The Main Antagonists in Hogwarts Legacy

As of now, the central conflict in Hogwarts Legacy is the rising goblin rebellion. From the Harry Potter franchise’s perspective, there have been a few infamous rebellions, including one in 1890. This particular rebellion, led by Ranrok the goblin, is where we meet our first antagonist.

Ranrok’s hatred for wizards, primarily caused by the latter’s discrimination towards the goblins, has led him to amass hordes of loyal goblins influenced by dark magic. While Ranrok can use his own magic, his desire to gain additional power fuels his determination to wipe out all wizards and witches. He allies with Dark Wizards to accomplish this, leading to the introduction of our second antagonist, Victor Rookwood.

Victor Rookwood, the second main villain of Hogwarts Legacy, is responsible for leading the Dark Wizard faction during this rebellion. Although not yet confirmed, many suspect he is an ancestor to Augustus Rookwood, a Death Eater who worked alongside Voldemort in Harry Potter. Alongside them sharing the same family name, Augustus’ affiliation with the Death Eaters suggests strong ties to the Dark Arts, much like Victor’s connection with the dark wizard faction.

Hogwarts Legacy will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch through the official website.
