Starting a game set in the fantastic Harry Potter universe implies the possibility that we will see many winks to the adventures of the Boy Who Survived. And it is that Avalanche Software has taken it upon himself to enter details into Hogwarts Legacy that fans of the books and movies will love, such as a director closely linked to Sirius Black either a vice principal whose hair color is reminiscent of the most famous family of the franchise.
The background of these characters is nothing more than a rather interesting addition for those who enjoyed all the novels in the Harry Potter saga, and today we have a reason to expand the list of details of the Hogwarts Legacy students with Ominis Gaunt, a student of Slytherin house. And it is that the most astute will have realized that this student has a certain relationship with the well-known Lord Voldemortdespite the fact that this villain does not appear in the game.
In the event that you have chosen the Slytherin house in Hogwarts Legacy, you will have known the history of Ominis the first time you entered the common room. Here, the young man explains that his family is not only pure-blood (unlike other students, who have Muggle blood among his relatives), but is also closely linked to the dark magic. In this sense, the Gaunts have come to cast the Crucio curse on innocent Muggles just “for sport”, but Ominis wanted nothing to do with this cruel activity.
Beyond the use of Unforgivable Curses, what is the relationship between Ominis and Voldemort, also known as Tom Marvolo Riddle? In the Harry Potter saga it is discovered that Voldemort was a direct descendant of Salazar Slytherin, founder of the house with the same name, and his mother was called Merope Gaunt. In this way, it is evident that there is a connection between the two characters due to the original surname of Tom Riddle’s mother, although it is clear that they did not meet in Hogwarts classes.
Hogwarts Legacy is already a bestseller
Leaving aside these curiosities, which have nothing to do with the story of the installment, it is clear that Harry Potter fans really wanted to enter the most famous school of magic and wizardry in the world, as Hogwarts Legacy is being a real sales success. At the moment, we know that the title published by Warner Bros. has set milestones on Steam, It is among the best sellers on this platform and, in terms of physical editions, has surpassed the numbers achieved by Elden Ring at its launch, at least in the UK.
