Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 700x90
"So you're the guy with the case full of monsters, huh?"
—Gnarlak, to Newt Scamander[src]

Gnarlak[1][1] was an American goblin gangster.[2] He ran The Blind Pig, a magical speakeasy located at 124 Macdougal Street[3] in New York in the 1920s, which Newt Scamander visited when he was searching for information.[2][4]

When negotiating payment for his help, Gnarlak stated his interest in Pickett, one of Newt's bowtruckles, as they were reportedly able to pick locks. Newt reluctantly accepted this exchange.[5] However, Gnarlak had already informed MACUSA of Newt's location in an attempt to reap the bounty on his head.

Jacob Kowalski punched Gnarlak in the face, noting that he reminded him of Jacob's foreman. This allowed Newt to retrieve Pickett and to apparate away with Jacob, Tina, and Queenie.

Magical abilities and skills

  • Gnarlak carried two wands, although his skill in wand-based magic is not known.[6]
  • Gnarlak was capable of performing wandless magic.[7]
