermione played a significant role in many other battles of the Second Wizarding War, as well. In 1997, she fought in the Battle of the Seven Potters, alongside the Order of the Phoenix. Hermione and Ron decided not to return to Hogwarts for their final year of studies, instead choosing to accompany Harry on his quest to find and destroy Lord Voldemort's Horcruxes, a quest in which several of her actions were essential. She destroyed Hufflepuff's Cup, a Horcrux, with Ron using a basilisk fang found in the Chamber of Secrets. Hermione then fought in the Battle of Hogwarts, helping in the defeat of the Death Eater who tortured her: Bellatrix Lestrange.

Following the Second Wizarding War, Hermione went back to Hogwarts to complete her education. She later found employment with the Ministry of Magic, furthering the cause for the better treatment of house-elves. Afterward, she was promoted to the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, where she dedicated herself to eradicating old laws that were biased in favour of pure-bloods. Hermione eventually married Ron Weasley and together they had two children, Rose and Hugo. She became the godmother of Harry and Ginny Potter's eldest son James. By the year 2019, Hermione had become the Minister for Magic.

BiographyEdit

Early life (1979-1991)Edit

Granger family DH

A young Hermione with her parents

Hermione was born to Mr. and Mrs Granger on 19 September 1979. She was their only child[19] and, although they were "a bit bemused" by the oddities displayed by their daughter, they were known to be proud of her.

Upon turning eleven, Hermione was happily surprised to learn that she was a witch and was therefore invited to attend Hogwarts. She eagerly accepted and took to studying magic even before she began her first year at Hogwarts in the September of 1991, learning all the set spellbooks by heart and even managing to perform "a few spells" successfully. In addition to the texts set by the school, Hermione brought with her several other books for reference and to further her understanding of the wizarding world,[3] to the point that she had looked at books and had more knowledge of the wizarding world than some of her pure-blood/half-blood classmates.

Hogwarts years (1991-1997)Edit

Terry Boot: "How come you're not in Ravenclaw? With brains like yours?"
Hermione: "Well, the Sorting Hat did seriously consider putting me in Ravenclaw during my Sorting, but it decided on Gryffindor in the end."
— Hermione's use of the advanced Protean Charm[src]
Hermione enjoyed her years as a pupil at Hogwarts and took assignments, classes, and school rules very seriously. She was often described as brilliant, to the point of being said to be "the brightest witch of her age". Her favourite subject was initially Charms, and later Arithmancy. Given her keen mind, some students - such as Terry Boot - wondered why Hermione was Sorted into Gryffindor rather than Ravenclaw. She admitted that the Sorting Hat did consider putting her in Ravenclaw.

It is likely that the Sorting Hat ultimately put her in Gryffindor after stalling for about 4 minutes, because Hermione chose to be in it, just like Harry chose to not be in Slytherin. On the train she states that, "Gryffindor... sounds by far the best." She proved her rightful place in Gryffindor with her steadfast bravery and loyalty to her friends, Hogwarts, and Dumbledore's Army. After being Sorted into Gryffindor, Hermione shared a dormitory with Lavender Brown, Parvati Patil, Fay Dunbar and a ginger girl.[20]

In spite of always wanting to follow the school rules, after Hermione became friends with Harry and Ron, she would disobey the rules along with them in order to successfully complete their group affairs. For example, she went with Ron and Harry into the third-floor corridor in their first year, which students were temporarily forbidden from entering, in order to save the Philosopher's Stone; she assisted in creating the Polyjuice Potion in their second year; and although Harry was the one who taught Dumbledore's Army in their fifth year, she was the one who came up with the idea.

First yearEdit

Meeting Harry and RonEdit
"Has anyone seen a toad? Neville's lost one"
—Hermione's first interaction with Harry Potter and Ron Weasley[src]
Trio meet

The trio meet for the first time aboard the Hogwarts Express

Hermione was a couple of weeks away from turning twelve when she boarded the Hogwarts Express in 1991, where she met Harry Potter and Ron Weasley while helping Neville Longbottom find his pet toad, Trevor. Hermione demonstrated knowledge and talent with magic beyond most of those her age, despite having only recently discovered that she was a witch. She wished to be a Gryffindor or a Ravenclaw, and her wish was granted considering she did get sorted into Gryffindor.

Hermione soon proved to be the best in all her classes, eager to please the professors and to help others learn, albeit in a bossy way that made it difficult for her to make friends. Although she was a know-it-all, Hermione did often help Neville Longbottom, who struggled in most classes other than Herbology.[3]

Hermione strictly followed all school rules and tried to prevent other students from breaking rules and getting into trouble. On one night, she followed Harry and Ron as they were leaving Gryffindor Tower to duel Draco Malfoy. They were chased by Argus Filch, acting on a tipoff by Malfoy, into the third-floor corridor — forbidden to students — where they came face-to-face with Fluffy, a three-headed dog belonging to Hagrid. Later on, she argued that her spying was to their benefit when she pointed out the dog had been standing on a trapdoor, which neither Harry nor Ron had noticed.[3]

Hallowe'enEdit

"There are some things you can't share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them"
—The creation of the trio's special friendship[src]

The friendship between Harry, Ron and Hermione was solidified when, on Hallowe'en in 1991, the three were forced to confront a mountain troll, which had been secretly let into the school by Professor Quirinus Quirrell. Unaware that a troll was on the loose in the school, Hermione had spent that day crying in the girls' bathroom after overhearing Ron making unkind comments about her. The troll made its way into the bathroom she was in, and Harry and Ron came to her rescue, saving her. When Professors Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape and Quirinus Quirrell arrived at the scene, Hermione covered for the boys, claiming she was fighting the troll because she had thought that she could manage, having read a great deal about them and that Ron and Harry had merely come to help her escape. From then on, the three students were best friends and spent large amounts of time together.[3]

Hagrid's dragonEdit
Hermione sets fire to cloak

Hermione setting Snape's robes on fire during a Quidditch match

The incident with the troll was by no means her only adventure in that first year. During the first Quidditch match, Hermione set Professor Snape's robes on fire when she thought he was jinxing Harry's broom. In the spring of 1992, Hagrid, now a friend of Hermione's through Harry, managed to procure a Dragon egg, the unlicensed possession of which was illegal. The three children secretly helped Hagrid care for the beast, which he'd named Norbert. When the dragon was discovered, she and Harry smuggled it out of the school to some friends of Ron's elder brother, Charlie Weasley, who worked as a dragon-tamer. On their way back to the dormitories they were caught by Argus Filch, who escorted them to Professor Minerva McGonagall. Along with Neville and Draco, they received detention and had 50 points deducted each from their respective houses.[3]

After their run-in with Fluffy, Harry deduced that whatever Hagrid had retrieved from Gringotts was beneath the trapdoor. Hagrid let it slip that "... What's under that trapdoor is strictly between Dumbledore and Nicholas Flamel". After much research turned up nothing, Harry was given a Dumbledore Chocolate Frog Card by Neville, which mentions Dumbledore's work in Alchemy with Flamel. This led Hermione to look at a large book on Alchemy which she had borrowed from the library for "a bit of light reading". After consulting the book, she realised that Fluffy was guarding the Philosopher's Stone.[3]

The Underground ChambersEdit

Fearing that Lord Voldemort would return if he stole the stone, and believing that Snape was acting as a double agent and attempting to steal it, Harry decided to steal it first. When he told Hermione that he could go on alone, she rebuffed him. After the trio passed Fluffy, it was Hermione who freed Ron from a patch of Devil's Snare he had dropped into by conjuring Bluebell Flames. She later got herself and Harry through a challenge involving a Potion Riddle in order to obtain the right potion between many of them. Hermione used her logic to figure out the riddle and let Harry go forward without her, as there was only enough potion for one person.[3]

Later, at the Farewell Feast in the Great Hall, Hermione, Harry, Ron, and Neville were all awarded extra House Points for bravery and heroism, allowing Gryffindor to win the House Cup.[3] Hermione earned her 10 points by correctly solving Professor Snape’s potion riddle.
" Second -- to Miss Hermione Granger... for the use of cool logic in the face of fire, I award Gryffindor house fifty points."
Albus Dumbledore, giving points to Hermione Granger during the end-of-term feast of 1991

Second yearEdit

Hermione: "Well, if you two are going to chicken out, fine. I don't want to break rules, you know. I think threatening Muggle-borns is far worse than brewing up a difficult potion. But if you don't want to find out...."
Ron Weasley: "I never thought I'd see the day when you'd be persuading us to break rules."
— Hermione breaking school rules in an attempt to catch the Heir of Slytherin[src]

Before she started her second year, Hermione wrote several letters to Harry at Privet Drive, all of which were intercepted by Dobby, as the house-elf wanted Harry to believe that his friends had forgotten him in order to prevent his return to Hogwarts. She and her parents also accompanied Harry and the Weasley family to Diagon Alley to shop for school supplies.

Harry-potter2 draco hermione

Draco Malfoy calling Hermione the derogatory slur "Mudblood"

It was during her second school year that Hermione first encountered the prejudice and hatred surrounding her blood status, when Draco Malfoy called her a "filthy little Mudblood" after she told him off for insulting the Gryffindor Quidditch team. Hermione had never heard the highly offensive term but looking around at everyone around her, it was an obvious fact. Fred and George Weasley lunged at him, and Ron even tried to hex him, but it backfired, as his wand had been damaged. To help Hermione feel better about the incident, Hagrid urged her not to think about it, pointing out that she was a talented witch, regardless of what bigoted people said about her Muggle-born status.

Harry and Ron were surprised, and Ron annoyed, by Hermione's obvious crush on Gilderoy Lockhart, who became that year's Defence Against the Dark Arts professor. She scored full marks on the first quiz in his class, which consisted entirely of questions pertaining to Lockhart's books, including a question regarding his favourite colour (lilac) that most of the class had answered incorrectly. In fact, she went as far as to doodle hearts on her DADA assignments, not knowing until later that he was, in reality, a self-obsessed fraud.

Trio writing on wall

The writing on the wall and the petrified form of Mrs Norris

On Hallowe'en, 1992 Hermione attended Nearly Headless Nick's Deathday Party with Harry and Ron. Whilst heading back upstairs, she followed Harry in a detour, after he claimed to be hearing voices. They discovered the caretaker's cat, Mrs Norris, petrified and the walls vandalised. Hermione began spending all her free time in the Hogwarts Library after she saw the writing on the corridor walls, which had said that the Chamber of Secrets had been re-opened. Despite hoping to read about the legend, she could not, as all the books had been previously checked out.

Hermione shocked everyone when she actually interrupted Professor Binns during a History of Magic class, asking about the Chamber of Secrets. This was the only known time when a student had asked the boring professor a question, and the class was interested in what he had to say. Professor Binns had stated that Salazar Slytherin had hidden a chamber which consisted of a horrible monster. It had been unleashed before once by an "Heir of Slytherin", petrifying many Muggle-born and had also killed a Ravenclaw girl, named Myrtle Warren, who began haunting the girls' lavatory and became known as Moaning Myrtle. Slytherin, a pure-blood loyalist, was against Muggle-born children being allowed to attend Hogwarts, but he was outnumbered by the other founders and Muggle-borns like Hermione were permitted as students. Slytherin fled the school, but rumours spread that he had built a hidden chamber; it was said that the school had been searched many times, but no such chamber had been found.

Brewing potions

When Harry proposed the theory that Draco Malfoy was the Heir of Slytherin, Hermione and Ron agreed. Hermione suggested that they brew Polyjuice Potion, and temporarily transform themselves into Slytherin students in an attempt to find out the truth. She went even further by daring to check Moste Potente Potions out of the library using a note from Professor Lockhart - who had no idea what the book was - in the desire to research the potion. The book was in the Restricted Section and therefore unavailable to younger students without permission from a teacher. She hoped that they would be able to obtain a viable confession from Malfoy, if he was unaware he was being interrogated. She brewed the potion in Moaning Myrtle's bathroom, as no one used it due to Myrtle herself being highly irritating. She also risked serious consequences when she stole potion ingredients from Professor Snape's personal cupboards that were needed for the difficult potion, which took a month to brew.

The trio discuss possible theories behind Tom Riddle's mysterious diary

Unfortunately, Hermione was unable to join Harry and Ron in the ruse with Polyjuice Potion because the hair she obtained from Slytherin Millicent Bulstrode during their scuffle in the Duelling Club was actually the hair of Bulstrode's cat. Hermione grew fur and a tail and remained in the Hospital Wing for weeks as she did not transform back when the normal duration of effectiveness - one hour - was up. Harry and Ron, however, were able to use the potion she brewed to transform into Gregory Goyle and Vincent Crabbe, respectively. They entered the Slytherin common room, and through conversation with Draco Malfoy, realised that he was not the Heir of Slytherin, and was not involved in the opening of the Chamber after all.

Petrified Hermione

Months after her recovery from the Polyjuice complication, Hermione suffered another accident. Drawing the connection between Harry hearing voices in the walls and him being a Parselmouth, she came to the conclusion that the creature attacking students must be a Basilisk, and rushed to the library to conduct further research. On her way back from the library, she warned the first person she saw, Penelope Clearwater, and advised her to look around corners with a mirror before going anywhere. It saved both their lives, because they were both petrified when they spotted the basilisk's eyes through the mirror instead of dying immediately as they would have done if they'd looked straight into its eyes.

Though she was petrified for the rest of the school year, Hermione was still able to assist Harry and Ron, for she had torn out the page on basilisks and scribbled on it "pipes", referencing the manner in which the creature had moved around the school undetected. Harry and Ron found it clenched in her hand when they were finally allowed to visit her in the Hospital Wing. Using this note and other information they had gathered, Harry and Ron were able to successfully put an end to Lord Voldemort's plans to resurrect his body through his memory stored in an old school diary.

Hermione was later cured with a Mandrake Restorative Draught created by Professor Sprout. Upon arriving at the Great Hall, she was immediately greeted by Nearly Headless Nick. After hugging Harry she exchanged an awkward greeting with Ron. Hermione was disappointed to learn that, as a special treat for the school, Professor Dumbledore cancelled the students' end of year exams, but she was intensely proud that her friends had solved the mystery.[21] That summer, Hermione went on holiday to France with her parents.

Third yearEdit

"P-P-Professor McGonagall! Sh-she said I'd failed everything!"

Magical Menagerie

Hermione adopting Crookshanks from the Magical Menagerie

Just before she began the 1993-1994 school year, while visiting Diagon Alley with Harry and the Weasley family, Hermione met and adopted a ginger part-Kneazle cat named Crookshanks from the Magical Menagerie. However, her new bond with her cat caused friction with Ron and his pet rat Scabbers, as Crookshanks was always trying to catch the rat. Also at the beginning of this school year, Hermione obtained a Time-Turner from Professor McGonagall so she could double up on classes, though this was kept secret from everyone, even Harry and Ron.

When Harry received a Firebolt for Christmas with no note, Hermione reported it to Professor McGonagall, thinking it was sent by Sirius Black, whom everyone believed to be a dangerous murderer who was after Harry. His broom was taken away to be inspected, which caused a temporary rift between the two friends. There was a further social strain for Hermione when Ron accused Crookshanks of eating Scabbers, who had disappeared.

Hermione poured herself into defending Buckbeak, the hippogriff on trial before the Committee for the Disposal of Dangerous Creatures for attacking Draco Malfoy during a Care of Magical Creatures class. Once the trio reconciled, after Hagrid told Harry and Ron how disappointed he was when they selfishly put the Firebolt and Scabbers over their friendship with Hermione, they apologised. Their attempt to save Buckbeak failed, as Lucius Malfoy frightened the Committee into deciding that the creature would be executed. Hermione was extremely upset by this news and grew furious to the point of slapping Draco Malfoy when he dared to mock Hagrid for his tears and being upset over Buckbeak's fate.

That year, Hermione was among the students who found Remus Lupin to be the best Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher they have ever had. She cleverly deduced that Professor Lupin was a werewolf, based on his Boggart taking the form of a full moon, the timing of his unexplained absences from class, and Professor Snape changing a lesson he took over to the subject of werewolves even though it wasn't due on the syllabus for weeks. However, she didn't expose Lupin, presumably because she believed he was a good teacher and didn't agree with the prejudice many hold against werewolves.

Divination, on the other hand, turned out to be a subject Hermione had no respect for or interest in, and soon dropped the subject after Professor Sybill Trelawney told her that she didn't posses the Second Sight and because she believed that Divination was an imprecise term of magic.[15]
