Exploring character designs for a potential animated version of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials
Lyra is the 12 year old protagonist of Pullman's sweeping epic. She and her dæmon, Pantalaimon, are a feisty duo who survive encounters with beasts, angels, and the laws of physics through their wits alone.
Will is Lyra's deuteragonist - and her opposite in every way. Steadfast and illusive, Will acts only on defence - particularly concerning his family, or even more, Lyra.
