Reno was a young Auronar whose obsession with his own beauty lead him to Karwen in search of the Water of Life. Although his exact date of birth is unknown, he predated the advent of cloning on Auron. He hoped to preserve his beauty forever by means of the Water, but he was ignorant of its true nature and it caught him. When Cally found Reno, he was the only sane consciousness remaining in the Water. As a telepath, he was forced to listen to the mental anguish and eventual madness of the Water's other victims. He tried to persuade Cally to join him in the Water in order to keep him sane. Reno had some influence over the Water and was able to use it to capture Tarrant and Grant. Cally was unable to free him from the water as his body had decayed. However, Reno was able to come aboard the Liberator inside the wet clothes of the crew, where he possessed Avon. He brought with him one of his bones, and tried to take the Liberator to Auron - not realising the planet had been destroyed. He hoped to use the cloning technology about which Cally had told him to restore his body. Cally realised that Avon was not himself when he told her she was beautiful. She helped Avon to regain control of his body. Afterwards, Avon claimed Reno was dead, not revealing that he could still hear Reno's voice, begging for help. (TCAA: Mindset)
