The Siren Song is a potent ability possessed by sirens of the merfolk species. This power is rooted in their unique voice box: a hybrid of a larynx and a syrinx at the base of the trachea. It's described as almost supernatural; able to lure all who hear it towards the songstress.

It is a melodious, angelic song of vocals, it makes the person feel relaxed and released of all the stress and problems in life, all they want is to hear the song longer and longer, without lyrics to tell those who are enchanted and obsessed with the mermaid who sings it what to do in lyrics. Eventually, the Siren Song leads the person that hears it to hallucinate seeing that mermaid everywhere and hearing their Siren Song out in the ocean. The person will then be driven into the water to find that mermaid but eventually drown.

About the Siren Song Edit

Season 1 Edit

It was more than 150 years ago that a fisherman had fallen in love with a mermaid in these very waters, enchanted by her beautiful siren song.
— Young Boy to the crowd in "Pilot"

You know the stories about a Siren song? It's something they do. Maybe it's some kind of defense mechanism.
— Ben speaking to Maddie

How do you know about it?
— Maddie to Ben

Because Ryn sang it me the night we met. It's like...I don't know. Gets inside your head. It's like a drug.
— Ben to Maddie

Will you sing to me again?"
— Ben to Ryn

She sang to escape from you. Not because she loves you.
— Ryn to Decker about Donna's use of her siren song

Ben asked me to sing to him. So I sang. I made him feel better.
— Ryn

Are we talkin' about the Siren song?
— Helen

Do you know what it means?
— Maddie to Helen

My ancestors said it had different meanings: Great love to some. But to others it could be...dangerous. Obsession. Mythologists called it a euphemism for obsession.
— Helen to Maddie about the melodiously hypnotic siren song.

I didn't know my song would do this.
— Ryn's regret at how her hypnotic melodious singing voice has deeply affected Ben

It's the song, isn't it? Decker killed himself. Donna drove him insane.
— Maddie, worried about just how much the Siren song has affected him as it did Decker.

Season 2 Edit


Trivia Edit

  • It has different, stronger mind-blowing effects on the one who hears it more than once; from great love to dangerous obsession.
