His hair is very pale and his eyes are an unusual purple colour. The mot

expressive and usually give his feelings away.

Ippon had been tending his little patch of personal
plants when something unusual caught his eyes. At first he thought some
kind of eel had wandered into his garden and had taken residence in an
iridescent cup he'd found only recently. Upon closer inspection though,
the creature inside of the cup seemed to have spawned from a small
"You're a peculiar plant." Ippon spoke.
He had always been a firm believer of talking to plants to ensure they
felt wanted and appreciated. His magic seemed to work almost unconsciously
while he talked to plants and they always prospered in his presence. As if
reacting to his thoughts, the little critter extended it's head and rubbed

"No problem. I knew you'd like them." Ippon sent back.
Ippon watched as Wakame continued nuzzling and sampling the algae. His
mind once more wandered to the dragon's origins. Where had he come from?
And where there more like him?
Wakame lifted his head and asked:
"Would you like to take a trip?"
A small swirling spot appeared that seemed to pull at it's surroundings.
Ippon extended a hand and then he was off, Wakame right behind him, headed
for who knew where...
