Hogwarts Legacy character creator – all customization explained

It’s been many people’s dream to be able to attend Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry and now you can, just in videogame form. The Hogwarts Legacy character creator allows you to make the character of your dreams before embarking on your journey.

That’s why we’ve created this Hogwarts Legacy character creator guide to help you get a head start on thinking about the kind of student you want to be and what you want to look like as you start shooting spells around.

Below, you’ll find out in what order you create your character in, how to do it, and what options you will be given when you first slap that disc in your console and prepare to ransack Hagrids house and see what he keeps under the bed. Yes, we know all the things wrong with that sentence.

Hogwarts Legacy character creator and customization

When first starting the game, the Hogwarts Legacy character creator will let you create your own wizard or witch that you’ll play as throughout the adventure. This is done by first selecting one of the presets that will get you in the ballpark of what kind of archetype you want to customize.

You are able to change these features in the Hogwarts Legacy character creator:

  • Body – masculine and feminine
  • Face – facial shape presets, skin colours, face accessories
  • Hair – hair color, hairstyle
  • Complexion – freckles, moles, scars, markings
  • Eyes – eye color, eyebrow color, eyebrow shape
  • Voice tone, pitch, name, dormitory

You can choose from a number of face shapes and skin colors, as well as whether your character is going to wear glasses or not. You can also choose from roughly 50 hairstyles and lots of different shades of hair color too.

When it comes to the face, you can adorn yourself with freckles and moles, and scars and markings. This encompasses complexion and shading around the eyes and cheeks, so you can go for that goody-two-shoes Gryffindor look or sinister Slytherin if that’s your thing. Moving on to the eyes, you can choose what eye colour you’d like to have, as well as your eyebrow color and eyebrow shape, of which there are over 30.

The final step in the character creator is to finalize your character by selecting voice tone from two options and then adjusting the pitch of that voice tone. You’ll then give your witch or wizard a first name and last name, choose whether they will live in a witch or wizard dormitory, and then you’re ready to start your wizarding Hogwarts Legacy Journey.

That’s everything we know about the Hogwarts Legacy character creator and how to customize your witch or wizard before embarking on their studies at the school. For more on the game, read our Hogwarts Legacy house sorting guide to see how to sort yourself into the correct house (Slytherin).
