In Scottish legends, the Baobhan Sith (also known as the White Woman of the Highlands) is said to be a vampiric ghost in the form of a beautiful woman who would lure men to dance with her. During the course of the dancing, the Baobhan Sith would then drink the blood from her victim.

Well, we already know it's so like Square to pepper us with various mythological entities from world-wide legend and lore.

The Baobhan Sith (pronounced [/i]bavaan shee[i]) is a Scottish fairy that disguises itself as a beautiful young maiden. It lures men to dance with them, then drinks their blood--in essence, the baobhan sith is the Scottish version of the vampire.

One legend goes that a group of three or four young men were camping in the Scottish highlands when three young girls approached their camp. The men invited the girls to sit by their fire and share in their food and drink--one of the men brought out a small fiddle and began to play. The girls began to dance, and the men with them, until they had worked themselves up into quite a frenzy. The young man with the fiddle ceased playing when his friends' laughter turned to screams, and ran to a nearby barn where horses were being kept and hid himself. The "girls" came looking for him, but couldn't get close to him due to the iron of the horseshoes, and by daybreak they were gone. The fiddler returned to his camp to find the blanched corpses of his friends, completely drained of all their blood.

Figured I'd throw that out there--rate me up if you enjoyed my babbling, lol. ^.^'

Ran into this guy yesterday when we went with a party to kill the Evisceration NM. I got him up on widescan. We had a decent pt of 6, but the PLD had to leave, but we thought we would give it a shot anyway and let Carrie try to tank. BAD idea! I pulled him from I-6 on the 2nd Gustav Tunnel Map to the area where the Evisceration NM spawns. He immediately cast Blizzaga IV and wiped out Carrie before he got to our camp. I Called another Carrie and let her get hate. Then he used Bane, and before we could get Curse off, he starts casting Blizzaga IV again! Jesus. Someone must have really pissed him off before we got there! Fortunately our WHM was on top of things and he was already casting Teleport-Dem. Our BRD died unfortunately. Since a 75 RDM can solo, I am assuming we just had some bad luck with the spells he cast that day, but things definitely got ugly REAL fast in there.

It's going to look like any other given ghost-type creature (Bogy, Banshee, etc.), so don't get your hopes up.
