He's shy and a person that blends in w/ the crowd and doesn't open up very easy unless you put in a lot of effort to get to know him. Incredibly awkward if you don't talk much yourself so it would probably be pointless to try and get to know them. If you ever meet a Reu, try talking to him and you'll see how sweet he really is and what a great friend he can be. Once your friends with him, try your best not to loose him.
reu, a lanky ass, sweet guy that's in between cute and hot and leaves you on read so he can play fortnite.
