- reordered the glossary entries.
- 1 : Alethiometer: A symbol reader. A person who knows how to read it turns the hands to ask a question, and gets the true answer to anything.
- 2 : Daemon: A being mentally tied to a person, rather like their soul. It may act like a conscience. If the daemon gets hurt, the person also gets hurt, and vice versa. The daemons of people cannot go far from their person. However, witches' daemons can distance themselves, and the GOB can separate a human and daemon.
- 3 : Dust: Elementary Particles. The Church is very fearful of it and not much is known about it by most, other than it clings mostly to people whose daemons have taken their true form.
