Banshees are a type of monster that are female monsters that have a loud screaming wail and announce people's deaths. They are a type of ghost, as released in Haunted. In Monster High, they are a type of ghost, not a fay. Though they do bring out some traits of being "women of the mounds", however, as a banshee is a "woman of the mound" in Irish mythology, nothing says about them being ghosts. Although in Haunted, this is confirmed to be true—though this only exists in the Monster High franchise.
