My dear brother, you shall not die today. I will fight alongside you.
You restore a creature capable of being revived by raise dead back to life, full health, and restoring any ability damage with no other penalties from dying. As part of it you physically and spiritually bond with the creature, becoming a wraith-like figure upon their back. You no longer are able to move on your own, tied to the ally, but may still perform other actions and cast spells. While bound, you may freely transfer your hp to your revived ally as a non-action, but the same is not true in reverse.
If they die again you may cast this spell again to restore them with you already being bound upon their back.
While you are upon their back, you and the ally cannot be flanked. You can be targeted by attacks, but cannot actually die until your ally also dies. This lasts for 24 hours after which the bond is separated and you are both left at 1 hp or your own hp, whichever is less.
Focus: Two rings, each worth 2500 gp, given to the caster and their target.
