Name Castiel
Actor Misha Collins
Location no fixed address
Occupation Angel
Episode(s) 4.01 Lazarus Rising

Castiel is the Angel who rescued Dean from Hell, according to Castiel on a command from God. His handprint is burnt into Dean's arm.

His true voice is piercing to the human ear and looking on his true visage will burn a human's eyes from their head, as Pamela Barnes found when she tried to summon him in a seance. It will also burn the eyes of humans possessed by demons as shown in the diner scene when Sam is attacked by a blind demon. When he meets Dean he is inside the body of a man he says "prayed for it".

4.01 Lazarus Rising

Castiel tries to 'speak' to Dean after his resurrection, but all Dean here's is a piercing sound. When Pamela Barnes conducts a seance to reveal the being who saved Dean, Castiel warns her off, but she persists and is blinded when she encounters him. Again, while Dean is alone in the hotel room in Pontiac, Castiel tries to speak to Dean, but his 'voice' shatters all the glass in the room and makes Dean's ears bleed.

Dean is intent on summoning Castiel, and so he and Bobby prepare an empty warehouse with protective sigils and symbols and Bobby performs a summoning ritual. When Castiel appears, Bobby and Dean shoot him with rock salt to no effect. Dean stabs Castiel withRuby's Knife, also to no avail. Castiel causes Bobby to pass out and then reveals to Dean that he is an angel, who saved him from Hell on God's command. "I gripped you tight and raised you from perdition." He tells Dean that God "has work for him."

Castiel in lore

According to "Dictionary of Angels: Including the Fallen Angels", Castiel is an Angel Of Thursday in the occult lore. This may be a reference to the fact that Supernatural airs on a Thursday night on The CW.
