Sailor Aluminum Siren (セーラー・アルーミナム・セイレーン, Seeraa Aruuminamu Seireen was the second of the Sailor Animamates to be introduced in the manga.
Nomenclature & Etymology
Sailor Aluminum Siren's name follows the same naming pattern as the other Sailor Animamates of "Sailor" + [metal] + [animal]. Siren is a reference to the sirens of Greek mythology, who drew sailors to their deaths with their enchanting voices and music. Although not quite an animal, sirens were originally depicted as bird-like in various ways. They were also later portrayed as fish-like - similar to mermaids - and the two mythical creatures became somewhat interchangeable in popular use and in some languages since. Sailor Aluminum Siren's origin planet, attack name and most of her appearance all reflect mermaid imagery. In the Materials Collection, Ms. Takeuchi notes that the character was intended to control people with song (although that power is not used in the manga) and that her voice is "husky".
Although she has no formal civilian identity in the manga, she is briefly shown blending into a crowd at a concert wearing a spaghetti-strap top or dress along with her earrings which are described below.
Sailor Aluminum Siren has long wavy blue hair that reaches almost to her ankles with blue eyes to match and pale skin. According to the Materials Collection, she is the same height as Sailor Star Maker and manicures her nails to sharp points. Three of her accessories feature a yellow five-pointed star: winged earrings, a lilac ribbon crossed over her face, and a beaded choker with a large scallop shell. Her other accessories are the Galactica Bracelets and a long beaded necklace. She wears a sky blue high-low dress that is open in the center, revealing a lilac v-shaped bikini bottom. The two sides of the dress are tied across her torso with crisscrossing lilac ribbons. The back of her dress features similar ribbons. She has a matching blue sailor collar and suspended socks or stockings. Her outfit is completed with a pair of white high-heeled slingback shoes featuring crisscross straps that come up to her mid-calf.
Sailor Aluminum Siren first appeared in the manga in Act 51 - Stars 2 (originally, Act 44) when she spied on the Sailor Guardians during a Three Lights concert. The next day, she appeared at Juuban Municipal High School, drawn there by Seiya's singing. She initially attacked Usagi and the Three Lights. Then she traps Sailor Mercury and Sailor Jupiter, using her hair to use them as shield before Sailor Moon's attack which obliterated them and then extracted their Sailor Crystals. After she did this, however, the Sailor Starlights transformed, and Sailor Star Healer and Sailor Star Maker destroyed her.
It was later revealed that Aluminum Siren, like the other Sailor Animamates, was not a real Sailor Guardian but was only granted her powers by Galaxia in exchange for killing her home world's true protector. In Siren's case, she had usurped the powers of Sailor Mermaid, the Sailor Guardian of planet Mermaid.
According to the Materials Collection, she sings and writes ballads as a hobby.
