Cordis Die became active in the Call of Duty world thanks to Raul Menendez. In that world, the popularity spread due to the charisma of its original leader, Raul Menendez, who died trying to step through the time bridge built by Ben Hoving. Left without a leader, sixteen-year old Madison Young decided to become the new leader.
The goal of Cordis Die used to be crippling capitalist governments all around the world, particularly the United States and the Amalgamated Islamic Caliphate. However, after Madison Young took over as leader, the goal of Cordis Die became that of a dictatorship; Madison aimed to destroy the Caliphate and convert the US government into an imperialistic government, just like Ben (only Ben wanted to use lethal force and Madison wanted to use persuasive speech\manipulation of people).
Cordis Die has an enormous military arm thanks to the actions of Raul Menendez in Black Ops II, who used his wealth from drug trafficking and weapons to create new military technology and build secret bases. When Madison Young took over as leader of Cordis Die, the military arsenal grew to include new drones, futuristic UAVs, tanks, and firearms. Later, Madison's popularity allowed her to recruit ex-military soldiers from almost every country in the world. In the end, Madi's popularity allowed her to obtain an enormous military arsenal that she claims is "bigger than China."
World War 3: Sinister OperationsEdit
In the World War 3 Sinister Operations, (Act II), Cordis Die is framed by Muhammad's Army for launching a terrorist attack against Russia; Muhammad's Army soldiers hijack a subway train in the Moscow Metro area, with the intention of bombing a station with it. Alexandra Rozhdestvenski and her team try to stop it, but during a federal investigation by the Russian authorities, the fingerprints of Mercenaries are found on the weapons used by terrorists and the supposed "counterterrorist forces", therefore allowing the Russians to blame Cordis Die. Later, the President's daughter is abducted by Alejandro Rojas and the two organizations resolve to clear their names by stopping Rojas from unleashing havoc on the USA.
World War 3: The Hit on The InnocentEdit
In World War 3: The Hit on The Innocent, Cordis Die becomes part of the Imperial Federation of the Americas, a fusion of the Iron Hand, Cordis Die, and other corporations with Tommy Cheng's empire.
