Character Bio

Cain photo
Cain ~ "Abel wasn't talking to God. He was talking to Lucifer. Lucifer was gonna make my brother into his pet. I couldn't bear to watch him be corrupted, so I offered a deal — Abel's soul in Heaven for my soul in Hell. Lucifer accepted...as long as I was the one who sent Abel to Heaven. So, I killed him. Became a soldier of Hell — a knight".

Cain, unlike most demons still possessed a good deal of his humanity and was one of the few demons to show love (most likely from turning into a demon from the effects of the mark, rather than centuries of brutal torture in Hell). He dearly loved his brother Abel, willingly becoming Lucifer's soldier to save Abel, and personally murdering him so that Abel would get into Heaven. He spent thousands of years doing terrible and brutal things with the Knights. However, he fell in love with a woman named Colette, who loved him even after she found out what he was. Following his love dying because of Abaddon, Cain gave up his life of violence in a promise to her, and buried his head declaring himself retired.

By the time Dean came to him looking for the First Blade, Cain was living an isolated life like a normal man and showed a passion for bees. Initially seeming apathetic and uncaring towards Dean, Cain refused to help, but once Dean proved his strength, Cain agreed to return partially to old ways. However, he was tired of life and what he was going to do, he asked Dean to kill him once Abaddon was dead, showing a death wish.

Cain also had an interest in Dean Winchester, having, despite being retired, heard a lot about him. He considered Dean to be a lot like him and was impressed to see Dean lived up to his reputation. He eventually agreed he was worthy of taking the Mark of Cain, making him the one to kill Cain.

Cain also showed an affinity for bees, taking up beekeeping after retiring, he considered them noble creatures.

After slaughtering Abaddon's demons, Cain fell back under the Mark's influence, believing that his bloodline was "tainted" (its implied he might have been partially right, as it did have unusually high number of killers) and that it was his duty to kill them all. Never the less he did retain his politeness and respect for Dean Winchester. He came to feel he should never have resisted the Mark's influence and that it was inevitable that he and Dean fall to it. However, when Dean defeated him, Cain showed an acceptance of his fate, bowing his head and waiting for the fatal blow.
