Part 49: FS NOD 05: Escape from CABALFS NOD 05: Escape from CABAL
Escape from CABAL
CABAL HAS GONE ROGUE! CABAL HAS GONE ROGUE!
Location: Unknown, Unknown
Objective: Evade CABAL's forces and retreat to the Montauk.
Briefing: CABAL has betrayed us all. We must escape and regroup in order to repay him for his treachery. There is an abandoned airfield nearby; if we can reach it, we have a chance. Once there, we must repair the array to contact our forces and call for an immediate evacuation. We have no information or tactical support now that CABAL has gone rogue. DATA LINK CLOSED.
Author's note: I love how evil CABAL is in the cutscene. This mission, however, is one of the more forgettable examples in all four campaigns.
Occupation: Sentient Artificial Intelligence
Voiced/Played by: Milton James
Artificial Intelligence developed by the Brotherhood of NOD using GDI's EVA as a starting point after NOD managed to "capture" GDI's AI in the first Tiberium War. After the partial dissolution of the Brotherhood following the end of the Tiberian Sun campaign, CABAL gained further sentience and began his own quest for world domination. Displays autonomy and reveals that he was the one who ordered the recovery of the Tacitus, and the execution of Tratos. Is the only salvation for the continued supremacy of NOD.
