Fastest to get or earliest level in the game? – Pubby Nov 12 '11 at 2:04
@Pubby8 Wouldn't the earliest to get also be the fastest to get? – CyberSkull Nov 12 '11 at 2:43
@CyberSkull — A character in the first level which requires a character from the last level to unlock is earlier, but slower, than a character from the middle of the game. There were a few such cases in HP1. – Ben Blank Nov 14 '11 at 2:26
@BenBlank Oh, by level number. No, I mean by the very first possible unlocks for each power. – CyberSkull Nov 14 '11 at 3:22

  • Strength - Dudley: Year 1 level 1. Alternatively, use the super-strength red brick found in Hogwarts.
  • Dark Magic - Bellatrix (Azkaban): Year 7 part 2, while exploring Hogwarts between missions she in the air over the field near Hagrid's house. Use the pink platform with Hermione to get the pumpkincopter, then use it to fly around and get Bellatrix.
  • Key - Mrs. Cole: Year 7 part 2. Use dark magic in the diner kitchen to unlock her.

You can also get Grindenwald young and old up the astronomy tower, year 7 part 2 as soon as you can walk free in Hogwarts, you need Hermione's pink platform. Also they're super cheap to buy I think like 200k each?

Year 7 Part 2 is hardly "early". – StrixVaria Oct 23 '12 at 11:29
What does Grindenwald do again? – CyberSkull Oct 25 '12 at 16:34
