Every bit the eccentric genius, just like the Prime Universe's Ludwig, this version of the Professor was also once the director of S.H.U.S.H., and responsible for assigning Agent 22 to work with Scrooge McDuck against Black Heron.
At some point, he also created the Von Drake Doomsday Vault, a repository for the seeds of every plant on earth as a safeguard against any possible apocalyptic event. A semisentient recording of Ludwig was placed in the Vault, guiding visitors through the various defence mechanisms, though not always competently so.
Behind the scenesEdit
Strangely, he was never mentioned to be related to the Ducks in this continuity, though considering his close association with Scrooge, this could still implicitly be the case.
