Ko'Dan lived in a high priced apartment in a town to the west of the main town on Zafran VIII. In December 2258, two Techno-mages named Galen and Isabelle were in desperate need to make authentic breen to bribe another Narn captain by the name of Ko'Vin. They impersonated chefs and claimed to be from the Chemical Culinary Institute and claimed to be visiting Ko'Dan because he had won a cooking contest.
Their first attempts at making fresh breen were failures, and they worked with Ko'Dan through the night well into the morning on creating the "perfect" breen. Ko'Dan insisted they take some of the breen with them when they departed.
