The description of Delph was obviously originally based upon Legolas.  I've been in love with Tolkien's elf since I first read 'Lord of the Ring's in 1976.  Although Tolkien never states Legolas's hair color, I always pictured him as a blond.  Delph was the first character I ever created - sometime around 1980.  He quickly took on his own personality - far different that Legolas - but I've never denied his origins.
