Reyna Diaz was an Outsider in the post-Locust War era. She's the mother of Kait Diaz, and is Oscar Diaz's sister-in-law, both of whom were a part of her village.


25 years after the end of the Locust War, Reyna was the leader of an Outsider village, taking over the role after her husband's death. She relied upon her brother-in-law, Oscar, to train and protect the villagers. JD Fenix and Delmont Walker, having left the Coalition of Ordered Governments and gone AWOL, sought refuge with Reyna's village after warning her of a COG retaliation to the Outsider's raids against the COG.

Under her orders, the villagers let back on their raids (after the disaster on Settlement 2) to maintain peace with the COG. However, their generator broke down, so she tasked JD and Del to get a fabricator from Settlement 5, as they promised that they could steal the fabricator without provoking the COG. She had Oscar and Kait go with them. After bringing back a Fabricator, Jinn speaks to Reyna via Shepherd, threatening to attack her village for stealing COG citizens. They manage to fend off a DeeBee attack, and after the attacks were repulsed, she became angry at JD and Del for the attack on her village, too angry to listen to the fact that Jinn attacked for a different reason. She then had the two repower their generator with the Fabricator.

Overnight, mysterious creatures attacked the village. Reyna locked JD, Del and Kait in the generator building to protect them. A large being personally attacked her; she managed to cut off its hand before being overpowered. After watching Oscar get abducted, she slumped herself against a pile of logs before the being grabbed her too.

When Marcus was in the pods, he felt Reyna, and told Kait that the Swarm did not pod Reyna.

In the end, after defeating the Hive Beast, Marcus, JD, Del and Kait find Reyna in captivity, mutating due to how the Swarm treated her. While mostly human, she asked Kait to cut the flesh connecting her to the hive, aware that doing so would result in death. Before dying, she hands her an heirloom from her mother, which is revealed to be a Locust symbol.

Personality and Traits

Reyna was a fierce warrior and smart tactician who disapproved of Kait's connection with JD.[1] Though not fond of JD and Del, she allows them to stay with her village when they warn her about an impending COG response to her village's raiding.[2]
