Dean Lisette is a human druid teacher at the Witherbloom College of Strixhaven University on Arcavios.


Dean Lisette of Witherbloom is a powerful nature-witch. She's a world-class healer and herbalist; it's even said she once cured the Lorehold Founder Dragon of a secret illness. Lisette's classes are more about demonstrating and hands-on experience than words or lectures. When Lisette speaks, she speaks softly, in strange and colorful metaphors.

Lisette believes in preserving nature and spreading life. She instills in her students a respect for all living things and a desire to help Arcavios flourish. While Valentin's treatment of living creatures disgusts her, she also knows she can use the results of his cruelty to help future lives.[1]


Dean Lisette was aware of Professor Onyx's true nature as a planeswalker, and endeavored to remove her from Strixhaven.[2]
