Sirens are a group of women with unbelievable powers. Maya is one of six, with Lilith from the first Borderlands being another. Maya's unique ability is Phaselocking, which traps enemies in an alternate dimension, rendering them immobile for a short while. Not all enemies can be Phaselocked, though, with those ones taking damage instead.
