|First:||"It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester"|
Uriel is a fictional Angel featured in the CW Network television series Supernatural. Played by actor Robert Wisdom, he was introduced in the season four episode, "It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester". Uriel made four appearances in the series altogether.
Uriel was an Angel of the Lord, and was considered a "specialist" when it came to performing certain unsavory tasks, such as smiting entire population centers. In October, 2008, Castiel and he were given orders to come to Earth and follow the commands of Dean Winchester to see if he is "battle ready" for the war to come. Uriel neglected to disclose this particular nugget of information to Dean, owing partially to his dislike of humans, but also because of another task that laid before him. A powerful witch going by the name of Tracy Davis, who had managed to mask her presence from the angels, was threatening to summon the Celtic Deity Samhain, thus breaking one of Lilith's 66 seals. As time was short, Uriel intended on decimating an entire town to prevent the seal from being broken. Sam and Dean pleaded with the angels for the opportunity to take down the witch without resorting to drastic measures. Unfortunately for them, the seal was broken and Samhain was released. Though Sam managed to banish Samhain, the breaking of the seal brought them one step closer towards setting Lucifer free.
On the day after Halloween, Uriel met with Sam privately. He admonished him for using his demon-spawned powers of exorcism and told him that the moment he stopped being useful, he would turn him into dust. (Supernatural: It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester)
Notes & Trivia Edit
- The character of Uriel was created by director Charles Beeson and writer Julie Siege based on concepts developed by Eric Kripke.
- Uriel believed that humans were nothing but savages who were beneath his notice. He referred to them as "mud monkeys". His disdain for them was so great that he refused to even acknowledge the presence of Sam and Dean upon their first meeting until he had to address them.
