[ History ] :
Joining a gang was the obvious (and only) choice for a boy in Reno’s position, and despite his lack of education, he was a quick learner; by the age of fifteen, his was a name well known on the streets. Agile, accurate, and deadly when wielding one of the blunt metal objects that served as weapons of choice, he was quickly acknowledged as a formidable enemy by anyone who had the guts to challenge him. Rumor had it that Reno had absolutely no fear of death or injury, a trait that added a reckless, crazed edge to his fighting style and caused many would-be foes to think twice before crossing him. Within a few years, his increasingly notorious gang began pulling jobs farther and farther from their home turf, which lead to Reno being noticed and eventually recruited by the Turks.
Reno in the FFVII Compilation
[ Personality ] :
Reno’s penchant for sticking his foot in his mouth makes it easy to write him off as nothing more than a clown, yet beneath his foolhardy exterior resides a mind far sharper than he is generally given credit for. While Reno is perfectly happy to act the fool, his apparent recklessness in fact masks the cunning required to stay alive in his line of work – a cunning without which Reno would not have remain as the long-standing second-in-command and one of the few Turks still on the job after nearly a decade. Those who work with Reno regularly know him to be a reliable ally, and those who bother to listen closely enough will find that Reno can be surprisingly profound, however flippant and careless his words might sound on the surface.
Due to his gang background, Reno is extremely loyal to his own and merciless when it comes to enemies of the employer he serves, regardless of whatever dubious motives might lay behind his orders. A testament to the fact, his allegiance to Rufus ShinRa remains steadfast even after the fall of ShinRa Inc. Simply put, when ShinRa says jump – company or no company – Reno asks who he needs to take down with him as he goes over the edge.
[ Strengths/Weaknesses ] :
He can also drink you under the table.
Ever eager to prove his ability to drink you under the table – whether you ask for proof that he can or not – Reno has understandable issues with mornings. He is therefore seen quite regularly dragging himself into the office late, sometimes in various forms of undress. He can be overtly nihilistic at times, just this shy of absent-minded, and is far better with a weapon than in straight up hand-to-hand combat.
[ Other Important Facts ] :
[ Sample ] :
I am unappreciated, yo.
But I don't really mind. It's like, sure, maybe you can talk your way into a cushy job that'll set you up for life, but then you're still stuck behind a desk doing nothing, and I'm just not down with that. I gotta be out there, be in the now and living, you know? 'Cause what's the point of being alive if you don't live like you could die any second? I could die any second.
And I like it like that.
But seriously, my instincts will take me way farther than any book ever could. Just 'cause most people can't see that don't mean it's not true. I'm fuckin' Reno of the Turks, bitchass, and my name's probably better known than yours ever will be. I am damn good at what I do, and I can't think of anything I'd rather be doing than shooting some bitches up by day and drinking it up with my boys at night.
That's the life, man. That's living. I'm tellin' ya. If you're not me, if you're not like me, you really don't know what you're missing.
