In the ancient war between Orakio and Laya, Siren was one of Orakio's android generals. He was imprisoned on the moon Azura for 1000 years following the disappearance of his leader and enemy. For that entire time, he blamed Laya for this confinement. Plotting revenge and building an army of dangerous androids, the flame haired menace waits for a chance to strike back, never realizing that it was Orakio who sent him into exile to protect future generations.
Following in the footsteps pioneered by Phantasy Star II, Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom gave each playable character an individual head shot portrait to make them more recognizable to players. This was especially vital for this game, which tended to use the same set of graphics for several characters with slight color changes. Unlike the similar pictures of Nei and friends, however, these portraits were used for speech in important story scenes and the standard character menu. The previous game restricted the portrait availability to Rolf's house, but this one allowed the players to see the characters at any time they were available for play.
