• Molog Bal, Daedric Prince of Destruction, created the vampires. But the disease is named Sanguinaire Vampiris, after Sanguine, who is the Daedric prince of debauchery and dark indulgences. Why would it be named after him?

    • It isn't, since "sanguine" actually comes from a latin word that means "blood" (or blood-red).

    • Maybe its because vampirism spreads merriment to the world?

    • Molag Bal is the Daedric Prince of Domination, not destruction.

      And sanguine does mean the red colour of blod so Kiadony may be right.

    • I am gueesing it has something to do with the Literacy/Literature within Skyrim. Remember, She was part of the Imperial Empire, which uses the Latin language, which is why many words may be influenced by it all across Skyrim. 

      Tbh if you ask me, Latin Language is pretty much the Lingua Franca in the Skyrim game (well except your convos with your fellow dragon-related buds like Greybeards, Parthuumax and Alduin, who partially uses Dragon Language when speaking to you). I don't know about the other sagas though like Morrowind.

    • Hemophilia probably referred to the actual, real-life condition, which comes to mind way faster for most people than its etymology. However, hemophilia is a disorder which prevents blood clotting, which actually doesn't make more sense because vampires don't bleed to begin with. It's cooler, I agree, but Jesus Christ if you're going to complain that they changed it, do it coherently (yes, I know you were proving a point).

    • Sang is blood in French. Sanguinare is the verb To Bleed in Italian.
