History

White-eyed demons are among the oldest of the old demons, predating the Princes and Knights of Hell.[1] There are a total of two known white-eyed demons, Lilith and Alastair. Lilith was the first demon to be created, her soul having been stripped of its humanity and twisted by the fallen archangel Lucifer as an act of spite against God when he was expelled from Heaven.[2] Due to her status as the first demon, she is the last of the 66 Seals, with her death breaking the last seal and releasing Lucifer from the Cage, where he was imprisoned for the creation of demons.[3]

Alastair may be the second demon ever created. He has a mysterious past, but it is implied to be almost as long as Lilith's. He considers the centuries-old black-eyed demon Ruby to be "young" when compared to himself.[4] He was considered the "Grand Inquisitor" in Hell. Alastair also claimed to be an "old friend" of Death's,[5] who had been imprisoned since Biblical times.[6]

Characteristics

White-eyed demons are among the oldest and most powerful demons to ever exist. They have been shown to be exceptionally cruel and evil even among average demons, Alastair preferring Hell to Earth and Lilith having a sweet tooth for human infants. Alastair and Lilith have a penchant for inflicting cruel and unusual torture to their enemies, but, according to Ruby, Lilith "gets creative" when they make her angry. Castiel and Ruby both agree that Lilith has "a certain sense of humor".[7][8]

Powers and abilities

White-eyed demons have the standard powers of demons and more.

  • Super Strength - They have great strength, allowing them to overpower regular angels and reapers,[9][10] but they cannot kill them with a touch.
  • Immortality - They will not die unless killed.
  • Immunity
  • Lilith is said to be immune to holy water,[11]
  • Alastair has been shown to be highly immune to Ruby's knife.[12] White-eyed demons such as Lilith can emanate a demonic blast of white light at their targets.

Weaknesses

  • Archangels - They are superior to white-eyed demons, Lilith having fled in terror during the arrival of Raphael.[13]
  • Holy Water - Alastair has shown pain from holy water, but has a higher resilience and recovery to it than regular demons.
  • Salt - Alastair has shown pain from salt, but has a higher resilience and recovery to it than regular demons.
  • Special Children - White-eyed demons like Lilith and Alastair can be pinned, tortured, and killed by Sam's psychic powers when they peak as a result of his regular consumption of demon blood. Sam is also shown to be immune to their powers.
