Warning: This article contains major spoilers for Hogwarts Legacy.


Hogwarts Legacy has been available to almost everyone except Switch owners – until now that is. So, plenty of new players will be wondering if you should turn Sebastian in during Hogwarts Legacy's darkest quest.

Even if you've completed it already and are gunning for a repeat playthrough, it's worth weighing up your options depending if you want an evil character or not.

Playing as an evil character is practically a whole new game, so if you've got the mettle to make some less-than-wholesome choices, you could be in for quite the experience.

But what about poor old Sebastian? His quest has massive consequences for how the story plays from there on out, so it's not a decision to take lightly.

But, to help you come to a final decision (we won't judge you for which one), read on and see what fates await Sebastian.

Should you turn Sebastian in or not in Hogwarts Legacy?

If you've reached the point in the game where you're asking if you should turn Sebastian in, you already know that Slytherin student Sebastian Sallow kills his uncle using Avada Kedavra in the dramatic conclusion of his quest line. It is, without a doubt, the darkest mission in the game.

Later, in the Undercroft, the game gives you the option to turn Sebastian in or to let him get away with the murder of his uncle. Of course, in the real world, murder is a serious crime and should always be reported. But what is the right choice in the game?

We'd say that the choice to turn Sebastian in or not comes down to personal preference and your unique play style.

If you are playing Hogwarts Legacy as a goodie, making the right and honourable choices at every opportunity, it would make sense for your character to turn Sebastian in and make him answer for his crime. It is the morally/legally right thing to do, after all.

However, if you are embracing evil in Hogwarts Legacy and trying to live the life of a Dark Wizard, it would make sense for your character to let Sebastian get away with it. But what does this actually change in the game? We've got the info below.

What happens if you turn Sebastian in or not?

If you're wondering whether the choice to turn in Sebastian has consequences, we're here to tell you that it does. This is what happens based on your choice.

If you turn Sebastian in, he will be expelled from Hogwarts and you will not be able to interact with him again in the game. This means that, if he hasn't already taught you the Unforgivable Curses, now he never will. He will be taken to the Ministry of Magic to face justice.

If you choose not to turn Sebastian in, he will remain at Hogwarts and get away with murder (literally). If he hasn't already taught you the Unforgivable Curses, you can chat to him later and he'll teach you them.

Even if Sebastian does stay in your game, he still won't be a very cheery chappy, because his still-cursed sister wants nothing to do with him. So there are consequences either way!
