Incorporeal undead

From PathfinderWiki
A banshee is an incorporeal undead creature.

Incorporeal undead are one of the four major types of undead.[1] This type of undead is the closest linked to the Negative Energy Plane, where the core of their being resides. This causes the incorporeal undead to seem intangible when encountered on the Material Plane. Examples of this type of undead are ghosts, spectres and banshees.[2][3]
