After the first sip of blood, the thrall begins to develop strong feelings for the regent, whether love or hate, though they are still free to act as they choose. Those in a one-drink bond may unconsciously seek out the regent, seemingly accidentally running into them on a frequent basis.
After the second sip, the regent becomes a very important person to the thrall, who may go out of their way to seek the regent's attention or please them. It becomes difficult for the thrall to do anything that would harm the regent, and the regent likewise finds it easier to convince the thrall of things. Though the thrall's craving for the regent's blood increases, they still retain their free-will.
After the third sip, the blood bond is complete. The thrall is now subject to the regent completely and loves them as much as they are capable of loving anyone. The regent is the most important person in the thrall's life and takes priority over all else; sufficiently weak-willed individuals will commit any act the regent asks of them.
A self inflicted curse perhaps, being blood bonded has a terrifying price, all kindred can be blood bonded and some are foolish enough to do it as a substitute for love, but the Tremere show such respect for their clan that they willingly come one step of being blood bonded to the seven elders of their clan. Not a curse of Cain but perhaps an even more powerful than any other kindred to have.
