Angel "Angel Broody Yoda"
Angel the human was born in 1727 with the name Liam. Angel the vampire was "born" in 1753, making him 246 or 247 in vamp years (these are the dates given on Angel's tombstone in flashbacks of the Angel episode "The Prodigal"). Angel was a bit of a rogue, and a drinker as well. He was, in fact, out drinking one night when he encountered Darla, who turned him into a vampire. In 1860, he met Drusilla, killed her family, drove her mad, and then turned her into a vampire. In 1898, he killed the daughter of a Romany (Gypsy) tribe, and the tribe cursed him by restoring his soul; from then on he suffered with guilt over the acts he had committed as a vampire. He ended up in New York city in the 1990s, where a "good" demon, Whistler, found him, took him to LA, and showed him a girl: Buffy. Angel decided to help the Slayer, eventually growing close to her and becoming a useful ally to the Scooby Gang. Buffy and Angel fell in love, and when they made love on Buffy's seventeenth birthday, Angel lost his soul again. It turned out the curse was to be removed if Angel ever experienced a moment of true happiness. Angelus (his vampiric name) wreaked havoc on Buffy and the gang, until Willow succeeded with the spell that would give him his soul back — too late; Angel had awakened Acathla, who would suck the world into hell. To prevent it, Buffy had to send Angel to hell. A few months later Angel was returned to earth, though not through his own efforts. He and Buffy eventually got back together, but Angel eventually realized that she could not live life to her full potential with him (only going out at night, not being able to have children, etc.). So, for Buffy's own sake, Angel broke up with her and left town. He moved to Los Angeles, helping the helpless and fighting demons with the help of Cordelia Wesley Charles Gunn and Winifred Berkle. After joining forces with his enemy Wolfram and Hart, Angel lost everyone he loved in one last battle against hell. He has currently restarted Angel Investigation with Kalyani Montgomery, Jake Santiago, and Cordelia Chase.

He is over 1,100 years old as he was born somewhere in Scandinavia during the Viking age. As a child he played by the North Sea, which would mean that he grew up in Denmark or Norway (the two Scandinavian countries which border the North Sea). According to Pam, he has a farm in Öland (Sweden). Eric speaks Swedish and refers to old Swedish music. He owns the vampire bar Fangtasia in Shreveport, Louisiana. He is the maker of Pam as well as Scarlett.
Dean Winchester was born on January 24, 1979 to John and Mary Winchester in Lawrence, Kansas. He is the couple's first child, four years older than his younger brother Sam. He is named after his maternal grandmother, Deanna Campbell. When he was only four years old on November 2, 1983, his mother Mary was killed in Sam's nursery by the demon Azazel. Infant Sam is saved by the ensuing fire when his father takes him out of his crib and gives him to Dean, who then carries him outside while their father unsuccessfully tries to rescue their mother. After that night Dean has felt responsible for Sam, and was always given the job to take care of him while they were growing up. Dean's father John raised him and Sam as hunters of the supernatural. During Dean's childhood John would be away "hunting" a week or two at a time. John basically told Dean that his little brother's life was in his hands, and the term "Watch out for Sammy" became his life.
