A Banshee is one of a number of types of powerful malignant spirits that haunt the Mortal Realms.[1a]


While there are many types of banshees, they do share some similar traits. Probably the most obvious is their feminine aspect, but most banshees also possess a unearthly howl or shriek born of their despair or anger that can shake the resolution of even the most stalwart soul.[1b][2d] Their long undeath drains banshees' spirits of sympathy, making them cruel and vengeful beings.[5a] The mere presence of a banshee can weaken living beings, both physically and mentally.[5b][5c]


There are also numerous examples of banshees of unspecified type, such as the spectral bridesmaids who swirl about Lady Olynder.[2a]
