Dean Winchester is a fictional character and one of the two main protagonists from The CW Television Network's Supernatural, portrayed by Jensen Ackles. He hunts demons, spirits and other supernatural creatures with his younger brother Sam.
Dean had tried to give him a good Christmas. In Season 5, it was revealed that the amulet can detect God's presence; Castiel borrows it from Dean to track God on Earth. After finding out in "Dark Side of the Moon" that God refuses to help in the fight against Lucifer, Castiel returns it to Dean, who drops it into a trash can.
In addition to the amulet, up until the fifth season episode "Changing Channels," Dean always wore a silver ring on his right ring finger. He sports a MTM-Special Ops Watch (The Black Patriot Model) and wears it in the fourth season with a Velcro band. He also has a small black tattoo on the upper left side of his chest; it is a protective plated pentagram with rays of the sun surrounding it. The symbol is said to ward off demonic possession.
Dean appears to be a fan of Jack Nicholson, and possibly watches Oprah. He tends to make light of some of his and Sam's adventures, and is known to use crude humor and make sexual innuendos. Despite being in excellent physical shape, Dean is known to have very bad eating habits. He is often shown enjoying greasy, fattening, or otherwise unhealthy food, especially cheeseburgers; this is in stark contrast to Sam, who often favors a healthier diet and usually expresses either amazement or disgust at the food Dean eats. Dean is terrified of flying, and claims that it is the reason why he drives everywhere.
Despite his working knowledge of the afterlife, Dean is skeptical towards believing in the "good aspects of religion," while he may believe in demons he claims angels don't exist as he only believes in what he can see. However he becomes more open minded after meeting Castiel.
Dean values his family and their safety more than anything else, even going so far as to kill the human host of a demon in order to save Sam's life, as well as selling his own soul to save Sam's life.
Sam Winchester:

Samuel "Sam" Winchester is a fictional character and one of the two main protagonists of The CW Television Network's Supernatural along with his older brother Dean. He is portrayed by Jared Padalecki.
Sam was born on May 2, 1983 to John and Mary Winchester in Lawrence, Kansas. He is the couple's second child, four years younger than his older brother Dean. He is named after his maternal grandfather, Samuel Campbell.
When Sam was only six months old on November 2, 1983, his mother Mary was killed in his nursery by the demon Azazel, whom his mother walked in on while he was standing by Sam's crib, doing something mysterious to him. Infant Sam is saved from the ensuing fire when his father takes him out of his crib and gives him to a four year old Dean, who then carries him outside while their father unsuccessfully tries to rescue their mother.
his father attempted to raise his children as demon hunters. However, during one of John's demon-hunting escapades, he got into trouble and vanished without a trace. This led Dean to approach his brother, Sam and ask him for help. Sam's interest in the field of demon hunting was further sparked upon the disappearance of his father, and the murder of his girlfriend, Jessica Moore, who was killed by his mother's perpetrator. Together, the brothers embarked on a mission to save their father, who occasionally sent them letters and maps that depicted the missions they needed to complete. Sam and Dean encountered numerous magical creatures and urban legends, until Sam began to experience episodes of recognition and once performed telekinesis.

As an angel, he possesses a number of superhuman abilities, including the ability to kill demons with his touch.

Despite also starring in the series Harper's Island, Beaver was able to maintain his quota for Supernatural's fourth season, with the role expanding even further for the fifth season's apocalyptic storyline.
