The Main Characters

Dean Winchester – Jensen Ackles

Dean Winchester was born on January 24th, 1979 and is the son of John and Mary Winchester and the older brother of Sam Winchester. On November 2, 1983 his mother was killed by a demon, engulfing her in flames on the ceiling. As soon as he was old enough to hold a gun, John began training Dean to hunt the things that go bump in the night, in hopes of someday finding and killing the demon who killed his mother. His father later disappeared and Dean went to find his brother Sam, or Sammy as he likes to call him, in hopes of teaming up with him. After Sam's girlfriend was killed by the same demon who murdered their mother Dean and Sam took off to travel together hunting all supernatural evil. In 2007, Sam died and Dean sold his soul to give Sam his life back. In return Dean was given only one year to live before he will be summoned to hell. Allegedly, Dean was sprung from hell by an angel sent by God.

Samuel "Sam" Winchester (AKA: The Boy King) is the son of John and Mary Winchester & younger brother of bad boy supernatural hunter Dean Winchester. He was born May 2nd, 1983. His mother was killed on the night of his 6 month birthday when a demon engulfed her in flames. Sam then lived on the move with his father and brother learning to hunt supernatural beings. As Sam grew older the strain between him and his father intensified upon Sam's discovery of his brother and father's hunting of evil beings. After a while, he decided he no longer wanted to hunt and eventually left to go to Stanford University. It was there that he met his girlfriend Jessica Moore who was later killed by the very same demon that killed his mother. After this second tragedy in his life, he decided to team up with his brother Dean once again and hunt all supernatural evil in hopes of one day finding and killing the demon that plagued his life. Along the way, Sam began to realize he had certain powers within him. He began to have visions of the future and a kind of telekinesis that allowed him to move objects with his mind. Unsure of the extent of his powers and how to use them, Sam learned he was supposed to be a soldier in a war led by a demon. He no longer has the abilities now that they killed the demon. He died in 2007 in the battle to kill the demon that murdered his mother and girlfriend but was later revived when Dean sold his soul for Sam's life. While Dean was in hell, Sam started hunting with Ruby, a 'good' demon, and developed demon-killing powers.

Sam Winchester – Jared Padalecki

Bobby Singer – Jim Beaver

Bobby is a hunter like the Winchesters, though he seems to stay fairly stationary. He wears a lot of flannel and is almost always seen in a trucker's hat. He runs an auto salvage yard as his day job, and is a go-to guy for supernatural research. He seems to have amassed quite a bit of knowledge over the years, plus his house is full of bookcases and stacks of books about the supernatural world and the things hunters go after. He and John Winchester were old friends, though they had a falling out prior to the onset of the series. According to Dean Winchester during Bobby's first appearance, the last time Bobby and John met prior to the show, Bobby almost "filled him with buckshot," but they made peace and were working together again before John's death.

Meg Masters is the daughter of Azazel, the Yellow-Eyed Demon. She attempted to summon a Daeva (Zoroastrian demon) and trap the boys as a ploy to get their father. She also later is exorcised by the boys, sent back to hell. She manages to crawl out eventually and possesses Sam to torture Dean, but Dean and Bobby, after some difficulty, exorcised her. The picture to the right was her first host. She is currently refered to as Meg, although that was the girl's name that she possessed before she was exorcised. We are not aware of another name.

Meg Masters – Nikki Aycox [presumed incapacitated]

Ruby – Genevieve Cortese

Ruby is a demon who has promised Sam that she can help him save his brother. She posesses a special knife that can kill demons, something that neither the brothers nor Bobby knew existed. She helped Bobby rebuild the Colt, the gun that can kill anything. Her true motives or plans for the Winchesters are currently unknown, though so far, even though she has been helping Sam get into his 'demonic powers', it appears that she is one of the good guys, since Sam is killing demons. But time will ultimately tell all.

Castiel is an angel of the Lord who pulled Dean from Hell. He gives Dean orders from God, though mostly Dean takes them and does with them what he will. Castiel, though an angel, isn't angelic. He doesn't feel as humans do, and as such, doesn't feel much guilt when he carries out orders that result in people's deaths.

Castiel - Misha Collins

Uriel - Robert Wisdom

[African-American man in the picture] Uriel is an angel, similar to Castiel, but he hates Dean. He is even more of a bastard than Castiel, who refers to humans as mud-monkeys. He despises Sam, thinking that he is evil, and would not hesitate to kill him if given the chance.

Alastair is a white-eyed demon that was the main demon that tortured Dean in Hell, trying to get Dean to start torturing humans instead, which it took 30 years to do. He is apparently immune or resistant to Ruby's knife. he character Alastair may be a reference to the demon Alastor in Christian demonology. Alastor is the chief executioner and torturer for the monarch of Hell. He is an exceptionally cruel demon. The name 'Alastor' became a common place term in reference to evil spirits or foul tempered individuals. He is also featured and mentioned throughout Greek literature and mythology. Alastair has Greek origins, meaning "protector of men". Alastair is the anglicized form of the Scottish Alasdair, which is the Scottish (Gaelic) version of Alexander.

Alastair - Mark Ralston
