A counterpart to humans—a visible version of the soul that takes on an animal form. While at a young age the Daemon can transform into various forms, until puberty where the Daemon settles into a permanent form that depicts a humans very nature.
I’ve been on a His Dark Materials kick lately, can you tell? Lyra, Pantalaimon, an alethiometer, and some Northern Lights.
”There are many universes and many earths, parallel to each other. World’s like yours were people’s souls live inside their bodies and world’s like mine where they walk beside us as animal spirits, we call daemons. So many world’s but connecting them all is dust, dust was here before the witches of the air, the gyptians of the water, and the bears of the ice. In my world scholars invented an elithiometer, a golden compass and it showed them all that was hidden. But the ruling power fearing any truth but their own decided to destroy these devises and forbade the very mention of dust. One compass remains however and only one who can read it.”
It makes me so happy to find out that someone I follow likes His Dark Materials, it feels like our dæmons are acknowledging each other omg
I wonder what effect being trans would have upon a person’s daemon?
In my opinion, I don’t think it would have any ‘effect’ per se. For example, if someone were assigned female at birth but identifies as male, there daemon would be female, since daemons are…
Cross my heart and hope to die,
I’ll see you with your laughter lines.
