Kell's all right. Face/Phanan and Wedge/Janson are pretty awesome, but Kell was good for a fair amount of comedy. The psychological issues that he had with combat were pretty well done, too. But what I did notice is that he very quickly dropped off the radar after Wraith Squadron. He was the main PoV character in that book, which was kind of a Kell OD. But after that, he slowly matures into a completely normal, competent professional. He's sort of there in Iron Fist, but in Solo Command he basically just shows up for the Binring mission and then stays in the background the whole time.

That's not an indictment of his character, or anything, far from it. But his lack of visibility in the later books means that he didn't really own any of the really good moments of those books. Phanan's always got his death scene, which is probably the single most powerful thing Allston's written for Star Wars. Face has basically everything starting with Iron Fist. Janson has Kettch and all the shenanigans on Adumar. Gara/Lara/Kirney has her epic breakdown - same with Donos - and then her Iron Fist takedown at Selaggis. Piggy has Mercy Kill. And Wedge, of course, is the God of War. But what do Tyria and Kell have? Well...less.

The only 1 i have to disagree with is Darth Bane i use to think the same think as you but after playing SWTOR and i read the books i started to think about it more and it actually made sense it made the Sith Stronger. It limited all the in fighting among sith to the point where only the strongest would be the master. Even Darth Marr says how all the infighting is weaking the sith but unlike him he didn't do anything or at least yet while Darth Bane ie the Sith'ari did. Like darth bane said b4 the rule of two often times more than 1 apprentice would team to kill the master and a weaker master would take over thus a weaker sith master who didn't deserve the postion was in charge. The rule of Two ensured the strongest sith would be the master ie Darth Bane VS Darth Zannah.

But It do agree it weakened the Sith empire as a whole i could be wrong be it seems to me after the Brotherhood of Darkness was destroyed there wasn't a proper army for the sith empire until Darth Sidious.

Exactly. Exactly. People seem to miss this point all the time. It's a testament to just how effective Karp's storytelling was in the Bane trilogy that he managed to portray the destruction of almost the entire Sith Order as a Good Thing for the Sith.

Objectively speaking, the Sith were infinitely weaker after Bane used the thought bomb than they were before. There was no Sith hierarchy; almost all of the most powerful Sith Lords were killed, and the others that remained in the Brotherhood's other holdings across the galaxy were mopped up by the Republic military in the months after Ruusan. Bane caused the destruction of an empire that spanned half the galaxy in order to increase his own personal power: he was the only Sith Lord left, although he quickly added an apprentice and a small hidden power base. His idea of what a Sith Order would be ended up dominating, not Kaan's.

Now, one might argue that Kaan's empire was doomed before Bane tricked his fellow Sith into detonating the thought bomb. If that was the case, Bane's actions were necessary to save anything of the Sith Order from the avenging Jedi. The problem is that that's not clear at all. Bane himself helped to sabotage much of Kaan's chance for victory on Ruusan before the thought bomb. Battle is a lottery, and the Ruusan campaign demonstrated just how exhausted the Republic was by its own exertions. Had Bane instead turned his prodigious energies to the destruction of the Republic forces on Ruusan instead of undermining Kaan's war effort, the Brotherhood may very well have had a chance for victory. It would not be a certain victory, and it might not have even been a particularly likely victory, but it would've been a chance, and that was more than what the Brotherhood had with Bane's thought bomb plan.

But the reality of the situation is that Bane refused to countenance anybody else's understanding of the dark side and the Sith Order other than his own. He thought he was the biggest, most kick-butt Sith Lord around, and that serving under anybody else would be an insult to his potential power and authority. And if that power and authority meant handing the Republic and the Jedi a thousand years of unchallenged peace and prosperity on a silver platter, and consigning the Sith to hidden fortresses and backroom plots, then he had to make those things happen. One of the reasons Bane gave for the Brotherhood's weakness was that a collegial network of Sith was doomed to failure; internal conflicts would tear it apart, because, as he argued, no Sith wanted to obey the orders of any other. But ironically, Bane's prophecy was self-fulfilling. Kaan's Brotherhood did die because of internal conflicts among the Sith. The problem is that they were Bane's conflicts with Kaan.

Bane gets historical credit from a lot of fans because the Sith Order he created eventually ended up conquering the galaxy under Palpatine. The problem is that that "eventually" was a thousand years later. And it had very little to do with Bane's Rule of Two and everything to do with the supreme skill of Sith like Plagueis and Sidious. In Darth Plagueis, James Luceno had several of his Sith characters openly mock the Rule of Two. As he had it, few Sith ever ended up following that code: Masters would take extra apprentices, for instance, and set them against each other - or apprentices would take apprentices, sometimes with the full cooperation of their Masters. And at least once, the Rule of Two nearly resulted in the extinction of the Sith Order, when Darth Gravid became "corrupted" by the light side of the Force and destroyed almost all of the remaining Sith lore before being murdered by his apprentice. With the Rule of Two, the Sith became much more vulnerable; the death or defection of either the master or the apprentice would leave the Order in terrible peril. Whereas a Brotherhood such as Kaan's could absorb the death of a single Sith Lord with impunity.

Naturally, the exact same situation had led to the destruction of Palpatine's Empire. Vader betrayed his master and they effectively killed each other, extinguishing the Sith Order. Had they not violated the Rule of Two by creating vast armies of apprentices and adepts and Hands, the Sith would have perished at Endor. Instead, Lumiya, and others like her, were able to pick up the slack and keep the Sith going.

Therefore, as an institution, Bane's Rule of Two deserves a lot less credit than it seems to get. So what does that leave us, in terms of Bane's accomplishments? Other than the Rule of Two, all Bane tangibly accomplished was the destruction of almost all other Sith in the galaxy at Ruusan. That's basically it. And bizarrely, legions of Sith fanboys sing his praises for this achievement.
