 Daemon : Cacodaemons
In the His Dark Materials trilogy, Philip Pullman describes a fictional world where everyone has a daemon, although he spells it 'Dæmon'.
This spelling is used purposely today to distinguish the daemon of Greek mythology, "supernatural beings between mortals and gods, such as inferior divinities and ghosts of dead heroes", from the Judeo-Christian usage demon, "a malignant spirit that can possess humans".
Daemons are often launched at system start-up time, and often serve the function of responding to network requests, hardware activity, or other programs by performing some task.

 Scholastic Children's Books Book Zone: Philip Pullman

 Annotations for Pullman's 'Dark Materials'
PP relates 'dark materials' to the astrophysicists' idea of dark matter: [cite] [essay]
daemon was the same sex: "it was clear to me from the beginning that occasionally someone might acquire a daemon of the same sex" [cite] "...that might indicate homosexuality, or it might indicate some other sort of gift or quality, such as second sight.
daemon: "[How did you come up with the idea of daemons?] When I first saw Lyra in my mind's eye, there was someone or something close by, which I realised was an important part of her.

As solid materials, cyanurated chlorine is simpler and less hazardous to move and store, both for the merchant and the user, compared to liquid chlorinating solution.
Materials for handling chemicals must be carefully chosen, and proper precautions taken to avoid bodily contact.
Second, while the solid material is more convenient and less dangerous to transport and store than the liquid, it requires tedious mixing with water at the delivery point.

 His Dark Materials, a CurtainUp London review
Lyra's daemon, Pantalaimon is cutesy cross between a fox and a cat and in the hands of his puppet master, Samuel Barnett is convincing and touching as her animal alter ego.
All of the humans in Lyra's world are accompanied by "daemons", a creature which represents the soul and played by a puppet with skilled black clad puppeteers in attendance.
Other people have daemons ranging from small birds through lizards to large dog like creatures; the Gobblers' daemons are wolves with their teeth bared.

 [His Dark Materials] - [Forum]
"Scholars might know what was-- wrong-- with that man's daemon." Her voice broke as she involuntarily pictured the hunched form of the man and the last gasping breaths of his daemon.
She wondered if her friends had noticed her absence; pug-nosed Wallace, with his shy little daemon Kalii, usually a mouse tucked into his breast pocket; tough-talking Conroy, with his wildcat daemon Sheena, the only one of her friends whose daemon had set.
Lune shook her head no, and her daemon leaped gracefully to the floor, changing into a sleek black jaguar, one of his favorite shapes.

 Demon
In Philip Pullman 's His Dark Materials trilogy, dæmons are the physical incarnation of a person's soul.
Whether such a daemon was benevolent or malevolent, the Greek word most meant something different from the later medieval notions of 'demon', and scholars debate the time in which first century usage by Jews and Christians in its original Greek sense became transformed to the later medieval sense.
Building upon the few references to daemons in the New Testement, especially the visionary poetry of the Apocalypse of John, Christian writers of apocrypha from the 2nd century onwards creates a complication tissue of beliefs about "demons" that was independent of Christian scripture.

People's daemons can be "eaten" by Specters, and when this happens the person stays alive but they do not have any life to them.
As Serafina Pekkala says, "An insult to a bear is a deadly thing." The armored bears have no daemons, though they consider their armor to be like their souls, which is what the daemons are to humans and witches.
In Dr. Malone's case, her daemon was never separated from her but she could see it by looking a certain way.

She discovers that she can operate the Golden Compass of the title, an oracular device used by trained theologians, and she discovers a dark plot involving Dust (a substance that holds all of the power in the Universe, and can be used for good or evil, much like The Force).
These souls, or "daemons", take the form of small animals such as cats, snakes, rats, and monkeys.

 Book Addict Central - His Dark Materials - Northern Lights by Philip Pullman
One of the best things about this book is that it isn't about the daemons or the different world that the story takes place in, per se, despite being integral to the plot.They are part of the story without the story being there to showcase them.
The daemons, which are basically parts of people's souls in the form of an animal, who can't be seperated from their person, and who know their thoughts and talk with them, are an inventive idea.
This book was published under the title The Golden Compass in America.

 Teenreads.com -- THE GOLDEN COMPASS by Philip Pullman
Set in nineteenth century England and the arctic wastes of the North, THE GOLDEN COMPASS, the first installment in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, is set in a world much like our own, but different in many ways.
In Pullman's world, no human is ever without his or her daemon, for their lives and destinies are inextricably entwined.
Here, humans are paired with daemons or animal familiars, which are extensions of the soul, if you will, with personalities of their own.

 His Dark Materials
For kids and adults who like to read children's books, Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy of fantasy novels are second in popularity only to the "Harry Potter" stories.
And daemons are not evil, far from it, though they are the target of the church, which in Pullman's world is the chief villain.
Most of the daemons are seen as animal heads with flowing cloth bodies manipulated by actors onstage dressed and masked in black.

 Golden Compass by Philip Pullman, His Dark Materials fantasy books
He's is best known for the "His Dark Materials trilogy: The Golden Compass (1995, original UK title Northern Lights), The Subtle Knife (1997), and The Amber Spyglass (2000).
The His Dark Materials trilogy is intended to reflect elements of John Milton's Paradise Lost (1667).
Pullman brings his readers to believe in daemons as an integral part of his characters’ lives, to the point that we are actually shocked when we learn that the villains have been separating children from their daemons.

For those of you who know nothing about Lyra (then I suggest you read His Dark Materials before reading this book or you will be utterly LOST), she is girl, of around 13, who lives in a college in Oxford in a parallel universe to ours.
It is very short compared to Pullman's other books, but along with the story comes a map and various other documents the give more depth to the His Dark Materials saga and I've heard that Pullman has left clues hinting at the plot of his next book, The Book of Dust.
Some time after the epic events of His Dark Materials, Lyra and Pantalaimon are back at Jordan college.

As for His Dark Materials, I first read them when I was 12 when all three were out already so I had no time to wait for the next.
September 3rd, 2004, 07:02 AM I prefer His Dark Materials over Lord of the Rings because Lord of the Rings was too detailed.
While personally I like the immense detail attached to Tolkien's world, Lord Of The Rings can never be in the same league as His Dark Materials because the storytelling isn't very well done.

 BBC News ARTS Prize-winning novels 'set for stage'
Author Philip Pullman's trilogy of fantasy novels, His Dark Materials, could be turned into a stage play in London.
The stories are set in strange, mythical worlds where every character is accompanied by a "daemon", an animal that is its guardian angel and epitomises its soul.
The director of London's National Theatre, Nicholas Hytner, is in "advanced negotiations" to buy the stage rights to the books, which have been widely acclaimed and sold millions of copies around the world.

 Salon.com Books More dark materials
But while Pullman may have become caught up in adult theology -- and while he has won more grown-up readers with each "Dark Materials" book -- he keeps the swooping plots and passionate characters that make his earlier books so appealing to young readers.
"The Amber Spyglass" is the final book in the most ambitious allegory being published today, Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy.
Given the delicious promise of the first two "Dark Materials" books, some disappointment was almost inevitable.

 Philip Pullman's Dark Materials
In his "worlds," there are computers that talk to elementary particles fashioned of the dark materials, flesh-eating "Cliff-Ghasts," flights of beautiful witches many thousands of years old, myriads of angels, talking ten-foot-tall armored bears, wheeled creatures-"mulefas"-with elephant-like trunks, "gyptians," "Specters," Africans, and Tartars.
evidence that His Dark Materials may not really be the sort of thing that you would want to put into the hands of "young adults," if by that you mean impressionable children between the ages of seven and twelve.
Indeed, Pullman has taken the trilogy!e s overall title, His Dark Materials, from another account of the fall, Milton's Paradise Lost.
