Question Confusion about the Sirians

Hello guys, this is my first thread here =)

So I've been playing Serious Sam since the very first game in 2001, and I was always under the impression that the beheaded rocketeers, firecrackers and kamikazes were essentially Sirians. But lacking a head, obviously. Which would mean they look almost entirely human, same size, same look, everything. But in BFE's Karnak, we get the bracelet from this dead Sirian... and it looks *nothing* like the so-called beheaded Sirians. It's huge, and despite being humanoid, looks nothing like a human. So what's up with that? Is this a Croteam retcon? Or are the group known as "Sirians" actually two species commonly regarded as one faction, due to being from the same planet/star system? Maybe the big ones are the 'council' species, and the more 'human' Sirians are their muscle in battle.

Any ideas?

Hello and welcome!

Croteam hasn't explained that yet, so your guess is as good as ours. I hope this will be explained in the next Serious Sam game, but I like your idea about two species.

Maybe the more-alien-looking race was the race that supported Sirians and gave them the Timelock?

Those were the "Eillians", supposedly extinct eons before the Sirians were around. They were the ones who worshipped the "infinites", before "the one infinite" Mental wiped out the others. I'd be very surprised if any survived! But hey, why not.

I suspect he's a Sirian, though. Note how the statues and other artworks of the Sirians resemble the head of this creature. Unless, of course... the Sirians worshipped this surviving Eillian, the same way the Egyptians worshipped the Sirians!

But that may be taking this too far!

A very good question... It clearly says in the NETRICSA description that they are dead Sirian soldiers. So my guess is that:

A: It's a Croteam retcon and they wrote themselves into a corner

B: There is more than one species classified as "Sirian", perhaps "councilors" like the big mummy, and "soldiers" like the beheaded soldiers were
