Gregory "Rat" Rathbone, previously Rathbone Reagan, is a character in Robert Muchamore's acclaimed CHERUB series. He was born in the Australian outback as the youngest son of Joel Reagan, the leader of a religious cult The Survivors. He is also the on-off boyfriend of Lauren Adams.

Background and early life[edit]

Rathbone was born in the Australian outback. He was brought up in difficult conditions, living all of his early life in the Survivor's ark, a building in North Australia home to the Survivors cult, set up by Joel Reagan. His mother committed suicide when Rathbone was young.


Rat is very intelligent, claiming to have an IQ of 197. However, he has little real-world skills due to his sheltered upbringing.
