Robin was the minder of Sephrilian's reality field, chosen to watch over a small house which serves as a mask to Sephrilian's domain. Upon their arrival, she warned Buffy and Willow that magic was not to be used inside, lest the magic containing the field would become unstable. Fitting the non-linear time Robin experienced, Willow knew her by name upon what appears to be their initial meeting.
A remnant of Robin was projected to Buffy and Willow while inside and revealed that someone close to Buffy would betray her. As Buffy and Willow destroyed Sephrilian with some magical assistance, the field could no longer be contained allowing Robin some time to herself until she was reassigned.

Behind the scenes
Robin is named and designed after Robin Balzer, whose husband wrote to Dark Horse comics about his wife's disability in response to a contest posted on MySpace.com. Balzer, diagnosed with schizophrenia, found comfort in the universe of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and used her relation to the characters on the show as a coping device for her condition.
