Bronislaw Czevak is a renowned member of the Ordo Xenos made famous by his in-depth study of the Eldar.


Prior to the 13th Black Crusade

High Inquisitor Czevak was a frail 400 year old man confined within a cryogenic suspension suit to keep his body from failing him.[1] He was also a prominent Thorian member of the Ordo Xenos[1], particularly interested in the study of the Eldar. He was respected enough by the Eldar to spend time as a guest amongst the Iyanden Craftworld where he was even invited to attend The Dance without End by a passing group of Harlequins.[1a]

At some point prior to the 13th Black Crusade, Czevak was present upon the world of Darcturus, investigating the crash site of the Uthuriel Craftworld.[1b] It was here that Czevak excavated the shrine of Kaela Mensha Khaine in an attempt to study the means by which the Eldar utilized soul-transference technology so that it might be applied to the God-Emperor.[1c]

Unfortunately, his excavation was interrupted by a Deathwatch kill-team intent on destroying the alien abomination.[1c] But this intervention was itself thwarted by a group of Harlequins who had arrived to extend an invitation to spend the few remaining years of his life in the Black Library, granted him access to the ultimate repository of knowledge on Chaos.[1d]

At this point Czevak was infected with a Meme-Virus by his then-Interrogator Raimus Klute so that his ability to assimilate knowledge would be increased for the journey.[1e]

The 13th Black Crusade

During Abaddon's 13th Black Crusade, Czevak was captured by Ahriman of the Thousand Sons, seeking the location of the Black Library. Although Ahriman interrogated Czevak, he was unable to learn the location.

Subsequent to the 13th Black Crusade

Time spent in the webway miraculously envigorated the aged Czevak; despite him being over 433 years old upon his return to realspace, he had the body of a much younger man.[1f]
