Akers McCovet is an anthropomorphic dog.
Akers McCovet is a slimy crook specializing in fraudulously getting his oily hands on real estate. When Scrooge McDuck, abusing a legal loophole, declared Killmotor Hill and his Money Bin an independant nation, McCovet realized that Scrooge's fortune was no longer protected by American laws, and the police wouldn't intervene; the very land he could seize from Scrooge, since the old duck hadn't even bothered to write laws of his own. Therefore, McCovet hired the Beagle Boys as a miniature army and took over McDuckland. However, the Beagle Boys were eventually defeated by Huey, Dewey and Louie; without his minions, Akers was defenseless, and after a quick swordfight with Scrooge, he was forced to give up the crown and thrown out of McDuckland.
