Cole was born on 5th August, 1967, he is a government paranormal researcher, working with Nathan Dawkins to treat as well as to study Jodie as a little girl. Cole acts as an authority figure in Jodie's life, but is more akin to a protective brother. He has shown to deeply care for Jodie, and is willing to do anything to help her.
- He gives Jodie the nickname "Princess".
- Kadeem Hardison let it slip at the Beyond: Two Souls Comi-con 2012 panel that Cole Freeman raises Jodie. It's not currently known if Cole Freeman is Jodie's surrogate father in every version of the game playthrough.
- If Cole dies in the chapter Black Sun, Jodie will lay a picture of a little princess wearing a gold crown on his grave. His tombstone will have 5th August, 1967-14th November, 2014 engraved on it.
- Alternatively, if Cole lives, he will instead receive the picture in the mail.
