You know, I've... I've been here for a very long time. And I remember many things.
|~ Castiel praying to God|
Castiel, often shortened to Cas, is a powerful angel of the Lord who was responsible for saving Dean Winchester from Hell on the archangels' command. It was his job to help prevent Lilith from breaking the 66 Seals that, once broken, would release Lucifer from his cage in Hell. Once Castiel learned that the angels wished to free Lucifer anyway, he defied his angelic brethren and died trying to help Dean prevent Sam Winchester from breaking the last seal.
After Raphael killed him, Castiel was resurrected by God and joined Sam, Dean, and Bobby Singer in a quest to stop both Heaven and Hell to prevent the brothers from becoming the vessels of Michael and Lucifer. When the Apocalypse was averted, he was again resurrected with new powers, being promoted to Seraph. He then started a civil war in Heaven to prevent Raphael from restarting the Apocalypse, Thinking a demon could not outsmart him, Castiel teamed up with Crowley to claim the souls of Purgatory. He ended up betraying Crowley and absorbed all the souls, resulting in his powers reaching the level that is much higher than an archangel, but at a high price: the powers that the evil souls granted him had warped Castiel's mind, causing him to proclaim himself as the new God.
Castiel's legacy has seemed to have become legendary among angels and demons alike, as many recognize him as the only angel who defied God's rules and cooperated with humans on his own decision, which he is either loathed or respected for. He is also the only angel to have been killed and been resurrected multiple times. He is the only known angel who has repeatedly been resurrected by God so he could help Sam and Dean Winchester.

Attack Potency: Town level (According to Uriel, he and Castiel could have obliterated a town. An angel's mere cries of pain can produce ripple effects of strange incidents; Samandriel, a seemingly lesser angel, created destructive tornadoes across Nabraska while being tortured by Crowley. Should be superior to weak angels such as Hael, and could overpower Zachariah's men even after falling from Heaven) | Town level (Can easily overpower groups of regular angels such as Duma and her henchmen, and was capable of outmatching Eremiel in a fight and throwing him across a room. Overpowered both Efram and Jonah while bound in cuffs and mentally weakened by a spell. Fought against, and defeated Kabaiel, a Grigori, and could manhandle his Apocalypse World counterpart without effort, the latter being a version of himself who never became a Seraphim or fell from Heaven. Tossed aside a Leviathan with telekinesis, and was able to fight off a group of them by catching them off-guard, though he was forced to run away afterwards) | At least Town level (Immensely more powerful than his weakened self, possessing his complete grace alongside unbroken wings), possibly City level (Implied to be capable of creating thunderstorms), far higher when empowered by souls (Strengthened himself with 50,000 Human Souls as part of a deal with Crowley, each of which was compared to a nuclear reactor. Could briefly banish Raphael from Heaven with a blast of white light, though he was still no match for the Archangel in direct combat). At least Multi-Galaxy level, possibly Universe level with Heaven's Weaponry (Gained possession of all the weapons of Heaven, whose collective power was enough to strike fear in Raphael and cause him to flee) | Universe level (Obliterated Raphael with a snap of fingers, and claimed to be capable of destroying Hell if he so desired. The sheer power of the souls absorbed by him was causing his vessel to rapidly melt over a span of days, whereas it was later shown to be able to hold even beings as powerful as Lucifer for months before starting to show negligible signs of decay)
