Reika is a new character introduced in Metal Slug Attack. She made her debut in the 3rd United Front.
Reika is a member of the Regular Army who passed the officer's test under only one year of training. She comes from the famed Bradford family, known for their talented soldiers. Reika is often compared to Fio, another soldier from a military family, and she considers Fio her rival. She appears to have a nihilstic view on life.
Reika carries a numerous amount of weapons on herself, making her much more dangerous than she appears. Even the parasol she normally carries around is a weapon.
Despite her skills, Reika tries her hardest to remain "lady-like". Despite her immense combat skills, she is rather carefree and dislikes training more than what is required of her.
Reika and her volunteer corps are called into action in "United Front the 3rd" when the Regular Army is under attack by the Rebel Army and are on the verge of defeat. Their presence allows the Regular Army to repel the attack, and when two soldiers compliment Fio, she vows to triumph her rival one day. She quietly leaves the base and on the way back home, finds a speck of gold on her robes and shrugs it off.
Reika later accompanies Ralf and several soldiers stationed on an island base. She is disturbed by the multiple fish corpses on the shore and expresses her view that humanity will be destroyed by the civilization that helped them grow. When Schwarz Metzelei attacks the base, Reika fights with Ralf to repel the Invader. In the ensuing battle, Reika is wounded by Schwarz's tail, which sends Ralf into a fury.
After recovering from her injuries, Reika accompanies Louise to an island and find the wreckage of a ship, which Louise immediately identifies as Bersek's handiwork. Reika calms Louise down, telling her that there must be a reason as to why he was avoiding them. Upon analyzing the samples from the ship, she promptly informs her that Bersek was with an Invader.
