Hogwarts Legacy – Lumos secret feature reveals sad werewolf story
In Hogwarts Legacy, Lumos is primarily used to give you light in dark areas. But did you know that the spell has another use? Reddit member “KomradKomrad” (via Gamerant) is now drawing our attention to this. Because Lumos not only serves as a guide, but also reveals a sad story that a mural tells us.
Werewolf painting with a tragic story
It’s about this painting: In the dungeons of Hogwarts there is a room with a large painting that tells a story about a young woman and a werewolf. The highlight? Shining the Lumos Charm on the work of art changes the imagery of the painting and with it the story it tells. The images below show what it looks like:
The story without Lumos: If you look at the painting without the Lumos spell activated, it tells the story of a young mother who lives in a castle with her child. The woman and her followers are attacked by a werewolf, but successfully chase the creature away.
The story when you illuminate the picture with Lumos: If you look at the picture with the Lumos spell activated, the young woman’s story turns into a tragedy. In this version of the painting, she also has a child. However, she is bitten by the werewolf and then chased away by her followers, as she is now a werewolf herself. She is now a danger to her child and must therefore give it into the hands of others, as the last picture of the mural shows us.
The Youtube video below shows you how to find the room with the werewolf painting:

In general, it’s worth trying Lumos on murals. For example, have you discovered the empty picture frames and don’t know what to do with them? A light will show you the way.
