"You see, I was burned for my sins. Only fair you should burn too."
—The Siren[src]

The Siren was a powerful demonic seductress who preyed on married couples, seducing and killing the husband and leaving the wife to burn in a fire like she had long ago. She was originally a mortal, but after her affair with a married man was discovered, the man was found blameless and she was burned at the stake. Her rage over this injustice turned her into a demon.


Early life[]

The Siren was once a mortal woman, who unfortunately fell in love with and had an affair with a married man. When their affair was discovered, the man was held blameless, but she was burned at the stake for her crimes. Everyone cheered as they watched her burn. Her rage at this injustice consumed her humanity thoroughly, transforming her into a demon bent on killing married couples for her own satisfaction. Her primary power is a seductive humming song that allows her to lure and thoroughly seduce any married man. When she kisses her intended target, she incinerates his lungs up from the inside, killing him. The song lures the wife as well, who would watch her husband be killed, and then be burned alive by the Siren.

Arrival in San Francisco[]


The Siren luring David.

The Siren came to San Francisco to hunt down and kill married men. She seduced and killed Melissa's husband, David, and nearly killed Melissa as well. However, Cole Turner saved Melissa by pulling her out of her burning apartment. The Siren, thinking she had killed Melissa, went to a local bar. She saw a handsome patron and began to flirt with him. After she discovered he was married, she began to sing her song, and his life was in her hands, however, when she turned her head to look at the television, she saw Cole carrying Melissa out of the burning apartment, alive. This enraged the Siren to the point where she left her prey, saying that it was his lucky day.

Going After Melissa[]


She tries to kill Leo

After discovering Melissa was alive, the Siren made another attempt on Melissa's life, and ran into Leo, who was protecting her after getting word that Melissa was a future Whitelighter. When the Siren saw that Leo was married as well, she seduced and kissed him. While Leo's Whitelighter powers protected him from the otherwise fatal kiss, he was visibly weakened. Piper and Paige orbed in to stop her. Paige saw the two kissing, and saved Leo by grabbing a metal pole and whacking the Siren on the back with it, causing her to fall over into a tray. Piper tried to blow her up but her baby's pacifistic tendencies caused her blast to merely cover the Siren in a colorful array of flowers. The Siren then thrust her arms at Piper, sending flying out of the window. In self-defense, Paige clutched the metal pole she grabbed earlier, and threw it completely through the Siren's stomach. The Siren smoked out and sought the help of a demonic healer to heal her nearly fatal wound. The healer was alarmed after finding out that the Siren had gone toe-to-toe with the Charmed Ones, but the Siren was not concerned; she felt that they were no different from other women.

Cole's Attempt[]


Cole is seduced

Cole took a run at the Siren, who effortlessly seduced him. The two even engaged in an intimate lovemaking session on her bed, with a shirtless Cole trying to kiss the Siren on the lips at every turn. Sensing that Phoebe was more in love with Cole than she was letting on, the Siren lured her as well. Phoebe heard her call and went off to find him, much to Piper's dismay. After seeing Cole supposedly killed by the Siren's kiss, Phoebe threw a vanquishing potion at her, but Cole blew it up; his demonic powers enabled him to survive the Siren's kiss, though he was still under her spell, and the kiss stirred up his growing demonic nature. He then began to kiss the Siren, saying he wanted her for himself. The Siren used this advantage to turn him on Phoebe.

Her vanquish

Piper and Leo orbed in just in time to find Phoebe being strangled by Cole. While Piper tried to save Phoebe, Leo, the only one with an offensive power, engaged the Siren in an epic battle. Leo lacked control over Piper's combustion power, but, with a lot of concentration, managed to hit the Siren on the third try, blowing her up and vanquishing her in the process. Killing the Siren released Cole from her spell, saving Phoebe and allowing Piper to heal her before it was too late.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • Sirens in Greek mythology are known to be hybrids between avians and humans with a compelling singing voice. In later European myths, sirens became known as mermaids who lure sailors to their deaths through singing.
  • Sirens are mentioned to have existed in the rebooted series. They were a group of mortal women chosen by a demon known as the Maestro to become magical sirens who could kill people with their singing voices. The sirens later entrapped the demon and took the glory for themselves.
