    Roles in Command & Conquer games

    Tiberian Sun

    TS Nod logo transparent.png The following is based on the Nod campaign of Tiberian Sun and might contradict canon.

    In Tiberian Sun, Daniel Kucan portrayed Jake McNeil, brother of Michael McNeil. Nod attacked the Hammerfest base in Norway to capture Jake McNeil and took him to Kane for interrogation regarding GDI's leadership and targets during the Second Tiberium War. This led to the Philadelphia's destruction by three ICBM missiles at the end of the campaign.

    Tiberium Wars

    As a Nod reporter

    In Tiberium Wars, he portrayed an unnamed Nod reporter who was fielded in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and followed the course of the Siege of Temple Prime. As soon as he received word that GDI was positioning the ion cannon above Temple Prime, he started repeating religious Nod chants until the satellite feed was lost.

    Kane's Wrath

    As a Steel Talons commander

    In Kane's Wrath, he portrayed an Australian commander of GDI's Steel Talons division. In the mission What is Rightfully Ours, he taunts LEGION prior to the battle. In the post-mission cutscene of the A Grand Gesture mission, he reports to his superior that there was no sign of terrorism that would have caused the destruction of the base he was situated in, and is presumably killed by a nearby explosion.

    Tiberian Twilight

    Kane's gone? Yeah, right!

    Daniel Kucan appears briefly in the GDI ending of Tiberian Twilight as a passer whom the reporter asks for his opinion on Kane's ascension, to which he expresses his disbelief and walks away.

    Other games

    Daniel Kucan appears as Daniel in Westwood Studios' 1997 Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny and as the Fremen soldier Geisel in the 2001 Emperor: Battle for Dune.
