This article is about a subject that is from official sources but is not considered canon.
Sam: "I remembered how we killed the Lord of the Hunt by stabbing it with its own antlers... And we'd already seen how the gods could only be killed by their own weapons."
Dean: "So you figured Renee was still part of the gods she created—or they were a part of her—so she could be our weapon this time. Makes sense."
The Lord of the Hunt is the name given to an ancient god by Julie Underwood that granted her and her family superhuman abilities.
No much is known about the deity, except that it was hunted by the Winchesters a long time ago and was killed.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
As a god, the Lord of the Hunt once possessed powerful abilities, but was greatly weakened by age and starvation when the Winchesters met him.
- Immortality - As a god, he was tens of thousands of years old, possibly even older. Its exact age in unknown.
- Invulnerability - As a god, he was invulnerable to most forms of harm. Even in his weakened state, the Lord of the Hunt retained his invulnerability and knives to the heart caused him no injury.
- Absorption - The Lord of the Hunt absorbed his prey into himself to feast on their life force. When he did so, he left nothing of them behind.
- Power Granting - The Lord of the Hunt can grant superhuman abilities to those who sacrifice to him. The amount of power depends on the amount of energy he has absorbed from the sacrifices. To the Underwoods, after being fed many animals over a year and a half period of time and after being promised two strong young men as future sacrifices, he was able to give superhuman strength, speed, endurance and regenerative abilities enabling them to recover quickly from usually fatal injuries.
- Starvation - After an unknown but presumably long period of starvation, he was left in a severely weakened and emaciated state.
- His Antlers - Dean killed him by stabbing him with one of his own antlers.
- Supernatural: Mythmaker (flashback and mentioned only)
- When recounting their experience, they also refer to killing gods with their own weaponry. This refers to the Season 8 episode Remember the Titans, where Prometheus killed Zeus using Artemis's weapon.
- Coincidentally, this novel also feature Greek deities as the antagonists, similar to that of the episode.
- Note that Artemis is also the Hunter Goddess of Greek Pantheon.
