Many have agreed that Hermione Granger is one of their favorite characters. I have to say she runs a tight race with Ron Weasley but, at the finish line, who can argue that Hermione is one of the most enduring characters written.
Insecurity. And she works from that base in all she does. Holding herself to the highest standards to make up for the fear that she may be inadequate. She is a little bossy in her efforts to help those around her be all that they can be.
These weaknesses make her strong. She has compassion for the less fortunate and is always aware of the helpless who stand in the wings i.e. Neville Longbottom, half-giants, and house elves. She is loyal, instinctive, intelligent, clever, brave and protective of those she loves.
Hermione is the most adorable character ever. She inspires me.
How about you?
