Dead Like Me Wiki

Roxanne "Roxy" Harvey (Jasmine Guy) was strangled with leg warmers by a jealous friend after inventing them in 1982.

She is the only Reaper on the series shown to use her powers in anger, when she temporarily removed the soul of a particularly rude motorist, thereby alerting him to the existence of a higher power. The man subsequently started a religion around her, much to Rube's dismay (The man reverted to his usual enraged self when Roxy gripped his testicles). She has confessed to often not sleeping because of nightmares.

Assigned to investigate the disappearance of Ray Summers, Roxy concluded that Daisy and Mason had something to do with it, but she chose to cover for them, claiming that Ray, who had a police record, ran off to Portland, Oregon.

She is the most recent Reaper before George.


1982. She apparently has a very difficult time coming to terms with her own death, so with Rube's encouragement she marks the 21st anniversary of the event by burning her former possessions. Roxy and George are the only Reapers of the group with day jobs. She used to be a meter maid for the city, but entered the police academy at the beginning of the second season.

She is a cynical, no-nonsense woman with respect to both reaping and her day job and carried a handgun to intimidate people that she tickets to keep their arguments over parking tickets short.

Piano Victim


Roxy and Rube[]

Rube considers Roxy to be his "second in command" and left her in charge when he went away to locate his daughter's whereabouts.

Roxy and George[]

George and Roxy develop a near-friendship as George acquires a greater sense of responsibility, impressing Roxy given her own police duties.

Roxy and Mason[]

Roxy is by far more mature than Mason, who died before her. She doesn't dislike him, but has little respect for him because of his immature and "druggie" mentalities. He also makes it hard for her when she becomes a Police Officer knowing all the laws he has and continues to break.

Roxy and Daisy[]

Roxy does not really like Daisy and the feeling seems to be mutual. Daisy is constantly looking down on everyone and Roxy is a no nonsense sort of woman who makes her feelings known to Daisy regularly.
