"I’d said it before and meant it: Alive or undead, the love of my life was a badass.― Liz Meldon, Prey

My third Supernatural character tribute is to the Alpha Vampire - the very first vampire and father of them all. He is probably tens of thousands of years old. Finely dressed and an eloquently talking man, he is also a ruthless beast who spreads fear by his presence alone. He is one of my favorite villains of the show.  I wish he would have been in more episodes.

Enjoy the videos!

People are Strange by The Doors

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange


Quotes

When your kind first huddled around the fire, I was the thing in the dark. Now you think you can hurt me?
– Alpha Vampire, 6.07 Family Matters

Alpha Vampire: The boy with no soul. I've got big plans for you. It's amazing how that pesky, little soul gets in the way. But not for you. You will be the perfect... animal.

Alpha Vampire: Clever, clever boy.

Trivia and Minutiae 

Alpha Vampire: The thing about souls -- If you've got one, of course -- is they're predictable. You die, you go up or down. Where do my kind go?
Dean: All right, enough with the sermon, freak.
Alpha Vampire: I'm trying to answer the question. Now, when we 'freaks' die... where do we go? Not Heaven, not Hell. So?
Dean: Legoland?
Alpha Vampire: Little rusty on our Dante, boys?
Sam: Purgatory.
Legoland is a chain of Lego-themed theme parks all over the world.
Dante Alighieri was an Italian poet whose most famous work is The Divine Comedy, which chronicles Dante's travels through the afterlife. The second book of the Divine Comedy is about Purgatory. Dante/the Divine Comedy were previously referenced in the episode title for 5.10 Abandon All Hope....

Alpha Vampire: See you next season.
This is an example of breaking the fourth wall, indicating that the series, and the Alpha Vampire, will return in season 8. For similar references in other episodes, see Meta Episodes.

In the Alpha Vampire's mansion, at the entrance to the dining room can be seen the painting St. Michael slaying the dragon by Josse Lieferinxe which was also seen in the angel's Green Room in 4.22 "Lucifer Rising".

Editor's Note: As Supernatural website writers, our forum is talking about a show we all universally love.Consequently, I proposed to our staff that we specifically turn our attention to guest stars, characters, themes or moments in the show that might help under-represented groups see themselves in Supernatural, and be more acknowledged as valued members of our #SPNFamily. Perhaps our public showcase of actors' roles and diverse characters may also help the industry and the public (fans and non-fans) notice the contribution of under-represented groups to Supernatural's 15 year, record breaking run. Diversifying The WFB’s coverage is something we can do to not only support inclusion and tolerance, but go on record as being in favor of it and wanting to see more of it.
