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.

In their cells, Madeline asks Liesl not to tell Nathan he is her son but Liesl thinks it could be catastrophic if he sleeps with Britt. Madeline wonders what the odds are of that happening. Liesl is sure Madeline will be in jail the rest of her life for killing her daughter but Madeline suggests she has her own ticket to freedom. Liesl doubts it. A cop comes to bring Liesl up to see Dante. She runs into Nathan and begs to talk. He refuses to listen and she is led off. Alone, Nathan tells Madeline that he drank his sorrows away with the daughter of her cellmate. Madeline asks if he slept with her but he won’t tell. She tells him he can’t sleep with her because she’s his sister. Her last name is not West, it’s Westbourne and she isn’t his mother, Liesl is. Upstairs, Michael storms into PCPD and rages at Anna for not finding AJ’s shooter. She tells him they’re focusing on the burglar who threatened AJ. They don’t have an ID yet, but they traced his dropped gun to an illegal dealer they are closing in on now. Michael apologizes for yelling. He just got the call to pick up AJ’s death certificate. She apologizes for his loss and he leaves. Liesl is brought up and accuses Anna again of killing Faison. Dante and Lulu arrive and Liesl comments that her freedom is here. Dante tells Anna it could be nothing and she waits outside. Inside, they ask Liesl about the embryo. She promises it is safe and will return it once they give her full immunity from all prosecution, and the same for Britt. Outside, Anna is told the gun dealer is on his way and she’s sure it’s only a matter of time before the burglar is identified.
In the cells, Madeline has a fit while Obrecht threatens to tell James everything. The blond thinks that will only lead to resentment but the doctor thinks that Britt can comfort her bother. "Get her a puppy," suggests Madeline. Obrecht worries that the siblings might hook up if they don't warn them. Her sister thinks that's a ridiculous idea. The doctor stars exercising and bragging about how she will be out soon. "By the time I'm through, I won't be the villain, I'll be the hero," she claims. A cop comes down and hands her a phone. She calls Dante and offers to make her statement but only to him. She'll be waiting. When he arrives, she tells him that she knows about his 'other child'.
