In Heaven I have six wings and four faces, one of which is a lion.
Seraphs are a higher class of angel, above normal angels such as Uriel and Joshua. Zachariahtells Dean and Sam Winchester that he has four faces and six wings in his true form, suggesting that he may be a Seraph.
Castiel also became a Seraph after God resurrected him from the dead when Lucifer killed him in 5.22 Swan Song. This is later confirmed when Castiel refers to himself as a Seraph in 8.05 Blood Brother.
Seraph Angels In Lore
A Seraph is a type of angel mentioned in both the Hebrew Bible and in the Christian ranks of angels Source.
“… I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and His train filled the Hekhal (sanctuary). Above Him stood the Seraphim; each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.”
– , Isaiah (6: 1-3)
The Seraphim make their first Christian appearance in the Book of Revelation iv. 6-8, where they are forever in God’s presence and praising Him constantly: “Day and night they never stop saying: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.'”
The Seraphim and the Cherubim are, in Christian theology, two separate types of angels. The descriptions of the Seraphim, Cherubim and Ophanim are often similar, but still distinguishable.
Seraph in Lore
In Judaic and Christian texts, Seraph are celestial beings, or angels in some traditions. Their name means “burning ones”.
I so wanted to believe that Castiel was more than a bog standard boring angel. On the forum we were discussing arch-angels and Cas as a Seraph came up, so decided to give super-wiki a look to find out more. God had bought Cas back more than once and each time and in particular Swan Song his juices were stronger and more powerful. So I am relieved to think my nagging mind came through in the end. Cas later himself clarified the name in 8. o5 Blood Brother …. So what are we to learn about Cas now he’s more jucified and super powered up. Can poor Jimmy’s vessel if he’s still in there, be aware of Castiels new found power. But once he gets his grace back during season 9 will his power return to his older power? Can that amount of power be restored naturally, as it was before? Will Cas be affected once he gets his power back? God I think must have had a lot of respect for Cas to bring him back more powerful. There must have been a reason behind why he juiced Cas up and promoted him? Or was it so plain sailing? What had Cas done to earn his stripes?
Bella would love to no how you really feel about Cas, and the wrongs that he’s done during his time on earth? Do you feel he earn’t extra power, and status? How will Cas fair without his power now he’s human, will it make a big difference. Will the big man up stairs finally make an appearance knowing his angels have fallen and need his help. Will God finally show his true colours, and put things right. Or will Cas be the one to hedge his bets and deliver his flock home safely. Type away …..
