Could this be caused by a random event, or is it certain there's a Siren in the province? Not going to waste a turn patrolling if this is a one time event only.

Is this attack carried out as an assassination attempt? Those take place before any movement or patrolling, so if this is caused by a player, there isn't anything I can do to prevent it from happening again this turn

Do commanders get some kind of save to resist the attack?
Is it normal for this effect to be anonymous?

Most likely there is a siren in the province.

I´ve gotten sirens as commanders from random events, when playing land nations. Rather often, in fact. Patrol the province and pwn her.

If you are close to the enemy border you have the problem of them flying and being able to retreat, through.

The Lure can be resisted. It's probably against magic resistance, morale or both. If the commander is amphibious, he gets to fight the Siren, at least in some cases.

Even flying commanders can only retreat to neighbouring provinces. It's always good to mention that.
