As a writer, what would you choose as
your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?

At the outset of revamping my site, I penned an article about my series: The Trailokya Trilogy: A Land of Wolves and Lions. Thus the site mascot was drilled down to one of two critters. By lion, if you are familiar with the series, I mean puma. How do I choose between the two?
The puma is a form that Captain Maiel takes, usually when angered. I also support wildlife conservation of that particular species, being that they are so severely endangered and a long time favorite animal. Yet, do either of these things warrant the animal adopted as the site mascot? I don’t think that it does.
The wolf has a similarly special place in my writing, my experiences, and my conservation focus. They serve as the loyal companion and colleagues for several of my characters. I also write a lot about dogs. Their heading the team here at Blue Honor would be consistent with the themes of the site.
Wolves have long been maligned; treatment they do not deserve. They are amazing creatures with great integrity. They symbolize nobility, strength, loyalty, and wisdom. This does not even touch upon the fact that it is their species that gave rise to the wonderful animal called Dog.
The above attributes are those to which I aspire. Thus, I believe the mascot of the site would have to be the manifestation of such. With all these things in alignment, I can’t imagine a better animal to symbolize my work.
