For that matter would Reyes do better in some kind of privileged first minion role?**
** Minions, by the way, are partly defined by having a fair degree of independence, unlike flunkies - not that I'd expect to see flunkies in ACTF. I am also thinking of my own experience as a manager. I'm decent, not great - I haven't managed up that well, but I tend to put together tight knit efficient teams that work well together. When I'm managing, though, I'm not at my most innovative - I think having to be a Responsible Adult kind of takes the edge off.
Speaking as someone who currently is one--minions are mostly defined as the Secret Rulers of the Universe. If they're doing their jobs properly, they're actually in charge of their bosses to no small degree.
That's not a position I want someone with Reyes' obsessive tendencies and mastery of the sneaky to be in! I think it's better to have him as the declared leader and have someone (that he is more or less aware of, because the consequences of the alternative would eventually be dire
) managing him from the next rung down the ladder.
