Hermione Granger is the smart girl that Harry meets on his first train ride to Hogwarts. Hermione is there for Harry through thick and thin. Her name is pronounced "her-MOY-nee".
Hermione is the daughter of Muggle parents - that is, they are not magical. They are very proud of their wizard daughter, although she is sometimes embarassed that they are not wizards, too. For some people, like Draco Malfoy, that makes her a "lower class" of wizard.
Hermione has studied wizarding since she was small and always knows the answers to all of the questions. She knows about backgrounds of creatures, and histories of characters, and other such things long before her classmates do.
In Book 1, when each of the main 3 character is tested on Harry's way to the Sorcerer's Stone, Hermoine is tested twice. First, she remembers that the plants that have Ron trapped hate light, and next she figures out the potion riddle to get them through.
Hermione and Ron appear fond of each other through the first 5 books, but hide that fondness through arguing with each other, which escalates in book 5 to pretty much non-stop fighting.
