Major Project: Quotes/Design info

Quotes referring to Lyra

'It might have been enough to make her cry, if she was the sort of girl who cried. Instead she gritted her teeth and moved the arm gently until it felt looser.' 

'The Scholars had more important things to do than attend to the affections of a half-wild, half civilized girl, left among them by chance.' 

'In many ways Lyra was a barbarian. What she liked best was clambering over the College roofs with Roger' 

'She had passed her childhood, like a half-wild cat' 

'There's a lot of goodness and sweetness in your nature, and a lot of determination' 

'She looked fierce and stubborn as she sat there'

'a blonde little girl' 

From these descriptions we can tell she's a small, blonde girl. Personality wise she is brave, determined and stubborn. She is more of a tomboy and rough around the edges.

Pantalaimon Forms

Moth (Dark Brown)
Small Lion
Bird (Rook,Canary, Goldfinch)

These are the forms Lyras daemon takes in the book. It would be interesting to create 2-3 of these forms for Pan to switch between. Moth and Ermine appear often and I am leaning towards designing these.

Alethiometer (Golden Compass)

"It was very like a clock, or a compass, for there were hands pointing to places around the dial, but instead of the hours or the points of the compass there were several little pictures, each of them painted with the finest and slenderest sable brush."

Symbols include: Hourglass, Sun, Alpha and Omega, Marionette, Serpent, Cauldron, Anchor, Angel, Helmet, Beehive, Moon, Madonna, Apple, Bird, Bread, Ant, Bull, Candle, Cornucopia, Chameleon, Thunderbolt, Dolphin, Walled Garden, Globe, Sword, Griffin, Horse, Camel, Elephant, Crocodile, Baby, Compass, Lute, Tree, Wild Man, Owl

The compass has many symbols as part of it's design, however with such a small character this may be difficult to incorporate, I may choose a few in order to simplify it.
