The Hag of the Mist, known in Welsh as the Gwrach-y-Rhibyn or the Cyoeraeth, is a hag spirit in Welsh folklore, comparable to the Irish banshee. Like the banshee, the Hag of the Mist is portrayed as an ugly woman, whose shriek or cry is said to forewarn of misfortune or death.
If it is death that is coming, the name of the one doomed to die is supposed to be heard in her "shrill tenor". Often invisible, she can sometimes be seen at a crossroad or a stream when the mist rises.
