Genevieve Scherbatsky is Robin and Katie Scherbatsky's mother.

She had never been seen, until her reveal in the final season, and only a few things have been mentioned relating to her. She and Robin Scherbatsky Sr. got a divorce in Robin's early childhood, and Robin lived with her father after the divorce. Tired of her father treating her like a boy, Robin went to live with Mrs. Scherbastky in her early teens, and became a teen pop star, Robin Sparkles. Robin is shown speaking to her on the phone in a few episodes.

In The Lighthouse, Robin is waiting for her mother to get to her wedding. She later gets a call from her mother telling her that she never boarded the plane because she was scared to get on.

In Vesuvius, she finally arrives at the Farhampton Inn, and she is seen for the first time.
