Thank you, Cyril. In other news, this Saturday's Faunus Civil Rights protest turned dark when members of the White Fang disrupted the ceremony.
—Lisa Lavender

Lisa Lavender is a news reporter for the Vale News Network, first seen in the episode "Ruby Rose" of RWBY Volume 1.


Lisa is seen on a screen aboard the airship bringing new students to Beacon Academy. She reports on the Faunus Civil Rights Protest and how it was disrupted by the White Fang. However, her report was cut short when Glynda Goodwitch took control of the screen to welcome the new students. In "Beginning of the End", Lisa is seen reporting on Yang's attack on Mercury during the Vytal Festival Tournament. Lisa is seen once again in "Of Runaways and Stowaways", where she reports that all attempts by authorities to capture Adam Taurus have been met with fierce resistance.

Lisa is heard but not seen in "Cat Burglar", the second episode of RWBY Chibi, reporting on a spate of robberies by a mysterious cat burglar.

In RWBY: The Grimm Campaign, Mina disguises herself as Lisa to enter Pastel's Estate in Kuchinashi and find a Scroll with sensitive information. Her cover is blown by Asher Mora, however.


  • Her last name, "Lavender", is the name of a light tone of purple, which is also the color of her hair.
  • She was shown only as a 2D image in Volume 1–3 but gained a full 3D model in Volume 4.
  • She shares her last name with Mina Lavender, a character appearing in RWBY: The Grimm Campaign. Coincidentally, Mina was able to impersonate Lisa, further suggesting a connection between the two.
