Hermione Granger Character Analysis

One of Harry's best friends. Hermione is extremely intelligent, relies heavily on books, and was an exceptional and overachieving student in school. Her intelligence and her magical capabilities are most often responsible for Harry, Ron, and her success once they go on the run. She places an Extension Charm on a small beaded purse, which allows her to carry a library as well as a variety of other necessities to help them on their way. Like Ron, Hermione remains loyal to Dumbledore and refuses to believe everything that Rita Skeeter wrote in her biography of him. Instead, she reminds Harry that Skeeter isn't reliable, and that since Skeeter disliked Dumbledore, she's bound to have listed untrue things as facts. She remains a voice of reason for Harry and insists that Dumbledore cared about Harry and had a plan, though Ron later reveals that Hermione certainly has her doubts—she just doesn't voice them to Harry like Ron ultimately does. Though Hermione is instrumental in figuring out what the Deathly Hallows are, she struggles to believe in them and when she learns that the Elder Wand is indeed real, she insists that it's evil and that it wasn't worth pursuing. She remains firm in her insistence that they need to follow Dumbledore's orders and continue to hunt for Horcruxes rather than get sidetracked with the Hallows. Hermione also stays firm in her loyalty to Harry, and she becomes angrier than Harry has ever seen her when Ron returns after abandoning them. She's been interested in improving the lives of non-human beings for years, and she's finally able to put some of her ideas in practice with Kreacher—to whom she's finally able to show respect—and with Griphook, as she insists that she, Harry, and Ron need to treat the goblin fairly and not behave like countless other wizards who have abused their relationships with non-magical creatures. Hermione finally admits that she loves Ron when he insists on evacuating the house-elves from Hogwarts. She and Ron later marry and have two children.

Chapter Two Quotes

He had thought he knew Dumbledore quite well, but ever since reading this obituary he had been forced to recognize that he had barely known him at all. Never once had he imagined Dumbledore's childhood or youth; it was as though he had sprung into being as Harry had known him, venerable and silver-haired and old. The idea of a teenage Dumbledore was simply odd, like trying to imagine a stupid Hermione or a friendly Blast-Ended Skrewt.

Chapter Ten Quotes

"Elf magic isn't like wizard's magic, is it?" said Ron. "I mean, they can Apparate and Disapparate in and out of Hogwarts when we can't."

There was silence as Harry digested this. How could Voldemort have made such a mistake? But even as he thought this, Hermione spoke, and her voice was icy.

"Of course, Voldemort would have considered the ways of house-elves far beneath his notice, just like all the purebloods who treat them like animals...It would never have occurred to him that they might have magic that he didn't."

Explanation and Analysis:

"Sirius was horrible to Kreacher, Harry, and it's no good looking like that, you know it's true. Kreacher had been alone for a long time when Sirius came to live here, and he was probably starving for a bit of affection. I'm sure 'Miss Cissy' and 'Miss Bella' were perfectly lovely to Kreacher when he turned up, so he did them a favor and told them everything they wanted to know. I've said all along that wizards would pay for how they treat house-elves. Well, Voldemort did...and so did Sirius."

Chapter Fifteen Quotes

The rain was pounding the tent, tears were pouring down Hermione's face, and the excitement of a few minutes before had vanished as if it had never been, a short-lived firework that had flared and died, leaving everything dark, wet, and cold. The sword of Gryffindor was hidden they knew not where, and they were three teenagers in a tent whose only achievement was not, yet, to be dead.

Chapter Sixteen Quotes

"'The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death'..." A horrible thought came to him, and with it a kind of panic. "Isn't that a Death Eater idea? Why is that there?"

"It doesn't mean defeating death in the way the Death Eaters mean it, Harry," said Hermione, her voice gentle. "It means...you know...living beyond death. Living after death."

Chapter Twenty-Nine Quotes

Dumbledore had warned him against telling anyone but Ron and Hermione about the Horcruxes. Secrets and lies, that's how we grew up, and Albus...he was a natural...Was he turning into Dumbledore, keeping his secrets clutched to his chest, afraid to trust? But Dumbledore had trusted Snape, and where had that led? To murder at the top of the highest tower...

"All right," he said quietly to the other two.
