Siren is a boss in Final Fantasy V. She tricks the party into letting their guard down, by impersonating Bartz's mother and King Tycoon, but her attempt to ensnare Galuf by impersonating Krile fails when Galuf cannot remember who Krile is due to his amnesia. As such, Galuf gets the other party members to snap out of their trances, and the Siren takes a more direct approach to taking care of the party.

Strategy

Siren can switch between Alive and Undead statuses at will. While Alive, Siren is weak to physical attacks, but elemental attacks prove to be ineffective. Have Knights attack her while your Black Mages defend. She will attack using Blizzard spells, while trying to put your party to Sleep and Silence them. She will also cast Haste on herself and try to cast Slow on your party. Most annoyingly, she will heal herself occasionally.

While Undead, Siren is immune to physical damage, but weak to magic, especially Fire. Despite her Undead status however, using a Phoenix Down on her will not kill her. Have Black Mages cast Fire spells on her while your Knights defend. If you have any White Mages, have them cast Cure spells on her too, since this will hurt her now. Siren will now physically attack your party for some heavy damage. She also has a Poison spell, so make sure those White Mages have Poisona. Although Siren is somewhat more dangerous while Undead, she is very vulnerable to Fire and over 100 damage can be dealt to her using the spell.

One odd thing is that she also has the Libra spell. Do not question it, just attack her while she wastes a turn.
