SN Beings from the Show/ Season One


1.01 Pilot "Yellow eyed demon" & "Woman in White"

"Constance Welch" Our woman in white..., murdered her children.

La Llorona, or the ‘crying woman,’ is a wildly spread story associated with
Mexico and the USA, and has a number of cases associated with her,
but in all cases it is a woman mourning the death of her children.
The legends supposedly started with the Mexican story of the Indian
Princess Dona Loveros, who fell in love with a handsome Mexican
nobleman, Don Montescarlos. They had two children, but the nobleman
refused to marry her. When the Don left and married another woman, she
went mad with rage and stabbed her two children. The authorities found
her wandering the street, sobbing, her clothes covered in blood. She was
charged with infanticide and sent to the gallows. Ever since it is said that
the ghost of La Llorona walks the country at night in a bloody dress,
crying for her murdered children. If she finds any child, she’s likely to
carry it away with her to the nether regions, where her own spirit dwells.


1.02 Wendigo "Wendigo"

According to John's journal, Wendigo is an Cree Indian word that means "evil that devours". The Wendigo are hundreds of years old and each was once a man who turned to cannibalism to survive and found that it changed them, giving them enhanced speed and strength, and granting them near immortality. They hibernate for years at a time and store humans to eat when they wake. Guns are useless against them - the only good defence is fire.

The wendigo is a man-beast that lives in alone the forest. It is far from benign,
feeding whenever possible on human flesh - especially that of children. The
Wendigo's hunger does not make its intellect go down at all; far from
mindless it is evil and cunning: intelligent as a human with the
strength and savagery of a monster. Wendigoes attack travellers; when
there are none to be had they will make stocks of human flesh in the
trees for the long winter. Some wendigoes are aggressive and will
attack cabins and campers. One of their favourite games is to scare a
victim so bad that he or she will run into the woods blindly, making for an
easy kill. Wendigoes are said to be immune to almost all weapons but
one. Any weapon made out of silver has great power over the monster.
Usually the creatures are destroyed by a silver axe with a blow to their heart
of ice. The heart must be cut out and the body dismembered, the heart
buried in a box on holy ground and each body part in a lake or some other
part where it will never be found. Suggestions have been made that fire
will also kill a Wendigo, melting the ice of which they are said to be made.


1.03 Dead in the water "Angry Spirit of a murdered boy"



1.04 Phantom Traveler "Demon Possession"

Through Religion and Folklore, a demon is now more commonly seen to
represent an evil force that may be conjured up and insecurely controlled.
Through all religions, the idea of the demon is to bring misery such as
through disease or natural disaster. Some may possess a body and reveal
themselves through a disease.


1.05 Bloody Mary "Bloody Mary"

Bloody Mary was once Mary Worthington who was murdered, her eyes cut out with a knife. In revenge, she haunts an old mirror, killing people who hide secrets about unsolved deaths. She was destroyed by Dean and Sam when they shattered her mirror.

The Bloody Mary legends were often associated with stories about Queen
Mary I of England whose life was tormented by a number of
miscarriages and false pregnancies. Speculation exists that the abortions
were self inflicted, leading to her receiving the nickname of Bloody
Mary. It is unlikely that this is a direct Connection to the legend, other than
the sharing of the name. Divination using mirrors could also be part of the
origin. On Halloween, a young girl looking into a mirror while holding a
candle in the dark would expect to see the face of her future husband,
although sometimes they would see the face of the grim reaper, indicating
they were destined to die before they married.


1.06 Skin "Shapeshifter"

This particular shapeshifter was born human but suffered from a genetic mutation that allowed him to take on the form of other people, possibly designed to hide his hideous, deformed self. He also has a psychic link with those whose form he takes. He was killed by Dean while looking like Dean. Dean is now officially listed as deceased.

Almost every culture around the world has some type of shapeshifting myth, and
almost every commonly found animal (and some not-so-common ones)
probably has a shapeshifting myth attached to them. Usually, the animal
involved in the transformation is indigenous to or prevalent in the area
from which the story derives. It is worthy to note that while the popular
idea of a shapeshifter is of a human being who turns into something else,
there are numerous myths about animals that can transform themselves as well.


1.07 Hookman "Hookman"

The Hook Man legend has been around since the 1950's. It probably came
about, as many Urban Legends do, as a lesson to teenagers about the perils
of acting outside accepted moral boundaries. In this case that refers to
the fact that in almost every version of the legend, the teenagers are on a date
or 'making out' in an isolated spot. The story usually begins with the
teenagers hearing a news item about an escaped criminal or lunatic. After
hearing scratching noises, they drive off in fear, only to find a hook
embedded in the car door. In most versions of the legend, the teenagers
escape unharmed, but a clear warning is given.


1.08 Bugs "Supernatural Swarms are part of Indian Folklore"

1.09 Home "Evil & Good spirits"

A poltergeist (German for noisy ghost) is a malevolent spirit or ghost
who manifests by moving and influencing inanimate objects. The
most common occurances are knocking sounds and furniture being
moved, although items being thrown across a room and levitation of people
are typical behaviours. They are quite often seen as violent. Some
parapsychologists believe that because poltergeist activity usually
revolves around children, it is actually a form of telekenisis at work, rather
than ghostly activity. Another theory is that poltergeists are the ghosts of
those who have died whilst in a powerful rage.


1.10 Asylum "Tortured Souls"


1.11 Scarecrow "Pagan Gods/Scarecrow"

The titular scarecrow is a Vanir which protects the town for a dire price.
They are believed to be gods of fertility.


1.12 Faith "Reaper" & "Hobgoblin"

One of many forms of the Grim Reaper, this one had been bound by Sue Ann LeGrange when her husband was dying. Desperate to save him, she found a method of controlling the reaper, which she then used as a way of a) allowing her husband to "heal" people and b) to murder those who she believed to be evil. As soon as the reaper was freed, it killed Sue Ann.

A type of hobgoblin, the Rawhead traditionally lives near water or under sink pipes, which could explain why he's living in a basement. Dean and Sam decided to attack it with tasers rather than more traditional weapons. It was killed by a hit with the taser.

Hobgoblin is a term typically applied in folktales to a friendly or amusing
goblin. The word seems to derive from 'Robin Goblin', abbreviated to
'hobgoblin', 'hob', or 'lob'. The name originally referred to that of a specific
folkloric character Robin Goodfellow but has grown to be defined as a
different species of goblin or fairy. The name is often interchangeable
with "boogeyman" and the term "hobgoblin" has grown to mean a
superficial object that is a source of fear or trouble.

Death has been personified as a figure or fictional character in mythology and popular culture since the earliest days
of storytelling. Because the reality of death has had a substantial influence on the human psyche and the
development of civilization as a whole, the personification of Death as a living, sentient entity is a concept
that has existed in many societies since the beginning of recorded history. In Western cultures, death is
usually shown as a skeletal figure carrying a large scythe, and wearing a midnight black gown with a hood,
while the color white is often associated with death in Asia.

1.13 Route 666 "Phantom Truck"

A phantom vehicle can be one of two things: a ghostly apparition of a vehicle; or one that is possessed or
haunted by a spirit, either acting strangely, or manifestations appearing in the seats. They are often said to
represent the final journey's of the spirits, many of which died on route, re-enacting their final moments. The
common sightings are of sports cars driving too fast to take the bends, gangster vehicles dumping their
victims, and trains powering down disused lines to the sight of derailments.


1.14 Nightmare "Special Powers" "Banshee"


1.15 The Benders "Human, Human Hunters"


1.16 Shadow "daevas"

In mythology, the Daevas are warrior demons causing plague and disease,
fighting against every form of religious belief. They are said to care
only for their fame and prowess. They are destroyed wherever the ‘Holy
Flame’ spreads, in other words, by light. It is said if the sun fails to rise
that the Daevas would kill all living things.


1.17 Hell House "The Ghost of Mordecai " Tulpa.

A house haunted by the ghost of Mordecai, a man who reportedly killed his six
daughters during the 1930s. The brothers discover a website dedicated
to the Mordecai legend and realize the town is unknowingly conjuring up a
tulpa through the site. A tulpa is, in Tibetan mysticism, a being or object
which is created through sheer willpower alone. In other words, it is
a materialized thought that has taken physical form.

1.18 Something Wicked "Shtriga"

In Albanian folklore, the Shtriga is a witch that sucks the life-force, or blood,
from a person at night whilst they sleep. Her more common victims are
children and infants, their life-force said to be stronger. She flees the
scene by turning into a flying insect. Only the Shtriga can replace the
energy that she has taken, usually by spitting in the mouth, if not returned
the victim becomes progressively sicker until they die.


1.19 Provenance "Evil spirit in Painting"


1.20 Dead Man's Blood "Vampires"

Vampires (sometimes vampyres) are mythological or folkloric creatures
believed to be the re-animated corpses of human beings who subsist on
human or animal blood. In folklore, the term usually refers to the blood-
drinking humans of Eastern European legends, but it is often extended to
cover similar legendary creatures from other regions and cultures. The
characteristics of vampires vary widely between these different
traditions. Some cultures also have stories of non-human vampires,
including real animals such as bats, dogs, and spiders, and mythical
creatures such as the chupacabra.

kill and eat the parents.


2.03 "Bloodlust" Vampires


2.04 "Children shouldn't play with dead things" Zombies

A zombie is purportedly a dead person whose body has been re-animated.
Stories of zombies originated in the Afro-Caribbean spiritual belief system
of Vodoun (Voodoo), where zombies are humans who have had their "Ti
Bon Ange" (Creole from the French "petit bon ange", or "little good
angel") or soul stolen by supernatural means or shamanic medicine, and
who thus lack free will and are forced to work as uncomplaining slaves for a
"zombie master", typically on plantations. It is widely thought that,
if such "zombies" existed, they were in fact heavily drugged but still-living humans.

2.08 "Crossroad Blues" Black Dogs, Deal making Demon

A black dog is a spectral being found primarily in British folklore. The
black dog is essentially a nocturnal spectre, and its appearance was
regarded as a portent of death. It is generally supposed to be larger than a
physical dog, and often has large, glowing eyes. It is often associated
with electrical storms (such as Black Shuck's appearance at Bungay,
Suffolk), and also with crossroads, places of execution and ancient
pathways. Its Welsh form is confined to the sea-coast parishes, and on the
Norfolk coast the creature is supposed to be amphibious, coming out of the
sea by night and travelling about the lonely lanes.

If one makes a deal with the demon, The demon grants the person 10 years, of wealth. love, and good fortune.
In ten years the Demon returns with Black Dogs to collect the soul and take them to hell.

as a clever, mischievous man or creature, who tries to survive the
dangers and challenges of the world using trickery and deceit as a defense.

distinction, often misapplied in Greek mythology. "Demigod" is meant to

2.16 "Road Kill" Vanishing Hitchhiker

The vanishing hitchhiker is a reported phenomenon in which people
travelling by vehicle meet with or are accompanied by a hitchhiker who
subsequently vanishes without explanation, often from a moving
vehicle. The standard story, is that it is a dark and stormy night. A person
driving sees a forlorn figure at the side of the road and decides to give
him or her a lift. Usually the hitchhiker is a young woman in some
sort of trouble... her prom date dumped her, or her car broke down.
The driver gets to her house only to discover that his passenger has
disappeared without a trace from the back seat of his car. He knocks on the
door to the house, maybe to make sure the girl is ok, and the door is
answered by the girl's parent. Eventually it comes out that the girl
died some years ago, and every year on the anniversary of her death (or her
birthday), the girl hitches a ride back home with a stranger. In the majority
of cases the hitchhiker is female, either a beautiful girl or a little old
lady. The description of the girl usually mentions her beauty, wearing
a dress that is never coloured, but may be black or white.


2.17 "Heart" Lycanthrope-Werewolf

A werewolf (also lycanthrope or wolfman)
in folklore is a person who shapeshifts into a wolf or wolflike
creature, either purposely, by using magic, or after being placed under a
curse. They are sometimes said to be immortal. The medieval chronicler
Gervase of Tilbury associated the transformation with the appearance of
the full moon, but this concept was rarely associated with the werewolf
until the idea was picked up by fiction writers. In popular culture, a werewolf
can be killed if shot by a silver bullet, although this was not a feature of the
folk legends.
