Lt. Com. Peter Tao was the young base Commander of GDI's Phoenix Base. He was murdered by the Nod general Cesar Vega soon after the beginning of the Second Tiberium War.[1]


Peter Tao was a friend of McNeil, a little younger than him, but old enough to attend the academy at more or less the same time.[1]


When Nod forces, led by general Cesar Vega, launched a surprise attack on Phoenix Base at the beginning of the Second Tiberium War, Tao and his troops were quickly overwhelmed, forcing Tao and a handful of survivors to evacuate and report that all GDI forces in the region had been destroyed. Tao himself was captured by Nod soon after and was tortured for important information, and then murdered by Vega, who cut his throat open. The video of his brutal execution was sent to GDI as a way for Vega to jeer at Michael McNeil.


Peter Tao only appears briefly in Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun during the GDI campaign.
