|This article is about the Chief Librarian of the Dark Angels, for the Dark Angels Captain known as Ezekiel see Cloud Runner|
Ezekiel is the Chief Librarian (or Grand Master of the Librarians) of the Dark Angels Chapter. His full title is Ezekiel, Grand Master of Librarians, Keeper of the Book of Salvation, Holder of the Keys.
He holds the Book of Salvation, a book listing the names of all The Fallen who have been captured by the Dark Angels. This book is of deep cultural significance and will only be passed to the next Grand Master of the Librarians when Ezekiel dies. He also carries the Keys which open the doors around the Rock, including the Tower of Angels, the cells and dungeons of the Fallen Angels, and the cell containing Luther himself.
He lost his left eye at the Battle for Sularian Gate against the horde of Waaagh! Groblonik. His eye was quickly replaced with a simple bionic eye, allowing him to return to battle in time to lead a counter-attack which broke Groblonik's army. Since then, he has refused to have it replaced for a more sophisticated and less noticeable one as a mark of respect to his fallen comrades.
Ezekiel's wargear includes an ancient set of Artificer Armour named Secret's Shield and the Deliverer, a master-crafted bolt pistol that has killed many Fallen Angels. The most ferocious and sinister of his weapons, though, is the force sword Traitor's Bane, which is rumoured to trap the souls of the Fallen he faces. The Book of Salvation, which he carries at all times, causes all Dark Angels in his presence to be fearless in battle.
Ezekiel is named after the Prophet from the Book of Ezekiel in the Jewish Bible, who prophecised the Destruction of Jerusalem (Drawing parallels against the destruction of Caliban, or the possible destruction of Terra or the Imperium). Ezekiel means "God will strengthen".
