Codrin, or Cody was a middling level painter who had some contacts with the forgery world and street artists, specifically those that work as Graffiti artists. WHen he was embraced by his sire, his talent level exploded, because he was working on art nearly non-stop to develop himself. With his new vampiric senses, he began a torturous course of skill building. Over time he became much more skilled. However his sire wasn't satisfied. He was a driven being, set upon producing great art talents. His grandsire was tasked with teaching him about the world of the kindred while he worked on his paintings. Eventually, his sire was killed by hunters, but his grandsire presented him at court as passing his "childhood" in vampire society. He was released. With that release, he left the world of his sire behind. Later he learned that his grandsire walked into the sun the next morning, as penance for what his childe had done to Cody. Since then, Cody has hardened his heart and refused to let anyone mean that much to him again. He continues to serve the Camarilla and the Prince who runs the city.
"A toreador with a hardened heart, is a rose who's pedals have lost all color. I feel as though Mr. Neascu should have some sessions with Our Dear Harpy Claude, as it pains me to see such beauty be left as an uncut stone." - Virgil Vendicimo
"This one has seen pain, I've seen faces like this on many veterans throughout American History. But with pain comes wisdom and beauty - and you can see it in his art" - Kelly Cassidy
"Oh dear, another Toreador with a broken heart. They do it to themselves you know, but such is the fate of an artist! It requires passion, yes, and some vulnerability, too. But what a noble sacrifice they make, to open themselves to such anguish so that we may all delight in it." - Zoltan Vancura
