The Hegh'bat is a Klingon ceremony where the warrior commits ritual suicide. This is done with the help of the eldest son or the closest friend of the warrior. The secondary participant must bring a special knife, which the warrior uses to stab himself in the heart. The helper then removes the blade from the body and wipes its blood on himself, for the ritual to be completed. (TNG episode: "Ethics")
