The Sanguine Host is a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter and a Successor Chapter of the Blood Angels, created during an unknown Founding.

Created as they were from the Blood Angels' gene-seed, they carry the genetic Flaw inherited from Sanguinius, which made them susceptible to the afflictions known as the Black Rage and the Red Thirst.

When a Battle-Brother falls to the throes of the Black Rage he is placed within the ranks of the Death Company.
