The Temptress archetype is defined as an unethical woman of immense provocative charm and wit, who utilizes men and leads them into treacherous situations. Temptresses include: sirens, femme fatales, and seductresses. Due to their beauty and manipulating ways, the temptress acts as a beguiling complication in the hero/protagonists journey. She is ultimately the cause of his downfall. A symbol for the temptress is the rose. This is because of the similarities between temptresses and roses: both are beautiful and influential, but they have some nasty thorns that they conceal. The word siren actually means "noise maker".
