Not sure I can track down the Blood ads, but I seem to recall the image of a person (seen in first-person view) in a blood-filled tub initially paired with text implying suicide, if an impermanent form. (Starting with "You ravaged your soul in service to a dark god. Betrayal was your only reward...") While it wouldn't be really out of character for Caleb (or any other of the Chosen, really) to be willing to bathe in blood, I don't recall anything suggesting any of them deliberately did so.

Contested example:

  • In Rome: Total War one of the Stirring Speeches given before battle includes the lines "I want to see their blood! I want to bathe in their blood! I want to bathe in their blood for a week!

I'm asking for more clarification that the character is speaking rather LITERALLY about this (or is shown elsewhere to be washing himself in tubs of blood) and not merely just evoking images of extreme bloodshed through metaphor. Only the former is an applicable trope example of Blood Bath.

Haven't played it, but that's pretty clearly the latter and Not an Example.
