Note to anyoneEdit

Darth Bane is dead. Do not ask about his ultimate fate. The article provides a source definitively stating that he died during the duel with Zannah. Anyone asking about this risks a block. Chack Jadson (Talk) 23:48, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

In his final duel with Zannah it was never officially revealed whether or not his essence transfer worked. The Huntress asks after the duel "Lord Bane", and recieves a firm reply from the body of Darth Zannah "No, I am Darth Zannah, Dark Lord of the Sith", though seconds after the twitch Bane developed in his left hand over the years, appears in Zannah. Due to lack of info on Zannah, its up for interpretation, though I would take it as a successful essence transfer, with a more than worthy apprentice waiting to learn.

--Darth Nather 09:03, November 4, 2010 (UTC)

Addition: Confirmation that Darth Bane died, and the essence transfer 'did not' work can be found on the Author Drew Karpyshyn's official site (Contains Spoilers) here: Navigate to books, then Dynasty of Evil.

"I’ll be honest; I thought it was pretty clear in my writing. I wrote the scene from Cognus’s point of view to keep you guessing to the last instant, but when Zannah proclaims “Darth Bane is gone. I am Darth Zannah, Dark Lord of the Sith and your new Master,” I thought it would be pretty clear.

The whole thing with Zannah’s hand twitching was only to show that some part of Bane had passed through to her. How much – was he still “alive” in some way, or is it just a small part of his identity imprinted on her – was supposed to be the ambiguous part. But I never wanted people to assume Bane had taken over Zannah’s body successfully." - Drew Karpyshyn

Sith'ari Section Edit

Darth Bane was not infact the Sith'ari, not only is this book the only time I've heard the title even mentioned, but Bane quickly dismissed the very idea of the existence of a Sith-ari. Granted he set into motion the Sith's eventual takeover of the galaxy, if you called Bane that nonsense to his face, you'd quickly find your face under his bootheel. Not to mention, that after he defeated Sirak in the dueling ring, aside from Sirak's thoughts in the Bacta Tank, the title Sith'ari was never mentioned again.

--Darth Nather 08:55, November 4, 2010 (UTC)

Why was it removed? Was there a vote? Shouldn't the deletion of a whole section be put up to a vote?--Black Jack Scarron 00:27, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

  • It was speculation and it wasn't that big or important of a section. Chack Jadson (Talk) 20:57, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
  • it's one thing when fans read too much into the author's writing. but drew k, heavily implies bane is the sith'ari, he does everything, but outright says it's bane. and it was an important part of the novel because bane meets the parameters of the sith'ari after he's told what the sith'ari is. so as a reader, we are told what the sith'ari must do. and as we read on we see bane fulfill the requirements. it should be re-added. it could be bts for god's sake. if anybody thinks it's not a big deal to remove, i equally or even more passionately believe it should be left in the article. --Black Jack Scarron 04:40, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

  • I agree it needs to be in. Whether he is or isnt the fact that he is sort of implied as the sith'ari is sort of important.Darth James 21:02, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Yes thank you, Sith'ari is still mentioned in Vader's article. It should remain in Bane's article.--Black Jack Scarron 00:17, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
  • I strongly believe that the sith`ari section of the Darth bane page SHOULD be included I have both the darth bane novels by drew k and as it has been said in `path of destruction` drew does imply that bane is the sith`ari and I agree It would take a brilliant sith mind to think of the rule of 2 and completely overthrow Kaan`s brotherhood that was the work of the true sith`ari-- 20:02, October 22, 2009 (UTC)Pope Dean the greatest.

5.3 Factual correction: Darth Bane's Species Edit

I think Darth Bane is part human, part Kath. Republic recruiters refer to him as a "Kath-mutt" in Chapter 3 of "Darth Bane: Path of Destruction". Gerd refers to him as an "ungrateful son-of-a-Kath-hound" in Chapter 1. Unsigned comment by Darth Fort (talk • contribs).

  • A kath hound is a type of animal, and therefore not a suitable partner for a Human. So no. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research (Comlink) 23:07, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
    • It's an insult, in that case. Like calling someone a son of a bitch. Chack Jadson (Talk) 00:42, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
  • It is possible that he is near or part human and from Dantooine. User:Wild Dog--Wild Dog 13:56, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
  • The pictures of him I've seen show him with red eyes, greenish skin, and dark walking under his eyes. The dark markings are probably Sith tattoos but the skin and eyes are strange for a full human. Maybe these are extreme effects of being physically changed by the dark side such as yellow eyes.
    • Working in the mines also, it is stated, has had a pretty negative effect on his physical health and complexion. The Haunted Angel 17:56, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
  • And Don't forget that in Dynasty of Evil there's a list of all the main characters and their species, listing Darth Bane as a Male Human. FoofsiesFoofsies 15:50, September 8, 2010 (UTC)
    • Palpatine also has a deformed appearance; so do many other Human Sith. Darth Bane is 100% Human, period.--ID-21 Dolphin DolphinJedi(Talk) 00:28, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
  • Darth Bane is a HUMAN from Aptros. --Emperordmb 12:05, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

darth banes death Edit

is there going to a book or anything in which darth bane dies?

Shouldn't Darth Bane be listed in the category, Dark Lords of the Sith? 00:56, 19 February 2009 (UTC) gusmahler

Darth bane doesn't die in DoE, that much is for sure. Zannah does though

BANE ISNT DEAD! in the discussion and in the DoE, he is "destroyed" but he completed the trancefur to zannahs body! its so obvious if u read the book. it says that he has a tremor in his LEFT hand!!!!! and at the very end of the book zannah clenches and un-clenches her LEFT hand... der!!!! he did the esence trancfer and his body was destroyed, zannah's mind is gone and bane took over her body. ~Darth Mousenanti

Darth bane does die...the author makes it seem like part of bane is there though...enough to do anything? idk...but zannah is in control as of now,the author explained it. ~DartheBanelives

I wouldnt say dead, just body destroyed...we dont know how much of bane remains he could just come back in another book or something but he most likely wont...i stil wouldntsay he was dead though, not yet, the author put something about him at the end for a reason.~darthbanelives

I'm going to have to ask for some proof that he is dead, as i have looked everywhere, andcan only find that the author has put that he lost the battle of wills, but a portion of bane remains alive. So that means bane could DEFINITELY come back somehow, if they wanted it to happen. i wouldnt say he's dead at all, his body is just destroyed...just like it used to correctly say on his page. i'm not gonna say bane is dead until i am absoultely sure he is. Part of bane lives on!~darthbanelives

gimmie a break chack, its like u dont care bout bane. didnt u read the book?? r u trying to say that the author made a point to put in that "zannahs" hand twiched if he wasnt alive?!?! Darth Mousenanti 00:51, January 26, 2010 (UTC)Darth Mousenanti

If Chack doesn't care about Bane it's probably because he's a fictional character and doesn't actually exist. A fact which you seem unable to appreciate. Drew (the author of the books) has said that Darth Bane is dead, ergo he is. However, he imprinted part of his personality on to Zannah before he died, which is why her hand was twitching at the end of the book. Jayden Matthews 08:41, January 26, 2010 (UTC) He actually doesn't say its his personality at all, he even leaves it open as to whether bane is alive in some way or not...its not set on stone at allll. ~darthbanelives

5.3 Factual correction Edit

In Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, it describes Dessel's eyes as being blue. That should probably be added to the eye description. --Jkrewtman 06:11, 24 February 2009 (UTC) But his eyes are yellow-red in the main image. So, his eyes aren't blue. WILDEYE N-25 02:15, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

While the cover image of Darth Bane shows him with Sith eyes (yellow), the actual text states that his eyes are blue. I think the author's texts are more accurate than an artist's illustration. Plus, if you bring up Darth Vader's profile it also states blue eyes along with the yellow sith eyes. Just thinking Wookieepedia should have some continuity. Jkrewtman 17:34, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

I fixed the entry of Darth Banes eyes, i checked in the books and it definatly says blue. mattjohns 8:22, 14, May 2014 (UTC)

Bane is the Sith'ari Edit

Should this perhaps be mentioned in the opening paragraph, somewhere? (It was recently confirmed by the CSWE)( Uli Talk 21:23, 18 April 2009 (UTC))

No Darth Bane/Darth Rivan contradiction Edit

First let me say that everything I am about to state can be found on Wookieepedia. Now, in Darth Rivan's page on this site it states that he got his Sith name from a corrupted Sith manuscript which identified Darth Revan, the Dark Lord of the Sith who was redeemed during the Jedi Civil War, as "Rivan." So, this implies the Rivan was a fan of Revan and most likely but not confirmed copied him in at lest some way. Darth Bane came up with the idea for the Rule of Two after studying Darth Revan's holocron. So, we can conclude that despite the fact that Darth Rivan predated Darth Bane it is possible that Darth Rivan's fortress had a trap that adherence to the one master/one apprentice rule that Revan (who predates them both) first instituted and the Darth Bane adapted. --JMasterWor 20:00, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Also, Darth Bane may have "authored" the Rule of Two but it was not his idea. He was told by Darth Revan's holocron about the Rule of Two.

"The strong must be careful lest they be overwhelmed by the ambitions of those working beneath them in concert. Any master who instructs more than one apprentice in the ways of the dark side is a fool. In time, the apprentices will unite their strengths and overthrow the master. It is inevitable; axiomatic. That is why each master must have only one student.

This is also the reason there can only be one Dark Lord. The Sith must be ruled by a single leader: the very embodiment of the strength and power of the dark side. If the leader grows weak another must rise to seize the mantle. The strong rule; the weak are meant to serve. This is the way it must be.

My time here is ended. Take what I have taught you and use it well."

Darth Bane decided to bring back the idea of the Rule of Two but did not originally come up with it. --s1th 21:30, 4 Sept 2009 (UTC)

Darth Revan only came up with the one master, one apprentice part but he only followed that to a degree. He had many Sith through out his fleet and he had the Sith Academy on Korriban full of potential Sith. Where Darth Bane's Rule of Two was one master, one apprentice period, no other Sith were to exist. Darth Rivan just used the one master, one apprentice idea that Revan had and used it in his fortress. --JMasterWor 14:26, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Revan didn't fulfill his beliefs. Bane took the initiative to destroy and rebuild the sith order on this idea.

  • The Rule of Two, from Bane, is that there will only ever be 2 Sith. Revan's vision is different in that there are 1 Dark Lord, 1 apprentice, and then hundreds of force users who are trained in the Force/Sith arts. So he took Revan's idea of 1 apprentice per master, and 1 absolute leader, and combined it all in to 2 Sith period. Very much different.--Jxspyder 19:21, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

first part Edit

Actually the last portion of the opening portion in the feature article darth bane is false it is not possible for him to have to wait a millenia for the sith to re-emerge because in the second book of darth bane The Rule of two chancellor valorum makes an apearance although not as the prsent chancellor

The book is set 1000 years before the Battle of Yavin. The Chancelor Valorum in the Rule of Two is Tarsus Valorum, an ancestor of Finis Valorum, the Supreme Chancelor from Episode 1. So yes he would have to wait a millenia for the Sith to re-emerge.--Mithraw7 09:40, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

new picture Edit

that is a horrible main picture, so i'm changing it back whether you like it or not. --Vandar Tokare42 06:14, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Someone seems to place an unwarranted amount importance on themselves. It's obvious that your opinion conflicts with others. I suggest that before you go around changing things because you don't like them, you discuss it first. Changing it back due to reasons being childish and unprofessional. If you wish to discuss it further, I highly suggest you be more negotiable. --RedemptionRedemptionusersymbol(Talk) 06:20, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
  • I'm in favor of keeping this pic as the main one if it's up for discussion.--Black Jack Scarron 23:02, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
  • I liked the original picture better than the new one. Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).
  • It was changed because the Chris Trevas image from The Essential Atlas is very high quality. And it was changed with the full approval of the individual who nominated it for FA way back when. - JMAS Hey, it's me! 23:10, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
  • The new image is awesome. Drewton Era-old (Drewton's Holocron) 23:43, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
  • That's probably the most detailed picture of Bane i've ever seen. I say it should remain the main picture 20:40, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
  • I think the picture should be kept. Wormulon 21:18, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
  • yeah, i've warmed to the image now. i like it. --Vandar Tokare42 23:14, September 4, 2009 (UTC)

Violet blade Edit

Hi. I just read both Banes novels (third time i have to admit) and i have a question. I am cofused by the violet colour of his lightsaber as it is on the picture of one issue of Jedi vs.Sith and Bane of the Sith and the violet saber, he has in his legacy series toy. In both books there is said that he had crimson blade and only crimson blade there is no mention of violet. Only thing that i know of is the cristal Qordis gave to Bane. Was this cristal the one, giving the blade violet colour? If so there should be some mention about it in the books but there is none. Also according to above mentioned pictures, Bane must has had the violet colour in the seventh battle of Ruusan and on Dxun but in the novels there is clearly described the colour as crimson. Is it some kind of contradiction or ani missing something?--ScorpiO 22:02, September 8, 2009 (UTC)

  • What we have here is an example of the powers-that-be mucking up canon for no good reason. Bane's saber was supposed to be purple, but due to the prevalent fetishism of giving every bad guy a red lightsaber they changed it all around. Man, the EU's turned to complete poodoo. 20:00, September 16, 2009 (UTC)

question Edit

Bane posessed unique force abilities and and an affinity for lightsaber combat and well as hand to hand combat he in short was a great and powerful sith. Darth Sidious also had unique abilities such as battle meditation and was also skilled with a lightsaber and was considered the greatest Sith Lord of all time if the two were to clash what would be the outcome? I strongly Favor Bane but Sideous surprised many people time and time again. I wish to here another persons opinion on this situation. perhaps someone more knowledgeable than me. --Jedihistorian1923 22:42, November 7, 2009 (UTC)


So, for anyone who has read DoE, did Bane or Zannah win? Obviously the book was written deliberately vague, but what do you think is the outcome? Personally, I think Zannah won, but I'd like to get an answer from Chee about this (I may post this in hopes of an answer in the holocron forum). Chack Jadson (Talk) 01:21, December 11, 2009 (UTC)

  • Yeah, I hope Zannah won too. I will be really angry if Bane won. I mean, he was a great anti-hero, but I feel like his story should be over.
    • So it looks like the Author has straight up announced that Zannah won that battle and that Bane has in fact died. Here is a link: Kieren Horn
      • Thanks for the link! I did think he left it deliberately ambiguous, but this settles it in my mind. --Mayhemm 07:04, January 31, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah but in the third book the author says that zannah was clenching and unclenching her hand like Bane did earlier in the book

Essence Transfer Edit

What is the possibility that Bane, learning of essence transfer, has somehow maintained a role as either master or apprentice? Possibly could explain how Darth Plagueis had such a vast knowledge of the force. I know its all speculation, just a thought.

  • You mean Bane is Plagueis? I doubt it. Anyway, there's no canonical answer as to whether he survived past 980 BBY. Chack Jadson (Talk) 21:58, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
  • I know there is no canonical answer but Sidious does say in RotS that only one has mastered the ability to live forever and Im just saying, IF Bane did in fact win the battle of wills with Zannah then....? Darth jerpus 23:07, December 14, 2009 (UTC)Jerpus
  • Awesome, Thanks for the info.Darth jerpus 08:37, December 15, 2009 (UTC)
    • Drew has confirmed that Zannah won the battle and is now the Dark Lord of the Sith, but that a tiny piece of Bane's soul continues to live inside her. He stole the idea from Harry Potter. Jayden Matthews 08:47, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

I think that someone needs to update Banes powers and abilities with essence transfer and death field, and also note how strong his willpower was, even if he did lose to Zannah.

Darth Cognus could sense Bane was still there after the battle, which if he lost his soul would have been obliterated. And you can't prove that's his actual homepage. I could put together a better one in five minutes.

How could Darth Bane leave an imprint? It stated specifically that if he lost the battle of wills his soul would be lost to the void. This makes the assumption that part of him imprinted seem ridiculous and that there could only be one survivor. Following the fact that "Zannah's" hand twitched and that he could not have imprinted it would only make sense that Darth Bane lived on though did not reveal his sucess in the battle of wills? Any flaws in this that im missing? -HSmith

The transfer in DoE Edit

I'm thinking it might have been possible albeit unlikely, that Bane transferred into the Huntress instead. Granted Zannah's arm was trembling, but perhaps during the transfer Bane switched. It never specifically stated from the Holocron that it needed to be a physical connection to complete the transfer...

just a thought! 05:35, January 24, 2010 (UTC)Thrymm dude that makes no sense bane clearly was in zannahs body for a minute it stated taht. and cognus clearly thought bane took over zannah so how would she be bane?~darthbanelives

Drew has confirmed that Bane is dead. Jayden Matthews 09:15, January 24, 2010 (UTC)

he hasn't reallybeen confirmed dead, drew said he was either alive or part of him had been imprinted.~darthbanelives

  • From Drew's post: "…some readers are still confused, and I feel I owe it to them to provide that closure (even though I know some of them will be angry at me for killing off their personal favorite)." "…when Zannah proclaims “Darth Bane is gone. I am Darth Zannah, Dark Lord of the Sith and your new Master,” I thought it would be pretty clear." "I never wanted people to assume Bane had taken over Zannah’s body successfully." For the last time, Bane is dead. Jonjedigrandmaster (Jedi Beacon) 15:21, January 24, 2010 (UTc)

from the same post "The whole thing with Zannah’s hand twitching was only to show that some part of Bane had passed through to her. How much – was he still “alive” in some way, or is it just a small part of his identity imprinted on her – was supposed to be the ambiguous part. But I never wanted people to assume Bane had taken over Zannah’s body successfully." "So, there it is. Zannah won – Bane tried to possess her and failed. But he wasn’t *completely* destroyed… though how much of him remains is something I’m going to leave open for now." For the last time, bane isn't completely gone...hate to break it to the people who want him to be but he's not until drew says further.

  • Enough. This talk page is not a forum where you can add your speculation. The facts of the matter are as followed: Darth Zannah won, and Darth Bane is dead. Drew made it pretty clear that while a remnant of Bane was left, Bane himself was dead and gone. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research (Comlink) 18:38, January 24, 2010 (UTC)

Why should the out-of-work announcements of a tie-in author carry so much canonical weight? He's not Leland Chee. He's not George Lucas. Drew Karpshyn's contributions to canon are the words on the page, not announcements on his website. In my opinion, relying on this author as proof that Bane is either dead or alive is irresponsible. Give us words from the book or words authorized by LFL, if you please, not third party websites for an author to interact with his fans. Would we edit Jar Jar's entry to say that character was a droid if Ahmed Best for some reason made such a claim in an interview? Of course not. Save that stuff for the behind the scenes section. (MacW~ 2/13/2010)

  • The difference is that DREW WROTE THE BOOK. Ahmad Best just acted as Jar Jar, he didn't write Jar Jar's part or decide what happened to him, whereas Drew did write Bane's part, and he did decide what happened to Bane. And if he intended for it to be one way, that's how it canonically took place, unless some retcon is later made. Also, please see Grand Moff Tranner's above note, and don't forget to sign your posts with four tildes, like this: ~~~~. Jonjedigrandmaster (Jedi Beacon) 01:04, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
  • Thank you for that but it is irrelevant. Karpshyn's blog is not an official LFL source. Only the book itself is. There's no particular reason to care what he later claims he intended except as a behind the scenes matter. For example, if Karpshyn writes in his blog tomorrow that Bane still had the orbalisks in Dynasty of Evil that would mean absolutely nothing as a matter of canon because the text itself states the orbalisk armor is long gone. (And incidentally, saying the authors "decide" what happens is stretching things a lot since they are ultimately delivering on LFL-mandated events.) If LFL wants to put out an official statement on the extent to which Bane imprinted on Zannah or failed to do so, great. As it stands however, all we have are non-canonical statements on a private blog and and an in-universe statement by whoever's in Zannah's body, which isn't necessarily true because characters sometimes lie even when they're not Sith Lords. Regardless of whether Bane's spirit lives on it's still appropriate to say Bane died in 980 BBY by the same token we list multiple deaths for Palpatine. I'm just saying it's irresponsible to state as fact who won that battle of wills. Better to adopt a "just the facts" description of the outcome as observed by Cognus until such time as the matter is clarified in an Essential Guide or subsequent books.-- 03:08, February 14, 2010 (UTC)MacW
    • Did you even read the quotes that Jonjedigrandmaster provided from Karpyshyn's blog? Karpyshyn wrote Dynasty of Evil - and in that book, he made it clear that Bane is gone. However, he felt the need to explain it further only when uncertainty arose - uncertainty that was not present when he finished writing the book. His blog doesn't have to be canon for him to explain that. Therefore, there is no issue, nor is there really any need for this conversation to continue. If you choose to continue this debate, you'll only succeed in creating further disruption without anything actually changing. I respectfully ask you to drop this, leave it behind you, and focus on contributing to the site. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research (Comlink) 04:03, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
      • I respectfully counter that there is absolutely an issue. That's why people have been discussing this! The book is not "clear" Bane is gone. The book has a character claim Bane is gone. That doesn't prove anything. To illustrate, ANH has a character claim Darth Vader killed Anakin Skywalker. Please stop trying to silence an opposing viewpoint. And yes, I am familiar with Karpshyn's note, read it long before I entered this talk page. It still doesn't matter. It's not an authoritative LFL source, period. No amount of silencing will make it an authoritative LFL source. And sourcing is important, and it's poor practice to handwave this away just because we are virtually certain an official clarification (in the form of either future books involving the Banite Sith or an Encyclopedia or Essential Guide) in line with Karpshyn's blog post is forthcoming. It's still speculation on our part until it's official, and this is not the fanon wiki. So my contribution, whether you agree or not, is speaking in favor of the best practices. Wookieepedia should maintain its high standards.-- 06:24, February 14, 2010 (UTC)MacW

I'd just like to say that I don't think he's dead. Cognus could sense that he was in Zannah's body, and Zannah's hand now had Darth Bane's trait of clenching of the left fist.

Correct lightsaber hilt? Edit

I haven't read the novels in awhile, but I could have sworn Bane carried a curved hilt, unlike the one shown in the article. Did I misread? Didn't the Jedi (Farfalla and friends) make a point of identifying his style by his hilt, shortly before they died? Maybe I missed something; someone tell me!--Anonyhm 22:48, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

  • Every source says his hilt is "hooked" or curved, but every picture shows a standard hilt.--Black Jack Scarron 09:21, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
    • The way this works out in canon (assuming all sources are at the same level), is that it is indeed curved, but it just so happens that "curved" in this sense, in the GFFA, means what we earthlings call "straight." This is clearly the best way of reconciling sources per canon policy Or else drawings and comics are just artistic license, just like Bane's chine probably isn't the exact same shape it's presented as in Jedi vs. Sith. One or the other.l -- 17:15, April 12, 2010 (UTC)l
    • I guess either that, or the angle is such that it's straight. at the right angle, any curve is straight if its curve only one direction. hmmmm.... just seems like a weak explanation.--Anonyhm 02:07, April 13, 2010 (UTC)
      • I'm pretty sure it's a continuity error, not "straight" having a different meaning in SW. Chack Jadson (Talk) 20:22, April 13, 2010 (UTC)
  • That's right, continuity errors. Because in the novels everyone who comes near the hilt always take notice at it's "hook" shape. When Bane first holds it he has to get used to the new shape.--Black Jack Scarron 00:24, April 29, 2010 (UTC)

darth zannah Edit

will there be a series about darth zannah. I mean we all kind of like her and its sad Bane is dead but the series seems unended to me Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

  • We don't know. However, I'd say it's pretty unlikely. Chack Jadson (Talk) 18:48, June 16, 2010 (UTC)
  • I doubt it. Most likely we'll get some small source material regarding her and Cgnus, but otherwise, there are no plans for a series about her.--ID-21 Dolphin DolphinJedi(Talk) 00:30, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

just wondering Edit

you think on banes page, you could change that picture of banes lightsaber to a curved one?

  • We don't have a good image of his curved saber, AFAIK. Chack Jadson (Talk) 22:13, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
    • Then perhaps we should take the image down entirely. Us not having a good image of the correct lightsaber isn't a very good reason to have a different lightsaber depicted as being his.Darth Adonis 09:02, August 31, 2010 (UTC)
      • Bane's lightsaber is one of those contentious issues. Because the comics all show him with tha straight lightsaber, I don't see a problem with that picture.--ID-21 Dolphin DolphinJedi(Talk) 00:29, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
        • How is it contentious though? Sith vs. Jedi came out in '01. Path of Destruction came out in '06. Wouldn't that just make it a retcon?--Jxspyder 19:12, October 2, 2010 (UTC)
          • I agree I believe that the comics are wrong. It clearly states in the book that he has a curved lightsaber the book even reads," had an interesting curve to it..." And the comic has not the slightest curve. That is not right and I think it should be fixed. Nathan Davis a.k.a Darth Demetri(UTC) 18:19, November 18, 2014 (UTC)

Grammar Problems in the Force Powers Section Edit

"He was also sense poisons in himself and often cure himself by purging the toxins from his body." I can't edit this since the page is locked, but someone who is able to should probably add "able to" right before the word sense to make the sentence grammatically correct. ---Scarbrought93 00:12, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

When did Darovit become Caleb's assistant instead of Darth Zannah's cousin? 20:51, November 18, 2012 (UTC)Darth Biwin


Actually there is no proof that Darth Bane was killed on Ambria by Darth Zannah. The series. One can neither confirm nor deny whether or not he was killed or not. There is not enough proof to prove his death or his continued existence. (Darth Cerebrus)

  • There is proof; the author himself said that Zannah won. Cade StupidRepublicEmblem-Traced-TORkit Calrayn 22:46, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

-Here is some quotes directly from the author that prove Zannah won: "I’ll be honest; I thought it was pretty clear in my writing. I wrote the scene from Cognus’s point of view to keep you guessing to the last instant, but when Zannah proclaims “Darth Bane is gone. I am Darth Zannah, Dark Lord of the Sith and your new Master,” I thought it would be pretty clear.

The whole thing with Zannah’s hand twitching was only to show that some part of Bane had passed through to her. How much – was he still “alive” in some way, or is it just a small part of his identity imprinted on her – was supposed to be the ambiguous part. But I never wanted people to assume Bane had taken over Zannah’s body successfully."--Vulcan64 (talk) 06:39, March 10, 2014 (UTC)Vulcan64

What happened to a specific picture? Edit

Ok so at one time there was a cannon picture of Darth Bane in his obalisk armor talking to Darth Krayt. What happened to it? I think that it should still be in this article as it is one of the few pictures of him in that armor plus it shows off Bane's holocron.--Vulcan64 (talk) 06:33, March 10, 2014 (UTC)Vulcan64

please, take this photo out and let the old one back, have good sense I beg

  • The "good sense" is that Lucasfilm has declared this is his new canonical appearance. It takes priority. --Geekius Maximus (talk) 22:22, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

Clone Wars GhostEdit

While I'm aware of the information given by the episode entry, I was just wonder if it's possible that the apparition of Darth Bane in the episode "Sacrifice" may be the canonical appearance of him from the time when he was rid of the obalisks between the 2nd and 3rd book of the Darth Bane trilogy? If so, that would still allow his past appearances to be accepted. Just my personal thought and opinion.--Professor Ambrius (talk) 05:56, March 19, 2014 (UTC)

  • He looks more like a weird Samurai to me. I sure as hell hope they don't ruin it more by saying that was his true form. Anyway, talk pages are not to share opinions about the characters but actually about discussing the respective article's content. So lets both step back and await for any confirmation or not. Winterz (talk) 02:16, April 3, 2014 (UTC)

Link? Edit

Is there any reason that the Bane's Hearts link in the legacy section leads to a disambiguation page instead of the article on the crystal? the crystal is the object that is referred to in the article. Milo49 (talk) 01:37, April 17, 2014 (UTC)

  • I changed the link direct, if that's okay. Milo49 (talk) 01:58, April 17, 2014 (UTC)
