Screamers are a type of enemy in Fable, Fable: The Lost Chapters and Fable Anniversary.


They resemble old hags with ragged cloaks and float in the air. Their only attack is a level one Drain Life Spell that takes a bit of your health. They are recognized by their screams and moaning faces. The best way to kill them is using a master or Legendary Weapon augmented with Fire and/or Silver Augmentations. Otherwise, attacks only do a fraction of their usual damage.

A brief description of screamers is given in the book "Creatures of Albion Book I":

Horrific entities caught in the netherworlds. Screamers have long struck fear into the population at night. They roam the land and are dangerous in their attacks.

In Fable: The Lost Chapters, the Snowspire Oracle further describes screamers:

These unfortunate beings were once men, Will users who dared to oppose Jack of Blades. They were cursed never to find rest except by torturing the souls of the dead and feeding on the lifeforce of the living. But their true nature is only hinted at in our reality. Their true power is in the Realm of Death, where souls must pass before reaching their place of torment or peace. Every person who dies in this world must escape their screams before finding their own rest.



You first encounter them in Hook Coast where you see them continuously respawn during your fight with Maze. They also spawn during the Try to Stop Jack of Blades quest alongside minions and Undead.

Fable: The Lost Chapters and Fable AnniversaryEdit

The hero encounters an infestation of screamers if he chooses Collecting your Mother's Soul. After that quest or the alternative, they can sometimes be found in Lychfield Graveyard.


  • They resemble Ringwraiths from the Lord of the Rings.
