Eyes: Unrevealed (no images showing her eyes closely, but if you blow up the image, they look dark...so, maybe brown)
Hair: Unrevealed (she wore a headpiece that completely covered her hair); her eyebrows were dark, if not black)

History:
skarlet-sirens-earth-691-2018-aa19-p14-pan2(
Amazing Adventures II#18 (fb) - BTS) - After largely conquering Earth around 2001 AD, the Martian Masters empowered some human women as Sirens, able to mesmerize men to help collect the remaining Freemen (those humans not enslaved by the Martian Masters).

(Amazing Adventures II#19 (fb) - BTS) - The Sirens broke the wills of countless Freemen who dared defy the Martian Masters.

(Amazing Adventures II#18 (fb) - BTS) - To avoid falling under the Sirens' spell, rebel Killraven learned to never look directly at them.

(Amazing Adventures II#18 - BTS) - A trio of Sirens confronted Killraven just outside Keeper (Dr. Raker)'s base in the former Grand Central Station; after he proved immune to their power, they fled

skarlet-sirens-earth-691-posteriorview(Amazing Adventures II#19 - BTS) - After Killraven and Freemen M'Shulla Scott and Hawk had destroyed a pair of Martian tripods and freed a cargo of arena slaves, one of the Martian Masters instructed its servant Professor Kempleton to send out a scout ship to investigate these rebels; if the scout learned what it suspected it would (that they were a true threat?), it would "be time for the Siren."

    When the scout reported that the rebels had burned a ferry Martian agents had been using to transport humans, Skarlet was notified, and a Martian agent (Kempleton?) reported that this assignment was now hers.

(Amazing Adventures II#19 (fb) - BTS) - The three Sirens who had previously encountered Killraven warned Skarlet that he might be trouble.

(Amazing Adventures II#19 (fb) - BTS) - Alongside a Martian tripod robot, Skarlet traveled to Killraven's Freemen's Staten Island base and used her powers to place its sentries and the rest of the Freemen in a deep trance.

(Amazing Adventures II#19) - After Killraven, M'Shulla Scott, and Hawk returned to their base, Skarlet placed the latter two in a trance as well.

    When Skarlet confronted Killraven and revealed this, he noted that he was immune to her power, but the tripod then bound Killraven in cables and captured him.

    Noting that her sisters had warned her of him, Skarlet told Killraven that the Masters wanted him alive, a living rebel for the games.

(Amazing Adventures II#19 - BTS) - The tripod robot carried Killraven to the Arena, the former Madison Square Garden.

    Ultimately, Killraven broke free and liberated his captured Freemen.

Comments: Created by Gerry Conway, Howard Chaykin, and Frank McLaughlin.
