Cody Cortazar was an Adam, one of the original colonists whose memories were altered before they awoke on Safehold on the Day of Creation. Before that, he was a Sergeant Major in the Terran Federation Marine Corps.

Cortazar and his wife Sandra lived in the Zion Enclave. Sandra was killed less than three years later by a slash lizard.

Later, during the War Against the Fallen, part of Cortazar original memories were restored when he was made a seijin. Thus, he became the basis for the legendary folk character Seijin Kohdy. (HFQ)
