     The Reapers 
Georgia "George" Lass
That's me. I'd say I'm sorry to disappoint you but I'm not. I excel at not giving a shit.

Rube Sofer

"A corpse is like a peach cobbler that got dropped on the floor. As good as it was, you still wouldn't want it anymore."

Roxy Harvey
"You don't know me".

"And then there's Mason. Oh Mason, Mason".

  • The Alcoholic: This is the only way he can cope with his reaps.
  • Ass Shove: Mason once tried to smuggle drugs in a condom stuck up his ass. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Butt Monkey
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: He died trying to trepan himself because he thought it would give him the ultimate high. Over the course of the series he has a number of odd money making ideas.
  • Drugs Are Bad: He is taught this when experiencing heroin exploding in his rectum and not (due to being undead) being able to die from the lethal dose, instead having to suffer all the horrible side effects.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Sanguine/choleric
  • Living Forever Is Awesome: Played with. Unlike his fellows who are angsty or just apathetic, he's actually pretty happy with his lot in death. On the other hand he envies the souls that get to pass on immediately while he has to stay behind, but this is because whatever's on the other side is better than the side he's on.
  • Mr. Fanservice: His antics frequently get him naked or half naked, treating the audience to several shots of his bottom or his Union Jack underwear, mostly played for laughs, though.
  • Go Out with a Smile: He is revealed to have died in 1960s England after drilling a hole in his own head to try an achieve the ultimate high.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Wore these when attempting said ultimate high.
  • Immortal Immaturity: Since attempting that ultimate high, he has not matured a day.
  • No Social Skills
  • Only One Name: It's hard to say whether it's his first or last name.

Betty Rhomer
"Do your nipples get hard when you sneeze?"

  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Betty tags along with a recently deceased soul to the afterlife before her time. However it's loosely implied she might have ended up somewhere else.
  • Blithe Spirit: Being dead doesn't stop Betty from being full of life.
  • Catch Phrase / Pre-Mortem One-Liner: "Happy thoughts!"
  • Cool Big Sis: Betty gradually becomes this to George before hijacking a lift to the afterlife.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Dies by jumping off a cliff into a river for fun. It even takes a moment for her to realise that she's died, because she's still excited from the leap.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Sanguine
  • Hidden Depths: Comes across as ditzy and a little shallow, but is sweet, thoughtful, and charming underneath it all.
  • Precious Photos: Betty takes a picture of every single soul that she's reaped over the years, and keeps them in carefully labelled sacks.
  • Put on a Bus: Betty leaves halfway through season one.
