The Lion Helm is a sacred object of the Dark Angels Space Marine Chapter. It is said to have been worn by Primarch Lion El'Jonson and takes the form of a winged Mk VII power armour helmet. The helm is carried by a Watcher in the Dark. Built into the helmet is a protective force field which can be activated even when the helm is not being worn.
The Lion Helm is currently worn by Supreme Grand Master Azrael. Upon Lion El'Jonson's return in the Arks of Omen Campaign, Azrael offered the relic to his Primarch but was refused. The Lion has stated he will only take back the Helm when he considers Azrael of no longer wielding it.
