    Love and War

    Delphyne was a top general for Princess Artume who lead the Amazons. Delphyne became dis-satisfied with Artume's methods and turned against her. A battle between the two ended with Artume losing her head and reverting to a stone statue and Delphyne assuming the mantle of "Queen of the Amazons".

    She had a short lived love interest with Amadeus Cho. Unable to be with Cho because of her new duty as the Queen of the Amazons, Delphyne hoped to find a way to free herself from the curse of the gorgons, returning her to human form so she could be with Cho. This plan, however, required Delphyne to kill Athena, who originally cursed the gorgons.
