Siren

From Warhammer - The Old World - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Sirens or Mermaids are a race of cratures with the upper half of a female human or elf and the lower body of a sea creature. [1a]

They are notoriously reticent to deal with other races in any but a hostile manner and although they mainly feed on other sea creatures, they don't object to eating humans. [1a]

Appearance

Although legends say they have the upper body of a human (or Elf) female and the lower half of a fish, they actually vary considerably in appearance with different strains or family groups. Although some do have the lower torso akin to that of a scaled fish, while others have octopus-like tentacles or serpent bodies. [1a]

History

According to the Cult of Manann that the first Sirens were born of a tryst between the God and a powerful Naiad but that she was also sharing her charms with Stromfels, the shark god of pirates and thus Sirens take after the nature of one or both of their ‘fathers’. [1a]

It is said that the navigator families of Tobaro encourage them to sabotage their rivals, bribing them with jewelery. [1a]

Locations

Many are found on the islands of the Carvorna Archipelago that protects Tobaro and which are also known as the Isle of Sirens. [1a]

Weapons and Equipment

All have wicked claws, though some can apparently conceal them, extending them only when prey is within reach. [1a]
