Cad Bane was a male Duros from the planet of Duro with a reputation as the galaxy's best and deadliest bounty hunter during the Clone Wars. Though he worked for a number of clients, his loyalty was ultimately to credits—and by extension, the highest bidder to offer them. Bane employed a variety of weapons and allies to insure that he always got his pay, becoming the leader in his line of work after fellow mercenary Jango Fett perished in the opening battle of the war. In 22 BBY, Bane was hired by the Dark Lord Darth Sidious to capture Jedi Master Ring-Sol Ambase on the planet Kynachi, an operation that the bounty hunter successfully completed. The Duros also hijacked a dangerous weapon from the Skakoan assassin Kul Teska on Alzoc III.
