Hogwarts Legacy In The Shadow Of The Relic is the seventh relationship quest as part of Sebastian Sallow’s questline, in which you’ll learn the last Unforgivable Curse, Avada Kedavra. During In The Shadow Of The Relic, you and Ominis will try to save Sebastian from the Inferi and stop him from using the relic.
But things will not go as planned, and you’ll have to fight against his uncle, Solomon Sallow, which leads to learning the killing curse, Avada Kedavra. To unlock In The Shadow Of The Relic Relationship Quest, you must complete Sebastian’s previous quests until you finish In The Shadow Of Hope.
Also, it is necessary to progress the main story until you’ve completed Lodgok’s Loyalty Main Quest. Then, Ominis will send you an Owl saying he’s gravely concerned about Sebastian and you should meet him and Anne at the catacomb near Feldcroft. We’ve marked the exact location in the image below.
How To Complete In the Shadow of Fate in Hogwarts Legacy
As you reach the Catacombs and speak with Ominis, he will blame you since you encouraged Sebastian. Following that, you may say one of the following:
- I know. This is my fault.
- Sebastian won’t listen.
Pick whatever you want; it doesn’t affect the end result of the quest.
Ominis will then tell you how Sebastian and the entire Hamlet are in grave danger because of the Inferi and that the two of you must save him. Then, you must enter the catacombs with Ominis and find Sebastian.
Where To Find Sebastian at the Catacombs
After entering the catacombs, follow the path straight ahead, and you’ll reach a room full of Inferi. To defeat them, you must first burn them with Incendio or Confringo. Doing so will make them take damage from all sources. Once you’ve taken them out, you’ll encounter another horde of Inferi in the next room.
After you clear the last Inferi in the room, Ominis will tell you that he realized Anne’s going to get Solomon, and he needs to head to Hogwarry to make up a different story before anybody finds out what’s going on. Once you finish the conversation with Ominis, head into the next room and fight a few more Inferi, then follow the path east leading to Sebastian.
You’ll have to create a bridge using the skulls and bones inside the gravesites. Cast Accio on the handles to pull the door of the gravesites and reveal the remains. Then, use Wingardium Leviosa to place them on the bone totems and create a bone bridge.
Cross the bridge and speak with Sebastian, who will tell you about the relic’s ability to control Inferi and cure Anne’s curse. In the middle of the conversation, Sebastian’s Uncle, Solomon, will come in and destroy the relic. You and Sebastian will then have to battle a horde of Inferi and Solomon Sallow at the same time.
After you defeat him, a cutscene will begin in which Sebastian uses Avada Kedavra to kill his uncle. Once that happens, Anne will show up, burn the book, and then leave with her deceased uncle.
Then, you’ll have to follow Sebastian out of the catacombs and talk to him. Sebastian will explain why he killed his uncle, and you can respond with one of the following options:
- No one should know that curse.
- Everyone should know that curse.
If you wish to learn the Unforgivable Curse, Avada Kedavra, choose the second option: Everyone should know that curse. Sebastian will then offer to teach you the killing curse, and you will be given the following options:
- Now is not the time.
- Yes, please.
Choose the second option, Yes, please, to learn the wand movements and unlock the killing curse, Avada Kedavra. Immediately after learning the Unforgivable Curse, you will complete In The Shadow Of The Relic Quest in Hogwarts Legacy. Sebastian Sallow’s next relationship quest in line is In The Shadow Of Fate.
