How to complete The Man Behind The Moons Quest in Hogwarts Legacy

The quest will begin with the school's caretaker, Mr. Moon, reaching out by letter to ask you to meet up with him. You'll meet him outside of The Great Hall near the Grand Staircase. This is where he'll reveal to you a Demiguise statue that is holding onto a Moon. He'll show you how to collect the Moon by waiting until night, which you can also do by opening your map and pressing in the right stick of your controller.

After this explanation, Mr. Moon will ask you to head into the Faculty Tower to retrieve two more statues. However, this area is currently off-limits to students, and you'll need to unlock a gate to get inside. Mr. Moon will teach you Alohomora level one here. You can use it to break into the gate and then sneak your way to the prefect's bathroom and Hospital Wing to retrieve the Moons he wants.

After this, Mr. Moon will ask you to continue to find Demiguise Statues hidden around Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, and even outer regions on the World Map. He promises he will teach you higher levels of Alohomora as you do. The first step of this quest is to collect nine Demiguise Moons, which will allow you to learn Alohomora Ievel two.

How to collect nine Demiguise Moons in Hogwarts Legacy

There are thirty Demiguise Moons total, spread around all areas: Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, and the World Map. However, some Demiguise Moons are locked inside level two areas that you won't be able to reach this time through. We've put together a quick list of Moons you can collect for this portion of the quest. Remember, you'll need to wait till night to collect the Moon, even after you find the statue.

Continue past the corridor with the musical paintings and then down the staircase to your right. Follow the hallway around the corner to the left and walk all the way to the end of the hall till you reach a dead end. To your left will be a locked door leading to a bathroom. Use your Alohomora level one to unlock it, and then head inside. You'll notice the middle stall has an "Out of Order" sign on it. Push into it, and you'll locate a boiler room of sorts with the Demiguise statue on the crate.

This classroom location is not as well-known as the rest, and that's because it is tucked away in the dungeons of the castle. It also happens to be home to another Demiguise statue. To get there, take the Bell Tower Courtyard Floo, and head up the stairs to your left. Continue through the wooden door and then keep to your left as you descend all the stairs and doors until you reach the dungeons. Continue forward and around the corner until you spot the dragon skeleton. From there, turn right and continue down the long corridor, and you'll see a locked door to your left as you do. Use Alohomora level one to unlock the door and head into the classroom. As soon as you enter, take a right and head into the corner to find the Demiguise.

There are still a few more Hogwarts Demiguise Moons, but they will require a higher Alohomora skill. So, for now, you'll want to head into Hogsmeade to get your last two Demiguise for this portion of the quest. The quickest ones you can grab right now are located in and right near The Three Broomsticks:

Now that you have nine Demiguise Moons, head back to Mr. Moon right inside the Faculty Tower. He will teach you Alohomora level two once you give him the Moons. Then he'll send you off to collect thirteen more Moons in order to learn the final upgrade.

Once you have all thirteen of these Demiguise Moons, head back to the same location in the Faculty Tower to find Mr. Moon waiting. Once you give him these Moons, he'll teach you the last upgrade for Alohomora, which means you can now get into any lock you find around Hogwarts and its grounds. He'll ask you to keep a lookout for any more in the hopes that you might figure out who is behind it. You can continue finding them around the World Map if you'd like to, but it isn't necessary unless you are going for the achievement.

How to figure out who is behind the Moons in Hogwarts Legacy

Screenshot by Pro Game Guides

After getting the last upgrade of Alohomora, you won't need to find any more Demiguise, but you still are in the dark about who is behind it. After a little while, you will receive a letter from the culprit named Piers Pemberton. He accidentally addresses himself without meaning to, allowing you to track him down in Hogsmeade. Follow your marker to Hogsmeade and confront him to learn he attended Hogwarts alongside Mr. Moon and was bullied by him, thus leading to him getting revenge with the Demiguise statues.

You can return to Mr. Moon with this information, which he will be surprisingly glad to hear. He will thank you for your help and head off to reunite with his old "friend."
