Clio Delon (クリオ・ドロン, Kurio Doron) is a character featured in the anime and manga series, Beyblade Burst Evolution. He is a member of the French team, AS Gallus. His current Beyblade is Deep Caynox 4Flow Bearing.
Clio Delon has spiky gray hair that angles outwards with a long spike pointed down in between his magenta eyes. Above and below his left eye are a pair of red diamond-shaped marks. He also has pointed teeth like those of Silas, Xander, Lui and Jin; along with two prominent fangs that give him the appearance of a vampire.
Clio wears a black cloak with golden accents and red gems that curves upwards at his neck and looks similar to a vampire's cloak. Underneath it, he wears a white cravat and a double golden buttoned green blazer. His sleeves are cuffed with white ruff and he wears black gloves. Clio also dons black pants with light orange stripes at the bottom tucked into light brown socks and brown loafers.
When he was younger, he retains his current hair style and marks; he wore a white collared shirt with a pair of black suspender shorts. He also wore a black cape tied with a green-laced bow, white socks, and black shoes.
He is quite scary and seems to be a friend of Cuza and also helps him in practice in episode 40. However, he doesn't seem to notice that Cuza is afraid of him due to the fact that one of Clio's past magic tricks scarred Cuza for life.
Despite his spooky appearance, Clio is actually very friendly and supportive and encourages Daigo during his match with Joshua.
Clio is also shown to be great with magic tricks, as he and his entire family are famous magicians (according to Ataru).
