Cyrus Dorian was a vengeful ghost. In his life he was a ruthless and racist man, who returned after death to take revenge on the people who helped in his deserved death.
Cyrus Dorian dated Cassie Robinson's mother before she left him for Martin Robinson. Enraged, Cyrus burnt down the church they were to be married in, killing the children's choir. In the 1960s, Cyrus then attacked Martin but Martin fought back and killed him. Two of Martin's friends, Clayton Solmes and Jimmy Anderson, helped him cover up the murder. They disposed of his body and truck in a swamp. Harold Todd, a young deputy at the time, knew of the crime, but covered it up because he knew what Cyrus had done to the church choir and that he was beating Martin when he was killed. He was reawakened, when his family's house was knocked down, and began taking revenge on those who helped cause and cover up his death. Sam and Dean destroy Cyrus's ghost by tricking it into entering the Hallowed Ground of the Church he burned down.
