The Desperate shows us that everything is currently as bad as it can get. He encourages us to recognise the hell we are in.
If you are looking for the most negative Servant, then The Desperate is it. When this Servant appears, it is a sign that you are going through an intense period of depression, sadness or hopelessness. Things feel about as bad as they possibly can be, and no end seems to be in sight.
You are feeling frustrated, angry, and hopeless- all at the same time. Nothing matters, no one cares, nothing ever works out, everything is pointless, and only the end of physical life seems like an escape – and even that isn’t a guarantee, as who knows if death is actually any better?
You have found yourself in a hole that you probably won’t be able to get out of by yourself. This is crisis time, and it must be taken seriously.
The Desperate suggests that unless you make significant changes in the direction you are headed, the future may become, or remain, quite bleak.
The Desperate is a servant of inner emotional turmoil. Your outward life circumstances may not appear to a casual onlooker to be anything that bad- it might even look good- but inside your head, you are in hell, and there is no escape.
The upside to this is that events can’t get any worse. This is as low and terrible as it gets. Life is cyclical, and nothing lasts forever. When you get to the other side of this initiation, you will be all the better for it and a much stronger person.
The function of The Desperate is to be in desperation. This is what he knows; this is all he experiences. You can give him all your distress, suffering, torment and pain. Give him all your misery, anguish, sorrow and sadness, and let him take it from you and use it to sustain himself. Let The Desperate take on the burden of your hardships, for hardship is all that he knows.
Love and healing can be sent to The Desperate as an embodiment of all the pain and suffering in the world and throughout history. Offerings made to The Desperate will aid all those enduring suffering and hardship.
The Desperate can be banished; you can place the sigil on a stone and throw it into the sea, or write the sigil on paper and burn or bury it.
Like The Depleted Servant, The Desperate also lends itself easily to curse work. Sending The Desperate to torture an enemy is very effective, but obviously, the responsibility will be yours if things go too far. This is the worst Servant of them all, the most horrible, the most vicious and the most severe. Use only if necessary.
