"Ah, the day is yet young, my doubting friend! Beware a man who wears only one shoe!"
The Story So Far...
Bane is spending his days as a subway busker when Jill and Amber come across him and, impressed by his skill, recruit him to be their band's drummer so they can enter the Catband battle of the bands competition. At this point Bane is homeless and trying to put his past behind him, so he is very eager to grasp this opportunity to possibly achieve something.
He loves his new friends and he wants so badly to do right by them, but life in a band offers so many distractions...
Bane is a kid who has Made Some Mistakes in his young life-- he earned that nickname-- but now he's eager to prove himself. He's impulsive, has poor judgment, trusts probably the wrong people, and puts himself in bad situations without thinking it through first. He doesn't want to be a screwup anymore, so he's constantly trying to avoid screwing up, which, of course, leads him to screw up.
He never forgets what anyone does for him and will defend his friends to the end of the earth, which makes him far too eager to take it outside and much too likely to get his ass handed to him in a fight, but he would do it again for any of his friends in a moment. He's forgiving, as he knows everyone makes mistakes, but wary and skeptical and afraid of falling back into his old life.
Overall, he's loyal, fierce, and wild-- and unintentionally dramatic-- and he's trying so hard.
Bane once drove a friend to the hospital who had overdosed.
He spent the night in a tree once trying to avoid a police search.
|Height: 6'0"/183cm||Build: Skinny|
|Eyes: Blue||Hair: Dyed blue (from blond), straight|
|Handedness: Right||Style: Whatever's available|
Bane is skinny and always at least a little banged-up looking. He has a cauliflower ear (his left), blue eyes, and roughly-cut bright blue hair Luke talked him into.
For clothes, everything (the little he has) is too big and kind of shabby, but he's usually wearing a denim jacket and green sneakers. His favorite shirt is one for his friend's band, Poultrygeist.
His arms are usually covered, but if they're not, you'll see that he has a number of bad tattoos.
Bane tends to wax poetic-- as in actually make up poetry-- when he's nervous, which is often. He's a high school dropout, but he liked English class, and he's interested in Greek myths. He's liable to use them in analogies, whether he remembers them right or not.
He is very afraid of bugs, especially beetles or anything with pincers, and he is not ashamed to make one of the girls deal with a scary bug while he hides.
He's a Red Sox fan but he hasn't actually had a chance to watch a game in a while.
He has a skateboard... sometimes. Where did he leave it, again?
He loves Star Wars and has a Mandalorian skull (seen on Boba Fett's armor) sticker on the side of his bass drum.
Bane is an intense drummer, like Steve Moore, the drummer at the wrong gig, or Sebastien Schultz (formerly of Bad Veins). Even when he's not drumming, he's animated, and gesticulates wildly. He's fidgety, jumpy, and paces a lot. He's often holding a pair of drumsticks and messing around with them, or tapping his thighs or other surfaces when he isn't.
He sings or talks to himself when he's nervous but should definitely not be allowed near a microphone.
At the start of the comic, he's busking in the subway for cash, either with his "Frankenstein's kit" or with buckets. He can't seem to hold onto equipment, so his drumkit is in a shambles and the pieces of it are constantly changing.
He loves Irish punk bands like Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, as well as metal and punk in general.
He thinks "Sk8er Boi" is catchy.
Jill, Amber, and Mitzy are the other members of his band, Hedgemaze Expo. He and Mitzy might not be the best influence on each other, but they've become good friends.
Amber and Jill are, along with Mitzy, the other members of his band. He's grateful to them for taking a chance on him.
Jill and Amber are, along with Mitzy, the other members of his band. He and Amber get along particularly well.
Kaji Father Figure / Housemate
Bane lives in an artist's squat with Kaji, CHIEF (Luke), Lance, and Heto. Kaji helped Bane a lot when he first came to the squat, and has become protective of Bane in a sort of fatherly way. Bane tries to make him proud-- or at least not ashamed.
Luke is one of the other members of the artist's squat, and along with Kaji he's the other "leader" there-- although Luke's idea of keeping order is a lot more chaotic. He and Bane are friends, even if his schemes sometimes make Bane nervous.
Lance is another member of the artist's squat. He and Bane get along as friends.
Heto is the youngest member of the squat, younger than Bane by only a year, and they share a lot in common, although their paths have somewhat diverged since coming to New York.
Thomas is a good friend of Bane's, and he and his wife let Bane come over to their apartment for a shower and a hot meal when he needs one.
|Pet's Name: French Fry||Species: Dog|
|Sex: Male||Breed: Terrier mix|
French Fry is a dog Bane "owns", though it's probably more accurate to say that the two are just a couple of strays who pal around together. French Fry follows Bane around and sits with him when he busks, and he likes to hang around with Lance when he works in the squat's garden. You could say he's the squat's guard dog, but he's too quiet and friendly for that, probably.
French Fry is a rough-and-tumble terrier mutt with scruffy, curly tan fur, and three legs (he's missing the left rear one).
