Bane O'Rouge [he/him] is the successor to Johnny from the folk song The Banks of Red Roses. Although Bane has never liked his destiny, he feels it’s best to stay and prevent his curse from hurting other people. Far too nice for a rake but far too determined as a student, Bane’s doing what he can to prove his worth as Johnny without losing himself in the process.
He’s got a love hate relationship with the staff. On the one hand, Bane does well in most of his classes. On the other hand, he’s openly disinterested in becoming a villain.
