In fact, it depicts a person dressed in a long cape, obviously a wizard, whom Chandler was content to label as ‘”mysterious character”.And that’s a good thing, because Harry Potter fans love unraveling mysteries.

Hogwarts Legacy: will we play the heir to a powerful wizard that everyone knows?

We know, in Hogwarts Legacy Ancient Magic will have an important role. For a reason probably related to his family heritage, our character will be able to use it to carry out his quest, without letting it fall into the hands of the enemy. But for that, of course, it will be necessary to learn to master it and, therefore, to know it better. Unlocking the secrets of this Ancient Magic therefore promises to be one of the core elements of the Hogwarts Legacy experience. But what is ancient magic?

If you have read the Harry Potter books or watched the movies, you have come across this very special form of magic. The sacrifice that allowed Lilly to protect her child from Voldemort when she was just a baby was the Old Magic. The spells that protected Harry when he was around his only family were Ancient Magic. The unbreakable bond between a wizard and the one who saved his life was the Ancient Magic. While many examples exist, relatively little is known about this powerful form of magic that has been lost to time. But given the different images we’ve seen of Hogwarts Legacy, the latter could very well be related to one of the most famous wizards: Merlin.

The one who was a student at Hogwarts (Slytherin) before joining King Arthur’s court has always been presented to us as one of the historical pillars of the magical world of Harry Potter, without his story being told in detail. Hogwarts Legacy may well correct that mistake. At least that’s what the game’s lengthy preview from last March suggests, which touched on the old wizard on numerous occasions. At this point, perhaps some already see where we come from…

undeniably, the book in this Collector’s Edition is related to Ancient Magic and shows us once again the importance it will have in the game. The symbol of Ancient Magic appears on its edge. Also, the atypical wand floating above is explicitly qualified as “Ancient Magic Wand”. It is now when we leave room for the theories that scare the players. Assuming this book has significant in-game value, it’s very likely to be the ancient grimoire of a master of Ancient Magic that supposedly guides us in our learning or be part of the latest revelation about our past. In view of the above, one immediately thinks of this dear Merlin. But he is not the only one who can claim the title…

Merlin or Morgana?

If you know a little about the history of Merlin (or the lore of Harry Potter), you may know that the wizard had a powerful rival: Morgan le Fay, also known as Morgana. remember in Harry potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, it’s his chocolate frog card which Ron discovers on the train, complaining that he already has six. You can imagine, if there is a Chocolate Frog card with her effigy, it means that Morgana was not just any. The Queen of the Isle of Avalon has distinguished herself in many magical events and is remembered as a fearsome adept of the Dark Arts. Forces of Evil that seem to have a great importance in Hogwarts Legacy (just like Morgana)…

It does not take more for players to see a new theory: What if Morgana was the ancestor of our young wizard? On paper anyway, it looks pretty good. If you’re the heir to a powerful evil witch, all the intrigue about whether or not to use dark magic makes sense. In fact, this principle of inheritance could also adhere to Merlin, who would then turn out to be a less Manichaean character than expected. A twist that is not unusual in the wizarding world as Dumbledore suffered the same treatment.

In any case, if we look at the chocolate frogs of the two wizards, the silhouette could visually correspond to one or the other. An ambiguity that could be wanted, supporting a little more another theory that has been going on for several months. La theory that our character will have to choose between following in the footsteps of Merlin or Morgana you’ve been surfing the web for a while. This is particularly due to the duality that has been established between the two magicians over the different images revealed. Especially since the elements exposed so far (election system, black magic, ancient magic, the notion of inheritance, etc.) are consistent with this potential narrative framework.

Of course, as with all theories, don’t get too carried away. As some players have pointed out, this mysterious character also resembles our own, as shown on the cover of the game. Thus, this great book that raises so many questions could only have an aesthetic function, breaking the theories about Merlin and Morgana… The answer, we will have it on February 10 (or maybe sooner if Chandler, Avalanche and Warner decide to guide us a bit).
