The Old Qualani is an elderly female anthropomorphic duck.
This wily old lady was the Qualani of the hidden Quanchos people until the mid-1970's, when she planned to retire to her heir Hitta, passing the Golden Crown onto her. Hitta, however, escaped into the outside world instead, kidnapping her lookalike Brigitta MacBridge and trying to get her crowned in Hitta's place. The Old Qualani was, however, eventually alerted to the subterfuge and things went back to normal.
Behind the scenes
The Old Qualani appears in the 1987 story Captured in Bananaland.
