Bane is one of the villains from Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain.
Bane was the guardian of the Pillar of Nature. As such, he had the power to commune and bend Nature,which include: Warp all Nature life forms,summon Natural Phenomena,manipulate the Weather,the elements,etc at his own will. When he was corrupted by Nupraptor's attack at the Circle, he became insane and, along with DeJoule and Anacrothe, they created the Dark Eden, from where they started a plot to twist the land.
With their combined powers, they created a massive energy that steamed from the apex of the structure, creating a dome around it that started spreading through the landscape, leaving behind only a bizarre and twisted parody. Bane's powers created many mutated abominations outside the dome. Kain, after meeting with the vampire Vorador, proceeded to the Dark Eden to kill the corrupted guardians, fighting the monsters along the path. He finally meets the three guardians inside the place, but Anacrothe runs away and summons Malek to help them. Kain then summons Vorador, making Malek angry and neglecting the other two.
Bane and DeJoule then escapes to a open area, where they fight Kain, while Malek take on Vorador. The two tag up to fight the vampire, with Bane creating puddles of water to trap Kain while DeJoule fires blasts of energy from a safe spot. However this was not enough, as Kain kills both of them.
