Sirens are creatures native to Kul Tiras. With their enchanting voices and songs, they lure sailors into shipwrecks[1][2][3] to devour them.[4] 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".[5]

Wayne the Ancestral mentions that a Kul Tiran child was once taken with an idol into the sea and became the Enchanting Siren,[6] giving the sirens the origin of being former Kul Tiran humans corrupted into sirens, as the naga are former night elves.

The tigesage Brother Joseph can summon sirens to help him.
