"People here cannot conceive of worlds where dæmons are a silent voice in the mind and no more. Can you imagine my astonishment, in turn, at learning that part of my own nature was female, and bird-formed, and beautiful?"
—John Parry to Lee Scoresby[src]

Sayan Kötör was the dæmon of John Parry. She had the form of an osprey.


As John Parry was born in Will's world, he was unaware of the existence of his dæmon. After travelling to Lyra's world, Parry met the shaman Ivan Kasymovich Tyltshin who taught him about the spirit world. It was here that John met Sayan Kötör for the first time.[1]
