Useful information on Dr. Liesl Obrecht
* In her youth, lost her medical license for conducting experiments on humans.
Dr. Liesl Obrecht first appeared at a Swiss hospital where Luke Spencer was searching for Anna Devane, who had gone there in search for her presumed-dead daughter, Robin Scorpio-Drake. Obrecht threw them off the scent and conspired with a man who looked exactly like presumed-dead Duke Lavery.
Later, it was revealed that the man was Cesar Faison in disguise, and that he had the real Duke hostage at the same clinic. Obrecht called Faison for help just before Robin knocked her out, stole her phone, and called home. Obrecht overcame Robin and Patrick Drake didn't believe that Robin was actually on the phone.
When Obrecht later learned that Faison had been captured and the real Duke was rescued, she stabbed Robert Scorpio with a drug and took Robin to Jerry Jacks.
Obrecht was later revealed to be the mother of Dr. Britt Westbourne. She convinced Britt to announce she was pregnant with Patrick's child at the 2013 Nurses' Ball.
She tried to poison Anna Devane by putting propofol into her champagne glass during Felicia Scorpio-Jones and Mac Scorpio's engagement party. Duke was drugged instead. She left Port Charles for Corith, Pa., where she ran into Holly and Luke. It was revealed she was the one who created the polonium poisoning cure sought by Luke, Jerry, and Sean Donely.

Obrecht leads the press conference at General Hospital. The reporters pepper Patrick with detailed questions about his statements intending harm to the patient. He looks at Sam, who is staring at Silas. Nina looks happy off in the corner. Obrecht demands the source but the reporter won’t divulge. Obrecht declares the press conference over and threatens to call security. Patrick pulls Sam aside and she promises she didn’t say anything. Patrick asks Silas if he told the reporters and Sam wants an explanation. Did he tell his wife? Nina promises Silas didn’t tell her anything and Silas accuses Sam of believing Patrick over him. Sam thinks what Silas did is unforgiveable. He swears on his life he didn’t tell a reporter anything and takes Nina home. Patrick apologizes to Sam but she’s the one who is sorry. She thought she could trust Silas. Obrecht returns and tells them the lawyers have only one course of action. She fires Patrick.
At the hospital, Patrick prepares for the press conference. Sam thinks she convinced Silas that Patrick did everything he could to save Rafe, and Patrick thanks her for believing in him. Meanwhile, Anna accuses Obrecht of setting Patrick up for a fall, and that she should let both sides calm down before adding fuel to the fire. Obrecht informs Anna that Rafe had been doing coke and heroin and suggests she stop the flow of illegal drugs into the city and leave the hospital to her. Meanwhile, Nina tells Rosalie that she heard Sam tell Silas in confidence that Patrick thought about killing Rafe, and she wants that tidbit to slip out during the press conference. Silas arrives and brushes Nina off to see Sam, so Nina directs him over to where she is chatting with Patrick. He fumes watching them and Nina offers to take him home to take care of him. Instead, he just walks off as Nina continues to beg after him. The reporters arrive and Nina pretends to drop her bag and after getting some help, offers some help of her own. When the press conference begins Obrecht goes over the details of Rafe’s critical car accident. One of the reporters calls Drake’s surgery a conflict of interest, but Obrecht is sure if they had not operated, Rafe would have died. The reporter needles about the possibility Drake killed Rafe. Patrick assures him he did everything to save Rafe’s life. The reporter asks him why he admitted he wanted the boy dead and the crowd gasps and flashes go off. Patrick looks right at Sam.
