Banshees are spirits who are messengers of the Underworld. They are also known as an omen of death when they appear to a person of full Irish descent. However, they are also powerful go-betweens for contacting spirits. They are highly volatile spirits meaning you never know when they'll be in a good or bad mood but you WILL NOT find any entity that can carry messages between you and the deceased faster and more accurately than an Banshee. They are unpredictable but loyal and are always quick and finely tuned to the unique spiritual energies of the supernatural world. They will give you precise and detailed messages from your ancestors, spirit guides and spirits in your spirit family. They usually manifest in apparition form and can sometimes be accompanied by a high-pitched sound or a fog of white mist.

Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Banshee is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality. If you feel it is becoming too strong the quickest and most effective way to subdue is to place the vessel of the Banshee near ground coffee. If the Banshee is bound to your spirit sit near the ground coffee yourself for at least an hour. Only use this technique if you feel the Banshee is becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.
