Ohh just a quick ref for my REEDBABI <3
I didn't do a very good version of his front because honestly, its just the same color of his body other then him having hip spots in the front too LOL. PLUS HE'S JUST WAY SEXIER FROM THE BACK ANYWAY ~
Also Reed does not have wings, he was born without them as a Vertigo -
anywhooo just going to copy his back story to here for you peeps who still havn't read it and want to c:
Reed grows up to Join the Audit Inafectory, which is basically like, the Northern Criminal Justice department - and became an official Inafectar by age 21 (and inafector is rather an investigator, while audits are the enforcers ect ect) He specializes mostly in understanding the criminal mind and often is the one who gives insight into why they do what they do - he is also some what of a prodigy when it comes to weapons analysis, usually able to tell by simply looking at a weapon or bullet exactly what kind it is, where it was made, what model ect ect.
When he is 23 him and his department start on a large case, a man that they simply refer to as "Harland" who has been terrorizing the Capital streets for more then 2 decades - elluding the Auditry at every turn and randomizing his murderous addictions so much that it makes him incredibly diffacult to profile. Reed becomes rather obsessed with this preticular case and profiling the "The man who can't be profiled" One night Reed chooses to go out on his own on a lead - the fact that he doesn't usually go anywhere without someone rather surprising that he's gone alone. Harland knows his chasers inside and out, studying the audits so that he can always allude them- particularly though, he gains an interest in Reed and starts to watch him more closely, observing that the kids current obsession with him is making him more and more reckless with his own safety in regards to Harland and his "usual" tendency to choose women as victims rather then the later. It never crosses Reed's mind that Harland might target him next, Reed unintentionally making it easy for Harland to lure him in - his usual sense of judgment completely blind to the risk he would typically be well aware of.
Biding his time, Harland eventually baits Reed into coming to his warehouse (an unknown location in an abandoned building) Once he has Reed he makes it near impossible for the department to find them. While with Harland he is mercilessly tortured and mentally battered by the man.
Eventually Harland decides on his own terms to surrender Reed on his own and reveals a location where they can find him, where they rush to a battered Reed near death, a note left with him exclaiming "Know that I decide when the game is over" He is rushed to the hospital where he is treated for his wounds and kept there for a bit. When asked to explain to his unit what went on in the long 5 weeks, He makes a point not to say much, understandable, after what he had just been through.
Reed seems that he will recover physically, though it soon becomes very clear the mentally Harland has twisted him in the most extreme of ways. He continues his work eventually but it becomes very apparent to one of the female members that something isn't quite right with him anymore. One night when she goes to check up on him at his flat, she finds that Reed has not only become even more obsessed with Harland, but that he is no longer searching for him to catch him, but for what appears to be simply to find him. Worried about him when she notices that he has been doing some odd things to deal with his mental pain and decides to take action into her own hands. Even though she doesn't want to, she turns him into the Auditry which strips him of his duties until he is deemed mentally stable enough to carry on, which of course is another mental blow to him - Merca, the agent who turns him in, realizes what she has done will likely mentally wreck him further and requests that the Auditry also issue him to move somewhere where he is watched at all times - and since Reed has no immediate family (his mother is dead and all relatives are unknown) she volunteers to allow Reed to move in with her, where she can closely watch him and maybe even help him heal from his ordeal.
However, once he moves in with her her worries only increase as she becomes even more familiar with the degree of damage Harland had really caused. In this time she becomes very close to Reed and becomes very aware of his problems - she tries to get him to talk to her about what happened but as before, Reed still remains very reserved about it. Eventually she starts to notice odd little things about him - calls in the middle of the night to what appear to be the numbers of pay phones, the fact that he tends to avoid her sometimes or even her touching him what so ever results in him jerking nearly every time. She can tell he's hiding something too and becomes determined to find out what that is.
One night when she comes home, she had left Reed only for a few hours and comes home to find he is gone. when she informs the others they show her a note has been left for them as a taunt "I never said the game was over" at first Merca believes that he has kidnapped Reed and is furious with herself for not protecting Reed like she promised she would. when she comes home that night however she finds a note that Reed must of hidden in the room knowing she would find it later - rather then right away. He explains that only Harland can fix him and that they shouldn't look for him, since he is the one they would had to outmatch now, just just Harland.
Harland has mentally unstablized Reed so much that he believes that he needs Harland and chooses to go with him freely when He asks him to, Harland being very proud of the fact that he has wrecked an Audit so easily. By doing this Harland feels an immense sense of satisfaction and feels he has truely beaten the Auditry by gaining the trust and need of one of their own. The two of them fall under the radar and become as invisible as Harland always seemed to be, though they never give up on finding him and getting Reed back - even when they begin to believe that Reed might be idling standing by while Harland continues his terroristic tendencies. Even when the Auditry begins to accept that they may never find them, Merca becomes as obsessed with the case as Reed once was, only its more personal now - her determination to save Reed only intensified with the knowledge that Reed doesn't want to be found.
BUUUUT yea im probably spoiling the entire thing lmao so ima stop now -
This is around the time when Reed is first captured by Harland - the fact that he stops tieing him up after a while showing how he has mentally trapped Reed - he even stops locking the doors when he leaves at one point, showing that even before the Team first finds him again how Harland has already wrecked him into believing that he can't leave for what ever reason Harland has drilled into his mind.
