|Marisa Coulter's dæmon|
35 (1962 — 1997)
Marisa Coulter's dæmon had the form of a golden monkey.
Like his human, Marisa Coulter's dæmon was often cruel and spiteful. He reflected the true nature of Coulter's personality: beautiful but evil. He rarely spoke. He appeared to have a particular dislike for Pantalaimon.
He was hateful, and often had the direct oposite personality of Mrs Coulter.
