Avaline is an Introvert by nature: peaceful, but living with Drake and Gosalyn has forced her to be a bit forceful at times. This is because she often ends up playing mediator between the two, and must insist that they listen to her while they can both be stubborn. She is very smart, but not to the point of being considered an intellectual such as Honker. But analytical enough that she can often assist in solving crimes.
She’s about even with Gosalyn. Avaline is also fearful and hesitant — All the loss she has experienced in her life has formed this in her. She fears losing anyone she grows to care about, and sometimes resists forming new and/or healthy bonds with others out of this fear. She usually allows Gosalyn to convince her to tag along on Darkwing’s adventures out of this fear: Inwardly, she feels she might have more control over their fates if she’s there to keep an eye on them.
She also can have a hard time forming friendships with others out of this fear. Gosalyn is mainly her best friend, but she befriends Honker and a couple other kids at school. As a kid, Avaline can be something of a goody-goody, often being the foil to Gosalyn’s rambunctious rebellious attitude. She mainly does what her father tells her to do, but she can also be corrupted by Gosalyn both out of the aforementioned fear of losing her family, and insecurity leading her to want Gosalyn to approve of her. As she grows older, she also becomes more sarcastic due to years of being around Drake and Gosalyn. She does learn to lighten up after being around her family, as well.

Warning: There are some spoilers for my fanfiction in this.
Avaline’s father died before she was old enough to remember him. Her mother, a pilot, raised her on her own for the most part, but had help from her sister and her sister’s husband. After Launchpad left Scrooge McDuck to be Darkwing’s sidekick, she was hired to replace him. Thus, Ava spent a lot of time with Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webbigail. She and Webby quickly grew close, often having tea parties and chasing along after the boys’ adventures together. Her relationship with the triplets was about the same as their relationship with Webby, them often acting irritated over her girlyness, but caring about her in reality. Dewey in particular would often be the nicest to her, often spending more time with her than his brothers, resulting in Avaline developing a crush on him. Because of her mother’s piloting for Scrooge, she would go on their adventures with them, picking up various artifacts on the way.
When Avaline’s mother and aunt were killed in a tragic plane accident not long after one of these excursions, she was forced to leave Duckburg, and live with her only remaining relative, her aunt’s husband, Howard. Shortly after, he received a job offer that was too good to refuse in St. Canard, and the two left Duckburg. Howard hardly paid any kind of nurturing attention to Avaline, and the villain terrorized her. Avaline meets Gosalyn Mallard in a park one day, and the two became friends, ultimately leading to Darkwing’s involvement and ultimately defeating the criminal. Unfortunately, Avaline’s uncle was killed in the process, leaving her a true orphan. By this point, however, she has grown close enough to Darkwing and Gosalyn that Drake Mallard adopts her as his second daughter.
