Jacob's sibling is the most popular character when it comes to shipping in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, as Jacob's sibling is often used as a sort of self-insert and a lot of people want them to date a certain character. As Jacob's sibling is customized by the player, different ships for them are generally not considered rival ships, but rather players' differing opinions of which character they'd most like to date.

When referring to this character in general rather than their own personal version of it, fans generally use the terms MC (short for main character) or player character. On the Harry Potter Wiki, this character's page is called Jacob's sibling due to their only known named family member being Jacob, and this term has since spread.
