Fascinated by lizards' ability to grow back their limbs, Rekt Ld intentionally cut off his hand to test out the formula he’d made from the DNA of various reptiles. Initially, the experiment was a success, but then his body started to dangerously mutate... Forced to admit that the changes were irreversible, he now devotes himself to putting his new abilities to best use and maintaining his sanity.
- He is based of Curtis "Curt" Connors or the Lizard, a villain in the Marvel Comics. Both were scientists who used lizard's DNA to grow a body part (Connors' arm). In both cases, the experiments failed, and they transformed into lizards.
- His name is a play on the word, wrecked, written like the stereotype of a young gamer trying to be cool online.
