Mary McDonnell

The former Colonial Secretary of Education was forced to assume the presidency of the 12 Colonies on the day of the Cylon attack. Though she has risen to the challenge of leading the fleet with class, confidence, intelligence and stoicism, she also battled breast cancer before it was sent into remission by a stem-cell treatment from Hera, the human-Cylon infant. Throughout her journey, Roslin has experienced visions that inspire her to believe she is destined to lead humanity to a new home on Earth. With the recent relapse of her cancer, however, she must confront the possibility that she will not live long enough to see her quest fulfilled.
