Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew Up… in Lawrence, Kansas with his father, mother, and baby brother, until the age of four when his mother was murdered and his house burnt down. After his mother’s death, Dean, his father, and his brother Sam moved all across the US in search for the demon that killed his mother. Dean was made aware of his father’s occupation as demon hunter early on in life and was trained to become a hunter soon thereafter.

Living… in various motel rooms and his car, a 1967 Chevy Impala. Dean travels around the country, keeping an eye out for the supernatural and battling demons, vampires, ghosts, and anything else that goes bump in the night.

Profession… hunter since early adolescence. Because he’s been training since he was little, Dean is one of the best in the business. He describes his job as, “Saving people. Hunting things. The family business.”

Interests… pies, cars, rock-and-roll, and movies. Dean’s interests were shaped by a life on the road, so he appreciates diner food, loves his Impala more than anything else, and has an encyclopedic knowledge of movies. If he’s in control of the radio—and it’s his car, so you can bet he is—expect some classic rock turned up loud.

Relationship Status… none. Dean has never had a problem getting women to like him, and he uses this talent for one-night stands, but he doesn’t want to get into anything serious. Mostly because there’s a fair chance that whoever he ended up with would die, like his mother did.

Challenge… finding his father. He’s been incommunicado for too long, and Dean’s starting to get worried. Now he has to convince Sam to leave Stanford and find their father. But Sam might end up being more of a liability, seeing as how he hasn’t been “in the life” for years, choosing to go to college instead.

Personality… confident, cool, and extremely loyal. Dean cultivates a bad-boy personality, and makes sarcastic jokes at even the most morbid times. Teasing his brother is one of his favorite pastimes. Underneath, though, he’s become hardened by life as a warrior. The only thing that really gets to him is family. Dean will protect his family at all costs.
