Featherby is the personal secretary of Scrooge McDuck and also his first employee. She was hired by Scrooge's sisters shortly after they came to Duckburg and although Scrooge was against the expenses that came with a larger workforce than his immediate family, Featherby's qualities soon shone through and she could stay. Over time, she has become essential to Scrooge, performing all the organizational tasks at his office that would otherwise eat up precious time he could be investing in making money.
She is voiced by Tress MacNeille, June Foray, and Susan Blu.

One might mistake Featherby's equanimity as a result of age, but she has always been a stable presence who disappears into the environment effortlessly only to step out when the situation calls for it. It is how she is and what makes her, along with her deep sense of loyalty and adaptability, the perfect secretary. She has a healthy sense of sarcasm, but prefers to get her message across without any dressup.
Boom! Studios comics
- Featherby's name in every fiction but DuckTales is Quackfaster. Why the change was made to Featherby for DuckTales is unknown. Her first name, Emily, wasn't established until a few years after the cartoon series aired and it is unknown if it retroactively can be applied to the DuckTales version of her.
- Because Ms. Featherby only appeared in Darkwing Duck as part of the cast of Dangerous Currency, which is pseudo-canon at best, she's technically not part of Darkwing Duck canon.
