Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
וַיֹּ֨אמֶר אֲלֵהֶ֣ם ׀ רְאוּבֵן֮ אַל־תִּשְׁפְּכוּ־דָם֒ הַשְׁלִ֣יכוּ אֹת֗וֹ אֶל־הַבּ֤וֹר הַזֶּה֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר בַּמִּדְבָּ֔ר וְיָ֖ד אַל־תִּשְׁלְחוּ־ב֑וֹ לְמַ֗עַן הַצִּ֤יל אֹתוֹ֙ מִיָּדָ֔ם לַהֲשִׁיב֖וֹ אֶל־אָבִֽיו׃
And Reuben went on, “Shed no blood! Cast him into that pit out in the wilderness, but do not touch him yourselves” intending to save him from them and restore him to his father.
Reuven, who refused to kill Yosef and instead recommended that they throw him in a pit, was reincarnated in Rabbi Eliezer HaGadol.
On the other hand, the other 10 brothers who conspired to kill Yosef were reincarnated into the 10 Harugei Malchut, the 10 martyrs.
(Mishnat Hagilgulim p.376: Ari Zal in Sefer Halikutim)
