While the angelic civil wars in Heaven raged, it appeared that the cupids stationed on Earth began to gradually lose contact with their superiors; the daily orders from Heaven of who to match together became fewer and fewer. It is assumed that once the council of angels took on leadership and brought order to Heaven once more, orders for the cherubs resumed on a daily basis.
[[File:823cupidsbow.png|right|thumb|350px|A cherub's bow and arrow.]]
Cherubs, like all [[angels]], require vessels to walk the Earth. They differentiate from other angels through their "bow and arrow"; while Cupid is typically depicted holding a physical bow and arrow, a cherub's bow and arrow appears as a tattoo on the palm of their [[vessel]]'s hand, allowing them to make connections between humans with a simple touch.
Like all angel classes, they are stronger than humans -- hence when [[Dean]] punches one in the face, the cherub is unharmed, while Dean clutches his hand in pain. They greet people and other [[angel]]s by hugging them... Nobody likes it.
===Powers and abilities===
* Invisibility – Cherubs can render themselves invisible to the naked eye by occupying space within [[the Veil]].
* Invulnerability – As with all angels, a cherub's durability far exceeds that of humans.
* Matchmaking – Cherubs can manipulate the mere nature of "love" itself, as they can bring the most opposite of humans together. This ability can manifest through the manipulation of events, causing two people to meet each other, or a simple touch. When a person is hit with "cupid's arrow", their hearts will become marked with [[Enochian]] script
* Super strength – While a lower order of angels, a cherub's strength still far exceeds that of a typical human.
* [[Teleportation]] – Like all angels, cherubs had the ability to teleport, which was removed after [[the Fall]].
* [[Angel blade]] – Cherubs can be killed or injured by the weapons of Heaven.
* [[Grace Extractor|Extracting grace]] – Like all angels, removal of a cherub's grace will render them human, with human weaknesses.
* [[Holy oil]] – Can trap a cherub, as well as cause death upon contact.

===[[5.14 My Bloody Valentine]]===
[[Dean]], [[Sam]], and [[Castiel]] make their way to a small restaurant while searching for a [[Cupid]]. Soon after their arrival Castiel notices a supernatural disturbance. He follows the entity into a back room and somehow traps him. Castiel then demands that the entity show itself to Dean and Sam. The cupid manifests as a naked man, and immediately embraces the two hunters and the angel strongly. Castiel demands to know if the cupid is responsible for the deaths of a couple he brought together. The cupid explains that he touched the couple's hearts as instructed, and did not know what happened after that. Castiel is still suspicious, so the cupid asks Castiel to read his mind to see the truth. Castiel agrees, and after a few moments declares that the cupid is innocent. The cupid then reveals to Dean and Sam the truth about how [[John]] and [[Mary]] met; Dean is disgusted by the cupid's remarks, and punches him in the face. Dean staggers back, and the cupid, though unharmed, is overcome by emotion and disappears.

Lucifer asks the cherub where he can find other angels, but the fearful cherub says he doesn't know, revealing that there are not many angels anymore. The cherub begins begging Lucifer for mercy; Lucifer starts to comfort the newly human angel before driving his arm through the cherub's body and killing him.
==Cherub Angels in Lore==
[[Image:Cherub Love Angel.jpg|150px|right]]
Cherubs, or Cherubim, are an order of angels that are of a lower ranking than [[Seraph]]s but they outclass all other angels of the angelic choir or spheres which divides, separates, and fully compromises the angelic society.
[ Attributes of cherubs include]:
* They guard, watch, and monitor God's throne room at all times.
* They have four different faces, each representing a different organism, and have four wings that are used for flight. Two of the wings extend upward, meeting above and sustaining the throne of God, while the other two stretch downward and cover the creatures themselves.
* God also stationed two Cherubs at the gate of the Garden of Eden.
