Fiercely Loyal to the GCPD
|Portrayed by:||Krizia Bajos|
At some point before the events of the series, Renee Montoya joined the GCPD. Her stance on corruption and loyalty to the force earned her much respect from her uncorrupted superiors, most notably Lieutenant James Gordon. At some point, she was promoted to Sargent, possibly thanks to Gordon. She had heard rumors about the vigilante Batman, but did not approve of his methods.
Episode One: Realm of ShadowsEdit
NOTICE: The events described impacted by the player's decisions. This is only a brief summary of the events that take place. Decisions made and their impacts will be show either in italics if a single decision affects the subject of the article or tabs if both decisions affect it.
Renee first appeared along side Gordon and other GCPD officers as they arrived at City Hall, following an alarm being tripped by a group of thieves. She, along with the Lieutenant and other officers witnessed Batman's scuffle with another thief.
She later was on the scene of a gunfight with several GCPD officers and a group of mercenaries, who wore similar outfits to the City Hall thieves. She showed her disgust at the bodies, including a person that had been obliterated in an explosion and an officer who been burnt to death from within his skull.
Renee and Gordon discover Batman, who has been interrogating a mercenary who had remained behind. Upon seeing him, she raises her gun, demanding that he freeze, though she is told to stand down by Gordon. Batman gives them information he gathered from the mercenary and leaves to find Falcone.
Renee and Gordon discover the mercenary Batman was interrogating, though they both quickly deduce that the vigilante was here. Renee leaves Gordon to investigate the scene further, though fails to see Batman hiding in the rafters of the warehouse.
Montoya was among the officers that raided the Skyline Club following the acquirement/release of evidence incriminating and exposing Carmine Falcone. Upon arrival, she found that the mob boss's henchmen had already defeated, most of whom were unconscious and two dead from machine gun fire. Making their way to the office, Renee and the other officers found that Batman had already made it and defeated Falcone. She ordered the officers to open fire at the vigilante, but to no avail, as he escaped before being hit.
Episode Two: Children of ArkhamEdit
Following her arrest of Falcone, Montoya was among the officers happy for him to finally be brought to justice. As Gordon took District Attorney Harvey Dent and Bruce Wayne to see the crime lord, she voiced her support for the billionaire, in light of allegations made against his father. Some time later, she was drugged by a member of the Children of Arkham (likely Lady Arkham herself). The person then manipulated Renee into murdering the crime lord, insisting that he would be able to escape justice once again. Unable to control her anger and rage, Montoya managed to slip past Gordon and Dent, and shot Falcone dead. She was quickly subdued and arrested.
Taken to the interrogation room, Renee fell unconscious and was monitored by Gordon and Wayne. As the former went to hold of Falcone's lawyers and journalists, the latter investigated her, having seen evidence that she had been drugged. As Montoya regained consciousness, she found herself in handcuffs and being watched by Bruce. Reminded of what she had done, she went into shock after remembering what she had done. Renee managed to tell the billionaire as much as she remembered, including the person that had drugged her mentioning a "revolution". As Gordon and Dent returned, Wayne told them what Montoya had told them and left to "attend to other matters".
Episode Three: New World OrderEdit
Following the murder, Renee received some leave from the GCPD, though this was still scrutinized by the press. Determined to redeem herself for what had happened, she acted independently from the rest of the force and used her time to track down members of the Children of Arkham. At some point, she learned of the deal taking place on Arkham Island, but did not inform Gordon.
As it took place, Montoya tried to stop the group, but ended up in a gun fight. Batman, who had been asked to track her down by Gordon, discovered this by monitoring her through his drones. At the same time, Dent, the newly appointed Mayor, came under attack from members of the Children of Arkham, in an assassination attempt. Depending on what Batman chooses, two scenarios will play out.
Batman chooses to save Dent, informing Gordon that Montoya is on Arkham Island. He sends officers of the GCPD to assist her, but inadvertently informs the Children of Arkham, who are listening in on their radios systems using Wayne Tech. As Batman saved Dent, the group increased the attack near the hand off, successfully holding back the GCPD. In the process, they also managed to capture a cop, who they used to test a new version of the Arkham Drug. Regretful of what she has done, Montoya hands in her badge to Gordon, resigning from the GCPD and vowing to stop the Children of Arkham by herself.
Batman chooses to help Montoya, ordering Gordon to help Dent fend off the Children of Arkham. Arriving in the midst of the fight, Batman is able to subdue and defeat the group, destroying part of the drug cache in the process. Montoya is able to assist, taking down one of the mercenaries and holding him at gunpoint. Following the battle, she apologizes to Batman for shooting at him when he arrested Falcone, admitting that she was wrong about him. He can accept her apology or refuse to. Following this, she stays behind to arrest the group whilst Batman goes to warn Gordon that the GCPD's communications have been compromised.
Episode Four: Guardian of GothamEdit
In the following days, Montoya was reinstated as a member of the GCPD, either through coming back to her senses and rejoining willingly or her leave finishing. When Gordon receives a call from Batman, informing him of a double homicide in the suburbs of Gotham, Montoya was one of the officers to join him. When she arrived on the scene, she escorted the a boy, who had witnessed the murder and had been saved by Batman.
Episode Five: City of LightEdit
If Batman chooses to stop Penguin from hacking his tech, Dent will attack the GCPD after Commissioner Grogan. Montoya is among the officers to protect the Commissioner. During the attack, she is fired upon by one of Dent's enforcers, but is saved by Batman. She later joins Gordon in morning Grogan, after he sacrifices his life to save Batman.
Renee is seen helping the GCPD help take control of Arkham, following its inmates being released by Lady Arkham. She is one of the first officers to arrive on the scene, helping them bring the dining room under control. If Batman confronted Dent earlier that episode, she will be the one to tell him that they can manage the confusion and encourages him to go after Lady Arkham.
When Gordon is appointed Commissioner, Renee is one of the officers to attend the press conference. She joins him on stage whilst he makes his speech, asking Gotham to rally behind him. She will also inform him of Bruce Wayne's arrival, should he decide to attend the event and show his support for the newly appointed Commissioner. When an assassin makes an attempt on Gordon's life, she stands by as Bruce/Batman tackles him. She will open fire and kill the assassin, if he is unable to do so in time.
