Siren



Sirens, according to Greek mythology, were the daughters of Aqueloo and a Muse. They are creature half woman and half bird. They had a very melodic and smoothing voice that no sailor could resist them, they could challenge the Muses in a singing contest.



Here, the Muses emerged victorious, and because of that sirens started have their precious bird wings. Sirens, after such a humiliation decided to flee to the coast of Sicily, where it is said that even reside. To avenge the affront of the Muses, they attracting sailors circulating in that area, they sing a beautiful songs. The sailors who hear this song could not avoid hearing, and approach them to die while the ship crashing against the rocks near the island. In our culture when we speak of a siren normally imagined with a creature where the top of his body is a woman and bottom is a fish like mermaid.

There are some theory about his appearance, some story mentioned that he shaped like a fallen angel, others mentioned Valefor had a lion body and human head. There is also a third theory which mention that Valefor had goose head and legs, body and tail of a lion hares. Curiously none of these three definitions coincide with what appears in Final Fantasy X, but it is true that his appearance in the game has an appearance of a demon.

Valefor is the protector of thieves and helps them steal. It also said that Valefor is know both of the events of the past and will happen in the future.

Phoenix was the only creature who did not want to taste the forbidden fruit, overcoming temptation. Unfortunately a spark came to a small nest and the bird burned, but as a reward for overcoming the temptation banned was granted immortality.



Phoenix emerged from the ashes like a giant bird of unmatched beauty and singing. In appearance, the phoenix resembles an eagle but ten times larger, is involved in fire and its reddish plumage is so beautiful that all animals were creating envy him.
