Bears are meant to be solitary

I have zero sculpting skills, but I’m capable of basic conversions (head swaps, etc.), so I’m looking for suggestions for existing figures to stand-in for characters from the His Dark Materials books (Golden Compass-Northern Lights/Subtle Knife/Amber Spyglass).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_His_Dark_Materials_characters

What I’ve found so far/need help with:

  • Misc. Daemons – Reaper familiars, for the most part.
  • Lyra Belacqua – Haven’t found a good option here. Maybe the girl from the Reaper pack below, but would prefer one in a dress/northern clothes. Lyra’s a bit too old (12-13) for me to use the girl from the Hasslefree 3 kids pack, which was my first inclination.
  • Lyra’s daemon: Reaper “weasel/ferret” painted as snow ermine.
  • Will Parry – Either of the boys from: http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/townsfolk/latest/50042
  • Lord Asriel – ?
  • Asriel’s daemon: The snow leopard from https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/leopard/sku-down/60020 is great for Lord Asriel’s daemon.
  • Iorek Byrnison – The Willy BB Warbear: http://willy-miniatures.blogspot.ca/2013/11/warbear-1695.html
  • Mrs. Coulter – ?
  • Mrs. Coulter’s daemon – a medium sized monkey…
  • Dr. Mary Malone – ?
  • John Faa – Any suggestions for the gypsy king? The Westwind ones are too “gothic” (although their caravan wagon is terrific)…
    Farder Coram – Older gypsy – ?
    Ma Costa – another gypsy – ?
  • Serafina Pekkala – This is pretty good: https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/witch/sku-down/60149 I’ll also need to find a good grey goose daemon.
  • Lee Scoresby – Was thinking of one of the many Foundry cowboys I’ve got, maybe with some goggles (since he’s an aeronaut from Texas). Any other ideas?
  • Scoresby’s daemon – a snow hare…
  • John Parry – Maybe a Foundry DA explorer?
