Kane, the charismatic leader of Nod, is well-known among CnC fans. But how much do we know about him? I just want you guys to share this knowledge with me and other forum members.

I've noticed something interesting in Scrin campaign (which is playable after you finish both GDI and Nod campaign). The Scrin Overseer identified Kane as unknown lifeform and gave order to further investigate about Kane. Perhaps this is a clue to the question; why Kane never age. But it gives us more questions too.

Who is Kane? (or What is Kane?)
What is Kane real agenda?

But one thing seems certain, Kane is not Scrin agent (Kane knew a lot about the Scrin but the Scrin itself doesn't know anything about Kane). As many of you have already known, Kane had lived since Soviet era and continued his presence secretly afterward. We've seen him dead for so many times and he still comes back no matter how many people kill him.


These are list of events of Kane's death (that I can remember).

-GDI assault on Sarajevo Temple during 1st Tiberium War (there are 2 endings, [1] Kane vanished in Ion cannon beam or [2] Kane was buried under pile of debris).
-McNeil really killed him in 2nd Tiberium War (stabbing him with a piece of debris).

And in TS Firestorm (Nod ending), it seemed that CABAL has handful of Kane's clones somewhere secret. Is this an explanation to Kane resurrection? Perhaps.

Please share your thought about Kane.

They aren't Kane clones, they are clearly different people.

Kane might as well be a robot, since he never ages, and when he dies he just returns after some days/years. Or maybe he is the Messiah, as he says?

Of course hes the Messiah.

In some C&C story document on a website I ALWAYS forget the address of it says he is Cain who was banished to the walk the lands of Nod forever in the bible, or something like that. But, look at the name spelling difference.

I think different spelling is because Westwood didn't want to disrespect bible by using Cain in the game.

Anyway I wonder what conclusion would be revealed of Kane.

Indeed. If players know too much about something it becomes relatively uncool. Like how CABAL is cool but if he is playable it is dribble.

Still, CABAL got defeated. What happened to Kane in the meantime? Did he get out of his stasis/holding cell thingy?

I think one thing should be added to the CnC3 FMV. I think there should be shocking revelation of Kane resurrection more than just the released VDO clip of Kane saying, "You can't kill the mesiah."

Kane deserves more glorious way to return to the Brotherhood of Nod.

Very true, but you have to consider that people aren't going to be very shocked and surprised that Kane is alive if his face is on the the front of the box.

Hmm.....at least there should be some shocking resurrection for GDI in the movie. GDI should be more confuse about Kane resurrection, not just this.

Well his TW character is so much better then his TS incarnation.

Its just like TD, helping the poor opressed countries and being charismatic instead of turning the entire globe into a green ball of tiberian waste :)

Turning Earth into Tiberium world will create Ascension.
And Ascension is Nod goal.

But I agree with his role in CnC3, helping the poor and obliterate the oppressor GDI.

Wandering again... :lol:

Ok this time I came here on purpose... I have looked up a lot of info on CnC (I know the whole story, I stink at games so I can't wait till I beat them) and I might want to get my hands on CnC3 sometime... but since the whole CABAL story is so interesting, I'm going to stick with TS and FS until the CnC3 price goes down a bit...

Anyways, I think Kane is the coolest antagonist I have ever seen... and he is the biggest thing CnC3 has going for them... If they reveal who or what he is, then they lose that edge, but if they keep complicating it, it just gets better and better! :lol:

From what I've read though, his goal has remained the same from TD to TW... Its just that in TS he tried to do it the fast way! :lol:

Also he isn't really helping the oppressed countries like they think he is, but he probably thinks he is doing mankind a favor by transforming them into Tiberium Creatures... and he probably does think he is the Messiah, which would explain his zeal... I like the way that he is able to justify everything he does, in his eyes and in the eyes of the poor... it makes him that much more deadly...

He is clearly not human, maybe a spirit or an alien... but he is also not Scrin either...

There is only one other character that comes even close to being as interesting as Kane in CnC imo... *starts a topic on CABAL*

EDIT: He doesn't need a shocking resurrection, just a shocking disappearance\death... Besides I'm sure that they carefully plan his entrance... I loved his entrance into TS...

I get the feeling Kane is trying to provoke the Scrin into Tiberifying the planet. It failed in TS with his missile, so he set off a liquid Tiberium detonation to alert the Scrin, who thought the planet would be completely covered by Tiberium. The Scrin then show up, find that the detonation is premature, so they will now (in an expansion or future title probably) try to accelerate the Tiberium growth in order to completely Tiberify the planet, so they can harvest it.

Note: I know the verb 'to Tiberify' doesn't exist, but it does now :lol:.

I like the way the Scrin called Tiberium. ****Ichor****
I wonder whether Kane origin would be know or not.
As we continued the saga, more mysteries just unfold themselves.
