The Librarian (Lib or Libby) is a Space Marine gifted with psyker abilities, working as combat spell-caster and Chapter lore-keeper both. He functions as a powerful support unit with good melee damage but fragile health.

  • Killing enemies in melee inspires (non-Terminator) allied infantry in radius 35, increasing their damage by 5% and lowering received suppression by 10% for 15 seconds
  • Smite ability is very effective against blobbed infantry
  • Designed to synergize with Devastators through the Veil of Time ability
  • Excellent synergy with Assault Marines and Terminators as well
