Sorry to disappoint everyone but Harry is still in panther form. The familiar bond will be explained in chapter 6, as will several other important facts. When Harry is with Draco he will be Damian, thus he will think of himself as Damian. However, when we are reading from Harry’s point of view it will be Harry whose talking/speaking.
