Did you know there is a mythological creature which matches the description of a dœmon?
It's called a fylgja.
Each person has their own fylgja, it's an animal that accompanies your soul and adopts the form of an animal depending on your personality.
The only difference is that they're invisible and they're set sinse you're born.
Similarly as in the book you can have your soul carrier sepperated from you if that happens you will grow very ill or go insane.
There is a way to know what animal is your fylgja. You have to take a knife ( can be a butter knife) rap it in a napkin then Pas it from your right hand to your left hand and then behind your back to your right hand again. Repeat this three times while saying: What is my spirit animal: a horse, a dog, a cat?
Or which ever animal you want to say, but you can only say each animal once.
I just finished reading the first book of the Book of Dust trilogy. I loved loved loved how Mr. Pullman was able to converge Lyra's world in a different light but still keep the connections that I saw back to the Northern Lights. Like Malcolm eventually becomes a professor at Jordan and looks after Lyra (although I do not recall him being mentioned). I do remember how Dr, Relf became the head of the St. Sophia women's college and I really loved her character in this installment!
I am beyond excited that His Dark Materials is finally given another chance at becoming a visual adventure. The Golden Compass movies sucked. It does NO justice how amazing the books were. I can compare the failure of the Golden Compass movie to the Percy Jackson movie, doing NOTHING to the books and the Giver movie, which makes me really mad since the books were beyond amazing.
As I have been re-reading La Belle Sauvage, I have noticed some interesting things.
The first is the spangled ring, which Malcolm saw while reading. This was never fully explained and probably links to the secret commonwealth.
Hannah Relf leant Malcolm a book called The Silk Road. This book goes into detail about trade routes in The Levant. When discussing it, Malcolm says that this is the place he would most want to visit. Hannah says that maybe one day he will. Indeed, the setting for The Secret Commonwealth (which Malcolm appears in) is The Levant.
