Although the creature in front of Fitzgerald seemed vastly unfamiliar to him, the man had a genuine smile on his face as he scanned him. The colors meshed together quite nicely, better than many outfits on humans that he had seen, and the feathers added a subtle touch of softness that he couldn't help but admire. In a way, the dinosaur reminded him of Mikhin, except... Stronger. It made him wince a bit, knowing that what he had could've been wasted potential, but...
He sighed, knowing that it was probably best if he didn't consign himself to longing for things he couldn't get... Well, at least for now. There was always the chance that the green lizard could grow into something stronger over time, but for now, she seemed a bit... Petite compared to the cream raptor.
"You honestly seem like quite the interesting fellow," he remarked after giving a quick surveying glance to make sure that nobody was looking, "I actually wouldn't mind if you traveled with me sometime. You seem like the type of creature who can hold their own in the face of tough situations, and I have the feeling that you have potential that has yet to be achieved..." A smile, genuine for once, appeared on his face as Fitzgerald continued admiring the creature's features - from the sharp white teeth to the feathers... "I could help you reach that potential."
Sure, it was admittedly a bit ambiguous as to whether he actually wanted to bond with him, or just regard him as a status symbol, but... No sign of contempt or disdain was in his mind for once, and it felt odd, but refreshing. Very refreshing, in fact.
