He was [[spoiler:betrayed by a close friend for personal gain (Zeke, who was convinced by [[BigBad Kessler]] that he could get powers like Cole's if he gave him the Ray Sphere) who would later come to regret his decision]], and in the second game, he would [[spoiler:ultimately [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice himself]] to defeat a powerful conduit called [[{{Satan}} the Beast]] with just a hint of a resurrection (the question mark shaped lightning bolt in the final scene) [[note]]Though WordOfGod {{Jossed}} this theory[[/note]]]].
