YvettePlayed by Kimberly Hébert Gregory
Yvette serves as Kevin's guide and teacher, a drill sergeant with divine authority. Confident, fierce, no-nonsense, her job is to guide Kevin toward spiritual enlightenment. Her methods can be warm and loving, or punishing and painful. If she's an angel (and she never calls herself that), she's the least angel-like being Kevin has ever met.
