Reegal was a member of the Guardians of the Universe and lived billions of years ago when he along with his kin decided to police the cosmos. Their plan was to bring order to a chaotic universe and thus they tapped into the power of the Emotional Spectrum. This saw the Guardians empower an agent to serve their whims who became known as The First Lantern. According to Krona, the Guardians betrayed this agent and turned against him. The Guardians claimed that this was because the First Lantern was too dangerous to be allowed free. Thus, they chained the First Lantern in The Chamber of Shadows that was to serve as his prison for all of time. A group of Oans were chosen to serve as wardens to the prison and this group remained in the Chamber where they became known as The Hidden Ones. One of their number included Reegal who last knew that his kin had created an android police force called the Manhunters and he held the hope that the Guardians would save the universe.

Rise of The Third Army

Across the centuries, Reegal and his fellow Hidden Ones remained within the Chamber of Shadows thus they were unaware of events that occurred outside the prison. Following the War of The Green Lanterns, the Guardians traveled to the Chamber where they met Reegal who asked his kin whether they had saved the universe. However, the Guardians claimed that circumstances had changed and that they required the First Lantern. This went against the oath that the Hidden Ones had taken as they were well aware of the danger posed by the First Lantern if he was freed. Thus, they attacked the Guardians as they intended to honor their oath. During the battle, Reegal's throat was slit by one of the Guardians and the Hidden Ones were shocked as a result which allowed the Oans to take the First Lantern from the Chamber. The seemingly dead Reegal was left alone in part of the Chamber of Shadows when Black Hand was teleported into the prison. After he died, William Hand discovered Reegal in the outer corridor of the Chamber of Shadows. The Black Lantern resurrected Reegal as an undead being where he interrogated the dead Hidden One about the location of the prison.
