Lackadaisy Distemper
In Haitian Voodoo (and New Orleans Voodoo by extension), it's believed that a spirit may be invoked as a garde (or gad) for an individual through various ritualistic methods, sometimes involving branding or scarification.  Of course, it's generally a much more voluntary rite than Serafine seems to have made it here.
