sanguine rose


I redesigned sanguine again ‘cause he was starting to look too much like a child with my other design. I kinda wanted to link his Breton appearance to one of his Daedric ones. I only did minor tweaks to his rose because honestly i like it as is and it’s meant to be a living rose anyway.

I feel his appearance would vary depending on the individual looking at him and on what form he presents himself as, creating an almost irresistible illusion for the viewer, making his task of tempting them easier. If he shows himself at all that is. He’d probably only go through all that effort for either a mortal he deems worthy, or if he is really bored.

I dunno see it as a bit of head-canon.


Sanguine is the Daedric Prince of debauchery. He is often seen with some kind of alchohol in his hand, pranking, shapeshifting and humiliating other mortals. One example being a spell that removes all clothing of everyone in range.
Sanguine likes to drag mortal people down a sinful road, trough greed, humiliation and manipulation.

Every now and then when I use the Sanguine Rose to summon a Dremora he sticks around for a bit after the enemies are all dead and I forgot he’s there.

So there’s been a few times when I turn around expecting to see my follower only to see a big red Dremora there instead, and basically have this reaction:

I also like to imagine it’s the same Dremora each time. I call him Bob.


Modern!Daedric Princes aesthetics [2/3]

Malacath. If you try to ask around about him the answer you will have is always the same: everyone describes him as an evil backstabber. And that is a perfect description for this young man. If you had some kind of deal with this famous criminal, you are, right now, probably dead or in jail. In his life till now and on, Malacath always got himself in much trouble not wanting to respect rules and fucking shit up with police and whole universe in general. He traveled around the world so much that he knows everything about it, he also earned a small group of followers that support him for his (careless) revolutionary attitude. Malacath seems to enjoy watching people fighting one another but he is genuinely caring towards his followers.

Boethiah. If you care about your life and your sanity, please don’t fuck with Boethiah and her cult. Yes because this badass girl have her own very personal group of followers that consider her as their terrible and powerful Queen. Boethiah loves secrets, conspiracies and telling lies. These are her cult foundation. Many describes her as unreliable because she is considered the master of treachery–it’s said that for enter the cult you must kill someone that have faith in you and then offer their blood to her, but no one believes this–. Boethiah is in constant rivality with Molag Bal and his gang, often flowing in some small “wars”. They can’t stand each other and they both want to steal territory to the other.

Azura. Everyone in town loves her. No one knows why, maybe it’s her gentle attitude, her merciful and benevolent character or maybe because everyone prefers her to her sister Nocturnal, same age but completely different person. Azura is like day and night: her good personality is different from the wrathful one. Yes, she is admired by many but she is also feared. People know where their place is around her because if she get’s angry the consequences are going to be really painful. Azura dreams of the perfect place in which she wants live, loves to daydream about it: she called it Moonshadow. Blurred colors, cities of silver and air like perfume for a combination of pure paradise.

Mehrunes Dagon. Brother of Molag Bal this guy hates everything of our world. There isn’t a single thing he appreciate about this life; he refers to people calling them “mortals” and saying that he isn’t one of them, he is more, he is a God. Obviously everyone hates and laughs of Mehrunes Dagon…they just don’t do that in front of him. He is a really ambitious man as he is violent and dangerous. Mehrunes Dagon is destruction himself and you better start run if you find yourself around him. He wants to destroy this world and make it a “Deadlands”–as he says–but looks like he is having a hard time making his dream come true because of some asshole–again, as he says–that people call “Hero of Kvatch”, name born after he saved the city of Kvatch.

Sanguine. The bad friend that drags you in stupid stuff, the troublemaker. This is what Sanguine is. All the seven deadly sins–and more–are grouped in this single man. He is a sinner and his only purpose in life is have fun and push out the darker natures of men. He also loves pranks even if, most of the time, are terrible and everyone fakes their laughter just for fear. Sanguine turns people normal life into a more sinful one by means of temptation, making them feel hungry for more and more unholy actions and pleasures. The ones that adopt this lifestyle are usually seen with a rose in the buttonhole that took the name of “Sanguine Rose”. Instead Sanguine it’s always seen with a bottle of wine or beer in both hands or with some girl…or boy.

Peryite. Underappreciated and always left behind, Peryite is a loner and, after so much time, he accepted this situation. Many makes jokes about him and he is usually considered weak by the others also is social skills aren’t the best so he just hang out with a guy–probably paid for stick with him–and a girl–probably his cousin–. He acts like he doesn’t care about loneliness but cries a lot if left alone. He wants to keep everything in order, not that he likes it personally but his parents raised him in that way so he just adapted. Many says that a beautiful friendship could born between him and Jyggalag but Peryite keeps saying that “Jyggalag’s vision of order is unnatural and rigid” and he doesn’t want to hang out with crazy people. Everyone laughs at this (and of him). He have a dragon tattoo somewhere on his body. He have some weird aesthetic feeling with smoke. He tries to look tough but he is just in need of love. He still lives in his parents house.

I never thought playing a mage would be so fun, I never fight I just have everything I summon fight for me and in my head I’m giving all the things I summon little personalities and having them walk alongside me like friends. 

So far we have:

  • My Flame Antronach, who was my very first atronach I learned to summon by myself. I like to think my Skyrim-self treated them very nice because they were overcome with how pretty she was. She probably stuck around for this little mortal always being so happy to see them. 
  • My Dremora from Sanguines Rose, who is just always ready for a hearty fight. They don’t know their own strength or weaknessess sometimes, and can jump into situations without thinking. But I do that too! That’s how we bonded. We got our asses kicked and laughed about it over a drink. 
  • And then my Frost Antronach, who came from a staff that I forget where I found it. He was not someone I thought I would summon, but at a last resort when I thought I was going to die, I summoned this big fella and he ended up being the most helpful companion I could rely on. I thought it was really sweet they always got right back over to me after fighting (I know all companions tend to, but like, this one always like RUSHED. It was like watching this big ice block come back over like “HUMAN, ARE YOU OKAY” “YOU DO NOT HAVE MUSCLES MADE FROM PURE OBLIVION ICE LIKE I DO” “MORTAL YOU LOOK HURT LET ME HELP” like I feel in love with this giant ice cube and they’re mine now I love them.
