Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world action RPG set in the world introduced in the Harry Potter books. It’s quite easily one of the 2023 most highly-anticipated games. The game takes place at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1800s. Players can create their own Wizard or Witch and explore the magical open world, attend classes, fly on magical creatures, fight casting spells, make potions and much more.
Just like in any RPG open-world game in Hogwarts Legacy players will meet multiple interesting characters, including Hogwarts professors and Headmaster. Today, Developers tweeted about the next and probably one of the most interesting characters, meet Headmaster Phineas Nigellus Black.
Meet your Headmaster Phineas Nigellus Black
Headmaster Phineas Nigellus Black is one of the least popular headmasters, and he does little effort to hide his true goals. Hogwarts headmaster position is a very prestigious one, and it’s probably the only reason Phineas Nigellus Black is part of Hogwarts student’s life.
Additionally, worth noting that just like many Black family members from the original Harry Potter book Series, he was sorted to Slytherin during his student years in Hogwarts.
Other Hogwarts Characters and Professors
Additionally, from previous tweets and Hogwarts Legacy’s gameplay trailers, we know about other characters.
Hogwarts Deputy Headmistress Matilda Weasley teaches Transfiguration. She helps the player get up to speed in their studies at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Furthermore, she will give the protagonist the Wizard’s Field Guide and introduce them to the Room of Requirement.
Next is Dianah Hecat, who teaches Defence Against the Dark Arts, and takes her teaching responsibilities seriously.
Third on the list is polite and young Herbology professor Mirabel Garlick, who values his students’ friendship as much as his role in their education.
Professor Fig teaches Magical Theory. This kind gentleman knows more about magic than a wizard or witch might think. His wife died shortly after she discovered a mysterious puzzle. And now it will be Mr Fig and the player’s responsibility to help solve the riddle.
Professor Abraham Ronen, who teaches Charms, likes Gobstones tournaments and he is a teacher that values his students’ friendship as much as his role in their education.
Professor Matilda Weasley teaches Transfiguration but before that, she worked as a Cursebreaker for the British Ministry of Magic.
Lastly, Professor Aesop Sharp teaches Potions.
Hopefully, in the upcoming weeks, we’ll know more about the school of witchcraft and wizardry staff. Make sure to check my website for more Hogwarts Legacy news and guides.
