2002: Business mogul Erica Kane recruited
fledging cosmetics chemist Boyd Larraby right out of grad-school. Boyd
was working on a top-secret anti-aging cream that would revolutionize
the industry. Boyd stayed focus on his work until he met Erica’s
illegitimate daughter, opportunist Kendall Hart.
Boyd was attracted to new Enchantment finance officer Lena Kundera. But
Bianca Montgomery told Boyd not to waste his time. She was sure Lena was
a lesbian. Boyd was not convinced. They entered into a friendly wager
to see who could seduce Lena first. Bianca won.
Boyd was oblivious to the corporate scandal that was about to erupt at
Enchantment. Cambias Industries wanted to buy Enchantment. Lena was a
mole planted in the corporation to steal Boyd’s anti-aging cream
formula. When Erica successfully defended against the buyout, Michael
Cambias began a barrage of personal attacks against the Kane women. When
Michael raped Bianca, Boyd felt partly responsible for letting her get
Kendall wanted to make Michael pay. Boyd agreed to help her. Boyd posed
as Michael in Las Vegas and married Kendall. Kendall was then going to
steal the Cambias fortune away in a divorce settlement. Only, when Michael
was found dead, Kendall became the prime suspect. Since she was legally
married to Michael, she looked to profit from his estate.
Boyd’s role in Kendall’s deception was revealed. He was put
on probation for obstruction of justice. But what hurt Boyd more was the
fact that Kendall still did not care about him. Boyd decided his time
in Pine Valley was done. He got a job in Pittsburg working on a drug for
burn victims. Kendall offered him his job back at Enchantment, but he
could not be bothered to respond.
