In The Shadow Of Fate is the eighth Hogwarts Legacy relationship quest as part of Sebastian Sallow’s questline, in which you’ll have to choose between turning him in or not for what he did in the catacombs. Your decision during In The Shadow Of Fate Relationship Quest affects Sebastian’s future at Hogwarts.
To unlock In The Shadow Of Fate Relationship Quest, it is mandatory to progress Sebastian’s questline until you complete In The Shadow Of The Relic, where you learn the killing curse, Avada Kedavra. This requires you to progress the main story until you finish the fourth trial during San Bakar’s Trial Main Quest.
Then, Sebastian will send you an owl to meet him in the Undercroft after the events in the catacombs near Feldcroft.
Once you reach the Undercroft, wait for Sebastian and Ominis to finish talking, then speak with Sebastian to begin the In The Shadow Of Fate in Hogwarts Legacy.
How To Complete In the Shadow of Fate in Hogwarts Legacy
As you approach both of them, Ominis Gaunt tells Sebastian Sallow that Anne is devastated after burying Sebastian’s uncle alone. Sebastian claims he did it for her, but Ominis tells him Anne can’t bear the thought of turning him in. Sebastian is shocked and denies any intention of hurting his uncle, but Ominis leaves to give him some time to think. When you talk to Sebastian, he regrets his actions and struggles to understand what happened. Sebastian asks you to speak to Ominis and make him understand his situation, as Anne needs him now more than ever, and you can choose one of the following dialogue options:
- Very well. I’ll talk to him.
- I’m not sure.
Choosing the first dialogue option, you’ll agree to speak with Ominis without hesitation, and Sebastian will be grateful for your friendship. By selecting the second dialogue option, you’ll be unsure of what to do. Then, Sebastian expresses his regret and hopes that everyone can forgive him. Regardless of what happens next, he’s glad you’ve met each other.
Picking either of those two dialogue options, you’ll have to speak with Ominis afterward. Talking to Ominis, he will tell you he doesn’t want to lose Sebastian but feels like there’s no other option. Then, you’ll have to choose between:
- We should turn Sebastian in.
- We must not turn Sebastian in.
What Happens if You Turn Sebastian In
Picking the first dialogue option, you’ll agree with Ominis, acknowledging that you have been trying to justify Sebastian’s actions but that it has gone too far. Ominis agrees to tell the Headmaster and says you must face whatever lies ahead together.
Both of you say farewell, and Ominis promises to be in touch, which will also finish In The Shadow Of Fate in Hogwarts Legacy.
What Happens if You Don’t Turn Sebastian In
Picking the second dialogue option, you will argue that Sebastian regrets what he did and that taking him away would hurt Anne more. Ominis eventually agrees, acknowledging that punishing Sebastian would also punish Anne.
Then, he plans to talk to Anne about your decision, and you’ll thank him for being a good friend. You both agree that you must face whatever comes next together, which will conclude In The Shadow Of Fate in Hogwarts Legacy. The consequences and outcomes of your decision to turn Sebastian in or not can be seen in the final relationship quest as part of Sebastian’s questline, In The Shadow Of Friendship.
