Jo Harvelle: 1995 - 2003

Jo was born to Bill and Ellen Harvelle, a married pair that had settled down from their monster hunting to raise their daughter and run a bar and trailer park to cater to other hunters.

As the couple's only child, Jo's only home was the Roadhouse her parents built and thus she grew up around hunters, including John Winchester and Bobby Singer, whom she and her parents regarded as family. She called the hunters she knew "uncle", such as Uncle Rufus and Uncle Dan.

On Jo's eighth birthday, her father gave her a bow-and-arrow set and taught her how to use it, while Ellen gave her a diary to write in. Jo wasted no time turning that diary into her own hunter's journal, even if her parents didn't let her go on hunts.

Jo Harvelle: 2003 - 2007

Though still too young to go on hunts, Jo wanted nothing more than to become a hunter like her father, mother and adopted extended family. Jo kept practicing her weapons skills night and day. She made sure to do her homework and chores right away so whenever a hunter rolled in, Jo could listen to their stories and add vital info to her diary.

As Jo developed her skills and lore, Bill returned to actively hunting. This left Jo at home with her mother. Whenever Ellen became concerned that Bill wasn't coming home, Jo would comfort her, reminding her that there was no monster alive that her dad couldn't kill. Of course, this sort of talk made Ellen realize that Jo really was focused on becoming a hunter and Ellen's maternal instinct to protect her daughter began to swell.

Jo met Gordon Walker when she was twelve years old and he was twenty-one. The two became good friends, though Jo really wanted it to be more than that. Jo did her best to hide that she had a crush on him, afraid that if word got out about that Ellen would send Gordon packing.

Jo Harvelle: 2007 -2011

When she was 16, after an argument with her mother, Jo ran out of the Roadhouse and found Gordon in the parking lot, just pulling in. Jo got in his car and told him to drive. Not one to argue with a Harvelle, Gordon did as he was told. While they drove, Jo told Gordon how she needed to prove to her mother that she had what it took to be a hunter. She begged Gordon to help her and after Jo's constant begging, Gordon gave in, saying he heard rumor of a rawhead a few states over.

Gordon used Jo as bait for the rawhead. When the monster found her, Jo became frightened and fled, running right into her mother. Ellen took out the rawhead and then forbade Jo from speaking to Gordon again. Jo didn't listen as she kept in contact with Gordon via texts and e-mails.

Jo Harvelle: 2011 - Present

Jo was surprised when Ellen agreed to let Jo start hunting with her father. All she had to promise to do was keep her grades up and promise to go to college. Through hunting, Jo met her first real friends: Wheeler, Ash, Daphne, Velma, the Banes twins, and even Garth.

But her hunting days were put on hold to uphold her deal to go to college, but even that deal was off once Jo heard her dad went missing while on a hunt with her Uncle John.

Supplemental Report

  • (Submitted by Four-Eyes) Word of advice if you're thinking of visiting Harvelle's Roadhouse: Don't let Jo hear you bad-mouthing R.E.O. Speedwagon. If she's in a good mood, you might get away with a verbal scolding. If she's feeling mischievous, your drink might get poured on your crotch. If she's in a bad mood, you might get a trip to the hospital with a nasty knife cut.[1]
