Born in 2247, Bannon is a snappy dresser and a shrewd businessman. His wares are high priced, because he's got no competition. His motto is "If you don't like the pants, go find them yourself." Cindy Cantelli has a crush on him and sits with him in church. She also leaves when he does. Bannon is one of three city council members, along with Doctor Li and Harkness. They meet on Monday mornings for a few hours to discuss city-wide issues. He has quite the ego, but was chosen by Doctor Li to sit on the city council. She seems oblivious to his flaws.
Bannon has two shop inventories. One is his normal full inventory which includes his wares on display in the Rivet City Market. The other is a more limited inventory which is only available from 7:00AM while he is en-route to the marketplace.
It is hinted at by Doctor Preston that Bannon has a sexually transmitted disease when viewing his patient file.
