The Shon-Kar is ritualized revenge. The oath is sealed in blood by cutting a scar across the forehead of the one who plans to carry out the Shon'Kar.

Even if it takes, a lifetime, the person taking the oath promises to carry out and kill those who are the target of the revenge.

The Shon-Kar blood oath was featured on episodes "Deathwalker" (Na'Toth's family swore a blood oath against Ja'Dur)  and "Sic Transit Vir" (Lyndisty targeted for killing Narn villagers).
