- — Reaves, as he bandaged the back of Victor Hoffman's head
Siege of Anvil GateEdit
In 17 B.E., Reaves was in Connaught Platoon of the 26th Royal Tyran infantry, and was stationed at Anvil Gate. When the fort came under siege, Reaves helped tend to Lt.Victor Hoffman, who had been wounded by a rocket attack, with the help of Sheraya Byrne. When Hoffman tried to leave to help in the cleanup after the attack, he and Sheraya forced him back down into his chair, telling him that he needed medical aid before he could help anyone. Once Reaves finished bandaging the back of Hoffman's head, Hoffman ordered him to get a mortuary set up to dig temporary graves for those who had been killed in the attack.
