Season 7 generally

Question: I don't understand why Leviathans feed on humans. They were created before humans existed and were locked away before humans existed. Why do they feed on humans?

Chosen answer: God created the Leviathans. These beasts were among God's earliest creations, predating angels and humans. Whereas Death "personally found them entertaining", God worried the beasts would, as Death said, "Chomp the entire petri dish" as they proved to be too strong, too hungry, and too destructive. Sometime after he bound the Darkness, God locked away the Leviathans in Purgatory - which Death reveals as being specifically created to contain Leviathans. In addition, after locking the Leviathans up, God devised a means of killing the Leviathans should they ever escape Purgatory. When He had the Word of God tablets created, God made one for the Leviathans in case they ever escaped, putting instructions for the weapon on the tablet as well as a warning about them. In other words, they feed on humans to make them stronger.
