Villain Overview

I am the Dark Lord who will restore the Sith to glory. They call me Bane.
~ Darth Bane
The Sith killed each other; victims of their own greed. But from the ashes of destruction, I was the last survivor. I chose to pass my knowledge unto only one. I created a legacy so resilient that now you come before me. (chuckles) Have you come to be my apprentice? You must kill me to gain my place.
~ Darth Bane's spectre speaking to Yoda.

Darth Bane, born under the name of Dessel, is a crucial posthumous antagonist in the Star Wars franchise. He was the Sith'ari and the Dark Lord of the Sith responsible for creating the Rule of Two. He is the titular villainous protagonist of the novels Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, Darth Bane: Rule of Two, and Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil.

In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, he was voiced by Mark Hamill, who also portrays Luke Skywalker in the same series and The Joker in the DC Animated Universe.

Personality

Bane is a hateful Social Darwinist, believing that the weak only deserve to serve the strong, who should rule, and that equality was a lie. This was what drove him away from the brotherhood, as they advocated equality amongst the Sith. He is extremely dedicated to the Sith’s beliefs and wants to destroy the Jedi, even when it means thinking in the long term. Bane focuses on absolutely imparting his ideals to his apprentice and believes his Rule of Two could continually strengthen the Sith. Bane also believes that the natural ambition the Sith possesses keeps them from functioning properly in great numbers and the infighting draws them away from fighting the Jedi. Bane is also quite dedicated to the classic ways of the Sith, taking the title of Darth after it had been forbidden for years. He also continually studied the ways of old Sith Lords to use for his own ends. Bane’s will is particularly strong, he entrenches himself deeply in the dark side and has rarely shown any inclination to give up in a fight. Bane also looked down on focusing on material possession and wealth, only using such things to help the Sith order. Bane also considered an honor to be a foolish idea, but while he was a ruthless killer, he thinks very little of those who kill without reason, seeing them as barbaric fools.

Powers and Abilities

Bane is an extremely powerful Sith Lord in all aspects of the role. His lightsaber training with Kas’im gives him incredible skill and when he received his orbalisk armor, he took on an all offense fighting style derived from the Diem So style. After losing it, Bane uses a more complicated, unpredictable style that had various evasion moves. He is so fast he can deflect rain with his lightsaber and was called a force of nature by some. Bane’s power with the Force is vast, granting him telekinesis that he can use to move objects or unleash extremely powerful blasts of force, use extremely powerful force lightning, and draw on the dark side to unleash incredible Force Waves that can devastate almost anything caught in them. However, Bane cannot use this technique too much as it is quite taxing. He also studies many of the ancient knowledge of past Sith, which he used for things like making Sith Holocron. Bane is extremely good at taking physical pain thanks to his experience with the orbalisks and is also quite resistant to poisons. Bane also can draw on negative emotions to increase his power and strength.
