A restless wanderer at heart, he travels through the galaxy on a ship powered by the lights of aurora borialis. He is searching for something - a beautiful place, a pretty face, but nothing is fulfilling and he always ends up moving on. He left to find his lost Space Cows who graze by the rainbow geysers of his home planet, a planet filled with paint drip ice mountains and a volcanic rumble, where grassy pathways vein through the middle of massive lakes and towering rock formations. He is branded with a circle - glittery and effervescent like the ice caves of his home, a trait shared by the ancestors of his people. This mark allows him the gift of sight beyond ones eyes, visions not of the future but rather of the present. It is because of this he can see glimpses of far away places, sometimes filled with beauty and wonder, other times of horrible creatures in lands filled with fire and poison. Occasionally he sees visions of his lost Bovines as they wander through Space and he fires up his ship to go after them.
It was through this gift of sight that he first saw the Swamp Princess where she stood in the glittery muck, brows furrowed and deep in concentration over a cloud of pink smoke. Even though he knew his trusty old ship only had enough juice left from the northern lights for a one way journey, the Space Cowboy fired it up to seek the company of this powerful women of his dreams.
