* {{Cain}}: Winchester brothers found Cain, who owns the "First Blade", a magical sword who kills Abbadon (the Big Bad then). Here, Cain explains to Dean about why he killed Abel in the first place: he wasn't talking to God, he was talking to Lucifer. To save his brother, Cain made a deal: his soul in Hell in exchange for Abel's in Heaven. Lucifer agreed if Cain killed Abel himself. Cain did with the First Blade and was transformed into the first Knight of Hell and trained the rest.
