^Faust is not, however, one of the heroes. @Aeon has confirmed that.
So in the first quest in the saga there were a number of Undertale references. In this release, there was a black and white heart, split down the middle, with the kanji associated with despair on it. Is this perhaps also a reference to another game? Half black, half white, and despair...
well, that last clue we got about the six heroes is that we already know one of them, but haven't guessed them yet. interestingly enough, the hero themselves is one of the few people we hadn't guessed up until then, or even AFTER we were told, so your idea is actually quite possible.
It's actually possible that we have guessed them, since that post. Based on when the edit was made to that post, my guess may have been somewhere near the mark. As to who that was... I'm also more interested in the speculation.
Also, I was fairly sure the Hero was recognized as a potential candidate before that clue was given. I cannot recall exactly whether it was confirmed that they were not.
Lysander was not raised as a potential candidate.
Looking through the dictionary, there could be a skill called 'Seisachtheia'. Just saying.
Another note on this dictionary is that Faust is actually not included as an entry. In terms of which Lysander Aeon is referencing (and I suspect it is a figure of history or mythology, based on previous characters), it could be either; Faust was an actual figure of history in the fifteenth and sixteenth century, so historically that is a similar timeframe to A Midsummer Night's Dream. But a dictionary of phrase and fable could contain both Faust and Lysander as well.
Lysander's motive is still unclear. One particular thing about the General's bio jumped out at me:
"but the king purposely thwarted all his designs, and refused all the favours which he asked."
The Hero of DF has the clear capacity of obtaining favours from the King. And even in the event of the King's demise, the Hero is also in the Queen's good books.
The Hero knowing Lysander's plan does not bother him; in fact, it appears to please him. And the Hero saves people from dying, while Lysander is intentionally killing people in large numbers.
Lysander is also a strategic thinker, as well as a critical one, lending more credence to the General being the source of the name. He also seems... dispassionate, which is an odd choice for a passionate lover.

i don't know if it was a good or bad quest i would give it i don't know 5? 6? out of 10?
I feel as though the expressive intention was to create uncertainty, so in that regard perhaps it exceeds a mid-range score... After all, stories are primarily about emotions.
And I forgot to mention this earlier, but it was a fun quest! I enjoyed it.
