My Golden Compass Daemon is (drum roll, please) Olin, the Crow.
In Native American lore, Crow is the keeper of all sacred law, which is kind of a tall order if you ask me.
But there're some bennies, too. Crow gets to bend the laws of the physical universe and shape shift in order to see that higher order laws (like peace and harmony and integrity) get attended to. (I think when they say "bend the laws of the physical universe" they mean something more than just driving against the arrows at the Whole Foods, don't you?)
I'm not exactly sure how all this fits with my daemon crow, although "assertive" could be another word for law bender. Regardless, I like that my daemon's got wings and a good strong voice. Not necessarily melodic, I'll admit. But strong.
Check it out, and while you're at it, take the nifty little quiz and see who's embodying you!
