Bowdaar is the Wookiee companion character for the Smuggler class.

Background

The mighty Wookiee warrior named Bowdaar has fought in every death-match arena from Geonosis to Nar Shaddaa. In over one-hundred years facing countless opponents, Bowdaar has never been defeated. He has bested rancors, gundarks, Mandalorians and even a Jedi in single combat. Even more impressively, he often fights without the benefit of armor or weapons. The more gullible underworld scum whisper that Bowdaar is an immortal creature who can’t be killed, but those who have faced him and lived to tell know he is simply the best there is.

Although his many victories have earned and lost fortunes for the gamblers and crime lords wagering on his fights, Bowdaar has never shared that wealth. Enslaved as a child and forced into the arenas against his will, he has served one corrupt master after another for decades. Bowdaar has no family, no friends and no home—only a warrior’s strength and an unbeatable will to survive.

History

Bowdaar fights in gladiator arenas across the galaxy. In 108 years of competition, he has never been beaten. Some of the more superstitious beings in the underworld say that Bowdaar is an immortal being with supernatural powers, but those who have faced him in combat and lived to tell the tale know that he is only the best fighter out there.

Though his fights have made and lost fortunes for countless gamblers, Bowdaar has not profited. He is and has been a slave for all of the time he has been in the arena.

Bowdaar joins the Smuggler at the end of the Nar Shadda Smuggler's quest line.

Role and Equipment

Role:

Bowdar has several abilities to maintain aggro, and is a better tank than Corso for big packs of mobs. Whether or not he is better 1 vs.1, is unsure. Though as a melee tank Bowdar does suffer more hits than Corso would. His abilities are similar to that of the Sith Inquisitor companion, Khem Val.

Weapon:

Vibroswords are shown hanging on his back, but armor is not visible on Bowdaar. You can alter the way Bowdaar looks by purchasing the Bowdaar Customizations 1 through 4 for him from Guunta, at the Balmorra Bugtown (coords X: 277 Y: -235) for 12.500 credits. Bowdaar Customization 5 and 6 can only be purchased from Captain Kneely <Security Key Vendor> aboard the Ilum: Republic Orbital Station for 12.500 credits each.
