Ellie Scapelli

Basic Info

Red Nova is a Darkwing Duck OC. She is a supervillain and her main objective is to destroy St. Canard.


Born as Ellie Scapelli, daughter of Tony 'Trigger' Scapelli, the oldest of a group of racketeers padding the seedy underbelly of St. Canard, she was once a weapons specialist and arms dealer for the black market.

Commissioned by Negaduck to create a massive super weapon to level the city with, she cracks under the pressure and presents him with a malfunctioning creation. Furious at the weapon backfiring and ruining his plans, Negaduck leaves her trapped in one of her warehouses, triggering every explosive she ever made to go off at once, blowing her sky high.

Thought to be dead, Ellie wakes up months later- badly burnt, disfigured, and missing an arm- under the care of an unstable scientist by the name of Madam Anna Matronic. Having an affinity for canines, and having planned on fusing Ellie's body with her machines, she instead decides to assist Ellie in her quest for vengeance against Negaduck.

Shedding her old identity and ties with the mafia all together, Ellie begins her new life as Red Nova, feeling a greater purpose, and begins making weapons again with personal modifications to allow her easy use. Concealing her identity behind a helmet, visor, or goggles, she takes to the skies with a jet pack to allow for easier maneuvering, shooting across the skyline at break neck speed.

She becomes obsessed with explosions and astronomy, convinced that the trauma she went through gave her a new perspective on life. She intends to share it with St. Canard, reasoning that there is no way to save the city, it has to be burnt down to the ground, to start over again, like the rebirth of a star.


Ellie suffers from PTSD, as well as depression from her accident. The explosion has left her with disorientation in terms of memory, as well as a general inability to cope without resorting to reliving the blast over and over again, whether it's through creating explosions herself, or dreaming about them, which leads to an increase in insomnia.

With anyone new, she initially possesses a very guarded demeanor, all business, unless the other party has an extremely patient and outgoing personality. She is fearful of getting close to people, as the hardships she has been through has taught her that people are traitorous, as well as liable to get hurt or killed, especially in her past line of work. Her reluctance may eventually give way to the right people, which will allow them to see remnants of her past traits, such as her wit.

Duckverse History

Red Nova has had various run ins with other supervillains around town. Notably an unintentional crime spree with Quackerjack, a more intentional crime spree with Megavolt, and a terribly annoying encounter with one who refers to himself as Quiverwing Duck.

Her latest venture has taken her to a remote pastel colored town with a strangely unique mayor that is far from what it all seems.
