The Sirens (Σειρήνες in Ancient Greek) were three sea nymphs who lured sailors to their death with a bewitching song.
They were formerly handmaidens of the goddess Persephone. When she was secretly abducted by Hades, Demeter gave them the bodies of birds, and sent them to assist in the search. They eventually gave up and settled on the flowery island of Anthemoessa. They now live on an island in the Sea of Monsters (which might have been the same as Anthemoessa). They are part human and part bird. They can sing a powerful song that can force you to want to get to them, but there are mines, and sharp rocks that will kill you if you try. According to Annabeth, she wanted to hear the music to become wiser; since she is a daughter of Athena, it makes sense. Also, she wanted to hear the music that lured hundreds of men to their death, and used Percy to help her without being hurt.
In the series, the Siren's appeared as human sized vultures, with dirty black plumage, grey talons and wrinkled pink necks. The sirens have the bodies of vultures as described by Percy. They have human heads that change to the people you know, always smiling reassuringly, trying to lure their prey to their deaths, but their mouths were always greasy and caked with the remnants of old meals if seen clearly.
In mythology, they would appear as beautiful women playing harps sitting on rocks. They would sing in a voice that would tempt unsuspecting sailors to their deaths.
Fight one of these when you have at least 3 to four demigods.
Their talons, and voices are their deadliest weapons. The singing that they can produce will seduce a man to kill himself.
Being able to resist their song is enough to drive a Siren to kill itself.
They gather in groups of 2 and 3 to sing together to seductively lure unsuspecting travelers to their demise.
