Diane Rollins appears in The Patriot in Purgatory. She was present in the Pentagon during the 9/11 attacks, remembering a man with a thick beard lifting a concrete block off her but dismissing him as a hallucination as she couldn't believe someone of his build could have lifted such a great weight.

Some years later, Agent Seeley Booth and Doctor Temperance Brennan came to talk to Diane, where they revealed that her savior was former soldier Tim Murphy, who had died from injuries sustained while saving Diane and two of her colleagues; Diane had been identified as having a connection to the death as her blood was on Murphy's clothes. Saddened at the news that the man who had saved her life was dead, Diane and her colleagues attended Murphy's funeral.
