Your daemon is a Lyre Bird!

Your daemon is a Lyre Bird!

A rare and unusual creature, your daemon is curious, cheeky, and clever. You have a deep love for stories and adventure, and aren’t afraid to spin a few lines yourself, if it helps get your friends out of trouble.

‘Without stories, we wouldn’t be human beings at all.’

Your daemon is a Red Panda!

Your daemon is a Red Panda!

You are a deeply caring person with a big heart – as your soft, cuddly daemon proves. However, just like the Red Panda, you know how to defend yourself. You always wish you could do more to help others, but sometimes life and other responsibilities get in the way.

‘And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won’t just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me, we’ll be joined so tight.’

Your daemon is a Lynx!

Your daemon is a Lynx!

Your daemon is intimidating at first sight. But just like you, once you get on their good side they make a fierce, loyal friend. You have a strong sense of right and wrong, and will fight injustice wherever you encounter it.

‘Can is not the same as must.’
‘But if you must and you can, then there’s no excuse.’

Your daemon is a Grey Slender Loris!

Your daemon is a Grey Slender Loris!

Just like your daemon, you are mysterious and little understood. However, you are wise beyond your years and incredibly perceptive, reading others’ emotions and motivations with ease.

‘Everything has a meaning, if only we could read it.’

Your daemon is an Alaskan Caribou!

Your daemon is an Alaskan Caribou!

Your daemon is an old soul, and a traveller. Brave and adventurous, you never settle in one place for long, but your loyalties are unwavering. You’d cross oceans to help out a friend in need.

‘We held ‘em off. We held out. We’re a-helping Lyra.’

Your daemon is a Fennec Fox!

Your daemon is a Fennec Fox!

Your daemon might look sweet – but don’t be fooled – there’s a lot of cleverness beneath that cute exterior. People might underestimate you at first, but with your thirst for knowledge and steely ambition, you’re quick to prove them wrong.

‘”I wish…” she said, and stopped. There was nothing that could be gained by wishing for it. A final deep shaky breath, and she was ready to go on.’
