How dare she question Kane?! She feigns loyalty and obedience, but do you see how she looks at him? As if she were his equal? If she were here, I would gladly put a bullet in her head.
- Abbess Alexa Kovacs to LEGION.

The Betrayal of Kilian Qatar is the ninth mission of Kane's Wrath. It is a false flag operation designed to discredit Kilian Qatar.

Background[edit | edit source]

I need your assistance LEGION. In the guise of Killian, you must attack Temple Prime. You must kill our brothers so Killian can be exposed for the traitor she is.
- Abbess Alexa Kovacs to LEGION.
Since childhood I have dreamed of seeing Temple Prime rebuilt, restored to its former glory. Perhaps Kane’s faith in you is not entirely misplaced.
- Abbess Alexa Kovacs to LEGION.

While LEGION was in Africa destroying the MARV, Kovacs intecepted a transmission between the Legendary Insurgent and General Kilian Qatar. In the transmisssion, Qatar privately expressed her doubts about Kane to the Insurgent. Being a fanatic believer of Kane, Kovacs perceived this to be treason and planned to discredit Qatar. She used LEGION to attack Temple Prime and steal the ion shield plans for GDI; these renegade Nod forces would ostensibly be operating under Qatar's direction. Kovacs confided to LEGION her distrust of Qatar. The abbess believed the general would inevitably betray Kane. Kovacs sought to provoke a response from Kane against Qatar before the general's treachery reached fruition.

The renegade Nod led by Kovacs and LEGION would attack the Temple and leak the ion disruption technology to GDI. This would implicate Qatar as aiding GDI to destroy the Temple and Kane.

Brother Against Brother[edit | edit source]

LEGION, GDI encroaches on Temple Prime and the Prophet, you must keep these heathens from desecrating our most holy temple, no matter what his eminence may-
- Abbess Alexa Kovacs to LEGION.
GDI base

The GDI siege of Temple Prime was already under way. A renegade commando destroyed a GDI outpost and cleared the way for an MCV. The renegades helped destroy the GDI besiegers. The Temple initially thought the renegades were friendly reinforcements but became suspicious when the renegades failed to identify themselves.

LEGION, we have transferred control of your forces to Alexa, she will lead the attack on Kane’s army herself.
- Announcer to LEGION.

The renegades denounced Kane when challenged and drew the Temple's attention. Kovacs took control of the renegade bases to occupy the defenders while a small commando-led team, led by LEGION, infiltrated the Temple. The team penetrated the defenses and stole the ion shield plans before exfiltrating by attack bike.

Excellent, we've done more than enough damage to ensure Kilian's ruin. Now, disengage, we do not want to damage the temple itself.
- Alexa to LEGION after the ion shield plans was stolen.

With the plans evacuated by drop ship the renegades disengaged before causing the Temple serious damage.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

Disabling the ion disruption defenses was central to GDI's final assault on the Temple Prime. The resulting ion cannon strike and detonation of the Liquid Tiberium Bomb was ultimately as Kane intended. Kane's supposed death in the explosion worked to Kovacs advantage; General Qatar declared herself Nod's leader and further discredited herself in Kane's eyes by cooperating with GDI against the Scrin.

Qatar's actions after the destruction of Temple Prime compounded the ploy's success and convinced Kane of the general's infidelity.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

At first you start with a commando on the upper left corner of the map. Blow up the power plant nearby and stop the watch towers near the AA batteries. You have the option of also destroying the GDI Barracks. Regardless when you destroy the AA batteries your MCV will arrive and a squadron of Vertigo bombers will bomb the area and the commando will die. But if you want to save the commando, move her into Temple Prime after destroying the last AA battery.

In easier difficulties you can just send the group of reinforcements against GDI in time with Alexa's attack and Kane's forces. However in harder difficulties you will need to build a base while using the group as a cover. Regardless of what you do the GDI base will eventually be destroyed.

Afterwards the battlefield will expand, revealing another entrance to Temple Prime. You have just a commando and a saboteur. Use the commando to take out all the troops there and blow up the laser fence in the entrance by shooting at the barrels near the laser fence control tower. Move on with the commando while leaving the saboteur behind. Take out the patrols and move the saboteur near the commando. Take out the second laser fence.

Move the commando first again, take out any troops nearby and move the saboteur to this last fence; it will be a little tricky as there are obelisks ahead. Do not take out the fence yet. You will notice that there are red wire lines running to the ground from 6 power plants to the base defenses (3 on the left and 3 on the right). Take out the power plants and the fence, then move in the saboteur.

Afterwards he will exit mounted on an attack bike. If you want to move him to the evacuation point unharmed (which is a bonus objective), be careful of the patrols. You don't have to kill the patrols but be quick. When you exit Temple Prime's defenses, it is easy, just move the saboteur all the way down and you will finish the mission (if you want the saboteur to be safer move him through your allies' base to go to the far corner of the map).

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Sometimes a rare glitch can happen where control to the army that was supposed to be transferred to Alexa will remain for the entire mission.
  • In some versions there is a bug which after victory will cause the scenario to take the player back to the menu screen rather than continuing, preventing progress in the campaign.
