Mermaid’s Charm: Your alluring voice stops the hearts of men. Male survivors have reduced movement speed while within your terror radius. Can be upgraded to affect female survivors but is less effective.

Backstory: Maria was orphaned at age 7 and was taken in by her uncle who was a fine captain. As soon as she was old enough, she was put to work, cooking and cleaning for the men as they fought vicious pirates and deadly beasts from the ocean. To pass the time, she often hummed songs quietly to herself, dreaming of a day when she could prove herself and become one of the crew. That day came soon after as the shipmates were entranced with her sweet voice. An audience would gather as she sung while cleaning the cabins, each song sweeter than the last, slowly drawing more and more men away from their posts. One fateful day as the crew gazed at her with awe, a ruthless band of pirates boarded the ship and took advantage of her position in the men’s hearts. They seized her, threatening to throw her overboard if her uncle did not hand over his ship. Maria begged her uncle to comply, tears brimming in her eyes and the crew cried for her safety. He refused. In an effort to teach his crew a lesson about loyalty to their captain and ship, he pulled out a harpoon gun and speared his niece himself. She stumbled backwards in shock, blood spilling from her wound as her cruel uncle turned his weapon to the pirates. She blacked out for a moment and when she reopened her eyes, she found herself drowning in the water, blood flowing freely from her and turning it red. Desperate for air, she tried to claw herself to the surface but her wound betrayed her, making her unable to struggle against the thrashing waves. A deep hatred burned inside of her, a hatred for her uncle and a hatred from the crew her failed to save her. As the life began to drain from her body, she felt a dark presence overcome her, changing her body whispering to her to take her revenge before, making her one with the ocean.
Many have told the story of the siren, a beast of the ocean, luring captains and their men to their deaths with her enchanting song. None have ever survived to confirm the tale.
