A banshee is a female spirit or fairy woman who comes to the dying. She is seen as an omen of death or a messenger from the afterlife. However, a male counterpart does not exist.

Examples of Banshees

Video Games

  • In the Fable games, Banshees are frequently depicted as souls of women who fell into dark stages of their life and were never able to free themselves. They attempt to lower the self-confidence of others through screaming the bitterness of one's past.[1]
