What is a Siren?

A siren is a mythical creature that can sing
With a voice so sweet and enchanting
That sailors who hear it are drawn to the brink
Of the rocks where the sirens are waiting

A siren has feathers and wings like a bird
But also a face and a breast like a woman
She plays on a lyre or a flute or a harp
And sometimes she has a companion

A siren can lure you with beauty and charm
But beware of her deadly intention
She wants to devour you or cause you some harm
Or keep you in eternal detention

A siren is not to be trusted or loved
She is only a source of deception
So if you ever encounter one, plug your ears
And sail away in the opposite direction

What does a Siren look like?

A siren is a fantasy creature that has a human-like upper body and a bird-like lower body, with wings, feathers, and claws.

They live near the sea and use their beautiful voices to lure sailors to their doom.

Sirens are often depicted as playing musical instruments, such as lyres or flutes, to enhance their enchanting song.

They are sometimes shown as malevolent beings who eat their victims, or as tragic figures who long for human companionship.

Do sirens look like mermaids?

Sirens don't look like mermaids, according to the most common depictions of these mythical creatures.
They have the upper body of a woman and the lower body of a bird, while mermaids have the upper body of a woman and the tail of a fish.
Sirens are also known for their singing voices that can lure sailors to their doom, while mermaids are often portrayed as friendly and helpful to humans.
However, some sources may confuse or mix the two creatures, and show sirens as having fish tails or mermaids as having bird wings.

What is the difference between a mermaid and a siren?

A mermaid and a siren are two different mythical creatures that have some similarities but also many differences.

Here are some of the main distinctions between them:
  • Origin: Mermaids are part of the folklore of many cultures, especially in Northern Europe, where they are often associated with the sea and water.
    Sirens are exclusively from Greek mythology, where they are the daughters of the river god Achelous and a muse.
  • Appearance: Mermaids have the upper body of a human and the lower body of a fish, usually with scales and a tail.
    Sirens have the upper body of a human and the lower body of a bird, usually with feathers and wings.
  • Behavior: Mermaids are generally peaceful and benevolent, and sometimes help humans or fall in love with them.
    Sirens are evil and malicious, and use their enchanting voices to lure sailors to their doom.
  • Habitat: Mermaids live in the ocean, rivers, lakes, or any body of water.
    Sirens live on islands, rocks, or cliffs near the sea, where they can sing to passing ships.
  • Powers: Mermaids have the ability to breathe underwater, swim fast, and communicate with aquatic animals.
    Some mermaids can also control water, transform their tails into legs, or grant wishes.
    Sirens have the power to hypnotize anyone who hears their song, and make them follow their commands or crash their ships.
These are some of the main differences between mermaids and sirens.
However, over time, the two terms have become interchangeable and synonymous in popular culture, and some stories depict sirens as half-fish instead of half-bird.
Nevertheless, the original myths and legends clearly distinguish them as separate beings.
