When night falls, unlucky travelers hear the faint cries of the forlorn dead. This woeful spirit is a banshee, a spiteful creature formed from the spirit of a female mortal. Banshees appear as luminous, wispy forms that vaguely recall their features from life. A banshee’s face is wreathed in a wild tangle of hair, its body clad in wispy rags that flutter and stream around it.
Beauty Hoarders: The vanity that inspired the banshee’s cursed creation persists in undeath. These creatures covet beautiful objects: fine jewelry, paintings, statues, and other objects of art. At the same time, a banshee abhors any mirrored surface, for it can’t bear to see the horror of its own existence. A single glimpse of itself is enough to send it into a rage.
Undead Nature: A banshee doesn’t require air, food, drink, or sleep.
Known Weaknesses: Radiant damage, Magic Circles, Positoxins.
Methods of Attack: The banshee prefers get up close and personal, where its horrifying visage has a chance to frighten her enemies. Once they begin to flee, she lets out a terrifying wail that has a significant chance to end their life on its own. If the banshee manages to kill her foes she pursues the remaining attacking with a corporeal dagger.
Methods of Successful Vanquishing: None discovered.
