All Gone:
There's a lot of pain in her past. A pain she's running from. She lost everything. Her whole family is gone. Technically, her father is still around but that isn't exactly a good thing. She doesn't really want to face the fact that everything is gone so instead she left her home to come and find something new. She wants new things, wants to enjoy new stuff, and wants to enjoy herself so she can forget her past and move forward.

Fiery Lass:
She's got spirit. In a way, that's a joke but it is true. She is the type to get in people's faces. She speaks her mind. She jumps in front of guns regardless if she knows she can take it or not. She is not one who can be idly sitting by when someone is doing something wrong. Either her body or her mouth will engage and someone will feel or hear about it.

Banshee Scream:
Perhaps her most powerful weapon is her scream. In a way, it is what produces her sound manipulation, but through the scream specifically she can create wide or precise blasts of sound capable of rattling even the most powerful of beings. Through this she could create a massive wail that can reach out in a cone of damage capable of blasting walls apart and destroying vehicles. She can also create a simple thin blast capable of piercing steel. This power does take its toll on her and she can't simple scream indefinitely without using up a great deal of stamina but it is a powerful tool.

Due to her magical nature, Siobhan can fly as the banshee. Her power of flight is fast enough that she can fly many times the speed of sound, and with practice, could be incredibly nimble while in the air. Only accessible while in banshee form.

Something about the curse that gave her this power has also made it possible for her to quickly understand the spoken language of anyone or anything she hears speak. Not just other sentient beings but animals as well. She only needs here someone speaking a new language for about fifteen to twenty seconds for the magic within her to pick it up and give her the full breadth of that language. She speaks it as if she knew it her whole life. This extends to animals as well in that, while they are still only animal intellect, she can understand the meaning of whatever sounds they make and in turn give back sounds that they'll understand. This power she has access to, whether she is in her banshee form or not.

Physical Attributes:
While in her banshee form, Siobhan is incredibly tough, strong, and fast.

Tough: She is tough enough to withstand blows from super powerful beings, tough enough that bulletes bounce off her form and even powerful lasers might only harm her, instead of simply vaporizing her. She is highly resistant to hot and cold and immune to all normal forms of poison or disease.

Strong: Her strength is incredible enough that a blow from her would give many supere powered beings pause. She is capable of easily lifting a full city bus or putting someone casually through a brick wall.

Speed: She is fast enough to dodge bullets, capable of keeping up with some of the most powerful warrior races in the universe, on par with the ability to keep pace with Amazons and Asgardians easiliy.

Stamina: Her stamina is fairly impressive though she can drain it quickly by using her more powerful techniques. She is, in just sheer physical terms, capable of moving and acting full out for well over an hour without slowing down as long as she doesn't unleash the full force of her banshee scream.

Healing Factor: If she is harmed, she can heal at a startling rate, capable of recovering from something akin to a bullet wound in under an hour or fixing a broken limb within a day or two.

Sound Manipulation:
As the Silver Banshee, she can manipulate sound to a level that might seem impossible. She doesn't just have to emit the sound, she can manipulate sounds from other sources. She can increase the volume of a sound or lower it, she can create spheres that sound can't enter or leave, use sound to try to deflect attacks, and use sound to whip up objects like vehicles and fling them at her opponents. She cna only access a rather minor version of this power while she is in her human form, needing to transform to access the full breadth.

Sound Resistance:
Due to her ability to manipulate sound, she is highly resistant to sound based attacks. It isn't impossible for a powerful enough sonic attack to harm her but it'd be very difficult to pull off.

She can seemingly evaporate and reappear at will, capable of moving short or long distances via teleportation. In a single instance, she could simply step to the other side of a wall or alternately reappear outside of the city. Frequent use of this power can be draining and it is possible for her to bring others with her. THe caveat to that is the more she brings with her, the far more quickly it can tire her out. Only accessible in banshee form.

Partially due to practice and partially due to her powers, Siobhan is an amazing singer and guitarist. She can feel the very notes as she plays them and can almost sense how to move her vocal chords or fingers in order to achieve what she wishes with the music.

Separate from music, she knows sounds. So many sounds. In a way this is a skill honed through her powers but she has spent much of her life with her curse. Denying it despite the fact that it dwells within her. She knows what a proper bird sounds like. What a fish swimming in water sounds like. She simply knows what sounds should sound like. So, while you can fool her nose, her eyes, and even her sense of is very difficult to fool her ears.

It isn't much but it is hers. It is in Queens and is a mess but it is all she can afford and it is hers.

She has a beautiful fender guitar that she loves. It was one of the last things her mother bought for her before she died. It means the world to her and while it is not the most expensive electric guitar in the world but it was a grand gift and something she loves mostly because who it is from but also because of what it allows her to do.


Click to expand.

She's scared of her own powers. She isn't even fully sure of all she can do with said powers. She is afraid that the powers will take over and she'll become more like her now dead father. She's afraid the banshee will take over. It is something that sometimes keeps her from acting as much as she might like.

She is cursed. This curse doesn't just give her powers, it gives her the banshee. This being that lives within her seems to be a mix of her anger and fear given life and brutal power. It wants her to give in to it. It wants her to become what it believes she was meant to be. It wants her to be the Silver Banshee full time. It wants to destroy, scream, kill, and terrorize. She hates it. It loves her. It is something she is always worried about and something that is always scratching at teh back of her mind. Worse when she uses her powers.

No, not all magic can simply harm her any better than any other attack but certain types of magic designed to attack ghosts or the like can be extra devestating or effective against her. She's still alive but the curse makes her into a banshee and as such, she is in a way, half-undead.

No Sound:
If someone were to place her in a vaccuum or use magic to shutdown all sound in an area, she could not access any of her powers related to her sound manipulation, scream, or even her flight which is at least to some degree based on her ability to manipulate sound.

Due to her avoiding her own powers and trying her best not to let the banshee out, she's very unfamiliar with her full capabilities. She can't even access some potential powers at all without her giving in to more of the banshee, which she has done her best to never do. So, even when she does take banshee form, she's basically just winging it. Just trying to do her best to make things happen.
