In the beginning, not much is really known about Ruby, a feisty blonde who is introduced in "The Magnificent Seven". We are introduced to Ruby as a blonde girl who follows/watches Sam Winchester. She seemingly focuses on Sam throughout the episode, coming close to approaching him once, but when he turns around, she disappears. Sam is left in complete shock, wondering about Ruby. At the end of the episode, when Sam and Dean are in peril, Ruby appears once again, this time wielding a dagger that allows her to kill the demons in a manner similar to that of the Colt.
Ruby then appears in the next episode, "The Kids Are Alright", with a seemingly less than significant role. Ruby still remains cryptic with her motives and does not reveal too much, except that she wants to help Sam. She informs Sam that there is work to be done, referring to the changelings present in the episode. She does not return until the end of the episode. He threatens to shoot her, but then lowers the gun, allowing Ruby to live and continue to "help him".
In "Malleus Maleficarum", Ruby reveals that she used to be a witch who sold her soul to an unknown demon before her death during the Plague. Later at the motel, Dean steps outside and notices a crackling of electricity all around the motel and the surrounding area. He then turns around and faces a much more pacified Ruby, who tells him that she can't save his soul. She adds that she still remembers what it's like to be human and says that she isn't the same as the other demons, though she wishes she were. Before Dean can actually respond to Ruby, he becomes distracted, and when he turns to talk to her, she has mysteriously vanished once again.
The next time Ruby makes an appearance is in "Jus in Bello". She appears halfway through the episode, breaking through a window which had a broken salt barrier. She offers to perform a spell that will destroy every demon within the area, including herself. However, because the spell requires a human heart, Sam and Dean don't allow her to perform it.
In the season finale, Ruby shows up at Bobby's house when summoned by Sam. Ruby is then asked to give the brothers her dagger so that they may hunt down Lilith. This plan, however, turns into more of a trap as the brothers capture Ruby, steal the dagger, and run to face Lilith in New Harmony, Indiana. During the brothers' campaign, Ruby somehow escapes and tracks them down, helping them find Lilith. The demon, however, escapes, and the trio run away from the Hell Hound tracking Dean down. Lilith, however, isn't far; she had secretly taken possession of Ruby's host.
When questioned about where Ruby is, Lilith responds, "She's been a bad girl, so I sent her very, very far away." The almighty demon lets in the Hell Hound, which attacks Dean. Lilith then proceeds to kill Sam, yet her powers stop working. Just before Sam can strike her with Ruby's dagger, the demon screeches and escapes through a vent in the black smog, leaving Ruby's host body limp. The fates of both Ruby and her host are currently unknown.
As a demon she can possess human hosts, granting the body of the host demonic abilities, which can only be seen in a possessed person. Similar to other demons, she exhibits enhanced strength and inhuman durability. She can also exhibit the psychic powers of most demons, although these psychic powers are yet to be seen. During her time as a witch she has gained extraordinary knowledge of certain spells that can vanquish demons, as well as methods of protecting against demons and undoing harmful magic. Ruby is also a skilled fighter; however, being demonic, she is vulnerable to most weaknesses of demons. It is interesting to note that Ruby does not fight like other demons. Instead, she tends to rely on conventional martial arts (punches, kicks, and using her dagger), as opposed to using "demonic" abilities such as telekinesis.
Ruby's dagger was featured prominently in the season three finale, "No Rest For The Wicked," and is currently in Sam's possession.
