Special Sub-Topic: Do You Think You Know "The Northern Lights"?
|What is the name of Lord Asriel's daemon?|
Stelmaria. A daemon in Lyra's world is a person's soul, visible and animal shaped. Pantalaimon is Lyra's daemon, Sophonax is Farder Coram's, in the form of a cat. Kyrillion is the daemon of Annie, a girl in Lyra's dormitory at Bolvangar. Stelmaria is in the form of a snow lepord.
|The Aurora is the same as the Northern Lights.|
t. The Precentor asks Lord Asriel, in the Retiring room, if the Aurora was the same as the Northern Lights. Lord Asriel says yes and that it has many names.
|What is name of the pastry cook at Jordan Collage, who Lyra shouted out when Rodger, her friend, was taken by the Gobblers?|
Bernie Johansen. Bernie was also the gyptian's contact at Jordan and watched over Lyra for them. He is one of the rare people whose daemon is the same sex as he is.
|What goes in the blank?
One of the alethiometer's symbols is a hourglass with a skull on top.
"In the hourglass range of meanings you get -----. In fact, after time, which is the first one, ----- is the second one."|
Death. The Master of Jordan Collage gave Lyra the alethiometer and from it she can read the truth.
|At Gabriel Collage, there was a very holy sculpture which stood on the high altar of the Oratory.|
f. There was a photo mill at Gabriel Collage which was the holy object that was kept on the high altar of the Oratory. Pantalaimon reckons elementory particles turn the photo mill and the alethiometer's needle.
|What kind of metal was Iorek Byrnison's armour made out of?|
Sky-iron. Iorek Byrnison was a armoured bear and was exiled from Svalbard for killing an another bear. His armour was taken away and he made a new one in Nova Zembla out of some sky-iron, which fitted him, and together they were like one.
|What is the blank?
------ is the quickest way to fill a hot air balloon, according to the aeronaut who the gyptians employed.|
Ground gas. The aeronaut was called Lee Scoresby from Texas. Later he learns to love Lyra like his own child and helps in every way he can to protect her.
|What does Lyra call herself when the Samoyed hunters kidnap her and take her to Bolvanger?|
Lizzie Brooks. She calls herself Lizzie Brooks at Bolvanger in case someone heard about her connection with Mrs. Coulter and had her kidnapped for that reason.
|What is the name of the daemon belonging to the witch, Serafina Pekkala, and what form is he in?|
Kaisa- snow goose. Serafina Pekkala and her witch clan helps to get the children away from Bolvangar. Witches have the power to separate themselves from their daemons and they can go a hundred miles away from them unlike humans whose daemons can only go a few feet from them.
The rest of the daemon's names are those of the former Master of Jordan Collage.
|When does Lyra get the lost caged daemon free and who helps her?|
During the fire drill and Kaisa. During the fire drill Roger, Lyra and Billy Costa (a gyptian boy who was Lyra's friend in Oxford) go off to explore. They come across a suspicious building and Kaisa, who had followed them, helps to get all the daemons who had been cut away from their humans to escape. Then Serafina Pekkala's witch clan realised what the people at Bolvanger really did and helped the children to escape.
|What kind of tea does Mrs. Coulter give Lyra after rescuing her from under the guillotine?|
Camomile. Some men catches Lyra eavesdropping on their conversation on cutting children away from daemons. To prevent her from telling the other children what she heard, they put her under the guillotine, which would almost certainly kill her, and nearly succeded in separating Pantalaimon from her. Mrs. Coulter unexpectedly walks in and takes Lyra to her room and gives her some tea to calm her down.
|All of the Tartar guards' daemons are snow leopards.|
f. They are all wolves. When it looked like Lyra and the escaped children were all going to die, Serafina Pekkala and her witch clan turned up and so did Iorek Byrnison. They fought the guards while the children escaped.
|When Lyra is trying to prove to Iofur Raknison that she is a daemon, Iofur asks her a question which only he knows the answer to and Lyra has to tell him the right answer. The first question was,
"What was the first creature I killed?" What is the answer to the question?|
His father. Iofur asks her two questions and Lyra goes into a little room off the throne room where they were and asks the alethiometer.
|What does Iorek Byrnison rename Lyra's surname (Belaqua) as? |
Silvertongue. When Lyra tells Iorek that he has to fight Iofur, Iorek tells him that is all he wanted to do. He thought it was impossible to trick a bear and showed her so but it is obvious that Iofur was tricked by Lyra and he named her Silvertongue.
|What is the blank?
"Somewhere out there is the origin of all the Dust, all the death, the misery, the destructiveness in the world. Human beings can't see anything without wanting to destroy it, Lyra. That's ------- sin. And I'm going to destroy it. Death is going to die."|
Original. Lord Asriel was talking about going into the other world in the Aurora to Lyra. She doesn't realise then that she hadn't actually rescued Rodger but betrayed him and brought to Lord Asriel the one thing he needed to compete his bridge to the other world-a phenomenal burst of energy. A link between a body and daemon. Rodger's.
