This shapeshifter was part of the plan to build an army of shapeshifters per the Alpha Shapeshifter and Eve's orders. To this end, he fathered several babies by taking the form of the husbands of various families and then having sex with the mothers, impregnating them. These babies included Bobby John. When the babies were six months old, using a disguise with Harper Caine Security to get past their alarm systems, the shapeshifter went around collecting them and killing the parents who were raising the baby, thus drawing the attention of Samuel Campbell, who sends Sam to investigate.
Samuel found the connection with the security company and that Bobby John's parents were still alive with their baby so Sam went to investigate and finds the shapeshifter with the parents dead and Bobby John hidden in the laundry room. Sam drives off the shapeshifter and gets Bobby John. Disguising himself as a woman customer at a grocery store, the shapeshifter pretends to help Sam and Dean with a fussy Bobby John, but Dean realizes what he is from his retinal flare in a security camera and threatens him to get Bobby John back. The shapeshifter takes Bobby John and runs, but the Winchesters manage to get him back. Before Dean can kill him, the shapeshifter calls a store manager for help and Dean is forced to run.
While Sam and Dean escape with the baby, the shapeshifter sees the license plate of Sam's car as they go. The shapeshifter then kills a police officer, takes his form and uses his job to track Sam's car. Arriving at the motel Sam and Dean are staying at just after they realize that Bobby John is a shapeshifter, Bobby John's father breaks into the room and fights with Dean for Bobby John, telling Dean the baby belongs with him and his father, the Alpha Shapeshifter. Eventually, Sam arrives and shoots the shapeshifter through the heart, killing him, but the Alpha Shapeshifter later manages to get Bobby John anyway.
