Allegedly an orphan, Reda travelled throughout Egypt with his camel, mostly selling rare and legendary weapons and carbon crystals. Also a gambler, Reda proposed customers to buy the random content of the Heka chest, a mystery box. In 48 BCE, Reda came across the Medjay Bayek of Siwa in Yamu, who was passing through the village towards Alexandria. Reda introduced himself to Bayek, offering to sell his goods to the Medjay if he needed them.
Personality and characteristics
Reda had an acute business acumen and respect for his customers. Across their various meetings, Reda provided several differing stories of his parents' deaths to Bayek; the first of which was that a Phylakitai of Alexandria caught them stealing and boiled them in a bronze bull. Later on, he told Bayek that his father was poisoned by his mother and that she was later killed by a hippopotamus.
