Theodore "Ted" Cofell (Born Borvo Sobrinna) was the CEO of Cofell Enterprises, an investment firm in Burbank at 21500 Riverside Drive. Serbian by birth, he was planted in America by the League of Communist Yugoslavia to infiltrate the U.S. financial community. He was a secret financial supporter of Andre Drazen and his mercenary crew with ties to Kevin Carroll.

Before Day 1

Borvo Sobrinna was born in Serbia. Jack speculated that he was from Belgrade, and had family there. However at some point he moved to the USA and assumed 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 attended Colgate University at age sixteen, earned his M.B.A. from UCLA in 1988 and began working as an investment banker 3 years later.

Five years before Day 1, he founded Cofell Enterprises and eventually accrued a net worth of $35 million. He helped manage the financial affairs of Drazen's operation.

Day 1

At 2:10am, when Bridgit managed to get $1 million extra for retrieving Martin Belkin's ID, a wire transfer was made from a Swiss bank account to Ira Gaines. This was mentioned in an e-mail on Jamey Farrell's computer, and Milo Pressman speculated that it was Ted Cofell's money. When Tony Almeida went through Jamey's e-mails, he found one with Ted Cofell's name as the subject. He gave it to Milo Pressman to decrypt, who found that it mentioned the wire transfer to Gaines. Milo speculated that the $1 million was Cofell's money. ("Day 1: 2:00am-3:00am", "Day 1: 9:00am-10:00am")

Nina Myers then investigated Cofell, and passed his location to Jack Bauer. Meanwhile Andre Drazen made contact with Ira Gaines, and threatened to instruct Cofell to empty the accounts, leaving Gaines with nothing. ("Day 1: 9:00am-10:00am")

Ted was on the phone on his balcony at 21500 Riverside Drive when Jack called and tried to speak to him. His assistant, Nancy, told Jack he was in a meeting, but Jack tried to fool her that he was an old friend. Ted then asked Nancy to call his car to leave early, as he had heard that the traffic was bad. He planned to take a private plane to Denver. Nancy told him about Jack calling, but dismissed it as someone trying to sell him something. Ted got in the lift, which was stopped by a fire alarm, but he assured the other passengers it was probably false and the lift would get going again soon. He reached the basement and got in his limousine, not realizing that Jack had taken the place of his usual driver Mark. ("Day 1: 9:00am-10:00am")

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 wife and 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. ("Day 1: 10:00am-11:00am")

Jack then asked Ted if he knew the names 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 the 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. ("Day 1: 10:00am-11:00am")

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 broken, he started taunting Jack in Serbian, telling him "you will pay". Jack tried to find out who he was, punching him in the heart. ("Day 1: 10:00am-11:00am")

Cofell began to choke and Jack tried to force feed Cofell his heart medication, but Cofell spat it out and died. Jack then propped his body up in the back seat in order to deceive Kevin upon his arrival. ("Day 1: 10:00am-11:00am")
