When You're A Wildcat

According to the quiz, My dæmon is a wildcat.

"Your decisions have led you here. Your daemon is the wildcat. You are independent, brave and logical. You have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and are extremely diligent. You weigh up your options without acting impulsively, but you never let this get in the way of a good adventure! You take your responsibilities seriously, acting with great care and tact. You are very protective of those you love and have a great desire to do good in this world."

I can't wait to start watching this BBC/HBO series made from one of my favorite book series ever, His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman. In the stories, everyone has a dæmon which can take many forms of various animal until it settles on being just one animal when you hit puberty. In some sense, a dæmon is like an external manifestation of one's soul. It's one of the most captivating and inventive things I've come across in a lifetime of reading fantasy and science fiction. I really hope that the show is well done, this is such a timely story for the days we currently find ourselves living through.
