"Percy got an owl from my dad for being made prefect, but they couldn't aff — I mean, I got Scabbers instead."
—Ronald Weasley tells Harry Potter about Hermes[src]

Hermes (fl. 1991-1995) is a Screech Owl belonging to Percy Weasley. Hermes was purchased for Percy by his father as a reward for becoming a Gryffindor prefect in his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

In 1995, Percy used Hermes to deliver a letter to his brother Ronald, advising him not to trust Harry Potter any longer and side with Dolores Umbridge and the British Ministry of Magic.

Etymology

  • Hermes (Ἑρμής)  was the messenger of the gods in Greek mythology. Coincidentally, this is also the origin of the name "Hermione".
