The Trickster and His Daemon - version 2 by LJ-Todd The Trickster and His Daemon - version 2 by LJ-Todd
*I already have a piece of art for Loki and his daemon, Thazium, but a friend recently suggested the idea of Loki's daemon being something other than fox and it was intriguing enough that I did this.

Blurb about Loki Laufeyson and his king cheetah daemon, Thazium:

Loki sat in the corner of the room Thor had called the gym and pretended to read a book while the others sparred and mingled. He occasionally glanced up, watching his brother and the Avengers momentarily before dropping his gaze again. He had just turned a page when Thazium pressed closer to his side.

"Thaz, what..." he started only to stop when he found Clinton's daemon, Rael, sitting not a foot from Thazium, looking at the king cheetah daemon with what might have been curiosity but Loki had yet to fully learn how to read the fisher cat.

Rael sat there a moment longer before stretching upwards, the tip of his nose lightly touching Thazium's. Loki was amazed that Thazium did not jerk away or growl. After their ordeal his daemon did not respond well to others. Rael pulled back just as quickly as he'd leaned forward. The fisher cat gave the slightest of nods before turning and running back to where Clinton was sparing with Natasha.

"Thazium?" Loki looked at his daemon, who was staring after Rael as though about to follow.

"Felt nice," Thazium whispered, voice full of awe, and he rubbed his head against Loki's chest, nearly purring in contentment. "His touch. It felt nice."

A warmth filled Loki at his daemon's words. He couldn't recall the last time Thazium had said that.

i absolutely adore the idea of the avengers having daemons and loki's daemon being a king cheetah is just brilliant it shows his sharp wit and ferocious personality
My only problem with this is daemon are the opposite gender of their people.

according to everything I've read a daemon is what a person needs it to be, so it is completely possible that a person's daemon could be of the same gender.
Nice, I have to be honest i kind of like this better(the first one I had to disagree about the first one, like I said I thought Loki was being kind of OOC in a way.)

Though I sadly found out that the Daemons come from, a work I sadly didn't like(I'm a Christian, now I don't freak out about the slightest thing, but the books kind of

printed Religion as being evil, again sorry) but I like the idea about Daemons, and thinks it's fun, with the matching animals and the friendship, how do you

chose to match them up? And I found a site that could help you, [link]

Thanks :)
Hmm, I think I like this better than the fox one, it touches deeper points of Loki's personality...

A trickstery animal IS kind of cliche, and as a visible representation of a persons soul a daemon aught to show more than what is innitially obvious about a person...

Cheetahs are intelligent and fast, but lack the massive killing strenth of other large cats.... So they rely on speed and strategy when hunting, much like Loki! Cheetahs are also a bit aloof, also like Loki.*G*

(as another exsample, while I'm thinking of it, Tony's hummingbird may characterize his hyperactivity and flity ADD personality, but Hummingbirds are also a symbol of creativity, and are extraordinarily protective. I personally can vouch for the protective bit... I nearly stepped on a nest as a child and got stabbed a few times. LOL)

I'm starting to like this one more than the fox daemon too. And it has a lot to do with the very thing you pointed out.

It better reflects Loki.
