Downy O'Drake, who became Downy McDuck, was a female anthropomorphic duck.
The daughter of Irish immigrant to Scotland Duckson O'Drake, Downy married a relatively wealthy man and was soon widowed. She remarried, choosing poor Fergus McDuck. Gentle and caring (although as stingy as all the other McDucks), Downy had several children, including Scrooge McDuck, Hortense McDuck, Matilda McDuck, Gideon McDuck and Marley McDuck, before dying of illness in 1897.
Behind the scenesEdit
She first appeared in 1977 in Zio Paperone e l'oro del Klondike, though a 1968 comic strip already mentioned her as "a rich widow".
