Henry Liu was the sole survivor of a Nod Separatists attack on his construction site, conducted using the newest AT-6 Flame Tanks. What would traumatize a civilian, only helped him maintain his cover, as he was a Nod operative, posing as a worker for nearly a decade. His work paid off when, in 2072, he discovered the headquarters of Echo, a secret GDI research project attempting to duplicate and improve upon Nod's weaponry, posing as a TCN storage facility. Within, he discovered and antique, 40 year old Obelisk of Darkness, which helped Nod create a new generation of obelisks.
The construction site was shut down for the night, but we heard rumbling. We thought maybe Jenkins was doing some late night maintenance, but then everything just… everything…. We were surrounded by fire, swirling around us, incinerating the equipment, burning people alive, engulfing the entire camp, and in the center of it was this black monster, this devil belching inferno everywhere… I was sure I was in hell.
