Sam was born on May 2, 1983 to John and Mary Winchester in Lawrence, Kansas. He was the couple's second-born child and younger son, four years younger than his older brother, Dean.
Sam is different from his older brother, in that he is sensitive, rational, more innocent, and seemingly more concerned with living a "normal life" than his brother; in spite of this, it is apparent that he would do anything for Dean. He also rebelled against his father's attempts to raise him as a demon hunter and enrolled in Stanford University.
When Dean came to ask Sam for his help in the first episode, the viewers are introduced to Jessica, Sam's girlfriend. It is apparent that Sam was somewhat popular, despite no one knowing what it is his family really does. His brother Dean is the only one allowed to call him by his nickname, "Sammy." Sam has also had more love interests than Dean, although Dean has had a few flings on the show.
Although this is the Sam the viewers have come to love in Seasons 1 & 2, Sam has slowly become more and more hardened and cold hearted as Season 3 continues on. This is mostlikely a result of trying to become more like Dean so he can help Dean get out of 'the Deal.'
