A variety of oaths surface in the story. Although they are all interrelated, each type of oath is on a different scale, based on the intent of the person at the time of the swearing.
- The lightest type of oath is a simple promise, and attaches only to the conscious self-awareness of a non-mage-trained person. Whether they are kept or not is a matter of sincerity, integrity, and strength of character.
- Oaths sworn upon a spell crystal can carry energy outside of time and space, even extending beyond the veil. An oath sworn over a crystal in the frequency pattern that is Athera's living matrix would form a binding on another level.
- A blood oath tied to an individual tags that person across space and time, invoking their Name, and is revokable only by the Truer self.
