Darkwing Duck/Drake Mallard is an average citizen by day and St. Canard's resident superhero by night, assisted by his sidekick Launchpad McQuack and daughter Gosalyn Mallard. He possesses a mix of courageous altruism and a gigantic arrogance and ego, two drives that constantly clash during his adventures. For example, in the first part of the episode "Just Us Justice Ducks", he is initially mortified that he would be getting help against the Fearsome Five. Darkwing's origins are rather fuzzy. During his childhood and teenage years, Drake was a complete dork, but by his high school days, he had already developed an obsession with crime-fighting.However, he frequently claims to have become a superhero on the day he became Darkwing Duck after his teenage years.
