The 8 Harry Potter creatures in your lab

A tongue-in-cheek take on the different types of Harry Potter creatures in your lab.

The unicorn

An equine creature with a single horn on its forehead. Revered by Muggles (non-scientists) and wizards (scientists) alike, they are the purest, most ethereal beings. When found in the lab setting, they get Nature papers. Their experiments always work. The supervisor loves them. How do they do it? You don’t know, but somehow it’s just not fair. Damn it.

The moaning Myrtle

The lab ghost who haunts the toilet (lank hair, pimples, and thick glasses optional). Seldom smiles, takes offence at the least excuse, cries rivers and wails.

The Mandrake

According to the legend, when the root is dug up, it screams and kills all who hear it.  Chittery chattery…all day long! This one literally never ever stops talking. Ever. Another species is the noisy labmate.  Humming, drumming with pipettes, playing Youtube videos at obnoxious volumes. Whilst these creatures in the lab won’t kill you, they sure are annoying AF.

Nagini

Nagini, the slithering, scaly snek that does Voldemort’s bidding.

The niffler

This small, mole-like creature (platypus-esque snout optional) is obsessed with hoarding precious reagents/ equipment.

The house elf

House-elves belong to wealthy labs. They are bound to the lab, doing menial tasks until they die, or get thrown a sock/ graduate/ get another job.

The goblin

Goblins are highly intelligent creatures, who remain a neutral force. In the lab, they diligently work on their projects, not partisan to any of the lab politics.

The dementor

A dark creature that consumes human happiness, creating an ambience of coldness, darkness, misery and despair… In a nutshell, my PhD lol!
