The Oath of the Dagger and the Flame is a sacred ritual oath. Those taking the oath swear their intent by lighting a candle and pricking their wrists with a dagger. The participants grip each other's hands in a circle around the candle and speak words of affirmation while letting their blood drip onto the flame until it is extinguished. As a blood oath it is considered unbreakable. Ascalante and his fellow conspirators took this oath when they vowed to overthrow Kull.[1]
