Rube's advice and realizes that this connection to the past is not going well. After Rube's replacement is killed by Mason, Roxy and Daisy, due to his.
She was strangled to death by a jealous roommate in with leg warmerswhich Roxy had invented. Although she is generally seen as tough and no-nonsense, she has a softer side, shown in "Reapercussions" after saving the life of J.
Betty Rhomer Rebecca Gayheart: She keeps Polaroids of each of the souls she reaps, in department store shopping bags organized by personality type. She refers to this as her signature, as a way to separate herself from "the whole cloak and sickle thing. In a similar fashion to the reaping of George, though Rube did not personally reap Betty, he did collect her soul, as shown in the season 1 episode "Reaping Havoc".
Though she refers later to having been alive inthat is presumably an error in her memory since we are shown her tombstone. Daisy Adair Laura Harris: Her last thought before she died was, "Why has no one ever loved me?
She is traumatically affected by the violent deaths of defenseless women by abusive men, and although Roxy yelled at her for tampering with a crime scene after such a reap, Daisy then revealed to Mason that she had a sister who presumably died that way.
At the end of Season 2, Daisy begins to acquire a reputation as a "bad luck charm" when Ray accuses her of killing people.
When Ray's soul is transformed into a graveling, she enigmatically states in that and the next episode that she's "seen it before" and that it's "happening again. Though George ignored her while she was alive, Reggie is very much affected by the death of her sister. Due to her eccentric, seemingly pathological way of grieving her sister's death, Reggie is placed in psychiatric therapy.
Joy Lass Cynthia Stevenson: She is a Virgo who has a pathological fear of balloons and who hates the word moist because she thinks "it sounds pornographic". She likes to have order, rules, and control in her life.
Other characters in the show, such as Joy's own mother, believe that her obsession with control is how she copes with denial of her own out-of-control life, her daughter George's death, her younger daughter's rather unconventional style of grieving over George's death, and her divorce from her husband. In the episode where her mother comes to visit, however, it becomes clear that Joy's problems stem more from the chaotic lifestyle and abandonment issues of her own childhood.
Clancy Lass Greg Kean: He is an English Professor at the University of Washington. His relationship with Joy begins to deteriorate seriously after George's death. He has an affair with one of his Shakespeare-class students A.

Cookwhich becomes the final death knell to the marriage. In the Pilot it was suggested, by an overly-long hug, that his affair was with a young man but this homosexual thread was dropped and the student confirmed to be female in later episodes.
Delores disliked George, but becomes friends with "Millie", for whom she becomes something of a maternal figure, offering advice and support, and on one occasion bailing "Millie" out of jail.
Delores is optimistic, dynamic, and motivated; she has an active Internet presence through various social and dating sites, and runs a website her home life on webcam called 'Getting Things Done With Delores'. She has a very elderly cat named Murray.
Crystal Smith Crystal Dahl: Happy Time's mysterious receptionist whose Happy Time record indicates that she speaks several languages and previously served as a special forces operative in Southeast Asia.
She is also seen to steal great amounts of Post-it notes like those used to notify reapers of their assignments from Happy Time. The evidence suggests that Crystal is not a reaper the most obvious fact is that Crystal "sees" George as her un-George Millie incarnation, whereas a fellow reaper would see her still as George ; however her behavior around George and the other reapers such as helping them file "last thoughts"  suggests that she is aware of their other-worldly activities.
In Episode 29 "Haunted" when George and Mason are leaving the Happy Time office, Crystal greets "Millie", but immediately searches for 'Georgia Lass' on her computer when their backs are turned; this could be due to the fact that on Halloween the living see the reapers as their pre-death selves. Miscellaneous characters[ edit ] Kiffany Patricia Idlette: The reapers' usual server at "Der Waffle Haus". She is a quiet observer of the reaper group, perhaps suspecting who they really are, who takes their individual idiosyncrasies in stride.
Some of the characters believe her to be psychic. The youngest Reaper George knows is a child reaper, who she initially meets in a vet's waiting room when Delores' cat Murray has a health scare Charlie is really there to reap a rabbit. Child reapers only reap animals, and Charlie is seen reaping a komodo dragon in Reggie's school and acknowledges to her that he "knows Toilet Seat Girl"and later her dog, J.
He died after being struck by a drunk driver's car seven years previously, and lives on the streets presumably to avoid social services, school, and the awkwardness of not growing older. The oldest Reaper George meets is Penny, who died during the sinking of the Titanic and whom Mason calls "Older than forever and a day.
She says it's less hectic because everyone has a name tag, and no one is going anywhere, making her reaps easier than her nursing job. Mason and Roxy both greet Penny with affection upon her giving Rube a courtesy heads-up that his daughter, unbeknownst to him living in a long term care center, was her reap of the day.
He accompanied Penny to say goodbye in "Always" and sang his dying daughter to sleep with the lullaby he had sung to her on the day he presumably died, which acted as a loving parallel in their separated lives.
Grim reapers[ edit ] In the world of Dead Like Me, grim reapers do not wear black cloaks or carry scythes cloaks and scythes are only featured during the opening credits, for humorous effectbut their role remains traditional: One becomes a reaper by being the last soul collected when one's own reaper meets his or her secret quota. In the series, Death has a list of who is scheduled to die and when. She is the protagonist of the series, and also performs the function of narrator.
As a child, she is portrayed by Talia Ranger. When George was a young child, she had a very close relationship with her father.

Every Sunday morning she and Clancy would eat breakfast at a local diner. However, as she grew older, George distanced herself from both her parents, becoming increasingly insolent and obstinate. The birth of her little sister, Reggiecaused George to feel neglected, creating a rift between her and Joy.
George's habit of ignoring Reggie lasted until her death and caused serious emotional damage to her young sister. At least twice in her childhood George was shown to be able to see Gravelings. In the first instance she was pushed into a public swimming pool by another girl who wanted to impress a mean clique. Two Gravelings had removed a grate at the bottom of the pool, toward which George was sinking, but one of the Gravelings appeared to argue with the other about something, and they retreated, allowing George to be rescued by lifeguards.
The second instance was on a Halloweenwhen George confronted a serial killer about why he did not hand out candy in the traditional way instead leaving a dish full on his steps.
When looking into his house, George saw a Graveling behind the man. According to her mother, George's maturity level and intellect quickly outpaced that of her friends, leaving her alone throughout high school.
George repeatedly mentions that she had no boyfriends and partook in no sexual activities in her lifetime, blatantly ignoring men who flirted with her.Dead like me=George and Mason - I think she likes me.
George began college presumably at the University of Washingtonwhere her father worked but only lasted to midterm, after which she dropped out and sought a job from Happy Time Temporary Services.
Delores Herbig purposefully found George the least pleasant job she could find after George insulted her authority and seniority. On June 27, at the age of 18 during the lunch break of her first day of work, George was struck by a zero-G toilet seat dislodged from the de-orbiting Soviet space station Mirincinerating all of her but one shoe. However, according to the paycheck of Brendan Marshall Moore killed in Pilot episode by revolving doorhe was paid on the fourth of September,meaning that his paycheck was actually a year old highly unlikely since they expireor this was a simple printing error.
Before her death, George characterizes herself as uninterested in everything, in order to ward off disappointment; by her understanding, interest led to expectations, which then led to disappointment once those expectations were cut short.
Unlike many of her future "reaps", George suffers from mild hysteria upon realizing she is dead. Since she is here to stay, Rube breaks many guidelines associated with reaping, taking her to her autopsy and allowing her to attend her own funeral.
Once her corpse or what is left of it is properly interred, she becomes officially undead "Un-George" and gains a new physical body and different appearance to all non-Reapers portrayed by Laura Boddington in the TV series, and Jennifer Rae Westley in the later film. Since her appearance has changed to facilitate her reaping, she has a fresh start and this time impresses Delores - who hires her to work at Happy Time itself.
