- "I'll win this tournament. Nothing in the world can possibly stop me now! And I'll go home victorious, after winning the tournament for a fifth straight time, as Fred's bride."
- —Reiko Ando
Years before the events of Outlaw Star, Reiko Ando assumedly met Fred Luo and fell madly in love with him. Fred, due to his sexuality, did not return similar feelings to Ando and made her a deal to get rid of her; he claimed he would marry her if she won the Universal Strongman Tournament five times in succession. While he was sure she would not be able to do so, she managed to win the tournament four years in a row and planned to win it again.
"The Strongest Woman in the Universe"Edit
Desperate for help, Fred Luo approached Gene Starwind before Ando's fifth tournament and begged him to find a way to keep her from winning, and thus, marrying Fred. Seemingly unable to enlist Aisha Clan-Clan in the tournament to fight her, Gene disguises himself as a woman and plans to fight Ando himself.
She appears as Gene's first opponent and, despite having trouble adapting to his dodging and taunting, eventually grapples him and throws him to the floor, knocking him unconcious and winning the fight. While she does not fight Aisha, she can be seen defeating her opponents and making her way to the final rounds. Despite her winning streak, she quickly loses to a fierce competitor, Iraga, only ninteteen seconds into the first round.
While being escorted to the infirmary after the match, she meets an overjoyed Fred, who claims that "there's really nothing to discuss" about their relationship anymore. Determined, she begs Fred for another chance, who nervously agrees but iterates that she should "take her time" first. Embracing him, she accidentally injures his hand and back, and later appears in a bed next to his in a hospital.
Reiko is a mountain of a woman, towering over the likes of Gene and sporting a musclebound physique. She sports brown hair tied in a ponytail and brown eyes. Despite her masculine body, her face is naturally feminine.
As elicited by her winning of the Universal Strongman Tournament four times in a row, she is determined to become Fred's bride. During her match with Gene, she is shown to be confident that she will be able to win a fifth time, but is also shown to dislike Gene's lack of seriousness during the fight, angered at his taunting and cockiness.
Also elicited by her victories, Reiko is an extremely competent fighter. She is strong enough to knock out Gene in a single throw, and quickly advances through the tournament by easily defeating the other competitors. She appears to be unable to contain her own strength, unintentionally injuring Fred in her embrace.
