    Tru 

Tru Davies

Played By: Eliza Dushku

As a child, Tru was a witness to her mother's murder, and wishes she could have gone back to change things. Well, that's what this show's about. On the cusp of becoming a medical school student, Tru develops the ability to travel back in time one day. But only when a corpse asks for her help; she has no control over when this will happen. She then tries to use everything she knew up until that moment to save the life of the person who asked her for help.

    Davis 

Davis

The head doctor of the morgue where Tru works. He slowly reveals the fact that he knows about her abilities, and becomes her main helper on days when she goes back to help people.

  • Cannot Talk to Women: Painfully shy around women would be a forgiving description of Davis's interaction with most females, and he's not too comfortable around men either.
  • The Mentor: To Tru regarding her job at the morgue, and later about her abilities.
  • Only One Name: Davis is his middle name, but no first or last name was ever given.

    Harrison 

Harrison Davies

Played By: Shawn Reaves

Harrison Davies: Tru's little brother. Something of a screw-up, particularly at the start. He's a gambler, con-artist, low-level crook kind of a guy. Tru tries to watch out for him and keep him out of serious trouble. He's the only family she's close to. She eventually convinces him of his powers.

    Meredith 

Meredith Davies

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/meredith_davies.jpg
Played By: Jessica Collins

Tru's older sister. A lawyer with a drug problem that she says she's kicked, but Tru finds evidence otherwise. Tru's not particularly close to her, but she does try to keep an eye on her.

    Lindsay 

Lindsay Walker

Played By: AJ Cook

Tru's Best Briend. She acts as Tru's anchor in her normal life: dating, reunions, etc.

    Jack 

Jack Harper

Played By: Jason Priestley

Jack Harper: First introduced mid-first season as a new hire at the morgue; Jack picks up bodies and brings them to the morgue for processing. However, it is slowly revealed that he has powers similar to Tru's; whenever she goes back, so does he. Unlike Tru, Jack does not believe that the people who ask for her help should be helped, that it is his job to make sure that the people who died that previous day die again. Jack becomes the main villain of the series, obstructing Tru's mission to save people. Jack frequently speaks of the consequences of screwing with fate's plan, but he is never particularly clear on what those consequences actually are. The last two episodes of the series start to suggest certain consequences when Tru starts using/abusing her powers to save the life of someone who didn't ask for help.
