|Hermione Weasley née Granger|
Hermione Granger (September 1979) is a muggle-born witch and the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Granger. She attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1992 until 1998, at which point she began hunting horcruxes with her friends.
Hermione was a very bookish girl who at the time of her entrance into Hogwarts heavily valued book knowledge and was a stickler for following rules. Despite this, the Sorting Hat sensed courage in her and sorted her into Gryffindor House. Her initial relationship with Harry Potter and Ron Weasley was strained, but the three became fast friends following an incident with a troll.
Having been muggle-born, Hermione knew nothing of magic prior to her acceptance at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Upon learning of her special gifts, she immediately sought out a number of textbooks in an attempt to learn all she could about the wizarding world.
She proved herself as a talented witch, passing O.W.L.s in all major subjects and a couple of optional ones, and continuing at N.E.W.T. level in several major subjects. She was very accomplished at practical magic, able to brew advanced Potions and cast complex defensive Charms.
