Chapter 13: An A-Z of Fantastic Beasts - E

Erkling

  • Erklings kind of look like elves…except they're really mean and like to try to lure in little children who they then eat. That's just bad manners.
  • The last time an Erkling attacked a child, it got the worst end of the deal when the six-year-old boy smashed it over the head with a cauldron and killed the creature. #SorryNotSorry

Erumpent

  • These creatures kind of look like rhinoceroses from a distance. Their skin can repel all kinds of magic and their horns are huge and can pierce through metal.
  • Their horns also have a kind of volatile liquid in them that will make whatever its injected with explode. That's bad news for the Erumpents during mating season. The males tend to charge at each other and then start exploding.
