Species: banshee
.
Lady O’Rourke hails from Ireland and carries with her a rather sad and depressing story. Over a century ago a tragedy befell her family when her father's farm was overrun by some fleeing bank robbers. Upon their arrival, her parents hid her away under the stairs and told her to be quiet. The robbers slowly and systematically murdered her entire family while 11-year-old Ann O’Rourke watched and sobbed from a crack in the woodwork. Hours passed before the robbers left, but unfortunately for Ann, her mother’s corpse held the key to unlock the stairwell. After a few days of wailing and crying hysterically, Ann O’Rourke perished. The great turmoil she suffered as a mortal manifested itself in her spirit, allowing her to come back to the plane of mortals as a banshee. Destined to never be alone, she took solace in finding a human companion to always be at her side. Anytime anything bad is about to happen, Lary O’Rourke’s companion is warned by audible crying or keening that only they can hear. This helps them to avoid dangerous situations or know when something bad, like a death in the family, is about to happen. The severity of the danger or bad news is displayed by how loud or frantic her crying is.

Note: please keep in mind that the crying may be heard by mystical ears OR through physical means such as continuous and obvious crying of babies around you (other than your own), commercials with crying, etc.. Not ALL crying will be a sign, you will have to work with her to learn her language.
