Dean was born on January 24, 1979 to John and Mary Winchester. He was the couple's first-born child and elder son, four years older than his younger brother, Sam.
Dean drives a black four-door 1967 Chevy Impala (given to him by his father) and is a fan of classic rock music and heavy metal. He always wears a brass amulet on a long black cloth band necklace. In the episode "A Very Supernatural Christmas", the necklace is revealed to be a gift from Sam on Christmas Day, 1991. The amulet was originally meant for John, but after their father yet again failed to come home for Christmas, Sam gave it to Dean instead, saying "Dad lied to me, I want you to have it," and because Dean desperately tried to give him a good Christmas. In addition to the amulet, Dean always wears a silver ring.
Dean also appears to be a fan of Jack Nicholson, and possibly watches Oprah. He tends to make light of some of his and Sam's adventures, and is known to use crude humor and make sexual innuendos. Dean is terrified of flying, and claims that it is the reason why he drives everywhere. He values his family and their safety more than anything else, even going so far as to kill a demon and its human host in order to save Sam's life, as well as sell his own soul to save Sam's life.
