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.
1947年,由他一手操办的狼人登记处成立。不过,他认为最让他引以为豪的是1965年通过的《有关禁止试验性培育的禁令》。《禁令》有效遏制了英国境内难以驯服的神奇动物新品种的培育问题。斯卡曼先生曾在龙研究及限制局工作,因此多有机会前往海外进行调查研究。这期间,他为这本畅销全球的《神奇动物在哪里》收集了很多材料。现在,《神奇动物在哪里》已经是第五十二版。

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.
纽特·斯卡曼因其在神奇动物研究(即神奇动物学)方面做出的卓越贡献,他于1979年被授予美林爵士团二级魔法师荣誉。斯卡曼先生现已退休,与其妻波彭蒂娜及宠物猫狸子——霍比、米莉和莫勒一同住在英国多塞特郡。
