This mysterious élan-like being came to Dragon when he was a small child, and has been tangled up in resonance with him since. It’s not a piece of an élan like Stella, the alien consciousnes inhabiting the Stella-Maru, nor is it a full élan the other aliens recognize. This has caused it–and Dragon–to be viewed with suspicion by most people in Freedom, although it tries hard to be useful, always hopeful that someday it will learn how to belong.
