Service Record Hailing from a closed and extremely religious community in Israel, not much is known about Cohen's childhood. It is apparent there was some kind of breakaway, for she attended university as a young adult. Avigail had developed a particular love for hydroponics and, at the suggestion of one of her most respected teachers, decided to go into the military rather than continue on with her plan to eventually obtain a doctorate. She was told the pay was very good for scientists and she would have opportunities to work on potentially secret projects that a PhD would not necessarily help her gain access to. Ever inquisitive, the young woman leapt on the chance and enrolled in Officer Candidate School. Her bright mind shone, but her lack of intensive social activity throughout her life finally caught up to her. The former might have had her advancing quickly yet again, but the latter held her back. She had to learn how to work with others without simply giving into their wishes, especially men, and was taught that it was alright to sometimes question authority in public, rather than waiting for a private opportunity that might never arrive or might be too late.

After Officer Candidate School, she was assigned as one of several assistants to the man in charge of Hypothetical Hydroponic Studies. This included applying all she had learned at Technion to plant life discovered on other planets as well as a heavy emphasis on breeding and morphing current plants to be able to survive (and perhaps thrive) in alien conditions for potential military assignments. When her supervisor realized what a bright and likeable woman he had in his retenue, he took it upon himself to teach her a bit more about the practicalities of leadership. It was a slow change over the course of a couple of years, but Avigail blossomed into a competent leader whom the other assistants went to as a go-between for any issues they felt the director should know. She was not particularly dynamic, but she was warm, steady, and nonjudgmental, always encouraging innovation in the others. Eventually, the director used his connections and her history of success in mutating plants to get her a position on the EAV Genesis as a Hydroponics Technician.
