In warming for the release of Hogwarts Legacy, MGG azil has prepared some texts to talk about information from the new game.
The article is about Phineas Nigel Black (known as Fines in the translated version of Harry Potter), he will be the director of Hogwarts in the game that takes place in 1890!

Phineas Nigel Black confirmed as director of Hogwarts

The scenario takes place exactly 101 years before Harry Potter’s adventures.
Thus, it was expected that our dear target Dumbledore, or even Armando Dipped, were not the directors at this time.
In fact, Potter heads already knew that Black Phineas would be the director in 1890 or at least imagined him because he matched the dates of former directors.
The trailer on January 11, 2023, eventually confirmed that Fines would be the school commander.

Information by Fines Nigel Black

  • Born in 1847 (he is therefore 43 years old when he is director of Hogwarts in the game);
  • Died in 1925;
  • Pure blood;
  • Slytherin.

An obscure version of Sirius Black’s ancestor?

You certainly recognized Fines’s surname.
He is the Tataravae of Sirius Black III, Beatriz Estrange (Black Born) and Narcissa Malfoy (born Black), for example.
But as we know, Sirius is an exception to the rule between Blacks.
Therefore, Fines is exactly unlike the friendly and generous Sirius, which we see in volume 3 of Harry Potter.
In Hogwarts Legacy, Nigel Black is portrayed as selfish and very egocentric.
He even appeared in books and files, as in The Deathly Hallows, where his portrait has a key participation in one part.


In short, Phineas is an antipathy being who, it seems, will slow down the player’s progress in Hogwarts Legacy.


  • He is the last director of Hogwarts to be from Casey Slytherin (if you do not count Shape);
  • Don’t be like Phineas seems to be the morale of Hogwarts Legacy;
  • The iconic phrase of Kingsley Shackle bolt in the movie, when he says Dumbledore has style, is actually spoken by Fines’s portrait in the books;
  • According to Virus Black, Phineas was the least popular director of Hogwarts of all time;
  • Lost one of the very young others (Sirius I), which may explain his current behavior;
  • Actor Simon Egg is the personifies Fines in the game, lending his traits (movement capture) and voice.
    EGG is particularly known as a recurring role in Mission Impossible and Star Trek.
