Search for 'Bova' on Amazon
Bova possesses dense horns, has a solid frame, and may possess some degree of enhanced strength; though she has minimal combat training or fighting skills, she is nonetheless willing to risk her life to protect those she loves. Her body likely possesses many of the variations typified by cattle, such as a four compartment stomach, though she has been restructured into the form of biped, complete with hands and feet, with two fingers and a thumb on each hand. She may or may not have upper teeth.
She apparently ages at a reduced rate, as she would otherwise be over 70 years old, though that is not as yet unreasonable.
Her primary skills are in nursing (including childbirth) and care-taking, though she is also an experienced cook. She is highly compassionate and uniformly friendly to all unless they threaten her friends.
Bovine woman, acted as midwife to Magda Lennsherr and Miss America, delivered Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, raised Jessica Drew, has acted as nanny to Luna.
