24) What’s your familiar?
I don’t have a familiar.
I’m working on creating one, but have been delayed by other projects.
But Chirotus! You say. A familiar is a pet! You can’t create one!
Perhaps you best double-check on what a familiar is.
A familiar is a servant spirit. It runs errands and helps you with simple tasks. It can find things out for you, contact other entities, and generally act as a magical secretary.
Why the association with animals?
Because it was believed that a witch’s familiar could take the physical form of an animal, usually a cat. And since some such spirits function better with a material base, this isn’t too far off in terms of theory. And I suppose it’s possible that a per can act as a familiar as well.
But familiar =/= magic pet. They are whole different animals. (Heh)
