Characters – Hogwarts Legacy

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 and their role.

What would a school be without its teachers? Although you don’t get to spend as much time in class as we might have liked, 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:

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

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:

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. The ghosts you’ll see in Hogwarts Legacy are:

  • Sir Nestor Amset – Headless Hunt member
  • The Bloody Baron – Slytherin Ghost
  • The Fat Friar – Hufflepuff 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
  • The Grey Lady – Ravenclaw House Ghost

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”. Some of the key villains of Hogwarts Legacy are:

  • Ranrock – leader of the goblin rebellion
  • Victor Rookwood – Dark Wizard allied with Ranrock
  • Catrin Haggarty – Dark Wizard
  • Dunstan Trinity – Dark Wizard
  • Tempeste Thorne – Dark Wizard
  • Theophilius Harlow – Dark Wizard

The Vendors of Hogwarts Legacy include:

  • Gerbold Ollivander – Wand Seller of Ollivander’s
  • Thomas Brown – Runs Tomes and Scrolls, Conjuration Vendor
  • Parry Pippin – Runs J. Pippin’s Potions, Potion Vendor
  • Timothy Teasdale – Runs The Magic Neep, Herbology vendor
  • Augustus Hill – Runs Gladrags Robes, Gear vendor
  • Albie Weeks – Runs Spintwitches Sporting Needs, Broom vendor
  • Ethel Wigley – Runs Scrivenshaft’s Quill Shop, Quill vendor
  • Sirona Ryan – Runs the Three Broomsticks, Tavernkeeper
  • Thadeus Travers – Runs Dervish and Bands, alters appearance
  • Madam Cassandra Mason – Hogsmeade shopkeeper (PlayStation exclusive quest)
    • Penny is a servant of Madam Mason’s
  • Unnamed Hog’s Head vendor

Within the Map Chamber below Hogwarts, four portraits stay as guardians of ancient magic. The Keepers in Hogwarts Legacy are as follows:

  • Percival Rackham – Hufflepuff
  • Charles Rookwood -Slytherin
  • Niamh Fitzgerald – Ravenclaw
  • San Bakar – Slytherin
  • Isidora Morgfanach – Ravenclaw (Not actually a Keeper, but appears in their memories)

Some characters just don’t seem to fit in anywhere else, but feature somewhere in the game. Other characters in Hogwarts Legacy are:

  • Arn – Goblin
  • Belgruff – Goblin
  • Elek – Centaur
  • Lodgok – Goblin Metal Trader
  • Beatrice Green
