Banshee design - Before designing the character I looked at a lot of old banshee stories and myths. The stories change depending on the origin of the story, some believe the Banshee to be a beautiful woman with a cry of sorrow that sounds almost musical. but then you have the stories on the banshee with an ear piercing scream who appears as an old woman. I've taken the latter as inspiration for the design however have thought of a way to incorporate the sad musical cry into the game play.
