In this Hogwarts Legacy companions guide, we intend to tell you what you need to know about your fellow witches and wizards, from their names and personalities to which house they belong to. Naturally, there are a variety of characters that you can befriend, but it’s these Hogwarts Legacy characters that have your back.
To learn even more about the game, we suggest you check out our Hogwarts Legacy Switch release date guide, in which we divulge information about the game’s story, world, and what you can do – just don’t expect any Hogwarts Legacy quidditch, that popular past time isn’t on offer here.
Anywho, let’s bibbidi-bobbidi-boo onto the Hogwarts Legacy companions.
We Gryffin-adore Natasi, as they’re a fierce and loyal individual that loves adventure and are a brave soul that heavily believes in justice.
Poppy appears to live up to her surname as she looks like a sweetheart with a heart of gold as she holds a deep love for magical creatures, and her kind and pure heart matches that in equal fervour (it’s unsurprising that out of the Hogwarts Legacy houses, her’s is Hufflepuff).
Sebastian is one of your potential companions, and he’s part of the infamous Slytherin house (two members of the PT team very much look forward to joining this house). In terms of his personality, we know that he’s charming, extroverted, and confident in the face of danger. He’s also a caring individual, as evidenced by the love and concern he has for his sister, Anne.
However, his twin sister is sick, and Sebastian believes the secret and last hope of finding a cure lies within the Hogwarts Legacy dark arts – it’s going to be interesting to see how this plays a part in the story, especially since we know that the three unforgivable curses feature in-game. You must follow his side quest in order to unlock some unforgivable Hogwarts Legacy spells.
Aspiring historian Amit prefers books and learning over some thrilling experiences, but you can rely on him for help. His hobbies include stargazing, and you know he has the latest in telescope technology with him.
There you have it, everything we know about Hogwarts Legacy companions, take a look at our Hogwarts Legacy Merlin Trials guide. While you wait for the game to launch on Nintendo Switch, check out our best Harry Potter games guide.
Hogwarts Legacy has drawn considerable criticism during its development, largely due to the fact that the creator of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years.
While Avalanche has confirmed that J.K. Rowling is not “directly involved” in the development of Hogwarts Legacy, it is working with “her team” and Portkey Games, a Warner Bros. label dedicated to launching new experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories. It is currently unclear whether she will earn any royalties from the game’s sale, but it is likely given it is based on her original body of work.
