Castiel

Bio:

Castiel typically displays very little emotion and always exhibits an extremely somber disposition. Although it has been suggested angels possibly do not possess the ability to truly feel emotion, Castiel frequently exhibits what could be referred to as friendly affection towards Dean.9 This attachment and growing ability to feel even causes him to be “demoted”, as his superiors fear emotions are clouding his judgment.10 Throughout his appearances in the fourth season, he also seems to, at the very least, come close to expressing regret, hesitance, and anger several times, and has once quietly laughed at a joke Dean made in “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester”. Actor Misha Collins feels, through Dean, “[Castiel is] learning a little bit about humanity and re-learning something about [his] own humanity from that exposure. So…there’s a humanizing of Castiel going on.”18 Castiel begins having an internal struggle between what is right and what is wrong, and whether or not to obey orders from Heaven. Collins feels this is because interactions with Sam and Dean have made the angel “uncertain” and “more fragile”. The actor believes Castiel envies Dean’s decisiveness and desires to emulate him.19 Having lost his connection to Heaven in the fifth season, Castiel’s humanization seems to have quickened by the episode “Free to Be You and Me”, as he appears extremely anxious while in a whorehouse, is visibly distraught when asking Dean for help, and refers to the Archangel Raphael as “my little bitch”.20
Contrary to depictions of angels in popular culture, Castiel and his peers are not out helping people in need. Though he has a conscience and cares about humanity’s welfare—he finds humans to be “works of art”7—Castiel is willing to kill innocents if the need arises. Speaking of his character, actor Misha Collins stated, "I think that these angels are at least loosely derived from some Biblical angel stories, and those angels are [very tough]. They just destroy. I picked up Revelations, and they destroy, they destroy, they destroy. There’s no mention of cherubs and harps or any of that
