All BA and their successors are blood drinkers. All of their sons feel the thirst for it. Cawl even said that he wasn't changing that because that's part of the Emperors design.
Also, the timeline is 112 years after it started, and Guilliman ended in Ultramar, which is on the other side of the galaxy.

Are they? I've only seen it specifically mentioned for (unsurprisingly) the Blood Drinkers. Most of references to what the likes of the Flesh Tearers, Flesh Eaters and Knights of Blood get/got up to are rather vague or oblique like 'blood rituals'; from which you might infer blood drinking, but I've always assumed it was hinting that they do other things that would be considered more depraved than simply drinking blood.

Certainly I've never read anything to suggest the angels triumverate (Encarmine, Sanguine, Vermillion) indulge in blood drinking, perhaps largely because they barely have any fluff outside their codex snippets. Admittedly I haven't read all of the Black Library BA novels and most of my info comes from Codices, lexicanum or 40kwiki.

Always interpreted the red thirst as a metaphorical description of a craving for hand to hand fighting and bloody violence rather than a literal bloodlust.

Read Dante by Guy Haley. Plus since at least second editions they've been called Vampires. Plus Mephiston used to have a rule where he had to stay and drink blood. That's what the red thirst is.

The Sanguinary priests' symbol (and tool of the trade) is literally a chalice full of blood :-D

Back in the day, Mephiston fell to the Red Thirst in its entirety, rather than the Black Rage. It was him as the Red Thirst survivor, and Lemartes as the Black Rage survivor.

There are also examples from Blood Quest, the HH novel about Signus, Dante, and even the Deus Encarmine series.

Dante is the one I would put the most faith in (it's the most recent and closest to codex).

I will be using primaris units in my new FT force representing the remnants of a strikeforce that fought on Baal during the hive fleet's attack, and the new reinforcements delivered by big blue. My thoughts are Seth can see the salvation of his chapter, and has welcomed them as brothers but is watchful of them so he is serving alongside some to not only act as a example to the chapter to welcome the new brothers but also to present a figure of the chapters authority and hammer home the fact they are flesh tearers now not (insert Ultima founding chapter here)

Cheers, seems I'll have to fall down the Black Library rabbit hole after all.

That book is well worth the fall twice over.

I can see seth challenging a primarus marine to single combat infront of the whole chapter, then proceeding to whoop him up and down the fortress monastery just to prove a point
