Clive Babineaux is a main character of iZombie. Clive is a detective with the Seattle Police Department who is partnered with Olivia Moore, an Assistant M.E. with the King County Medical Examiner's Office.

As a detective who recently received a promotion from vice to homicide, Clive has been floundering for his first two months and is in desperate need of making a case. Though dubious at first about Liv’s “psychic” powers, she demonstrates too much accuracy for him not to take her seriously. He has now learned of the existence of zombies.

He is portrayed by Malcolm Goodwin.

Season OneEdit

In Pilot, Clive goes to the morgue to ask if they've found any identification for the Jane Doe that was found earlier. When Liv has a vision and tells him she was arrested in 2008, when Ravi checks it out it turns out to be true. Clive slightly confused asks how she would know this and is told by Ravi that Liv is a psychic. He continues to work on the case with the help of liv. Until it's solved and they learn that a fellow detective was behind the murder of the Jane Doe.

In Brother, Can You Spare a Brain?, Detective Babineaux works on a homicide case involving a murdered artist whom had multiple lovers. With the help of Liv and Ravi his initial suspicion that the artist's wife was behind the murder was confirmed. They found that that she killed him due to jealousy that he was leaving her to be with another. He confronts her at an art event before arresting her.


Clive initially appears to be an ambitious and serious detective, driven to earn the respect of his colleagues and prove that he is a competent homicide detective. To that end, he readily employs Liv's 'psychic' abilities despite some initial skepticism, proving to be resourceful and open to different avenues of investigation to aid in solving crimes.
