Slippery, alluring, perhaps dangerous, the Siren is always around.  She is ancient and she is Legion.   She is as much a constant companion of the Sailor as the Woman although her face, race and form may change.  The wrecker of ships, never the wrecked,  she is as at home in the waves as the Sailor  -  perhaps the most at home in the waves of any of the Three.  She is ready for storm and loss, and even death, to which is she is indifferent.  She metes out death almost accidentally, dragging down the Sailor with nary a thought.  Perhaps even more vibrantly and eternally of  any of the Three,  there is always the Siren.
