Seraphena Syren Character in World of Wizard's Peak | World Anvil

Seraphena Syren

Lady Seraphena Syren

The Lady Seraphena Syren played to sold out concerts throughout the world. She was celebrated by the wealthy and powerful, but she sang from the point of view of the poor and the helpless. She was the voice of her generation... 75 years ago.

It is not polite to comment about someone's looks and age, but I'm an orc and I don't care! She's gotta be over 100, but there's no pointy eared elf-blood in her family! And we're all just going to pretend that she doesn't have fangs now?

The Lady Seraphena Syren represents a tangled web of concerns for serveral of the most powerful factions in the Kirinal Concordance Zone. She was born into a minor branch of House Molndal a century ago. With the patronage of her wealthier relatives, Seraphena became famous on the precursor to the Hedron Network. Performances of her songs were inscribed onto hex crystal with "The Ballad of the Gilded Cage" and "Eclipse of Truth" being her best selling songs.

She died at the age of 27 at the triumphant climax of her world tour in her home City of Molndal. At the finale of her song "Whispers of the Eternal", the audience rushed the stage and it collapsed beneath their weight. The Grand Duke's Theater promptly caught fire and the performers and most of the audience burned to death in a horrible tragedy that is still spoken of in whispers today.

I loved being Seraphena and she deserved a death equal to the glory of her life. The souls sacrificed that night fortify my power to this day! That offering of ecstatic worshippers and burnt flesh woke my favored daughter from her slumber. Of all my Sirens she is the strongest fighter, the best singers, and the most likely to succeed me... If I ever allow that to happen.

A few years ago, Seraphena reemerged as a high level diplomat and representative of House Molndal. In a world of resurrection, divine avatars, and time travel no one questions her return to the world of the living. They note that she sports fangs now and rumors abound that she has become a vampire. But Seraphena has been seen during the day and consuming food, things that should not be possible for victims of vampirism.

I build my Sirens with the same tools that forged me. As I live their lives, they endure the tortures that made me. Seraphena has been subjected to the three curses: the black chick, the blood thirst, and the hell pact. They interact creating a stronger being than any one curse alone. It will take more than a little sunshine to kill one of my girls!

During her years as a Secret Siren Agent of her mistresss, Seraphena most enjoyed working with the vampires of the Blood Moon Covenant. She became intrigued with the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Valentine, King of Vampires. Her contacts in Hell confirmed to her that Valentine's soul had never arrived there for its final reward punishment.

She suspected that Valentine had been taken prisoner during the Battle for the Barrow Shard. Her prime suspect was the late Thirion Elf-King. She has recently had that information confirmed for her.
