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 a pale-skinned woman with gold-brownish eyes and pale white hair with purple hues at the bottom.

Her reporter outfit consists of a black coat with a purple collar.


  • During development of Volume 3, Lisa was considered at one point to be one of the announcers for the Vytal Festival before Kerry Shawcross decided on the announcers being Bartholomew Oobleck and Peter Port instead.[1]
  • 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.
  • 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.
