Maggie Robbins is a journalist and is the only other member of the Attila mission to not be NASA trained, the other being the geologist Ludger Brink.
However her role expands greatly once they reach the surface of the alien world. Her affinity for languages allows her to build up a working knowledge of first the written and then the spoken language used by the beings who once inhabited the planet.
This becomes particularly useful once the team discovers the entity known as The Creator, who developed two methods for the occupants of the planet to cheat death, first by the life crystals, and then by The Eye which allows those who enter it to shed their physical bodies. Each...have their drawbacks.
Maggie is also capable of perishing twice in the course of the game. The first time is when she tries to open the Eye, which suddenly snaps open and flings her down to the ground below. The second time comes if you break your promise not to revive her with a crystal, whereupon she kills herself by leaping off a cliff, preferring to die rather than end up like the crystal obsessed Brink.
She and Lowe develop a close connection with each other, presumably due to the fact that they end up united against the increasingly dangerous Brink.
Maggie Robbins is voiced by Mari Weiss.
