Invented by the multifacted engineer and architect Cody Chancellor, the Codyfier is an unusual torture device used by Thaddeus Kaine in the dungeon of Castle Irondune during the mid-tenth century GUE. It is uncertain when Cody lived, but the level of technology correlates with that of the Age of Kaine, and Thaddeus may, in fact, have had the inventor comissioned to do so on his behalf.
