It had served him ill at times. It was beginning to appear that her interesting face covered a most uninteresting mind. I wish you to find out for me. I have five children, Mr. Monk, and without Angus, his business will very rapidly cease to provide for us.
He no longer saw her as an overwordy woman fussing over some fancied offense, but one with a profound cause for the fear in her eyes. Her eyes flickered up to his. I spoke to a Sergeant Evan. He was most kind, but he could do nothing to help me, because I have no proof that Angus did not go of his own will.
It was Sergeant Evan who gave me your name. The shadow of a smile crossed her features and was gone. Perhaps it was a reflection in the change in his own expression. But this is different. Always before he has informed me, and left provision for us, and of course he left instructions for Mr. Arbuthnot at his place of business. Never before has he missed an appointment, or failed to leave authority and direction so Mr. Arbuthnot might act in his absence. Monk, and he has contacted no one!
He went from home to his place of business. From there he told Mr. Arbuthnot that he was going to see his brother. It seemed an unremarkable occurrence. She looked up, staring at him intently, as if the meaning of this were so vital to her she could not believe it would not have the same impact on him. Stonefield and asked if your husband arrived safely, at what time, and in what circumstances he left? He had already assumed the answer. I confess, it is not something I understand. Monk, will you find out what happened to my husband for me? My resources are limited.

Kane's campaign did not escalate in victories as McNeil and his forces defeated most of his military leaders and survived a direct Nod assault sent by Kane himself. Capturing Umagon , Kane unveiled his now ready Tiberium missile. The missile's launch was foiled by a daring GDI assault under the command of Michael McNeil , who ignored his superior's orders to refrain from the attack in order to allow GDI more time to plan and prepare for the deciding conflict.
Kane was confronted by McNeil within his pyramid. But Slavik, a brilliant tactician, would unify it. Although the AI had not made a favorable impression on either GDI or Nod, Kane recognized that there were solid foundations which to improve upon. Conceptualization of the plan that would take the Brotherhood to the end of the Third Tiberium War continued. Kane used information from shards of the Tacitus to help develop the new AI. Anton Slavik was assassinated after the Firestorm Crisis by a follower of Marcion.
This was partially legitimized by controlling the largest faction of the Brotherhood. Marcion's ideology also required demonizing the supposedly-deceased Kane. Angered at being abandoned, Kane resorted to the familiar strategy of clandestinely reforging the Brotherhood. The reclamation of Nod began in the slums of Rio where minor Nod cells and the disaffected were impressed or cowed into Kane's service. Eventually, Kane's faction was strong enough to challenge Marcion and the Black Hand.
Just the Facts
Marcion was brought low in Australia and returned to the fold. As it was not yet prudent for Kane to return to the public spotlight, Marcion was required to act as a figurehead in the prophet's stead. In fact, Kane - completely intact and without a single scar following his regeneration - appeared in front of millions of television viewers when he interrupted a W3N news broadcast on the Philadelphia's destruction. Under Kane's leadership, the Brotherhood rapidly emerged as a serious global power once again.
Nod's most brilliant commander managed to defend Temple Prime to the last, even when traitorous Nod forces attempted to abort his mission - forces presumed to be led by Nod general Kilian Qatar , but in reality, controlled by LEGION on orders from Abbess Alexa Kovacs. Kane, whose last known whereabouts was inside the Temple, was once more presumed dead by all - even his own commanders.
When Kane once again resurfaced he ordered his most loyal commander to destroy Qatar's forces, and shortly thereafter he ordered her execution for treason. Finally, the same commander successfully defended an alien tower from GDI attack, making it invulnerable to human assault. The war ended unsatisfactorily for Kane. The "Messiah" learned that Alexa Kovacs was plotting to poison and annihilate Legion, Kane's greatest creation. After hearing Alexa Kovacs revealing the truth concerning Kilian's treason, Kane was shocked and horribly disgusted, even ordering the Abbess to be interrogated without impunity.
Alexa committed suicide and the Tiberium Prophet suffered greatly from Legion's apparent demise. To make matters worse, the Tacitus still remained beyond his grasp making the Third Tiberium War more of a defeat than victory. However angered by such events, Kane remained cold and patient. He watched with increasing concern as GDI's experimentation rendered the device unstable. With the artifact in his hands, Kane was finally able to see his creation fulfill its purpose and unlock the Tacitus. Kane stayed out of GDI 's eye for the next decade, allowing Tiberium to ravage Earth and GDI 's power to fade, as it helplessly tried to fight the menace.
He was almost apprehended during a skirmish in south-east Africa , where the Widow prototype was being tested. Kane was inside the vehicle when it was captured by GDI forces, however, the troops did not inspect the interior, as the vehicle was of far more interest to GDI Command. He was rescued by a Black Hand commander.

In , the global spread of Tiberium was on the verge of making the planet uninhabitable to humans. In light of this crisis, Kane decided to approach GDI. To further convince them, he presented the Tacitus to the Council.

Kane's alliance with GDI caused much strife within the Brotherhood. Gideon , an outspoken, fanatical Nod preacher decried the Prophet as a traitor to the cause of the Brotherhood and broke off, forming his own movement , much to the dismay of Kane  though it is debatable whether Gideon was Kane's opponent from the beginning. In order to hold all the assets, Kane needed information. As such, he devised a plan to create a GDI soldier that'd get him what he needed, without knowing that. For this, he chose Christian Pierce , an unlucky Kentucky farmer from Red Zone , to do his bidding.
His plan worked perfectly - after Pierce was manipulated into becoming Evelyn Rios ' most trusted aide, Kane had Gideon attempt to destroy Chicago by crashing a GST into it. To do so, he had to fight his way past "GDI" soldiers.

Pierce discovered the information was hundreds of years old and didn't appear to be of GDI origin. He smashed it. Kane stopped Pierce there. Even the GDI soldiers sent to stop him were actually disguised Nod troops. An irate Pierce attacked Kane, hitting him once, but Kane defeated and killed him. As the Incursion War went on, Nod's arsenal continued to grow and improve in light of the Separatists' modifications to their weaponry. Kane had personally overseen the development of a new stealth tank and was the mastermind behind a Nod raid to capture a functional Obelisk of Darkness held in a GDI lab to develop an Obelisk of Light that was capable of destroying aircraft.
However his best commander Alphus turned out to be Gideon's sleeper agent and hijacked the prototype Crawler, giving the Separatists a level playing field. In , the storm of world war has come again. Tensions between GDI and Nod mounted, as resentment on both sides, hidden for the past fifteen years, began to surface, and Ascension became a reality with the activation of the TCN.
The Ascension Conflict erupted when Kane initiated the final phase of his plan. His actions drew the attention of Nod Separatists and rogue GDI units under the command of Colonel Louise James , resulting in a brief, but an extremely bloody conflict that lasted ten days, but consumed countless lives. The only remaining implant was Commander Parker , so in order to protect him, Kane ordered Gideon to be brought to heel.
His will was done, and Gideon was brought to justice for the followers of Nod at a stage near Threshold When the Commander did not answer her how to shut it down, the rogue GDI leader shot him point-blank, only to have Kane arrive and strangle James at the very end. The activation of Threshold 19, and the bullet Parker took from James, began to take its toll on his vital status. Kane said that the commander is too fragile to live, and thus steps through the Scrin Portal, ascending in the process, leaving him and Lilly behind, the latter mourning Parker's slow and silent passing, his implant's shutdown sequence coming to a full circle.
As Parker arrives at the tower, he finds Kane, who reveals that it was not Kane who killed Lilly after all. James ordered an Orca Bomber strike to destroy the bunker Lilly was hiding in to get the Commander to despise Kane. Kane continues by explaining that Parker's optical implant is the key to activating the TCN, the Threshold's portal, and his Ascension. Failing that, he then warns that not doing so will doom Earth to Tiberium and never-ending war. Shortly afterward, James arrives and commands Parker to stand down.
After shooting Kane, Parker begins to walk towards the portal. James understands that he finally realized the truth and shoots him. But before she can put a bullet in his head, Kane pulls her gun away and tell the commander to activate the portal. Parker manages to turn on the portal, before losing consciousness again. Regaining consciousness one last time, Kane stands by the activated portal, tilts his head skeptically, and says, "Thank you," to the commander, before stepping through and leaving him to his fate. After the tower sends out visible beams to space, the W3N news reports that after the surge of the Scrin tower, the last piece of the Tiberium Control Network has been completed.
The Tiberium near Threshold 19 was also reported to be dissipating. Next, General Secretary Evelyn Rios claimed that to be a "historical moment" and that humanity has persevered. Another news report mentioned that thousands of Kane's followers simply vanished after entering the portal, and the tower is now dormant again. With GDI marking this as a success, its possible GDI might gather Tiberium near the tower to dissipate all of it, it's also possible that all the Tiberium on earth is starting to dissipate independently due to the tower's activity.
A random middle-aged man played by Daniel Kucan was street interviewed, and merely said "Kane's gone? Yeah, right. The GDI campaign shows two possible endings to the final mission, depending on whether the ion cannon is used on the Temple. If the ion cannon is used Kane ascends from the Temple's subterranean command center to the heavily damaged hall on the surface where he is engulfed by an ion cannon strike. Kane is portrayed and voiced by Joseph David Kucan , who also served as Full Motion Video director and dramatic director for games produced by Westwood Studios from to He has access to the Obelisk of Light.
Kucan frequently joked about his role and how he got it in the first place. In an interview , he said that Kane would, in fact, be a woman and that Tiberian Twilight was a musical. The only instance where he stated the true version was at CommandCom in Cologne. Since Westwood Studios did not have a large budget at the time, they employed the game developers as actors in full motion videos. When making a placeholder video to test the compression methods, Westwood assigned Kucan to say a line in which he would imitate a villain character.
That test video actually gave him the role of the charismatic leader of the Brotherhood of Nod, Kane. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki. Contents [ show ].

Was your call for help in these pages last year helpful? Yes, thanks to that message a contact was made. A significant contact, as it turns out. And how satisfied are you that you now know the correct solution? Completely satisfied. Edward Powys Mathers first came to the attention of the literary world with the publication of his translations and versions of Asiatic love poems.
Even at this early stage, there was an element of masquerade, as he introduced poems that were not translations but composed by Powys Mathers himself. He was heartened by the eager acceptance of his own poems; he created alter egos Mr J Wing and Mr John Duncan and disguised his authorship under their names.
His Observer crossword persona, Torquemada, was created in and he created more than puzzles using the name of the feared Spanish Inquisitor. And now the competition is re-opening?
