- "Trying times lie ahead for all of us. "
- —Reggie to his employees after the Meteor Spice attack.
Reginald Rivers (レジナルド リバース, Ribaasu Rejinarudo), commonly refereed to as simply Reggie (レジー, Rejii), is a business magnate, investor, philanthropist, notorious playboy, former Bishokuya, and one of the richest men on the planet. Having founded R&R Shipping a decade ago, Reggie built a vast shipping empire that is second only to that of Company Gourdarake, the corporation's primary rival in the transportation of commodities around the globe. An eccentric business executive and infamous Casanova, the young man has become a household name in the once glistening Gourmet Age. However, unlike most corporate titans, Reggie did not get his start in the boardroom or at business expos, but instead started out as a bishokuya nearly twenty years ago. He had established himself as a prominent and talented bishokuya, capable of traversing even the Gourmet World to accomplish the most difficult of tasks—and even in the early stages of building his company, he still did work as a bishokuya for monetary reasons. Despite retiring from the occupation years ago, he still trains on a normal basis to advance and hone his abilities in what he calls "an increasingly unstable world."
Following the Meteor Spice tragedy, the shipping industry was thrown into chaos and Reggie's company along with it. With his life's work fractured and the industry along with consumers recovering from devastation, Reggie finds himself contemplating his next move. He is also wary of the threat that is NEO to a recovering, yet still fragile world. It is worth noting that Reggie is the only son of the late J.T. Rivers, a prominent gourmet historian and writer, and Elise Rivers, a retired Saiseiya.
