In greek mythology, sirens were mythical creatures who use their magical voices to entrance humans and make them crash their ships on the rocks. They are usually shown as half-woman, half-bird creatures but are also depicted as women or mermaids.
The Sirens are beautiful mermaids who are feared by all sailors. In Clash of the Titans, Sirens are associated with certain aspects of nature such as fire and water. In the game, their are two species, the Sirens of the sea and water and the Sirens of fire.
All Sirens have the appearence of a humanoid woman with a long serpent/fish-like tail that ends with a long, single fin. Sirens posses large, wing-like fins on their waists and short spiny fins on their backs. Both species of Siren wear jewellery such as crowns and bracelets.
Mermaids are a nuisance as they attack when Perseus is fighting other foes. They use long ranged attacks and will teleport if Perseus tries to attack them. Sirens are still dangerous and difficult to defeat, even when they are fighting Perseus by themselves.
