Reef was a fair-haired Nilfgaardian and one of the members of the Rats. He spoke with a distinct accent and had a naked woman tattooed on his forearm. He often took fisstech. He served in the Imperial Army until he was injured and abandoned by his mates during a siege in a castle in Ebbing during a punitive expedition to suppress a rebellion organized by Emhyr var Emreis, the Emperor of Nilfgaard. In the castle, Kayleigh, a survivor from the massacre, instead of finishing him off, helped and healed his injuries. The twos started then a new life, robbing rich men and enjoying their money. They later met Giselher, Asse, Mistle and Iskra during the holiday of Lammas in a village of Geso and formed a gang. He and the entire gang then, with the exception of Ciri, were killed at the hands of Leo Bonhart in Jealousy.
