Characters of Supernatural - Angels - Zachariah


Zachariah, portrayed by Kurt Fuller, is a Seraphim and Castiel's superior. After Dean tells Castiel saving the world is too much for him, Zachariah teaches Dean a lesson by giving him and his brother new, separate lives with no memories of their previous one, the two now unrelated individuals who just happen to work in the same office. Despite this, the brothers find one another and team up to deal with a haunting. This experience proves to Dean he is a hunter in his heart. Realizing the chance to make a difference is something most people never get, Dean embraces his role.

In The Monster at the End of the Book, Zachariah contacts Chuck after the latter has an unknown but dark prophecy concerning the Winchesters, warning Chuck against alerting the brothers. When Lilith nears breaking the final seal in "Lucifer Rising", Zachariah and Castiel imprison Dean in an idyllic room in order to keep him safe. After repeated questioning by Dean, Zachariah admits Heaven is allowing the demons to break the seals. Confident in their ability to defeat the forces of Hell once Lucifer is unleashed, they see this as a means of finally attaining Paradise, with Dean being kept in reserve as their warrior after Lucifer escapes. Although Castiel betrays Zachariah and banishes him to rescue Dean, they are unable to stop Lucifer escaping.

When Lucifer is freed, Zachariah attempts to convince Dean to become the vessel of the Archangel Michael, going as far as torturing Sam and Dean by inflicting various diseases on them until Dean says 'Yes'. However, Zachariah is shocked when Castiel, who had been killed by the Archangel Raphael, appears. To Zachariah's horror, Castiel hints at his belief that God has been interfering. Castiel then orders him away after healing the Winchesters, and Zachariah acquiesces. In "The End", he reappears to Dean- locating Dean through a street preacher as Castiel has branded Sam and Dean with Enochian sigils that prevent Zachariah from easily finding the brothers- and drags him to a dark future, where Sam has become Lucifer's vessel five years into the Apocalypse. Zachariah tries to convince Dean to take his role as Michael's vessel as the Future Dean had refused in the past, but this backfires; Dean instead joins up with Sam again in order not to let his brother lose his way, with Castiel rescuing Dean from Zachariah after they return to the present. In "Dark Side of the Moon", Zachariah pursues the Winchester brothers when they die and enter Heaven. He plans to torture Dean whether or not he accepts to be Michael's vessel, but the timely intervention of Joshua- the only angel who speaks directly to God- prevents Zachariah from doing so.

In "Point of No Return", the angels resurrect Sam and Dean's half-brother Adam (from the season four episode "Jump the Shark"), under the false pretense he will take Dean's place as Michael's vessel. It is later revealed Adam is an unsuspecting bait to lure Dean Winchester to Zachariah. Dean is forced to agree to being Michael's vessel when Zachariah tortures Sam and Adam and tells him to summon the archangel. Just as Michael starts to descend, Dean mentions his conditions for being the vessel, the first of which is Zachariah must die by Michael's hands. Zachariah insults Dean and tells him Michael will never kill him. However, he makes the mistake of getting too close to Dean and Dean stabs him through the head with an angel sword, killing him.
