A banshee, also called beann'shie, is a female spirit who cries on Saovine night, wailing a warning of those who will die. Banshees are not specifically malicious spirits, though meeting one is considered to be an omen of the worst kind.
Their appearance varies, though most often they're pale, thin women wearing grey vestments, with burning red eyes.

Bestiary entry[edit | edit source]
- Beann'shies howl and shriek, and if you hear their cry, you can know you’ll join the ranks of the dead that night.
– beggar from Dun Dâre
Old gossips claim beann'shies are the spirits of women stuck between life and death due to traumatic experiences. Their wails and howls are considered ill omens of imminent, inevitable death, though they are said not to attack the living themselves. Most often they appear in the form of pale, tear-streaked women with shriveled faces and wrinkled, corpse-like bodies.
