First Appearance


Frieda Goren is a teenage resident of Dakota City, where she attends Ernest Hemingway High School as a student. She is the best friend and potential love interest of Virgil Hawkins, a.k.a. Static.

Frieda learned of Virgil’s secret after Hotstreak (formally Biz Money B) tries to take her as a prize for himself. Static shows up to protect her, but it quickly defeated. After Hotstreak leaves, Static removes his mask, revealing himself to her. Frieda takes him to her house to tend to his wounds as he tells her everything about what led to the fateful night at the Big Bang. After Virgil is treated, he challenges Hotstreak to a rematch and defeats him. From then on, Freida's friendship with Virgil grows as she becomes his only confidant with his identity. But Freida was keeping a secret of her own. When Virgil tries to visit her to discuss his encounter with Holocaust, he discovers that she and Larry Wade, a close friend of Virgil's, were dating. Virgil gets jealous and blasts Larry with some of his powers by accident. Larry later explained to him that Frieda hid her secret because she didn't want to lose him as a friend. Virgil forgives them both and things return to normal.

Though her life was never again normal due to her connection to Static, Frieda's suffered a great loss when Larry is killed by his drug suppliers. At Larry’s funeral, she admits that she worries about Virgil when he's Static. Losing Larry, combined with her need to always be perfect, causes Frieda to develop an eating disorder and becomes anorexic. With support from her friends and family, she soon recovers.
