Abstract: Darth Bane: The Monomyth's Dark Liberator is an original thesis based on Joseph Campbell's theory of the monomyth and Drew Karpyshyn's Darth Bane Trilogy. Campbell's theory of the monomyth has most commonly been called the hero's journey. For many years the archetypal hero has been thought to be the only character that met the requirements of Campbell's theory. However through Karpyshyn's trilogy of novels about the Sith Lord Darth Bane Bane illustrates what the epitome of an antihero is and also that he can make the monomyth his own. The antihero is one of the most fascinating character types in literature and through Bane's complicated journey as an antihero he proves that he embodies all of the qualifications set down by Campbell's theory and experiences a monomythic adventure.
