A former nobleman assassinated as part of a greater
plan of higher doing. He was resurrected as a vampire by Mortanius.
Enraged by his death and quest for his revenge, he didn't think
of the consequences. He killed his assassins and was called by
a higher power to restore the pillars and Ariel told him to restore
the pillars, to find who orchestrated his death. He originally
did it to find a cure for vampirism, but there isn't one. His
quest led him to the Circle of Nine, the guardians of the Pillars
of Nosgoth. Nupraptor was the first guardian he met and destroyed.
As he continues on his journey he gains magic
spells, and new weapons and attacks. As the Serafan and bandits
fall by the score, Kain Runs in to the other Circles of Nine,
Malek, his Soul was fused to a hellish set of armor for failing
the Circle of Nine and allowing six of them to die at the hands
of Vorador. So he is bent on getting his revenge for his suffering.
Kain did not defeat Malek, so he required some assistant.
Then he met Moebius the time guardian, who told
him to find Vorador. He did and Vorador told him not to meddle
in the the affairs of humans, it would bring him nothing but trouble.
As Kain thought about the advise, he went on with his journey
as he heard nothing.
Then Moebius points to Kain and have the people
of the city attack him, as Kain is the final vampire left. He
massacred all the people in the town then after Moebius. He decapitates
Moebius. Then he journeys back to the Pillars of Nosgoth. When
Kain got to the Pillars, He saw Mortanius was confronted by Anarcrothe
saying it was his fault that Kain was destroying the Circle of
Mortanius said he had to because all of them had
been corrupted by Napraptor. Mortanius and Anarcrothe fought,
because Mortanius wouldn't join him saying they exists for the
the Circle; the Circle doesn't exist for them. Since Mortanius
was the guardian of the Death Pillar obviously he won that fight.
Then Kain stepped out form the pillars saying that he Mortanius
will have to die also. Final fight you see Kain Kill Mortanius,
but then his body transforms into another demon which had posses
Mortanius. He tell Kain how he was a pawn in his plan to kill
the whole Circle of Nine.
He encounters Malek again along with two other
members of the Circle of Nine; Bane and Dejoule. Kain calls on
Vorador to deal with Malek, as he relentlessly kills then other
two. He makes his way to the Avernus Cathedral where he founds
the legendary blade the Soul Reaver.
He defeats Azimuth deep with in the Cathedral.
Then Arrives at King Ottmar's Castle, where he is capable of gaining
control of Ottmar's army; So he can stop the Nemesis from invading
and taking over Nosgoth. He needs to find the Dollmarker to restore
Ottmar's Daughter to her original self. So another side quest
begins; he destroys and receives the army of Ottmar to fight against
the Nemesis. Before he reaches the Nemesis' stronghold he was
sent into the past with a time streaming device, and he saw Moebius
talking to the people of the city about kill vampires as a curse
on their land which started the great vampire purge, and Moebius
wanted to speak to King William, later known as the Nemesis.
Moebius arms him with Soul Reaver and tells him
a vampire is after his life. So Kain encounters William and destroys
him, and breaks William's blade. This was the final draw for the
people to start the vampire crusade and try to wipe them out once
again. Kain returned back to his own time to see Vorador being
executed in front of him. The people believe that all the vampires
Then Kain Defeats him and Ariel appears and Tell
him he is the final member of the Circle of Nine. So if he dies
the World will be restored and new set of guardians will be born,
or he could live and it would cause of his existence damn the

and it was setup for him to become the Balance pillar guardian.(Playing
