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}}

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.

After attempting to fool Cofell's assistant, [[Tracy]], into thinking that he was an old friend of Cofell's, Jack kidnapped him and attempted to interrogate him, using information he gathered from [[Nina Myers]].

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]].

Cofell denied this, claiming he was just an ordinary businessman. Jack took his briefcase and drove him towards a secluded dam. {{cite|1x11s}}
   
After arriving there, Jack moved to the back seat of the bullet-proof limosine. At this moment, Cofell pulled a [[Microtech H.A.L.O.

For the original, see Theodore Cofell.

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 Edit

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 Albanians, 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 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. (Findings at CTU)

Cofell graduated with a BSc in Economics from Colgate in 1986, and went on to earn his M.B.A. from UCLA in 1988. He became Investments and Acquisitions Officer at Roccelli and Stevens Banking Associates in 1989, before becoming Chief Investment Manager at Kurtis, Siebert and Bates Financial in 1990, and vice president of that firm in 1991. 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. (Findings at CTU, "Day 1: 10:00am-11:00am")

Day 1 Edit

At 2:10am, after Bridgit had 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, with Cofell's name as the subject. When Tony Almeida went through Jamey's hard drive, he found the e-mail, and gave it to Milo Pressman to decrypt. Milo found that it mentioned the wire transfer to Gaines, and speculated that the $1 million was Cofell's money. ("2:00am-3:00am", "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. ("9:00am-10:00am")
