According to [[Castiel]], they are selected primarily by high-ranking [[angels]] or [[archangels]]. They speak of events to come, on instruction from [[Heaven]]. Archangels are tied to prophets, acting as their protectors when the need arises - each prophet has an archangel "tethered to them." Any presence of danger will cause intervention from his or her archangel, even if that intervention goes against what a prophet has prophesied. However, by the time [[Kevin Tran]] is revealed as a prophet, the archangels [[Michael]] and [[Lucifer]] are trapped in [[Lucifer's Cage|the Cage]] and [[Gabriel]] and [[Raphael]] are dead. Some powerful beings like [[Zachariah]] can implant [[prophecy]], whether it be false or true, into a prophet's mind, as he demonstrated on [[God|Chuck Shurley]].

Castiel claimed that [[Whore of Babylon|Leah]] is not a prophet because he has every prophet's name seared into his brain, and it is later shown that this is inherent in all angels when [[Crowley]] tortured [[Samandriel]] in order to gain information concerning the names of the current prophets. According to Castiel, only one prophet may be active at a time. When the active prophet dies, another one is awakened and replaces the previous prophet. The entire line of succession of prophets up to the future is known to all angels, with their names have been written by Metatron; however, they do not know the names of prophets that have yet to be born.

To date, Kevin Tran never showed the capability to prophesy or to see events currently taking place. His abilities were limited to deciphering [[the Word of God]]. Whether this indicates that different prophets have different functions, or that the ability of prophets has since changed the moment the [[Apocalypse]] was averted is yet to be explained.

[[Metatron]], who later planned on taking charge of Heaven, ended the prophet line, ensuring no new prophet would be called upon Kevin Tran's death. This is undone by the time the Darkness arrives, as a new prophet named Donatello awakes. In ''[[Good Intentions]]'', [[Castiel]] confirms that once again if a Prophet dies, a new Prophet will be called.
