Gnarlak is a minor antagonist in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. He is a goblin who owns a bar called The Blind Pig, which operates several illegal activities.
He was portrayed by Ron Perlman.
Gnarlak was a goblin who owned a bar called The Blind Pig, which was involved in criminal racketeering and frequented by many criminals and other shady characters. Gnarlak himself owned two wands, which under wand-possession laws around non-wizards in America hinted at some kind of criminal behaviour.
While looking for monsters that had escaped from Newt Scamander's briefcase, Scamander, along with Porpentina and Queenie Goldstein and Jacob Kowalski, went to the Blind Pig to get information from Gnarlak. Gnarlak refused to help them until he saw Scamander's Bowtruckle, named Pickett. He said if he gave them information, he wanted them to give him Pickett because Bowtruckles where good at picking locks. They agreed, but Gnarlak had already called the magic police force on them to claim the reward put out on them by Percival Graves, and they began arresting everyone in sight. Gnarlak began to laugh in victory, only for Kowalski to punch him unconscious and grab Pickett back from him before escaping. It is unknown what happened next, but presumably Gnarlak was arrested for his illegal activities.
