Siren claims that singing the "antidote note" - three octaves above high C - would destroy her voice. However, the Siren is described as having a seven-octave range, with an upper range that only dogs can hear. Assuming her lowest note is at middle C (two octaves below high C, and about the average soprano's lower limit), the antidote note is only five octaves higher, and should be well within her ability without any damage to her voice.
