Is Satan a fallen Seraph or Cherub?


I tried looking it up and virtually every website says different. Ezekiel 28 leads me to think that he was a Cherub. However, the Seraphim are the highest order of angels. It is very common view that Satan was the highest angel and maybe even the first creation. Thomas Aquinas supported the Cherub view.
