is first referenced when Sam and Dean investigate a case where people claim angels ordered them to kill. [[ Father Reynolds]] , while administering Last Rites to Father Gregory's spirit, says "I call upon the archangel Raphael, master of the air, to make open the way.

the protector of the Prophet [[Chuck Shurley]]. He supported the plan to bring on the Apocalypse so that Michael could defeat Lucifer, and killed Castiel when the angel tried to stop the breaking of the last [[The 66 Seals|seal]].
managed to escape from the circle, and following the imprisonment of [[ Lucifer]] and [[ Michael]] in the Cage, he became the leader of a group of traditionalist angels intent on restarting the Apocalypse . They are opposed by a group led by Castiel . Part of Raphael's strategy involves gathering [[ Angelic Weapons]] missing from Heaven to strengthen his army. He encounters a setback when [[ Donnie Finnerman]]'s body is destroyed by [[ Balthazar]] using [[ Lot's Salt]], necessitating the search for a new vessel. He next appears in an unidentified female vessel. Raphael then sends an angel named [[ Virgil]] to kill Balthazar and anyone else who allied with Castiel and retrieve the Angelic Weapons, but Balthazar gets the weapons to Castiel, and Raphael retreats. After Castiel imbues himself with the souls of Purgatory, he snaps his fingers, killing Raphael; this act appeared to be very similar to how Lucifer killed Castiel.

===[[5.03 Free to Be You and Me]]===
Raphael possessed his vessel, [[Donnie Finnerman]], during a demon induced riot at a [[Pump 'n Go]] gas station called in Maine. The damage caused by Raphael was attributed to an explosion, and the incident was witnessed by [[Deputy Framingham]]. Raphael abandoned Donnie, who was left in a catatonic state, and returned to Heaven. Raphael returns to Earth and his vessel to confront Castiel and Dean, who attempted to summon him. He manifests in the abandoned building they are hiding in, shorting out the electricity and possibly the Eastern Seaboard. He threatens to take Dean to Michael, and to torture him, but Dean and Castiel trick him into a circle of holy oil, trapping him.
They interrogate him to learn God's location. Raphael tells Dean and Castiel that God is dead, and that the
heavenly hosts are tired of waiting with duties to fulfill and no guidelines. They want to bring forth paradise on Earth. Raphael brings about a storm that shatters the windows of the house. Castiel does not believe Raphael's assertion about God, and demands to know how he was resurrected, if not by God. Raphael suggests that it was Lucifer, because he needs all the rebellious angels that he can find. Castiel and Dean then leave Raphael, who warns the other angel not to leave him there, becuase he will catch up with him one day. Castiel replies, "Maybe one day. But today, you're my little bitch!" [[File:RaphaelSalt.jpg|right|thumb|Raphael's Vessel is Destroyed|300px]]
===[[6.03 The Third Man]]===
Sam and Dean investigate the deaths of three cops which mirror Egyptian plagues. Dean has summons Castiel, and they discover that a [[Aaron Birch|boy]] has been using part of the [[Staff of Moses]]. Castiel later tells Sam and Dean that
Heaven has been thrown into chaos without Michael, with angels going rogue, celestial killings, and the theft of their weapons. He also warns them that Raphael is back and trying to gain all of Heaven's weapons so that he can win the civil war against Castiel, then release Lucifer and Michael, putting the apocalypse back on track. When asked why, Castiel simply calls Raphael a "traditionalist" who wants "to end the story the way it was written." A soldier of Raphael attacks Castiel, then returns to his leader.
Raphael and his soldiers track down Balthazar, the angel who stole the weapons and sold part of the Staff of Moses, looking for the other weapons. Sam and Dean banish one of Raphael's soldiers with the [[
Angel Banishing Sigil]] and Castiel kills one with an [[ Angel Killing Sword]]. Raphael then appears behind Castiel and attacks him mercilessly. Just as Raphael is about to kill Castiel, Balthazar appears and turns Raphael's vessel into a pillar of salt using Lot's Salt, forcing Raphael to look for a new vessel.

===[[6.15 The French Mistake]]===
Sam and Dean are given a key by Balthazar that supposedly opens the repository containing Heaven's weapons and are transported to an alternate reality to protect them from Raphael, who has started to hunt them down. Raphael sends Virgil after them. When the Winchesters are transported back to their universe, they are greeted by Raphael in a new female vessel. Balthazar then appears and tells Raphael that the key given to Sam and Dean was a decoy. Castiel, now in possession of Heaven's weapons, also appears and threatens Raphael, who disappears.

The Host of Heaven]], at which he will ask Castiel to pledge his allegiance to Raphael. He announces that he will proceed to free Michael and Lucifer from [[Lucifer's Cage|the Cage]] and resume their apocalyptic battle.
After Castiel makes his deal with Crowley, he returns to Heaven, and with the power of an extra 50,000
souls obtained from Hell is able to make his first stand against Raphael. <br clear="all"/>
===[[6.22 The Man Who Knew Too Much]]===
Raphael forms an alliance with Crowley after Castiel
betrays Crowley in their search for purgatory. Castiel, who is outnumbered, is forced to give them the blood of a creature from purgatory which is required to obtain all the souls from it.
