... Moa'ah ... A kind of demonic afterbirth unique to this region of the American South. I have not seen its like since the Civil War battlegrounds. When angels and demons skirmished over the souls of the dead... You don't understand, Moa'ah is a footnote in the Luciferian apotheca — one of its most obscure calling cards. It shouldn't exist anymore. Its very presence here is a harbinger of the Apocalypse. And the Witness knows this. He wants us to know it.
Castiel about The Moa'ah
... Moa'ah's the animating force behind every bad kind of mojo you can imagine. Like the fuel that makes it go. Sounds like your dead Civil War soldier must've gotten some on him when he wore the noose.
Bobby about The Moa'ah

Moa'ah is a unique demonic breed of creature which is commonly found in Southern American. It's commonly found on land which supported massive carnage. According to Castiel, it was very common to be found on The Civil War battlefields where both sides (Union and Confederate) spilled their blood on fierce battles, but they somehow were wiped out to the point where it was no longer detected, even by the angels. Its very presence on a land is a signal of Apocalypse.

At some point, it was tied on Judas's Noose.

Physical Appearance[]

It appears in a completely black gooey liquid. However, it later started to transform to a tiny, cilia-like legs—dozens of them— which wiggled around it. With weird, deliberate speed, it's able to transform to scurry like a malformed cockroach. Even in its immature form, it's able to produce pitchful shriek that capable to disable a full grown man.

When fully unleashed, it appears like a giant swirl.
