Drake's parents were killed when Nod bombed a museum during his youth. This later inspired him to write Kane: False Prophet, a book dedicated to debunking Kane's image and claims. Drake was assassinated by a Nod Fate Squad in 2027 and the book seized before it could be released. A criminal dossier on Kane, compiled by Lia Suskind, drew on many excerpts heavily censored by GDI InOps.
Jannero Drake is mentioned in the criminal dossier on Kane.
