A Banshee

A Banshee is a reasonably rare demon with distinctive white hair, and a high-pitch scream that can burst glass and blood vessels, killing a mortal, or turn a witch pre-disposed to emotional pain into a Banshee. Witch powers are capable of vanquishing a Banshee, such as when Piper blew up a Banshee in "Look Who's Barking". The only way to revert a Banshee back into their previous witch self is for the being who caused the witch emotional pain to express clearly how they feel abut them and allow them to return back to normal, if a Banshee kills a person, then they become a Banshee permanently. In "Hell Hath No Fury", Phoebe described the Banshee as a demonic screamer, kind of trampy and feeds on pain.Edit


When a Banshee elevates her Call into a Scream, it does not kill a Witch, it zeros in on her pain and slowly turns her into a Banshee. The Book of Shadows has an entry on Banshees, and a "To Track a Banshee" spell, which will turn the volunteer into a dog, which can hear the high-pitched cry of the Banshee, outside of the human hearing range.Edit

Banshee entry

A Banshee

is a Demon who
wanders the earth
feeding on souls in
great pain. Hunting
only at night, this
Demon uses her voice
as a high pitched Call
to locate a victim, by
hearing the inner cry.
She does this by
zeroing in on the waves
of pain that emanate
from the stricken
A Banshee then
elevates her Call
into a Scream, so
powerful it kills
those she targets.

To Track a Banshee

The piercing cry
That feeds on pain
And leaves more
Sorrow than it gains
Shall now be heard
By one who seeks
To stop the havoc
That it wreaks
