“Entreat me not to leave thee,
Or return from following after thee—
For whither thou goest, I will go,
And where thou lodgest, I will lodge.
Thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God.
Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried.
The Angel do so to me, and more also,
If aught but death part thee and me.”
~Parabatai Oath, Cassandra Clare
In the the Shadow World, there is no bond more sacred, revered, and treasured than the one between parabatai. They are closer than brothers and lovers, sworn to stand by each other, and make each other so much stronger when facing down a hard battle.

A simple yet totally unique gift for your special friend.
3. Parabatai Rune Friendship Necklace
You wear one half and she wears the other as a reminder of your eternal bond.
4. Parabatai Best Friend Keychain Set
This gorgeous keychain set can be personalized with your names for a truly meaningful memento.
5. My Parabatai is Better Than Yours Hoodie
Because it’s true. Simple as that.
