QATALEII5UE NF PAST CNflFLIIZT
The conflict between the Global Defense Initiative and the Brotherhood of Nod originated in the late twentieth century. GDI, now the most powerful military organization on Earth, was formed forty-five years ago by the final act of the United Nations Global Defense Initiative.
Conceived as a united military force for global peacekeeping, GDI relies upon the technological sophistication of its weaponry, and the superior training and loyalties of its officers, to end violent conflict between countries across the planet. At the same time, the Brotherhood of Nod, led by the charismatic Kane, grew to prominence. Working Largely in third world countries, wherever there was discontent, unrest, unhappiness - there was Kane.
With the promise of a New World Order and bankrolled by the illicit Tiberium research and trade that Kane made famous, the Brotherhood of Nod began to gain power. A few scattered, disaffected units grew into an army - an army with powerful atomic weaponry, ruthless tactics, and a Tiberian fortune.
Kane was presumed dead after the final battle of Nod's first comprehensive bid for global domination. Though Nod was effectively disbanded and GDI claimed total victory, Kane's body was never recovered. (In hindsight, top GDI personnel have concluded that this was a costly oversight.) Kane's followers continued to hold vigils in the belief that their leader would someday return.
During the decades following his disappearance, Kane sightings became common myth, especially prevalent amongst regions surrounding former Nod strongholds. After a series of GDI investigations, the case was closed and the records sealed. Kane was officially declared dead - and a disenfranchised Nod became scattered into separate factions.
In the current global battle climate, GDI watches over world combat situations from the Philadelphia, an orbital command center stationed high above the earth.
