Banshee/Baen Sidhe

Banshee1
Banshee – AI Generated Artwork – NightCafe Creator

The Banshee  is a female spirit  seen as an omen of death and a messenger from The Otherworld.

A thin, faint woman appears before you. Night-black feathered wings emerge from her back. Her eyes are puffy and red, her form gaunt. She has ruffled red hair that streams down her back, which she slowly works with a silver comb. She wears a green slip under a grey mantle. She opens her small mouth and unleases a terribly piercing, mournful song.

Banshees in history, mythology and folklore

Traditionally, when a citizen of an Irish village died, a woman would sing a lament at their funeral. These women singers are sometimes referred to as “keeners”. Legend has it that, for five great Gaelic families: the O’Gradys, the O’Neills, the O’Briens, the O’Connors, and the Kavanaghs, the lament would be sung by a fairy woman; having foresight, she would appear before the death and keen. When several banshees appeared at once, it indicated the death of someone great . The tales sometimes recounted that the woman, though called a fairy, was a ghost, often of a specific murdered woman, or a woman who died in childbirth.

Banshees are frequently described as dressed in white or grey, and often having long, fair hair which they brush with a silver comb. Other stories portray banshees as dressed in green, red or black with a grey cloak.

The banshee wails around a house if someone is about to die.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Curse (Su) A creature struck by a baen sĂ­dhe’s wings must succeed on a Will save (DC 25) or be cursed as per bestow curse. The save DC is Charisma-based.  

Death Sense (Su) A baen sĂ­dhe can predict the death of any living creature. In order to use this ability, the baen sĂ­dhe must be aware of the subject or have him identified for it unambiguously and then choose him as a subject of this ability. A baen sĂ­dhe can have up to one subject as a focus of this ability per racial Hit Die it possesses. Each day at sunset, the baen sĂ­dhe becomes aware of all subjects which will die within the next week as if it had asked for their time of death with divination (caster level 18th). The baen sĂ­dhe can predict the deaths of any living thing within 30 feet of it without selecting them as subjects. Changing subjects is a free action. A baen sĂ­dhe cannot predict its own death or that of another baen sĂ­dhe. Often, Unseelie Faerie Lords will keep baen sĂ­dhe on retainer to watch their favorite servants.
When a subject will die within 24 hours, the baen sĂ­dhe can constantly detect which plane he is on. If he is on the same plane as the baen sĂ­dhe, it can pinpoint him from any distance as if with Blindsense.

Additionally, a baen sĂ­dhe can detect all creatures within 30 feet that will die in the next 24 hours, locating them as if with Blindsense. A baen sĂ­dhe can’t predict the deaths of elementals or outsiders.

Incorporeal Form (Su) A baen sĂ­dhe can become incorporeal as a move action, along with any objects it may be wearing or carrying. Ending this effect is a free action. While incorporeal, the baen sĂ­dhe loses its land speed, natural armor bonus, and wing attacks. Simultaneously, it may choose to become invisible as per greater invisibility, or cease its invisibility, as a free action.

A baen sĂ­dhe that loses its comb loses its incorporeal form ability.

Keening (Su) A baen sĂ­dhe can begin singing a haunting dirge as a standard action. It may maintain the dirge for up to eight hours. A baen sĂ­dhe may still take other actions while it sings, but it may not cast spells with verbal components, activate word-activated or spell completion magic items, or use its wail or other verbal special abilities. The keening can be heard up to 1 mile away, but only has an effect on creatures within 200 feet. When a living creature first hears the keening, he must succeed on a Will save (DC 27) or become shaken and suffer despair that causes a -2 penalty on all attacks rolls, saving throws, ability checks, skill checks, and weapon damage rolls for as long as the baen sĂ­dhe can be heard or seen and for 1 hour after that. A victim which fails his save has all his magical protections against death (such as death ward) targeted by an effect identical to greater dispel magic at caster level 18th. A new save is required each round that the baen sĂ­dhe can be heard, and those that fail multiple saves become progressively more scared. If it desires, a baen sĂ­dhe can keen without causing fear and despair. Keening is a sonic effect; the despair and fear are mind-affecting. The save DC is Charisma-based, and includes a +2 bonus from Ability Focus.

Negative Energy Infusion (Ex) A creature struck by a baen sĂ­dhe’s wing attack is infused with negative energy, suffering 2d8 damage modified by the baen sĂ­dhe’s Constitution modifier.

Regeneration (Ex) A baen sĂ­dhe suffers normal damage only from spells or effects with the light descriptor, and from weapons affected by such spells or effects. A baen sĂ­dhe cannot regrow lost body parts. It can reattach a severed member instantly by holding the lost part to the stump.

Spectral Presence (Ex) A baen sĂ­dhe’s natural armor and natural weapons function normally against incorporeal foes as if they had the ghost touch property. A baen sĂ­dhe can perceive disembodied souls and incorporeal creatures with all its senses normally and interact physically with them.
Susceptibility to Light (Ex) Unlike most deathless, a baen sĂ­dhe is more vulnerable to light than most living things. It suffers damage from light spells and effects such as sunbeam as if it were an undead creature.

Unearthly Grace (Su) A baen sĂ­dhe adds its Charisma bonus to its saving throws and as a deflection bonus to Armor Class.

Wail (Su) As a standard action, a baen sĂ­dhe can unleash a terrible wail. All living things (creatures and objects) within 30-foot radius or a 60-foot cone must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 25) or die (nonmagical living objects automatically fail). The baen sĂ­dhe may choose for any number of creatures or objects to be immune to this effect; most baen sĂ­dhe are careful to kill no more living things than necessary. This is a sonic death effect. Once a baen sĂ­dhe wails, it cannot do so again for 1d4 rounds.

The wail is audible up to 1 mile away. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Wisdom Damage (Su)
A creature struck by a baen sĂ­dhe’s wing attack suffers 1d8 points of Wisdom damage, or 2d8 points on a critical hit. The baen sĂ­dhe gains 5 temporary hit points every time it uses this ability, or 10 on a critical hit.

Skills A baen sĂ­dhe has a +4 racial bonus on Knowledge (nature) checks.

_____________________________________________________________

MOURNER’S COMB

All baen sĂ­dhe carry special combs. As long as it is worn in the hair (occupying space as a magic helm), a mourner’s comb provides a +5 luck bonus on Armor Class. This bonus has been factored into the statistics above. A baen sĂ­dhe that loses its comb cannot use its incorporeal form special ability until it manufactures another, which takes a month. For a creature other than a baen sĂ­dhe, this bonus lasts for only twenty uses (each attack the bonus applies against counts as a use), at which point the comb disintegrates.

A mourner’s comb can only be crafted by a baen sĂ­dhe. No baen sĂ­dhe will ever give its comb to a mortal, and any baen sĂ­dhe that sees a mortal wearing a mourner’s comb will attack on sight.

_____________________________________________________________

STRATEGY AND TACTICS

A baen sĂ­dhe is quick to anger if it thinks that someone is interfering with its duties. It will seek to scare them off first by keening (to induce fear as well as break and spells warding against death) while incorporeal and invisible. If that fails, it will usually move directly overhead to let loose a wail. It will then engage in melee to soften up the remaining obstacles before finishing them off with another wail.

Baen sĂ­dhe may appear alone or in broods of 3-5 members. A brood is usually dispatched by the Unseelie Court to punish particularly important offenders against nature, but also may escort exceptionally desirable souls to Faerie.

SAMPLE ENCOUNTER

A baen sĂ­dhe most often attacks parties when they get in the way of her duties. For instance, an elderly huntsman has lived a long life, and death is soon to take him. He doesn’t want to die because he loves the forest and is afraid to leave it untended, and he doesn’t know what kind of afterlife to expect since he has never worshipped anything but nature. He has heard a baen sĂ­dhe keening in the night, and he fears she is coming after him. He thinks she is an evil ghost, and asks the party to save him from her. He isn’t even aware that the fey have always been very fond of him and his superb care for the woodlands and want him to join the fey’s cycle of life.

EL 15: A single baen sĂ­dhe arrives in the night to take him.

EL 18: A brood of three baen sĂ­dhe come for him; the man’s soul is seen to have immense potential for some inscrutible reason.

ECOLOGY

A baen sĂ­dhe is most often created by the Queen of Air and Darkness. If a servant of hers nears death prematurely (from injury, magic, or any other source), the Queen remakes them as baen sĂ­dhe so that they may continue their service until it is their proper time to die. The Queen sometimes performs this service for her other subjects, if they please her and show willingness to sacrifice for the cause of the Unseelie.

Baen sĂ­dhe can mate and reproduce like any other fey, but they do so even less often than most Unseelie fey. They are so preoccupied with death that they rarely give any thought to life.

Environment: Baen sĂ­dhe can be found anywhere that death occurs, but they spend the majority of their time in Faerie participating in the activities of the Unseelie Court.

Typical Physical Characteristics: Baen sĂ­dhe normally stand about 5 feet tall and weigh 60 pounds. Since they age normally, they can appear as young, old, or in between. Their black wings are usually folded behind them. They usually only allow themselves to be seen on dark nights, when their black wings are nearly invisible. A baen sĂ­dhe may be of either gender, but the Queen of Air and Darkness primarily uses female servants and so there are more female baen sĂ­dhe than male.

Alignment: Baen sĂ­dhe have no predilection for any alignment, and so they are often neutral. They are rarely chaotic, though.

BAEN SĂŤDHE LORE

Characters with ranks in Knowledge (nature) can learn more about baen sĂ­dhe. When a character makes a successful skill check, the following lore is revealed, including the
information from lower DCs.

Knowledge (nature)
DCResults
25This is a baen sĂ­dhe, a fey spirit of death. Baen sĂ­dhe are famous for their ability to kill with a wail.
30A baen sĂ­dhe’s unnerving keening can break spells that protect against death.
35Like death itself, baen sĂ­dhe are strongly associated with darkness. They are vulnerable to harm from light-based spells and weapons enchanted with those spells.

SOCIETY

Baen sĂ­dhe are mortality incarnate. They understand every nuance of natural death and predict it. A person who is blessed by the fey will sometimes be aided by a baen sĂ­dhe – the baen sĂ­dhe may give a warning of impending death to allow him to prepare himself, and may try to soothe him into coming to peace with death. Obviously, a lot of mortals don’t take to kindly to finding out they’re soon to die, and folks are generally scared of death, so of course baen sĂ­dhe are much-feared. In addition to warning of death, a baen sĂ­dhe will also escort the souls of those mortals which belong to Faerie rather than the Realms Beyond.

Their keening is a song of mourning, and they are often truly sad to bring life to an end. The purpose of their fatal wail is to stop those who would deny death or who are otherwise gravely offending nature. Often, they act because they must, not because they enjoy it. Baen sĂ­dhe prefer to work at night because of its strong connection to death and because their death sensing powers operate most effectively at dusk.

A baen sĂ­dhe typically serves the Queen of Air and Darkness or another Unseelie lord. A few baen sĂ­dhe serve the Seelie Court and other courts to collect souls the other courts desire, a service the Queen trades to Titania and other rulers in exchange for other small favors.

TYPICAL TREASURE

A baen sĂ­dhe collects treasure as is normal for a monster of its Challenge Rating, typically having the equivalent of about 22,000 gp (which doesn’t include its comb). It usually keeps its treasure (except that which it can easily carry and finds useful) at the court of its Faerie Lord leige, however. Baen sĂ­dhe are particularly fond of collecting combs both magical and mundane.

An intact mourner’s comb has a market price of 18,750 gp, but a potential buyer that succeeds on a DC 25 Knowledge (nature) check can recognize the origin of the comb (and usually refuse to purchase it). A DC 30 Appraise check offers similar information. A person with 5 or more ranks in Knowledge (nature) gains a +2 synergy bonus on the Appraise check, and vice versa.

BAEN SĂŤDHE WITH CLASS LEVELS

The baen sĂ­dhe’s favored class is bard. Baen sĂ­dhe with class levels are also often druids, sorcerers, or sometimes clerics; they are among the very few fey who are clerics with any frequency. Those that are worship the Death aspect of the Great Cycle and have access to the fey, Oracle, and Repose domains.

ADVANCED BAEN SĂŤDHE

Baen sĂ­dhe advance by racial Hit Dice with age and experience. Baen sĂ­dhe can reach up to 36 Hit Dice. A baen sĂ­dhe’s regeneration is equal to two-thirds its racial Hit Dice, rounded down to the nearest 5.

Deathtouched Subtype: A deathtouched straddles the line between life and death, having some qualities of living creatures and undead.

Traits: A deathtouched has the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry).

  • Receives only minimum hit points per Hit Die.
  • Affected as both a living creature and an undead creature by spells and effects. If an effect causes different results for undead than for living creatures, the deathtouched is treated as whichever is more advantageous. However, if an effect works normally on either, or if it only works on one and not the other, the deathtouched is affected normally. For example, a deathtouched would suffer damage as a living creature, rather than an undead, from a sunburst spell, but can be turned or rebuked like an undead. A deathtouched is healed by both positive and negative energy, but regains only half as many hit points as normal from either.
  • Immunity to death effects, energy drain, exhaustion, fatigue, physical ability damage, poison, and sleep.
  • Not affected by raise dead and Reincarnate spells or abilities. resurrection and true resurrection restore the deathtouched to the form it had before its partial death.
  • Deathtouched do not eat, sleep, or breathe.
