Ruby is a fictional character on The CW Television Network's Supernatural portrayed by Katie Cassidy and Genevieve Cortese. Created by the writers in order to expand on the characterization of demons within the series, she first appears in the third season, rescuing Sam and Dean Winchester, and continues to assist them throughout the season. By the fourth season, she has won Sam's trust and begins training him to kill demons with his powers, though Dean remains fearful of ulterior motives. Due to budgetary reasons, Katie Cassidy was replaced by Genevieve Cortese after the third season, and the character departs the series at the end of the fourth season. Though the fans reacted negatively towards the character at first, Cortese and creator Eric Kripke felt that they became more accepting of her as the fourth season progressed.
In the beginning, not much is known about Ruby, a mysterious blonde first seen in the third season episode "The Magnificent Seven". She trails hunter Sam Winchester throughout the episode, eventually coming to his rescue when he is in danger of being killed by Pride and two other demonic Sins. As opposed to using traditional demonic abilities such as telekinesis, she instead relies on conventional martial arts and her demon-killing knife in the fight. Ruby then appears in the next episode, "The Kids Are Alright", and informs Sam there is work to be done, referring to the changelings present in the episode. She does not return until the end of the episode, whereupon Sam demands she tell him who she is. She finally relents, revealing herself to be a demon. Sam threatens to shoot her, but then decides to let her live and continue to "help him". Ruby does so in "Sin City", helping hunter Bobby Singer to restore power to the Colt.
It is revealed in "Malleus Maleficarum" that she used to be a witch who sold her soul to a demon before her death during the Plague. Ruby later tells Dean Winchester she can't save his soul. She adds she still remembers what it's like to be human and says that she isn't the same as the other demons, though she wishes she were. Ruby returns in "Jus in Bello", offering to perform a spell which will destroy the attacking horde of demons, though it will also kill her. However, because the spell requires a human virgin's heart, Sam and Dean don't allow her to perform it.
In the season finale, Dean captures Ruby in a devil's trap painted on the floor, steals her knife, and leaves with Sam to face the demon Lilith, who holds the contract for Dean's soul. During the brothers' campaign, Ruby somehow frees herself and tracks them down, helping them find Lilith. The demon escapes, however, and the trio runs away from the hellhound tracking Dean down. During the mayhem, Lilith takes over Ruby's host, sending Ruby back to Hell. Horrified when her powers have no effect on Sam, Lilith flees her host before Sam can retaliate.
