Ezrael is mentioned as one of five ancient vampires from whom all Salubri warriors are descended. The few accounts on Ezrael's history acknowledge he embraced another Cainite during the Bronze Age, but was likely much older than that.
His lineage was one of great prestige, as one of his apprentices named Rothriel has fought against the followers of Moloch and the swarm of Chorazin alike, and was privileged enough to have once sat and learned at the feet of Saulot himself.
- According to the Salubri historian Nuriel, the five Salubri progenitors of the Warrior caste were Uriel, Za'aphiel, Ezrael, Aariel and Gabriel. However, this tale does not mention Ithuriel. Besides, according to Qawiyya el-Ghaduba account, she was the last childe and bearer of the first-hand copy of the Code of Samiel, penned by the mythical warrior himself centuries ago. If that is correct she would be Samiel's favorite childe who single-handedly launched a divergent warrior’s path from within the clan of healers.
