[It] hits the body hard, like drinking a quart of alcohol, then eradicates the immune system.
Rupert Giles[src]

Bloodstone vengeance spell was a spell meant to destroy an enemy. Initial symptoms were similar to the ingestion a large amount of alcohol, including euphoria and diminished motor coordination. Over the course of the next few hours, it slowly eradicated the target's immune system. Once the spell has reached the critical point, it took two to three hours before it killed the victim.[1]


In 1996, Catherine used the Bloodstone vengeance spell in an attempt to kill Buffy and eliminate the competition for the Sunnydale High cheerleading squad. However, Giles undid it in time with a spell that reverted all the witch's spells.[1]


The spell required an object belonging to the target. Catherine used the bracelet Xander had given Buffy for good luck in the cheerleading try-outs.[1]
