A banshee is the restless spirit of an elf who was either betrayed by or who betrayed trusted friends in the moments before dying.12 Banshees despise the living, with some speculation that kinder mortals lead to even crueler banshees. This tragic end only motivates elves to both put the banshee to rest and right the wrongs that created it.2
