The banshee were once beautiful women, virtuous in every aspect but one - they sought constantly to stop the aging process and remain beautiful forever. Knowing that such superficial women could never truly be beautiful on the inside, the Guardian approached them in disguise, offering to make their inner beauty shine through for all eternity. They accepted the deal immediately.
Laughing, he watched as their flesh rotted away, leaving the hideous forms they would have for all time. Still dressed in their finest clothing, the banshee fled to the shadows in hopes of hiding their forms from all living creatures. There they remain, shrieking in shame and horror, emitting wails that can burst the heart of any living creature. However, any person who comes to investigate these cries is ripped to pieces, as banshees are loathe to allow any living creature to recount their horrid appearance. Having not learned from their original mistake, the banshees will ally only with powerful magicians who promise to return them to their original forms.
