Book of Shadows > Season 3  
Title: 3x21 Look who's barking  
Creatures: 3x21 BansheeBanshees 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.

The banshee was killed by Piper.


to track a Banshee:

The piercing cry that feeds on pain, 
and leaves more sorrow than a gain, 
shall now be heard by one who seeks, 
to stop the havoc that it wreaks

This turns a person into a dog which can hear the screams
Once the Banshee is vanquished, the spell reverses itself
