Delphis is presented as a child. When viewed with the stories it seems a mystery that such a young person could interact in the way he does.
Although Delphis is presented as young, he has a strong sense of himself. By the end of his short story, and taken together with A Day in the Life of Nadiya, his veiled identity as an artificially conscious being becomes clear.
Showing Delphis to be so young not only presents him as non threatening, but indicates the short time that AC has come into existence on earth. Presenting Delphis in this way also encourages me to consider the thoughts and feelings of children as of equal value to my own.
