|“||Clearly the Bowgart kid is outsized by its instrument. Until it can grow full horns, it'll have to make do with hand-me-downs. It's a good thing that a Bowgart grows two horns; a younger's first attempt at making an instrument is not always successful.||”|
|“||Age and experience turn Bowgarts into skilled luthiers. They always have a collection of spare instruments around. It is generally considered wise to leave one's extra instrument unstrung though, as curious novices tend to produce a sound that can only be described as ghastly.||”|
The Bowgart is a four-armed humanoid monster. As a child, its horns are smaller and bites its lips with its one tooth. It sits down to play their instrument using adult-sized bows. Its fur also appears to be of a lighter blue than the adult. Another difference is the presence of an incised double curve in the middle of its instrument.
As an adult, the Bowgart is very similar to the one from the original game, with some differences in color and movement. Some noticeable differences include the coloring of its hands and eye sockets, which are now purple instead of blue, and rather than biting its lip, it appears to have a large overbite, and it has more fur on its forearms than its elbows. Additionally, The double curve is now larger and more pronounced.
Like in the original game, the Bowgart's contribution to an Island's song is the equivalent of upper and lower string sections. Its top two arms are responsible for the bowing and fingering of the upper string part, and its bottom two arms, the lower part.
On the Continent, the Bowgart starts off by playing a cello harmony. After a while, it also includes a deep double bass line along with its initial song. Later in the song, the Bowgart plays double stops in sets of crotchets.
On Space Island, the Bowgart will play fast quavers of high notes that accompany the Toe-Jammer, Sooza, and Rootitoot’s melody.
In Cave Island, the Bowgart makes a series of high triplets. When the slower part comes in, it will play slower but lower set of triplets that accompany the Fwog's main part.
Like the original game, there are three ways to breed the Bowgart in Dawn of Fire. Below are the three possible combinations for the Bowgart.
The Bowgart will request food and/or non-food items that are the products of Structures. If you cannot give the monster the food or items it requires, you can click the New Order button. After a 15 minute wait, it will ask for a new combination of foods or other items.
When given the wanted foods or items, like any monster, it will reward you coins.
Bowgart can be teleported to Space Island when fed to level 10 for a reward of 4? diamonds, or it can be teleported to Cave Island when fed to level 20 for a reward of 6 diamonds. Teleport time for Bowgart is TBA hours.
The Bowgart's name may be a combination of the monster Boggart (or "bogart") and a bow, the stick used on string instruments such as the one it plays.
- All the notes that the Bowgart ever plays are playable by an actual cello, though it requires special skill to get to the very high notes.
- The adult Bowgart's idle animation is somewhat broken, as while doing its idle, it seems to jump at the end of the animation to loop back. Furnoss also shared this glitch.
- Not counting Rare Bowgart, baby Bowgart is the only Bowgart counterpart to not have it’s teeth clenched, mainly because it only has one tooth.
