A ruthless bounty hunter from the planet Duro, Cad Bane was the preeminent blaster-for-hire in the galaxy at the time of the Clone Wars. No quarry was too dangerous for Bane... if the price was right. Using an impressive arsenal of weapons and allies, the cold, cruel and calculating Bane would literally track his prey to the ends of the galaxy if required. Bane carried custom twin blaster pistols, gauntlets studded with control devices, a concealed bola, explosives, integrated breathing apparatus and rocket boots, ensuring that he was always well prepared for any situation that may arise.
Fall of the Republic
Cad Bane’s fearsome reputation made him one of the galaxy’s most infamous bounty hunters, but during the Clone Wars he pulled off some truly audacious jobs for Darth Sidious. Bane stole a holocron from the heart of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, battled Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano when they were sent to stop him, and then used the information inside the holocron to kidnap Force-sensitive children for the Sith.
Bane also worked for the Hutts, and showed that no mission too tough for him – provided the price was right. When the Hutts hired him to break Ziro the Hutt out of prison, Bane gathered a rogue’s gallery of bounty hunters and mercenaries and invaded the Senate building, taking several Senators hostage and negotiating with Supreme Chancellor Palpatine for Ziro’s release.
Bane allowed himself to be captured and imprisoned on Coruscant so he could free Moralo Eval, the creator of a fiendish testing ground on Serenno known as the Box. Bane proved himself in the Box and supplanted Eval as the leader of a team of hunters sent to Naboo by Count Dooku to assassinate Palpatine – with a disguised Obi-Wan Kenobi trying desperately to stop him.
