Bowie Grant is the gentle, introspective nephew of the late Claudia Grant. He is a sensitive, soft-spoken youth, who has yet to find his place in the world. Like his childhood friend, Dana Sterling, his parents left him int he costody of his god-father, General Emerson, while they joined the forces of the SDF-3 on their sojourn to the stars. Bowie and Dana are like brother and sister. When Dana entered the service, Bowie tagged along and eventually became her aid in the 15th squadront. Bowie is a skilled fighter, although he has no love for war or even physical sport. His true interest is in music. Bowie is a gifted piano played and a fair singer. With this in mind, it seems no wonder that he finds himself attracted to the alien, Musika. A mutual attraction the causes both Bowie and Musika to desert their posts in an attempt to avoid the insanity of war.
