A blood oath of friendship is a ritual bonding of two people by blood which must be enacted by someone with initiate mastery. It is an unbreakable oath of protection with ties to the living spirit.

Arithon's Blood Oath to Asandir
In the aftermath of the Werpoint affair, Asandir flags down Arithon on the beaches of Athir and swears him to a blood oath to survive at all costs. This course of action is urged by Kharadmon who realized the threat posed by the Mistwraith still trapped on Marak.
|"Whatever atrocities its curse may bring to pass, to spare humanity, your birth-born talents must be preserved for the future. Who dies and who lives cannot be made to matter before necessity as broad scale as that."
Vhandon and Talvish's Blood Oath to Dakar
Arithon's Blood Oath to Jeynsa
As promised to Jieret, Arithon swears a blood oath to Jeynsa s'Valerient. Because of her hostility, Arithon goads her into an attack with a dagger to begin the ritual.
|Your self: as my own. Your breath: twined with mine. Two bodies: one flesh for this lifetime. Your spirit to my heart: bound unto death. Dharkaron as my dark witness, my Word as sealed by my Name in Ath's light, none to sunder. Yours to call, mine to answer, until the Wheel of Fate grants one of us crossing. Anient.
Jeynsa does not reciprocate on this oath, preventing Arithon from reaching out to her ethically when she is endangered at Alestron.
