User with this ability either is or can transform into a banshee (from Irish: bean sí, "woman of the barrows") a feminine spirit in Irish mythology, an omen of death and a messenger from the Otherworld who begins to wail if someone is about to die. Traditionally they are either faery-women or ghosts: often of a specific murdered woman, or a mother who died in childbirth.
Modern banshee tend to be more direct and are able to cause the death(s) they predict, either by lethal wail or direct attack.
