Todd was created by Irene Manning and the ever popular and despicable Victor
Lord. Unfortunately, he was not just conceived from bad but raised by it in the
form of Peter Manning. They all played a part in destroying the man he
could have become.
When Todd first came on the scene, he was a self-involved, destructive jock
with an anger problem. Some things have changed, others have not. Peter was always
pushing Todd to win and to make him proud. If he didn't, he was worthless.
When he was in college, Todd was an instigator and participant in the gang rape
of Marty Saybrooke. For quite a while, this was the type of person he was, and he seemed ok
Things started to change in both a good and bad way when he discovered he
was, in fact, a Lord: the son of Victor, nephew of Victoria. He now had someone
to care about him, but he also has to deal with what he considers the curse of
being Victor’s son.
Then came Blair, the blonde whirlwind trying to milk him of his fortune. They
fell in love, and it has been crazy ever since. He was married to Téa between
marriages to Blair. He drugged Téa on their wedding night to avoid sleeping
with her, so that should tell us a little. Actually, since Marty's rape and
finding out he was the son of a child molester, Todd has not been big on sex, so
with Blair it was special.
Todd cares for very few people, but those he does care about know it. It seems
the greatest love of his life is
daughter Starr. The others worthy of his heart are son, Jack; sister, Viki;
niece, Jessie; and friend/lawyer, Evangeline. Todd has another son, Todd, Jr.,
who he believes to be dead. This was a son born not out
of love but rape: Margaret forced Todd into sex, and Jr. was the consequence. If
that is not full circle, I do not know what is.
