Hogwarts Legacy Tell Claire Beaumont the Truth or Lie About Her Brother

Although based on the Harry Potter series, which are children’s books, Hogwarts Legacy is a rather dark game. There’s quite a lot of death and tragedy here. Moreover, many of those deaths will be caused by you. This includes Bardolph Beaumont, Claire’s brother. You will not kill him directly, but he will turn into Inferious, and you’ll eliminate his undead version. And then, the most challenging part comes, should you tell Claire about her brother’s death or lie to her? Here are the two options presented in the dialogue with Claire:

  • I’m afraid he’s dead.
  • He’s decided to pursue a new life.

Thus, which one should you pick, what are the differences, and what are the consequences? Unfortunately, as with most dialogue choices in Hogwarts Legacy, there’s no difference. Hence, the result is the same here as well. If you tell the truth about Claire’s brother, you will explain that Bardolph has turned into Inferious, and that you recognized him by his woollen jumper, which she had knitted for him. She will be sad and cry, but at least she will know the truth.

If you lie to Claire about her brother and tell her that Bardolph decided to pursue a new life and has joined the Ashwinders, she will also be sad and start crying. Hence, there’s no reason to lie to her. You will receive a Wand handle and a handful of XP in both outcomes. With that said, our “Tell Claire Beaumont Truth or Lie in Brother’s Keeper” is completed.

Nikola's been playing video games since his father bought him the NES and the Sega Mega Drive in the early '90s. Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
