As the weeks roll by, we get closer and closer to the time all you witches and wizards out there get your acceptance letters to the famous school for witchcraft and wizardry in Hogwarts Legacy. However, this world is different to what all you Harry Potter fans know, as it takes place long before the Boy Who Lived’s birth. In fact, you’re unlikely to recognise the vast majority of the cast.

Luckily for you, we’re on hand to tell you who the Hogwarts Legacy characters are. Be they good or bad, we’re more than happy to help familiarise you with these witches and wizards. Mind you, some aren’t technically alive, but ghosts aren’t exactly new to the legendary school, though floating dead teachers might be.

Of curse, magic is hard, so should you want to know even more about this game, make sure you check out our Hogwarts Legacy companions guide to discover who your true friends are. We also happen to have a list of the best Harry Potter games on Switch and mobile, just in case you chant wait until the Hogwarts Legacy release date to enter this famous world.

Anyway, here are all of the Hogwarts Legacy characters you need to know about.

Hogwarts students

Hogwarts Legacy characters Poppy looking at baby animals

Poppy Sweeting

Poppy is a potential companion and is part of the Hufflepuff house. Furthermore, she has a wonderful and caring personality – we love anybody that shows unconditional kindness to animals.

Hogwarts Leegacy characters Natasi getting ready to run

Natasi Onai

Natasi is another potential companion you can form a strong friendship with, and it should come as no surprise that they boast a loyal and strong personality with a sense of justice. A perfect example of a Gryffindor if we’ve ever seen one. In fact, they embody the saying, ‘Neville give up!’

Hogwarts Legacy characters Sebastian casting a spell

Sebastian Sallow

Sebastian is a potential companion from the Slytherin house, and he loves to be mischievous, though word on the Snapvine is that he’s also extremely charming and caring to those he loves. Though we’re sure he’s bound to be a Slytherining idiot at times.

Hogwarts staff

Hogwarts Legacy characters Fig speaking to a student on a train

Professor Eleazar Fig

Here’s the first professor that we know is here to teach all you witches and wizards at Hogwarts, which means he likely has a crucial role in the story, especially since he has a keen interest in the goblin rebellion. We just hope he’s a bit more cheery than good ol’ Snape, though we won’t hold our breath.

Cuthbert Binns

Why just speak to a ghost when you can be taught by one? That’s right, this brand-new character isn’t just a ghost. He’s actually still a professor, as Cuthbert happily teaches the history of magic. We certainly can’t wait to attend his class and see what other role he has to play in the world.

  • Abraham Ronen – the charms master
  • Hecat – defence against the dark arts professor

Nearly Headless Nick

It’s fair to say that all Harry Potter fans know who Nearly Headless Nick is, and it’s undoubtedly great to see him given not many people from the books and films are present in this rendition of the wizarding world.

Hogwarts Legacy characters Deek speaking to a student


Ah, who doesn’t love a house elf? Deek just so happens to be one in Hogwarts Legacy, and we certainly can’t wait to see more of him.

Hogwarts Legacy characters Victor stood with his mouth open

Victor Rookwood

It appears as though Victor is the main antagonist in Hogwarts Legacy. As such, he’s a dark wizard that likely utilises the three unforgivable curses.

  • The Fat Lady
  • Ranrok
  • Peeves
  • Highwing
  • Penny
  • Cassandra Mason
  • Fastidio

There you have it, all of the Hogwarts Legacy characters you need to know about. If you’re after a different kind of magic, you can check out our picks for the best Disney games on Switch and mobile.
