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 Wassulmaier is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series, who appears as a main character in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and a DJ for Flashback FM circa 1998 in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. Reni is a transsex avant-garde film director from Germany (circa 1984) in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Description Edit

BackgroundEdit

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).

1980's (GTA Vice City Stories)Edit

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, a drug supplier, Diego Mendez, another drug dealer and former lover, Barry Mickelthwaite, the manager of Phil Collins who slept with Reni in Monaco while drunk, Spitz, another film director who was also interested in buying coke, Vic Vance, a drug dealer who Spitz put Reni in contact with and Gonzalez, another drug dealer Reni was in contact with.

Eventually his life was threatened by Diego Mendez, who was at war with Vic Vance, but mainly because Reni put Vic in contact with Ricardo Diaz, a major rival of Diego and his brother Armando. Coincidentally, he admitted to Vic that he and Diego used to be an item when Reni was a woman. Vic protected him until he received his fourth sex change into a woman once more and returned to Europe to be a porn star.

GTA Liberty City Stories (1990's) Edit

For most of the '80s and '90s, Reni had a promising career in adult film. In 1998, she became the DJ for Flashback FM in Liberty City, where she talked extensively about her own sexual experiences (like having to poison her pet dog as a child before being abused by her uncle). Sometime between 1998 and 2001, she was replaced by Toni as the DJ. It is unknown what became of her after.

Non-chronologically, this was her first appearance in the Grand Theft Auto universe, on which the rest of her character was built around. Reni is the only 3D era DJ to actually appear as a cutscene character, excluding Lazlow's appearance in GTA V.
