Highest probability would be the outskirts, between missions.
== Physical Description ==
Standing 6 foot 2 inches at 240lbs, Bane has the physique of a hard hitting linebacker, along with the same deceptive quickness and agility that would belong on a professional football team. To see him would invoke the terms "brute" and "goon" to those who have not had the fortune (or misfortune) to see him in action. His natural body stance gives off the impression of relaxed control and comfort with command, however, those who were truly perceptive could see the constant pain coursing through him under years of tempered patience.
== Persona ==
Devout, yet free thinking, Bane has accepted the philosophy of Ra's Al Ghul as a means to building his own path within the League of Shadows. He believes that while Ra's strategy and tactics are exemplary, his application of force leaves much to be desired. He is the butcher to Ra's surgeon. Both would believe that the limb should go, though Bane is less caring of the scarring that would occur from its removal.
His education, though undocumented, would be college level. A collection of prisoners to were used to gain valuable experiences and limited linguistic aptitude, namely in Spanish, with some passing Chinese (Mandarin) and Japanese.
Having given himself to the cause, his ideas of want and need are tuned only to the mission. Where this can become problematic depends on what he believes his mission to be at that period of time...

High Pain Threshold
Obscurity on an international level
-Known only as Bane
-The prison's records of him were destroyed
-Mask hides most of his face
-No need to acquire an alter ego
== Disadvantages ==
Constant pain (Mask decreases the amount, but does not eliminate it)
Sometimes too direct - Believes that the quickest way to conflict resolution is to resolve the person with the conflict. This can make him a "Bull in a China shop" at times.
Zealot - His belief, though pure, can be blinding. This can, at times, limit his objectivity and adaptive qualities in an effort to force the issue (square peg in a round hole)
== Background ==
Born in a pit of a prison meant for those society would rather forget, Bane was raised by his mother, who survived off the winning the favor of whoever happened to be in power. It was that power that protected them both, until a struggle for the prison's throne resulted in her death. Left alone, Bane survived off of scraps...and hate. Rather than consume him, the hate instead hardened his heart and sharpened his instincts. It was hate that first drove him to survive, until he found his goal. In that goal he found his certainty, his resolve. That resolve left him soaked in a man's blood. He left that blood on for a week as a reminder to the rest of the prison.
Years passed and the bodies piled up. Alliances made, but never friendships. Deals forged, but always broken. The throne, that top spot, still beckoned. A lifetime of pain was the price of its purchase, and he paid it gladly. It was then, while just beginning to reap the benefits of his years of work, that he was approached by the League. They presented him with something more than a throne. They gave him reason. A prison so corrupt as to allow a child to grow within its walls, so vile as to force its sole woman occupant to rely on her body to keep the rest of the wolves at bay. He was a son of that cesspool, and as such deserved to be the one to put it to the torch.
Some nights he could still hear the screams of the dying while he escaped.
That show of deliberate planning and ferocity was his ticket into the League. There his true resolve was tested. His mind, body, and soul brought to a melting point and molded to the League's expectations.
