Hi all, I'm curently writing a story which involves wizards. In my world there are only a few wizards, four to be exact. Now, they all have familiars. one has a cat (common and cliche, I know), one has a tortoise, and the dark one has a crow or raven (an other cliche). Now the fourth wizard is an apprentice and gets her familiar in the story. I want it to be something special. But I can't figure out what it is yet. I was thinking about a fox with antlers or an ferret with antlers (like in inkheart). What do you think is more interesting? What would you call it? I'm also open for other sugestions if you think of something more interesting. I would also like to know what you know of familiars and (if they are in one of your stories) how you use them. Thanks in advance!
