Technically you actually can create an entity like you described. That type of entity is called a thought-form. You would have to plan out its shape, size, color, and job. Also, you would have to make a different thought-form for every task like one to protect you from other thought-forms and one to help you with certain kinds of spells etc. I'm not really an expert on creating them but there are some people here who know a lot about that. You should PM one of them and ask for more details.

@watersage: You need to do some research. You do not know what you are talking about.
Otherwise, the thoughtform aspect is certainly one angle at creating an "entity" to aid you in specific tasks.
The other option is the creation of a servitor, which is a complex thoughtform that is capable of developing its own personal characteristics and therefore "learning" in a manner that allows it to expand upon original instructions and accomplish tasks as necessary. In this circumstance it can essentially develop its own sense of identity which can result in a whole new batch of problems.
you can create a energy being known as a thought-form, also known as servitor, which does a specific task you program it to do. If however you are looking for magickal help i will advise getting a familiar.
A familiar is an animal whether physical or spiritual that takes the role of assisting you in your projection of energy in your workings. Common servitors are known to be, snakes,cats,dogs,wolves,owl,rat,raven/magpie other animals as well. It does not mean any animal can't be your servitor, but it is important to know that these animals choose you and not vice versa. They are to be treated with utmost respect.
How to get a familiar?
well firstly i personally speaking to eiskora a moderator on this site, she as an excellent knowledge on familiars herself.
This two methods i personally can recommend.
For a physical animal
before doing anything magickal, establish a bond between you and the animal, if its your pet then better yet. be known some animals may come to you on their own waiting for you to realize that they are your familiar. If you have a connection to nature (which you should have in dealing with familiars) you can ask the animal if it wants to accompany you as a familiar. The animal will not physcially talk of course but there is a language in which the animal replies you can hear sound combined with imagery
If the animal agrees you can call upon the elements to bless the animal in doing this, still many witches believe that a familiar should never be a pet. I personally think just treat it with respect.
Step one: gather your items that represent the elements which should be contained in a circle or pentacle. Gather a crystal, special stone, or salt to represent earth, a candle to represent fire, a small bowl or glass of water to represent the water element, and incense to represent air.The element spirit is always present as your thought and will.
Step two: Cleanse the space you are going to work in and proceed by chanting: I invoke the power of the elemental forces nature, in the name of the creator/goddess (whomever you call) i ask that you bless this being of your creation to assist me in path. Let the beasts of the heavens and the earth bear witness and grant upon me their comfort and show unto me the ways of their speech.
Open the 7 channels of my body to receive the bounty around me, so mote it be!
Lastly take your right index finger and touch the animal's forehead and touch your third eye area, signifying the psychic relation ship between the witch and companion.
For a spiritual animal
there are familiars that can be in spirit form, which in most cases nowadays where physical animals can't be attained this is an excellent alternative. This method works for both physical and spiritual ones actually, i like this method allot more.
Sit in your meditation and call one to your self.
step one: Cleanse the area you are going to meditate in just in case it has negative energy. Then proceed.
When you have gotten into a relaxing position, visualize your self in a void of darkness, spend sometime in this darkness acknowledging its creative energy, open yourself nature now allow your heart to expand, focus entirely on your heart, let a green wave of energy overtake the darkness with a strong feeling of pure love. After this has been established visualize the waves reversing giving a calling to a familiar , don't focus on any animal in particular just let them come to you.

Well, all I was saying that Balthazar could go into dragon magick and learn more how to connect to his dragon. That was all, I practice dragon magick, I know what I am talking about, besides I have my own dragon, that is the only reason why I even said it. But everything that pureindigo said is correct, it is better to get a familiar than a dragon. A dragon is best when practicing dragon magick and to keep you company.
