Early life[]

Reiner was a mercenary who had a wife called Bethany and two little daughters, Marcella and Priscilla, and lived in the town of Kaipo.

Seven months prior to game's events, Espers suddenly change their behavior and start to attack humans, Kaipo being one of the first towns to be their target. During the Espers' attack on the town, Reiner's family is killed from Ramuh's hands. After this, Reiner joined the newly formed Augurers in Lindblum City swearing to get his revenge on the Esper.

Blackmoon Prophecy II[]

Cid Beryl, a commanding officer of Augurers, assigns a recruit named Zephyr Highwind to Reiner with a task of investigating the Esper threat reported in the town of Dawnmarch. Reiner travels to Neirbrook, Zephyr's hometown, to collect the recruit and take him on the mission. The trained Augurer is not impressed with the Zephyr's lack of training pointing that he should train to be at peak condition after he enlisted.

Creation and development[]

As opposed to the first game, which emulated old Final Fantasy games before characters had fleshed out personalities, UPRC aims to make each character feel very unique in terms of personality in Blackmoon Prophecy II. All of the character personalities in the game are slightly based on other characters from the Final Fantasy series. Reiner is based on Cyan Garamonde from Final Fantasy VI.[1]
