Have you ever read His Dark Materials series by Phillip Pullman? The one where everyone's sole manifests as an animal beside them and until puberty can shift between forms and then settles on a single shape at puberty? Setting aside the kind of bizarre zoo that would inevitably turn the rebellion into, what sort of animal soul things do you think DAV characters would have? I'm dead curious about your thoughts :D

I have never read His Dark Materials but I’m familiar with the concept of daemons and how they work, so, here you go.

  • Leia’s daemon, appropriately enough, settled as a dragon. Her parents were always pretty unnerved by this, and Leia herself found it odd since there are no dragon species native to Alderaan. When she first meets Luke in that Death Star cell, he’s momentarily stunned into silence because there’s the Princess sitting there calm as you please with a Krayt dragon.
  • Luke’s daemon settled as a kokaru, a cliff-dwelling bird of prey native to Tatooine and known for its steep dives and incredibly acrobatic flight patterns. He’s immensely proud of this fact after Obi-Wan told him that his father’s daemon was also a kokaru.
  • Anakin’s daemon was indeed a kokaru, and still is, but Luke could be forgiven for not recognizing Vader’s daemon. When Anakin burned so did his daemon, and now she’s scarred and wingless. It would be a mistake to think that means she’s any less ferocious, though.
  • Han’s daemon, to his everlasting embarrassment, settled as a nerf. This is only made worse by the fact that Chewie’s daemon is a varactyl.
  • Ahsoka’s daemon is a moonmoth, an insect native to Coruscant. During the day it usually remains still, sunning itself, and is active at night, when its wings glow with reflected light.
  • Kadee’s daemon popped into rather startled existence the first time she said, “I own myself,” and pretty quickly settled as an anooba, a ferociously loyal pack animal native to Tatooine. Her anooba regards Kadee, Anakin, and Anakin’s kokaru as the members of its pack.
  • Palpatine probably killed his daemon years ago because that’s the kind of person he is.

Things I have discovered from flipping through the Ahsoka novel

1. Baby Leia loves her dad’s aquarium

2. Bail has nightmares about Order 66 and always has to go get Leia out of bed after them to make sure she’s okay

3. Breha has to make them both go to bed after this

4. One of the Inquisitiors came from such a big family that he literally cannot tell any children apart from each other. Bless.

Obianidala: Imagine someone gives Leia a locked trunk of Padme's things and Luke (who has been feeling a little off lately) and Leia open it. In it they find Padme's things and some of Anakin's, and Obiwan's, and some never used baby clothes. And pictures of Obianidala smiling happily together, of Padme heavy with twins, and of pregnant Anakin. How do they react?

At first it’s fairly bittersweet. Their parents clearly loved each other and were organising for their births so were probably excited for them. They never really met one of their parents and the other two were so broken by what Palpatine did that they were hardly involved in Luke and Leia’s lives as well.

Like it’s nice at parts, going through the things and finding out stuff about their parents (they both realise they inherited Padme’s fashion sense) and thinking about what their lives would have been like had what happened not happened. But there’s definitively a sadness to it as well – the live they missed out on and they’re realising it probably would have been pretty happy.

Finding the pictures that show that Anakin was pregnant as well as Padme? That’s fairly safe in the emotion of ‘sad’. Because they are pretty sure that child didn’t survive. They nearly had a sibling but whatever made Anakin Skywalker into Darth Vader appears to have destroyed that chance. Although it’s also super weird for them to think about – finding out they had a sibling was weird enough – thinking that, had what happened not happened, they would have had younger siblings (whether the one from Anakin was carrying in the photo or just generally) is really weird to them.
