Bane was never a member of the Brotherhood. He renounced it and took up the Darth mantle. --Danik Kreldin 04:59, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
- Yes he was a member of the Brotherhood. QuentinGeorge 05:13, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
- Actually Darth Bane wasn't a true member of the dark botherhood because he never actually agreed to being part of the order. This is my reasoning Qordis and the rest of the botherhood said he was a member but when he was told he stood up to Qordis and then stole his ship and left. Then when he came back to Ruusan he didn't even do anything to help them he led them into a trap and then caused them to go and destroy themsevles with the thought bomb. I don't think he is qualified to be part of the Botherhood of darkness. Darth Nezzera(In umbris potestas est) 02:23, 19 March 2008 (UTC)
Objectiveness of quotes...[edit source]
Is it a truism among the Star Wars Universe (more specifically, among the Sith) that the Brotherhood of Darkness/Rule by the Strong was a flawed ideology of former Sith, and should thus be treated with disdain? For fans, it seems more to me that it's a matter of opinion, whereas most canon literature and other sources always reference this ideology as flawed and problematic. There are many powerful characters, though, who are in favor of this Rule and against the Rule of Two. I'm just wondering where all this fits in with the quotes on this page; the opening quote is very much against the Brotherhood, and more or less sets the tone of what the reader should expect from the article. However, the practice of this Rule, arguably, often times had it's success. It seems to me that the opening quote to this article should be something more objective and unbiased, so as not to immediately write it off as totally and impossibly broken.
If you go look at the Jedi page, the opening quote showcases the Jedi in a positive light. I just finished reading The Rise of Darth Vader (a decent enough book...), so I'll use it as an example: you wouldn't expect the quote on the Jedi page to read "Anakin's defection to the Sith had been essential to bringing peace to the galaxy! Essential to placing power in the hands of those resourceful enough to use it properly ... to dissolve the bloated, entitled Jedi order, whose Masters were blind to the decay they had fostered." There are better quotes, obviously, but this one was fresh on my mind. It's a widely-held belief among many many people (in-universe and out) that the Jedi and their Order are also a flawed ideology, but you don't see them reflected in a negative light. I'm curious of what others believe about this. I don't have a better, unbiased quote I'd use at the moment but I'd be happy to locate one. And yes, I understand the difference in significance of the Jedi versus the Brotherhood, please understand it's just an example.--Trajec 00:36, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
