Gosalyn Waddlemeyer-Mallard

Basic Info

Gosalyn is a spirited troublemaker with a penchant for getting under people's skin and right into their hearts. This is especially true of Drake Mallard, who adopted her soon after meeting her. She is headstrong and rambunctious, and often drags her best friend, Honker Muddlefoot, along for the ride. One of her favorite pastimes aside from making Honker's older brother and biggest bully Tank eat dirt, is to tag along with Darkwing Duck on his adventures despite explicitly being told she couldn't. Eventually she settles on her own vigilante identity, Quiverwing Quack, and not only does she work with Darkwing to take down baddies, she frequently upstages him. Even so, she remains her father's number one fan.

Background

Not much is known about Gosalyn's life before Drake adopted her other than she was orphaned after an “unfortunate accident” befell her grandfather, who was her guardian. It is never canonically stated what happened to Gosalyn's parents to land her in the care of her grandfather. Following his death she was placed in an orphanage, where she constantly gave the matron, Mrs. Cavanaugh (an homage to Gosalyn's voice actress Christine Cavanaugh) gray hairs.

Due to unknowingly possessing the arming code to her late grandfather's invention, the Ramrod, she is nearly kidnapped by Taurus Bulba's goons Hoof, Mouth, and Hammerhead Hannigan. Luckily Darkwing Duck gets to her first and takes her back to Darkwing Tower, his base of operations, which is part of the Audubon Bay Bridge. There they get to know one another, and even sing each other a colorful lullaby, until she ultimately taken by the same henchmen who had failed earlier. During that time, Darkwing had been following a lead that was actually a blatant trap. Although Gosalyn still had no idea she knew the arming code, Darkwing had figured out that it was part of the lullaby she had shared earlier. He punched in the code in exchange for Gosalyn's freedom only to be betrayed by Taurus Bulba. Gosalyn is saved by Launchpad McQuack, who by this point has earned his role as Darkwing Duck's sidekick, but they can only watch as a physical altercation ensues between Darkwing and Bulba, leading to the explosion of an overheated Ramrod.

Believing Darkwing dead, Gosalyn sits alone on her orphanage bed until she hears a familiar voice and peers out to spy a bandage-covered mallard. Drake Mallard (aka Darkwing Duck) has come to adopt her. They live in a large home in the suburbs, next to some overly-friendly neighbors, and Gosalyn attends elementary school. She participates in numerous sports and is grateful to live with both Drake and Launchpad, who had moved in with them.

Personality

Gosalyn is best described by the word “spirited,” and she is frequently causing mischief wherever she goes. She is savvy, stubborn, athletic, caring, and always quick with a comeback. She is fiercely loyal to her friends and family and isn't afraid to bust kneecaps to protect them. She loves being outdoors, participating in sports or other physically active activities, and isn't afraid to break rules to do what she thinks best (or fun). Drake is often called in to the principal's office due to Gosalyn's antics, and although she doesn't want to disappoint him, she can't be anyone other than who she is. She hates school and avoids her homework at all costs, even going so far as to have Honker complete assignments for her. Whiffle Boy is her favorite video game, and she is a force to be reckoned with when playing, even winning the Whiffle Boy playoffs with her father.

She hopes to follow in her adoptive father's footsteps as a vigilante, and is no stranger to facing down villains. Most of the time Gosalyn's headstrong nature keeps her sharp-tongued and unafraid, but there are times when she is reminded that she can't handle everything on her own.

Relationships

Drake Mallard/Darkwing Duck

Gosalyn was adopted by Drake soon after they met, and although they drive each other crazy they also love each other very much. He is supportive of her in most things, even grudgingly of her hero persona, although he worries about her safety. Despite his grounding her or insisting she stay behind, she sneaks out to tag along on his crimefighting ventures.

Launchpad McQuack

Launchpad is one of her closest friends. He currently resides with her and Drake, and enjoys beating him at board games as well as gorging on his delicious brownies. It also doesn't hurt that he can be gullible, and allows her and Honker to play sports in the house.

Honker Muddlefoot

Honker is Gosalyn's next door neighbor and best friend. Bookish and timid, he is completely the opposite of Gosalyn. She frequently defends him from bullies when she can, especially from his older brother Tank, and also encourages him to stick up for himself.
