In Hogwarts Legacy, you'll get the chance to learn dark magic and harness it during your wizarding adventure. This requires you to interact with Sebastian Sallow, a Slytherin student you'll encounter in-game. In this guide, you'll learn whether you should turn on Sebastian in Hogwarts Legacy, when you encounter a crucial plot point of the main story.

However, you're not pressured to immediately make decisions in the game, and this is applicable to Sebastian's quest as well. You'll have enough time and multiple chances to make your choice.

Should you turn Sebastian in?

Sebastian Sallow befriends the player during the main story, and you can learn some powerful magic from him. He guides you in learning the three Unforgivable Curses. You'll see Sebastian having some action with the Killing Curse, Avada Kedavra, on his uncle in-game.

You'll encounter the choice of whether you'll turn in Sebastian or not, in the quest titled In the Shadow of Fate. You need to decide if you'll turn in Sebastian for using the Killing Curse. Ominis Gaunt, a fellow Slytherin student, brings up the decision to you, asking what you want to do about it. You’ll be given the choice of turning Sebastian in or not.

What happens if you turn in Sebastian in Hogwarts Legacy?

Have an opinion on this article? We'd love to hear it!

If you decide to turn in Sebastian, he'll never be seen again and his spot in the game's ending will be replaced by Ominus. It's assumed that Sebastian will be sent to Azkaban for using the Killing Curse.

However, if you don't turn him in, you'll be able to see Sebastian around Hogwarts, and he will have his spot in the ending. Moreover, he'll give you another chance to learn the three Unforgivable Curses in the game's latter parts.

Your choice in this matter can greatly affect the game. Without Sebastian, the game's ending will feel flat and Sebastian won't have the chance at remorse for his actions. But letting him go free would change that and give him that chance.

Ultimately, there's no moral weight in-game to turn in Sebastian. You as a player won't be punished for using dark magic throughout Hogwarts Legacy. This all boils down to what kind of experience you want to have as a player, such as learning dark magic and seeing all of Sebastian's story.

Either choice is fine, as they won't affect your character in-game. But again, learning dark magic would make you much more efficient in combat.

With that, we hope you can make your decision on turning in Sebastian in Hogwarts Legacy! For more guides like this, check out how to beat the Pensieve Guardian, and how to get into the Headmaster's Office. Also, check out our guide to Sophronia Franklin's quiz answers.
