Peregrin "Reece" Laurie is first mentioned in UncleDobbinsParrotFair
Reece is "as sharp-faced as a weasel - a narrow-shouldered thin whip of a teenager." He wears a two-inch multi-coloured mohawk.
His hippie parents named after the character in "Lord of the Rings," to his chagrin. When he was older, he picked out his own name, Reece (he also chose it from a book, but it sounded much cooler so that was okay).
Reece's parents are both burnout from the sixties, living in West Hollywood. Growing up Reece was never punished, since his parents simply 'let him do his own thing.' Ashamed of his parents, Reece left home the first chance he had. Reece is homeless, sleeping on park benches and in parks.
Reece is haunted by the presence of a monster which he refers to as "the Booger." Red-eyed and all teeth, it follows him around causing destruction wherever it goes. The Booger is perhaps a physical manifestation of Reece's anger.
