Margaret "Maggie" Faris was a crewmember aboard the colonization spacecraft USCSS Covenant. She was the wife of Tennessee. She was serving on the Covenant during its disastrous voyage to Origae-6, during which it suffered several catastrophes that resulted in the loss of most of the ship's crew and its hijacking by David.
Faris was part of the expedition team that set down on Planet 4, piloting the Covenant's dropship, Lander One. While trying to kill a Neomorph she inadvertently caused an explosion, destroying the dropship with her still inside. She initially survived the explosion, stumbling out of what remained of the dropship while engulfed in flames, perishing moments later.
When a Neomorph hatched from Ledward and attacked Karine Oram, Faris armed herself with a Remington 870 shotgun in an attempt to kill the creature. As she took aim, she slipped on Ledward's blood, causing her to misfire the gun into a pipe in the ceiling and drop it on the ground, as well as inadvertently get the Neomorph's attention. Pursued by the Neomorph, she made her way back to the armoury and armed herself with another Remington 870, which she repeatedly fired at the Neomorph which continuously dodged her gunfire until she accidentally shot a stack of explosive barrels, causing a massive explosion that destroyed the dropship and killed her.
