Sirens (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Sirens are capricious creatures whose singing can enchant other races (literally).
Sirens are not necessarily cruel, but they do enjoy enchanting and controlling others. They have a tendency to look down on other races, with the exception of elves, who they have a grudging respect for.
Sirens stand around 5 ft. in height, and weigh somewhere around 100-150 lb. Males are shorter and smaller than females. Sirens skin is usually darker, and their hair can range from blond to coal-black. Their eyes may be blue or gray. They are aquatic creatures, so they usually have an alternate form. Sirens live as long as Elves.
Sirens do get along well with many races, with the exception of elves, who have a resistance towards the siren's music.
Sirens are usually neutral with a tendency towards good.
Sirens dwell in Aergaela, primarily on the coast.
Sirens worship Chthon, an Earth and Sea Mother goddess. She demands total obedience from all her followers.
Sirens speak Aquan, Auran, and Common.
