Theseus Scamander was a British wizard and Auror.[4][5][6] He was the son of Mrs Scamander and the older brother of Newton Scamander.[4][7]


Theseus Scamander was born in the United Kingdom to Mrs Scamander sometime in or prior to early 1897.[1] He had at least one sibling, a younger brother, Newton.[4]

As an adult, he worked as an Auror with the British Ministry of Magic, being described as a "powerful" wizard.[5][6] He participated in the wizarding effort in the First World War, and afterward was considered a "war hero".[4]

In 1926, Theseus corresponded with Gellert Grindelwald, at the time disguised as Percival Graves, the Director of Magical Security of MACUSA, about recent events in New York, through which Grindelwald (as Graves) learned about Newt.[5][6]

Personality and traits

Theseus was frequently described as being very powerful, and was noted to be commanding.[5][6] Given his participation in the war and his description as a hero, he appeared also to be courageous or brave.

Behind the scenes


Notes and references

  1. 1.0 1.1 Newton Scamander is said to be Theseus's younger brother in a scene in the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Newt's year of birth is given as 1897 in the Fantastic Beasts companion book by J. K. Rowling. This places Theseus's earliest possible time of birth in early 1897, presuming Newt was born late in the year, and Mrs. Scamander became pregnant within a month of having Theseus.

  3. Since Rolf Scamander kept Newt's family name, it can be presumed that he is the son of a son of Newt's (if he were the son of a daughter of Newt's, he might more likely bear whichever his father's surname was, and not Scamander).
