Newton (“Newt”) Artemis Fido Scamander was born in 1897. His interest in fabulous beasts was encouraged by his mother, who was an enthusiastic breeder of fancy Hippogriffs. Upon graduation from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Mr. Scamander joined the Ministry of Magic in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures. After two years at the Office for House-Elf Relocation, years he describes as “tedious in the extreme,” he was transferred to the Beast Division, where his prodigious knowledge of bizarre magical animals ensured his rapid promotion.
牛顿(纽特)· 阿特米斯·斐多·斯卡曼生于1897年。他对神奇动物的兴趣是受其母亲启蒙。其母曾经对骏鹰的饲养充满热情。斯卡曼从霍格沃茨魔法学校毕业后进入魔法部,供职于神奇生物管理控制司。他先是在家养小精灵安迁办公室工作了两年,按他自己的说法,这两年是“枯燥至极”;然后他被调任往兽所。因为斯卡曼对各种神奇动物知之甚多,所以他在兽所迅速得到提拔。

Although almost solely responsible for the creation of the Werewolf Register in 1947, he says he is proudest of the Ban on Experimental Breeding, passed in 1965, which effectively prevented the creation of new and untameable monsters within Britain. Mr. Scamander’s work with the Dragon Research and Restraint Bureau led to many research trips abroad, during which he collected information for his worldwide best-seller Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, now in its fifty-second edition.

Newt Scamander was awarded the Order of Merlin, Second Class, in 1979 in recognition of his services to the study of magical beasts, Magizoology. Now retired, he lives in Dorset with his wife Porpentina and their pet Kneazles: Hoppy, Milly, and Mauler.
