Lucius Antros is a Lexicanium in the Blood Angels Chapter and is the current protege of Chief Librarian Mephiston.[1a]

He was present when Hive Fleet Leviathan invaded the Baal System[1a], however the Lexicanum would not take part in most of the campaign against the Tyranids. Instead Antros was among the Librarians chosen to aid Mephiston in a Warp ritual that would prevent the Bloodthirster Ka'Bandha, from invading Baal as well. He was unaware though, that his inclusion in Mephiston's plan greatly annoyed the Epistolary Gaius Rhacelus. Gaius had always felt, that Antros was too ambitious for power and thought it was unseemly how the Lexicanum constantly fussed over Mephiston. The Epistolary had even brought his concerns about Antros to the Chief Librarian's attention, but Mephiston had ignored any criticisms about his protege. However when they ventured into Baal's Cruor Mountains, where the ritual would take place, Gaius forcibly rebuked himself for doubting Anthros[1b]. Later when the ritual began, a portal into Khorne's kingdom was opened and Mephiston struck at Ka'Bandha, in the hopes of ending the Daemon's threat before it could escape from the Warp. The Bloodthirster struck back however and then offered immortal life to any of the Librarians that revoked their vows to the Emperor. Though none answered, Anthros was falling under the Bloodthirster's sway, but luckily Gaius saw this and quickly told the Lexicanum not to fall for the Daemon's false promises. This helped Anthros regain his senses, but his weakness left a flaw in the ritual and when Ka'Bandha attacked again, the Librarians collapsed and the Warp portal was closed. Many of the Liberians who took part in the ritual were killed by the ordeal, though Antros himself survived to continue to serve the chapter.[1b][2a]
