Banshee by White-Starcloud Banshee by White-Starcloud

The banshee (or banchee) is a female spirit in Irish mythology, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the underworld.
In legend, a banshee is a fairy woman who begins to wail if someone is about to die. In Scottish Gaelic mythology, she is known as the
bean sìth or bean nighe and is seen washing the bloodstained clothes or armour of those who are about to die.
Banshees are frequently described as dressed in white or grey, often having long, pale hair which they brush with a silver comb.
