Final Fantasy VI PlayStation esper section

Siren (セイレーン, Seirēn?) is a recurring summon in the Final Fantasy series often portrayed as a beautiful woman who plays a harp. Her attacks usually focus on inflicting Silence on the opponent, but they sometimes also do minor damage.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy VIEdit

Siren - FF6 iOS

Siren is one of the first espers obtained. She costs 16 MP to summon. Her attack, Lunatic Voice (Hope Song in the original version), has a Hit Rate of 136 casting Silence on all enemies.

She teaches the following spells:

At Level Up, she provides a +10% boost to HP.

This is the first time Siren appears as a summon. She has three sprites: in the North American version of the SNES release, her exposed rear was censored. All of the censorship present in the SNES version was lifted for the PlayStation version, showing the original Japanese sprite. A third sprite was used in the Advance release (shown above), less revealing than the original Japanese sprite, and more revealing than the original American sprite.


Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

Siren-ffviii

The Siren (セイレーン, Seirēn?) (French Ondine) is a Guardian Force obtained by drawing from Elvoret at the top of the Dollet Radio Tower during the SeeD field exam. If the player misses Siren, they can draw it from Tri-Point in Ultimecia Castle. Obtaining Siren in the Steam version earns the player the achievement Siren.

Siren's attack, Silent Voice (サイレントヴォイス, Sairento Voisu?), deals non-elemental damage as well as inflicting Silence to all enemies. Siren's summon time is 17.6s, which, according to the Final Fantasy VIII Ultimania, allows the player to boost its damage to around 200% of normal damage using a regular PlayStation controller.

Its damage is calculated as follows:[1]

Damage = 55 * Level / 10 + 35
Damage = Damage * (265 - TargetSpr) / 8
Damage = Damage * 35 / 256
Damage = Damage * Boost / 100
Damage = Damage * (100 + SummonMagBonus) / 100

Irresistible songstress who beguiles eye and ear alike.
—In-game Description

Siren is the Rank 2 Water Aerial summon. Her normal attack, Kickline Dance, has the ability to inflict Stop, but she has no special attack. Her appearance follows that of the Sprite enemy in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.

Final Fantasy XIIIEdit

Siren eidolon

Siren in Final Fantasy XIII.

Siren makes a minor appearance during the Pompa Sancta in Nautilus Park. Also, there is an area of Eden named Siren Park, which is aptly named after the Siren whom appeared during the Pompa Sancta.

Alongside the mascot used in Nautilus Park alongside Carbuncle, Ramuh, Valefor and Ifrit, a fal'Cie by the same name also existed, a statue of this fal'Cie was seen in Bodhum during a flashback where Serah Farron tells Snow Villiers that she is a Pulse l'Cie.

Siren, alongside Carbuncle, is the only fal'Cie to also share its name with a mascot in Nautilus Park. Ramuh also originally shared its name with a fal'Cie, however the Ramuh fal'Cie was not included in Final Fantasy XIII in the end.

EtymologyEdit

[view  · edit  · purge]Sirens are from Greek mythology. In the story of Odysseus, the Sirens are beautiful women who lure sailors with their voices. Odysseus escaped the Sirens by having all his sailors plug their ears with beeswax. He was curious as to what the Sirens sounded like, so he let himself be tied to the mast to ensure he could not fall victim to their voices.
