Having established themselves as the 'ProtoMech Clan'-one of the few Clans actually developing a full ProtoMech training program, and the only Clan attempting to develop a dedicated ProtoMech phenotype in the second generation of ProtoMechs, the Blood Spirits moved to break new ground and push the boundaries. As Clan Smoke Jaguar originally crafted the very armor of the ProtoMechs to instill fear in their enemies, the Blood Spirits were determined to take that to a new level. The first such design was the Cecerops.
         Though it certainly bears 'snake-like' qualities-thus its name-many pilots of this new design have noted the amazing similarities between the Cecerops and the sphinx raptor, one of the most deadly alien creatures in the Clan Homeworlds; this is a comparison any Clansman finds favorable.

Speed. As the defining characteristic of the Cecerops, only the Siren ever attained a higher top speed; the ProtoMech can outdistance most 'Mechs easily and even most hover vehicles. Even the 'alien-ness' of the design's armor aids the speed, with the forward thrusting head and cowl aerodynamically engineered to reduce drag.
         The inclusion of an extended-range micro laser in place of the Siren's twin light machine guns not only provides more firepower in a single salvo, but also eliminates the need for ammunition dependence, which was important to the resource-starved Blood Spirits.

Though the Snow Ravens were originally reticent to take their first shipment of Cecerops due to the extreme and alien aesthetics of the design-a situation which led directly to the Chrysaor following the more traditional ProtoMech physique-its debut against raids by the Star Adders soon changed their minds and it became their primary light ProtoMech.
         Currently only the Snow Ravens field the Cecerops, where its speed and ferocity is valued.
