- "I'm a hunter. If it has claws, fangs or can kill without a gun or a blade then hunters are supposed to kill it. Simple as that. "
- ―Ian Patterson
He lives in Plainfield, Indiana in a house he has completely warded from demons and even monsters due to him having the Thomas family gris gris bag to empower it.
Ian Patterson's attitude towards hunting mirrors what Dean Winchester's was before he started to see things in shades of gray. Ian doesn't believe that shades of gray exist in the supernatural world when it comes to monsters. He doesn't believe that there are such things as 'good monsters' or good supernatural people, such as witches. If they are not or beyond human, then its something for him to hunt. He has adopted an 'its either us or them' sort of mentality.
