Character Creation in Hogwarts Legacy

You start off as a Fifth Year in Hogwarts Legacy. This means the protagonist is accepted pretty late and is just thrown into the world of Hogwarts from the get-go. We aren’t exactly sure how much time passes between the beginning of the game till the end, but we can still make an estimate.

When you start off, you make it just in time for the Hat Sorting Ceremony where you choose your Hogwarts House. But as you learn magic tricks and progress through the main story, you’ll be pretty much preparing for your O.W.L exams which happen right before summer vacations start for Fifth-Year students.

How Old is Your Character in Hogwarts Legacy?

As for the character’s age. We can only make a guess. When students are shipped off to Hogwarts in Year One, they’re only 11 years old. Do the math. The protagonist makes it to Hogwarts in Year 5, so the character is only 15 years old.


It’s kind of a bummer we can’t tinker with our Hogwarts School Years and Age in Hogwarts Legacy and see your character age. But that doesn’t take away from the brilliant gameplay and story experience that Hogwarts Legacy is.
