Running for the Council[edit | edit source]

Robyn and her Happy Huntresses blocking the path

Robyn stands near a barricade, waiting for the vehicle that Ruby, Penny Polendina, Clover Ebi and Qrow are riding in, in order to find out why large sources of Dust are being transported to Amity Colosseum instead of being used to fix Mantle's outer wall. Robyn presumably orders two of her Huntresses to approach the group from behind and then greets Clover. Before she can get an answer for why the supplies are being taken elsewhere, Penny comes out from the vehicle and asks Robyn to call off her Huntresses. Robyn relents, but after the protagonists pass, she vows to find discover why all the Dust is being transported to Amity, no matter what it takes.

Robyn during her speech

Later, on the night of the election, Robyn and her Happy Huntresses hold a rally in Mantle, confident in her victory over her opponent, Jacques Schnee. Although her victory becomes increasingly unsure as the night goes on, she gives a short victory speech before the results are in. Suddenly, all the lights go out and a hooded figure begins killing many of her supporters and injures Fiona Thyme. Robyn is unable to defend against the attacker due to her lack of vision. When the power comes back, she sees Penny standing over her and a number of dead bodies at the rally as Schnee's victory is displayed across the screen. She deduces that Ironwood sent his robot to kill her and her supporters, and makes an enemy out of him and all of Atlas.

Carving a New Path[edit | edit source]

Robyn shockly finds Yang and Blake during her Dust Robbery

After the election night incident, Robyn and her Happy Huntresses began stealing some supply shipment trucks during a curfew and a ban on public gatherings. When attempting one heist, however, Robyn discovers Yang Xiao Long and Blake Belladonna and quickly orders her Happy Huntresses to make their separate escape and regroup at their hideout.

Robyn flees as Yang and Blake give chase, but they are adamant about talking and inform her about Ironwood's secret project. Skeptical at first, Robyn tells one of the two to hold her hand and reminds them that they do not have much time before the Ace-Ops arrives. When Blake takes Robyn's hand, Robyn uses her Semblance and asks the cat Faunus about Ironwood's motives in the tundra. Despite Blake telling the truth, Robyn questions why Ironwood keeps it a secret. Blake says that he cannot trust anyone and that if certain people in Atlas find out, they will try to destroy Amity.

Before parting ways with Yang and Blake, Robyn swears that she will never stop until she finds out the truth.

After Jacques' electoral victory, his first act is to gather the council to put Ironwood's standing in question, to which Robyn is invited and attends. The council gathers at Jacques' manor, and Robyn sits with them at the table. Jacques is cordial with her, knowing the event's purpose is targeting Ironwood. The council questions Ironwood's closed border policy, saying it hurts relations with the other Kingdoms, and Robyn is quick to say it is hurting everyone. When the conversation shifts to the Amity Project, Robyn is shocked that even the council does not know about it.

Robyn angrily glaring at Jacques for his selfishness and apathy to the suffering of others.

Later, once the council had finished questioning Ironwood, Robyn decided to challenge if he was hiding something more from them, with the plan of using her Semblance to prove it. Before he could accept, Weiss Schnee burst into the room, telling the council they had the wrong man in trial. Weiss then shows the group a clip of Jacques and Arthur Watts planning on rigging the election to Jacques favor and showing Jacques true amoral character,greatly shocking Robyn at the revelation.

While Ironwood and the Councilmen questioned Jacques, calling for his arrest. Robyn enraged by his actions,angrily accused Jacques of being responsible for the massacred victims of her victory party and having their blood in his hands, as per his and Arthur Watts agreement and was further enraged at the fact that he "only" wanted to win the elections and his apparent attempts to deflect responsibility. They soon realized Watts was beginning to block them out of Atlas' systems. Ironwood's Group and Ruby's Group began to plan how to prevent Salem from obtaining knowledge of the Amity Project, prompting Robyn to once again ask what it's for. There, Ironwood decided to tell the remaining Councilmen, as well as Robyn, about the truth behind his secrecy and about Salem, greatly shocking the Huntress.

The Battle of Mantle[edit | edit source]

The truth is out.

As the Battle of Mantle wages, Ironwood and Robyn Hill send out a broadcast to all of Mantle and Atlas, in which Ironwood reveals the existence of Salem and links the recent murders in Mantle to her minions Tyrian Callows and Arthur Watts, while Robyn uses her Semblance on him to prove it to all be true. The two encourage everyone to stand together due to Salem's goal being to divide them. While the broadcast zooms in and only shows Ironwood from the chest up, he reveals his plans involving the Amity Communications Tower, claims it is ready for launch and tells the civilians they will be evacuated to Atlas. Robyn voices her support for Ironwood's plan as the citizens all cheer.

Watts tells Tyrian to cause more chaos in Mantle to keep their full attention away from Watts and the Amity Tower. Tyrian overhears a broadcast from Robyn saying she will personally escort Sector 17's civilians, which gives him an idea. Robyn leaves her Happy Huntresses to search for any missed civilians and is shortly after cut off by Tyrian. Tyrian attempts to attack Robyn but is ambushed by Qrow Branwen and Clover Ebi, and Robyn reveals it to be a trap that she and Ironwood devised. The trio fights Tyrian, eventually defeating and arresting him. They call for a Manta airship to transport their prisoner.

Fallout With Atlas[edit | edit source]

Robyn accuses Clover of betrayal.

Aboard the Manta serving as prisoner transport, Robyn and Clover barely have time to discuss the message that was just sent out by Ruby about Ironwood's plan to declare martial law and of Salem's incoming arrival before a wanted notice is sent out to people's Scrolls. Due to Qrow being listed in the notice along with RWBY, JNPR and Oscar, Clover prepares to arrest Qrow, calmly explaining the situation, only for Robyn to start accusing him of following James' apparent tyranny. Clover attempts to de-escalate the situation, but Robyn attacks him leading to a three way battle between Clover, Robyn, and Qrow. During the fight, Tyrian is broken free from his seat and crashes the Manta.

At the Manta crash site in the Solitas tundra just outside Mantle, Qrow finds Robyn unconscious in need of medical aid. Clover uses the opportunity to tell him to surrender, begging him to not spark another fight. Qrow refuses and the two reluctantly continue their fight, eventually leading to the former's death. Robyn wakes up in confusion and anger as authorities arrive, arresting both her and Qrow. She comforts Qrow in the prisoner transport in light of Clover's death.

Imprisoned[edit | edit source]

Robyn and Jacques argue.

Now imprisoned in an Atlesian military facility and imprisoned in adjacent cells; Robyn rants to Jacques about how his allegiances with Arthur Watts allowed Atlas to tear itself and imprison her and Qrow. She defends Jacques' accusations of Qrow being a murderer, and listens in when Qrow suggests they kill the people who put them in a cell.

Later, Robyn and Qrow attempt to lighten the mood by telling stories to one another. The conversation soon turns into a solemn talk with Qrow Branwen about Clover Ebi’s death and how their Semblances have affected their ability to have relationships with people, Qrow's causing him to push people away and Robyn's naturally repelling others in fear she'd use her Semblance to her social advantage. They are interrupted by Harriet Bree and Marrow, the former noticing Qrow with Clover's pin and accusing him of being a murderer. Angered, Robyn tempts Harriet to open her cell so she can prove that he is innocent and goad Harriet into a fight, but Marrow stops Harriet before she does so. Robyn accuses Harriet of just looking for someone to be angry at as the Ace-Op walks away, furious.
