MYTHOLOGY MEME ~ [3/8] Legendary Creatures ~ Banshee
The banshee (from Irish: bean sí “woman of the sídhe” or “woman of the fairy mounds”) is a female spirit in Irish mythology, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the Otherworld.
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 blood stained clothes or armour of those who are about to die. (x)
"No rest, no respite, till the shades descend;
Till darkness, or till death, shall cover all;
Let the war bleed, and let the might fall.”
—Homer, The Iliad
