Diana Allers is a human Alliance News Network war correspondent and regular on the Alliance News Network's "Battlespace". She is originally from Milgrom, Bekenstein, and considers herself a "colony kid". Diana is a potential romance option for both male and female Commander Shepard.


Recruitment Edit

On Shepard's first visit to the Citadel, Diana can be seen at the lounge of Normandy Dock: Bay D24 attempting to extract information from Normandy ensign Copeland. If spoken to, she asks for permission to serve as embedded journalist onboard the Normandy. Allers is aware of Shepard's track record with reporters, claiming that antics like punching Khalisah al-Jilani hasn't exactly endeared the Commander to the galactic audience if that happened, although she makes the case that it can change with her help. Shepard may choose whether to allow her to join the crew.

Once onboard, she takes up residence in the starboard cargo bay. Diana aids the war effort as long as she is on the Normandy. Shepard can, however, ask her to leave the Normandy at any time.

During one of the mission downtimes, Allers can be found arguing back and forth with Ensign Copeland regarding an allegedly offensive opinion piece. She claims that sacrificing Terra Nova translates to saving five other colonies, provoking the ensign into taking her seriously. Diana stands firm in her convictions but is willing to make it clear on public record that the report is merely her own opinion. Shepard can choose to intervene and pull the plug, or berate Copeland into standing down: whatever the decision, Diana acquiesces and breaks out of the argument.

If Diana is not allowed aboard the Normandy, she will embed with the SSV Shasta, an Alliance dreadnought. A news report on the Citadel later announces that the SSV Shasta was destroyed in the Horse Head Nebula, killing everyone on board including Diana. She leaves a substantial donation to the University of Milgrom's Rossberg School of Journalism, which the Alliance News Network matches.

Interviews Edit

Allers requests some interviews after a few key events. The first interview takes place after the mission on Tuchanka. Diana asks Shepard's opinion on people who think humanity is starting another Rachni War or Krogan Rebellions, which Shepard duly explains by saying that the current situation is very different from that of the Krogan Rebellions. If Urdnot Wrex is the krogan clan chief, she also asks whether Shepard is aware that the krogan are petitioning the Council for rights to an embassy and a colony world, to which Shepard can either agree on the negotiation or end the interview.

The second interview opportunity comes after Shepard defends the Citadel from a Cerberus attack. Considering that Cerberus — described by her as a small terrorist group — managed to hit the Citadel, she asks whether anywhere is safe. She also mentions about humanity's dire situation and questions how long any new Alliance administration is expected to last. If Shepard does not refuse to answer her question, she asks Shepard another question from her Thessia viewers about Shepard's supposed ties to Cerberus, much to Shepard's chagrin.

The third and final interview takes place after the mission on Rannoch has been completed. Her questions varies between asking about the geth as allies or about the quarians, depending on the actions Shepard took on Rannoch.

If Shepard has completed all three interviews with Allers, and engages in ambient dialogue with her after the assault on Cronos Station, she puts down her thoughts into text and emails the Commander an extended message.

Normal is the best revenge


From: Diana Allers


Commander:
 
I don't know if you're aware how much you mean to people, but I am. The things I see in Battlespace's mailbox could make a geth grow tear ducts. Page after page of people asking you to go save their mother's planet, or the homeworld they outgrew, or the mining colony they sank their fortunes into. They don't know that you can't do it all. They just know Commander Shepard beat a Reaper once and can do it again.

I know how they feel. When I heard about Bekenstein, it was like all the nerves in my body were cut. But I need to believe that this isn't the end. I need to believe that you're going to destroy the Reapers and I'm going to film it as it happens. And when the fight is over, and my signal goes out on tightbeam, people are going to come together from all over the galaxy. They're going to watch from their couches, and they'll celebrate. And one day, they'll laugh again.

The laughing part is important. I want you to make it all normal again, Shepard. Because that's the best revenge I can think of.

-- Diana

P.S. If I end up making it out of this but you don't, I'll make sure you get a hero's funeral and a Bekenstein wake. That's like an Irish wake, but not as sober and reserved.

Romance Edit

“Well, I can't refuse an exclusive.”
Chobot and shepard
If Shepard does not cut the second interview with Diana short, she teasingly tells Shepard to be careful, coyly suggesting that she'll follow the Commander home if she's continued to be indulged.

After the interview concerning the quarians and the geth concludes, Shepard asks if Diana's going to file her story. She replies that her story is easy enough to do later. She has a good lead, she knows how to finish it, and she claims she just needs "the right body", strongly hinting of her interests to the Commander. If Shepard chooses to pursue the relationship, Diana cautiously remarks that the relationship has to be kept in secrecy or her career will be jeopardised. Shepard reassures her that the relationship will stay between them, and they kiss.

However, if Shepard has locked in a romance with another person prior to the post-Rannoch interview, there will be no flirting or kissing; Shepard will simply repeat their earlier admonition to Allers that she get her story out to the people.

Trivia Edit

  • Diana's romance is unique in that she does not become a committed partner and there is neither a love scene nor are there any post-romance cutscenes, unlike the other romance options. Romancing her does not grant the Paramour achievement either.
