Sirens are creatures native to Kul Tiras. With their enchanting voices and songs, they lure sailors into shipwrecks to devour them. Intelligent enough to build small camps, they utilize their thralls as labor. Siren elders are known as "sisters". They are bigger, smarter, and stronger than younger sirens. Their voices carry far out to sea and bring in all the big "catches".
Wayne the Ancestral mentions that a Kul Tiran child was once taken with an idol into the sea and became the Enchanting Siren, giving the sirens the origin of being former Kul Tiran humans corrupted into sirens, as the naga are former night elves.
Notes and trivia
- In Zandali, sirens are called bwon'tulak, or "death singers". Though they are not found on Zandalar, Zandalari sailors do know about them.
- Sirens use the wind serpent animation skeleton.
- In Greek mythology, Sirens were dangerous creatures resembling winged women who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and singing voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island.
- The names of all the named sirens in Battle for Azeroth are derived from the names given by various Greek authors to the mythological Sirens or mythological figures otherwise: Mousa (Anthemusa), Inara (Inaras), Ligeia (Lugeia), Molpe (Nolpe), Parthenope (Patheope), Teles (Teres), and Daedalus (Dadalea). The Enchanting Siren, like almost all the quest objectives of Wayne the Ancestral, is a reference to the game Darkest Dungeon, specifically the Siren.
- Before Battle for Azeroth introduced the siren race, naga would often be used as a reference to the Greek sirens, such as the naga sirens from Warcraft III or Ophelia in .
