Hogwarts Legacy character creation guide

Character creation in Hogwarts Legacy occurs as soon as you start the game. There are multiple panels that allow you to change a hero’s appearance:

  • Presets – Choose from several preset options where each character already has a predetermined face, complexion, hairstyle, and more.
  • Face Wear – This panel lets you pick the shape of the face, skin color, and glasses.
  • Hairstyles – Here, you’ve got different hair colors, as well as dozens of hairstyles. Sadly, there doesn’t seem to be anything that’s a bit more “punk/rebellious.” I guess we all gotta be good students at school.
  • Complexion – This lets you add freckles, moles, and scars. The complexion of your hero can also be slightly altered.
  • Eyebrows – This part has picks for eye color, eyebrow color, and eye shape.
  • Finalize Your Character – This last panel has several nifty options that you can assign:
    • Name – Of course, you’d name your character.
    • Difficulty – Choose from “Story” to “Hard.”
    • Voice – Voice One is a masculine voice, whereas Voice Two is more feminine. The pitch can also be adjusted.
    • Dormitory – This lets you select whether your character is considered a Wizard or a Witch. This is regardless of your character’s looks or voice.

Once you’re done with Hogwarts Legacy character creation, you’ll begin the introductory chapter. That will take you quite a while, eventually leading to the Sorting Ceremony and choosing your House.

Hogwarts Legacy is available via Steam.
