From an early age, Reid was a playful and highly competitive child who would often join his friends Farah Oersted and Keele Zeibel on adventures in the vicinity of their village of Rasheans. He would often tease Keele for being a crybaby, and whenever Keele achieved something notable, Reid would always try to take credit for it so he could boast about it afterward. One day, Farah demanded that Reid and Keele should start a competition at the Regulus Knoll to find a sparkling stone that she termed as a "star fragment", in spite of the area being locked off and forbidden to outsiders. After Farah unlocked the gates with the key she stole from her father, Reid quickly ran through the ruins and into the nearby cave system, with Keele barely following behind. When they finally discovered one of the precious stones that Farah wanted them to retrieve, Keele picked it up to examine it, but Reid took it from his hands and started to run back to the surface, only to run into Farah's father, Norris Oersted, the Elder of Rasheans.
