Gisa Cohen


      A long-wandering Dawn, Gisa Cohen has been a low-key member of the Freehold since it was founded. She went back to Israel for the High Holidays, and spent a little longer there than she expected to, returning only on the eve of Passover 5777. Rumor has it that she's been back from Arcadia for over half a century, maybe even closer to a century -- but if that's the case, then she hasn't aged a day that whole time.

      Since returning to Tamarack Falls, she's bought a small shop space and transformed it into a Jewish bookstore and a hangout for the Freehold's Lost. The golem has also formed a motley with like-minded individuals, joined the Custodians, and is patiently waiting to finish her apprenticeship as a Wayperson.

      As of Jan 28, 2018, the bookstore's operations have been transferred to Iris, and Gisa has reportedly returned to Israel in company of Alonso.


RP Hooks

  • Books & Judaica - Gisa owns Tamarack Falls Jewish Books, with a private reading room for Freehold-pledged individuals. The Space Communists run the bookstore as a whole, but Gisa owns it.
  • Judaism - Goylomim protect the Jewish people. This golem studies Torah, too.
  • Pledgesmith ••• - Want your pledge looked over by someone who considers a page of Talmud her light daily reading? Gisa can look for loopholes and ambiguous wording.
  • Custodian - Gisa is one of these.
  • Well-Traveled - With nearly ninety years of walking the world post-Durance, Gisa may well have crossed paths with just about anyone.
  • Fame: It's unusual for there to be an overtly Religious Changeling, but...

Standing on the parted shores of history
we still believe what we were taught
before ever we stood at Sinai's foot;
that wherever we go, it is eternally Egypt,
that there is a better place, a promised land;
that the winding way to that promise
passes through the wilderness.
That there is no way to get from here to there
except by joining hands, marching

Gad Elbaz & Nissim - Hashem Melech
Shtar - So Decide (Pesach Song)

Lorde - Yellow Flicker Beat

I’m a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm
And the scars that mark my body, they’re silver and gold
My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones
It keeps my veins hot, the fires find a home in me
I move through town, I’m quiet like a fire

Florence + The Machine - Only If For A Night

And the only solution was to stand and fight
And my body was bruised and I was set alight
But you came over me like some holy rite
And although I was burning, you're the only light

Matisyahu - One Day

Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds
I know some day it´ll all turn around
