Reni was born a woman, presumably in [[Germany|Munich, Germany]]. Prior to 1984, she had her first sex change to become a man, later being converted back to a woman, then a man again. Surgical sex changes [[wp:Sex reassignment surgery#History|date back to Berlin, Germany as early as 1930]], though the surgery is generally considered irreversible in real life, as opposed to Reni's multiple surgeries. In Europe, she became famous for shooting avant-garde art films which included child torture in a Berlin pizza parlor and a rhinoceros making love to a neon sign. On Flashback FM, she also mentions having been a [[Prostitutes|prostitute]] and being in porno (while female).

Reni was born a woman, presumably in Munich, Germany. Prior to 1984, she had her first sex change to become a man, later being converted back to a woman, then a man again. Surgical sex changes date back to Berlin, Germany as early as 1930, though the surgery is generally considered irreversible in real life, as opposed to Reni's multiple surgeries. In Europe, she became famous for shooting avant-garde art films which included child torture in a Berlin pizza parlor and a rhinoceros making love to a neon sign. On Flashback FM, she also mentions having been a prostitute and being in porno (while female).

GTA Vice City StoriesEdit

Reni eventually moved his (at the time) entire production company to Vice City, where he produced commercials and "edgy" pop music videos. Frankie served as his assistant throughout much of his appearances. His associates included Ricardo Diaz, Diego Mendez, Vic Vance (all major drug dealers, Diego having had a secret gay relationship with him), Barry Mickelthwaite (manager of Phil Collins who slept with Reni in Monaco while drunk) and Spitz (a small-time director who also bought kilos of cocaine at a time)

Eventually his life was threatened by Diego and Armando Mendez, who were at war with Vic Vance. Coincidentally, he admitted to Vic that he and Diego used to be an item. Vic protected him until he received his fourth sex change (into a woman) and returned to Europe to be a porn star.
