Borvo Sobrinna was born in [[Vojvodina]], [[Serbia]]. As a teenager, he was recruited by the League of Communist Yugoslavia after his parents were murdered by ethnic [[Albania]]ns, and he was trained by the First Directorate of the [[KGB]] to infiltrate the American financial community. In [[1982]], at the age of 16, he moved to the [[United States of America|USA]] and enrolled at [[Colgate University]], assuming the identity of [[Theodore Cofell]], a dead infant. His records were altered to make it appear that he was born in [[Philadelphia]], [[Pennsylvania]], was the oldest of three children, and his father died when he was a boy. His records also stated that he graduated from [[Fair Lawn Regional High School]] with a 4.0 GPA and a 1572 [[SAT]] score. {{cite|factu}}

As he was being driven from his office, he received a call from [[Kevin Carroll]], who said that something had come up and they needed to meet at the [[Nordhoff garage]]. Ted told his driver this, but when he received no response realized that something was wrong. He tried calling someone on his phone, but Jack then pointed a gun at him and took his phone. Jack explained that his [[Teri Bauer|wife]] and [[Kim Bauer|daughter]] were missing, and he believed that they were being held by [[Ira Gaines]], a colleague of Cofell's. Cofell denied this, claiming he was just an ordinary businessman. Jack took his briefcase and drove him towards a secluded dam. {{cite|1x11s}}

Jack then asked Ted if he knew the names [[Greg Penticoff]], [[Alan York]], or [[David Palmer]]. Cofell protested his innocence, telling Jack about his meeting with Kevin Carroll, who he claimed was a fellow businessman that sold machine tools. Jack then explained to Cofell about a form of torture used in the [[Russia|Russian]] [[gulag]], and threatened to force a wet towel down his throat to gain information. In response, Cofell showed Jack pictures of his family, saying all he wanted was to see them again. {{cite|1x11s}}

Jack then drove Cofell to the Nordhoff Garage to meet Kevin. In the back seat, Cofell covertly drew a hidden [[Microtech H.A.L.O. II knife]] from his arm rest. When they arrived at the garage, Cofell attacked Jack but was disarmed and his wrist broken. Realizing his cover was blown, he started taunting Jack in Serbian, telling him "you will pay". Losing his patience, Jack tried to find out who he was, punching his captive in the heart. Cofell began to choke and Jack tried to force feed him his heart medication, but Cofell spat it out and [[On-screen kills by Jack Bauer#Ted Cofell|died]]. Jack then propped his body up in the back seat in order to deceive Kevin upon his arrival. {{cite|1x11s}}
