"Is it really so bad to feel pain? If I cut you here, would not that distract you from the pain in your heart? Your mind? If I said something terrible, would that not be better than physical pain? And, in giving you the choice of which I do, am I not subjecting you to a different kind of agony?"


A full-blooded Yokai Nocturne through and through, Sanguine is the Night Parade’s Head of Interrogations. Like most of the Yokai Nocturne within the clan, she takes pride in her work and enjoys picking apart the minds and emotions of others like her own personal playthings.

Sanguine was born into the original clan of Yokai Nocturne right in the heart of their wartorn era. She fit right into the hostile environment, though, her Shadow element giving her a cunning mind and a very self-serving sense of morality. She earned favor with Calligra the same way a corrupt politician would slither through the ranks, deceiving and backstabbing anyone who would deny her a chance to advance within the clan. This, of course, went noticed by Calligra, though instead of growing cautious towards or angry with her, he praised her ruthless betrayal and underhanded tactics as a true showing of Yokai Nocturne prowess. He assigned her to the coveted position of Head of Interrogations shortly after the clans merged, a role she settled into quite nicely, and fell suspiciously unambitious once she obtained it.

As the Head of Interrogations, Sanguine personally oversees the extraction of information from prisoners taken by the Night Parade’s scouts or vanguards. Generally, she and an assistant or two will pick apart a victim emotionally or psychologically, although she takes equal pleasure in physical forms of torture as well. Any information she obtains is sent to Amazon or Runic for recording, though she has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of every bit of information she has extracted due to its association with the pleasant experience of torturing the victim for it. Because she is so good at breaking victims down mentally, she is also tasked with maintaining the Tengu and other Talonok servants. Many of them serve as her torture assistants, and though she treats them very well once they have been corrupted with Shadow magic, the process is notoriously dubious. Not to mention that most Talonok naturally fear ther darker brethren.

On a personal level, Sanguine is no more innocent. Confident and seductive, she fits the definition of a femme fatale perfectly. She loves her job so much that she often spends her free time in the interrogation chambers, though when she isn’t tormenting someone or another she is typically out hunting for sport. She loves to keep familiars, and isn’t above training them to help her with her work. Many of the clan’s other dragons come to her for help bonding with their familiar, and she is happy to aid them, the more ornery the better. Many question if she and Calligra are truly a mated pair, though the way she coils around him like a jealous serpent in the presence of other females leaves little doubt.
