Cane first appeared in Genoa City in January 2007 as the mystery man on the other end of Amber Moore's online instant messaging who was looking for his real mother. We know that he was raised by a woman named Violet, and that he grew up with an uncle down in Australia.
Cane married Amber and they wound up divorced when it came to light that she had scammed him. It was discovered that his real mother is Jill Abbott. Cane was given a position at Jabot Cosmetics, and fell in love with Lily Winters.
Cane and Lily became engaged, but Chloe told him he had got her pregnant on a drunken night out, and so Lily broke things off. Cane then married Chloe to cement his rights to his child. They lived together, and Cane became CEO of Jabot.
Chloe and Cane got a quick divorce when it came to light that Billy Abbott was actually the baby's father. He reunited with Lily, and they married, but they broke up again when it was revealed that he was not actually Phillip Chancellor III, and that the real Chancellor heir was still alive and had sent Cane to Genoa City in his place. Cane told the truth about who he was, and the danger he was in with cattle rustlers from Australia, and he and Lily got back together.
Cane, who had bought Jimmy's Bar, sold it to Mackenzie, and returned to life in business when Kay and Jill forgave him. He fought for Lily's life as she battled ovarian cancer. After Lily recovered, she and Cane began raising their twins, Matilda and Charlie, who were carried by Mac. Cane troubles from Australia began again, when his father's henchman, Blake, caught up with him and demanded five million dollars. Cane devised a scheme to get the money from his employer, Tucker McCall using a fake identity. Sofia helped him. Unfortunately, the scam was exposed and Sofia and Cane were fired. Colin, Cane's father, showed up in Genoa City and began wooing Jill and threatening Cane, who had put him behind bars. Colin set his sights on the twins, married Jill, and brought Cane's evil twin to town to help in his evil plot. Cane appeared to get shot and at Colin and Jill's wedding, but it was actually his twin. Cane let everyone believe he was dead and worked with his estranged mother, Genevieve, to bring down Colin and foil his attempt to kidnap the kids. Once everyone realized Cane was alive, he became persona non grata, and went back to work at Jimmy's Bar. Lily served him with divorce papers, but Jill is slowly letting him back into her life.
