Lawful Evil God of War & Conquest
Bane the God of War, is a cunning and merciless tactician. Though he is tyrannical and cruel he is also a beacon of law, civilization and the triumph of mortals over the wild. Bane is different from other evil gods because unlike them, he believes what he does is for the good of all. Even if they can’t see it themselves. It is said during the Dawn War that the Black Hand had assumed control of all the gods, as the general of Heaven. Getting them to work in concert with each other, a feat that has never occurred since. Part of the iron general’s bitterness stems from the fact that he believed he would continue to lead a unified pantheon after the dawn war. Though Bane is evil, just like the other gods he receives prayers from everyone when the need is there. Some see the iron general as a stabilizing force against the wilds, not just a conqueror. Many are a soldier who are good offer a prayer to the god of war before battle. After all, you wouldn’t go to sea without a prayer to Melora would you? Bane is also the brother of Tempus.
Bane teaches structure and tactics. He also has a hatred of the Primordials, which he felt was foolish to let them live so they could become a threat later in time.
