Bane stands at about 6'1 and has a somewhat muscular build, which brings his weight to about 240 pounds. Dark brown (perhaps nearly black, in the right light) hair is usually kept short and neat. He has aged more than forty years, yet a rigorous schedule of physical activity keeps him in shape, and he probably doesn't appear to be older than someone in his early 30's. His piercing dark blue eyes are ever observative, and usually seeking the best traits of every individual he encounters.
Bane does actually have some skills, even though they may not be blatantly obvious.
