Wonderful Word Wednesday: Sanguinary

It's Wonderful Word Wednesday again, and I have a very interesting word for you all. 
This word is not to be confused with the word "sanguine" which means cheerfully optimistic, hopeful or confident: a sanguine disposition. It's so funny how similar these words are and how polar opposite their definitions are.

1.) full of or characterized by bloodshed; bloody: a sanguinary struggle.
2.) ready or eager to shed blood; blood thirsty.
3.) composed of or marked with blood.

Example Sentence: Sting revels in sanguinary battles.

A picture of my character Sting. :) 

Have you seen or used this word before? What do you think of it?
