Sophonax was Coram van Texel's dæmon, affectionately known to him as Sophie.[1] She took the form of a large autumn-coloured cat.


During the journey to the North with the Gyptians, Sophonax helped Coram catch the Spy Fly sent by Marisa Coulter to find Lyra Silvertongue.[2]


Settled form

Sophonax had a coat with colours varying from golden brown to the colour of autumn leaves. She was very large for a cat and appeared strong and healthy despite Coram's sickness.
