And he cried in a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come forth!' and Lazarus did, arise from the grave... I have always believed that faith was measured in deeds, not words. And while many of my children worshipped my name, their deeds betrayed them. In my absence they strayed from the path... But you... you my son, your faith never waned. Not in Honduras or Jericho, not in the Great Rio Insurrection. You risked your life countless times to topple GDI, to perpetuate our cause to honor my name.

LEGION my child, you are my greatest creation. It is time for you to take center stage. Time for you to achieve the purpose for which you were created. One vision, one purpose!
Kane last words to LEGION.


I'm Seth. Just Seth. From God, to Kane, to Seth.

Well done. You are truly becoming Kane's favorite. How would you like to ensure your place at the highest echelons of Nod? Surely you are ambitious enough to take a mission of tremendous magnitude. Your goal is so secret, even Kane knows nothing of it yet. You see, power shifts quickly in the Brotherhood. I've taken the liberty of dispatching your troops to the U.S. Kane's been loathe to attack America, but I feel that it's time and that you're the one to do it. This is the Pentagon. A full-frontal attack with your strongest forces should render their military center of opera—
Seth final try to eliminate Commander, only to be promptly shot in the head by Kane.

As the GDI forces takeoff for an another land assault, the free world holds its breath. This is Greg Burdette, WWN, somewhere in the Mediterranean.
— Tiberian Dawn Intro

And the death toll so far... god only knows. This is Greg Burdette, standing in front of what GDI terrorists have left of the St. Olafski orphanage.
— Tiberian Dawn, GDI background of the conflict.

War-torn Białystok. Once a happy farming town for peace-loving peasants. Today a slaughterhouse. Yet one more casualty in the insane GDI assault against mankind. Yet another in the series of villages wiped off the face of the Earth by the Global Defense Initiative and its misguided leader, General Mark Sheppard. And what crime did Białystok commit to warrant such carnage? Sources indicate that GDI terrorists were convinced this simple hamlet was involved in the manufacturing and shipping of Tiberium. When will this madness end? Only when General Sheppard and his vision of One World Order is stopped. This is Greg Burdette, Białystok.

The Brotherhood is at an evolutionary dead end. I am the only salvation to the continued supremacy of Nod. It is my world now.


I bring light to the lost, and hope to the hopeless! I bring the promise of peace, and the prophecy of the power of Tiberium!

His time is done! His legacy - a distant memory, for only I know the true path. Only I —
Marcion on Kane.

Kane was a coward, and a traitor, who long ago lost faith to the purity that is Tiberium... His violent demise was the result of his own lies, and blasphemies. And he will be brought down, to the pit, of Hell, and all there will STARE at him and ask: Can this be the one who shook the Earth and the Kingdoms of the World?
Marcion referring on Kane to LEGION.
