|Chronological and political information|
Bowdaar was a male Wookiee slave forced by his masters into becoming a gladiatorial fighter in arenas spanning the galaxy. His prowess as a warrior and undefeated record earned him the names "The Killer from Kashyyyk," "Deathmountain," and "Boneshatterer."
Captured as a child from his homeworld of Kashyyyk, Bowdaar was forced into a life of violence, fighting for survival in gladiator arenas from one side of the galaxy to the other. He proved himself to be a very capable fighter. Over more than a century, Bowdaar fought in single combat in more than ten thousand matches against such formidable opponents as rancors, Mandalorians, gundarks and even a Jedi. In all that time he never lost a match.
Almost more impressive was the fact that Bowdaar often fought without a single weapon or piece of armor. Amongst the more ignorant and gullible denizens of the criminal underworld, rumors spread that he was some form of immortal being. Those who faced Bowdaar in combat and lived to tell about it said he was simply the best fighter around.
Personality and traitsEdit
Bowdaar was a loner and having grown up as a slave owned by one master or another for decades, considered himself to have no home, family or friends. His success in the fighting pits earned his various masters untold wealth, but he never shared in the spoils of his victories. What he did own was the heart and strength of a warrior and an unparalleled will to survive.
Behind the scenesEdit
Bowdaar was first mentioned in a The Holonet entry on the official Star Wars: The Old Republic website. His entry has several phrases written in Aurebesh which read "Good luck redhead," "Karssk's Prey" and "Great Feastmaster's collateral."
Bowdaar becomes the second companion for the Smuggler character in Star Wars: The Old Republic, following the completion of the storyline on Nar Shaddaa.
