'Sanguine' Meaning
'Sanguine' only means 'bloody' with reference to sanguine sketching chalk and then it was a simple reference to its coppery-red colour; see Leonardo Da Vinci's sketches for an example of what it looks like. Sanguine does not reference 'blood' or 'bloody' in the sense of temperamental violence or gore. Hey, but if that was the intention of the creators of the game then who am I to complain? I'll leave it in but it seems wrong to me.--Wangpangu 12:43, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
- It can also mean cheerful, carefree, or complacent. All of its meanings seem to be related to the Red Humors of blood.126.96.36.199 15:01, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
 Dark Brotherhood
IS there a reason that the dark brotherhood's Password to gain entry to the sanctuary is Sanguine??--VergilSparda 15:24, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
- Presumably because of its association with blood. See http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sanguine. rpeh •T•C•E• 14:59, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
- Ahh, I understand now --VergilSparda 22:08, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
I think that there should be something mentioned in the article about the password to the Dark Brotherhood sanctuary.
- "What is the color of the night?" "Sanguine, my brother."

 Sanguine don't exactly mean bloody
Sanguine is the ablative form of sanguis in Latin, which means blood. This form is used after ablative prepositions, which requires a definite article. For example, de sanguine = of the blood, a sanguine = from the blood, ad sanguinem = to a blood, color sanguinis = the blood's colour, etc. When it becomes an English word, it becomes the adjective for anything associated with blood. "Bloody" is an equivalent but bad thing is when you talk about bloody, it always goes to violence. No, sanguine doesn't have a sense of violence. It is simply about the association to blood in a simple manner. For example, the system in your body responsible to deliver blood, including your heart and all the pipes, is called the sanguine system, or the bloody system. I guess the Lore should be responsible to explain that this word doesn't have anything to do with violence. Besides, the password of the Dark Brotherhood should means, the colour of the night being brought from blood, or in bloody red. It is simply a depiction of violence already done, not to invoke more violence. --Joshua.yathin.yu 04:45, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
- Any etymology on the pages should be in the context of the TES universe. That is, we don't include the real-world origins of various words, only their history and/or connotations in the Elder Scrolls world. If the note currently on the page is a real-world interpretation of "sanguine", and not one derived from the Elder Scrolls media, it will be removed. Minor Edits 04:52, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
 Sanguine's gender
While even as far back as Daggerfall, Sanguine was almost universally depicted as male, the text at Daggerfall:Sanguine Rose uses the phrase "Sanguine herself". Is this text directly lifted from the game, or is it unique to this site? If it's in the game, I'd say that it should be mentioned on this page. If not, I'd say it's an error and should be fixed. Are there any other references that describe Sanguine as female? I know there's some ambiguity with some of the other Daedra, but Sanguine seems to be consistently referred to in the masculine with this one exception.

 Sanguine & King Olaf?
During the burning of King Olaf festival a priest named Rorlund says before it begins that "I believe Sanguine would be pleased with this festival". Is this because it shows that someone is being burned and that is something a deadra would do and so he is disapproving or does Sanguine have some history with King Olaf? --Nikolai5 (talk) 21:49, 6 January 2013 (GMT)
