- Genre Savvy: When he is with his girlfriend in a cabin, he hears a noise and keeps a flamethrower ready in case there is a wendigo. Unfortunately, it is something worse.

"Don't go getting all authoritative on me, I hate it."
Dean met Cassie when he was on a case in Athens, Ohio, and the relationship became serious with him telling her about being a hunter. She couldn't accept what he told her and broke up with him, but later when her father and family friends die after being run off the road by a mysterious black truck, she calls Dean for help suspecting a supernatural cause. After Dean and Sam eliminate the ghostly truck, Dean mentions that they might continue to see each other, but she says she is a realist and does not see a future for them. Portrayed by Megalyn Echikunwoke. Appears in "Route 666" (S01, Ep13)
"Look, I know losing somebody you love is terrible. Believe me, I know. But when you shut out pain, you shut out everything else, too."
Sarah Blake is the daughter of an auction house owner in New Paltz, New York. Although she and Sam are attracted to each other and Dean tries to play matchmaker, they don't get involved because Sam is afraid of her getting killed like Jessica. Portrayed by Taylor Cole, Sarah first appears in "Provenance" (S01, Ep19)
- And Your Little Dog Too: Poor Sarah falls prey to Crowley when he starts hunting down those that Sam and Dean had saved over the years to kill them.
- Back for the Dead: Like Tommy Collins, in "Clip Show" (S08, Ep22).
- Big Damn Heroes: Cruelly subverted. Crowley lures Sam and Dean to Sarah's side so that they will be Forced To Watch her die. After she is already dead, Dean angrily throws the phone Crowley was taunting them on and it breaks to reveal that the demon had hidden the hex bag they'd been frantically searching for inside of it. Sarah dies and the damn hex-bag was in the phone the whole time.
- Braids of Action: Her hair is in two braids when she and Sam are fighting off Melanie's ghost, giving Sarah a more tomboyish appearance, as opposed to her more glamourous appearance in the earlier scenes.
- Brainy Brunette: Studied art in college.
- Death by Irony: Crowley decides to make her suffocate in front of the Winchesters, seeing as how Sam "took her breath away."

- Hey, It's That Guy!: Taylor Cole who plays Sarah Blake, also played Rachel Mills in Heroes.
- Hot Mom: She reveals in "Clip Show" that she is now married with a 1 month old daughter named Bess. She chokes to death soon afterward, leaving her husband widowed and her baby motherless... just like Sarah's own mother.
- It's Not You, It's My Enemies: Part of the reason Sam is reluctant to hook up with Sarah, which is wise since everyone he sleeps with dies.
Sam: Sarah, I had a girlfriend. She died. And my mom, she died, too. I don't know, it's like—like I'm cursed or something. Like death just follows me around. Look, I'm not scared of much, but I'm scared if I let myself have feelings for anybody—
Sarah: You're scared they'd get hurt, too. That's very sweet. And very archaic.
- Missing Mom: Losing her mother was so painful for Sarah that she just withdrew from the world for awhile.
- Nice Girl: Unlike most of Sam's love interests, she is not a demon or a monster.
- The Nicknamer: Sarah refers to Sam as Romeo.
- Screaming Woman: When Melanie tries to slit her throat.
- Shipper on Deck: Dean's OTP seems to be Sam/Sarah. Dean strongly encourages Sarah and Sam to get together, even pretending to lose his wallet so they can see each other again.
"I’ve been awake for some of it. I couldn’t move my own body. The things I did... it’s a nightmare."
Meg Masters was a college student from Andover, Massachusetts before a demon possessed her. Her pleas for help were answered when Sam, Dean, and Bobby exorcised it from her body in "Devil's Trap" (S01, Ep22)
, causing her to die from injuries inflicted on her body while she was possessed
. Portrayed by Nikki Lyn Aycox.
"I'm not nuts. I mean, I was so scared that I was losing my marbles. But this is real! I mean, I, I was right! Except for the mandroid thing. Thank you."
Ron was a security guard at a bank in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, when he was beaten unconscious by something that looked like his friend, a teller in the bank. Ron realizes that something is wrong and assumes that his friend was replaced by a half man, half robot, which he terms a mandroid. When the police refuse to listen to him, he takes everyone in a bank hostage trying to capture the mandroid, where Dean and Sam are hunting a Shapeshifter
that had assumed the shape of a bank employee. He is shot and killed, by the police, but returns as a vengeful spirit in "Are You There God? It's Me, Dean Winchester." (S04, Ep02).
Portrayed by Chris Gauthier. First appears in "Nightshifter" (S02, Ep12)
- Came Back Wrong: He was raised from the dead by Lilith much like Henricksen and Meg. Was noticably more aggressive and pissed at him dying and wanted to snap Dean's neck.
- Conspiracy Theorist: He seemed to be obsessed by a connection between aliens and Cheeseheads before he decided to track down the mandroid.
- The Cuckoolander Was Right: Ron saw the pattern in the robberies and the eye flare on the security footage. But he came to the wrong conclusion.
- Geek Physiques: Of the fat variety.
- Killed Off for Real
- Properly Paranoid: He turns on a flood light when Sam and Dean knock at his front door, and then asks to see their badges. Ron also made copies of all the security tapes from the bank because he thought the police would bury them.
- Room Full of Crazy: The walls of his home are filled with drawings, news-clippings, and photos.
- Slippery Skid: Falls on the shed skin of the Shapeshifter.
- Vigilante Man: Ron takes everyone in the bank hostage in order to capture the mandroid when the police wont listen to him.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: Thinks the thing responsible for the attacks is a mandroid. It's actually a shapeshifter.
Agent Victor Henriksen
"Well, guess what? Life sucks, get a helmet. ‘Cause everybody’s got a sob story, but not everybody becomes a killer."
FBI Special Agent Victor Henriksen is assigned to catch fugitive Dean Winchester (and later his brother Sam). He thinks they're both murderously insane, but acknowledges that they're crafty as hell and manages to get them into custody twice, the second time ending in his death shortly after learning the truth about the supernatural
. Portrayed by Charles Malik Whitfield. First appears in "Nightshifter" (S02, Ep12)
- Anti-Villain: Type IV: Jerkassery aside, Henriksen is still an honest, well-meaning FBI agent who wants to capture bad guys and save lives. He just happens to be chasing two fugitives who he thinks are murderous nutjobs.
- Authority Equals Asskicking
- Badass: All it took was a phone conversation with Dean for the Brothers Winchester to realize how screwed they were. (Though this came dangerously close to a Creator's Pet-type conversation.)
- Bald Black Leader Guy
- Brainwashed and Crazy / Came Back Wrong: Like Meg, this is how his ghost returns in "Are You There, God? It's Me, Dean Winchester".
- Cowboy Cop
- Cruel and Unusual Death
- A Death in the Limelight: In "Jus in Bello", Henriksen's motives are explored, he is revealed to be a genuinely good guy, and he develops a budding friendship with Dean. When he sees evidence of the supernatural firsthand, he helps Sam and Dean fight off legions of demons and it is even implied that he may become a hunter afterwards. Then Lilith shows up and slaughters everyone, Henriksen included.
- FBI Agent
- Fire-Forged Friends: With Dean and Sam.
- Forced To Watch: Lilith made him watch as she tortured everyone else in the police station to death, including flaying poor Nancy's skin off, before she finally killed him.
- Hero Antagonist
- Jerkass: Revealed to be a Jerk with a Heart of Gold.
- Inspector Javert
- Killed Off for Real: Very slowly and painfully by Lilith For the Evulz.
- Last Name Basis: Everyone except his partner (who calls him a"Vic") and their boss refer to him as plain, simple "Henriksen". Until he and Dean become buddies.
- Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: To standard operating procedure in his first appearance. When a cop on a case he's about to take over says: "I'm sure you're going to say you'd like me to cooperate and...," he responds with: "I don't give a rat's ass what you do. You can go eat a doughnut and bang your wife for all I care."
- Reality Ensues: There's a brief moment in "Jus in Bello" where, after nabbing Sam and Dean, his boss gives him paperwork to fill out. Henriksen himself looks like he forgot about this part of police-work.
Portrayed by Cindy Sampson
"Look, if, um... if you want to stick around for a while... you're welcome to stay."
- Affectionate Nickname: "Lis".
- Demonic Possession: In "Let It Bleed", one of Crowley's lackeys possesses her and stabs her in the gut as "insurance". Dean exorcises her and takes her to the hospital, but she's on the verge of death until Cass shows up.
- Girl of the Week: In her debut. She went on to reappear in another Season 3 episode and a handful of Seasons 5 and 6 episodes.
- Good Bad Girl: It's implied that she was this when Dean met her, before she had a kid and settled down some.
- Hot Mom
- I Have Your Ex-Girlfriend: Crowley kidnaps her and Ben in "Let It Bleed".
- It's Not You, It's My Enemies

- Living Emotional Crutch: After Sam's Heroic Sacrifice in "Swan Song", she is implied to become this to Dean.
- Love Interest: She was one of the few women Dean actually fell in love with.
- Mama Bear:
Dean: Lisa, I'm sorry, but this is actually the... worst time in the universe to talk. C-Can we do this later?
Lisa: You shoved my kid, Dean, how about we do this now?
- New Old Flame
- Stuffed into the Fridge: Suprisingly averted given what usually happens to the boys' Love Interests, though she and her son do appear to have been permanently removed from the series.
- Understanding Girlfriend: She's willing to try to make things work between her and Dean even when he goes back to hunting in Season 6. Until vampire!Dean comes to her house, freaks her out, and shoves Ben.
Portrayed by Nicholas Elia
Bela Talbot / Abbie
Portrayed by Lauren Cohan and Tiera Skovbye
"We're all going to Hell, Dean. Might as well enjoy the ride."
- Abusive Parents: Her father, specifically, but given that she killed her mother too she mustn't have been much better either.
- A Day in the Limelight: Kripke admitted "Red Sky at Morning" became "the Bela show".
- British Accents
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder
- Classy Cat Burglar
- Consummate Liar: As Dean oh so aptly puts it, "When that bitch breathes, the air comes out crooked!" She even lies about why she really made her Deal with the Devil on her proverbial deathbed, smiling and telling Dean, "They were lovely people, and I killed them, and I got rich. And I can't be bothered to give a damn." As revealed at the end of "The Real Ghostbusters", she was also lying about exactly whom she gave the Colt to.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Deal with the Devil: Made one when she was 14 to get rid of her parents. It comes due in "Time is on My Side".
- Death By Flashback
- Debt Detester
- Dragged Off to Hell
- Entitled Bitch: Goes to the Winchesters for help when her ass gets in the line of fire. But she hates asking others for help, immediately decides that she will save herself when it looks like they won't help her, and later admits that she knows she doesn't deserve to be saved. In fact, you could say that her reluctance to ask for help is why she (and Dean) go to Hell at the end of the third season.
- Evil Brit: Or at least, Downright Nasty Brit.
- Amoral Cannot Comprehend Good: She doesn't buy that hunters are trying to save people, calls them one step away from being serial killers, and seems to think the brothers are kind of adorable for thinking otherwise. She also assumes that Sam and Dean want cash payment for saving her in "Red Sky at Morning" rather than some gratitude.
- The "cash payment" was more of a Brick Joke, as Bela had stolen Dean's winning lottery tickets two episodes before.
- Expy: Of Catwoman to Dean's Batman. No, they didn't get together.
- Faux Affably Evil
- Freudian Excuse
- Friendly Enemy: Hunters in general don't seem particularly fond of Bela, but at least they put up with her and occasionally work with her. Then she takes the Colt and the Winchesters become less interested in bantering and Foe Yay, and more interested in hunting her down, reclaiming the Colt, and killing her.
- Good Girl Gone Bad
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Had she asked for help to begin with, the guys would have helped her.
- Killed Off for Real
- Laser-Guided Karma
- Moral Event Horizon: She crossed it in-universe in "Dream a Little Dream of Me" when she took advantage of the Winchesters' concern for Bobby to steal the Colt and thus shoot down the last chance Dean had to escape his deal. She may have crossed it even earlier when she shot Sam or when it was revealed that she was responsible for the death of a family member, but she almost definitely does when she tries to kill Sam and Dean on Lilith's orders.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: Even Bobby thinks that "Bela Talbot" is her real name!
- Rape as Backstory: Implied in a flashback.
- Rich Bitch
- Self-Made Orphan: In a roundabout fashion. She actually got a demon to kill her parents.
- Smug Snake
- Stepford Smiler
- Taking You with Me: She hopes to pull this off on Lilith when she uses her last words to rat her out to Dean. You can't yank a girl's chain about getting set free from her deal like that, Lilith.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: It's understandable if you dislike the adult Bela, but surely Broken Bird teenage Bela/Abbie deserves sympathy?
- Villainous Breakdown: Bursts into tears as the hellhounds come for her.
- Wig, Dress, Accent
- Wild Card
"You've seen so much. I just—I just wanted to see you smile."
Karen Singer was Bobby's wife. She became possessed by a demon and attacked him, forcing him to stab her to death to fend her off. Rufus exorcised her and helped Bobby dispose of her body, then trained him as a hunter. Portrayed by Elizabeth Marleau and Carrie Ann Fleming, Karen first appears in "Dream a Little Dream of Me"
- Back from the Dead
- Came Back Wrong: Death resurrects her as a zombie in "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" to punish Bobby for helping Sam resist Lucifer. Although she tries to fight it, Karen starts to turn into a mindless, flesh-hungry monster and begs Bobby to kill her before she hurts him. He tearfully obliges.
- Demonic Possession
- I Cannot Self-Terminate
- Killed Off for Real
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Exploits it in Season 5 to keep Bobby from knowing that she remembers being possessed and getting killed by him.
Karen: I remember everything, you know. When I died. That demon taking over my body, and the things it made me do. And Bobby having no choice but to—Well, you know what he did. But I can see it in his eyes when he looks at me. The guilt. It weighs on him.
Dean: So why don't you just tell him you remember?
Karen: I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say you've never been in love. He's my husband. My job is to bring him peace, not pain.
- The Lost Lenore: The love of Bobby's life.
- My Greatest Failure: Karen wanted to have kids. Bobby knew that but didn't tell her he didn't until after they were already married. When she found out, she screamed at him about it before collapsing into tears and saying she hated him. She got possessed three days later.
Bobby: Biggest regret of my life, this fight. You'd think it was when I had to stab her to death, but... no. All through that... I was thinking we never got to get past this. If I'd have known, I'd have said anything she wanted to hear.
- The Other Darrin: Carrie Ann Fleming replaced Elizabeth Marleau in Karen's second episode because the latter was heavily pregnant at the time of the episode and the idea of a pregnant zombie was a little more than the crew could handle.
- Posthumous Character
- Staking the Loved One: Poor Bobby.
- Supreme Chef: Dean approves of the quality and quantity of pies she whips up.
- Tragic Monster
- Woman in White: Of course, it's Supernatural!
Portrayed by Traci Dinwiddie
- Blind Seer: She becomes blind after seeing Castiel's true form.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Disabled Snarker
- Dying Curse: Before she dies, she tells Sam and Dean to tell Bobby to go to Hell for introducing them to her in the first place, which cost her her eyes and her life. She later appears to have changed her mind because, in Heaven, she is happy and at peace.
- Eye Scream: Ouch.
- Fearless Fool: "Sorry Castiel, I don't scare easy." Too bad.
- Good Bad Girl: She hits on Dean and Sam on a regular basis, invites them to a threesome with her, and gropes both of them. Needless to say, she's popular with the fangirls.
- Prophet Eyes: Her fake eyes, which make her look "extra psychic."
- Psychic Powers
- Sunglasses at Night: After going blind. Doesn't use them in Heaven, of course.
"I mean, angel inside of you, it's kinda like being chained to a comet."
Jimmy is a devout Christian who sold ad time for an AM radio show. He is married to Amelia, and has a daughter named Claire. The ability to serve as an angelic vessel runs in his blood line. When he tells his wife about being contacted by the angel Castiel
, she begs Jimmy to get psychiatric help, but Jimmy agrees to be Castiel's vessel if Castiel keeps Jimmy's family safe. Later when Jimmy regains control of his body after Castiel is recalled to heaven, Jimmy no longer wants to be Castiel's vessel and attempts to go back to his family. However, he agrees to return to being Castiel's vessel to spare his daughter the fate of an angelic vessel. Jimmy's fate is unclear after Castiel's death in "Lucifer Rising" (S04, Ep22),
but at least some of his traits remain in the vessel, such as Castiel's craving for hamburger in "My Bloody Valentine" (S05, Ep14)
. Portrayed by Misha Collins

First appears in "The Girl With The Dungeons And Dragons Tattoo"
- A Day in the Limelight: Her previous two episodes were minor supporting roles, but in "Pac Man Fever" we learn a whole about Charlie herself.
- Ascended Fangirl: Averted. Despite having a clear admiration for Action Girls as well as a love for all things Fantasy and Sci-Fi, Charlie is extremely reluctant to put herself in danger and only does what she knows she is capable of doing (hacking and corporate espionage).
- Always Wanted To Say That: "I'm in."
- Big Brother Instinct: Both Sam and Dean become quite protective of Charlie, even though they know her for all of a day or two. Dean even lampshades this:
Dean: She's kinda like the little sister I never wanted.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer:
Roman: Tell me, how does a high-school dropout become one of the brightest minds at Roman Inc?
Charlie: Um, honestly? Historically, I've had this problem with authority, no offense, so I realized the only way I could get away with being me was to be as...indispensable...as possible.
- The Bus Came Back: Returns in "LARP And The Real Girl".
- Chick Magnet
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: Charlie learns about Leviathans, and reasonably assumes the person she got the info from is nuts. Then she accidentally learns they're real, and promptly tries to pack up and vanish. When the Winchesters show up, she reasonably assumes they're Leviathans, until they prove otherwise. For the duration of the episode, she tries to stick to her skill set instead of getting in fights. After the day is saved, she promptly gets on a bus and vanishes.
- When she shows up again at the Men of Letters bunker in Season 8, her tablet is loaded with as much monster data as she could find from researching the Winchesters… including Carver Edlund's novels.
- Embarrassing Tattoo: Charlie has one of Princess Leia in her slave bikini riding a twenty-sided die. In her defense, she was drunk and at Comicon.
- Establishing Character Moment: Charlie comes into work listening to "Walking on Sunshine." When finally out of sight in an elevator, she rocks out happily to the music but composes herself the moment the elevator doors open again.
- Hidden Depths: Pac-Man Fever reveals that she can handle a gun and hit a target straight in the head without blinking. No explanation where that particular skill came from.
- She has a habit of rerouting corporate funds toward various causes she cares about… including paying the hospital bills for her mother, who's been comatose since she was 12.
- It's All My Fault: Blamed herself over her father's death and her mother being comatose after going to sleepover and being frighten by it. Dean coats her out of that.
- Interspecies Romance: Falls in love at first sight with a fairy named Gilda.
- Lipstick Lesbian
- Meaningful Name: Charlie Bradbury. Justified as Charlie hinted that she made it up to give herself a new identity.
- Nerds Are Sexy: Well, it's Felicia Day!
- Not My Type: Dean suggests Charlie flirt her way past a security guard.
Charlie: "I can't. He's not my type."
Dean: "You're gonna have to play through that."
"As in, he's not a girl
- Playful Hacker: Some people surf the net when no-one's looking at work. Charlie diverts funds from the Republican party to Animal Lovers.
- Refusal of the Call: Played straight, then averted.
- Charlie was very reluctant to put herself in danger and after her part is done, puts herself on a bus and tells Sam and Dean never to contact her again.That didn't last long after they find out she had been LAR Ping as a Queen where murders start to happen.
- By the time she came back in "Pac Man Fever", she had fully went into the monsters lore and read the "Supernatural" books. She even called herself a Hunter In Training.
- Show Some Leg: As noted above, Dean tells her to flirt past a security guard. To his credit, Dean takes the time to check and see if the guard has ever shown interest in her, before telling her to flirt past him.
Dean: Pretend he has boobs.
Charlie: (looks disgusted) Worse.
- Dean then resigns himself to instructing her how to flirt with a man. Hilarity Ensues.
Charlie: I feel dirty.
Dean: You and me both, sister.
- She does the same in "Pac Man Fever" while trying out sexy clothing to pose as an FBI agent.
- Tomboyish Name: Charlie. It's not her real name, though. We don't learn her first name, but we learn her surname is Middleton in "Pac Man Fever".
- Ultimate Job Security: Discussed and invoked. Charlie figured the best way to get away with her illegal activities was to make herself as indispensable as possible.
- What Would X Do?: Sam motivates Charlie to go through her dangerous mission by asking her what Hermione would do.
Portrayed by Lissa Neptuno
"Prophet of the Lord, huh? It does have a nice ring to it. I'll get packed."

- Action Mom
- Angst Coma: At the end of "What's Up, Tiger Mommy?", but she's back to normal by her next episode.
- Boyish Short Hair: She chopped off her long hair between the seventh and eighth season.
- Bus Crash: Possibly. In "Taxi Driver", Crowley tells Kevin that in-order to get a fix on his location, he had to go through another Tran to find him. It is unknown if Crowley was telling the truth or if he was lying his ass off to mentally torture Kevin.
- Damsel in Distress: Leviathans kidnapped her at the end of Season 7. They let her go after Kevin translated the Word of God for them.
- Deal with the Devil: She ends up bidding her soul to save Kevin from getting bought by Crowley. But then the monster she sold it to got killed, so the contract looks like it's been broken.

- Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: She punches Crowley in 8.02 What's Up Tiger Mommy for kidnapping her son.
- Hot Mom: Linda's hot enough that even Crowley tried to flirt with her.
- Mama Bear: If you even mock her son, she'll punch you in the friggin' face, King of Hell or not.
"Stay away from my son."
- The Other Darrin: Her actress was replaced in Season 8 because Jeremy Carver is a fan of Lauren Tom.
- Took a Level in Badass: Like Kevin, she gets much tougher after learning about the Supernatural in Season 8. She later captures a demon left to kill her and gets him to divulge where Kevin is being held.
Portrayed by Liane Balaban
- The Alcoholic
- Brainy Brunette: Amelia appears to be smart, educated and logical.
- Broken Bird
- Deadpan Snarker
- Defrosting Ice Queen
- Don't You Dare Pity Me!: She pretty much says it word-for-word in "Southern Comfort". She hated getting it from other people after her husband, Don, got (seemingly) KIA while serving in the army.

- Love Interest: For Sam.
- Overprotective Dad: She has one who initially disapproved of Sam.
- The Scrappy: Brought in as a love interest for Sam in the first half of Season 8. She was received so badly by the fandom that not only did the writers acknowledge it, she received only a single scene in the Season Finale Recap despite being in a third of the season's episodes.
- Part of why she is so hated is that the writers intended for her to be the reason why Sam quit hunting and didn't look for Dean. Instead, their characters had such little chemistry that fans turned to cutting down Sam as the real reason.
- Widow Woman: Subverted—she only thought Don was dead.
"So this new ritual we're going to see, this new type of exorcism, how does it work?"
Josie was to be initiated into the Men of Letters at the same time as Henry Winchester

- In-Universe Camera: She makes a film in Saint Louis on March 8, 1957, of Father Thompson and Father Simon trying to cure a demon, which is placed in file 1138 in room 7b at the Men of Letters bunker. The file is listed in the records with the comment "Weird!!!"
