Pamella, Forest Siren


From beyond the trees comes the beauteous sound of a lyrical voice, its source a creature singing as she bathes her brilliant wings in the waters of a clear spring. More than once have Pamella's entrancing melodies led a lost traveler into the "Forest of Illusions". From the chirping of crickets to the sunlight that shines through the trees, it is a lace filled with allure. After entering the deep grove, all lose themselves as they listen to her songs and gaze at her figure, seemingly helpless to resist her charm.

Name originEdit

Pamella or Pamela is a feminine name of Old Greek origin; the meaning is "all black; all sweetness, honey". The name was invented in the 16th century by the Elizabethan poet Sir Philip Sidney for his pastoral work Countess of Pembroke's "Arcadia" (1590). He could have derived the name from the Old Greek Pammelas, of the elements pan ("all, every") and melas ("black, dark"), or else the second element could have been meli ("bee, honey").

In Greek mythology, the Sirens were dangerous yet beautiful creatures, portrayed as femmes fatales who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. Sirens were believed to combine women and birds in various ways. In early Greek art, Sirens were represented as birds with large women's heads, bird feathers and scaly feet. Later, they were represented as female figures with the legs of birds, with or without wings, playing a variety of musical instruments, especially harps. Later Sirens were sometimes depicted as beautiful women, whose bodies, not only their voices, are seductive.
