Nod has stolen some key components to our Tiberium research. Retrieve them. A local civilian is willing to help clear the way and take us to the site, if we free his wife and return her to safety.
- Mission briefing

Elemental Imperative is a GDI mission in The Covert Operations expansion to Tiberian Dawn.


Nod forces were able to steal key components from ongoing GDI research on Tiberium. GDI has sent a small strike force to prevent Nod from fleeing and recover the components. A civilian has offered to draw Nod forces away if GDI can save his wife from Nod captivity.


  • The mission can actually be completed without rescuing the civilian's wife presuming that the player already know the location of the components.
