Much like Jiyuu II, Siren II is a Carbon Planet with a metallic core primarily comprised of iron encased by silicon carbide and titanium carbide. Mountains of diamonds and a surface of thick graphite covered with a rich hydrocarbon atmosphere. It was first discovered by the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet in YE 30. During the time the Siren System was under United Outer Colonies control, several small mining colonies were established. After the Yamatai Star Empire reassumed control in YE 33, more colonies were established. In YE 42, the Yugumo Corporation began to invest heavily in resource extraction in the system. Improvements were made to existing colonies and more were built. Sixteen active mining colonies, accounting for a population of roughly 6.9 million now dominate the planet.

There are many interesting places on Siren II.
Very strange Abominations inhabit this world. The Yugumo Corporation has determined they are a problem to local mining operations and have opened up hunting excursions to eliminate the pests. It is an adventure for the bold, a risky one too as these creatures often are violent and out of control.
The Sixteen active mining colonies all belong to the Yugumo Corporation and Ketsurui Zaibatsu, each colony has its own local culture and places to explore. They are not designed to be tourist destinations but they make good outposts to stop for supplies or base operations for claim pioneering.
