Librarians are Space Marine psykers. They fulfill several important specialist roles in an Order: Outside the battlefield, they are responsible for interstellar psychic communications. In battle, they use their abilities as powerful psykers. They are among the connoisseurs of the history and traditions of the Chapter.
The earliest known Space Marine fighters were the First Legion's Host of Pentacles during the Unification Wars. However, these warriors suffered from many dire calamities and over time the project was abandoned.
Space Marine Battle Psykers reappeared during the Great Crusade. The early history of librarians is one of suspicion and intrigue. Initially, the legions did not use psykers in their ranks, but Magnus the Red, Sanguinius, and Jaghatai Khan proposed the Librarian program, which allowed the Thousand Sons to train and establish Librarius detachments in a variety of legions. Librarians have been favored or have been seen in the White Scars, Night Lords, Ultramarines, Thousand Sons, Word Bearers, Salamanders, Alpha Legion, Dark Angels, World Eaters, and Raven Guard Legions. Some of the Primarchs were even opposed to using psykers in the Space Marine legions, or at least in their own legions. Legions that did not advocate their use or did not employ them were the Iron Warriors, Space Wolves , Imperial Fists, Iron Hands, Death Guard , and Emperor's Children.
