Talk:Gabriel

Quick question. Near the end of 5.01 Sympathy For The Devil, Castiel after his resurrection, inscribed angelic runes in Dean and Sam's ribs, hiding them from angels and archangels alike. But in 5.19 Hammer Of The Gods, Gabriel somehow managed to locate Dean and Sam despite the sigils. How did he do that? --Anderson54, December 22nd 2010

Gabriel didn't locate them. I believe Kali invited him to the meeting in his disguise as Loki. --MisterGlass 14:49, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
I think Gabriel just got wind of the other pagan gods' plan about the Winchesters and the Apocalypse. Kali and the other gods seemed surprised to see him, so he was probably not actually invited. --Scyllaya 16:50, 25 December 2010

Sweets

It says he likes sweets 'unlike most of his angel brethren' Anna specifically says she likes chocolate cake, and none of the other angels seem to eat. Should it be changed? It seems that 1/3 of the angels we've seen have shown an active interest in sweets, so maybe it's an angel thing? --Civfan24

Anna's cake addiction was while she was human! And its Bobby who says that Tricksters like sweets --Missyjack 04:34, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

removed he likes sweets, he only showed interest in sweets while he was posing a Trickster. --Anderson Writer, Feb. 7th 2010


I think the whole "sweets" thing really does just go back to Trickster stuff, and more specificly Gabriel (who wasn't posing as a trickster, at that point he basically WAS a trickster, EXTEMELY powerful because of his being an Archangel, but still a trickster for all intents and purposes). --Celticdude 05:00, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

A "Trickster" is the name for a type of demigod. Gabriel was in "witness protection" by posing as one, in which case he was eating sweets mainly because he favors it; he favors that because he likes being a trickster. So this means that he does like sweets.

I do think it's interesting to note that Gabriel is usually seen as the "Herald of Heaven" in theology; and in Classical Mythology that is Hermes, who is often viewed as a trickster, and was left offerings of honey and other sweet things, like Supernatural's Gabriel Trickster, who would still have once been Heaven's Messenger before he came down to do the "Pagan thing" as Dean put it... Coincidence? Perhaps Gabriel is the inspiration for Hermes? (<--- Tottally speculation) Just a thought! --Celticdude 04:59, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Angel Trivia

In different texts including the bible it describes angels being able to take on a human form without possession.
