Alyssa is the head of the Siren Sect of vampires. She attended the meeting of the vampires as an ally of Xarus, and allowedDracula to be murdered with no objections. However, she later had three of her sect seduce and try to kill Xarus. They failed, and Alyssa seemed to fall under Xarus's command. She saved the life of Janus by giving her one of the pendants, further calling her allegiances into question.
