A meridian delphis hatchling is small but active almost immediately, and seems to instinctively know how to both swim underwater and breathe air. Their patterns are usually pale and small, but expand to cover their bodies as they grow. In the wild, hatchlings are raised in pods in order to protect them from ocean predators; as delphis are social creatures, magi should ensure they have at least one other companion if raising one without the benefit of a pod. Most hatchlings do best with creatures of a similar or slightly larger size, as they can be bullies if not taught from a young age. When in a pod or with companions, hatchlings enjoy floating on top of the water and whistling complicated tunes, though this can be grating on the ears.

Meridian delphis like nothing more than to float at the top of the ocean, soaking up the rays of the sun to charge the golden patterns on their skin. These patterns provide light during dark nights and when the delphis dives in search of food. They're found mostly in the warmer areas of the world, where they can get as much sun as they want, but some delphis have been known to travel north for short periods. Intelligent and curious, they're usually friendly to magi they encounter on the water and seem to enjoy working out different ways to communicate.
