This character journal is fictional. The writer is only doing this journal for fun, and has no affiliations with Jensen Ackles or the masterminds behind the awesome TV show, Supernatural.

Dean was born on January 24, 1979 to John and Mary Winchester. He was the couple's eldest child, and has one sibling, Sam, who is four years younger. Dean was named after his maternal grandmother Deanna Campbell (and possibly himself) while his brother was named after his maternal grandfather, Samuel Campbell.

Dean drives a black four-door 1967 Chevy Impala (given to him by his father), and is a fan of classic rock music and heavy metal. He always wears a metal amulet, given to him as a gift by his brother, on a long black cloth band necklace. In "A Very Supernatural Christmas," the necklace is revealed to have been a gift from Sam on Christmas Day, 1991. The amulet was originally meant for John, and obtained from Bobby Singer, but after their father failed to come home for Christmas (as often), Sam gave it to Dean instead, saying "Dad lied to me; I want you to have it," and because Dean had tried to give him a good Christmas. In addition to the amulet, Dean always wears a silver ring on his right ring finger. 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 to make sexual innuendos. Dean is terrified of flying, and claims that it is the reason why he drives everywhere. Despite his working knowledge of existence beyond death, he is skeptical towards religion.

Dean values his family and their safety more than anything else, even going so far as to kill a demon and its human host in order to save Sam's life, as well as selling his own soul to save Sam's life.

Information on Dean's baby, the Impala: Dean's trademark black 1967 Chevrolet Impala bears a Sedgwick County, Kansas (even though they are from Lawrence, Kansas) license plate KAZ 2Y5, a reference to Kansas, the Winchesters' home state, and 2005, the year the show premiered, was passed down to him by his father, though it is revealed in the episode "In the Beginning" that Dean picked the car out after he was sent back to 1973 by Castiel. It has been prominently featured on the series, beginning with the teaser of the pilot which shows John holding his two sons as he sits on the car and watches his house burn. Dean protects and cares for the Impala with almost the same devotion he shows to his family, and often talks to it as though it were human. ("Bloodlust" and "Simon Said") However, despite his great love for the car, Dean attacked the back end of the car halfway through fixing it in "Everybody Loves a Clown" due to stress from his father's secret about Sam. The Impala is nicknamed the "Metallicar" after the metal band Metallica, which featured prominently in the fan-favorite, 'driver picks the music/shotgun shuts his cake hole' scene, from the pilot. The actual song and band played in the opening scene is AC/DC's song "Back In Black."

In the episode "What Is And What Should Never Be", the number plate was changed from KAZ 2Y5 to CNK 80Q3 as the boys were hiding from the FBI. Dean loves his car to death, possibly even more than he cares about his own safety.

Personality: Dean is typically a ruthless and aggressive individual, especially when he is hunting, a task which he approaches euphorically. He passionately despises what he hunts, especially demons, and is prepared to kill without question more often than not, unlike his brother. However, despite these traits, Dean is very laid-back and well-disposed when not on the hunt, and he values the safety of his family and innocent civilians above all else, even his own life. Though on occasion he can be somewhat impulsive and/or arrogant, Dean is both extremely intelligent and competent, and the only situations in which he exhibits irrational behavior is when his family is threatened.

Dean enjoys the uncomplicated things in life, such as good food and television. He almost constantly displays some level of humorous behavior, and he frequently makes light of tense situations, often making inappropriate jokes or using sexual innuendo. He sometimes appears foolish due to this habit, but it has been entailed that this is merely his means of dealing with the stress of hunting. He attempts to be something of a womanizer, but has been in love with at least one woman. He has the capacity to become close with a woman, however, and it has been suggested on occasion throughout the series that this is what Dean truly desires, a normal life, with a wife, children and a regular job.

After he was extracted from Hell by Castiel, Dean began to exhibit noticeable anxiety and experience chronic, abominable nightmares of his experience there, apparently every time he closes his eyes. He at first denied remembering anything of his time in Hell, but eventually he confessed to his brother that he did in fact remember every detail, but rejected any discussion about it, either not wishing to burden his brother with his pain or not wanting to live over the details of the "indescribable things" he saw.

It is later revealed he not only saw terrible things, but was tortured (in Hell time) for around forty years. However, he also states, despite his strength to last thirty years without torturing other souls so as to escape the torment himself, he finally broke down and took on the role of torturer himself, torturing countless souls, before he was resurrected by Castiel. Dean's experience in Hell left a profound mark on him. He exhibits extreme grief and guilt, both for his actions and for the fact that he eventually gave in. Due to this, he believes he was unworthy of rescue. He has also explained to his brother that he wishes he couldn't feel anything, as the sorrow he feels is so overwhelming.

Abilities and Skills: Dean possesses excellent combat and hunting prowess; comprehensively trained by his father from early childhood as a paranormal investigator and hunter of the supernatural, he is established throughout the series as an extremely dangerous individual, and he is more than capable of taking a stand against even the most formidable of opponents, such as demons and vampires.

Dean is well-versed with multiple types of firearms; he prefers his Colt 1911 and sawed-off shotgun, but is proficient with most other weapons he might acquire. An expert marksman, he seldom misses his intended target and can efficiently put down anything vulnerable to bullets.

Dean is adept with martial arts and knife fighting as well; he has subdued several human assailants with ease in multiple episodes and bested physically more powerful creatures, often unarmed or equipped with only a blade. In "Nightshifter", he killed a shapeshifter armed with a simple silver letter opener. In "Fresh Blood," he managed to subdue a vampire long enough to inject her with a shot of 'dead man's blood.' In "The Magnificent Seven", he fought and held off several demons by himself, armed only with a flask of holy water.

Dean is also a proficient tracker and possesses prudent tactical skills and an instinctive ability to 'read' behavioral characteristics and manipulate people. Highly resourceful, he frequently utilizes improvised weapons and explosive devices; in "Croatoan," he demonstrated knowledge in chemistry, constructing Molotov cocktails and improvised explosive devices, and in "Phantom Traveler", he revealed knowledge of electronics and reverse engineering, having built an electromagnetic field detector from an old Walkman radio.

Dean also possesses extensive knowledge of the supernatural and mythology. He is versed with how police, fire departments and various government agencies (FBI, CDC) typically operate and conduct investigations, and knows how to both impersonate and evade them effectively. An accomplished mechanic, he maintains his Impala in top condition and has maintained an intimate knowledge of automobiles and engines since childhood.

Dean is a virtuoso of escape, evasion and silent movement, when the situation requires subtly and stealth. Lastly, he is also alarmingly skillful in many areas frowned upon by the law; lock picking, breaking into security systems (not so much computers, which often falls to Sam), car jacking and gaining an 'advantageous purchase' comes naturally to him.

Weapons: Dean tends to use a chromed Colt 1911 with ivory grips, which John is seen using in a flashback, and also uses a sawed-off double barrel shotgun when he needs extra firepower. He has also been seen with an MSG3 sniper rifle in "Simon Said." Dean is shown to possess a large machete in "Dead Man's Blood", and has used a knife in several episodes. He also is shown to possess a Desert Eagle loaded with wrought iron in the episode "Something Wicked." He also possesses tazers which he and Sam used in the start of "Faith", when he electrocuted himself. When weapons are scarce and Dean is in a dangerous situation, he uses hand-to-hand combat or whatever is available as a weapon.
