Sanguina = Latin, sanguineus "of blood," also "bloody, bloodthirsty."

Notes

196 years is a long time to live - even for witches and wizards. Vampires are generally understood to be functionally immortal, so it can be inferred that Lady Carmilla Sanguina's time as a vampire is counts as part of her life and that her death occurs when her vampire self is destroyed. -BB
