Arachnos, Alpha Sanction
Operative Bane is always serious and a workaholic, always putting Lord Recluse's business before his own.
Ninja Blade - Bane uses a "phase blade" that utilizes a pocket dimension to summon and dismiss the blade at will. This is controlled by the cybernetic enhancements in his hands.
Ninjitsu - Operative Bane was made to be at peak physical health, focusing more on reflexes and stealth than strength. Though his self-repairing armor provides a certain line of protection, he prefers to not get hit in the first place. The armor also acts as a cloaking device, and coupled with his training, Bane is invisible to most foes.
Super-jump - Bane has learned to scale walls and buildings in record time, using a small jump booster in his boots to help him with the long leaps.
Fitness - He has been trained and enhanced for peak performance and health.
Power Pool 2
Mu Mastery - Bane's blood can be traced back to the ancient Mu. Though he is no mage, with the help of the Arachnos Mu mystics, he has begun to tap into his blood magic.
Weaknesses and Limitations
Operative Bane is very quick to charge into battle, and would rather take out everyone at a location rather than just his target, leaving him out in the open. Also, while he is near untouchable in melee combat, he has less defense at range, and his armor is slow to repair.
No one is sure who Codename Bane was born as, and it is a tightly guarded secret within Arachnos. As Bane remembers it, he was an up and coming Woldspider Huntsman leading a raid against Freedom Corps forces when an explosion took out most of his squad. The shrapnel destroyed both of his lower arms and wounded several internal organs. How he lived to be rescued by a back-up team is a mystery, but because of his steadfast determination to serve Arachnos, Lord Recluse volunteered Bane for an experimental process of biological, cybernetic, and chemical enhancement. It was a project to develop a new type of Bane Spider, one that was separated from the Bane Spider mind so it could work as a stand-alone agent. When the Huntsman awoke from this process, he remembered nothing of his previous life, save the last mission that destroyed him. In his mind, he knew only Arachnos and to serve Lord Recluse beyond the petty squabbles of the patrons.
Currently Operative Bane is the Field Commander of the Arachnos covert-ops team, Alpha Sanction. Publicly, Alpha Sanction is nothing more than a security team for the Rogue Isles. Also, Bane is in an awkward but intriguing relationship with the Paragon City hero, Miss Danger.
