Of course, the fact that Lero-ro think he's an irregular, doesn't prove that he is one. I think he is. Maybe it's not really a fact, but since he was referred to as one, I don't have much of a reason to doubt it. So far, anyway.
Perhaps Headon does stop irregulars from advancing from time to time. They can't all be super strong, like Mazino and others. It is funny he had a bodyguard ready for Rach. It's really hard to discuss this because we know too little about Headon and his plans.

secondhand report of Quant's delivered by Yu Han Sung. And note, Quant didn't specify which person was an irregular, nor did he say they were two. Between Rachel and Akryung, Akryung definitely looks the part of an irregular more than Rachel.
I heard somewhere that it was made canon (I don't sound very convincing, right? ) that Rachel was the meant irregular.
Maybe it's a common trait among irregulars. We're led to believe that all of them are super strong, or at least have insane control over Shinsoo (Don't know what the deal with Rachel is.). Is it because they are coming from an environment without Shinsoo? Maybe that's why the people who live inside the tower are more vulnerable to Shinsoo attacks and the people who come outside aren't affected by it that much. Still brings up a question of why they are so good at manipulating with it.
We have seen in the character cards that a lot of the Rankers have more physical enhancements, but some don't. Physically, Yu Han Sung is inept, even more inept than some of the 2nd Floor Regulars, although his physical reinforcement, whatever that actually means, is A-rank, so take that as you will.
Funny thing is, I don't think even SIU himself bothered too much with this subject. People just need to have some amount of physical readiness in order to climb to 134th floor. We have yet to see a physically weak Ranker. I suppose those that are weaker, like Yu Han Sung make up for it with Shinsoo strengthening. For those that read Naruto, closest example would be Sakura. She's more of a cerebral type, but thanks to that, she has great chakra control and can produce devastating physical attacks.
