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.

In the dining room, Maureen tells Kelly and Ben she's come to visit. Kelly asks why she's really there. Maureen says she's concerned about Ben. She learns of his new job and questions him staying in town. Ben says he may or may not be having a baby. Maureen gushes about being a grandmother and then apologizes to Kelly. She's glad Kelly and Ben are over their differences. Kelly hisses that her father's death, and the way Maureen cared more about defending Ben, hasn't been forgotten. Maureen wants to reconcile as a family. They agree to meet tomorrow. Kelly gets Maureen a room. Once alone, Maureen sees 'Sherry' in the newspaper and realizes she's married to Victor Newman.

Neil understands why he left - he's sorry if he hurt him. Malcolm is sorry he hurt him with Dru. He wants to put all that aside - he's grown up. "When are you going to grow up, Neil?" He says he's been acting like a brat. Neil hollers that Malcolm hasn't changed. He challenges him to head out the door. Malcolm tells Neil he needs him. "I love you." They discuss the blindness. Neil says he hasn't been tempted to drink - he'll be able to see again one day. Malcolm asks, "What if it's never?" Neil goes on about how lucky he is.

Colin just wants Cane's advice about the boutique business - he needs a guy's point of view. Cane will help if he tells him about his meeting. Colin laments their trust issues. He stands to leave but Cane stops him and gives him a rundown on what he needs to know. Colin likes the gleam in his eye and realizes Cane misses working for a powerful company. Nearby, Lauren talks to Lily about the boutique's lingerie sales. Lily says she bought some, but spent more time out of them than in them. Lauren asks, "What's your secret?"
