I rather fortunately had worked previously with the spirit known as Unsere in Daemonolatry circles, who is described as a daemoness connected with water, the earth and magic. In the course of working with Unsere, I discovered there are actually many called Unsere - Unsere in German meaning roughly 'All.' Does that mean that Unsere was then a legion similar to the Pomba Gira spirits or Klippoth? I have not investigated enough to state that emphatically. I was however swiftly introduced by the spirit who answered my calls to her name as Unsere La Siren. The 'All Siren' or 'Mother of All Siren.' While there are are similarities to the spirit known as La Siren, this is not the same spirit, nor should they be confused. I use a two sigil system when doing work with Unsere La Siren. The first sigil, one that the spirit gave me, the second the one supplied for Unsere by the daemonolatry source "The Complete Book of Daemonolatry" by S. Connolly.
As I hadn't worked with Unsere La Siren for a while, and even offerings had been on the infrequent side I first set about addressing her shrine. Her's was separated from the rest as there was no room in the ritual space since it was shared with my computer room. I'd been meaning to make the ritual space/ shrine space exclusively so for a while, but work has kept a lot of projects tabled. Well, tabled no longer, this project was getting done that minute!

The computer moved out, the shrines moved around to balance the energies of the room - in the end Naamah's and Unsere La Siren's shrines were the biggest winners, with honorable mention going to Pomba Gira's introductory shrine. Unsere La Siren basically moved out of the bedroom shrine and Naamah moved in. Both gained space and some art that's become associated with them for me. Shrines reestablished and complete I moved on toward calling Unsere La Siren.
Unsere La Siren it turns out came swiftly. Was it because I caught her notice with the upgraded shrine, or was it that she had been calling me first? I ought to here describe the spirit as she makes quite the stunning picture. Think of mermaid as a point of reference, maybe you've seen Daryl Hannah in the movie, "Splash" - well as lovely as she is the only comparison is that they are both 'mermaids'. Unsere La Siren has a white mane of hair, decorated with strands of Kelp woven through it. Chambered natilus shells decorate either side of her head like horns - in fact I'm not entirely sure that they aren't a part of her. Green eyes set in flawless pale white skin, her face sometimes seeming human, other times very alien. Her teeth are those of a shark and are quite terrifying yet fascinate the mind - perhaps fatally. The fish part of her is green and almost more snake-like and varies as either a one or two tailed appearance. Quite a different thing from what appears in our minds when we think mermaid or siren yes? Yet she is beautiful, the hypnotism of a deadly predator present in all it's primal glory. I asked if she was willing to step into a role as guardian, of which I explained the duties entailed and she readily agreed, and to my rather simple obligations to her. Her voice is liquid and hauntingly compelling. It's a voice you'd submerge yourself to follow, the most basic urge to even breath forgotten. Visions of the final moments of the movie Dagon naturally and irrepressibly bloom in the mind.
Now that I had Unsere La Siren's agreement to the oath, the wards were reestablished:
