Having achieved success in pushing the boundaries of the physical aesthetics of ProtoMechs in the Cecerops, the Blood Spirits moved to a whole new level with the Delphyne. Incorporating a dragon motif, the Delphyne has perhaps the most radical appearance of any ProtoMech fielded to date.
         Despite this, or perhaps because of it, Clan Fire Mandrill's Kindra Mick-Kreese-unlike Clan Snow Raven and their reluctance concerning the Cecerops-was more than willing to participate in a joint venture for the funding and deployment of the final production model.

The Delphyne is arguably one of the most potent ProtoMechs currently in use by the Clans. The base frame mounts more armor than any other design, including the fearsome Minotaur. For offensive capabilities, it uses one of the heaviest weapons ever mounted on a ProtoMech, a medium pulse laser. Finally, as though to demonstrate the Blood Spirits' expertise in ProtoMech construction, the Delphyne's movement profile is extreme for such a large design, easily matching most heavy 'Mechs and even many medium 'Mechs.

The Steel Vipers captured several examples of the Delphyne before leaving the Homeworlds. Though the other Clans do not use the design because of its link to one of the two Clans that started the Final War, the Vipers did not have the resources to ignore an effective weapon. They reverse engineered the design and now field it in large numbers.
