As you know, I’m currently reading Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass, the first book in the very popular His Dark Materials Trilogy. In December, the movie version is hitting US theatres and looks to be very cool, indeed.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Pullman’s work, a “daemon” is a sort of outer manifestation of a person’s soul which takes on a specific animal form that represents their true inner-self.
Today I went to the film’s official website and took the test to find out what animal best represented my inner being…
This is Brynn, my daemon.
Caw, caw, bitches!
According to the test, Brynn is my daemon because the crow signifies being “modest, humble, assertive, spontaneous, and responsible.”
I guess crows are kind of cool and mysterious, right? I don’t know–I’m not really a bird-lover. I was kind of hoping for maybe like a cougar, lion, or fox. Basically, the sexy animals. Oh well. At least i can be consoled by the fact that black is a very flattering color.
