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.

At the clinic, Maxie and Nathan find Lulu and Dante and they all run off to find Anna before the building explodes. Meanwhile, Robin and Jason prepare to leave their room just as Anna is entering. Neither of their access cards works so Anna dashes off to look for a different card. She runs into Obrecht, who is frantic to find Nathan. The groups converge and Obrecht pulls Nathan into her arms. Anna gives her officers orders to clear the facility while they head to the main entrance. Nathan wants to know what happened to Victor. Anna tells him he’s dead but when he presses for details Obrecht urges them to get a move on. Inside their room, Jason works to unlock the door when it suddenly opens and Helena enters. She has her goons knock out Jason and Robin sarcastically congratulates her on her return from the dead. Helena strokes the embryo chamber and tells Robin that Stavros is dead but will live on, no thanks to Lulu. She tells Robin that Dante and her mother are here to rescue Maxie and Lulu, but the building is about to blow and the doors are sealed. Helena has the override card from Victor with access to all the back tunnels. Robin refuses to leave with Helena as Jason gets a gun, shoots Helena’s goons, then takes Robin and runs off. Helena calmly grabs the embryo and walks out. Meanwhile, the others realize the front door is locked so they all raise their guns and shoot the lock at the same time. It works and they escape and take cover just as the building explodes.
At Crichton-Clark, Maxie and Nathan start making out over Peter’s dead body. He realizes it isn’t the best time or place and instead gives Maxie a sexy lesson in proper gun handling before she grabs the Aztec knife and they leave. Meanwhile, Dante bursts into Lulu’s room, gun drawn. Stavros puts a scalpel to Lulu’s neck and threatens to slit her throat, Cassadine style. Dante relents and kicks over his gun but then Lulu suddenly elbows Stavros in the gut so Dante can pounce. Lulu and the female doctor struggle, and Lulu is able to open the door with her badge long enough for police backup to see Dante. There’s lots of shooting but they can’t get in the room and Stavros pulls a gun on Dante. Lulu throws herself in front of the gun, insisting Stavros kill her first. In Victor’s office, Obrecht interrupts his arrest by pulling a gun on Anna. Anna thinks this is about Faison and suggests Obrecht think about her son instead. Obrecht says she is – and suddenly shoots Victor. Anna can’t believe it but Obrecht couldn’t risk Victor escaping jail now that he knows the truth. The police backup come in and tell Anna that Dante is sealed in a room with Lulu and Stavros. Anna runs off with them while Obrecht apologizes to Victor. It’s kill or be killed, but she regrets he had to die. Victor isn’t dead and croaks out he’d hoped their kiss-kill relationship would end in a kiss – or a kill by his hand. She tells him they are the only two who know Nathan is not really his son, and the truth is far, far worse. Meanwhile, Jason punches out the clinic director and snatches his medical file. He takes the access badge off of the doctor and sneaks out of the room. He hides as Maxie and Nathan walk by, then enters a room to find Robin chained to a wall. She’s ecstatic and realizes he can’t talk and has a fever. He suddenly shoots off her handcuff and she admonishes him for not warning her, then gives him a big hug. Meanwhile, Maxie and Nathan open a door and find the doctor and director that Jason took out. Nathan wakes up the director who tells him the person who knocked them out was a priority patient of Mr. Cassadine. Outside the room with Stavros, Lulu and Dante, Anna has the men look for another way in. Inside, Stavros reminds Lulu that he can raise their child with or without her. Dante and Stavros struggle over the gun. It goes off, killing Stavros. Anna finally enters with backup and tells them Victor is dead just like Stavros. Back in his office, Stavros wants to know who Nathan’s father is. Obrecht moves to put a pillow over Victor’s face. He pushes a button in his vest and suddenly loud sirens and lights go off across the whole clinic. He tells Obrecht it is a contingency to protect against biological warfare, and in a few minutes all that will be left of the clinic will be a crater. He won’t disclose how much time she has and she runs for it. As the sirens go off Anna leads another sweep of the clinic and is about to open the door holding Robin and Jason. Meanwhile, the clinic director tells Nathan and Maxie they have to leave since someone triggered the disrupt sequence.
