Banshee's are a rare type of fairy, though unlike their winged cousins they are seen as omens of death. This is because a Banshee is not necessarily a race of it's own, rather they are deceased creatures that died in violent circumstances and cannot pass on to the next life, most typical is murder or suicide. They are stuck, unable to remember how they died. They are not ghosts though, they are like any other creature that may roam the world. No one is quite sure why some are chosen to become Banshee and other's not, there are plenty of violent deaths in the world so why are some considered more than another?
Many people think that these creatures are evil and cause death, however that is the opposite. A banshee is unable to kill, if they do than they would cease to exist in any way. In most cases they are simply content that they get a second chance at life, even if it was at the cost of them dying in the first place. Once someone becomes a Banshee anyone they may have had a connection with before they died loses all memory of that Banshee, unless they are of profound magic. The Banshee itself will also lose all memory of their life before their initial death, their new life beginning at the moment they came into existence.
Banshee have one trait that they all share, they are able to see when someone nearby is going to die. It is not something they are able control, more like a base instinct that is ingrained into their being. There is no explanation as to how or why they know but when a Banshee gets a premonition of someone about to die they will screech, though it is not something you might hear out of a horror movie. It is more of a sing-song tone, loud and piercing but not ugly. People have said that the scream of a Banshee is actually quite beautiful, albeit creepy and unnerving.
It is impossible to tell a Banshee apart from any other creature except for one detail: They will have a scar in the place that resulted in their death, even if they cannot remember how they died. For example, if someone was stabbed in the heart than they will have a scar of that. If they were burned alive, their skin would be scarred all over. If a Banshee has no scar than that simply means their cause of death resulted in no scarring, such as poisoning or being buried alive. Other than that a Banshee will look just like anyone else.
(Possible trigger) Though she can't remember Salia was the daughter of a wealthy CEO, she was a spoiled child who was naive to the dangers of the world. Salia had everything she could ever want and she knew just how to her her father to buy anything. She looked down on anyone who she thought was lower than her and didn't care if she hurt someone's feelings in the process. A rotten child with a rotten heart and unfortunately for Salia she was rotten to the wrong person.
While leaving a party one night Salia, who had a few too many drinks, hopped into the back of a cab. The driver attempted to speak to her but in normal Salia-fashion she began to rant at how poor people were stupid, that she could never imagine having to drive people around for a living. Instead of driving the girl home he knocked Salia out and drove her to the ocean where he had a beach house. For two days he tortured Salia until she screamed that she was a terrible person and deserved what was happening to her. She died when he attempted to remove her left eye, nicking an artery and causing her to bleed to death.
When Salia next awoke she was on the shore, she couldn't remember anything or anyone. She sat there for a long time, unsure about what she should do. After almost a full day the girl finally got up and wandered around, until eventually she came across a town named Bellamere. It wasn't long until she stumbled across Whitmore Boarding House and while looking around she came across a fancy old lady in a greenhouse. She was fascinated by the lady and the plant, but didn't disturb them and continued on. Later that night she went back to the greenhouse, Salia sat some distance away from all the plants and watched them, they were alive and she loved it.
She didn't realize that she had been there all night and when the old lady came she was startled. She began to speak very dramatically and Salia found it funny, laughing for the first time since she had awoken on the shore. She didn't know how it happened but somehow she ended up living at the boarding house, she spends a lot of her time admiring Madeleine's carnivorous plants and loves interacting with the other tenants.
✦ Salia has yet to have a premonition, she is afraid of thought of it happening at any moment.
✦ Unlike her past life, Salia cares about people no matter where they come from. However she still is quite sassy and can have quite the attitude.
✦ Loves Madeleine's carnivorous plants.
✦ Her skin will burn if she touches pure silver.
✦ An eyepatch over her left eye hides the gaping hole that used to be her eye.
✦ It was Madeleine who told Salia what she was and what her special talent was.
✦ Salia couldn't remember what her name was, one of the tenants offered the idea of Salia and she took it.
✦ She hates bugs of all kinds, the only one that is acceptable are ladybugs.
Technically, 35 - Died 13 years ago at the age of 22 ✦ Female ✦ Banshee
Five feet, 3 inches ✦ 134 Pounds
✦ Death Premonition - Like all Banshee, if someone nearby is going to die Salia will let out an enchanting screech. How long until that person dies depends on the Banshee, newer ones will know if someone will die that die while older Banshee's can predict someone deaths days in advance.
✦ Water Manipulation - Salia's family were very skilled at using water magic, herself included. She retained this magic after her death. Salia can control and move existing water molecules, this includes the basic stuff like water from a faucet or bath all the way down to the dew on a flower or water within the earth.
✦ Long Life Span - Salia doesn't know if she will age, so far she has showed no indication of doing so since she awoke as a Banshee. She hopes that his isn't true as she fears the thought of staying in the body of a 22 year old for however long she may live.
✦ Aquatic Affinity - Because of her ties to water magic and the fact that when she was killed her body was dumped in the ocean, Salia is able to communicate with aquatic creatures. As a type of fairy this is actually quite common, though she is limited to only aquatic creatures.
