Reg is a robot who appears to be a little boy. His actual age, origins and even name are unknown since he can't recall anything about his life before his encounter with Riko. He was named Reg by Riko after a dog she used to have.
Having an artificial body, Reg might be the only thinking being completely immune to the Curse of the Abyss, because of that he is sometimes referred to as "The Treasure of the Deep."
Reg has tan skin and dark hair. He wears a metal helmet with two asymmetrical horns protruding out of the sides and what appears to be a glass lens in the front, which occasionally will glow with a strange symbol. Underneath his helmet is what looks similar to a jagged metal headband of some sort, with bolts on either side keeping it in place on his head. His ears are pointed. Reg's eyes are yellow with his pupils being vertical slits. There are two red patches of skin on his cheeks, and four more on the sides of his ribcage. His eyebrows are small and gray. Though he is a robot, the only parts of him that appear to be mechanical are his arms and legs. He even has nipples, a bellybutton, and human genitals.
He is usually shirtless, save for the tattered red cape he was wearing when Riko found him. His pants are a washed out green and purple, are baggy, and stop just below his knees.
Despite being a formidable fighter Reg is rather shy, naive and unassertive. He blushes easily and often cries when in distress. Unlike Riko, Reg is easily flustered by danger and has to rely on Riko's judgement in difficult situations. Regardless of his skittishness, Reg has made it his sworn duty to protect Riko, and doesn't hesitate to put up a fight when she is in harm's way.
History EditNothing is known of Reg's past, as he has none of his memories from prior to meeting Riko. Reg is found by Riko in the Abode of Fossils at a depth of 100-220 meters after Reg uses his incinerator to save Riko.
He presumes he is from the bottom of the abyss, as a sketch from Lyza shows a likeness to him. He had at one point before met Ozen the Unmovable, as well as supposedly been close to Faputa, though he doesn't remember any of this. Eventually, he recalled some of his memory that at one point, Reg journeyed with Riko's mother in the Abyss.
The incinerator is Reg's version of Sparagmos, the Essence-Returning Light. An object in its path disappears, "as if it comes undone... Shortly afterwards, the surrounding air ignites to nothing." The incinerator is also capable of "tensing up" the force field of the Abyss in an undefined manner. The size of the beam changes depending on Reg's will . It is important to note that the Incinerator does not just burn objects, it is connected to the Abyss in an unknown way. The name implies that everything hit by the light returns to the Abyss; for instance when Reg kills Mitty he makes a comment about Mitty's soul "cycling again." Nanachi also comments that Reg's incinerator "has the power to rewrite the rules of the Abyss".
The incinerator is a relic that is part of Reg. All relics in the Abyss contain a pattern that signify the number of uses left before becomming useless. Along with passing out for 2 hours after 10 minutes of using the Incinerator, the pattern in Reg's helmet decreases .
Extendable arms: Edit
Reg's arms can extend up to 40 meters each. He can shoot them to the top of cliffs or grab things very far away. The cord attaching them is very durable. Using these arms does not reduce the pattern on Reg's helmet because they require a minimal amount of energy.
Heightened senses: Edit
Reg's senses of smell and hearing are stronger than that of a human's. Nanachi has commented to herself that he reminds her of a dog by the way he follows his nose
Super Durability Edit
As commented on by several characters, Reg's body is extremely durable, even to the point that Ozen the Unmovable couldn't break him even when slamming him into the floor with all her strength. Despite his high durability, Reg is agile and weighs little.
