First Tiberium War


Kane's second-in-command


Eric Gooch

I'm Seth. Just Seth. From God, to Kane, to Seth.
- Seth

Seth was Kane's second in command, and the first superior of the future Commander of Nod during the First Tiberium War. He takes his name from the biblical Seth, the third son of Adam. Seth provided briefings for lower ranking Nod officers.


Well done. You are truly becoming Kane's favorite. How would you like to ensure your place in the highest echelons of Nod? Surely you are ambitious enough to take on a mission of tremendous magnitude. Your goal is so secret even Kane knows nothing of it yet. You see, power shifts quickly in the Brotherhood.

I've taken the liberty of dispatching your troops to the U.S. Kane's been loath to attack America, but I feel that it's time, and that you're the one to do it.

This is the Pentagon. A full frontal attack with your strongest forces should render their military center of opera--
- Seth's final attempt to eliminate the Commander, only to be discovered and executed by Kane.

Seth's ambition and ruthlessness in combat earned him a place as Kane's second in command. He could be a powerful ally, but Nod commanders were warned to never trust him fully.[1]

Seth was an ambitious man, wary of other competent commanders with such a trait, who irritated him. This becomes evident when Seth passes the order to an up-and-coming commander to destroy a civilian village, and remarks that there should be only scientists lurking about, while in reality, there's a fully staffed GDI base in the vicinity. Given Nod's intelligence gathering skills, this misinformation was deliberate. Seth later tried to send the commander to attack Washington, D.C., an act that "even Kane knew nothing of". Obviously planning a coup, it was also likely that Seth planned for the Commander to fail in the attack, thus eliminating a rival. Before the Commander could embark on his mission, Seth was shot in the head by Kane during the video call, who cancelled the suicidal attack order right afterwards.

(after killing Seth) Yes... power shifts more quickly than some people think... I am Kane.
- Kane's first personal appearance in the Nod campaign.

Seth's preserved corpse

Instead of simply being disposed of in some manner, his corpse was kept perfectly preserved inside a machine, as a warning to anyone who would dare circumvent Kane's authority. Captain Nick "Havoc" Parker found his preserved body while attempting to kill Elena Petrova and rescue Sydney Moebius. Presumably Seth's body was lost in the destruction of the Temple of Nod in Cairo when the First Tiberium War came to its close.
