Hermione Granger Character Analysis

Harry and Ron's best friend at Hogwarts. She's muggle-born and is the smartest student in their year. Though she's always loved school and learning, Hermione takes this a step further in her third year when Professor McGonagall arranges for Hermione to receive a Time-Turner, a device that allows her to do hours over so she can take multiple classes at the same time. Because of this, Hermione spends most of the school year worried, stressed, and busy, as she has more homework than anyone else. Though this makes her snappy and irritable, Ron's behavior makes things even worse: Hermione's new cat, Crookshanks, seems to have it out for Scabbers, Ron's rat. Hermione insists that because Crookshanks is a cat, it's understandable that he wants to chase rats. They spend much of the year not talking to each other because of this, and Harry also ignores Hermione after she tells Professor McGonagall about the Firebolt he receives for Christmas. She chooses to tell McGonagall about the broomstick because she cares deeply for Harry's safety, and she also takes rules very seriously. Hermione loves all of her classes except for Divination. She refers to it as "woolly" and scoffs at Trelawney's predictions, as she believes they're silly and obvious. Around Easter, she drops the class. When Snape substitutes for Lupin and assigns an essay on werewolves, Hermione is the only student to complete it. In doing so, she does exactly what Snape intended and discovers that Lupin is a werewolf, though she keeps this to herself until she, Harry, Ron, and Sirius Black end up in the Shrieking Shack with him. She asks a number of insightful questions in the shack that Harry takes as proof of how seriously she takes her studies. At the end of their ordeal, Dumbledore sends Hermione and Harry back in time to free Buckbeak and Sirius, and Hermione's love of rules means that she's fanatical about making sure Harry adheres to all the rules of time travel. This is her last trip back in time, however; she chooses to drop Muggle Studies so she can have a normal class schedule.

"It's very lucky he picked tonight, you know," said Hermione as they climbed fully dressed into their sleeping bags and propped themselves onto their elbows to talk. "The one night we weren't in the tower..."

Hagrid snorted.

"Well, isn't it obvious?" said Hermione, with a look of maddening superiority.

"If you don't want to tell us, don't," snapped Ron.

Hermione burst into tears. Before Harry could say or do anything, she tucked the enormous book under her arm, and, still sobbing, ran toward the staircase to the girls' dormitories and out of sight.

"Can't you give her a break?" Harry asked Ron quietly.

"No," said Ron flatly. "If she just acted like she was sorry--but she'll never admit she's wrong, Hermione. She's still acting like Scabbers has gone on vacation or something."

Explanation and Analysis:
Chapter Eighteen Quotes

"I was terrified they would desert me the moment they found out what I was. But of course, they, like you, Hermione, worked out the truth...

"And they didn't desert me at all. Instead, they did something for me that would make my transformations not only bearable, but the best times of my life. They became Animagi."

Page Number: 354
Explanation and Analysis:

"That was still really dangerous! Running around in the dark with a werewolf! What if you'd given the others the slip, and bitten somebody?"

"A thought that still haunts me," said Lupin heavily. "And there were near misses, many of them. We laughed about them afterwards. We were young, thoughtless--carried away with our own cleverness."

"Yes, I do," said Dumbledore quietly. "But I have no power to make other men see the truth, or to overrule the Minister of Magic..."

Harry stared up into the grave face and felt as though the ground beneath him were falling sharply away. He had grown used to the idea that Dumbledore could solve anything. He had expected Dumbledore to pull some amazing solution out of thin air. But no...their last hope was gone."
