Game: Hogwarts Legacy
Content Type: Gaming Guides

There are a lot of witches and wizards to keep track of in Hogwarts Legacy, from your teachers, to the companions you meet, to the nefarious villains whose plans you’re tasked with foiling. It can be tough to keep track of everyone, much less find them all! In this guide, we’ll list every character in the game — organized by role — and tell you where you can find them.

Please note that this guide is a work in progress, and will not be complete until the game releases. When it does, we’ll work on updating it ASAP with more information.

What would Hogwarts be without its teachers? While we haven’t had a chance to actually interact with them yet, the professors of Hogwarts Legacy look just as rich and varied as the faculty that was around in Harry Potter’s time. In Hogwarts Legacy, the Hogwarts professors and staff include:

  • Cuthbert Binns, History of Magic Professor
  • Phineas Nigellus Black – Headmaster (and arguably a character who belongs in the Villain category)
  • Noreen Blainey, Hospital Matron
  • Deek – House-Elf
  • Eleazar Fig – Magical Theory Professor
  • Mirabel Garlick – Herbology Professor
  • Dinah Hecat – Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor
  • Bai Howin, Professor of Beasts
  • Chiyo Kogawa, Professor of Flying
  • Gladiwin Moon, Caretaker
  • Mudiwa Onai – Divination Professor
  • Abraham Ronen – Charms Professor
  • Agnes Scribner, Head Librarian
  • Satyavati Shah – Astronomy Professor
  • Aesop Sharp – Potions Professor
  • The Sorting Hat – House Assignments
  • Matilda Weasley – Transfiguration Professor and Deputy Headmistress

Students are the heart and soul of the school, and Hogwarts Legacy has an interesting and diverse cast of students. We’ll list the companions first, and then the rest of the students in alphabetical order. Here are the students you’ll meet in Hogwarts Legacy:

  • Natsai Onai (Companion) – Gryffindor witch
  • Poppy Sweeting (Companion) – Hufflepuff witch
  • Sebastian Sallow (Companion) – Slytherin wizard
  • Amit Thakkar (Companion, we’re pretty sure) – Ravenclaw wizard
  • Astoria – Ravenclaw Witch
  • Lucan Brattleby – Gryffindor wizard, leader of the Crossed Wands Dueling Club
    • Found in the Clock Tower
  • Everett Clopton – Ravenclaw Student
  • Constance Dagworth – Ravenclaw witch
  • Lenora Everleigh – Hufflepuff witch
  • Zenobia Noke – Ravenclaw witch
  • Nellie Oggspire – Gryffindor witch
  • Mahendra Pehlwaan – Ravenclaw wizard
  • Leander Prewett – Gryffindor wizard
  • Imelda Reyes – Slytherin Witch
  • Nerida Roberts – Slytherin witch
  • Hector Weasley – Gryffindor wizard

While not as explicitly crucial to the school’s function as teachers and students are, the castle ghosts and portraits are nonetheless an integral piece of the fabric of the school, providing comic relief (and perhaps the occasional Spiritus Ex Machina) throughout the Harry Potter books and movies. It’s likely they’ll serve a similar function in this game as well. The ghosts you’ll meet in Hogwarts Legacy are:

  • Sir Nestor Amset – Headless Hunt member
  • The Bloody Baron – Slytherin Ghost
  • Sir Patrick Delany-Podmore – Headless Hunt member
  • Fastidio – Poltergiest
  • Fat Lady – Portrait that guards Gryffindor Tower
  • Richard Jackdaw – Headless Hunt member
  • Nearly-Headless Nick – Gryffindor Ghost
  • Peeves – Poltergeist
  • Sir Dumfrey Westland – Headless Hunt member

Based on one of the art book leaks, it appears Gryffindor Students will get a chance to interact with the Headless Hunt in some fashion.

Although much of your time will be spent with the students and staff of Hogwarts, they won’t be your only source of help along the way. Here are the non-Hogwarts allies you’ll have in Hogwarts Legacy:

  • George Osric – Ministry of Magic official, charming and gregarious

The game’s plot has been kept under relatively tight wraps, but it seems safe to assume at this point that the goblin rebellion will feature prominently in the main quest. Whether leading a goblin rebellion against the Ministry of Magic is actually a bad thing is certainly up for debate — goblins seem like they’re pretty oppressed in the Wizarding World — but as far as Hogwarts Legacy is concerned, it seems like the rebels will likely be “the bad guys”. The known villains of Hogwarts Legacy are:

  • Ranrock, leader of the goblin rebellion
  • Victor Rookwood, Dark wizard allied with Ranrock

We haven’t gotten much info on the game’s shopkeepers, but we do know a few of the locations you’ll be able to spend your Galleons. The Vendors of Hogwarts Legacy include:

  • Unknown wand seller of Ollivander’s
  • Unknown clothier
  • Madam Cassandra Mason, Hogsmeade shopkeeper (PlayStation exclusive quest)
    • Penny is a servant of Madam Mason’s
