They kept Serrin alive and had Bowki die because Serrin is only half Wolfrider, while Bowki is 3/4ths. The lifespan of a full-blooded Wolfrider is 3500 years, give or take a century or two. Bowki probably didn't live all that much longer than that, though he would have been expected to live longer than a full-blooded Wolfrider, and Serrin, being only half Wolfrider, even longer than that. Bowki simply reached the natural end of his life before his mother, who hasn't reached the natural end of hers.
