The professors in Harry Potter are a key part of the story. They give us insights into the Wizarding World before Harry’s start school as well as shaping our golden trios lives.
Our Hogwarts Legacy professors will form a key part of our story. Although we will only attend lesson as part of the storyline rather than a timetable, they will teach us more than levitation spells and transfiguration.
If both Professors and Students are well fleshed out then this could be a very engaging game.
This is a work in progress so be sure to check back for the latest updates as they are released.
Known Professors in Hogwarts Legacy
Phineas Nigellus Black who to this day remains the least popular Headmaster Hogwarts has ever know, make little effort to hide the utter disdain he has for his students.
He is a cantankerous, lazy and vain pure-blood with a myopic view of the world and a condescending and unjustifiably superior attitude.
Wildly ill-suited to his job, his goal is to do the least amount of work possible and avoid exposure to the student body – preferring to focus on his status in the wizarding world and his surgically manicured beard.
Role: Magical Theory
The Magical Theory Professor at Hogwarts left behind his aspirations of working for the Ministry of Magic to follow his wife, Miriam, around the world as she researched the seeming disappearance of ancient magic.
Fig eventually grew weary of this quest and left her to continue on here own while he took the job of Magical Theory professor at Hogwarts.
When Miriam was killed during her travels, Fig felt responsible because he was not there, a guilt that haunts him to this day.
He is determined to understand how and why she died and to finish her work.
Fig is a kind, knowledgeable professor and will be one of the players greatest allies during their time at Hogwarts – with the respect to the trials they will face both inside and outside the castle walls.
Matilda Weasley is and exceptionally talented witch with a background as a cursebreaker for the Ministry – known for her composure and extraordinary wandwork. She is a firm but fair Transfiguration Professor and a slightly intimidating, well-respected Deputy Headmistress.
Professor Weasley has been tasked with getting the player up to speed in their studies and introduces them to their Wizard’s Field Guide and the Room of Requirement – both of which are invaluable resources for a new fifth-year with a great deal to learn.
London-born Professor Garlick grew up in a household full of Muggles and didn’t feel at home until she was a student at Hogwarts.
In fact, she will tell you that it was at the famed school of witchcraft and wizardry she finally ‘blossomed’ herself – and discovered her extraordinary affinity for magical plants.
Her sunny demeanour and flowery language charm colleagues alike, prompting some students to worry she may one day leave them for another greenhouse. But Mirabel Garlick would never leave her students. So even if the right witch were to come along, she’d simply have to love Hogwarts as much as Mirabel does.
Jovial and lighthearted with a perpetual twinkle in his eye, Professor Ronen considers his students’ friendships and extracurricular activities to be just as important as the subject of Charms itself.
In response to having being tutored by a rather austere father before and during his years at Hogwarts, he developed a passion for games of all forms – particularly Gobstones. (He allegedly met his wife during an especially lively Gobstones tournament.)
To the delight of most of the students, his unorthodox teaching style often incorporates gameplay.
Teaches: Defence Against the Dark Arts
The stern but likeable professor Hecat takes her teaching responsibilities quite seriously.
After a successful career with the Ministry of Magic – during which she is rumoured to have spent time in the Department of Mysteries – she retired to become Hogwarts’ Defence Against the Dark Arts professor. Though she is happy to be at Hogwarts, some believe her hands-on teaching method satiates an innate desire for action.
The gruff and keenly astute Professor Sharp enjoyed a lengthy and successful career as an Auror until an injury forced him from the field.
Not wanting to push parchment around a desk at the Ministry, Sharp decided his time would be better spent sharing his extensive experience involving battle-worthy draughts and elixirs with the students at Hogwarts.
Not easily impressed and wholly unwilling to suffer fools, he takes genuine pride in his students who excel in his class despite his challenging curriculum.
