Robin Scorpio by
Robin is an
extremely good and moral person who sometimes lets her emotions run away
with her. However, she also has a very analytical mind. Those two sides make
her an excellent doctor. Her only real flaw is that she has been such a
serious person for so long, that she sometimes forgets to relax or have fun.
Robin did not know her parents when she was a child; she was raised by her
Aunt Filomena until she found out that a "family friend" that visited often
was really her mother, Anna Devane, a spy and double agent working for the
WSB. She soon found out, also, that her father was
another WSB agent. They raised her for a while in Port Charles, but
then they died in an explosion when she was a teen. She was then
raised by her Uncle Mac. Her mother and father were both police chiefs
in the town of Port Charles, and so was her Uncle Mac, which no doubt gave
Robin her sense of morality.
The reason Robin is so serious is that while she was still a teen, she
became HIV positive. She fell in love with ex-drug addict Stone, who
died of AIDS after unknowingly infecting Robin. Stone's death and
her own HIV status had a profound affect on Robin's life. It led
to her interest in medicine and her serious demeanor. Robin was
also briefly involved with Jason Morgan, a mobster, but they had a
serious falling out because she spilled the beans about the truth behind
Carly's son Michael's parentage and because Robin had trouble dealing
with Jason's violent career. She went off to Paris to study.
Robin has since discovered that her parents are both alive and well. Robert was working as an assassin for the WSB for the past ten years.
Anna had amnesia for a while and briefly lived in Pine
Valley. Robin is close to both of them, but she has a more rocky
relationship with her father. It took her a long time to forgive him
for not telling her that he was alive all that time.
Robin was largely a
medical research doctor in Paris. She returned to Port Charles as a
doctor when there was a town health crisis and has stayed, working on being
a more hands-on doctor at General Hospital. She fell in love with
handsome doctor Patrick Drake. They had a rocky relationship at first
because both were afraid of commitment and because he is a big flirt.
They clashed at the hospital over medical problems. Robin is also still
close to her ex-love Jason and with mobster Sonny. Robin shared an apartment with female
friends and fellow doctors Kelly and Lainey, until she moved in with
Patrick. Robin's parents can both still be seen from time to time.
Robin and Carly are not too fond of each other, but Robin is close to
Elizabeth and Patrick were married and had their daughter,
Emma, but their road was always rocky. Robin had post-partum depression and
it took Patrick and many other friends and family members to convince her
that she had a problem and to get help.
Patrick's ex-girlfriend Lisa came
to town, and for a time it seemed like she and Robin were friends. However,
Lisa was really after Patrick. When Robin went to Africa for a
humanitarian mission, Lisa worked on Patrick's insecurities, and they had a
one-night stand. That broke up their marriage, but it was only the
beginning. Patrick was committed to Robin and wanted their family, not Lisa.
Lisa spiraled out of control and went completely nuts in her obsession with
Patrick. She kidnapped Robin and her daughter, and she terrorized Robin many
times. Lisa was in an out of mental institutions. She seemed to keep getting
out and doing more things to Robin. Eventually, Lisa was killed, and we
still don't know who did it. Robin and Patrick were both suspects.
2012, Robin was seemingly killed in a freak accident in the hospital lab. She had
been working tirelessly to find a medicine that would help Jason with his
brain problems. She managed to get the drug and get it to Patrick
before the lab blew up. Only the audience knows that Robin is alive
and well, and being held hostage somewhere. We don't know yet by whom or
