She feels very scared in meeting these types of humans that she heard of, but never met one in person. She tries everything to fit in in this world, she transforms Iggus into a parrot, puts normal clothes, tries to hide her magic and even puts herself the human name “Wanda” to try to get a job at a school, where she meets Johnny. Phoenix is very excentric, funny but lovable and even badass at times, she is like a female Newt Scamander.
