From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
The Sanguine were a faction of Awoken that arose during the early days of Awoken civilization in the Distributary. Unlike the Eccaleists, the Sanguine believed that the existence of the Awoken was a gift, and that the Awoken had no responsibility to resolve the conflict between Light and Darkness that had birthed them. Their ideology had the practical effect of justifying cutting off all contact from the Earth.
