Reginald 'Reggie' Ledoux is a methamphetamine cook for the Iron Crusaders biker gang, a former cellmate of Charlie Lange, and a focal point of Cohle and Hart's investigation.


Ledoux was noted by Charlie Lange, who was his cellmate for a time at Louisiana State Penitentiary, as being a man of massive frame as well as having intellectual prowess, which his might have used to intimidate other inmates. Lange also mentioned how Ledoux would always spout "crazy shit" to other convicts. However, also according to Charlie "he was so big nobody ever told him to shut the fuck up".

Ledoux is also an expert chemist, as he spends his time manufacturing crystal meth and lysergic acid for the biker gang the Iron Crusaders. He was also apparently able to remove toxins and make a low level drug out of cooking oil while in Angola.

His other interests are not known, as his only dialogue in "The Secret Fate of All Life", and the entire series concerns the mythos of Carcosa and the Yellow King.

Spiral brand

  • Reggie has a spiral brand on his back similar to the markings left on at least two of the victims. Reggie apparently told Charlie that this symbol is the "sign" of the satanic cult Ledeux is/was involved with.
