A cute little thief
The Niffler is a character in the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, set in the Harry Potter universe. He follows the character of Newt Scamander, the English wizard who wrote the guide to the fantastic creatures of the wizarding world. In the early 1920s, Newt travels to New York City to complete the writing of his book. But while he was walking in the city, one of the creatures in his magic suitcase escaped. It is the niffler who, passing in front of a bank, cannot resist the smell of gold. As Newt enters the bank to try to retrieve it, he crosses paths with a nomaj (the American equivalent of a muggle) and in the confusion, they swap cases and more animals escape from Newt’s case.
