I usually don't get why people are so anxious to bring back past characters (Vaya, One-Eye, Crescent; the reason why people care so much about them is because they're not there anymore) after their outdone their work and left behind or killed (which is also the reason why I don't like how the elves so easily can communicate with deceased ones in the Palace), but Bowki is one of the few cases where I actually agree. One would think that the son of Dart would be important enough to feature in more than about one page. Of course, it has its appeal that we don't know much about him (makes us read between the lines, you know?), but... I mean, he has Strongbow and Moonshade's line on one side and Woodlock and Rainsong's on the other. Instead of giving Strongbow and Moonshade another child, Bowki could easily have replaced Chitter's role in my eyes.
