Although unspecified, Tzadqiel, being an angel, possessed at least the abilities of transportation between dimensions and possessing humans.
Tzadqiel is apparently an Angel of Heaven, a servant of the Judeo-Christian God. He may represent the soul of a deceased human, or he may have been created as an Angel. He is most likely is part of the Asura, a militant branch dedicated to exterminating all opposition.
As part of an active war against the forces of Satan, Tzadqiel plotted to reduce Satan's power by eradicating his worship, by making it known that Satanic worship would be punished on Earth by his Heavenly master. To this end, he traveled to Bend Sinister, Utah, to a small coven of the Church of Lucifer. There he possessed one of the Satanists, Donny. Too late, the other Satanists tried to stop him: one of them, versed in simple magics, threw up occult fencing around their house, while another contacted the head of their Church, Anton Devine.
Devine, in turn, contacted his ally, Daimon Hellstorm, who had recently slain his father and ascended (or descended) to the role of Satan, ruler of his father's former branch of Hell. Hellstorm investigated this novel case of Angelic possession, and in the process encountered Stephen Loss, who had also come to investigate, but was kept out by the mystic shields. Hellstorm, not held back by the wards against Angels and the like, entered the hovel, revealed his true nature to the three remaining Satanists, and confronted Tzadqiel/Donny. Unprepared to be confronted by Hellstorm's new power, Tzadqiel was forced to reveal his true name and plan to him. Calling on his full power, Hellstorm easily exorcised the Angel, who laughed at him, revealing that he could not be fully exorcised (sent back from whence he came) due to the shieldfield barring angels' entry or exit. Hellstorm revealed that that was exactly as he had planned and, in fact, he had actually reinforced to the shield--trapping Tzadqiel there for all eternity--more or less. As Hellstorm teleported away, Tzadqiel tested the shield, found there was no escape, and slaughtered the other Satanists--but remained trapped nonetheless.
