Van Howell, Reginald, III defaultsort: Van Howell, Reginald, III
Reginald "Reggie" Van Howell III, known in Japan as Houzan Gokaido (五階堂宝山, Gokaidō Hōzan) or "Mr. Elite" (エリート君, Elitekun) is the top-ranking freshman of the second year, who was set up to Duel against Chazz Princeton as a challenge to prove if the latter is worthy of returning to Obelisk Blue. He is commonly called Reggie as it is his nickname. In the English version, he insults Chazz without end, though he states he formerly admired them when they were in secondary school. In the Japanese version, he idolizes him even during the Duel, and is respectful. In the English version, he has a tendency to refer to things such as Life Points and Attack Points as simply "points", using phrases like "I pay 800 points" or "Your monster has no points."
