A slow nod was given when she recognized who he was, though he backstepped swiftly when she turned from threat to fan in record time. The transformation caught him off-guard.
Comics. He knew they made them and vaulted his exploits, even exaggerating them to a degree, and some were ones he honestly wouldn’t have even come up with. He was a good detective but the way they pulled theories out of the sky with some of these comics was sheer imagination.
Regardless, it was enough to dissuade some while giving others hope.
“Yes…” he sounded unsure of the situation now. “About the scientists. Several went missing near the new Raccoon City and searching the ruins or the mountains brought nothing. Nothing except to bring me here to see who lives isolated here and to what end. Do you know anything?”
She must have known something since she was wary enough to be armed out here where the flora and fauna definitely must have mutated.
Oh, she must have spooked him. He probably wasn’t expecting to run into anyone clear up here who knew who he was. Let alone someone who was a fan of his work. Diana’s grin turned to a nervous smile and she wuickly stopped bobbing up and down. He was too serious to have her just giddy like this.
So, suppressing her urge to, well, flip out, she put her spear on her back, slinging it in place. She had to help him any way she could. What else was a fan to do with on of their heroes or idols? Be they from a book or not…
“Oh right, the question.” Slowly, her arms crossed over her chest, letting her head tilt left, then right. Thinking. “Well… If they worked for… Umbrella…” She nearly spat out the last word, tensing up at the mere mention of that company. “Then they might have been silenced by their own company, or.. .Well, died up here if they dared to try and survive too long. There are some dangerous creatures, especially in the city ruins. A lot of people go missing down there, because of mutated infected still sometimes slipping up from the old underground HIVE. On top of that, there are coyotes, wolves, wild dogs, cougars and lions that roam about. This is the wild mountains after all.”
Her hands went back at her sides, looking up at Batman. No loner afraid, or intimidated, not at all. She was friendly. “I’m not sure where they are right now, but I can tell you where they may have gone, maybe guide you around. but I doubt there is anything left. There is a reason no one comes up here brrrruBATMAN.”
Diana nearly tripped over her own words, and covered it up by faking a shiver, glancing around. “Wow, suddenly chilly, huh? Yeah, let’s go inside!” Quickly, she walked back to the green house door, motioning for Batman to follow.
