It takes more than a song, Biology counters. Zelma has DNA, millions of neural pathways and a vast array of chemical reactions inside her brain that make up her personali﬚. Zelma has no choice but to be a ba﬙leground of conflicts between the Mythology Sirens and Biology as she struggles to find her own ground.
