Black Metal Ranger
Reggie Anvil is the Black Metal Ranger, with the power of mercury physiology, and an evil Ranger by choice.
Part of a military family in Berlin, Reggie was raised to believe that only winning mattered. This translated over to his ninja training, even though he had a little trouble getting into Terra Academy because he had to board, but his stubbornness earned the respect of both his teachers and his fellow students. He made no friends, though.
When Korassil attacked and took over Terra Ninja Academy, and offered them a place in his army, Reggie was the first to volunteer. He was assigned to help General Tauza track down Easton and any other students in the Ethereal Academy. Early the next day, he helped her to fight the trio and take their Zords.
After the capture of Easton, Reggie interrogated him to find out how he could best deceive the remaining Ethereal students. He tricked them into helping him by faking a failed escape of his own, and lied that he'd been coerced into serving Tauza. They "convinced" him to help rescue Easton, and he led them into Tauza's ship, only to turn on them when they arrived. A fight broke out, and Reggie and Susana fought for a little while before Kerri found Easton and they escaped, even when Reggie pursued in his Zord.
A frustrated Reggie wanted to continue attacking them, but Tauza was able to calm him down and send other forces to occupy the Ethereal Rangers. None were particularly successful. Reggie seemed to settle into his role as advisor, particularly when it came to dealing with the imprisoned Chiratheon. However, he was unable to stop Dean and Alice from escaping after a test of loyalty went wrong, thanks to the Ethereal and Season Rangers' intervention.
Reggie joined in Tauza's attacks on Korassil, first at Chiratheon's lake and then back in Scrimshaw. There, his and Anya's Zords were taken out of commission in one crash. In spite of his broken leg and Anya's objections, he attempted to rejoin the fight. When he realized he'd only lose if he tried to fight, Reggie attempted to commit suicide, so that he could die undefeated.
At this point Jambavan arrived. He offered the pair a place at his side, pointing out that he'd technically won this fight--the Rangers were just helping his ultimate goal of destroying Lothor's fleet. Reggie agreed, on condition that they return to prove to the Rangers that they were superior. Before they could leave, however, Archer and Nero intercepted them. Jambavan attacked the pair.
Reggie is haughty, violent and mercilessly competitive, to the point where he would kill or maim to win. He has a secret fear of finding friends, or worse, love.
