Today's creature is the Banshee. A creature from Celtic mythology, Banshee is an Irish word that means "the woman of the Sidhe" or fairy world. The Banshee is a female messenger spirit and an omen of death.
Usually dressed in white or gray robes, the Banshee is most known for its wailing and cries. Its wail can shatter glass. Banshees will appear to announce the the coming of a death, sometimes of the person that sees the Banshee, sometimes of a family memeber.
I wrote a short story about a Banshee, still trying to find a home for it.
If you could know that your death was coming, would you want to know? Would you want to be visited be a Banshee?
