Game and Story Use

  • May be used as a characterization handle for dictating how a particular PC or NPC behaves.
  • In humorism, this personality type is associated with the Classical Element of Air, which might suggest ideas for any magic or powers the character might have.
    • Likewise, the association with blood may inspire a few ideas.
  • This is a useful persona for allied NPCs. Sanguine individuals make friends quickly, so you can justify the sudden transition from "total stranger" to "best friend" without having to do a lot of foot work. The PCs may not reciprocate the emotion, but that's not necessarily a big deal to the Sanguine as long as they're getting a little attention.
  • This personality is likely to do well in the royal court or similar environment where charisma and style are important.
