Hogwarts Legacy Avada Kedavra Notes & Lore

  • Avada Kedavra is considered one of the three Unforgivable Curses, along with Imperius Curse and Cruciatus Curse, which are considered the most evil spells in the wizarding world and are illegal to use.
  • In the books, Avada Kedavra is described as a green jet of light that shoots from the wand of the caster towards the intended target. This spell is often accompanied by the incantation "Avada Kedavra!", which is said to be derived from the ancient language of magic.
  • In the Harry Potter series, Avada Kedavra is used by various dark wizards, including Lord Voldemort, to kill many characters, including James and Lily Potter, Cedric Diggory, and Severus Snape. The spell is also used by Voldemort in his attempt to kill Harry Potter, which ultimately leads to the resurrection of the Dark Lord.
  • It is said that the spell is difficult to cast and requires a great deal of magical power, making it even more dangerous. The only known defense against Avada Kedavra is the Disarming Charm, which can be used to deflect the curse back at the caster.

      In case you select options that don’t let you learn the curse, you will be given another option in the next quest, In the Shadow of Fate. Ominis Gaunt will present you with the choice of turning Sebastian in. Here you need to choose “We must not turn Sebastian in”, after which Sebastian will once again offer to teach you Avada Kedavra.

      In case you do turn Sebastian in, he will be taken away by the Ministry authroities, and you won't be able to learn Avada Kedavra.
