Sirens, mythological creatures that were half women, were unsafe yet wonderful animals, who attracted close-by mariners with their enchanting gaze, captivating music, and voices, causing ships to wreck on the rough banks that the Sirens were on. Their song was said to be beautiful, yet sad in melody. If the sailors were unable to resist the sounds of the Sirens, a gruesome death would often follow. There are many tales of the Sirens in Greek Mythology, one of which is is encounter between Argonauts and the Sirens. Argonauts successfully evades the Sirens by having Orpheus, who is on board his ship, play his lyre, drowning out the song of the Sirens. Another well-known encounter is described in the Odyssey; Odysseus pluggs the ears of his crew with wax and orders them to bind him on the mast of the ship. He also tells them that no matter how much he begs, they should not untie him. In the event that the seafarers would not able to oppose the Sirens' euphoric tones, a frightening outcome would become their fate. This was often a grim demise.
