B is for Bánánach

B is for  Bánánach

 

The Bánánach is thought to either be a single entity or several. In ancient Irish legends, they are supernatural females that haunt battlefields. Some believe they were female demons or fairies, but not the good kind.

They are compared to Banshee or even Valkyries.

To see any of the creatures on the battlefield, meant doom and death.
