Hedwig is a fictional creature from the Harry Potter Universe.
Hedwig has no background prior to Hagrid purchasing her.
Hedwig is Harry's first ever pet, and a birthday present from Hagrid. Hedwig is a Snowy Owl, which made her stand out from the over brown owls. Hedwig is a very smart owl, that has never failed a delivery for Harry. Hedwig doesn't play a big part in the series, but she does deliver things for Harry during the summer, and is his only friend then. In his fifth year, Hedwig gets hurt during a flight to deliver a message to Sirius. Grubby-Plank treats her injury, suspected to have been caused by -Dolores Umbridge. In the seventh book, Hedwig dies because of a Killing Curse directed at Harry, that misses, hitting her cage. Hedwig always obeyed Harry, in all of his orders, and she and him were extremely close during summer, as he could not escape the Dursleys at Privet Drive.
Harry was defastated when Hedwig died, after being hit by the killing curse. Harry also felt special, as his pet had just gave it's life to protect Harry, from the persuing death eater.
