Hermione Granger is a witch in Gryffindor House at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She makes her first appearance in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone when she is in her first year along with Harry and Ron. Hermione is the smartest witch in her year, but has a reputation as a bossy know-it-all.

Early life

Hermione was born on September 19, 1979. Hermione's parents are Muggle dentists.

She has brown eyes, bushy brown hair and rather large front teeth. She is academically very bright.

First Year

At first, Hermione doesn't have friends because she acts like a bossy know-it-all. She becomes friends with Harry Potter and Ron Weasley after they save her from a troll. Their friendship helps her to loosen up and break more rules, most notably when she helps Harry smuggle Hagrid's dragon out of Hogwarts. She accompanies Harry and Ron through the trapdoor and uses her logic skill to get Harry past the potions challenge into the final chamber. Her "cool reasoning under pressure" earns her fifty points for Gryffindor.

From the Story


Hermione Granger is a Gryffindor student and the best witch in her year at Hogwarts. She has lots of bushy brown hair, brown eyes and large front teeth, and frequently demonstrates her impressive knowledge. Her parents are Muggle dentists.

The Journey from Platform Nine and Three-Quarters, "The Journey to Hogwarts"[1]

Hermione quickly earns a reputation as a bossy know-it-all at Hogwarts. Harry and Ron initially try to ignore her.

The Sorting Hat, "The Sorting Ceremony"[2]

Whilst the students speculate about how they will be sorted into their houses, Hermione is heard whispering very fast about all the spells she has learnt, and wonders which one she will need to use.

When her name is called, Hermione almost runs to the stool. She jams the hat eagerly on her head, and is sorted into Gryffindor.

Hallowe'en, "Charms Class"[3]

When, on Hallowe’en, Ron calls Hermione “a nightmare,” Hermione spends the rest of the day crying in the first-floor girls’ toilet. Harry and Ron, while trying to warn her about the mountain troll that has been set loose in the castle, accidentally lock the creature inside the bathroom with her. They rush back in and the trio work together to knock out the troll. Through their triumph they become friends.

Quidditch, "The Golden Snitch"[4]

Hermione relaxes a little after she becomes friends with Harry and Ron, helping them with and occasionally checking their homework. When she suspects that Snape is trying to jinx Harry to fall off his broom during a Quidditch match, she runs to his seat and sets his robes on fire.

Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback, "Hagrid's Secret"[5]

Hermione not only finds information on Nicolas Flamel but convinces Hagrid to tell her, Harry and Ron some more information about who has provided enchantments for the Philosopher’s Stone.

The Forbidden Forest, "Harry Becomes an Outcast"[6]

Hermione and Harry help Hagrid by arranging for Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback –the dragon Hagrid illegally hatches in his hut – to be collected and taken to Charlie Weasley in Romania. Harry and Hermione take Norbert to Hogwarts’ tallest tower and hand the dragon to Charlie Weasley’s friends; however, Filch catches them on the way down. Hermione and Harry each lose fifty points from Gryffindor, receive detentions and become outcasts at the school.

The Man with Two Faces, "The Hospital Wing"[7]

When Hermione, Harry and Ron go through the trapdoor to the chambers protecting the Philosopher’s Stone, Hermione initially panics, then gathers her wits in time to repel the Devil’s Snare. In the penultimate chamber, she uses logic to correctly choose the potion that allows Harry to go through to the final room. She receives fifty points for Gryffindor for her use of cool reasoning under pressure.

At Flourish and Blotts, "Lucius Malfoy"[8]

Errol delivers a letter from Hermione to Ron and Harry in which she suggests meeting up in Diagon Alley.

Hermione meets Harry and the Weasley family in Diagon Alley where she and her parents are picking up school supplies. She has been very busy doing schoolwork already, and is very excited to attend Professor Lockhart’s signing.

Gilderoy Lockhart, "Herbology"[9]

Hermione earns twenty points for Gryffindor in the first Herbology lesson of the year after correctly answering Professor Sprout's question about Mandrakes.

Hermione gets a perfect score on the quiz set by Professor Lockhart during the first Defence Against the Dark Arts class. She admires Lockhart hugely even after the pixie debacle.

Mudbloods and Murmurs, "Quidditch Practice"[10]

After Hermione insults the Slytherin Quidditch team, claiming that Draco Malfoy only got onto it because his father bought the team their Nimbus Two Thousand and One brooms, Draco calls her a "Mudblood". Hermione does not understand the term, but it causes outrage amongst the Gryffindors. Ron explains later that the term is an ugly epithet for someone who is Muggle-born.

The Deathday Party, "Nearly Headless Nick's Party"[11]

At Nearly Headless Nick’s Deathday Party, Hermione identifies a glum-looking ghost as Moaning Myrtle, who haunts the girls’ toilet. Hermione claims that it’s very difficult to get any privacy as she’s always wailing.

Hermione finds the Petrified Mrs Norris with Harry and Ron. She accompanies the two boys to Lockhart's office with the teachers.

The Writing on the Wall, "The Legend of the Chamber of Secrets"[12]

After Mrs Norris is Petrified, Hermione spends nearly all her time in the library trying to find out more about the legend of the Chamber of Secrets. Since the copies of Hogwarts: A History have been taken out from the library, she asks Professor Binns about the subject during the next History of Magic lesson. Professor Binns and the entire class are stunned (no one has ever raised their hand in this class before). At first Binns refuses to explain the legend but Hermione persists, until he relents and tells the story.

After their History of Magic lesson Hermione, Harry and Ron have another look at the site of the attack. Hermione convinces Harry and Ron to investigate Myrtle’s toilet as this was the source of the water on the floor on the night of the attack. She insists that it’s fine for the boys to go in, since no one ever uses it. Later, she suggests that she, Harry and Ron brew Polyjuice Potion to pose as Slytherins to find out whether Draco is the heir of Slytherin.

The Rogue Bludger, "Moste Potente Potions"[13]

Hermione asks Lockhart for a signed permission form to take Moste Potente Potions out of the Restricted Section of the library. She initially wants to keep the slip (and Lockhart’s signature) instead of handing it in to Madam Pince.

Hermione says that brewing the Polyjuice Potion will take a month if they can get hold of some restricted ingredients. Hermione realises that these ingredients will have to be stolen from Snape's private stores and volunteers to do this herself, as she is the least likely of the three to get expelled if caught.

The Duelling Club, "The Diversion"[14]

The day after the Gryffindor-Slytherin Quidditch match, Hermione and Ron overhear Professor McGonagall telling Professor Flitwick that Colin has been Petrified and immediately start brewing the Polyjuice Potion. The next Thursday, Harry creates a diversion in Potions class and Hermione steals the required ingredients from Professor Snape’s office.

During the Duelling Club, Hermione is paired up with Slytherin Millicent Bulstrode. She ends up in a headlock. Hermione reveals to Harry that speaking Parseltongue is a famous hallmark of Salazar Slytherin, and that Harry’s ability to speak it may indicate that he is his descendant.

The Polyjuice Potion, "The Potion is Ready"[15]

Early on Christmas morning Hermione tends to the Polyjuice Potion, adding lacewings. She then wakes Harry and Ron, telling them that the Potion is ready.

Hermione prepares two chocolate cakes laced with a Sleeping Draught for Harry and Ron to leave for Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle, so that they can gather pieces of their hair for the Polyjuice Potion. She intends to use a hair plucked from Millicent Bulstrode's robes during the Duelling Club.

Hermione’s Polyjuice transformation doesn’t go well; she declines going to the Slytherin common room with Harry and Ron and instead stays behind in the bathroom. When Harry and Ron return they find Hermione looking cat-like, covered in fur and sporting a tail: she surmises that the hair she used in the Potion must have belonged to Millicent’s cat. Since the Polyjuice Potion is only meant for human transformations, Hermione must go to the hospital wing to recover.

The Very Secret Diary, "Tom Riddle's Diary"[16]

Hermione tries unsuccessfully to get the mysterious diary to reveal its contents by rubbing it with a Revealer and using the Aparecium spell.

Ron suspects Hermione of sending Lockhart a Valentine's Day card.

Cornelius Fudge, "Another Attack"[17]

Before the Gryffindor versus Hufflepuff Quidditch match, Harry hears the disembodied voice in the castle again. Hermione has a realisation about the voice and disappears to the library without explaining. Shortly thereafter, McGonagall marches to the Quidditch pitch and cancels the match. She takes Harry and Ron to the hospital wing, explaining that there has been another double attack: Penelope Clearwater, a Ravenclaw Prefect, and Hermione have both been found Petrified with a small circular mirror nearby.

The Chamber of Secrets, "Hermione's Clue"[18]

Hermione had a piece of paper clutched in her hand when she was Petrified; Harry and Ron find it when they visit her. Harry pries it loose to discover a page torn from a very old library book which describes a Basilisk, beneath which Hermione had written 'Pipes'. This leads Harry to realise that Hermione had worked out what the monster in the Chamber of Secrets was, and how it had been getting around the school.

Owl Post, "Harry's Birthday"[19]
Hermione sends Harry a Broomstick Servicing Kit for his birthday. The present is accompanied by a letter in which she tells Harry about her trip to France with her parents.

The Leaky Cauldron, "Monster Book of Monsters"[20]

Hermione meets Harry in Diagon Alley along with Ron on the last day of the holidays, looking very brown from her time in France. She is very concerned about Harry blowing up Aunt Marge, and is amazed that he wasn't punished or expelled from Hogwarts. Hermione has three bulging bags with her in Diagon Alley, full of books for the extra subjects she is taking that year, which the boys tease her about.

Hermione has been given some money by her parents as an early birthday present, and she wants to use it to buy herself an owl. She heads to the Magical Menagerie with the boys and is left alone in the shop when they run after the fleeing Scabbers. Instead of buying an owl she emerges clutching Crookshanks — the very cat who tried to attack Scabbers. She defends the large, ginger cat, and is surprised that he has gone so long without anyone wanting to buy him. Returning to the Leaky Cauldron with Ron and Harry, she joins the seven Weasleys and Harry for a delicious dinner in the parlor.

The Dementor, "Professor R.J. Lupin"[21]

Hermione, Ron and Harry enter the compartment at the end of the Hogwarts Express, which is occupied by a sleeping man. Hermione identifies him as Professor R. J. Lupin from the name on his case, pointing out that he must be the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher as that's the only vacancy at Hogwarts.

As Harry tells Ron and Hermione what he overheard about Sirius Black the night before, Hermione becomes worried that he might go looking for trouble. Harry and Hermione listen as an excited Ron tells them all about Hogsmeade, the wizarding village. When Harry reveals that he won't be going to Hogsmeade as the Dursleys did not sign his permission form, Hermione muses that it is probably for the best as Black is on the loose. Later, as the Hogwarts Express starts to slow down, Hermione points out that it is too early to be arriving at Hogwarts.

After the Dementor has left the compartment, Hermione and Ron kneel beside Harry and try to wake him up; as he comes round, Hermione explains how Professor Lupin sent the Dementor away, and that it may have been looking for Sirius Black. As they finally arrive at Hogwarts, Hermione is taken aside by Professor McGonagall, who wants to talk to her about her timetable for the year.

Talons and Tea Leaves, "Sir Cadogan"[22]

At breakfast in the Great Hall, Hermione examines her new timetable, happy about the prospect of starting new subjects. She dismisses Ron's concerns about how full her timetable is, saying she has fixed it all with Professor McGonagall. After breakfast, the trio make their way to North Tower for their first Divination lesson. In unfamiliar territory in the castle, they are unsure how to get to their classroom.

In the Divination classroom, Hermione is startled when Professor Trelawney announces that books won't help much in this class. She is unimpressed by Trelawney's reading of Harry's tea leaves, and doesn't think that the contents of his teacup resemble the Grim at all. Ron and Harry stare at Hermione in amazement as she challenges Trelawney's visions. Later, in Transfiguration class, Hermione explains to Professor McGonagall why the class is so subdued, and is amused when the teacher shares her opinion on Harry's impending death. Hermione tells Ron and Harry she doesn't think she'll continue with Divination for much longer if it means she has to pretend to see death omens in lumps of tea.

In Hagrid's first class, Ron, Hermione and Harry are the only three to approach the fence surrounding the Hippogriffs. After Harry's encounter with Buckbeak, he watches Hermione and Ron with a different, chestnut Hippogriff. After Draco Malfoy is attacked, Hermione runs to open the gate for Hagrid as he carries Draco to the castle. The three friends are worried that Hagrid might be fired as a result of the lesson, and despite Hermione's reluctance towards Harry leaving the castle after dark, they go to visit Hagrid in his hut. They attempt to reassure Hagrid, who has been drowning his sorrows since the lesson. As Hagrid sobers up, he becomes very angry with the trio for visiting him, admonishing Hermione and Ron for letting Harry wander about after dark. He marches them back to the castle.

The Boggart in the Wardrobe, "Riddikulus"[23]

Along with the rest of the class, Hermione, Ron and Harry are taken to the staff room for their Defense Against the Dark Arts lesson. Although she gains house points for answering Professor Lupin's question about Boggarts, Hermione is disappointed that she does not get a chance to face the Boggart herself. Ron asks her what shape she thinks it would have taken, sarcastically suggesting a piece of homework that only got nine out of ten.

Flight of the Fat Lady, "The Hallowe'en Feast"[24]

Although Hermione feels bad that Harry can't join her and Ron on their Hogsmeade visit, she doesn't agree with Ron that Harry should try to persuade McGonagall to let him go, and they argue more when Crookshanks tries to attack Scabbers again.

When Hermione, Harry and Ron find out that Lavender's rabbit has died, seemingly proving Professor Trelawney's prediction earlier in the year, Hermione remains sceptical. She points out the many discrepancies in Trelawney's prediction, and remains unconvinced in Trelawney's abilities as a Seer.

Hallowe'en morning, Hermione and Ron go to Hogsmeade together, having made up after their squabble about Crookshanks. When they return, they fill Harry in on their visit to Hogsmeade, and listen as he tells them about his visit to Lupin's office. Hermione is less worried than the others about Snape, and points out that he is unlikely to poison Lupin in front of Harry. They make their way to the Great Hall, where the Hallowe'en feast is beginning.

Hermione, Ron and Harry follow the rest of the Gryffindors up to Gryffindor Tower after the Hallowe'en feast. When they reach the corridor where the Fat Lady's portrait hangs, they find it filled with students. As Dumbledore arrives, they make their way closer to see what the trouble is. Hermione is shocked when she sees the slashed portrait of the Fat Lady.

Hermione worries about whether Sirius Black is still in the castle, and remarks how lucky they are that he picked the one night students weren't in Gryffindor Tower. Hermione becomes irritated as the students wonder how Black was able to enter the castle. She points out that the castle is protected by more than just walls — there are enchantments in place to stop people entering by stealth, or Apparition.

Hermione, Ron and Harry are disappointed when their Defense Against the Dark Arts lesson is taken by Professor Snape instead of Professor Lupin. During the class, Hermione regularly attempts to answer Professor Snape's questions but is either ignored or told to be quiet. Hermione is upset when Snape calls her an insufferable know-it-all during the lesson.

Grim Defeat, "Gryffindor versus Hufflepuff"[25]

Hermione and Ron watch the Quidditch match from the stands. During the time out that Oliver Wood calls, Hermione hurries down to the pitch and asks Harry for his glasses. She performs the Impervius Charm on them, which instantly makes them repel water and allows Harry to see properly.

After Harry's fall, Hermione, Ron and the Gryffindor Quidditch team gather around his bed in the hospital wing. Hermione is visibly upset by Harry's fall. She is hesitant when Harry asks about his broom, but eventually admits that it blew away, and hit the Whomping Willow. She tells Harry that Professor Flitwick brought it back, and reluctantly tips the remains of the broom onto Harry's bed.

The Marauder's Map, "Dissendium"[26]

After the Quidditch match, Hermione and Ron spend their weekend in the hospital wing with Harry. Hermione is glad when Professor Lupin returns to teach the following Monday, but is disappointed when he tells the class they don't have to do Snape's essay, as she has already finished it.

Hermione tells Harry that she has decided to stay at Hogwarts over the Christmas holidays, as she needs to use the library, although Harry thinks it more likely that she, like Ron, simply wants to stay with him. Hermione is very happy when a final Hogsmeade trip is announced for the last weekend of term, as she can do her Christmas shopping there. On the day of the trip, she and Ron set off for Hogsmeade together.

Hermione and Ron are in Honeydukes, trying to find a gift to bring Harry. When Harry makes his presence known, Hermione is shocked, and wonders how he got there. When Hermione hears about the Marauders Map, she thinks Harry should hand it in to Professor McGonagall. She worries that Sirius Black might be using one of the passages to get into Hogwarts, and thinks that the teachers need to know about them. She is unconvinced by Harry and Ron's protestations but agrees not to report Harry. Once she and Ron have paid for their sweets, the three leave Honeydukes and make their way to the Three Broomsticks for a Butterbeer.

As the teachers head for the table next to theirs in the Three Broomsticks, Hermione whispers the incantation Mobiliarbus to move the Christmas tree beside their table a few inches sideways, to hide their table from view. After the teachers have left the pub, Ron and Hermione look under the table at Harry, lost for words at what they have just heard the teachers discussing.

The Firebolt, "The Firebolt is Confiscated"[27]

Hermione worries that Harry doesn't look well, and tells him he mustn't upset himself about what they overheard in the Three Broomsticks. Like Ron, she is worried that Harry will try to go after Black, and asks him not to, reminding him that his parents would not want him to endanger himself. Hermione doesn't like Ron's suggestion of going to see Hagrid, as she doesn't think Harry should leave the castle. When they arrive at Hagrid's hut, they hear moaning coming from inside. As Hagrid appears, sobbing, Ron and Hermione help Harry escort him inside. When they hear about Buckbeak's court case, Hermione tells Hagrid that he is going to need a strong defence. The trio go to the library the next day to do research for the case.

Hermione joins the boys in their dormitory on Christmas Day, bringing Crookshanks with her. She is suspicious when she finds out there was no note with the Firebolt that Harry received. She thinks it odd that someone would buy Harry such an expensive broom and not tell him they sent it. When Crookshanks tries to attack Scabbers yet again, Hermione takes him away. She is furious that Ron tried to kick Crookshanks, and the two remain angry with each other all morning. She shoots dark looks at the Firebolt, as though it has personally offended her.

After the Christmas feast, Hermione returns to the Gryffindor common room with Professor McGonagall, whom she has told about the Firebolt. As McGonagall approaches Harry and Ron, Hermione sits down, attempting to hide her face behind a book. When Ron confronts her, Hermione tells the boys that she went to McGonagall because she suspects the Firebolt has been sent by Sirius Black.

The Patronus, "Expecto Patronum"[28]

Hermione avoids the Gryffindor common room after McGonagall confiscates the Firebolt although she is convinced that she did the right thing by informing her. After the first Defense Against the Dark Arts lesson, Hermione overhears Harry and Ron speculating about Lupin's illness. In a maddeningly superior manner, she implies that she knows what is wrong with Lupin.

As the term progresses, Hermione's workload seems to be getting to her. She spends every night in the corner of the common room surrounded by books and files. She barely speaks, and snaps at anyone who interrupts her. Hermione is the only student in the Gryffindor common room not to approach Harry when he gets his Firebolt back, and defends her decision to tell McGonagall when Ron challenges her. Although she looks incredibly tired, Hermione refuses to drop any subjects, and loves every one she is taking. Hermione is bewildered when Ron enters the common room and shouts at her. She is visibly upset when Ron shows her the blood on his sheet, and the ginger cat hairs that he found on the floor.

Gryffindor Versus Ravenclaw, "Ron Tries Out the Firebolt"[29]

Hermione maintains that Ron has no proof that Crookshanks has eaten Scabbers, and thinks Ron has been prejudiced against her cat ever since she bought it. She is upset when Harry appears to take Ron's side, and tells him to leave her alone.

Hermione sits in the corner of the common room as the rest of the Gryffindors celebrate. She tells Harry that she watched the match, but that she can't join in with the celebrations as she has to finish her work. When she hears Ron making pointed comments about Scabbers being eaten, she bursts into tears and runs up to the girls' dormitories.

Snape's Grudge, "Buckbeak's Appeal"[30]

According to Hagrid, Hermione is very unhappy and has been visiting Hagrid a lot. She has too much work to do, and has been helping Hagrid with Buckbeak's case on top of that. She is really upset about Ron's encounter with Sirius Black. When she overhears that Harry is planning to go to Hogsmeade again, Hermione threatens to tell Professor McGonagall about the Marauder's Map. She doesn't understand how Ron can let Harry go with him after the events of the weekend.

Hermione suspects that Harry will try and sneak into Hogsmeade again, and keeps a close eye on him at breakfast. She sees him climb the stairs in the Entrance Hall, away from the rest of the Hogsmeade visitors.

Hermione is walking towards Harry and Ron when they arrive in the corridor to Gryffindor Tower. Her lip trembles as she tells them Hagrid lost his case, and that Buckbeak is going to be executed.

The Quidditch Final, "Gryffindor Wins the Cup"[31]

Hermione and Ron watch the Quidditch final against Slytherin. When Gryffindor wins the match, they make their way onto the pitch, beaming as they walk towards Harry.

Professor Trelawney's Prediction, "Exam Time"[32]

Hermione is incredibly anxious about the upcoming exams. She is defensive when Ron and Harry question her about her exam timetable. She is worried when she finds out that an executioner is coming to Buckbeak's appeal, as she thinks it sounds like the Committee have already decided the verdict.

Hermione does well in the Defence Against the Dark Arts exam, until she faces the Boggart. She leaps out of the trunk screaming, and takes a while to calm down. She tells Professor Lupin that the Boggart turned into Professor McGonagall, who told her that she had failed everything.

Hermione, Ron and Harry are too worried about Buckbeak's appeal to look forward to the end of the exams like the rest of the students. Hermione leaves the boys to make her way to Muggle Studies — her final exam.

Hermione and Ron sit in a corner of the common room, upset that Hagrid lost his appeal. When Harry tells them that he doesn't have his Invisibility Cloak and that he can't retrieve it in case Snape sees him, Hermione asks him how to open the hump of the witch's statue. She then leaves the common room, and returns fifteen minutes later with the Cloak. Hermione looks flattered when Ron comments on her recent, uncharacteristic actions.

The three of them make their way to Hagrid's cabin. Hermione asks Hagrid where Buckbeak is, and hurries to help make the tea when she sees how shaken Hagrid is. She lets out a small sob as she listens to Hagrid talking about the execution, tears streaming down her face. Hermione shrieks when she goes to pour milk into a jug, and sees Scabbers in the bottom. She turns the jug upside-down, tipping the rat on to the table.

When Hagrid asks them to leave, Hermione throws the Invisibility Cloak over them once more. The trio leave through the pumpkin patch, and start to walk up towards the castle. Hermione is desperate to get up to the castle quickly, as she doesn't want to be around for the execution. She begs Ron to hurry when he is distracted by Scabbers. She tries not to listen to the voices behind them but she still hears the sound of the axe falling. She sways on the spot, unable to believe that they actually went through with the execution.

Cat, Rat and Dog, "The Shadow of the Whomping Willow"[33]

Hermione is in shock as she hears the executioner's axe. She becomes agitated by Ron's struggle with Scabbers, and worries that they will be caught by the Committee. She becomes more agitated when she spots Crookshanks walking towards them, and wants her cat to leave. She and Harry sprint after Ron as he chases Scabbers, skidding to a stop in front of the pair moments later. She tells Ron to get back under the Invisibility Cloak, worried that Dumbledore and the Committee will be leaving Hagrid's hut any minute.

Hermione is hit by the Whomping Willow as Ron is dragged away by the enormous dog. She is desperate to go for help at the castle, and is very uneasy about Harry's plan to follow Ron and the dog into the Whomping Willow. She is confused when Crookshanks is able to immobilise the Whomping Willow, but follows the cat into the tunnel at the base of the tree.

As they hurry along the passageway, Hermione wonders where it could lead. They finally reach a small opening, through which they can see a dusty room. Hermione looks around the room, eyes wide as she takes in the boarded up windows, and, frightened, realises that they must be in the Shrieking Shack. She and Harry creep up the stairs and enter the open room at the top of the building. They dash over to Ron when they see him.

Hermione is petrified when Harry goes to attack Black. She helps Ron hold Harry back, and begs him to stop taunting Black. When Harry attacks Black, Hermione snatches up her and Ron's wands and moves out of the way. She screams for help when she hears footsteps echoing through the Shack but when Lupin arrives he promptly disarms her and Harry.

Hermione is hysterical after Lupin embraces Black, furious with Lupin for betraying them, and tells the others that she has been covering up for him. She tells Harry not to trust Lupin; that he has been helping Black into the castle, that Lupin wants Harry dead, and that Lupin is a werewolf. She tells Lupin she has known about him being a werewolf since she wrote Snape's essay earlier in the year, and feels foolish for not telling people that he was a werewolf when she had the chance.

Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs, "Lupin's Tale"[34]

Hermione thinks the idea that Scabbers is Peter Pettigrew is ridiculous. Her voice trembles as she tries to have a rational conversation with Lupin, certain that the story can't be true. She tells Lupin that she looked up Animagi when doing her homework for McGonagall, and that Pettigrew was not listed as an Animagus on the Ministry's register.

Hermione listens intently as Lupin tells his story. She is horrified when Lupin tells them how he and his friends used to roam the Hogwarts grounds in their animal forms, and wonders how he could have risked the possibility of escaping his friends and biting someone.

The Servant of Lord Voldemort, "Peter's Transformation"[35]

Hermione screams after Snape reveals himself from under the Invisibility Cloak. She tries to reason with Snape as he confronts Black, wanting to hear what Black has to say, but falls silent after Snape loses his temper. Hermione disarms Snape, but is frightened when she realises that Ron and Harry attempted the same thing and that they have knocked the teacher out. She is worried about how much trouble they are going to be in for attacking a teacher.

Hermione asks Lupin why, when Pettigrew has been living in the same dormitory as Harry for three years, and as a supporter of Voldemort, he never tried to hurt Harry before. She later asks Sirius how he managed to escape from Azkaban without using Dark Magic. She is horrified when Pettigrew seizes her robes and begs her for help in an attempt to gain mercy. She says nothing and backs away against the wall.

The Dementors' Kiss, "Full Moon"[36]

Hermione and Harry bring up the rear of the group as they make their way out of the Shrieking Shack, and through the passageway. She clambers out of the entrance, and starts to walk towards the castle.

Hermione is held back by Sirius as the others come to an abrupt stop ahead of them. She is horrified when she remembers that Lupin didn't take his potion that night, and isn't safe. Hermione watches as Sirius and Lupin fight in their animal forms.

Hermione lets out a scream when she sees Pettigrew diving towards Lupin's discarded wand. She dashes over to Ron as Sirius chases after Pettigrew, but can't figure out what Pettigrew has done to him.

Hermione follows close behind Harry, running towards the sound of Sirius's yelping and whining. They stop at the lake shore as the yelping stops, and see Sirius, back in his human form, crouched by the shore. As the Dementors make their way towards them, Hermione tries to help Harry by casting her own Patronus Charm, but cannot do it. She collapses, unconscious, next to Harry as the effects of the Dementors overwhelm her.

Hermione's Secret, "Time-Turner"[37]

As Dumbledore closes the door of the hospital wing, Hermione fumbles with the neck of her robes, and pulls a very long, very fine chain from beneath them. She throws the chain over Harry's neck, covering both of them, and grasps the hour-glass that is hanging from the chain. When Hermione turns the hour glass three times, the dark hospital wing appears to dissolve, and the pair find themselves standing in daylight in the deserted Entrance Hall. Hermione drags Harry into a broom closet off the Entrance Hall, shutting the door behind them, and explains to Harry that they have used a Time-Turner to travel back in time. She presses her ear to the cupboard door, and tells Harry she thinks she can hear herself, Harry and Ron in the Entrance Hall, making their way towards Hagrid's home. Hermione explains that she has been using the Time-Turner all year to get to all of her lessons, doing hours over so she could do several lessons 'at the same time'.

Hermione is worried as she doesn't understand what Dumbledore wants them to do. She and Harry soon realise that in order to save Sirius, they must first save Buckbeak. They creep out of the cupboard and quickly make their way out of the castle; trying to keep out of sight, they race to the safety of the Forbidden Forest and, keeping to the edge of the trees, make their way towards Hagrid's hut. Hiding behind a tree by the hut, Harry and Hermione watch as they see Hagrid open the door to their past selves. Hermione tells Harry that they must wait until the Committee have arrived and seen Buckbeak in the pumpkin patch before they release him, otherwise they will assume that Hagrid has set him free. The pair wait and listen as they hear the milk jug break, and Hermione's shriek when she discovers Scabbers. Hermione is quick to dismiss Harry's idea of running in and grabbing Pettigrew then and there, telling him in a terrified whisper that they are breaking one of the most important wizarding rules by changing time. She tells him that terrible things have happened to wizards who have meddled with time, and that his past self would think he had gone mad if he saw himself bursting through Hagrid's door, and might even attack him in his confusion.

Hermione waits, white faced, as Harry darts over to Buckbeak to free him. She mouths at him to hurry, and is worried that they will be caught by the Committee. She darts from behind the tree and helps Harry pull at Buckbeak's rope, trying to make him move faster. They stand quite still once hidden by the trees, and listen as Buckbeak's disappearance is discovered. Hermione and Harry have to tighten their grip on Buckbeak's rope to stop him from returning to Hagrid. Hermione tells Harry that they will have to hide in the Forest until it's safe to move, then try to rescue Sirius once he has been taken to the castle. She agrees to move closer to the Whomping Willow, but insists that they stay out of sight as they move. Hermione has to prevent Harry from trying to fetch his Invisibility Cloak from the base of the tree, and reminds him that he cannot risk being seen.

After they see Snape enter the tunnel at the Whomping Willow, Hermione ties Buckbeak's rope around the nearest tree, and sits down to wait until they reappear from the tree. Hermione doesn't understand how Sirius was able to avoid the Dementors, as she only remembers seeing swarms of the creatures approaching her, Harry and Sirius before she passed out. She is surprised as she listens to Harry's account of the Patronus that appeared, and wonders who conjured it. She gazes at Harry with a mixture of alarm and pity when she hears his theory about the person who conjured the Patronus.

As they see the group emerge from the Whomping Willow, Hermione is anxious that Harry wants to do something to prevent Pettigrew from escaping. She successfully persuades him not to attempt anything, but panics when Harry realises that Lupin, the werewolf, is going to run straight towards their hiding place in a matter of minutes. She rushes to untie Buckbeak and they run as fast as they can towards Hagrid's hut, entering the house just in time to escape the werewolf.

Hermione is suspicious when Harry tells her he wants to head outside once more, afraid that he is going to try to interfere with events once more. She remains in Hagrid's house with Buckbeak when Harry leaves. She eventually leaves Hagrid's hut with the Hippogriff, and arrives by the lake after Harry has conjured his Patronus, worried about what he has done. Hermione is angry with Harry for interfering with the past, after he promised he was only going to keep a lookout, but is astounded when he explains what happened and impressed that Harry managed to perform such advanced magic.

Hermione and Harry remain hidden behind the bush as they wait. They watch Snape conjure stretchers for their past selves and Sirius and see him escort the group and Ron back towards the castle. Hermione tells Harry that they have about forty-five minutes before Dumbledore locks the door to the hospital wing, and that they have to rescue Sirius and get back to the ward before anyone realises they are missing. Hermione soon spots Macnair leaving the castle. She climbs onto Buckbeak's back with Harry's help, and holds very tightly around his waist as they take off into the air. She dislikes flying on the Hippogriff.

Hermione tells Sirius to stand back when they realise the window to Flitwick's office is locked, gripping the back of Harry's robe with one hand as she uses her wand to open it. Once Sirius is seated behind Hermione on Buckbeak, they fly upwards again, landing on the castle battlements. Hermione and Harry slide off the Hippogriff immediately, and urge Sirius to leave as soon as possible. She and Harry watch as Sirius and Buckbeak fly away into the night.

Owl Post Again, "Professor Lupin's Office"[38]

Hermione tugs on Harry's sleeve as she realises that they have ten minutes to get back to the hospital wing without anyone seeing them. They slip through the doorway behind them, and down the spiral staircase. As they reach the bottom, they hear the voices of Fudge and Snape coming from the corridor, and flatten themselves to the wall as they listen to their conversation. Hermione and Harry wait to make sure they have passed, then start to run in the opposite direction. The pair are diverted when they hear Peeves cackling up ahead, forcing them to hide in an empty classroom. Hermione dislikes Peeves, and tells Harry that she bets the poltergeist is excited that Sirius is supposed to receive the Dementors' Kiss. With one minute to spare, they race towards the hospital wing, slowing to creep along the corridor as they approach the doors. They see Dumbledore appear in the doorway, and hear him give his last instructions to their past selves in the hospital wing. Hermione and Harry rush up to Dumbledore just as he closes the door and goes to magically lock it. They slip back into the dormitory when he tells them the coast is clear. Hermione creeps back into her bed, tucking the Time-Turner back under her robes. As they lie in their beds, eating the chocolate provided by Madam Pomfrey, they hear an angry roar in the distance.

Hermione is silent as Snape accuses her and Harry of helping Sirius to escape. When Ron wakes up, Hermione explains to him what has been going on.

Hermione leaves the hospital wing the next day, along with Ron and Harry. Neither she nor Ron feel like going to Hogsmeade with their classmates, so the trio wander across the grounds, ending up by the lake shore. She acts surprised when Hagrid tells them that Buckbeak escaped, and tells him it is wonderful news.

Hermione passes all of her school exams, and gets three hundred and twenty percent in her Muggle Studies exam. As they pull out of the station on the Hogwarts Express, Hermione tells Harry and Ron that she has dropped Muggle Studies as a subject. She tells them that she can't stand another year like the one she has just had, and that she has handed her Time-Turner in. She is worried about how upset Harry looks on the train, and wishes he would cheer up. Later in the afternoon, Hermione spots something hovering outside the train window. She and Ron are as excited as Harry when they realise that Sirius has sent Harry a letter, and encourage him to read it aloud. Hermione is triumphant when she hears that she was right about Sirius sending Harry the Firebolt, despite being wrong about it being jinxed.

Discovered in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, "Bill and Charlie Weasley"[39]

Hermione is staying at The Burrow before travelling to the Quidditch World Cup with Harry and the Weasleys. Hermione is slightly disapproving of Fred and George's fledgling business, Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, and does not find the incident at Number Four, Privet Drive as funny as the rest of her friends. She and Ron are eager to learn whether Harry has heard from Sirius over the summer, but she stops Ron from asking Harry, as Ginny is in the room with them.

When she and Ginny return downstairs, they finds Bill and Charlie in the garden, having a mock-battle with the dining tables. Hermione hovers near the hedge, torn between amusement and anxiety at their play-fight.

At the dinner table, Hermione listens closely when Ron quietly asks if Harry has heard from Sirius, but receives only a brief answer.

The Portkey, "The Misty Moor"[40]

Hermione walks to Stoatshead Hill to meet the Portkey with Harry and the Weasleys. She travels by Portkey to the campsite, her shoulders bumping uncomfortably into Harry's as they travel, and falls to the ground when it arrives, unable to stay on her feet.

Bagman and Crouch, "The Campsite"[41]

Hermione walks to the Weasleys' reserved camping spot with the rest of the group. She and Harry work together to erect the two tents, figuring out where most of the poles and pegs are supposed to go. They stand back to admire their handiwork when they are finished, but are confused when they see how small the tents are, and worry that their group of ten people won't fit. Hermione joins Ron and Harry as they walk to the campsite tap to fetch water for the group, greeting various fellow students as they go. When Ron points out the Bulgarian posters of their Seeker, Krum, Hermione tells the boys she thinks Krum looks really grumpy, and is unimpressed by the eighteen year-old Seeker. She is overcome with giggles when they pass a Ministry wizard attempting to persuade another elderly wizard, Archie, to exchange his Muggle nightgown for more appropriate pinstripe trousers, and has to duck out of the water queue. She returns only after Archie has collected his water and moved away.

Hermione and Ron are both bought a pair of Omnioculars by Harry before the Quidditch World Cup match. In return, Hermione buys the trio their programmes for the match.

The Quidditch World Cup, "The Golden Stadium"[42]

Hermione joins the Weasleys and Harry in the Top Box at the Quidditch World Cup. She and Ron look round in interest when Harry begins to talk to Winky the house-elf.

Hermione eagerly skims through her programme, and tells the others that there will be a display from the team mascots before the match. Hermione is confused when, during the display by the Veela, she sees Harry and Ron acting strangely. She watches the match avidly and is horrified when she sees Krum and Lynch hurtling towards the ground in pursuit of the Snitch, certain that they are going to crash. She thinks Krum was very brave; she watches him land on the pitch and thinks he looks a terrible mess after the match.

The Dark Mark, "Morsmordre"[43]
Dark mark

The Dark Mark

Hermione hurries towards the woods with Ron and Harry, following the twins and Ginny. She is unnerved when they come across Draco Malfoy, who tells her that the wizards attacking the campsite are after Muggles, and that they would recognise a 'Mudblood' at once. She prevents Ron from rising to Malfoy's bait, and pulls him and Harry with her along the path, leaving Malfoy behind.

Hermione walks along the path, deeper into the woods, with Harry and Ron. She is indignant when they see Winky walking towards them seemingly struggling to walk, and tells the boys that keeping house-elves is nothing more than slavery. She is upset that Barty Crouch made Winky sit in the top box at the stadium when the elf is clearly afraid of heights, and that she can't run away from the campsite riots because she hasn't asked permission. Hermione is exasperated when Ron becomes entranced by the Veela in the wood, and she and Harry march him firmly away from the group, into the heart of the wood.

Hermione is terrified when the Dark Mark appears in the sky, and urges Harry to leave the clearing. She tells Harry that the Mark is the sign of Voldemort, and wants to leave as fast as she can. The trio are prevented from going far by the Ministry wizards who appear in the clearing, and narrowly escape being Stunned. Hermione is horrified when she realises that the wizards believe Winky conjured the Mark, and tries to tell them that it wasn't her voice they heard casting the spell. She is angry with Barty Crouch when he makes it clear he will be punishing Winky, and angry at the way the other wizards were treating the elf. After Barty Crouch leaves with Winky, Hermione makes her way back to the tents with Arthur, Harry and Ron, where they tell the others about the events in the woods.

Mayhem at the Ministry, "Dress Robes"[44]

Hermione arrives back at The Burrow with Harry and the Weasleys after the Quidditch World Cup. She makes Molly Weasley a strong cup of tea when they are all settled in the kitchen, to help with her shock. She and Ron look curiously at Harry when Molly says there hasn't been any post whilst they have been away, and they follow him up to Ron's bedroom where they can talk in private. When Harry tells them that he woke up with his scar hurting the other morning, she gasps, horrified, and starts to make suggestions at once; she mentions a number of reference books, and suggests he talks to someone about it: anyone from Professor Dumbledore to Madam Pomfrey. She is less worried when Harry mentions Professor Trelawney's prediction in the last term of their third year, and tells him he shouldn't pay any attention to what Trelawney says, certain that the teacher is a fraud. Hermione reasons that Sirius may not have replied to Harry's letter because he is too far away: they don't know where he is living, and could be as far away as Africa, a journey that would take Hedwig longer than just a few days. She is annoyed when Ron suggests that he and Harry play a game of Quidditch, and doesn't think Ron is being particularly sensitive. She leaves the room when Harry agrees to Ron's idea, muttering something that sounds very much like 'Boys'.

On the Sunday before they are due to leave for Hogwarts, Hermione sits in the living room at The Burrow, immersed in the Standard Book of Spells, Grade 4. As the conversation turns to Rita Skeeter, and her scathing articles, Hermione becomes angry: she says that Barty Crouch is lucky that Rita Skeeter doesn't know how mean he is to elves, and is furious that house elves are treated no better than slaves.

Aboard the Hogwarts Express, "A Hundred Horseless Carriages"[45]

Hermione travels with Harry and the Weasley family to Kings Cross Station. On the train, she hushes Harry and Ron as they hear Draco Malfoy talking in the next carriage. She is angry when they overhear Malfoy talking about Durmstrang, and says she wishes he had gone there. She tells Harry and Ron about two other wizarding schools, Beauxbatons Academy of Magic and Durmstrang. As the journey progresses, Hermione becomes bored with all the talk of the Quidditch World Cup, and buries herself in The Standard book of Spells, Grade 4. After Ron's confrontation with Malfoy, she tries to calm Ron down, and repairs the shattered window in the compartment door. At Hogsmeade station, she, Harry, Ron and Neville make their way to the carriages, glad not to be travelling across the lake in the cold and rain.

The Triwizard Tournament, "A Late Arrival"[46]

Hermione dashes from the carriage and up the stairs to the castle with Harry, Ron and Neville. They slip and slide across the flooded Entrance Hall and into the Great Hall for the start-of-term feast. Hermione wonders who the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher will be, and worries that they might not have been able to get anyone to accept the position. Hermione is horrified when she learns from Nearly Headless Nick that there are house-elves at Hogwarts. She refuses to eat any more of the food at the feast when Nick tells her that the elves don't get paid, or any of the other benefits she thinks they should receive, and considers the feast to be a result of slave labour. Hermione resists all of Ron's attempts to entice her into eating.

Hermione is alarmed when Professor Dumbledore explains that the Triwizard Tournament was previously discontinued due to the high death toll. She walks back to Gryffindor Tower with her friends; on entering the common room, Hermione glances at the lit fireplace, and gives it a dark look. She walks up to the girls' dormitories muttering 'slave labour' under her breath.

Mad-Eye Moody, "A Pure White Ferret"[47]

Hermione haughtily tells Ron and Harry at the breakfast table that she has decided there are better ways of making a stand against elf rights than refusing to eat the food they produce. She examines her new timetable with Harry and Ron, happy that she no longer takes Divination as a subject. After breakfast and their Herbology class, Hermione makes her way down to Hagrid's cabin with Ron and Harry for their Care of Magical Creatures lesson. She isn't keen on feeding the Blast-Ended Skrewts Hagrid has produced for their lesson, but defends Hagrid when Draco Malfoy starts to question his lesson plan. At lunch, Hermione voices her exasperation at Hagrid's choice of creatures; she expects once they have discovered what Skrewts like to eat, they will be about six feet long. Although she defended Hagrid during the lesson, she thinks Draco was correct, and thinks the best thing would be to destroy the Skrewts before they start attacking the students. She wolfs her lunch down, and tells the boys she wants to go to the library; she leaps to her feet after she has finished her food and makes her way out of the Great Hall at great speed.

Hermione joins Harry and Ron in the queue for dinner after her Arithmancy lesson. She and Harry restrain Ron after Draco taunts him with The Daily Prophet article about Arthur, grabbing onto the back of Ron's robes to stop him from launching himself at Draco. Hermione leaves dinner early as she wants to return to the library. She tells Harry and Ron that she isn't going to do homework, but won't reveal anything further.

The Unforgivable Curses, "Professor Moody"[48]

Hermione arrives just in time for the Defence Against the Dark Arts lesson, having been in the library. She sits in the classroom with the other students, waiting for the lesson to begin. When Moody asks whether the students can tell him of any forbidden curses, Hermione's hand flies into the air, but is overlooked by Moody. Hermione tells Moody to stop performing the Cruciatus Curse on the spider on his desk when she notices Neville's reaction to the Curse. Hermione's hand shakes as she raises it to volunteer the name of the final Unforgivable Curse: the Killing Curse. She hurries Ron and Harry out of the classroom when the lesson finishes, worried about Neville.

Hermione enters the common room as Ron and Harry are doing their Divination homework, carrying a sheaf of parchment in one hand and a box in the other. She happily tells them that she has just finished her work, and shows them the contents of the box: fifty badges, all different colours, bearing the letters S.P.E.W. Hermione tells Ron and Harry that she is starting a society, the Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare, to help make a stand against the lack of elf rights. She ignores Ron's continued insistence that elves like being enslaved and talks loudly over his protestations. Hermione beams at the boys after she explains her membership plan for S.P.E.W. before being distracted by Hedwig's arrival at the window.

Hermione is eager to hear what Sirius's letter says. Hermione attempts to calm Harry down after he reads that Sirius is coming back, shocked by the news herself.

Beauxbatons and Durmstrang, "The Carriage"[49]

Hermione is cross with Harry when he tells her and Ron about the letter he sent Sirius, as she knows he has lied to Sirius. She tries to argue with Harry more about the letter, but drops the subject after Ron insists.

Hermione is uncertain about Professor Moody's plans to place the students under the Imperius Curse during their Defence Against the Dark Arts lesson, as she knows the curse is illegal. She goes silent after Moody tells her she can leave the lesson if she doesn't want to learn about the curse the hard way. Hermione is the only student in Professor McGonagall's Transfiguration class who has managed to turn a hedgehog into a satisfactory pincushion. She tries not to look too pleased with herself when McGonagall points this out to Dean Thomas.

Hermione stands with Harry and Ron, shivering slightly as they wait for the Durmstrang students to arrive at Hogwarts.

The Goblet of Fire, "The Unexpected Champion"[50]

Hermione is unimpressed by the fuss surrounding Viktor Krum as they walk back into the school; she frustratedly reminds Ron that Krum is only a Quidditch player. She is irritated when she sees the Beauxbatons students sitting miserable and shivering at the Ravenclaw table and wonders why they didn't bring cloaks with them. She dismisses Ron's claim that the beautiful Beauxbatons student, Fleur Delacour, is a Veela, and tells Ron he is the only one gaping after Fleur like an idiot. She points out the arrival of Barty Crouch and Ludo Bagman at the staff table to Ron and Harry.

Hermione is uncertain about Fred and George's plan to enter their names into the Goblet of Fire after taking a drop each of Ageing Potion, and knows that Dumbledore will have anticipated this type of situation when drawing the Age Line. She, Ron and Harry visit Hagrid in his cabin; Hermione takes her box of S.P.E.W. badges with her to try to persuade Hagrid to join the society. She goggles when she sees Hagrid dressed in his smart but unusual clothes, apparently lost for words. She and the two boys have lunch with Hagrid; Hermione unearths a large talon in her 'beef' casserole and rather loses her appetite. She is disappointed whe Hagrid refuses to join S.P.E.W., and stuffs her box of badges back in her coat pocket. Hermione is amazed when Hagrid puts on eau-de-Cologne before he leaves the cabin; she is indignant when she later sees Hagrid making his way up to the castle accompanied by Madame Maxime, having thought he was waiting for herself, Harry and Ron. She makes her way to the Great Hall with Harry and Ron for the Hallowe'en feast and the announcement of the Triwizard Tournament champions.

The Four Champions, "Four Triwizard Champions"[51]

Hermione stares at Harry in disbelief when his name is read out by Professor Dumbledore. She stares blankly back at Harry when he tells her and Ron that he didn't put his name in the Goblet of Fire, but says nothing. When Harry's name is called once more by the Headmaster she whispers for him to go, and gives him a slight push to make him get up from the table.

The Weighing of the Wands, "Potter Stinks"[52]

Hermione joins Harry for a walk in the Hogwarts grounds the morning after the announcement of the Triwizard champions. She believes that Harry didn't enter his own name into the Goblet of Fire, the look on his face when his name was read out was enough to convince her of his innocence. She thinks the reason Ron is acting the way he is is because he is jealous of Harry. She knows that it is not Harry's fault he is often the centre of attention, but tries to explain why Ron is feeling this way to Harry. She finds their estrangement irritating and asks Harry to talk to Ron and sort it out. Hermione encourages Harry to write to Sirius to let him know what has happened, knowing that Sirius would rather hear it from Harry instead of in the Daily Prophet.

Hermione walks with Harry to the dungeons for their Double Potions lesson after lunch. When the pair arrive outside Snape's dungeon they find the Slytherins waiting outside. Hermione tries to warn Harry not to rise to Draco Malfoy's bait, but is unsuccessful. She is hit by Malfoy's Densaugeo hex after it richochets off Harry's Fernunculus spell; her front teeth begin to grow at an alarming rate, past her bottom lip and towards her chin, making her look more and more like a beaver. She lets out a terrified cry when she feels her teeth, panicking. She is forced by Ron to show Professor Snape her teeth when he arrives on the scene. Her eyes fill with tears when Snape tells her he can see no difference in her appearance and runs down the corridor out of sight.

Hermione does not come down to the Great Hall for dinner after the events that afternoon; Harry guesses that she is still in the hospital wing having her teeth fixed.

The Hungarian Horntail, "Four Dragons"[53]

Hermione is cited in Rita Skeeter's article for the Daily Prophet as being Harry's love interest. Hermione tells Harry to ignore the nasty comments made by other students after the article is published. She is furious that Harry and Ron are still not talking to each other, and tries to persuade Harry to make up with Ron.

Hermione asks Harry to join her in Hogsmeade at the weekend. She had planned to meet up with Ron at the Three Broomsticks but cannot persuade Harry to agree. She hates talking to Harry when he is hidden by the Invisibility Cloak, as she never knows whether she is looking at him or not. Hermione and Harry make their way to the Three Broomsticks pub after they visit Honeydukes Sweetshop. She buys Harry a Butterbeer, slipping it to him under the Cloak after she sits at the table in the corner. She is happy when she spots Hagrid at the pub with Professor Moody and greets the pair. Hermione is surprised when Harry says that Hagrid wants to meet him at midnight, and wonders what he is up to. She isn't sure that Harry should go, as it might make him late to meet Sirius in the common room.

The First Task, "Facing the Dragon"[54]

Hermione is dragged into the grounds for a walk by Harry after breakfast. She hears all about his conversation with Sirius and about the dragons as they walk around the lake. They try to think of a spell that will subdue a dragon as they walk, and go to the library to continue their research.

Hermione helps Harry to practise his Summoning Charm after his talk with Professor Moody. Hermione refuses to skip Arithmancy to help Harry practise but continues to help him after dinner. The pair stay awake until after two o'clock in the morning working on the spell until she is happy he has mastered it.

Hermione arrives at the champions' tent after the first task with Ron in tow. She stands nervously between the boys as they talk. She bursts into tears when the boys finally make up. She tells them they are both stupid; she stamps her foot on the ground before giving both of them a hug and dashing away, practically howling as she leaves.
