"My powers are yours to command."

The Librarian is the secondary commander unit for Space Marines in Dawn of War. They can be trained at the Sacred Artifact, costing 245 Requisition and 80 Power. Only one can be deployed at a time.


  • Commander unit (secondary).
  • Boosts Morale recovery when attached to squads.
  • Psychic unit with many powerful abilities focused on weakening enemy resolve.
  • Effective against infantry, heavy infantry, and Daemons. Excels at close combat.


Librarians have:


The Librarian has three special abilities. Some of his abilities also require research so some are unavailable in early campaign missions.

  • Smite: Delivers a powerful psychic blast that damages most units and can disrupt infantry. Small area of effect. Best used on clumps of ranged infantry.
  • Weaken Resolve: Demoralizes a target squad. Requires several moments to be effective. Use it whenever it's charged.
  • Word of the Emperor: Nearby infantry units are protected by an incredible psychic shield and thus refuse to die as long as this lasts. They still receive damage, however they just stop at 1 health point. Arguably the librarians most useful ability.


The Librarian is your secondary commander, a Space Marine "psyker" (i.e., has psychic abilities). He's fairly tough and substantially skilled at melee, though his main purpose is using his extremely powerful support abilities. He has a higher squad morale bonus than a Sergeant (though not as high as the Force Commander).
