Giselle is best known for her role as [[Revered Mother]] of the chantry in [[Jader]]. In the years following the [[Fifth Blight]], Jader saw an influx of [[Ferelden|Fereldan]] refugees, which in turn led to an outbreak of disease and then famine in the poorer quarters. As the Revered Mother of a prosperous Chantry, Giselle wrote to the Chantry in [[Val Royeaux]] asking for assistance. When help was not immediately forthcoming, she encouraged the clerics to go on a hunger strike, saying that their faith would sustain them like it had [[Andraste]]. She then took their chantry's entire food stores to the poor quarters of Jader to feed the starving peasants. This displeased the Chantry in Val Royeaux, who saw this move as a bullying tactic, but led to them sending official aid to Jader. Food arrived quickly, along with instructions on how to distribute it: first to the clerics of the Jader chantry, then to the Orlesian peasants, then to the Fereldan refugees and finally to the elves of the [[alienage]]. Mother Giselle famously refused the order, arguing that those furthest from the [[Maker]] were in greatest need of the Chantry's care, and that their souls couldn't be filled until their bellies were. With the support of Lady Seryl of Jader, who was directing relief efforts of her own, Mother Giselle distributed food to the poor of the city without care for race or nationality.

Her actions in Jader saved thousands of lives and made her beloved to the poor in both Orlais and Ferelden. It also destroyed any chance of advancement within Chantry hierarchy, who saw her as too rebellious. In the following years, Divine [[Justinia V|Justinia]] often deployed Giselle to troubled areas to help the poor and the sick, who hailed her arrival as a blessing. To the rich she remained a portent of unwelcome charity.<ref>{{Cite wot2|255-256}}</ref>
