Reynold isn't fooling anyone with his tie.
Without the Glasses

Reynold is a civilian contractor for the Cheat Commandos. He wears glasses and a fake tie, and his favorite drink is milk. In addition to the Reynold action figure, you can also buy Reynold's Apartment Extreme Playset. In the Cheat Commandos commercial, we learn that he once had a girlfriend who would possibly buy his groceries for him, but she left him some time ago.

Reynold's first appearance as an animated character was in the toon Shopping For Danger. He is unhappy with his job and wants to go on a mission with the other Cheat Commandos, believing that he could be a "good mission guy". However, Crackotage tells him, "You can't shoot, and you can't fly! If you came with us, you'd prob'ly die!" (This point is illustrated later in the cartoon where Reynold nearly destroys the Headquarters Playset by playing with Reinforcements' Justice Rocket Backpack Rocket Rocket.) In fact, all of the rest of the Commandos seem to treat him as though he were a kid, illustrated by his lesson about Appropriate Peer-2-Teen Choice Behaviors in Commandos in the Classroom after a frustrated Reynold threatened to go home and "get teen pregnant".

Reynold's treatment at the hands of his fellow Cheat Commandos has gotten worse over the years. It is revealed in Cheat Commandos: Two Part Episode: Part 1 that Reynold's "office" is actually a prison cell containing only a toilet; Reynold is locked in there for months at a time and is rarely fed by the team, which explains the rather emaciated appearance he has in the cartoon. In Cheat Commandos: Two Part Episode: Part 2, Blue Laser Commander takes advantage of Reynold's dissatisfaction with the Cheat Commandos to recruit him as a new Blue Laser agent, codenamed "Scrawnjob". In this role, Reynold is given credit for Blue Laser's diabolical plot to drive up the price of skee-ball prizes and make kids become part of criminal groups.

He suffers from strabismus, a muscular failure that causes the eyes to move in different directions when not wearing corrective glasses or lenses. He has a romantic interest in Foxface, the only known female Commando. However, his attempts to "be one of the guys" have only led to embarrassment, as he is not good at swearing (evidenced by his best effort: "diaper biscuits") and he has never eaten pizza.

Reynold is one of two Cheat Commandos (Crackotage being the other) whose family has been mentioned. He and his brother do not get along very well, as Reynold dislikes the fact that he is unable to sleep in his room when he returns to his parents' house for Thanksgiving because his brother is renting it (among other things). His brother thinks he is "so lame".

Reynold is one of the Cheat Commandos featured in the first Cheat Commandos figurine set.

On November 29th, 2007, a "fanimation" was posted as the Weekly Fanstuff for the week. It featured a Reynold version of Gardenboy from yes, wrestling.
