Chapter 3 – All about Bowtruckles



Hello everyone, welcome to our Walkthrough for Chapter Three of Year Four of Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery. Last time, you and your friends gathered at the library to discuss the possible ways of entering the Forbidden Forest.

Later on, Rowan presented you with a theory that Madam Rakepick is the mysterious ‘R’. After talking for a while, you decided to ask some of the Hogwarts staff about her past and see if there is anything that could prove that the theory is correct.

During the investigation, you learned a great many things, but you found nothing that could tie her directly to that mysterious person. However, this investigation didn’t go unnoticed. Madam Rakepick wanted you to meet her in the Artefact Room. After talking for a while, she advised you to ask Professor Kettleburn about entering the Forbidden Forest.
