Gadreel or Gaderel (Hebrew: גדר האלgader ha-el, literally "wall of God") is listed as one of the chiefs in the fallen Watchers. This is depicted in the second section of the "Book of Enoch"; "Parables". He is said to have been responsible for deceiving Eve.

Gadreel was mentioned as the third of five "satans" who led other angels into copulating with humans, leading to the creation of the giant-like Nephilim. The others were called Yeqon (or Yaqum, Aramaic "he shall rise"), Asbeel ("deserter from God"), Penemue ("the inside"), and Kasdaye ("Chaldean", "covered hand").

In media[edit]

In the television series Supernatural (9th season), Gadreel (Tahmoh Penikett) possesses Sam Winchester[1] and takes the identity of the angel Ezekiel to try to redeem himself for having let the Serpent into the Garden of Eden.
