Force Accolades:

"His great strength in the Force, his natural cruelty, and his absolute ruthlessness in his quest for power soon set him apart from his fellow students, and drew the calculating eye of Lord Malak himself. In the tradition of their order, Malak sought a single pupil from among his many followers to become his chosen apprentice: one who could learn the terrible secrets of the Sith and use them to destroy the Jedi and the Republic. So far, Darth Bandon has proven himself to be an excellent choice."

―Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Prima Guide

With legions of armored troops spreading throughout the galaxy, all led by masters of the Force, the Sith Empire seems unstoppable."

d20 Character Summary:

"Most Jedi who join the Sith Empire abandon their former Republic allegiance when the Mandalorian Wars conclude, but several traitors flee to the Korriban Sith academy during the Jedi Civil War. Among these turncoats is Darth Bandon.

Bandon chafes under his Jedi Master, who aims to curb his natural anger and hatred. So when a mighty Sith Empire assaults Republic space, Bandon flees the repressive Jedi Order. Unleashing his cruelty within the Sith hierarchy, he immediately sparks interest from Darth Malak. Once Malak controls the Sith Empire, he makes Bandon his Sith apprentice.

The bloodthirsty Darth Bandon wastes no time in building a double-bladed Sith lightsaber resembling that of Exar Kun, using it to impale a score of his former Jedi allies. Growing arrogant, Bandon inevitably sets his sights on Malak's mantle. But when Bandon kills the common Republic soldier Trask Ulgo, who sacrifices himself to save Revan after his Jedi reconditioning, the cocksure Bandon never imagines it will be the death of him. Ulgo's sacrifice allows Revan to escape and start down the path to reclaiming his legacy. As Revan grows more powerful, Darth Malak orders Darth Bandon to seek out and destroy Revan and his companions. With two dark side cronies in tow, Bandon confronts Revan, but is killed by the former Sith lord."
