- "Come my friends. 'Tis not too late to seek a newer world."
- — Raul Menendez quoting the poem Ulysses.
Cordis Die officially became active on June 22nd, 2014 as a social networking political movement. Popularity of the group spread rapidly due to the charisma of its unknown leader, known as "Odysseus," or "Ulysses." "Odysseus" is actually a narco-terrorist (Raul Menendez).
The main goal of Cordis Die seems to cripple capitalist governments all around the world, particularly the United States of America. It has also targeted dictatorships, such as Iran and North Korea, which were early protest targets. Cordis Die accomplish this mostly with mass political rioting organized through social media. But also, the word freedom for Menendez means the anarchism in a country without a government who can control a country and that's the principle objective for the organization.
Cordis Die has an extremely large military arm within its organization capable of challenging the might of the superpowers around the world. The wealth obtained by Raul Menendez through weapons and drug trafficking has allowed Cordis Die to develop new military technology and construct high tech secret military bases, such as in Myanmar and Haiti. Cordis Die's ideology attracted elite agents in most of the world's top organizations and communities, including many special forces units and intelligence agencies. The huge number of troops, armored vehicles, drones, special forces, and unconventional armies caused chaos around the world, with many small conflicts building up Raul Menendez's empire.
Cordis Die's international organization managed to recruit and equip large amounts of extremely well-trained operators from their massive political movement and gathered millions of unemployed former soldiers as well as civilians, such as the Mercs and Militia. Rogue officials and agencies would also ally with Cordis Die, such as the Pakistani ISI, granting him access to advanced secret factories for war materials. Overall, the strength of Cordis Die, their military allies, and secret contacts gave Raul Menendez a chance at finding the means to cripple the United States' and China's drone fleet.
