Reinhardt is wearing the suit of his mentor Balderich in this skin, in a lot of ways both the suits of the instructor and student are very similar, with adaption to the medieval knight. Reinhardt looks a lot menacing in this skin with the horns on the helmet and claws on the gauntlets.
The skin is Balderich’s suit witch vines growing on his hammer and plant growth, moss and decay on top of the suit with years of decline.
