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.

Cane toasts Lily in the office after the fashion show. Lily thanks him for the flowers, but he didn't send them. She reads the card and throws it out. Cane gets it and sees it's from Colin. In the dining room, Jack and Summer talk about the great event and thank Kelly for her hard work. Kelly asks Jack about their do-over meal. Summer looks uncomfortable. Noah is heading out the door when he bumps into Caroline Spencer. They chat. Caroline joins Jack and meets Summer. Jack talks about making the show an annual event. Later, Jack tells Summer he's proud of her and they talk about how it might have been if she'd grown up with the Abbotts. Jack leaves and Kelly sits with Summer and gives her a thank you gift for her hard work - truffles. Summer says it was great; now she understands why her mom loved working at Jabot. Kelly's sure her mom would have been proud of her.
At the Chancellor Estate, Jill appears as Colin tells someone on the phone that his wife will lead them to the old girl's money. She questions him, but the doorbell rings. He jumps. "Knickers!" It's Billy and Johnny. Jill tells him Colin is dodging her questions. Colin makes a speech about his lovely wife. Colin takes Johnny so Jill can ask Billy about Victoria. Billy says she won't even see him - she's using the nanny as a buffer. He tells her he's back at Jabot. She's proud and thinks Victoria will be too. Billy warns her to be careful with Colin and leaves. After, Jill demands Colin answer her about the phone call. She didn't hear what he said, but knows he's putting a lot of effort into evading. The doorbell rings - it's Lily and Cane. Lily asks Colin, "What is it going to take to keep him out of their lives." Cane tells Jill that Colin sent Lily flowers. Colin turns to Jill and says the phone call was about the delivery. "No good deed goes unpunished," he laments. Lily says they'll never forgive him for trying to kidnap their kids. Colin thought they were on civil terms now. Jill thought so too. Colin sighs about the time he's missed out on with the grandkids and how he's getting older. Jill thinks the twins deserve to know their grandfather, though she's no fool - there will always be grey areas where her husband is concerned. Cane suggests to Lily that they be honest with the kids. Colin appreciates whatever they can do. Jill tells Colin he is changing, but next time send her flowers too - it makes a better cover story.
At the Club, Lily and Cane talk about making the fashion show a success. He kisses her and suggests some upstairs stress relief. Lily nixes the idea. Nearby, Devon helps Hilary with her dress. They wonder why Neil is late...and Chelsea. They find Lily and ask her. She has no idea and complains about Hilary's hair. Hilary assures her she can work the runway and still do her Jabot job. Devon can't believe Lily's attitude. Neil arrives downstairs and Michael says he looks marvelous before joining Lauren. They talk about the pregnancy and the test that should be run due to her age. They flash to having tests with Fen. Lauren asks if he'd be okay if their baby wasn't perfect. In the office, Kevin warns Chloe about making moves against Chelsea. Chloe says he's not the boss of her. Kevin warns her about her attitude toward Chelsea and the company. In the ballroom, Lily complains to Cane and Neil about Hilary. Cane doesn't think she'll do anything wrong. He wonders why Lily is staying angry. Devon finds Hilary and reassures her. Esmerelda appears and exchanges barbs with Hilary. Summer intervenes. Chloe appears hollering about bickering and bad shoes. She takes charge. Hilary warns Summer to watch Esmerelda doesn’t keep the jewelry. In the office, Neil tells Devon about Leslie’s sudden marriage.
Chelsea arrives at the Club and questions the accessories the models are wearing. Chloe says she made some changes when she was busy with something more important. Chelsea blurts, “It was Adam. They found Adam’s body.” By the bar, Lauren and Michael discuss Fen’s troubles. She blames herself and laments that she doesn’t deserve this baby. Michael reassures her. Lauren talks about needing to bond with the baby before doing any tests. Upstairs, Hilary hears Neil talking to Devon about Leslie. She enters and asks Devon to intervene with Chelsea and Chloe. Hilary tells Neil to be grateful – he doesn’t deserve to be treated like that. They discuss what love should be, and Neil gives a heartfelt speech before kissing Hilary. Chelsea and Chloe end up by Lauren and Michael downstairs with Chloe screaming she had a right to know Adam was dead. She is glad he died scared and alone. Upstairs, Lauren tells Devon and Kevin that Chloe and Chelsea are arguing in the dining room. Lily tells Cane she’s going to look for Hilary and she’ll be civil. Kevin arrives in the dining room as Chelsea tells Chloe she lost someone too. Chloe says Adam was evil. Chelsea screams that it was an accident, but Chloe won’t accept that because she uses Delia as an excuse to be the spiteful little b**** she’s always been. Chloe slaps her. “You’re a b****!”
