Jump to: navigation, search

While not named on Supernatural, the trident or pitchfork appears on a number of occasions as a symbol of Lucifer and of Hell. When drawn with 3 lines through it, it can prevent a demon from de-possessing its human meatsuit, as well as act as a warding sigil.

Crowley: This bit of carving will tie our friend here down. No zapping off, no smoking out - locked in the meatsuit.
