Banshee

(image)

Banshee are ancient ghosts in shape of weeping women. They wander through the ruins of ancient cities, mourning long forgotten tragedies. Anyone who hear their voice will die. Banshee are dangerous even when they haven't intention of killing, so they often killing people inadvertently. If banshee seriously intends to kill someone, she is almost unstoppable. Necromancers are looking for tame a banshee to obtain a reliable and powerful ally. In fact, banshee may be called same way as any other ghost, but there is too much risk, since tameless banshee kills its caller in four of the five cases.
