I think he actually is suppose to be a god. You know how how in the trailer it says "a mortal man, vs a living god" and I remember A guy on the portal made up was the conduit back story is, and he thought that Adams and his race are gods or something. Think about it, aliens could technecly be gods......damn the conduits story is so deep >:O --- CONDUIT MASTA!, GOLDENEYE SLAYA!, AND BLACK OPS PLAYA! Don't make me ROFL your sawks off!
Simok that story that the guy talked about.. that IS the story of Tcon, well at least what all the names and stuff are. I don't remember where it was just it was an interview with HVS and the invterviewer mentioned that myth and the HVS guy actually acknowlaged it and said that was the story/myth its taken from.
But then again maybe i'm just dillusional :S --- GE007:: S]-Elza-[D
