Could go either way I think.

Example:

We are Humans

We are Human

They are Syreen

They are Syreens

Since the word Human and Syreen can be used as both plural and singular, the "s" sort of becomes a bit superfluous when used in an already plural context.

Hence, Syreen is probably better to use the Syreens, but Syreens is also acceptable to use.

>_>

<_<

Damn it I've turned into an english teacher!

You're more or less saying "Us and Them", however Syreen and Syreens have significantly different pronunciations the plural form is pronounced "sirens." Who cares anyway lets speak like orientals, makes life easier without worring about plural nouns/verbs and Articles don't exist ie. He go store or We are champion)
