Single word to change groups

In a table top RPG there exists a spell which forces the target to do what is commanded but the word count available is one. For example, “Rampage” would cause the target to see everyone as a foe. Also, “Cower” causes the target to go into the fetal position.

I am looking to turn one target into my personal bodyguard, or ally with a single word. In the example “Attack” would not work because it would require a second word as a target, like “Attack them” or “Attack humans”.

Is there a single word that effectively states a “180 degree change in view” (morally) or to state “your enemies are my enemies”?


Defect! might work:

1 : to forsake one cause, party, or nation for another often because of a change in ideology
// a former KGB agent who defected to America

(source: Merriam-Webster)

and another verb which conveys the same idea is to renegade:

: to become a renegade (a deserter from one faith, cause, or allegiance to another)

(source: Merriam-Webster)

but I’m not sure if this can actually be used in imperative form.

Of course, your Game Master is free to have the enemy interpret either option as taking the sides of another (third) party.
