Lady Carmilla Sanguina (1561-1757) was a vampire. She believed that blood would retain her health and beauty, so she bathed in the blood of her victims.

Behind the scenes

  • Lady Sanguina may have been been inspired by Erzsébet Báthory, a 16th-century Hungarian countess who was accused of killing young women, then bathing in their blood.
  • Carmilla is a Gothic 19th-century novel written by Sheridan Lefanu and starring a female vampire with that name. The story has been adapted to cinema and comic-books, with the character (or similar characters with the same name) appearing in other franchises.
  • The surname Sanguina is derived from the Latin sanguineus, which means "of blood," "bloody," or "bloodthirsty."
