This article is about a subject that is from official sources but is not considered canon.

Hel is the Norse Goddess of death that is featured in Supernatural: Carved in Flesh. She called herself as a "death" when Dean said that she was not Death. She proclaimed herself as Death's "little sister".


She was described as a woman with "Marble-white skin who wore the shadows around her like a cloak of night. Her eyes were solid obsidian, and her lips the bright red of arterial spray. She was the most beautiful being, male or female, that Catherine had ever seen".

Hel was summoned by Conrad Dippel (the original inspiration for Dr.Frankenstein) and she manifested in the body of Catherine Luss' dead teenage daughter Bekah. She obviously has the appearance of a teenager in spite of being thousands of years old.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Being a Pagan Deity and a goddess of death, Hel was extremely powerful. A reaper in the book admitted that Hel was way stronger than him. 

  • Immortality - As a deity, Hel was not subject to old age or natural death, even when she was stabbed through the head, ripped to bits, sliced, chopped up and cremated she wasn't dead just trapped.
  • Invulnerability - Hel could not be harmed by conventional weapons through stakes can harm but not kill her as can fire but even when she was staked through the head, chopped up and burnt she didn't die, but she was permanently trapped.
  • Possession- Quite unique among deities, Hel needed a human host to be on Earth. However, she could possess the dead.
  • Superhuman Strength - Hel possesses superhuman strength.


  • Fire - Since her domain (Niflheim) was said be icy cold and she thrived in it, the brothers deduced that the opposite of cold i.e., Heat/Fire could at least harm her. 
  • Incapacitation - Dr. Catherine pretended to join her "daughter" and impaled her in the head severing her brain's connections to the rest of the body. The Winchesters then chopped the body, burned the parts and buried them in various places so that Hel would be trapped forever in the body and could never be pieced together.
