Right, let's bring this thread back to being about Bowki!
When Dart went back into Wrapstuff he said something like:
"He's you and me, and the wolf in us both. But in time he'll be you and Talmah, and the desert."
So, now I'm wondering; since he seemed to have been fairly Young when Dart went back into Wrapstuff, was he brought up (almost) solely as a Sun-villager?
And was Talmah simply Talmah? Or was he father?
