An anti-possession symbol acts as a ward that will protect the wearer from possession by a demon. The anti-possession symbol for demons appears as a pentagram, created as an endless knot inside a circle reminiscent of a sun symbol. The symbol can be warn as a charm, or tattooed onto the body, though tattooing the symbol appears to be a rarity amongst hunters. The only people known to have had the symbol tattooed onto their bodies are Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester, Mary Winchester, Dean Winchester II, Sera Siege, Kevin Tran and Linda Tran.
Like all other wardings, if the symbol is altered in any way, it's protection is negated.
