Sanguine is one of the 13 fairies that I made up once upon a time (ha ha, no pun intended...ish) when I was a composing a (as of yet and probably perpetually) unfinished story about Sleeping Beauty. There's one for every month, plus one extra. They have all sorts of alliances and suchlike and are at war, and elemental, and all have weird names that are vaguely associated with their month names, function, or holidays therein. Sanguine is the fairy of October. "Sanguine" means "hopeful" and alternatively "blood red," referencing the Blood Moon of October. She is the oldest of all the fairies and pretty much in charge. She holds council with her two closest sisters Mellie (November), and Eurydice (December). In disputes with the more tempestuous fairies (such as Moira and Juniper), she is the voice of reason (and the only one they will listen to).
