Description: Banshees look like human women, often with delicate features reminiscent of the traditional description of fairies. Most banshees appear as either beautiful young women or decrepit old crones, but appearances between these two extremes are also possible. A banshee can alter her apparent age, but no matter what age the banshee appears to be, she still looks like the same person, just at a different stage of life. Banshees traditionally have long hair and wear simple, usually white, gowns but this is by no means universal.
