Daemon Seed

Meet your His Dark Materials animal pal online

Did you read the His Dark Materials trilogy and feel a bit jealous that Lyra and co had an animal buddy to chat with all the time? Well, New Line Cinema’s official Golden Compass site is now offering you the chance to meet your daemon (for the uninitiated, that’s a walking, talking representation of your soul).

All you have to do is answer 20 questions about your personality (nothing too probing), and the site will introduce you to your own daemon. Mine’s a wolf called Aurora, apparently. Not sure what it means, to be honest - if, indeed, it means anything at all - but you can find out what yours is here .

The Golden Compass is out 7 December
