Hogwarts legacy lets you make your own character, and the character creator is pretty in-depth. Here is how to make a character in the game.

Hogwarts Legacy takes place hundreds of years before the movie. In this game, you get to play as a fifth-year transfer student who has just come to Hogwarts. This way, the game doesn’t need to start your character as a child and teach you different things about Hogwarts at the same time.

Since you don’t play as any of the pre-existing movie or book characters in this game, you get to choose how your character looks. There are many options and sliders to make the best version of yourself in the game. So, here is a guide on how to create a character in Hogwarts Legacy.

How to Create a Character in Hogwarts Legacy

You can do a lot of customization for your character in Hogwarts Legacy. When you start the game for the first time, you will be greeted with this character customization menu. There are a total of six different menus, each containing several options. So, let us go through each menu and break down everything inside it.

First Menu: Presets

Presets are some of the pre-made characters that Hogwarts Legacy presents you with. There are no crazy sliders to change face, nose, or eye position. So these will be the basic body types for the character you are making. You can choose either a male or a female preset depending on what you want to use in the game.

And finally, you have the option of using glasses or no glasses. The game has three different types of glasses for you to choose from.

The complexion menu lets you add different details to your character. You can use the complexion slider to make different grey or dark spots on the face. Similarly, the Freckles and Moles sliders can be used to add moles and frickles on different face positions by various densities. Finally, you can either go with no scar or choose a scar from the options the game gives you.

Sixth Menu: Finalization

Finally, for the last menu, you have two choices for the voice. Voice One is the male voice, while Voice Two is the female voice. It doesn’t matter which type of body you choose. You can use either voice for the character despite the body type.

After choosing the voice, you can adjust its pitch using the slider to change how the voice sounds. Then you need to choose the difficulty and name your character. As a final option, you can choose if you want to be a part of the Wizards or Witch dormitory.
