Olivia felt she no longer deserved to be Robin's mother for the way she left her. Olivia was soon captured by Spandine, as well as the other scholars. When Olivia heard Professor Clover call out to Robin, she couldn't help but look to her daughter who no longer recognized her. However, Robin called out to her and ask if she was her mother. To avoid implicating her in front of the CP-9 officers, Olivia had to deny her own child, but Robin refused to believe it. She cried out how she had been waiting for her, she studied to become an archeologist like her, then she shocked everyone when she declared she taught herself to read the poneglyphs.
