Several deep cuts and poorly healed wounds run up his arms.
The biggest change is his left leg. Having been mangled by those torturing him it was removed and replaced with a biosynthetic leg, just above the knee. Due to an illness as a child it fails to work at times. He keeps a cane nearby for the times it fails him, which seems to be often.

|Personal History||He was born on one of the hottest days of the year, to two loving parents. For the first two years of his life his parents stayed on Earth in their home near Detroit, on the North American continent. Shortly after his second birthday his parents decided to resume their careers of Archaeologists. When they would leave Earth, usually for several months at a time, Cody was left with different relatives around the planet. At the young age of 4 tragedy struck him for the first time. His parents took off, in their personal ship the Morning Star, a Raven class vessel, heading towards their newest dig site. They never reached their destination, just simply vanishing. Every search for them proved futile, and after awhile Starfleet gave up, counting them as lost. It was at this time that his father's only brother, a retired Starfleet medical officer, took him in and raised on the shores of Lake Superior. It was there he learned to fish, sail, and it gave him a love of the land as a gardener. He barely remembered his parents, but his family kept telling him stories of their work. His uncle would tell him stories of his own time in starfleet. Cody was aware of his new guardians role as a doctor, and at the young age of ten he thought he decided he wanted to follow in his Uncle's footsteps. Through out his youth, Cody was taken on trip with his Uncle, where the older man instileed the need for every person to know survival training. The ability to live off of hte land.
His uncle had kept a small practice near his home by the lake. When Cody was fourteen he informed his uncle of his wish to join Starfleet as a doctor. So his uncle started him on the path and began making the boy spend his free time pouring over every bit of medical information he could find. and had him reading the texts he would need for the medical classes at the academy. It was when he turned seventeen that his uncle pushed him to try for the Academy entrance exam. He did and passed. As Cody was getting ready to enter the Academy tragedy struck once again. His Uncle passed away, after years of battling an unknown and incurable mental disease that had struck him when Cody was a young boy, leaving Cody orphaned once more.
He entered the Academy, taking classes aimed for medical classes, namely psychiatry, due to the mental illness that had claimed his Uncle. He studied hard and worked his way through the Academy, making few friends as he went along. When he graduated out of the academy he entered into Starfleet Medical Academy. After four hard years he graduated as a doctor, He returned for another two years taking courses in brain surgery and Xenopsychiatry. He left the Academy to make his mark on the galaxy.
He spent a couple of years on the Hathaway for his internship and residency. He pushed himself, trying to learn as much as he could and hone his skills to become a good doctor. Two years passed and he finished his residency. It was then he was promoted to Lieutenant Junior grade and made a medical officer. He stayed on the Hathaway for another few months before being transferred to the USS Hathor, a smaller ship. He was also made the acting chief medical officer, due to the size of the tiny ship and lack of a full medical crew.
It was on the USS Hathor that he met Loreni Jelora. He became infatuated by her the moment he met her, slowly forming a friendship with the young Cardassian Science Chief. As the year progressed the ship was boarded by her sister, a former Obsidian Order agent that had turned to piracy. She seen the way Cody acting around her sister and took him hostage. She held him for over a week torturing him continuously. After being rescued by Loreni , he was taken out of active duty to undergo Psychological examinations. After six months he was allowed to reinstate his commission. His prior post was filled by this point so he put in for a new ship and was accepted to the USS Cousteau
On the Cousteau he was reunited with Loreni and together the two of them were instrumental in finding a cure for a plague that ravaged a good portion of Cardassia Prime, but they also discovered his parent’s whereabouts. Loreni became pregnant near the end of their first year on the Cousteau, just about the time Cody was promoted to Lieutenant.
While at a space station for relaxation, both Cody and Loreni were taken by crew members of Loreni’s sister, Karis. They escaped within a day or so, but a fluke wormhole dropped them on the opposite side of Federation space, in Romulan territory. The two of them spend the next nine months in exile.
