Lorcan Scamander is the son of Luna Lovegood and Rolf Scamander, and the twin brother of Lysander Scamander; he is the grandson of Xenophilius Lovegood, and the great-grandson of Porpentina and Newt Scamander.
He and his brother attended the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Lorcan is a Ravenclaw in his first year of Hogwarts in 2016, while his twin brother became a Hufflepuff. Shortly after completing thier first year, rumors of a Crumple-Horned Snorkack sighting prompted a trip to Argentina and eventually had the Scamander twins going to Iracema Universidade de Feitiçaria in Brazil for thier second year. However, the trip was unsuccessful and the Scamanders returned home so they could go back to Hogwarts for Year 3 while Luna waited out her pregnancy of Amaris Lupe Scamander, a werewolf daughter and Lorcan's younger sister. He wears green, coke-bottle glasses.
Lorcan is also fluent in Portugese, Spanish and Latin. He enjoys wood-whittling, photography and poetry.
Lorcan and his family were invited to the birthday party of Amaryllis Longbottom in 2018, but were unable to make it. The last that had been heard of the family, they'd been in the rainforest.
A conversation between James Potter and his mother suggests Lorcan is a part of James' group of pranksters.
Lorcan was sorted into Ravenclaw in 2016, while brother Lysander was sorted into Gryffindor.
An experiment in August 2017 left his hair dyed blue. It was fixed by the next morning to avoid Professor McGonagall (the headmistress)'s wrath.
Lorcan began having visions over the course of the 2017-2018 school year. These included a door, a key, and the stone wall of a cave. He drew each vision and gave the sketch to his friend Rose Weasley, who was able to use them in her adventures, which often included Lorcan. Partway through the year, Lorcan began working with Professor Trelawney on his potential as a Seer. She assigned him a massive amount of summer work, which he completed.
Lorcan and Lysander turned 13 on August 30, 2018, two days before the Hogwarts Express arrived to take them to school. Their birthday cake was made by their mother and in the shape of a scarlet dragon.
Scamander is named after a King of Leinster.
Lorcan means "fierce one" in Gaelic. Lorcan d'Eath is the part-vampire heartthrob singer who enjoyed 19 weeks at #1 for his hit song 'Necks to You;' also featured as Wizard of the Month in November 2006. Lorcan is also a common name for either a werewolf or vampire in fantasy novels and movies.
