Banshees are former witches who turned into demons who feeds on souls and great pain. They are rare. They hunt for their victims with a high pitched call which is beyond human range to hear. The find their victims by hearing the inner cry by zeroing in on the waves of pain that emanate from the stricken, then their call turns into a scream that kills. They have an insatiable appetite for pain and feed every night. A Banshee’s scream doesn’t kill a witch but turns her into Banshees. If she kills just one person then, she stays a Banshee forever.

Actually the show got it wrong. they are spirits dediceted to families that when you hear a banshee wail its a sign that a family member is about to die. they are said to be seen combing there hair. I know this because a banshee is an Irish myth, and I'm Irish.
