From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Zadkiel was a Fleet-Captain in the Word Bearers Space Marine Legion during the Horus Heresy. He is most notable for acquiring the captaincy of the Furious Abyss, a mammoth space vessel constructed in relative secrecy by the Dark Mechanicum, and shortly afterwards losing not only the vessel but his own life as a result of the machinations of Captain Cestus of the Ultramarines. However, he ended up inflicting a mortal blow to the captain. Zadkiel and Cestus were the final Astartes to die onboard the ship.
