* 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.

At the hospital, Obrecht stops Nina as she rolls by for a mandatory chat about Madeline, or Magda as Obrecht knows her. Nina has read up on Obrecht online, listing her crimes from the previous spring. Obrecht admits she wasn’t “mutter of the year,” but thinks Madeline’s crimes were far worse. She calls Nina out on not keeping up with her PT schedule, and wonders why if she wants to walk. Franco walks up and takes the blame for Nina. He kisses Obrecht and tells her Nina is one of his most devoted patients. Obrecht is overjoyed they are working together and offers to take Nina to a session. Franco insists on doing it and alone, Nina thanks Franco. Then, their elevator gets stuck. Meanwhile, Lucas, Brad and Felix all make plans to “hang out,” all three thinking about a threesome. They can’t go to Lucas’ place because of Carly, and Felix’s place is out because Sabrina is coming back tomorrow. Brad’s place is out because of Britt, so Lucas suggests getting a room at the Metro Court. Felix is wary of Carly finding out. Brad insists they have to do this now or they’ll chicken out. He tells them to come over in 30 minutes and he’ll take care of Britt.
Back at the hospital, Felix is delayed by the elevators and runs into Milo. Meanwhile, Obrecht taunts Liz about her date but Liz thinks what was interrupted with Nik will keep.
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.
