Season OneEdit

Realm of ShadowsEdit

Regina and Bob were among the patrons at Harvey Dent's fundraiser for his campaign for mayor. She and Robert conversed with the two, with conversation points being concerns that Dent could change the city for the better and concerns over the vigilante Batman. Regina also showed concern over Bruce and the impact that watching the murder might have had on him. If Bruce told them about Harvey's plans to change the city, Regina will assure the District Attorney that she and Robert would support his campaign for Mayor.

Regina and Robert were also present during the announcement of the Thomas and Martha Wayne Mental Health Clinic. During the event, they stood up on stage but did not speak out during the event. They witnessed as the press revealed evidence of an account managed by Thomas Wayne and Carmine Falcone.

New World OrderEdit

Following the reveal of more of Thomas Wayne's criminal activities, including the drugging and incarceration of Gotham citizens to Arkham Asylum, Regina and the other Wayne Enterprises board members were called in to decide on what should happen to Bruce and his position at the company. Before the meeting, she visited Bruce's office, where she was discovered by the Bruce. She revealed what was going to happen and whether he would be able to stay at the company. Though she promised to fight for Bruce, she was unable to persuade the other board members to change their minds. Ultimately, she went with their decision, though was critical of their chosen replacement for Bruce, Oswald Cobblepot.

Following this, she broke the news to Bruce, telling him what had happened and how they were to deal with the situation. She also revealed Oswald's appointment to Bruce, something he can willingly accept or try to warn her of his alliance with the Children of Arkham. Upon asking Bruce to go, Oswald tried to goad him into attacking him by dropping a graduation present from his butler and guardian Alfred Pennyworth. Depending on what Bruce does, two possibilities will happen.

If Bruce lashes out and hits Oswald, Regina scolds him for this action and calls for security. As Bruce is escorted out by security, she checks on Oswald to make sure he was not too badly harmed by the incident.

If Bruce refrains from attacking Oswald, instead picking up the broken present or demand Oswald does, she lets him leave peacefully. Though Regina notices him, she does sees this as frustration that Cobblepot taking his position. As Bruce leaves, she arranges for the IT department to set Oswald up on the company network.

Regina was in charge of setting up the press conference announcing Bruce's resignation. Though she helped prepare a damage control statement and Bruce's speech, influence from Oswald meant that it harshly treated him and his family's legacy. In the morning, she texted Bruce to let him know that the conference was ready.

When he got down there, she, alongside Oswald, greeted him and told him what was to happen during the conference. Regina also tried to keep interactions between Bruce and Oswald friendly, hoping to put on a good show. After telling Bruce what was going to happen, she promised to try and help him repair his publicity, along with try to restore his position at the company. However, in return, she asked that he followed the teleprompter and not create a scene.

As she addressed the crowd of reporters, she remained unaware of Bruce and Oswald's interactions behind her back. As she called Bruce up to stage she joined Oswald and stood by as he addressed the crowd. Depending on Bruce's actions, Regina either thanks Bruce for doing so, hoping to keep her end of the bargain, or scolds him for his actions, telling him that he should be ashamed of himself.

It is unknown whether Regina tried to stop Bruce from his attack on Oswald, but it's likely she gave up on him after the attack. By the time Cobblepot's links to the Children of Arkham was exposed, it's possible that Regina learnt the truth about his drugging, was able to forgive Bruce and helped get his postion as CEO back at Wayne Enterprises

Season Two: The Enemy WithinEdit

The EnigmaEdit

In the following months after the Children of Arkham's defeat, Regina continued to work as Wayne Enterprises' chairwoman of the board. After bumping into Bruce in the corridors, she reported on the financial information, which had been improving since Bruce had been reinstated as CEO. During the discussion, Regina noticed Bruce was carrying a briefcase and enquired about it. He then left her to talk to Lucius Fox. When a homing missile hit Wayne Enterprises, Regina was seemingly unaffected by the blast or the fallout following this.

The PactEdit

Regina would encounter Bruce another two weeks later, where she found him in an elevator with two mysterious individuals. Enquiring about the purpose of their visit, Regina was confronted by one of them when she asked whether it was a joke. When the woman requested Regina apologized, Bruce can either ask her to or for her to let her go. As she left the elevator, Regina told him that he needed "better friends".

Same StitchEdit

The following only occurs if John Doe becomes the criminal Joker.

Whilst in a meeting with the Wayne Enterprises board about Bruce's association with wanted now wanted felons John Doe and Harleen Quinzel, Regina is confronted by the billionaire. Confronting him on his association with the criminals, Regina is handed a weapons shipment that she seems to be responsible for. Shocked that she is tied to this, the meeting is interrupted by Harley Quinn and her men, who take the board, Regina and Bruce included, hostage.

When Joker arrives, he reveals to the board how Bruce has betrayed him and unveils a dispenser filled with a bioweapon. Hoping to get revenge on Bruce, Joker has his men place gas masks on Bruce and his men, before he detonates the dispenser, infecting the entire board. Like the others, Regina is exposed the virus and is too weak to call security. As she dies, Harley Quinn hits her with her hammer, making her final moments even more painful.

PersonalityEdit

Regina seemed to be interested in Gotham's welfare and prosperity, attending events that were charitable and funding endeavours to improve the city. She was quite hopeful for the future, believing in change for the better. Regina also seemed to care about Wayne Enterprises and the company's reputation. She would also bring up concerns with the board before consulting Bruce. It is implied that Regina was an alcoholic, as Alfred mentions that he had to drag her away from the bar during Harvey Dent's campaign fundraiser.

RelationshipsEdit

Bob ZellerbachEdit

It is unknown how Regina and Bob met, but the two had married at years before Bruce's time at Wayne Enterprises. Though she disagreed with his pessimistic views, she would try to convince him to causes she deemed noble.

Bruce Wayne/BatmanEdit

Regina and Bruce seemed to have a personal friendship, being socially connected and working in Wayne Enterprises. Though she would work with Bruce on multiple efforts and fought against him being forced away from Wayne Enterprises, she would often take the board's side over his. If Bruce's actions posed a threat to the company's reputation, she would report these directly to the board without his knowledge, especially after an encounter with Harley Quinn.

TriviaEdit

  • Regina's comment on how Gotham's wealthiest citizens should "flock together like birds" is a indirect reference to the Court of Owls, a group of Gotham's elite who dabble in criminal activities and enemies of Batman.
