SMN44: Prairie Sirens

Location: The Great Plains, North America.

Status: Active.

Description and Behavior: Prairie Sirens are exclusively female anomalous entities found in the Great Plains of North America. They primarily prey upon the human male population of remote areas of the region. Physically they resemble a cross between birds and female humans. Their bodies are covered in long hair-like feathers typically of a drab brown color. They are equipped with clawed wings instead of arms and a serrated beak instead of lips and teeth. Limited flight is possible with their wings.

These entities are capable of drawing most male humans to themselves by means of anomalous singing achieved via mimicry. Any song sung by the Prairie Sirens will achieve this anomalous effect, though it can be resisted. Sometimes these entities will instead utilize their mimicry abilities to trick prey if they prove resilient to the effects of their singing, usually women or children. As an absolute last resort, they will use their clawed wings and serrated beak against their prey to forcibly subdue them.

Rudimentary communication is possible with Prairie Sirens as they can typically understand English or other local languages and can mimic words and phrases. As such they can be negotiated with. They can be convinced to cease predatory behavior in exchange of a more consistent food supply by delivery, provided they do not have a history that would cause them to distrust humans.

Recommended Actions: If encountering a Prairie Siren or Sirens, it is important to resist their song if you are vulnerable to it. Once you have resisted the song, or you weren’t susceptible to it in the first place, the Sirens may attempt to trick you. During this time, it is important that you try to establish a dialogue to negotiate a deal. This is your best chance for survival, as well as for minimizing future problems. If at any time they begin an attack, fight back or flee as no other options are left to you. Provided you survive, please alert local authorities so that the proper preventative measures may be taken to prevent further encounters.
