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.
