Ogden (Joy) is a skilled pathologist and mortician. The first of two sisters, she apparently was a tomboy in her youth. It has been revealed her mother is dead, she has a strained relationship with her father and she has a criminal record for being caught skinny dipping with some university colleagues.
It is revealed she became accidentally pregnant, when in university and terminated it; this causes Murdoch to end his relationship with her. She enjoys tennis, reading, cycling and attending the theatre, though has few significant relationships.
While it is clear she reciprocates Murdoch's feelings for her, her fears of complicating their working relationship or of being rejected have prevented her acting on them until jealousy towards his dining with her sister drives her to accept a dinner invitation. An argument between them in the second season leads to a postponement of the relationship and causes a number of awkward moments until she agrees to discuss restarting the relationship in the season finale.
Ogden is often consulted on cases by Murdoch and is able to provide valuable insights on many cases.
In Season 3, she considers leaving the Constabulary to go work in a children's hospital in Buffalo
