Belladonna is a Siren, not to be confused with a mermaid: mermaids don’t eat Sirens, they are a Siren’s favorite prey.

This fiery red-head is Viktor’s main foil, love interest, guide, and general Pain-in-the-ass. She is a true sea monster with the ability to take human form. In her true form, she has a shark tail, razor sharp talons with stinger cells in the finger tips (much like those found in jellyfish tentacles), and a literal ear-to-ear grin lined with multiple rows of needle teeth that is capable of crushing a man’s skull. When she can’t catch mermaids or sailors, sharks make a nice appetizer.

Belladonna is also a sea witch and can control the weather with her song. Her singing is NOT the hypnotic thing that lures men to their deaths; that is mermaid singing, and death is not what the mermaids intend, just an unfortunate risk. Not to say that Belle’s vocals can’t do damage to a human. She can scream at a frequency that will sonically lobotomize any human within hearing distance.

Despite her appearance, Belle is ancient. She has memories of visiting the Library at Alexandria before it was lost to fire and sea. Her purpose in going there was to better understand how her prey thinks.

If Viktor gives her one of his crew or prisoners as sacrifice/food, she can have visions that help him in his quest to locate the Sisters of Power.

Belladonna makes her first appearance in Blood Curse, the first book in the series.
