Siren

Sirens are capricious creatures whose singing can enchant other races (literally).

Personality

Sirens are not necessarily cruel, but they do enjoy enchanting and controlling others. They have a tendency to look down on other races, with the exception of elves, who they have a grudging respect for.

Physical Description

Sirens stand around 5 ft. in height, and weigh somewhere around 100-150 lb. Males are shorter and smaller than females. Sirens skin is usually darker, and their hair can range from blond to coal-black. Their eyes may be blue or gray. They are aquatic creatures, so they usually have an alternate form. Sirens live as long as Elves.

Relations

Sirens do get along well with many races, with the exception of elves, who have a resistance towards the siren’s music.

Alignment

Sirens are usually neutral with a tendency towards good.
