An interesting point in 'Penric's Fox' was that the Shamans often seemed to
echo their animals: when some of them helped on the foxhunt, the woman
with the fox-spirit had reddish hair and sharper features, the man with the
bear spirit was large and lumbering, the one with the dog-spirit was bouncy
and eager. Did they get their particular animals because they echoed those
creatures, or do they gradually build up more behaviours that come from their
spirit-animal? (I realise that they won't change all that much physically, but
possibly in manner and movement, as well as character.)

Are there any problems with clashing spirit animals? Do dog and cat spirit
people get on well, or not?
