They -- They're not dead. They're with the nest. We... take a harvest. Every few years, grab a couple kids, raise them up, feed them right, juice them. We don't do fast food.
— One of the vampires explaining the group's MO
in Carry On

These six unnamed vampires are responsible for the abduction, raising and juicing of young children every few years starting in at least 1986.

History[]

At some point by 1986, every few years, these vampires begin attacking families that are living outside of towns and are isolated and with kids usually between the ages of five and ten. Wearing masks, the vampires attack the adults, stabbing one with a blade and draining them before ripping out the tongue of the other, leaving them alive. The vampires then harvest the kids, kidnapping them, raising them up right, feeding them and then eventually juicing the kids, presumably feeding upon them.

In 1986, the vampires hit the towns of Akron, Canton and East Sparta along Route 77 in Ohio. The string of attacks draws the attention of hunter John Winchester who is able to establish their pattern, but can't catch the vampires who disappear. John records information on the hunt in his journal, including a drawing a witness made of the culprits' masks.

Over the next thirty-nine years, the vampires continue their harvesting, eventually allowing Jenny to join them at some point after the destruction of Luther's nest.

In 2025[1], the vampires return to their Ohio hunting grounds from 1986, targeting a family in Akron. The vampires choose the family of a man named Lyle, ringing his doorbell to get his attention. As Lyle dismisses it as a prank, one of the vampires stabs him through the back and chases his wife and sons while the other vampire drains Lyle of his blood. Cornering Lyle's wife outside of the bedroom that the children are hiding in, the vampire rips out her tongue and searches the bedroom for the kids. Finding them hiding under a bed, the vampire abducts them both.

The next morning, Sam and Dean Winchester investigate the case after learning of the strange death of Lyle. After the sergeant shows the Winchesters the wife's drawing of the vampires' masks, Sam and Dean recognize it from their father's journal and look up the entry on the case in 1986. Dean initially suspects evil mimes before Sam points out that it's far more likely to be vampires. Based on the pattern John established, the Winchesters determine that the vampires will most likely target a family in Canton next that is living outside of town, isolated and with kids usually between the ages of five and ten.

That night, two of the vampires target the house of a family that matches their MO. As they begin to approach the house, one is decapitated from behind by Dean with a machete. As the other vampire turns on Dean, Sam shoots him in the leg and head with dead man's blood bullets, knocking the vampire unconscious. Dean removes the mask as the vampire wakes up and asks what they hit him with. Sam explains that it was bullet soaked in dead man's blood and Dean asks about the kids that the vampires had kidnapped a couple of nights before, but the vampire is just amused, asking if they will let him go if he tells them. Dean states that if the vampire cooperates, he gets to die quickly by Dean's machete, but if he refuses, Sam will use a tiny knife to slowly and painfully decapitate him. After Dean threatens to have Sam use a spoon if the kids are dead, the vampire finally gives in and explains to the Winchesters how they harvest a couple of kids every few years, raise them up, feed them right and "juice them," commenting that the vampires don't do fast food. Sam demands to know where the nest is and the vampire directs Sam and Dean to its location in an old barn before Dean kills him.

Making their way through the nest, Sam and Dean are observed by the vampires who are hidden around the barn. The two find the kids locked in a small room and send them to safety as they turn around and are faced by the surviving four vampires. The hunters begin fighting two vampires each with Sam and Dean both managing to kill one vampire apiece. However, Sam is tackled to the ground by the largest vampire and knocked unconscious before the vampire grabs Dean from behind and he and the other vampire pin the hunter to the ground.

At that moment, Jenny approaches and Dean recognizes her from their encounter nineteen years before. Yanked to his feet by the vampires and noticing Sam's hand inching its way towards his machete, Dean comments on how he and Jenny had tried to kill each other back in the day and how their meeting again is so weird. Dean questions if Jenny is the nest leader, but she tells him that she just called dibs. As Jenny prepares to attack Dean, she is decapitated from behind by Sam.

The Winchesters resume fighting the remaining two vampires with Sam eventually shoving his opponent backwards and then decapitating him when the vampire moves to attack again. As Dean charges the largest vampire, the vampire lifts Dean off the ground and rushes him backwards, impaling Dean on a piece of rebar sticking out of a wooden post. Dean struggles to hold the vampire back before Sam decapitates him, killing the last of the vampires. However, Dean is left mortally wounded and dies shortly thereafter for the last time before a grieving Sam brings the rescued kids home.

Powers and Abilities[]

They possessed all of the abilities of regular vampires.

  • Super Strength - As vampires, they possessed greater strength than a normal human. During the fight with Sam and Dean Winchester, they overpower the two experienced hunters with one lifting Dean off his feet and impaling him on a metal spike at the end of the fight and the same one throwing Sam around as well.
  • Fangs - Vampires possess a set of retractable fangs. Their teeth are superhumanly strong and can rip open a human's neck and leave huge bite marks on the corpse of the victim it has fed on.
  • Super Speed - As vampires, their speed was greater than a regular human.
  • Super Agility - Vampires possess amazing agility. They can climb up walls and jump off buildings without hurting themselves.
  • Super Senses - Vampires have extremely keen senses that are superior to those of humans. They can see in the dark, hear a human's heart beat, and possess an enhanced sense of smell. A vampire can track a human's blood over long distances.
  • Immortality - Vampires can potentially live forever. They can't grow old and don't acquire conventional diseases that affect humans.
  • Invulnerability - Vampires can not be killed by conventional methods, such as stab wounds or gunshots. However, Sam and Dean tell one vampire that he will feel all of the pain that is caused as Sam slowly decapitates him if he refuses to cooperate.
  • Regeneration - As long as they have enough human blood, vampires can heal any wound short of amputation.
  • Super Stamina - Vampires possess enhanced stamina.
