Robin is a kind and compassionate person with a strong moral core. Both of her parents were international spies or cops when she was growing up. She didn’t know her father at all until she was five years old, and she didn’t know that Anna was her mom. She thought she was just a family friend. Anna had hidden her away to protect her; she was a target for her parents’ enemies. When she was about 12, both of her parents seemingly died in a boat explosion. Her Uncle Mac and later, Aunt Felicia, raised her. Felicia’s daughter Maxie and Georgie were like her sisters. Robin had many adventures, but she saved a lot of people’s lives as both a doctor and a hero.
A few years later, Robin fell for teen Stone, not knowing that he was HIV positive. She also became HIV positive, but Stone died. After that, she fell for Jason Morgan, who helped her get over Stone’s death. Both Stone and Jason worked for mobster Sonny, which didn’t make Mac (the police commissioner) happy. Robin became good lifelong friends with both Jason and Sonny. She and Jason have had an on-again, off-again romance over the years.
Robin went to Yale for college. At some point, she become a doctor, specializing in drug protocol research. In 2001, she learned that her mother, Anna, was alive and living in Pine Valley, but she had amnesia. Anna remembered Robin but couldn’t remember what happened to Robert. A few years later, Robin returned to Port Charles and joined the staff of General Hospital. There she met Patrick Drake. They dated, had a few breaks here and there, but eventually married and had their daughter, Emma.
Robin was thought to be killed in a lab explosion and fire in 2012, but she was kidnapped and held captive by Jerry Jacks and Cesar Faison (among others). She was rescued by her parents and reunited with her family, but then she had to help Jason, who was also being held captive. Her family is threatened so that she has to stay and work on Jason and also find a cure for Helena’s illness. Eventually, Jason gets free and rescues her, and she reunites with her family.
