- “Cornerian forces here! Permission to join the fray, sir?”
- —Dash Bowman
Dash Bowman is a young pilot for the Cornerian Army, as well as the grandson of Andross and second cousin of Andrew Oikonny. He pilots the customised Monkey Arrow, a starfighter which resembles the Arwing, presumably due to Dash's fandom of Star Fox.
Following his grandfather's footsteps
In an alternate ending of Star Fox Command, Dash stays behind on Venom to finish what his grandfather initially started. In the years that followed, Venom matches Corneria in almost every way. In time, Dash states Venom has replaced Corneria as the center of political power in the Lylat system. In months, a small conflict turns to war.
Pinnacle of the new world
In another alternate ending of Star Fox Command, Dash converted Venom into a peaceful planet. Intending to build a new world with himself in charge.
Star Falco member
In another alternate ending, he decides to join Falco and Katt to create the rival mercenary organization Star Falco, although his reasons are unknown. Because he appeared to be piloting a Sky Claw, it can be assumed that Dash had scrapped his Monkey Arrow.
Despite what his youthful appearance might imply, Dash is a polite, professional young pilot and he thought very highly of Fox and Falco, and wished to join the Star Fox Team. Despite his age and appearance, he is a very skilled pilot. As the grandson of Andross, he thought highly of his intellect and acknowledges his death and original good intentions. This didn't stop him from being a fan of Fox or having negative emotion of him, considering that Fox eventually defeated his grandfather since he knew that Andross had apparently executed Fox's father, James McCloud. Because of his youth, small size and relation to Andross, Dash was unfortunately subject to ridicule during his meeting with Star Fox on Titania, initially rejected heavily by Falco such asking what he wanted from them such as: "A big lollipop? Some crayons?".
