However, the bestiary only counts familiars that are currently in your hoard or are equipped to your dragons. So to officially complete your bestiary it isn't enough to have just had/seen them at one point, you must have all the familiars in your hoard at all times. An acquired familiar's picture is colored in while an unacquired one's picture and description are greyed out.
Your familiar's bonding level stays the same even if you sell the familiar and get a new one.
