Throughout the Series Edit

In Eden, she lands on Earth onboard the Gagarin and exits the ship with Miles Shaw. While she heads prisoners towards the village, they hear a gunshot, which means that they are not alone.

In Sleeping Giants, she along with Shaw interrogates Clarke after she was captured by Paxton McCreary. At first, Clarke refuses to talk but decides to co-operate after realizing that Diyoza's prisoners are closing in on Madi. Clarke agrees to tell them everything and in return Diyoza orders her people to spare Madi's life. Clarke makes it clear that there's no one else in the valley besides her and Madi. Diyoza then asks Clarke to bring her up to date on how the world ended, which Clarke replies how first Nuclear Apocalypse ended the world. When Spacekru landed on the ground, they meet Madi who appeared from the bushes, she tells them that they need to hurry because Clarke is in trouble. However, they were spotted by prisoners patrol who reported to Diyoza that there are other people. Diyoza intensifies her torture for Clarke, claiming that she lied to her. Madi and Bellamy arrive just when Diyoza is dragging Clarke outside to torture her. Bellamy asks Diyoza to spare Clarke's life or else all the 283 prisoners in the ship would die. To prove that he's not bluffing, he shows Diyoza a mug that he carried from the ship. Diyoza agrees with the deal.

In Pandora's Box, she and Shaw notice that someone has hacked into the Eligius IV computer system. Shaw tries to hack back but Raven proves to be a challenge. Then she asks Shaw if he able to open the docking bay door to depressurize the ship. But its inhabitants manage to open all cryopod with the rest of the prisoners. She cancels her order meaning that Raven and Murphy are trapped on the ship. Later, Diyoza orders Shaw to launch missiles and attack the bunker to kill Octavia and her people. But Shaw refuses to launch the missiles, telling Diyoza that the hacker, Raven has blocked the missile launch codes.

In Shifting Sands, she, Shaw, and Paxton McCreary on the Gagarin spot Wonkru marching to the desert towards the Valley. After unlocking the missiles they fire it at the Wonkru camp. However, some of the Wonkru members survived the sandstorm.

In Acceptable Losses, she interrogates Echo.

Personality Edit

She is cold and sarcastic. She is the alpha wolf among the criminals and is fearless, confident and very calculating. She seems friendly towards her allies but most likely keeps them close for the sake of numbers not friendship. She's also very maternal and has displayed a softer side to her unborn daughter.

Physical Appearance Edit

Diyoza has pale skin, blue-grey eyes, light brown hair with blonde highlights and hair done up with bangs. She also has a large scar on her neck. She along with most of the prisoners wears the armor of the former security guards including a stamped service badge on the right chest plate. She bears a tattoo on her shoulder of the flag of the former United States which is hardly recognisable as it has been burnt off and shows mostly scar tissue.

Relationships Edit

Paxton McCreary Edit

Not know much relationship between those two, but Diyoza told him that he is her favorite mass murderer. At one point, they were sexually involved and she is pregnant with their child. However, Diyoza and McCreary have a lot of disagreements about leading the Eligius Prisoners, even when Diyoza refused to trade McCreary for Raven Reyes after he was captured by John Murphy and Emori. This made McCreary very upset with her. When Murphy reveals to McCreary that Abby's medical treatment helped cure Diyoza's people, McCreary got angry at Diyoza for keeping this a secret from him. He then tries to kill her but, stops when he finds out that Diyoza is pregnant. However, when she surrenders herself to him, he tells her that after the baby is born he will kill her. In the season 5 finale he is killed after making Earth an unsurviable planet. Diyoza doesn't feel upset by his lost because of this and his abusive nature.

Quotes Edit

Diyoza's speech to the so-called Free World from her book:

"This is Colonel Charmaine Diyoza currently in orbit transmitting from the Eligius IV spaceshuttle in low Earth orbit. As we continue our descent to the surface i issue a critical warning",

"You lined your pockets with the profits from Eligius Corporation while they built their industry on the backs of prisoner slaves. Men and Women ripped from Earth... Stripped of their rights. Forced to mine poisonous gas to make your miserable lives on Earth more comfortable... then abandoned to die alone in space … But we refused to suffer that fate."

"And today we bring you to reckoning."

"Allow us safe landing and reintegration back into our former lives, or we will release the full payload of our mining operation onto every capital of every country that defies us. 1700 tons of fuel that will level and burn the cities where you hide behind policies and lies"

"THE SWORD OF DAMOCLES hangs over your head, so choose your response wisely."

"Should you refuse, you and all of your profits will be reduced to dust when blue hell-fire rains from the sky."

"All we ask for is a second chance, peace is up to you"
