After some postponements, the time has come in a few weeks and you’ll be able to take the Hogwarts Express directly to Hogwarts and experience an exciting adventure in the Hogwarts Legacy video game. In order to fill the game world with life, in addition to a great environment, suitable sound design and numerous quests, the characters and exciting people must not be missing, of course.
Even before the official release in early February, developer Avalanche Software has announced some of the wizards and muggles. In this article we will introduce you to some of the people you can meet in Hogwarts and its surroundings.
Hogwarts Legacy: Overview of the known characters
These are the professors in Hogwarts Legacy
If you’ve read the Harry Potter books or watched the movies, you already know that the professors of Hogwarts School always play an important role in the plot. This is also the case in the fantasy role-playing game Hogwarts Legacy.
Phineas Nigellus Black
Phineas Nigellus Black is the great-great-grandfather of Sirius Black. Sirius was later the godfather of Harry Potter and always took care of the famous wizard. In Hogwarts Legacy, Phineas holds the position of Headmaster of Hogwarts. He went down in history among the students as one of the most unpopular leaders of Hogwarts.
In his active student days, Sharp belonged to Slytherin House and has since become a potions professor at Hogwarts School. Much like Severus Snape from the Harry Potter books and movies, Sharp is a capable, yet impatient teacher. He relies on absolute discipline in the classroom. Before becoming a professor, he was an Auror in the Ministry of Magic, but he had to resign from his position due to a serious injury. In Hogwarts Legacy, Professor Sharp should prove to be a competent teacher.
Abraham Ronen is the magic professor at Hogwarts. He is considered a fairly easy-going teacher and was a member of Slytherin House before becoming a professor. He met his wife at a Gobstone tournament. This magical marble game was once one of the most popular pastimes of wizard children. When losing points, the lost marble splashed a nauseating liquid on the player.
The subject of defense against the dark arts is one of the most important subjects for students to be able to defend themselves against the evil forces in case of emergency. Dinah Hecat is the professor of the subject at the time Hogwarts Legacy is set. Before retiring, she worked at the Ministry of Magic and then moved to Hogwarts. Despite her aged appearance, the old lady should not be underestimated.
As a student, Mirabel Garlick once belonged to House Hufflepuff and was able to prove herself through excellent merit. In Hogwarts Legacy, she is the professor of herbology at the wizarding school and is quite popular with many students due to her sunny and friendly disposition. Among their specialties are enchanted plants.
In 1890, Professor Eleazar Fig and a student at Hogwarts School were involved in an incident with goblins, who committed a riot. So in the story of Hogwarts Legacy, he should play a crucial role. As soon as more information follows, we will add to this post.
Cuthbert Binns is the History of Magic professor in Hogwarts Legacy, and yes, he is a Ghost by now. He died in his sleep of natural causes in 1890. After becoming a Ghost shortly after his passing, he continued to teach the subject. He pursued his vocation until Harry Potter came to Hogwarts.
(first name still unknown) Onais
The mother of the student wizard Natsai Onai (Gryffindor) is a professor and teacher of divination. When she took up her post at Hogwarts, she also had her daughter transferred to the famous school.
These are the students in Hogwarts Legacy
Amit Thakkar is a fellow student and possible companion of the player in Hogwarts Legacy. He belongs to the Hogwarts house Ravenclaw. He is intelligent, likes to read and has great interest in astronomy. Although he would prefer to document what is happening, he steps in to help his friends in their time of need.
Natsai’s mother is the teacher of divination at Hogwarts School of Magic. When she became a teacher there, Natsai transferred to Hogwarts from Uagadou Magic School in Africa. She is loyal and always wants to „do the right thing“. She is a possible companion for the player in Hogwarts Legacy and belongs to the Gryffindor house.
Another companion for the player is the student Poppy Sweeting. She belongs to the Hufflepuff house and specializes in magical creatures. When caring for or fighting the magical creatures in the magical world, you should be a great help.
Sebastian belongs to the Slytherin house and has the appropriate character traits. In times of need, however, he stands by the people who are close to him. Developer Avalanche Software already let it be known that Sebastian can teach you the Cruciatus curse. To help his ailing sister, he embarks on a dark path and uses more and more dark magic.
