- "There are strange things going on all over the city. The people behind it are not like you and me."
- —Langdon Shaw[src]
While his older brother, the senator Henry Shaw Junior, was Shaw Snr's pride and joy, Langdon was viewed as something of a failure and disappointment. This did not stop him from constantly trying to seek his father's approval.
In 1926, Langdon told his father of his belief that "strange things [were] going on all over" New York and that the people behind these incidents were "not like [them]," certain that he was giving him the scoop of the century. His father and brother both dismissed his claims out of hand.
Behind the scenes
- Langdon Shaw is portrayed by Ronan Raftery in the film adaptation of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
- Initial reports gave this character's name as "Laurence". His correct name was later released through Pottermore.
