— Dimo Reeves to Mikasa Ackermann[1]

Dimo Reeves (ディモ・リーブス Dimo Rībusu?)[2] was a merchant that led the Reeves Company, a merchant group named after him. He was based in Trost District for most of his dealings and had a brief alliance with the Military Police before allying himself with the Scout Regiment.

Appearance

Dimo Reeves was a short, overweight man. His head was balding with black hair on the sides and a thin dark mustache and beard. He had brown eyes and bright skin. He was usually well dressed, with a brown leather jacket, gray vest, and pink button-up shirt with red-brown dress pants and brown dress shoes.

Personality

Reeves first appeared during the invasion of Trost District, where he was seen as a selfish businessman blocking the inner gate with his cart. He commented that their lives are not worth half as much as his cart, and orders them to push. He only relented when his life was threatened by Mikasa Ackermann, not due to any change of heart.[1]

Later on, it is revealed he was actually not as selfish as he first seemed, and he agreed to help the Scout Regiment with Levi praising the Reeves Company for keeping Trost stable. He turned out to be a very intelligent and honest man, although he obviously focused a lot on the profit of his business.[2]

Story

The Fall of Shiganshina arc

Reeves hears the news of Shiganshina's fall

On the day of the fall of Shiganshina in year 845, Reeves is seen at Trost District discussing with other men the news about the breach on Shiganshina, and wondering if Wall Maria has fallen or only the outer district was lost. They are then approached by a Garrison member who informs them that the inner gate was destroyed too and thus Wall Maria has effectively fallen.[3]

The Struggle for Trost arc

Reeves appears once again during the invasion of Trost District where he is seen blocking the inner gate of Wall Rose with a cart full of merchandise, effectively preventing most of the survivors from escaping the town. Upon being questioned by a citizen, he responds by saying that he owns the companies in this town and pays for everyone's meals.

He then attempts to rally the citizens into pushing his cart, commenting that their lives are not worth as much as his cart. He is then confronted by Mikasa Ackermann, who tells him that her comrades are dying trying to buy time for the citizens to evacuate, but he simply responds that it is natural for soldiers to die for the sake of protecting people. This enrages Mikasa who approaches him and threatens to kill him. This causes him to reluctantly order his men to remove the cart from the gate so the citizens can escape.[1]

The Uprising arc

Reeves sends his subordinates to kidnap Eren Jaeger and Historia Reiss when the Special Operations Squad arrives in Trost. Outside the warehouse where the hostages are being held, he asks his men if they are sure about the identities of their captives and is unhappy that they have not been checked for disguises yet. He refers to this job as their last chance as he goes inside. He says they need to strip their captives, but before he can begin, Mikasa attacks.[4]

Reeves is caught by Levi Squad

They manage to capture all the kidnappers including Reeves. Levi decides to question Reeves, and Reeves pleads for leniency, saying he does not know anything. However, Mikasa recognizes him as the merchant whose wagon was blocking the Trost evacuation and tells Levi that his staff calls him "boss." Levi continues questioning Reeves, and Reeves confesses that he does not want to help the Military Police so much as he was forced to. If he does not cooperate, his life as well as the lives of his son and employees will be forfeit. Levi proposes that the Reeves Company take up with the Scout Regiment in exchange for protection and aid in rebuilding Trost, to which Reeves reluctantly agrees.

Under the pretense of showing them where Levi is hiding, Reeves leads two Interior Squad members, Ralph and Sannes, into an ambush conducted by Squad Levi. As the two men are captured, Reeves' son Flegel asks him if they will finally be safe, which Reeves admits he is not sure of. Flegel begins to complain, but Reeves smacks him and explains that good merchants must be able to recognize and pursue future profits, not just instant gratification.

Returning to Trost, Reeves stops his wagon to allow Flegel to urinate. As he is waiting, Reeves is confronted by Kenny Ackermann, who slits his throat for betraying the MPs.[2]

The next day, the Military Police would bring Erwin Smith to the spot Dimo was murdered and accuse the Scout Regiment for the committing crime. Before he is taken away, Erwin would thank Dimo for supporting the city of Trost and vows to avenge him.[5]
