Rabbi Tav Pachowski
Rabbi Pachowski was born on the outskirts of Krakow on April 11th 1925.
Rabbi Tav is a holocaust survivor; having been saved from certain death at the Nazi Concentration Camp of Sobibor in Poland by the mysterious 'Gershom Schulmann'. One might this Gershom murdered all of the soldiers and guards on the train taking him and over 100 over Jews to Sobibor. Shortly after his disappearance from thr train, the Polish Resistance 'The Silent Unseen' arrived at their location, supposedly sent by said Gershom. Rabbi Pachowski and several of the liberated prisoners joined the Cichociemni until the end of the War, taking part in a number of the unit's more notable engagements. They also helped those who wished to fight no more escape to freedom.
Rabbi Pachowski leads a small organisation of like-minded scholars of all faiths who monitor and surveil a number of suspected nephilim and hosts of the Fallen. They are the Nine Unknown Men and, when faced with the sudden dangerous reality, are afraid to take action rather than watch as they have always done. "I am too old to fight now!" Pachowski tells Charles Vanderbilt one day.
The rabbi teaches Charles and Marguelisa that Gershom is still alive and leads them to his last known location because he feels that his old rescuer can help them with Sander. Little does he realise what doors he has opened and just how difficult it will be to close them.
