Top Ten Characters from the "His Dark Materials" Trilogy

Really hyped to read the new Book of Dust trilogy for this so I thought I'd make this. It's a very good trilogy and one of my favourite books of all time is The Amber Spyglass.

The Top Ten

1 Lyra Belacqua Lyra Belacqua Lyra Belacqua, also known as Lyra Silvertongue, is the heroine of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy.

The main character of the trilogy. I won't go into detail about her as I don't want to give any spoilers but she is the girl from a prophecy who's "destined to bring about the end of destiny".


2 Pantalaimon Pantalaimon

Pantalaimon is Lyra's daemon. A daemon is like having a soul that lives outside the body as a physical being. They a connected with an unexplainable bond and one of the saddest scenes in the book is when Lyra has to leave her daemon behind to go to the world of the dead.

3 Lord Asriel Lord Asriel

Lyra's father starts a war against the Authority and is the person who managed to open a gap in the world and escape to the next parallel universe. Without him the whole story wouldn't work.

4 Iorek Byrnison Iorek Byrnison

Iorek Byrnison is an armoured bear and the king of Svalbard. Him and Lyra have a deep love for each other and Iorek always would do anything to help Lyra.

5 Marisa Coulter

This is Lyra's mother and the main enemy in the first book. She is a devoted mother despite being an awful person.

6 Will Parry

Lyra's companion in the last two books. He is in control of the Subtle Knife - a knife that is so sharp it can cut through universes.

7 Mary Malone

She is from our own world as well as Will Parry. She learnt of Dust thanks to Lyra and escaped from her world into a world with the Mulefa.

8 Serafina Pekkala

The main witch in the stories. She knows of Lyra's prophecy

9 Roger Parslow

Lyra's childhood friend who is killed and used by Lord Asriel to open a gate to another universe

10 Lord Boreal

The main enemy in the second book. He wants the Subtle Knife for himself

The Contenders

11 Ratter

Tony makarois' daemon. A black and white rat.
