Should you turn Sebastian in during Hogwarts Legacy's darkest quest?
The choice, as they say, is yours.
Warning: This article contains major spoilers for Hogwarts Legacy.
Hogwarts Legacy has been out for a while now, so chances are you're on your second (or even third) run through the game's vast storyline. If you're anything like us, the first run wasn't morally dubious in the slightest. Like Potter himself, you were on the side of good. However, second time round you might as well try out being, well, less wholesome. It's a whole new game to experience!
Now you've decided to play the game on evil mode, let's talk about Sebastian Sallow's dark quest line, and the big question: should you turn Sebastian in or not? (It should be obvious, but the following article will have major spoilers for Sebastian's side mission storyline, up to and including the In the Shadow of Fate mission)
His mission gives players a choice that has massive consequences. The proceeding story will depend on your decision here, so you'll want to make the right choice.
So, should you turn Sebastian in? Don't just be evil for evil's sake. You'll want to think practically as well, regarding what type of experience you want. Thankfully, we've got you covered. Keep reading to find out exactly what will happen if you turn Sebastian in (or not!).
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!
