Downy O'Drake, who became Downy McDuck, was a female anthropomorphic duck.

Description

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 McDuckHortense McDuckMatilda McDuckGideon McDuck and Marley McDuck, before dying of illness in 1897. 

Behind the scenes

She first appeared in 1977 in Zio Paperone e l'oro del Klondike, though a 1968 comic strip had already mentioned a rather different version of Scrooge's mother as "a rich widow".

Barksian Parents of Scrooge

Downy and Fergus in Johannes A. Grote's Duck Family Tree (1999).

Prior to either, The Old Castle's Secret featured two portraits in Scrooge McDuck's house, which, although originally unlabelled, were later identified by Johannes A. Grote's Duck Family Tree as Scrooge's parents, and, indeed, do resemble Fergus and Downy as shown in DuckTales and in Don Rosa's works.
