Current and Past Occupation
Past: Chief of Staff
Robin was six-years-old when she came to Port Charles with her mother, Anna Devane. Robert Scorpio, her father, wasn't even aware that he had a daughter, and was shocked when he found out. They spent a short time bonding before he moved away with his new wife, and Anna married Duke Lavery. Robin adored her stepfather.
Robin didn't see her dad again until she and her mother had been kidnapped by Cesar Faison in an attempt to secure a crystal that Robin had discovered on Spoon Island. It was reported that Holly, Robert's new wife had died in an accident, and Robert returned to rescue Anna and his daughter. Duke had been killed, and Robert and Anna reunited. With Robin, they moved into the old Webber house and became a family.
She was left in the care of her uncle, Mac, when Faison kidnapped Anna again, and Robert went to find her. A short time later, the WSB reported that a boat explosion had killed both of Robin's parents.
Robin met Stone Cates while working for a teen hotline and quickly became attracted to him. Their relationship didn't set well with Mac because Stone lived with, and worked for, mobster Sonny Corinthos. Mac was even more upset when he learned that Stone had tested positive for HIV and that Robin had shared unprotected sex with the young man.
Stone eventually became an AIDS patient with no hope for a future. Robin was tested for the disease, and the first exam returned a negative result. The second was positive, but she kept her condition from Stone, not wanting to cause anguish in his final days. Ultimately, she revealed the truth to him right before he passed. Robin was shattered when he died.
Robin buried herself in her work and became friends, and later lovers, with Jason Quartermaine. He had been injured in an accident and was undergoing therapy. Their relationship didn't last because she finally realized what a dangerous lifestyle he led, and she couldn't bear the thought of losing another person she loved. Robin left for Paris.
She returned at the request of Jasper Jacks when Brenda Barrett had a mental breakdown. Robin, realizing how much she missed Port Charles and her friends, decided to stay. She and Jason reunited, and the two moved in together. When Carly had a breakdown, Robin and Jason assumed the duty of caring for her son, Michael, and after Carly's release from the mental hospital, she moved in with them. Robin and Carly didn't get along, and Robin moved out and left town again.
As a research doctor, Robin was in Paris working on an experimental memory drug when she learned that Jason was suffering from side affects of his earlier accident. Still fighting her attraction to him, she agreed to come back to Port Charles to treat him. Her expertise saved Jason's life, and provided her with the opportunity to meet Dr. Patrick Drake.
Robin and Patrick were like oil and water. His arrogance and playboy attitude annoyed her, while he found an impenetrable wall around her emotions. When she finally shared her health secret with him, he didn't run away as she had expected. Both of them fought their growing attachment, but finally, Patrick appeared beneath Robin's window with flowers, a boom box playing their favorite song, and a profession of his love.
Robin spoke with Luke Spencer about using an experimental drug to bring Laura back to her former mental state, and he eagerly accepted the suggestion to try it. The medication worked. Laura awoke after years in a catatonic state, but the result was short-term. Although she spent a few days getting to know her grown children before drifting away again, Robin was racked with guilt with giving the family false hope.
Robin eventually decided that she wanted to become a mother, even though Patrick was definately not the marrying kind. She sought sperm donors, but ended up conceiving with Patrick during a one-nighter. Determined not to make him feel trapped, she decided to be a single mother. Patrick came to embrace the notion of fatherhood and finally was able to convince her to marry him. They decided to get married before their baby was born. Maxie put together a fabulous wedding, but Robin's water broke as soon as she got to the altar. She was rushed to GH and gave birth via c-section to Emma. Her fears of passing along her HIV status to her baby were put to rest when Emma was determined to be HIV free.
Robin and Patrick settled into parenthood with more than their share of bumps because Robin suffered from postpartum depression. They bought a new house and Robin stayed home with Emma but did not bond.
A biotoxin scare hit GH during a blizzard. Robin didn't know what was going on, but Emma spiked a fever and they set out to the ER. Robin's minivan ran out of gas and her judgment was impaired by her condition. She took feverish Emma out in the blizzard and ended up losing her in the snow. Maxie and Johnny came along and took Emma to Mercy Hospital. Finally, with Emma's life hanging in the balance, Robin's maternal instincts kicked in and she was able to nurture her daughter.
Robin eventually received help for her postpartum depression and things were going well for the Drake's until Patrick's ex-girlfriend came to town. Robin initially befriended her, but Lisa continued to flirt with Patrick and remind him of the good ole days.
When Robin went to Africa, Patrick succumbed to Lisa and slept with her. Robin kicked him out when she found out about it, but Lisa wasn't finished with the couple as she started stalking them. Robin eventually forgave Patrick and they reconciled, but Lisa's reign of terror continued for some time. They thought it was over after she held Robin, Patrick, Maxie and Spinelli hostage and stuck herself with her own needle putting herself into a coma.
Anthony wanted a partner in crime so he had a doctor pump Lisa full of drugs in order to wake her up. Lisa sprang into action and attacked Patrick, Robin and Elizabeth on a boat where everyone was celebrating Matt's research getting published. Lisa tried to inject Patrick with Robin's HIV infected blood, but Robin prevented that from happening. After struggling with Lisa, Robin passed out and woke up bleeding, but couldn't remember what happened. Lisa eventually turned up dead floating in the water.
Robin then learned her drug protocol for her HIV wasn't working and feared the worst. She asked Jason to help her leave town and Elizabeth to take her place in Patrick and Emma's life. Patrick got wind of what she was doing and convinced her to stick around. She started a new protocol, which worked and all was right with the world again.
Jason began have dizzy spells and headaches. Robin began working on a treatment for him in the lab. Maxie stopped by to vent about Matt and accidentally turned on a gas source. In Robin's absence, Patrick got trapped in the lab with the fumes and Robin saved him. However, she had to run back in for Jason's medication. The fumes got too bad and the doors automatically locked behind her. She passed Jason's medication to Patrick through a two way box and begged Patrick to walk away. Patrick ran for help, but returned to witness the lab exploding with Robin inside.
Robin was presumed dead, but it was revealed she was being held prisoner by an unknown captor.
