Blink is appropriately named as that is indeed what he does. He travels through dimensional tears to get from one point and place to another. Although he does not transcend time as such, it is not without possibility if the correct circumstances were to align. Now his features are odd for a dragon. One so small and podgy does not instil one with fear or even with concern. However, as far as Blink is concerned, I must warn you to be careful, diligent and not take things as they seem.
Blinking, as I like to refer to it, is a past time for Blink. With no need to scrounge for hours looking for food or shiny things, he is content with sleeping, sleeping, sleeping and or sleeping his days away. Thus his enormous belly and tiny wings. Why would one need to fly when he can find someone that will carry him and keep him from harms way?
Please be mindful to keep your eye on him and any food or shiny object you may have or he’ll be gone with it before you can Blink!

“I am a teller of the past, not a prophet of the future”
No one knows from where he came, nor his true name. Yet all know of the myth of the storyteller that has told of the Strays’ fate for generations. He who never appears to age, and especially of the stories he tells. He is as allusive as the Companies Goon Squads and is never in one place for long. Entirely nomadic, he has no ties and seems to be the only true link to his peoples past.
The Star Crystal
“I am but an instrument to link you to your past.”
The Star Crystal is but a shard of the original tree. Its individual life started on that fateful night when the Stray presence was almost eradicated from the universe by The Company. However, that is another book for another time.
The crystal has a soul. Well, not a soul, more like, souls, in that it absorbs the most prominent feelings, emotions and even memories of those that it touches. The crystal can then, in the right hands be harnessed to provide the information that is required. Though, this in itself is very hit and miss for all but its owner and protector who has spent much time perfecting his use of it to tell of his peoples plight
