I thought about that. I was leaning towards that as a part of the explanation, but Strongbow, for example, is still haunted by Crescent's fate (at least until Chitter came tumbling out of nowhere), so I don't know how strong the Now is in that family. :?


Crescent died tortured by humans, barely out of her teens. If Bowki died in his bed surrounded by those who loved him (for all we know he may have had several kids who descendants are now among the Sun villagers in the palace), it does make a huge difference in the attitude his parents and grand-parents would have about his being dead long ago. (10,000, and not under wrap, is more than any wolfrider has ever seen) Mender doesn't mourn much his parents and brother.
