Like most of Malak's followers, Bandon was once a student of the Sith. But though the Force flowed through him, Bandon could never accept the Sith teachings. Powerful emotions like love and peace lingered within him, and they fueled his will. When the Jedi lost power, Bandon rejected his old Master and fled to the Jedi Academy.
There he embraced the light side and the way of the Jedi with every fiber of his being. His great strength in the Force, his natural talent and skill powered his quest for peace soon set him apart from his fellow students, and drew the calculating eye of the Sith.
In the tradition of their order, the Jedi sought a single pupil from among the students to become their chosen padawan: one who could learn the ancient secrets of the Jedi and use them to extinguish the Sith and the evil in the galaxy.
So far, Bandon has proven himself to be an excellent choice. Many Sith have been defeated beneath the blade of his lightsaber, and he has yet to meet his equal in combat. In time, Bandon may even challenge Malak for the peace of the galaxy, for this is the way of the Jedi: When the evil is extinguished, the light shall show the sinner the path to the truth.
But such ambitions are for the future. For now, Bandon is focused on the battle against the Sith and the extinction of evil in all things.
You will first encounter Darth Bandon on the Endar Spire, where Trask Ulgo confronts him. Bandon posseses Trask, and then makes Trask say that Bandon is a Sith and he'll hold him off.
Bandon will come to find you on the third planet you arrive at, just before your ship is encountered by the Leviathan, where he'll tell you that you're a Sith and that you must be eriadicated for the good of the galaxy.
