In 1995, Diane provided her expertise to FOXHOUND agent Solid Snake, informing him of the weaknesses of each of Outer Heaven's mercenaries during Operation Intrude N313.[2] The only enemies whose weakness she could not identify were the Bloody Brad cyberoids and Outer Heaven's secret Commander-in-Chief, Big Boss.[3][4] Diane apparently had romantic feelings for Snake, but never expressed them to him.[4] She lived with her older brother Steve, who would often answer Snake's calls only to be annoyed with him and provide excuses for Diane's absence.[5][6][7]

Behind the scenes

Diane (ダイアン Daian?) appears in Metal Gear, where she provides the player insight about the bosses' weaknesses, except for Bloody Brad and Big Boss,[3][4] and some traps in Outer Heaven.[8][note 1] Her contact frequency is initially 120.33,[2] but changes to 120.91 later in the game.[9]
