Quiz Outcomes

  • 1.
    Cat
    Cats are watchful and observant. This represents how you notice what's happening around you. You are wise beyond your years yet elegant, judgmental and serene. "His daemon was a beautiful autumn-colored cat, massive in size, who stalked along the table with upraised tail and elegantly inspected Pantalaimon..." Pg. 118
  • 2.
    Leopard
    Leopard's are quick, clever and aggressive. This shows that you know what you want and you go out and get it. You always know whats what and you are ready to pounce at any moment. "And his daemon growled with a deep savage rumble, which made Lyra suddenly aware of what it would be like to have teeth meeting in her throat." (pg. 28)
  • 3.
    Bird
    Having a bird as a daemon in The Golden Compass usually signifies that you are a witch. But for you this means you are a trickster, not too much of a rule follower, someone who as a lot of fun but doesn't think of consequences. You may also be just a little bit evil. "The goose made his stately way to the stern of the ship, where he looked around, elegant and wild simultaneously, and a cause of fascinated terror to Lyra, who felt as though she was entertaining a ghost." Pg. 185
  • 4.
    Dog
    Dog daemons in The Golden Compass are usually daemons to servants. In your situation, this means that you follow the rules, submit to authority, and seek praise or validation. You are also a hard worker. "The Butler bowed slightly and turned to leave, his daemon trotting obediently behind him." (pg. 5)
  • 5.
    Ferret
    People with ferret daemons are kind, compassionate and silly. They are loved by others and sensitive at heart. "Jacob's [ferret] daemon gave a little mew of anxiety and love..." Pg. 146
