Hogwarts Legacy Man Behind Moons is an important side quest if you want to upgrade the Alohomora spell and let no lock stand in your way.
Of course, first, you need to learn the spell, and you can do so after completing The Caretaker’s Lunar Lament main quest.
Upon learning Alohomora, you can pick level 1 locks, but you can bring Demiguise Moons to Gladwin Moon to upgrade the spell:
- 9 Demiguise Moons will get you the upgrade for level 2 locks
- Another 13 Demiguise Moons will get you the upgrade for level 3 locks
As such, you’ll need to find a total of 22 Demiguise Moons to fully upgrade Alohomora.
To get these Moons, you need to find Demiguise Statues and interact with them.
The problem is that the Demiguise Statues are well hidden and don’t appear on your map even if you get close to them.
Also, you can interact with the Demiguise Statues only during nighttime. Hence, if it’s daytime, make sure that before grabbing a Demiguise Moon, you open your map, press R3/RS (PlayStation/Xbox), and then X/A to make it nighttime.
Now, let’s see where you can find the necessary Demiguise Statues to complete the Hogwarts Legacy The Man Behind The Moons.
Where To Find 9 Demiguise Statues For Gladwin Moon
First, let’s focus on upgrading Alohomora to level 2 because some Demiguise Statues are located behind level 2 locks, and we have to leave them for later.
Therefore, it will be enough for the following 9 Demiguise Statues to have the basic version of Alohomora (level 1).
Below we’ll explain how to get 7 Demiguise Statues from Hogwarts Castle and 2 from The Highlands.
Demiguise Statue #1: On A Crate In A Bathroom
For the first The Man Behind The Moons Demiguise Statue, you’ll have to go to the Defence Against The Dark Arts Tower Floo Flame in The Astronomy Wing.
Then head south without going down the stairs and get outside by opening the door to the left.
Cross the bridge, and go up the stairs to find yourself indoors again.
Now go to the right up another set of stairs and then through the door.
You should now be in a corridor where you have to go through the first door on the right side.
To open the door, you need to use Alohomora on the level 1 lock.
Then head inside what seems to be a bathroom with a fountain in the middle.
You’ll find the first Hogwarts Legacy Man Behind Moons Statue on a crate after you go through the middle door behind the fountain.
Demiguise Statue #2: On A Small Table In Front Of A Fireplace
Now make your way to the Great Hall Floo Flame in The Great Hall part of the castle.
Go through the locked door in the southern corner of the room to find the Man Behind Moons Demiguise Statue on the small table in front of the fireplace.
Demiguise Statue #3: On A Small Table With Small Logs Under It
Another Statue can be found by going to Professor Fig’s Classroom Floo Flame.
Then get into the classroom through the door to the west.
Go up the stairs in the back of the classroom, enter another room through the door here, and you’ll find Demiguise Statue #3 on the small table with the small logs under it by the fireplace.
Demiguise Statue #4: On A Crate Next To A Wheelbarrow
The fastest way to get to the next Hogwarts Legacy Man Behind Moons Demiguise Statue is to start from the Hogwarts North Exit Floo Flame in The Bell Tower Wing.
Once at the Floo Flame, turn toward the castle and then turn northeast. Remain close to the castle’s interior wall and move along until you see some stairs on the left side. The stairs will take you up the wall’ however, instead of going up, check the small locked door under the stairs.
Go through the door using Alohomora because of the level 1 lock, and you’ll find the Statue on the crate next to the wheelbarrow.
Demiguise Statue #5: On A Cabinet
For the fifth Man Behind Moons Demiguise Statue, go to the Bell Tower Courtyard Floo Flame, also in The Bell Tower Wing.
Then head up the first set of stairs to the southwest and go through the door in front of you.
Now go down the stairs to the left, then through the door, and continue on the linear path until you see a dragon statue on your left side.
Make your way through the corridor southeast of the dragon and enter through the first door on the left.
As you can see, you have to use Alohomora again to get rid of the level 1 lock, then head inside.
Immediately turn right as you enter the room, and look behind the stone pillars to spot the Demiguise Statue on a cabinet.
Demiguise Statue #6: Next To A Lamp
Next, head to the Library Floo Flame in The Library Annex.
From here, head directly east and enter the Restricted Section through the gate behind the bookcases.
Then go down the stairs, and when you reach an area with railings, drop down to the floor below.
Now go through the southeastern corridor to find the sixth Hogwarts Legacy The Man Behind The Moons Demiguise Statue, next to a lamp on a table to the left.
Demiguise Statue #7: On A Desk With A Lamp
Demiguise Statue #7 can be obtained by going to the Divination Classroom Floo Flame in The Library Annex.
Then, head up the stairs to the east, and you’ll soon reach a dead end, or so it seems, until a ladder comes down to you.
Climb the ladder to reach a new room, where you have to go north to find the seventh The Man Behind The Moons Demiguise Statue on a desk with a lamp.
Demiguise Statue #8: In The Pitt-Upon-Ford Hamlet
For the eighth Statue, you’ll have to go to the Pitt-Upon-Ford hamlet in the North Ford Bog region.
Refer to our North Ford Bog Demiguise Statue guide here for more details.
Demiguise Statue #9: In The Upper Hogsfield Hamlet
The ninth Hogwarts Legacy Man Behind Moons Demiguise Statue can be found in the Upper Hogsfield hamlet in the Hogsmeade Valley region.
Check our Hogsmeade Valley Demiguise Statue guide for additional instructions.
You now have enough Demiguise Moons to bring to Gladwin Moon, so you can upgrade Alohomora to level 2.
You can easily find the NPC by tracking the Man Behind Moons side quest from your menu.
Then fast travel to the closest Floo Flame you have available to the quest’s marker on your map.
Talk to Gladwin and give him the Moons you’ve acquired by now to upgrade the Alohomora spell.
How To Upgrade Alohomora Level 3
After upgrading Alohomora to Level II, you’ll need to find the remaining Demiguise Statues. Specifically, you’ll need 13 additional Demiguise Moons. Start with the last three in the Castle.
Demiguise Statue #10: On A Cabinet With Books
Hogwarts Legacy Man Behind Moons Demiguise Statue #10 is in The Astronomy Wing, and you should start from the Transfiguration Courtyard Floo Flame.
Then you should go through the door to the south, really close to the Floo Flame.
Once inside, make your way to the door to the west and use Alohomora to pick the level 2 lock.
Head into this room, and you’ll find the Statue on the left side, on the cabinet with the books.
Demiguise Statue #11: On A Table With Two Chairs
For the next Man Behind Moons Demiguise Statue, you need to start from the Beasts Classroom Floo Flame in The Bell Tower Wing.
Turn toward the Floo Flame and enter the building in front of you through the second door to the right.
You’ll have to pick another level 2 lock to get inside.
After entering the building, you can spot the Statue in front of you, on the table with the two chairs.
Demiguise Statue #12: Inside A Storage Room
The last Demiguise Statue in Hogwarts Castle can be found in The Library Annex.
Starting from the Potions Classroom Floo Flame, go through the door to the southeast, then head down the stairs to the left, and you’ll reach a locked door.
Use Alohomora to pick the level 1 lock, then proceed through the corridor and stop at the first door on the left side.
This time you’ll have to pick a level 2 lock to enter a storage room with the Statue on a crate.
Once you are done with all 10 Hogwarts Castle Demiguise Statues, you’ll have to find the remaining collectibles scattered around the open world. To help you with them, simply follow the corresponding guides below.
|Region (Location):||Number of Statues:|
|South Hogwarts Region||2|
Remember that even if you only need 22 Demiguise Statues to complete Hogwarts Legacy The Man Behind The Moons quest, you’ll need all 30 to unlock the Demiguise Dread Achievement/Trophy.
How To Complete The Man Behind The Moons
After you unlock Alohomora Level 3, if you wish to complete The Man Behind The Moons quest, keep finding the remaining Demiguise Statues, and you’ll receive a letter from a new NPC named Piers Pemberton.
He’ll ask you to stop removing the statues and see him in Hogsmeade. When you receive the letter, make sure you track the current quest, and you’ll find Piers on the southeastern side of Hogsmeade.
Talk to him, and he’ll tell you that he is the one who makes fun of Gladwin Moon because, in the past, he was bullied by him. In fact, Piers is Gladwin Moon’s former colleague. During the conversation, answer however you want, then you’ll have to go back to Gladwin and tell him that you found the man responsible for the Demiguise Statues.
Finally, Gladwin Moon tells you he remembers Piers Pemberton, aka Pigtails, and will visit him. Now the quest is complete, and later you’ll receive another letter from Gladwin, telling you that he and Piers met and they are friends again.
