Roz... if you can hear me... I love you. Please understand that I had to do it. "Aphrodite, fair and mighty, take this form of fixed stone, and turn her back to flesh and bone. As below, so above... I yield to you my truest love."
— Harvey to Roz[src]

Relationships

Mr. Kinkle

Harvey and Mr. Kinkle

For many years, Harvey had an estranged relationship with his alcoholic and abusive father. It began shortly after his mother died when Harvey was 5 years old. Harvey's only means of protection was his older brother, Tommy, who stayed home from college to ensure that Harvey was taken care of. The tension grew as Harvey got older and his father continued to push him to start working in the family mines so that one day he may takeover and continue the family tradition. However, after a traumatizing event in the mines during his adolescents, Harvey had no desires to return and only sought to peruse his passion of drawing. Tommy died in an "accident" and Harvey was left to fend for himself. Fortunately, Sabrina intervened with a magic eggnog she conjured up to cure his alcoholism.

Tommy Kinkle

Tommy was Harvey's older brother and his only line of defense against a drunken and abusive father. Tommy stayed home from college in order to protect Harvey from their father.

Unfortunately, during one of his shifts, the mines collapsed on top of Tommy, killing him. However, he was resurrected by Sabrina, though in his second chance at life, he was without a soul and not the brother that Harvey had come to know and love, forcing Harvey to kill him.

Sabrina Spellman

Their relationship was severed when Sabrina performed an unsuccessful resurrection ritual for his brother, which resulted in him having to kill Tommy. After that, he re-learned that she was a witch. They were still romantically attracted to each other after the breakup, but decided to move on. In Sabrina's absence, Rosalind's blindness began to take effect, leaving both Roz and Harvey to blame Sabrina, but they eventually reconciled after realizing that she wasn't the cause. Unbeknownst to Harvey, Sabrina performed a cord-cutting spell to sever all romantic ties between the two of them.
