Characters I Hold Dear: The Old Republic: Darth Bane

Star Wars: The Old Republic has grown tremendously over the recent years and we have gotten more novelizations than we ever thought possible. With all of these books we have gotten many characters and the BioWare video game has also added to this number. When the Darth Bane books came out I had to read them because at the time I was trying to read the Star Wars books in order. After reading the first Darth Bane novel I was hooked. The character was dark and so passionate. I love dark characters and Darth Bane was the epitomy of dark.

In addition he was not just some dumb bad guy he was a smart, cunning and resourceful bad guy. The stories that enveloped his character over the course of the trilogy were captivating and some of the best Star Wars stories that I have ever read. The Darth Bane books were great in introducing us to one of the most solidly evil Sith that have ever been but they also gave us a great look at the back story of the Sith which I rather enjoyed. I have to thank Drew Karpyshyn for creating Bane and for sharing him with all of us.
