IN MYTHOLOGY
There is a St. Zachariah in the Christian canon. He was the father of John the Baptist and a priest in the temple of Jerusalem. He was a cousin to the Virgin Mary. Before his son John was born, Zachariah had a vision of an angel visiting to tell him about the birth. Zachariah was struck dumb until the birth. In some stories, it is told that Zachariah was killed in the temple when refused to King Herod tell where his son was hiding.

There was also a Propher Zachariah, ho actually wrote of occurences that reveal the hierarchy and politics of the angels. In Zach 2: 3-5, he writes about how onr angel's boss orders him to visit Zachariah again: "And behold, the angel that talked with me went forth and another angel went out to meet him, and said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about."

IN SUPERNATURAL
Zachariah first appears as alter-ego Dean Smith's boss in It's a Terrible Life. At the end of that episode, as the boys struggle to figure out what's real and why they feel like they are in a dream (or nightmare...Dean: "God, am I hungry!"), Zachariah reveals himself as an angel. Form that first encounter, it's all too apparent how manipulative and sneaky he is!

We next see Zach at the end of The Monster at the End of This Book, sitting in Chuck's living room as Chuck wakes from a nightmare. He again proves he's pulling the strings by telling Chuck there's nothing he can do about what he saw--he can't warn the boys, he can't kill himself ("We'd only bring you back")--all he can do is what he always does: write.

Finally, in Lucifer Rising, Zach takes a more active role, revealing himself as above the rank of Castiel by calling the shots. He basically holds Dean in a "green room," as he calls it, until it's time for him to act. But what he's really doing is preventing Dean from joining Sam. At the end of the episode, he finally reveals that Sam was meant all along to finish breaking the seals, and dean is meant for something else...to stop Lucifer later on.

In season 5, we will see Zach again...and the boys (especially Dean) are not happy about that. Take a look at the preview, and stay tuned for more about Zachariah.

QUOTES AND TRIVIA

ZACH'S QUOTES
  • "All I'm saying is, it's how you look at it. Most folks live and die without moving anything more than the dirt it takes to bury them. You get to change things, save people, maybe even the world. All the while you drive a classic car and fornicate with women. This isn't a curse, it's a gift. So for God's sakes, Dean, quit whining about it. Look around: there are plenty of fates worse than yours. So you with me? You want to go steam yourself another latte, or are you ready to stand up and be who you really are?"
  • "You'll do everything you're destined to do, all of it. But I know, I know, you're not strong enough, you're scared, you got daddy issues, you can't do it, right?"
  • "No? How about Ginger from Season 2 of Gilligan's Island? You've do have a thing for her, don't you?"
  • "Well, can't make an omelet without cracking a few eggs. In this case, truckloads of eggs, but you get the picture."
  • "When you've won, your rewards will be unimaginable. Peace, happiness, two virgins and 70 sluts!"
ZACHS TRIVIA
By some accounts, I guess Zachariah COULD be considered an archangel.

  • Early church documents names the archangels as Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Chamuel, Jophiel, and Zadkiel.
  • In Jewish Canon, they are named as Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Raguel, Zerachiel and Remiel.
  • The Eastern Orthodoxy tradition venerates Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Selaphiel, Jegudiel, and Barachiel.
  • Another Catholic variation lists them corresponding to the days of the week as: St Michael (Sunday), St Gabriel (Monday), St Raphael (Tuesday), St Uriel (Wednesday), St Sealtiel (or sometimes Metatron) (Thursday), St Jegudiel, (Friday), and St Barachiel (Saturday).

CHARACTER NAME'S DEFINING MOMENTS

SEASON EPISODE WHAT HAPPENED?

It's a Terrible Life Zachariah makes his first appearance

Lucifer Rising Zachariah finally comes clean and admits to Dean that he and Sam were never meant to stop the apocalypse. It's going to happen--a done deal--and he and his camp want it that way. He intimates that Sam has a role to play in bringing it on, and then he tells Dean there is still a big role for him to play...that he will stop Lucifer.












5
Point of No Return
Dean has decided to say yes to Michael, and Zachariah begins summoning him. But Dean begins to talk about his "conditions" and finally pulls out Castiel's angel sword and plunges right through Zach's chin into his skull, killing the archangel.

....Zach was able to send Dean to the future in "The End," yet he couldn't forsee his own death at the hands of Dean a few months later? Interesting.... maybe there's hope for team FREE WILL after all! :)

Zachariah himself said he had 6 wings and 4 faces "One of which is a lion" in "Dark Side of the Moon". This information points towards him being a Cherubim. "The biblical prophet Ezekiel describes the cherubim as a tetrad of living creatures, each having four faces: of a lion, an ox, a griffin vulture, and a man. They are said to have the stature and hands of a man, the feet of a calf, and four wings. Two of the wings extended upward, meeting above and sustaining the throne of God; while the other two stretched downward and covered the creatures themselves." There is an illustration however which shows a cherub as having 6 wings. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/89/Tetramorph_meteora.jpg I can't find much research on whether any of the Cherubim were ever specifically named.
