I think the answer is

Manticore

Natural face

The manticore has a human-like head

Elegant kings cape

I think this refers to the lion's mane (as the lion is the "King of the Jungle")

Wicked rows of gnashers

The manticore has very sharp teeth.

Terrible tendrils fire like arrows

The manticore has a tail of venomous spines similar to porcupine quills.

Soft croon fades to black

In the world of Harry Potter, the manticore is reputed to croon softly to its victims as it devours them.

Hint

Newton Scamander (Newt S) is the main character from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which features the manticore.
