Ephraim was a member of a class of angels known as Rit Zien, which are angel "field medics," that healed the injured or, in the case of those beyond saving, would render a quick and painless death. Before the fall of the angels, Ephraim had never been to Earth but had met Castiel and was in awe of him despite his failures.


9.06 Heaven Can't Wait

Falling to Earth in Rexford, Idaho, Ephraim takes the vessel of a man who had recently become devout and, due to Reverend Buddy Boyle, agrees to be his vessel when approached. Ephraim becomes determined to continue his work on Earth, ridding the world of pain and starts by killing his vessel's wife.

Ephraim kills three more people and tracks down Castiel from the pain he's emanating about being human despite him having warded himself. Confronting him at Nora's house, Ephraim stops Castiel from banishing him and tells him he should be trying to help the fallen angels rather than trying to be human. When Dean shows up, Ephraim tosses him into a wall and prepares to kill Castiel, but Dean tosses him an angel blade as Ephraim attacks, allowing Castiel to stab Ephraim with it, killing him.
