 Character Bio
Bowser ( or kyrog) is the main enemy of Mario since his first appearance in Super Mario Bros. (other than Super Mario Bros. 2) on the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). Bowser is the king of the Koopa race and has at least eight children (Iggy, Morton, Lemmy, Ludwig, Roy, Wendy, Larry and Bowser Jr.).
In general, Bowser's goal is to capture Princess Peach. His efforts are usually brought to a halt by Mario, often Luigi and occasionally others. Bowser's obsession with Peach even led to him to tell Bowser Jr. he was Peach's son.
In some games, he is capable of fluent human speech. In others, he communicates via a range of growls, roars and hisses.
