Syphon Filter 3
According to Agency records, the Lorelei was documented as a vessel used by PHARCOM to transport biological weapon materials between its European labs and the Australian human testing facilities. It was loaded to the brim with a shipment of some form of the Syphon Filter virus and Gabe Logan, who was working with Maggie Powers from Military Intelligence 6, determined that the best way to destroy it was to plant a timed bomb that would scuttle it in the ocean. The ship was indeed sunk with all hands somewhere in the North Atlantic, but Mara Aramov somehow escaped from prison following her apprehension and was last seen operating a heavy minisub down to the wreckage.
Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain
During The Omega Strain, Dr. Nikolai Jandran found the destroyed ship and leased a deep sea salvage rig from the Icelandic Salvage Corporation in Reyjavik, Iceland in order to recover the samples of Syphon Filter.As such, Gabe Logan endeavoured to destroy the surviving shipments of Syphon Filter once and for all, despite Lian Xing's reservations. To this end an Agency team led by Lawrence Mujari was sent to deploy devastatingly powerful armour-defeating munitions on the rig's foundation. The operation was a success, but IPCA pilot William Crusher was killed in action while engaging some Meta Global copters, and Jandran also died from a serum that he was issued. The Lorelei was utterly vaporised by the nuclear explosion, and all the remnants of Syphon Filter were destroyed along with the ship.
- The vessel's name is a name of a rock headland on the Rhine River. Legends claim that a maiden named the Lorelei lives on the rock and lures fishermen to their death with her song.
