On Day Ten of our countdown, we acknowledge the thematic (and humorous) contributions of Corra, Diana’s firedrake familiar. Corra is a symbol of Diana’s power, her mutability, her strength, and her need for complete freedom to work and shape her magic. At first, Diana attempts to tame Corra — she soon learns that the secret to magic (and to managing a wayward familiar) is letting it take its own shape. Corra can often be found menacing Ysabeau’s antiques or crooning at a particularly dirty song sung by Gallowglass. She is feisty, curious, mysterious, and unexpected — we love her in every scene where she appears.
If you had a familiar, what would it be? Tell us about it in our Facebook group, the Chamomile & Clove Clovers.
Ready for the next post? Here’s Day Eleven.
