Darth Bane was a Sith Lord who lived during the time of the Old Republic, and is considered to be one of the most important figures in the history of the Sith Order.
Born on the planet Apatros, Bane began his life as a miner before discovering his connection to the Force. He joined the Sith Brotherhood of Darkness, a faction of the Sith Order, and quickly rose through the ranks. However, he became disillusioned with the Brotherhood’s leadership and set out to create a new Sith Order that would be more powerful and more focused on the principles of the dark side of the Force.
Bane’s philosophy was based on the idea of the Rule of Two, which held that there should only ever be two Sith Lords at any given time: a master and an apprentice. This ensured that the power of the Sith would be concentrated in a single individual, making them stronger and more effective. Bane took on an apprentice, Darth Zannah, and trained her in the ways of the dark side.
Bane was a master of many dark side techniques, including the ability to manipulate the minds of others and to create powerful Force storms. He was also a skilled combatant, and was able to defeat multiple opponents at once with his lightsaber.
Bane’s legacy lived on long after his death. The Rule of Two became a cornerstone of the Sith Order, and many subsequent Sith Lords followed in Bane’s footsteps. However, Bane’s emphasis on individualism and the concentration of power in a single individual ultimately led to the downfall of the Sith Order, as infighting and treachery among the Sith apprentices often led to their destruction.
Despite his role as a villain, Bane was remembered as one of the most important figures in the history of the Sith Order, and his influence could be seen in the actions of Sith Lords for centuries after his death.
