Reginald Varley is a character in L.A. Noire. He is a suspect in "The Gas Man" case.

BiographyEdit

BackgroundEdit

Varley previously lived in Detroit where he committed an act of murder. He fled to Los Angeles to escape the authorities. While in L.A., Varley worked as a contractor for InstaHeat, he did installments and maintenance for the company's customers. Varley's boss, Ivan Rasic overlooked Varley's warrant for murder due to the need to hire installers.

Varley was approached by the Suburban Redevelopment Fund who requested his help in order help further their housing plans. Varley accepted their bribe and installed water heaters into the new housing developments. Varley also did free maintenance services on Sawyer and Morelli home water heaters. These families were holdouts, hence Varley correctly suspected that the SRF gave free service as incentive to sell to Elysian Fields Development.

Events of L.A. NoireEdit

Due to his murder warrant and employment with InstaHeat, Varley became a suspect for a series of arsons. To add to the suspicion, a box of mosquito coils were found in Varley's locker, a favored time delayed fuse for arsonists. However, Varley was actually holding them for Matthew Ryan since his locker was filled with fifth columnist pamphlets.

Varley was approached and arrested by Detectives Cole Phelps and Herschel Biggs at his work site. During interrogation, Phelps suspected that Varley's motive was part of foul play of the SRF, however Varley deflected any indications of a conspiracy. With Ryan being charged for the arsons, Varley was extradited back to Detroit to face his murder charge.

TriviaEdit

  • Varley can be seen being interrogated in the third trailer.
  • During The Gas Man case, Varley is one of two suspects that can be charged along with Matthew Ryan. However, charging Varley will earn an ending in which Phelps is screamed at by Lachlan McKelty and will result in a maximum three star case rating.
