History[edit | edit source]
When Lyra Silvertongue met Martin Lanselius, the Consul of the witches, he asked her to use the alethiometer to identify which of the cloud-pine branches which he possessed belonged to Serafina Pekkala.
Behind the Scenes[edit | edit source]
- In the books, cloud-pine was used as a 'steed' that the witches rode on akin to a traditional broomstick. In the film, the witches' cloud-pine made up their bows, and they flew mostly unaided (though still needed to be holding their bows). In the TV series, the cloud-pine appears to be tattooed/dermal implants beneath their very skin - hence, they appear to fly unaided but the pine is part of them. Notably, Mrs Coulter tortures the witch Katja by plucking the twigs/needles out from under her skin.
