History

Sleipnir was a son of Loki, and close friends with Gabriel, having offered him asylum with his brothers in Monte Carlo when Gabriel faked his death. When the Apocalypse was looming, and it appeared that Lucifer would be victorious, Sleipnir, along with his brothers Fenrir Odensbane and Narfi, bound and kidnapped Gabriel on orders of his father and sold him off to the Prince of Hell Asmodeus.

Characteristics

Despite his age, Sleipnir does not appear to be particularly powerful. In a fight with Dean, after Dean disarms him, he is easily thrown to the ground. Unlike most pagan gods, he does not display any extraordinary powers of his own. His real form is a horse, as his occasionally-glimpsed "demigod face" shows and he has a penchant for eating apples and carrots. Sleipnir also shows a weakness to silver, as a silver bullet to the right shoulder was able to wound him. Like most pagan gods, Sleipnir can be killed by being stabbed through the heart with a specially-crafted wooden sword that has been coated with an unknown blood. Sleipnir's weapon of choice appears to be a nine tailed flog whip made from brown leather and rope.

Episodes

13.20 Unfinished Business

Finding Fenrir's body with Narfi, Sleipnir remarks that Fenrir died as he lived, next to a bottle, before pointing out to Narfi that Fenrir got a few good hits in before dying. When Narfi examines and tastes the blood and realizes it is from an archangel, Sleipnir immediately calls their father. Tracking Gabriel to the Winchesters' motel, Sleipnir and Narfi enter the motel room and begin fighting the Winchesters. He was attacking Dean with a flog whip and getting the upper hand until Gabriel drives a wooden sword through Narfi, prompting Sleipnir to make a hasty exit.

Returning to Loki's penthouse in the Ophidian Hotel, Sleipnir realizes that the Winchesters and Gabriel have found them and orders the guards to kill them. In the the shoot out, Sleipnir is hit in the shoulder with a silver bullet, injuring him. As he lays prone on the floor, he begs Gabriel for mercy. Gabriel drives the wooden sword into Sleipnir's heart, killing him.

Sleipnir in Lore

In Norse mythology, Sleipnir (Old Norse for "Slippy") is the gray eight-legged horse of Odin, and the child of Loki and the stallion Svaðilfari. Sleipnir is described as "the best horse among gods and men."
