Benjamin was a part of a flight of angels led by Ishim that included himself, Mirabel, Castiel and two other unnamed angels. In 1901, Ishim took his flight to Orono, Maine where he claimed that the angel Akobel had fathered a Nephilim with Lily Sunder and had to die along with his daughter, May. Confronting Akobel, after Mirabel blocked a blow aimed at Ishim with an angel blade, he holds Akobel so Castiel could recite his crime and punishment and Mirabel could kill him. Benjamin stayed outside with the rest of the flight as Ishim went to kill the Nephilim alone.
Over the next century, Castiel eventually left the flight to command his own. Like the rest of the angels, Benjamin was expelled from Heaven and lost use of his wings as a result. Like most of his flight, Benjamin retained his old vessel and communicated with her as they were more than vessel and angel, they were friends. While playing a game, Benjamin was attacked by Lily Sunder, who was out for revenge. Benjamin sent out a distress signal before being killed by Lily. Who left the body to be found by the bartender. He was the third member of his flight to die by her hands.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit

- Angelic Possession - Like all angels, Benjamin requires a vessel to walk the Earth and needs their permission. Unlike most angels, Benjamin's vessel was stated to both be his friend and to share everything with him.

- Invulnerability - As an angel, Benjamin is invulnerable to most forms of harm.
- Super Strength - As an angel, Benjamin is stronger than humans, monsters and most demons.
- Angel Blades - An angel blade could kill Benjamin.
- Enochian Magic - Benjamin's powers were ineffective against an Enochian Magic user and he could be overpowered by one without his wings.
- Benjamin is the second angel shown to interact with his vessel while possessing it. The first was Lucifer, while he was possessing Jefferson Rooney.
- While Benjamin's vessel is in fact female, Benjamin himself is always referred to by male pronouns. This was noted by Dean Winchester who asked if Benjamin was a chick. Castiel explained that "Benjamin is an angel. His vessel is a woman."
