The creature is about the size of a 12-16-year old human. He is anthropomorphic with a torso, two legs, two arms, a head on a neck and a face in the usual arrangement. His skin is the palest shade of gray white. The skin appears soft and smooth and thick. There are no scales, no visible hairs, no feathers, or other visible distinctions on the skin. The coloration appears to be the same pale white throughout from head to tail to feet.

He looks to be a bit skinny in a way that seems to suggest that he would be slightly famined. He has a tail which is notably thicker at its base than at the tip of the tail. The tail is not long or slithering, and seems supported and not dragging to the ground.

Large bat-like leathery smooth wings of the same color as the skin are attached along each arm spanning from the hand or wrist all the way along the arm and attached from under the armpit and some length down along the side of the body.

There are possibly five fingers on each hand. Each foot appears to have five toes. Four of the toes point forward, and one toe points inward. Each toe has a small sharp white or transparent claw. The creature appears to have a sharp beak. Unclear whether it has teeth in its mouth. There is a long thin stringy tongue. The eyes glow red.

Physiology & Behavior

Ceremonial magic

The most prominent behavior is what another similar creature which I call the Ken Bakeman's pteradactyl called "ceremonial magic". It consists of the creature standing up taller, spreading its winged arms out to the sides, and pointing its chin up. The behavior is frequent and would remain a mystery but thankfully I am able to speak with these creatures and ask them to describe it. The Ithaca white dragon described it as being "territorial" behavior. Ken Bakeman's pteradactyl called it "ceremonial magic". (Ken Bakeman)

Ceremonial magic is a term from theatrical studies, and lists costumes or practices done to instill a special magical mood or atmosphere upon the audience. Ceremonial magic is seen in wedding ceremonies, other religious ceremonies, in theatre, rock concerts, and so on. It is a form of acting and display, intended to be flaunted at an audience, and intended to instill a particular emotional response or impression on the onlooker.

There is also a third individual of the same species, the North Port Florida white dragon whom I called Gargoyle. The Gargoyle also displays this behavior frequently.

I have observed in Ken Bakeman's pteradactyl that the ceremonial magic starts in a soft tissue region on the upper back, felt by the creature as a tingle, which then transmits a neural or similarly corresponding signal carried along the arms, resulting in a spontaneous, not consciously chosen response of the arms being spread up and to the sides, and in the process spreading its wings in a display. The behavior is also connected similarly to cause him to want to stand up tall and raise the chin, and allowing arms, posture, and chin to be stretched also alleviates that feeling of tingle it is feeling.

The behavior however starts in his thoughts. There is always something that he is thinking, which then spontaneously connects to the expression of this behavior. Similar to how a human thinks angry thoughts and it spontaneously makes us a frown, or thoughts of love and affection that make us smile. The creature does not choose to adopt the pose, rather it is a wired expression, part of its body language.

A variety of thoughts or emotions can trigger the ceremonial magic. It is difficult to classify the types of thoughts. Generally speaking, things that will make him feel proud. It is best to read the telepathy pages to form an idea of in what situations this occurs. In the Gargoyle, thoughts of food would make him display the wings and stand up tall.

Many beginnings of ceremonial magic posture do not become completed and are only done halfway before it relaxes back down to its usual posture. The ceremonial magic posture is typically brief, typically lasting from one to five seconds only. I have not witnessed it being able or attempting to entirely prevent this behavior from occurring, as it seems to always at least partially get carried away with it, most likely allowing some of it so to alleviate some of that tingle sensation it experiences in its back and arms that triggers the behavior.


All three white dragons, Ken Bakeman's pteradactyl, Ithaca, and Gargoyle, maintain a soft posture with bent knees. The Ithaca white dragon notably spends most of his time in a standing posture that is slumped down with bent knees, often even to the extent of squatting down. It of course straightens out into the ceremonial magic posture on frequent occasions, but only to resume back to squatting posture with bent knees.

The creature took a nap and lied down on its left side directly on the muddy forest floor, curling up a bit and wrapping its wings around itself. It used no makeshift artifact of bedding surface, nor did it opt to rest on grass, leaves, or vegetation. The nap was brief and lasted only for a few minutes.


This creature eats and talks about eating a lot. It appears that he is purely a carnivore. He rejects thoughts of eating lettuce, and nuts. He talks about eating mice, dogs and canines, horses, and humans. He has not made any references to eating the flesh, and talks extensively about the consumption of blood. He expresses interest in consuming the heart, but that in itself may be another reference to blood.

It is unknown whether the creature drinks water, or whether blood would be its only fluid source. Its nutritional needs are also not known, nor any more explicit details of its metabolism.

A significant problem that the creature brings up constantly, is its runny feces. The creature claims to be covered in its own dung. I have caught a few glimpses of black liquidy substance on its rear end, but he appears bright and white and clean overall. The creature may have a problem with fecal incontinence, something which neither Ken Bakeman's pteradactyl nor Gargoyle were afflicted by. And since only one of three members of this species were afflicted, it is reasonable to suspect it being an individual characteristic, and not a species determined one.


Its frequent complaints about runny feces could suggest that he is having a problem that is not typical for him. One can not rule out the possibility of a disease. For instance a human camping out in the jungles of Guatemala would be more than likely to become afflicted with an infection from parasite, virus or bacteria causing diarrhea. I may have some concern for his health, his problems with runny feces and the famined look. I will speak to him and see to it that he gets medical care in one way or another. I also want to make sure that he gets more food, one way or another. If blood is his diet, I am one of many humans who would be willing to offer him a bag of donated blood. I will not have this creature suffering from ill health in the jungles somewhere, all alone and covered in dung if this is a problem for him. Perhaps animals should be left alone in wilderness untouched by biologists who study them, but the qualities of the Ithaca dragon make me classify it as a person.

Personality characteristics

The Ithaca has a notably charming personality in the same way as North Port Gargoyle, although Gargoyle even more so. There is something very playful, curious, mischevous, cute and fun about his character.

He doesn't formulate expressions of aggression, even though his plans of traps might be interpreted as hidden ones. He has expressed concern: he feels concerned about his latrine. He expresses a clear sense of self and identity. He is aware of his own identity, aware of his outer appearance, and he can contemplate on how another being would experience him.

In his interaction with me, he is clearly courteous and fully capable of imagining into my situation, meaning that he is capable of empathy. He also expresses having understood that the human sacrifices felt pain. He can picture himself into the situation of another. If empathy is the ability to imagine someone else's experience independent of one's own, compassion is the ability to want for someone else to be doing well without the expectation of personal benefits. While I see empathy in him, empathy could also be used by a predator to figure out the behaviors of a prey or how to manipulate a prey into a trap. I do not recall having seen any examples of compassion in him, but we will see as his personality unfolds as we interact more.
