Amara *Emily Swallow, Gracyn Shinyei (Young Amara), Yasmeene Lily-elle Ball (Tween Amara), Samantha Isler (Teenage Amara)
People have different opinions what they like and don't like. For me the story of the Darkness and Amara has been interesting from the start. As I am a graphic designer that is interested in history, mythology, theology, architecting and cloth designing, I envision her like a goddess. I know she has not been portrayed to be a goddess but her brother is God and she is something that the human kind has never seen. Not knowing a better word for her, she is a goddess in my book. She took a human vessel which means she might start to know feelings. She grew up fast from a baby to a grown woman and it shows in her clothes and how she looks. Amara needed to take all the information in. She had a huge book to study and she bloomed to an all powerful goddess.
The goddesses have been shown the same throughout all of Supernatural - powerful and not caring about humans. In a way, Amara does seem to care, though, and her goddess dress style is simpler implying that she is that powerful - she could wipe out the other goddesses with a flick of her wrist. I talked about her dressing style more in here with examples. Amara doesn't need to pretend anything, but still she is really a child in how she sees the world and her brother. She is a kick-ass woman just because she is the most powerful being after God or hell, maybe even an equal. Maybe the Winchesters need to save the vessel and Amara turns back to a baby. How they will defeat the Darkness and save the innocent vessel is the main question...or is that even how the story ends?

He was so threatened by me, fearful that I would make a more perfect creation than he, so he exiled me. Virtually erased me. Passed on stories that I was a threat." – O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Billie *Lisa Berry
I can't even describe how remarkable Billie's character was in my eyes. She had the balls to get Sam scared, which made the viewer scared for the Winchesters. It is for sure now that they better not die because that outcome will be the end of them. Billie didn't need to say much to make a statement or show her strength. She just is. Did I mention she has an incredible singing voice too? Well, she has. Also the actress that played her is a Supernatural fan and watches the show too (little backround knowledge for you there). I do hope we see more of her and she keeps her cool. It takes a lot to make such a big impression on the fandom by only being in one episode. Her entrance was almost as memorable as the one for Death.
"O death, o death, o death won't you spare me over another year? Oh, what is this that I can't see with ice-cold hands taking hold of me? When God is gone and the devil takes hold who'll have mercy on your soul?”Known status: Alive and kicking
"You and Dean . . . Dying and coming back again and again. The old death thought it was funny. But now there's one hard, fast rule in this universe. What lives . . . dies. So the next time you or your brother bite it, well, you're not going to Heaven . . . Or Hell. One of us -- and, Lord, I hope it's me -- we're gonna make a mistake and toss you out into the Empty. And nothing comes back from that. I know you're dying. I can feel it. You're unclean in the biblical sense. So I'll be seeing you again, Sam . . . Seeing you real soon. Name's Billie, by the way." – 11.02 Form and Void

Josie Sands *Alaina Huffman
We didn't see much of the real Josie but the little time we could spend with her she had wit, snark and she was full of heart. She only wanted to do the right thing and in my eyes she was more of a hunter than a Woman of Letters. She also wanted to save her co-worker that had a wife and family from the possession. Little did she know that her decission would still result in him being killed. That doesn't make her sacrifice mean any less. Alaina was great both as Josie and Abaddon so I hope we might see Josie again in flashbacks or something else.

One time guests should not qualify, nor should bit-players (such as the angel Rachel in season 6, and that demon Sam & Ruby tortured for blood that would eat babies). Otherwise, the category is too wide open and subjective.
Thanks for reading.
