Hermione Granger
Hermione Granger is a fictional character within the series called Harry Potter, written by JK Rowling. Rowling introduces this character a young witch, who attends the infamous Hogwarts. The school teaches young witches and wizards the arts of wizardry and witchcraft. Hermione Granger is present in all of the books within the series, and becomes best friends with both Harry Potter and Ron Weasley. Together, the trio goes to great lengths to eventually, defeat Lord Voldemort and save Hogwarts. The most evident and notable thing about Hermione Granger, is that she is a role model for many young, teenage female readers and viewers. Hermione possess great skills, and they are showed greatly throughout the novels and movies.
Hermione is a complex character within the series Harry Potter. Hermione is brave, as she fights for what she believes in throughout the series. For example, within the Sorcer’s Stone, Hermione saves her friends from a troll by using an ingenious spell that save them all from harm. The troll attempted to kill the trio, but Hermione used her quick thinking skills in order to save them. A second example of her bravery, would be a part from Deathly Hallows. Hermione and her friends, Harry and Ron, were stuck within one of the Gringotts vaults. She displays impeccable bravery by having her and her friends use a dragon that was guarding the vault, in means of escape. Many would not dare, as a dragon that is meant to guard a vault is meant to kill, yet Hermione used her bravery and quick-action skills in order to escape.
In continuation to the examples mentioned above, Hermione uses cleverness in many situations. Hermione is smart and has a great work ethic when it comes to her classes that take place at Hogwarts. In many instances, she uses spells in order to save both her and her friends. Within the first two novels, Hermione can seem a bit of a show off at times, but these come in handy when Harry and Ron run into trouble. While her brilliance can seem like an annoyance at times, it does come with its benefits. When Hermione was faced by bullies, she never used violence. Hermione used brilliance in order to defend herself. This makes her truly remarkable. Hermione accomplishes so much within the series, and hardly ever receives the due credit that she truly deserves. Furthermore, there may be a reason as to why Hermione works hard at her spells. Hermione is considered “muggle-born.” This is a term that is used and given whenever a wizard or witch is born from two muggles, or non-magical parents. Another character within the series named “Malfo...
