Name Belphegor
Actor Alexander Calvert
Occupation Demon
Episode(s) 15.01 Back and to the Future

Look, I'm not some crossroads demon. I'm not even one of those black-eyed goons who crawled his way up here to eat, you know, virgins and puppies and virgin puppies. Look, downstairs I punch a clock. A soul comes in, I torment it, it's what I do.

– Belphegor, 15.01 Back and to the Future


Belphegor is an old and powerful demon, who was released from Hell when Chuck opened all the doors. He described his life as a human as coming from a time where people were "ugly" and worshiped a giant rock that looked like a penis. As a demon, he is a self-described "clock puncher," Belphegor enjoyed his work tormenting the souls that entered Hell and wishes for things to go back to normal after the mass breakout. This results in him offering his services to the Winchesters and Castiel.

Belphegor is also a fan of Dean Winchester's from when he spent his time in Hell and tortured under Alastair. He calls what Dean did "more than torture", telling him how he thought it was art.


15.01 Back and to the Future

With the Winchesters and Castiel trapped in a crypt, Belphegor makes his presence known by taking possession of Jack's lifeless, blinded body. As he tries to formally introduce himself, Castiel, angry that he is defiling Jack's body by possessing it, demands that he leave. Due to their desperate situation, Dean and Sam allow Belphegor to explain himself. He tells the Winchesters and Castiel that he wants the souls back in Hell as much as they do, and offers to get them out of the crypt by performing a spell using graveyard dirt and angel blood that blasts all the souls from their meatsuits.

Driving back to the Bunker, Belpehgor reveals that 2-3 billion souls were released from Hell. As they are currently unable to close the rift, he suggests that containing the souls is their best option, offering to perform a spell that would act as a mile-wide salt circle around Harlan, Kansas, that would keep any ghosts from getting in or out.

In Harlan, Belphegor and Dean remain downtown to collect the ingredients for the spell, while Sam and Cas help evacuate the citizens. After getting a bag of rock salt, Dean and Belephegor prepare to go to the morgue to retrieve a heart for the spell. Belphegor and Dean are diverted when the overhear the Woman in White kill the Harlan sheriff. Belphegor removes his heart, and as he and Dean prepare to perform the spell, Constance Welch appears and attacks them. Dean is able to temporarily banish her, allowing Belphegor to perform the spell, creating a barrier around Harlan to keep any ghosts from getting in or out.
