"I know what that woman did to you... I know that you've suffered... you need to stop this now... Newt and I will protect you."
— Tina's sympathy towards Credence Barebone[src]

Porpentina Esther[1] "Tina" Scamander (née Goldstein)[12] (b. 19 August 1901)[1] was an American half-blood witch. She attended Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where she was sorted into Thunderbird house. After graduating from Ilvermorny, she became an Auror for the Magical Congress of the United States of America.[13]

Tina was dismissed from her position as an Auror for magically assaulting the No-Maj Mary Lou Barebone. She had assaulted Mary Lou (in front of witnesses) as a response to her beating her adopted son, Credence Barebone. Goldstein was investigating the New Salem Philanthropic Society, against the orders of her superiors. She was reinstated in 1926 after helping to arrest Gellert Grindelwald. By 1932, Tina was Head of the American Auror Office at MACUSA.[10]

Tina later became the wife of famed Magizoologist and author Newt Scamander.[14] Sometime after retiring from the Department of Aurors, she moved to the United Kingdom with her husband. The couple had at least one child, through whom they had a grandson, Rolf Scamander, who married Luna Lovegood, and through whom Tina and Newt had two known great-grandsons, Lorcan and Lysander.[6]

Porpentina Esther Goldstein was born on 19 August 1901.[1][13] She had at least one sibling, a younger sister named Queenie[15] and was a half-blood witch.[1] The sisters lost their mother and father at a very young age due to Dragon Pox.[16] Afterwards, they "raised each other" and consequently maintained a very strong bond into adulthood.[5][17] Despite her sister being younger, she acted as being the older sister, reminding Tina how to eat right and giving her consistent reminders of the dangers of the Second Salemers.[18]

Porpentina's friends and family called her by the nickname "Tina",[2] although Queenie occasionally used the affectionate variation of the nickname, "Teenie", as a means to refer to her.

Ilvermorny years

During her youth, Tina attended Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,[19] where she was sorted into Thunderbird house.[11] During her time at school, she was best friends with Eulalie Hicks.[20]

Tina: "His name's Credence. His mother beats him. She beats all those kids she's adopted, but she seems to hate him the most."
Newt Scamander: "And she was the No-Maj you attacked?"
Tina: "That's how I lost my job. I went for her in front of a meeting of her crazy followers. They all had to be Obliviated. It was a big scandal."

Tina comforts Credence Barebone after attacking Mary Lou

Tina worked for the Magical Congress of the United States of America.[21] Originally, she was an Auror;[21] however, she stood up for Credence Barebone by using magic to assault his adoptive mother Mary Lou Barebone, the leader of the New Salem Philanthropic Society, for mistreating Credence.

As a result, No-Majs that witnessed the event needed to be Obliviated, and Tina was demoted to the position of Federal Wand Permit Officer.[22] This job was well below her abilities and personal ambitions.[21] Her sister Queenie at the time also had a menial desk job in the wand permit office.[23]

Global wizarding war

Meeting Newt Scamander

"Mr Scamander, do you know anything about the wizarding community in America? We don't let things loose."
— Tina regarding the opening of Newt's case[src]

In 1926,[9] Tina was living in a brownstone with her sister at 679 West 24th Street in New York.[1][5][24] On 6 December 1926, Tina left from work and observed Mary Lou preaching in an anti-witchcraft rally at the steps of Steen National Bank. She noticed a billywig flying above them before she met British magizoologist Newt Scamander, who was running through the crowd in search of a Niffler that had escaped his suitcase. Tina thought he seemed strange and decided to follow him.[13]

Seeing Newt reveal his wand and Apparate with No-Maj Jacob Kowalski, she apprehended Newt. She asked him why he caused a disruption inside the bank and whether he Obliviated Jacob. He revealed that he had not, and Tina discovered that he knew very little about how things worked in America's wizarding community. Tina took him in to MACUSA headquarters on a Section 3A: failing to Obliviate a No-Maj.[25]

FB-Wand Permit Office

Tina with Newt in the wand permit office

Once they arrived at the headquarters, Tina interrupted a meeting being held by President Seraphina Picquery, who interrupted her attempts to explain herself and then sent her away. Returning to her office, she and Newt were eventually joined by the Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, Percival Graves, who wanted to know about Newt's suitcase. However, when she opened it, she found it contained pastries belonging to Jacob. She and Newt then realised that he and Jacob had accidentally taken each other's cases instead of their own. The two left to retrieve Newt's suitcase from the No-Maj.

Tine and Queenie Goldstein

Arriving at Jacob's apartment, they found it in partial ruin, which Newt quickly repaired. They found Jacob unwell, having been bitten by a murtlap, and discovered creatures had escaped. Tina offered them a place to stay at her home, believing it best to keep the No-Maj with them until he recovered. She introduced them to her sister, and they shared a meal together. She later showed them to their room and left them alone. However, when she checked up on them later that evening, she found both men and the suitcase missing.

Evading MACUSA

"You tipped them off?!"
— Tina to Gnarlak[src]
Jacob Tina Newt MACUSA

Tina, Newt and Jacob being arrested

She tracked them down to an ice rink under a bridge in Central Park. When they climbed into the suitcase, Tina locked it and took it to MACUSA where she interrupted a delegation of the International Confederation of Wizards to inform them about the creatures and the wizard who smuggled them into the country. Newt was immediately blamed for allowing one of his creatures to murder Senator Henry Shaw Jnr.

However, upon observing the scars and markings on Shaw's body projection, Newt stated that only an Obscurus could have left the distinct markings upon his body, which caused unrest in the room, during which President Picquery denied the existence of any Obscurus in America. Tina, Newt and Jacob were soon taken under arrest and Newt's case was impounded. In the jail cell, Tina and Newt explained the meaning of an Obscurus to Jacob and how no record existed at the time of an Obscurial having existed past the age of ten.

Fantastic-beasts-tina death cell

Later, Deputy Officer Graves discovered the harmless Obscurus that Newt had contained in his suitcase and, during an interrogation, accused Newt of conspiring with Gellert Grindelwald. Against Newt's protests, he sentenced both Tina and Newt to death. In the Death Cell Tina had her memories extracted and was strapped into a chair. While she was hovering above the death potion, she witnessed a memory of herself attacking Mary Lou Barebone and comforting Credence.

She also witnessed memories of her parents and childhood. During this time, Newt was able to free himself from his restraints with the help of his bowtruckle, Pickett. Newt then used a Swooping Evil to rescue Tina. They tried to flee MACUSA but were pursued by several Aurors. They bumped into Queenie and Jacob, who managed to get Newt's suitcase; they climbed into it, and Queenie walked out of MACUSA headquarters with it, allowing them to escape undetected.

Newt and Tina at Blind Pig

The group made a plan to retrieve the last two escaped creatures. However, since one was invisible, they needed help locating it. Tina took everyone to the Blind Pig to meet Gnarlak, who agreed to give them the information they desired for a price: Gnarlak wanted Newt's bowtruckle Pickett to use for picking locks. Newt reluctantly agreed to the exchange, and they received the information they were looking for. However, Gnarlak betrayed them to MACUSA. The group Apparated away in time to escape the Aurors, retrieving Pickett in the process.

Heading to a Macy's department store, they discovered Newt's Demiguise stealing things for an overlooked Occamy. After some initial difficulties, Tina helped entrap the Occamy in a teapot, bringing an end to the search for escaped creatures.

Duel in New York

Tina attempting to duel a disguised Grindelwald

They then head to the rooftop of a building where they stumbled across Credence in Obscurus form fleeing from Aurors. Newt decided to try to save him, and Tina followed him. She met Percival Graves again, and they duelled. Tina held her own until Graves wandlessly and non-verbally threw a car at her, telling her that she always showed up at the worst time.

Tina then managed to make her way to the subway station, where Credence was. She attempted to calm him down and was nearly successful; however, the arrival of President Picquery and the MACUSA Aurors agitated him, and he was seemingly destroyed by the Aurors' attacks. This angered Graves, whom advanced on the President. He then proceeded to dispatch Aurors with unparalleled skill and speed. Fortunately for the group, Newt managed to distract him with his Swooping Evil and bind him with a spell, while Tina used a Summoning Charm to relieve him of his wand.

Newt used the Revelio Charm to unmask "Graves" as Gellert Grindelwald in disguise. Grindelwald was apprehended. Afterwards, Tina witnessed the Thunderbird Frank Obliviate every No-Maj in New York. Since Jacob was a No-Maj, he needed to be Obliviated as well. Tina, along with Queenie and Newt, said goodbye to him before he lost all of his memories of their time together. Tina was also restored to the position of Auror, after Newt told Mrs Picquery some warm words about her.


Newt and Tina saying a temporary goodbye

One week later she bid farewell to Newt as he boarded a ship home to Great Britain. They shared a tender moment were Newt put a piece of her hair behind her ear. He did this before he had to leave her, and Newt promised to meet her again to deliver his book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to her in person.

Correspondence with Newt

Tina and Newt had corresponded by letter after their meeting in New York, but a series of missteps on Newt's part, namely his characterisation of Aurors as "career-driven hypocrites", had soured the relationship. Tina eventually read in Spellbound a wrong account of the upcoming marriage between Theseus Scamander and Leta Lestrange, becoming convinced that Newt had patched up his relationship with Leta and was ready to marry her. The belief that Newt had rekindled his relationship with Leta was too much, and Tina broke off contact with Newt, and started seeing a fellow Auror named Achilles Tolliver.

Search for Credence Barebone

Tina talking with Skender

Sometime in 1927, Gellert Grindelwald has escaped during his transfer to Europe. Tina learned that Credence survived the battle in New York and has been sighted also in Europe, lately in Paris. While looking for the Obscurial in Paris, she talked with Skender, the Circus Arcanus owner. During the show of Nagini, the Maledictus, Credence released several beasts to allow himself and Nagini time to escape. Tina tried to chase him but unsuccessfully.

Tina talking with Yusuf

Tina talking with Yusuf

After that Tina met Yusuf Kama, a wizard and another interested in Barebone. After a short exchange of sentences in the cafe, Tina learned from Yusuf that he is somehow related to Credence, because his mother was also a mother of Leta Lestrange, which father in turn was a father of Corvus Lestrange, supposed to be Credence, as pure-blood's rumours said. To prove it he took Tina to his hideout in the sewers, and imprisoned her there.[26]

Tina in sewers

Tina incarcerated in Yusuf's hideout

Shortly after, Newt and Jacob arrived to France to patch up their relationships with Tina and Queenie. They tracked Kama, which took them to the place, where he incarcerated Tina. He did the same with both men, after disarming Scamander. Then Yusuf revealed that he would let them all out when he will kill Credence. Unexpectedly, Yusuf passed out, so Newt used the situation and freed himself, Tina and Jacob with the help of Pickett, who picked the lock in the gate. Approaching the unconscious man, the three heard a roar coming from above.

After pulling Kama out from the sewer they headed to the Alexander III Bridge, where Newt found the Zouwu and put it back into his suitcase. He then seized Tina, Jacob and Yusuf and apparated with them to Rue de Montmorency, where they went to Nicolas Flamel's house, the "safe house" address which Albus Dumbledore had given to Newt. Newt removed with tweezers a water dragon parasite from Yusuf's eye which had been weakening him. Both Tina and Newt deduced that traces on Kama's hands showed that he made an Unbreakable Vow.

Infiltration of the French Ministry of Magic

After a brief and rushed "goodbye", Tina left to find Credence, but she was pursued by Newt. Tina remained unimpressed by his apologies, until she and Newt saw that Grindelwald was calling a rally for his followers. Then Newt came up with an idea to infiltrate the French Ministry of Magic for family box to confirm Credence's identity. However they are quickly discovered by Theseus, but managed to escape when Tina blasted him into a wall and tied him up.

Newt and Tina in the Records Room

Tina and Newt in the Records Room

Introducing themselves to Melusine, the Ministry of Magic employee, as Theseus and Leta, Newt and Tina entered the Ministry's Records Room. Newt was finally able to explain to Tina that he was not engaged to Leta and repaired their relationship, before they were discovered by Leta searching for the box too. They discovered that the family box had been moved to the Lestrange Mausoleum in the Père Lachaise Cemetery. Melusine detected Newt's and Tina's lie and sent Matagots after them and Leta. Newt sent both women into the suitcase and with the help of the Zouwu, that he had saved earlier, he fled to the cemetery.

When Tina and Leta came out from suitcase and Newt packed the Zouwu inside, they all made their way to the Lestrange tomb where they crossed paths with Jacob, Yusuf, Credence and Nagini. Leta stopped Yusuf, her half-brother, from killing Credence, who thought he was her other half-brother, Corvus Lestrange. Leta found out the family box and revealed that she unintentionally killed her infant brother and thus Credence cannot be Corvus.

Grindelwald's Paris rally

Tina at Grindelwald's rally

Tina during Grindelwald's speech

The trail was revealed to have been fabricated by Grindelwald, who was holding a meeting there with his followers. Reluctant, the group made their way into the meeting. At the rally, Grindelwald preached "freedom" from the rules forcing wizards to remain hidden from Muggles, and used future images of World War II to sway them. Although Theseus and other Aurors surrounded the rally, Grindelwald sent his followers forth to spread the message — and made a circle of black flame to separate friends from enemies. Many were killed, and Tina could only watch as her sister walked into the circle.[27]

When Grindelwald attacked Newt and Theseus, Leta stopped him and attacked him to allow Newt, Tina, Jacob, Yusuf, Nagini, and Theseus to escape, seemingly sacrificing herself. As Grindelwald escaped, the remaining heroes united alongside the immortal alchemist Nicholas Flamel to defeat Grindelwald's black fire and to save Paris.[27]

Having survived the rally, Tina, along with Newt, Theseus, Jacob, Yusuf, and Nagini, picked up Torquil Travers and Rudolph Spielman and travelled to Hogwarts, where Newt brought to Dumbledore Grindelwald's pendant.[27]

In 1932, she had been promoted to Head of the American Auror Office. Due to her work, she was very busy and she was unavailable to join Dumbledore's first army when they intervened in Grindelwald's effort to win the position of Supreme Mugwump of the International Confederation of Wizards. She watched the walk of the Qilin in an office at MACUSA.

Jacob and Queenie's wedding

Newt and Tina speak in New York

Tina was made Maid of Honour at her sister's wedding. Once she walked from her apartment to the bakery Newt was already there, standing outside practising the speech he had to give, and they reunited after a while of not seeing each other. Newt complimented her on her hair and was surprised that he noticed as she did it for the wedding, and then Lally and Theseus arrived and Lally took Tina into the bakery asking her to tell her about the new things that happened in MACUSA.[10] She subsequently bore witness to her sister's marriage to Jacob.

Later life

Tina eventually married Newt and moved to the United Kingdom.[14] The couple had at least one child, who in turn gave them a grandson, Rolf.[28]

As of the late 20th century,[29] she lived with her husband in Dorset with their pet Kneazles: Hoppy, Milly, and Mauler.[14] Following her grandson's marriage to Luna Lovegood, Tina became the great-grandmother of twin boys, Lorcan and Lysander.[6]

Tina was still alive and living in Dorset with her husband in 2017 at the age of 116.[30]

Physical description

Tina Goldstein was a beautiful, slender woman with brown eyes and hair.[1] She usually wore a dark blue jacket over a plain white shirt with long sleeves. Jacob and Newt have both acknowledged her beauty, with the latter citing that "she has the eyes of a salamander", which was a compliment coming from the Magizoologist, despite Jacob acknowledging it as a rather awkward and strange comparison.[citation needed]

Personality and traits

Tina had a practical, level-headed personality. She was described as being "grounded."[31] However, in true Thunderbird fashion, Tina was also described as being "very soulful" and possessed "a lot of heart, strengths, and courage."[17] She was naturally ambitious, and had a desire to stand up for what was right[8], which was evident in Tina attacking the Second Salemers leader Mary Lou Barebone after the latter brutally punished her adopted son Credence, with Tina later consoling the young man. That incident got Tina a temporary demotion from Auror to Federal Wand Permit Officer, but she would still keep an eye on the Second Salemers, due to her desire for justice. Another example of her sense of justice was when she turned in Newt and Jacob for unleashing the animals in the former's suitcase, considering it the right thing to do. However, Tina valued her own life, crying softly when faced with execution and fighting the culprit, Gellert Grindelwald/Percival Graves, with a clear look of apprehension on her face.

Tina was also very persistent, demonstrated during the Obscurial attack on New York and again during her search for Credence, whom she was determined to protect. Her sister Queenie playfully labelled her as a "career girl". She was also shown to be vastly empathetic, as shown by her interactions with Queenie, Newt, Jacob, and Credence. However, she also had a tendency to become bossy and unnecessarily forceful when things go out of her control.

Initially, Tina was a valiant and ambitious Auror, but following her demotion, she became discontented and lost some of her nerve. However, her strong will allowed her to not only push through this but also persist with the job she was given, but also to oppose the Second Salemer No-Majes. Tina initially had a rather neutral opinion about Newt Scamander, considering him a threat to the Statute of Secrecy. However, due to his handsome appearance, tender heart, and endearing personality, and most of all his recognised innocence and the utter sense of right and wrong they shared, she began developing tender feelings for him, which he certainly reciprocated.

For Tina, their exploits together have been a journey of renewal. Her experiences before and during the Obscurial attack on New York have given her more serenity and allowed her to come to terms with her hardships and attempted to find peace and calm within herself. Having grown bolder and happier, she set her sights on finding and redeeming Credence Barebone, hoping to save him from both the Alliance and himself. Unlike her sister Queenie, Tina demonstrated an incorruptible moral code when pushed to the forefront, as she resisted Gellert Grindelwald's persuasive speech, and joined the war efforts to oppose the Dark Lord.

Tina with Newt in New York

Newt, to say the least, was the love of Tina's life. The two initially got off to a rough start after Tina followed him around while he caused trouble in a bank, and she kept having to demand he take action since he clearly did not want to. Eventually, she turned him in to MACUSA for the threat he was unintentionally posing to New York.

However, after he saved her life they began to bond while they were on the run from MACUSA as "Percival Graves" wanted to use her as a scapegoat. They also teamed up when Credence attacked the city. They temporarily parted in good spirits after the fight, with Tina promising to buy his book. Newt said she had "eyes just like a salamander". She found this to be very flattering and made her smile that he thought that of her. The two worked together once again when Grindelwald was summoning his followers. Later in her life, she married Newt, with the two happily living together in Dorset, England.

Gellert Grindelwald

Gellert Grindelwald SODM 2

Gellert Grindelwald, an enemy

Tina had interacted with Grindelwald while he was disguised as Percival Graves. Her prim personality put them at odds. During Newt's interrogation, Grindelwald sentenced her and Newt to death, for her participation, without hesitation. Tina attempted to incapacitate him during the hunt for Credence in New York, infuriating him, as he angrily told her she always turned up when he least wanted her, implying she may have intervened with his attempts to find the Obscurus previously. She lost to him when he attempted to crack her skull by throwing a car at her without hesitation, but she survived.

A year later, while convincing Queenie to join his ranks, Grindelwald painted Tina in a negative light by telling Queenie that it wasn't the latter's fault for having an Auror as a sister. He then ruthlessly tried to burn her alive with his dark flames and would have succeeded had Leta not interfered.

Credence Barebone

Credence Barebone SODM

Credence Barebone

Tina first encountered Credence when he was being physically abused by his mother. Outraged, she rescued him and consoled him afterwards. As a result, Tina lost her job and Credence began having dreams about her. She was surprised when he was revealed to be the Obscurus that had been running rampant across New York on a few occasions and had now revealed himself openly. True to her immense compassion, however, she attempted to "save" him rather than share everyone else's objective to destroy him.

In her attempts, she battled Grindelwald (Graves) and tried to soothe his intense energy, with Newt noting she was the only person capable of coming anywhere close to reasoning with the Obscurial. She cried out when he was destroyed. When Credence was revealed to be very much alive, she determinedly sought him out, fearing for the child's well-being, though sadly the enemy found him first.


Porpentina is derived from the archaic word "Porpentine". Porpentine is a form of the term "porcupine", used by William Shakespeare in the play Hamlet.[32]

Tina originates from the Old English "Tyne" meaning river.

Esther may come from the eponymous heroine of the Book of Esther, a Jewish queen whose story of thwarting the genocide of her people is the basis of the celebration of Purim in Jewish tradition. The name has several proposed origins, including the Median word astra,meaning "myrtle" (which would match Esther's Hebrew name, Hadassah, which shares this meaning); the Persian word setareh, meaning "star" (as Esther was said to be "as beautiful as the Morning Star", aka the planet Venus, named after the Roman goddess of love); or a derivation of Ishtar, an ancient Mesopotamian goddess associated with love, beauty, sex, desire, fertility, war, justice, and political power. The name's root letters in Hebrew mean "hide" or "conceal", with their passive form meaning "to be hidden".

Goldstein is an occupational German name and an Ashkenazi Jewish surname, meaning "gold" with Stein being translated to "stone".

Behind the scenes


Tina Goldstein as a POP! Vinyl

  • Tina is portrayed by Katherine Waterston in the Fantastic Beasts film series.[33]
  • Katherine Waterston was around ten years older than her role when she played Porpentina in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
  • Tina was the first known student of Ilvermorny introduced in the franchise, though the fact that she attended the school was not revealed until a few months before the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film was released.
  • Porpentina was only addressed by her surname and by her nicknames Tina and Teenie in the first film of the Fantastic Beasts series; her full name could only be read on her MACUSA Identity Card, which in turn confirmed her identity as Newt Scamander's future wife.
