Sebastian has arguably one of the best series of quests in Hogwarts Legacy. While most of them are side missions, some of them are actually included in the main quests and players can’t proceed further in the story without exploring their relationship with Sebastian.

In the Shadow of Time side quest in Hogwarts Legacy, Sebastian will mention a lost Relic inside a Catacomb and maybe that item can save his sister, Anne. The Relic is suspected to grant its holder the power to reverse Dark Magic, which may be the cause of Anne’s sickness.

The quests mostly revolve around Sebastian, Ominis, and Sebastian’s twin sister, Anne. In the Shadow of Time will present you with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn the Imperius Curse. Sebastian himself will offer to teach it to players if they help him complete the puzzles inside the catacomb and retrieve the dark artifact.

The first real puzzle starts after a couple of rooms, where players must open a door covered with skeletons to proceed deeper into the Catacomb. To open it, the protagonist needs to find three skeletons hidden across the chamber and feed them to the skeleton gate. The skeletons can be relocated using Accio or Wingardium Leviosa.

After learning Wingardium Leviosa, casting Accio at objects and relocating their position will auto-cast Wingardium Leviosa, allowing players to move the object freely.
