One of the rarer bloodlines, Sirens are usually mistaken
for Nightingales due to similarities in appearance and abilities.
This bloodline focuses more on emotional manipulation
than mental control, unlike the Nightingale. The Siren Bloodline
is one of the most romantically inclined of the bloodlines and
tend to have a large number of friends or romantic partners.
At one point, the Siren bloodline may have had its own
political structures and culture but following Nightingale
attempts to exterminate the bloodline, no such thing exists in
the modern era. As such, most Sirens live in Nightingale society
-- either hiding their true bloodline or entirely unaware of it. [See Nightingale Culture]
The Siren Bloodline
appears to those who have Pierced the Veil as having skin that's
a shade or too lighter than it was during life, though they have
a rosy, lifelike undertone to their skin, lacking the colorless,
sickly coloration of other vampiric bloodlines. They have
incredibly bright irises that possess slight luminosity to them
in low light with slitted, catlike pupils. They tend to have
small, delicate fangs with either the outer incisor or canines
being increased in size, rarely both -- due to this, their fangs
may go unnoticed until they feed or are in a sufficiently intense
emotional state (which is common for the Siren due to their
strong empathic abilities)
A Siren's claws
tend to be shorter than those of other bloodline but are usually
just as sharp.
Like the Nightingale, the Siren is a social hunter -- though
Sirens rely more upon romaance and seduction to pick their
victims, preferring to feed from long-term intimate partners
during sex or other intimate interactions rather than from
randomly selected prey.
bite of the Siren causes their victim to develop a temporary
emotional bond with the vampire -- which risks turning into a
dangerous obsession if the victim has a weaker mental/emotional
constitution. This may be why Sirens keep a dedicated pool of
victims as opposed to selecting random prey due to that risk.
This bite-borne emotional connection is a part of why the
Nightingale Court attempted to wipe out this Bloodline.
bloodline possesses incredible physical resilience and healing
capabilities, even compared to other vampires, being capable of
healing from wounds in days or hours that would leave another
bloodline incapacitated for weeks. In addition to this incredible
healing capability, the Siren is the least sensitive of all the
vampiric bloodlines, able to spend time outside during daylight
provided the weather is overcast without suffering damage, though
exposure to direct sunlight will still result in burns.
the Siren is capable of inducing emotional states in the people
around them with a touch or simply with their presence --
projecting feelings such as lust, anger or fear to mortals (or
even other vampires) of their choice. An offshoot of this ability
is that the Siren can force the memory of a feeling onto another
person and are capable of using this to devestating effect when
threatened by forcing their attacker to experience the agony
ofthe Siren's Change in a split second -- which leaves their
attacker incapacitated or, if mortal, may even result in death.
possess a stronger empathic ability than other vampiric
bloodlines in addition to possessing mental abilities similar to
the Nightingale, although less powerful.
Due to their incredibly strong empathic ability,
the Siren is particularly prone to the worse emotional effects of
the vampiric curse. They're also prone to losing control of their
ability to project emotions onto others when under stress and
have a bad tendency to accumulate stalkers.
