Why is it charaid instead of caraid?

Because the friend is being addressed directly so the noun is in the vocative case.

There is a basic explanation of this in the Tips and Notes for the "Phrases" skill, the second one on the tree. It's gone into in more detail further down the tree in the notes for the "Names" skill.
