The full extent of Zadkiel's powers stands unrevealed. He is immortal as evidence by his long-live and can travel between heaven and Earth if not other dimensions. He can communicated to beings on the mortal plans through various hosts such as birds.
In combat Zadkiel wields a large black sword. He is skilled enough with is and strong enough to slaughter a group of Ashuras, assassins of heaven.
Originally Zadkiel was an angel of heaven who sided with Lucifer in his rebellion. Before the rebellion ended Zadkiel betrayed Lucifer and aided in bashing him from heaven. As punishment for siding with Lucifer, Zadkiel and his black legion was denied entrance to the high heavens and placed in charge of heaven's black ops. His mission included combating hell's incursions on Earth and keeping humanity's evil in check. One way he did this was through controlling the spirits of vengeance. He manipulated the spirits to purposely hide their true origin to keep heaven's involvement with them secret. He did this through a combination of messing with their memories and having them take on the appearance of either demons or beings from other religions. Eventually, he grew tired of his role and launched a second rebellion against heaven seeking the throne for himself. To accomplish this he began recruiting human followers on Earth to serve him on the mortal plan and fight for him after they died.
