The woman was bloody gorgeous. - Alexander McLaggen
As a child and young teenager, Hermione's hair was very bushy, and of a lighter brown that it currently is. Despite her parents both being dentists, Hermione also had slightly larger front teeth, though they are now at a more preferable size, having been shrunk after becoming subject to a Densaugeo spell as a student. She often wears robes around the school, though being a muggle-born, she wears regular clothes quite a lot too. Most of her clothes are either blue, purple, or black, though she'll sometimes wear other colours as well. She is portrayed by Rachel Weisz.
Personality and TraitsEdit
"Yeah, but you're also a Malfoy now, and you're not terrorising people." - Christopher Weasley
Hermione has loved reading every since she was a young child, a hobby which still keeps her occupied to this day. She has also moved on to writing works of her own. Arithmancy is still her favourite subject, though she chose to teach Charms over that subject as she believed she could influence more students through the more popular subject than the more academic one. Hermione demands respect and good behaviour from her pupils, and is pleased to see them do so most of the time. She has a dislike of fingerprints on windows, as well as forgetting things, the latter being far less peculiar than the former. Disrespect and poor behaviour are not things that she would encourage, and Hermione also despises her father-in-law Lucius Malfoy. Her strengths lie in magic, in addition to being able to calm her husband when he becomes angered or stressed. Since joining Hogwarts, the academic subjects such as Ancient Runes and History of Magic have been another strength of hers. However, Care of Magical Creatures was one of the few subjects at which she was not very good at, by comparison anyway. Foreign languages are not something she is very good at, except for ancient runes, and Hermione can be very sensitive to other people's comments. She often jumps to conclusions before all of the evidence has been laid before her, but those conclusions more often than not turn out to be correct. She fears that her family will be harmed in an attempt to get at her, which would be a successful way of doing so. Hermione doubts that her marriage with Draco Malfoy will last.
Hermione Jean Malfoy was born on September 17th 1979 in London to Wendell Granger and Monica Granger. (Wendell and Monica were used as forenames as JKR does not specify any other forenames for Hermione's parents during the series.) There she grew up without any siblings, though Harry and the younger Weasley children were people that she would later consider to might as well be her brothers and sisters. On her eleventh birthday she recieved her invitation to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, which her immediate family were surprisingly calm and happy about, despite being muggles. There she met Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley, as well as the many other students in her year group. Many adventures and problems crossed their paths, but they leapt each hurdle, though they did stumble on a few. After Lord Voldemort was defeated, Hermione returned to Hogwarts to finish her NEWTs. Upon exiting Hogwarts on her very last day of school, she was greeted by none other than Draco Malfoy. The two of them went out for dinner that evening, and discovered that the people they had once thought they had known as students was quite different. It was a matter of months before the unlikely couple became official, attracting much attention in the Daily Prophet, as well as from Lucius Malfoy. It was then that Lucius decided he didn't like it, but he doubted Draco would stay with her for long. The following year, they became engaged, and married the year after that. Shortly after Hermione had become a Malfoy, she recieved news that Minerva McGonagall had passed away, and that Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry had been left in her care, only three years after Voldemort's death. As was requested by Hermione's idol, she became the Headmistress. Since then she has had two daughters, Jaslene and Pandora, and Lucius has been spending the last few years putting all of his effort into splitting his son and Hermione.
There were many uncertainties regarding the marriage of Draco and Hermione, mostly because of their opposite heritages. However, the two of them have worked to try and keep their marriage in one piece, a task made more difficult by the shadow of Draco's father. Draco is the father of Hermione's two daughters, who both currently attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Jaslene is the eldest of Hermione's two daughters. Draco is very protective of her and spoils her a little, though the same could be said for his other daughter as well. Hermione is also protective of Jaslene, and delights to see her happy, though doesn't feel that she will learn the way of the world if her parents cover her in bubblewrap every time she walks out of the door.
Pandora is the youngest of Hermione's two daughters. Draco is very protective of her and spoils her a little, though the same could be said for his other daughter as well. Hermione is also protective of Pandora, and delights to see her happy, though doesn't feel that she will learn the way of the world if her parents cover her in bubblewrap every time she walks out of the door.
Wendell is Hermione's father, and very pleased to see his daughter doing so well in life. However, the two of them do not see each other often, mostly due to the little time Hermione can afford to be away from the castle (and her father being unable to come to Hogwarts for obvious reasons), in addition that Lucius is foul enough around muggle-borns, let alone muggles.
Monica is Hermione's mother, and very pleased to see her daughter doing so well in life. However, the two of them do not see each other often, mostly due to the little time Hermione can afford to be away from the castle (and her mother being unable to come to Hogwarts for obvious reasons), in addition that Lucius is foul enough around muggle-borns, let alone muggles.
Lucius is not somebody that Hermione could say that she gets on with. The mutual dislike between them often requires Draco or Narcissa telling one of them to shut up and calm down, normally Lucius, who is a lot more foul-mouthed and aggressive than Hermione. He is the man responsible for attempting to split Draco and his wife apart, something that neither Hermione or her husband take kindly to. Whether anyone likes it or not, Lucius is her father-in-law. Hermione takes great offence in Lucius trying to convince her children that she and Draco will be splitting up, as they have been convinced to the point that they are siding with their grandfather.
Though she doesn't show as much dislike towards Hermione, Narcissa isn't too fond of Draco and Hermione's marriage either, though she's willing to keep her opinions to herself and at least try and accept that Hermione and her son are married whether she or Lucius likes it or not. Narcissa is a lot more friendly towards her daughter-in-law than her short-tempered husband, which Draco thanks her for.
Whilst Hermione was a student, there was always a certain bond between the two females. Minerva saw Hermione as the perfect student and expected great things from her, and was happy to leave her occupation to Hermione in her will, feeling that she was the perfect woman for the job. Hermione saw McGonagall as a role-model, and has inherited the no-nonsense strategy that her Transfiguration professor had adopted.
Despite having known Kingsley since she was fifteen, Hermione doesn't particularly like him all that much. His becoming Minister for Magic has only fuelled her dislike towards him, and is trying to keep the distance between Hogwarts and the Ministry as long as possible. She will tolerate him, though she isn't at all pleased when he arrives without invitation, or demands explanation for her being late to a meeting at Hogwarts, a place where he isn't as powerful in terms of leadership as he might think.
As well as Hermione being Theodore's godmother, Teddy also replaced Hermione as Charms professor at Hogwarts upon her request. Whilst Theo was a child, he visited her and the Malfoy's often, where he grew to like Hermione and her children, but not so much Draco.
