Rank: Bounty Hunter
Tier: Low 1
Background: Cad Bane was a Duros male bounty hunter and mercenary in the galaxy whose career spanned from the fall of the Galactic Republic, the reign of the Galactic Empire and into the era of the New Republic. After the unceremonious demise of Jango Fett at the First Battle of Geonosis in 22 BBY, Bane was considered the best and one of the most experienced bounty hunters of the era. Although his infamy grew during the Clone Wars in particular, Bane had a high standing both within the underworld and amongst other bounty hunters, working with the likes of Aurra Sing years before the onset of the war.
He specialized in fighting Jedi and duelled with some of the most skilled Jedi during the Clone Wars, including Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. His reputation led him to be repeatedly employed by the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, working for him on numerous projects, including infiltrating the Jedi Temple to steal a kyber memory crystal containing a list of Force-sensitive children throughout the galaxy.
After the return of Jango, Cad Bane found himself at odds for the title of the greatest mercenary. But it doesn't matter whether he is first or second, because to Cad Bane, strength doesn't matter compared to a bag full of credits.

Weaknesses: Not athletically powerful, Cad Bane relies on equipment, wit and brains. Getting the jump on him at close quarters could allow one to easily dispatch of him. While his mind is resistant to probing up to a High 0, multiple Force Users together could breach his mind. An EMP to short circuit his equipment would severely reduce his lethality. Cad Bane works for the highest bidder, and outbidding his contractor will easily sway him to your cause. Smart, ruthless and morally bankrupt; there is little use in trying to trick or compromise him emotionally.
