A banshee is a female spirit in Irish mythology who heralds the death of a family member, usually by wailing, shrieking or keening.

Banshee - 02

"Bunworth Banshee" from Fairy Legends and Traditions of the South of Ireland, by Thomas Crofton Croker (1825).

Sometimes the banshee has long streaming hair and wears a gray cloak over a green dress, and her eyes are red from continual weeping, or she may be dressed in white with red hair and have a ghastly complexion. The majority of tales describe her to be of short stature, which often goes alongside the description of her as an old woman, although it may also be intended to emphasize her state as a fairy creature.

Sometimes the banshee assumes the form of some sweet singing virgin of the family who died young and has been given the mission to become the harbinger of coming doom to her mortal kindred; or she may be seen at night as a shrouded woman, crouched beneath the trees, lamenting with veiled face, or flying past in the moonlight, crying bitterly. The cry of this spirit is mournful beyond all other sounds on earth and betokens certain death to some member of the family whenever it is heard in the silence of the night.


The ghost of a mysterious dead woman who appears in the Monastery. She is easily noticeable as she suddenly materializes in the air, laughs, and then lets out a high pitched scream. She moves toward the player and within attacking range, she stops and lets out a scream which causes damage. In Hard Mode, she appears quicker.


The villager George will ask Shanoa to record a Banshee's scream for the quest "The Killing Scream". Shanoa needs to wait for her to use her scream attack, only then can she use the Phonograph to record her scream. Completing this quest will earn her both Record 4 and Record 6 available for purchase in Jacob's shop.
