Roxanne Featherly is a news reporter in Duckburg in the DuckTales reboot; she is a green-feathered duck with white head feathers.

Personality

Roxanne is someone who values the public's opinion, as well as their trust in her findings throughout Duckburg. Because of this, her position as a well-known reporter among Duckburg has proven to be both positive and negative for Scrooge and his family. In incidents including "Jaw$!" Roxanne accuses Scrooge in front of the camera for valuing profit over people's lives due to his recent adventure causing largely grown vines to cause heavy damages across the city. However, during "The 87 Cent Solution!" Roxanne assists Scrooge in falsifying a death report for him, in order to get Glomgold to gloat about his time-stopping scheme in front of everyone and inadvertently admit to committing fraud.

History

Woo-oo!

Roxanne first appears near the end of an episode at a press conference at which Flintheart Glomgold is claiming to have obtained the Jewel of Atlantis. However, Roxanne and the others quickly turn their attention to Scrooge McDuck when he arrives with the true jewel, and she questions what he has to say about Flintheart's claims. She then reports on Scrooge's apparent return to adventuring "with family in tow" and how they will be "Solving mysteries and rewriting history."

Jaw$!

Roxanne conducts an interview with Scrooge at McDuck Manor, and initially appears friendly by commenting on his defeat of Medusa. However, she soon proves to be an aggressive and antagonistic interviewer, stating that Scrooge is only a multi-millionaire and questioning whether he's from Ireland, rather than Scotland. She also brings in Glomgold as a video guest, and accuses Scrooge of willfully endangering Duckburg. However, she later mistakes the scattering of Scrooge's fortune around the money bin as him giving away money to the people of Duckburg and reports positively on him.

Who is Gizmoduck?!

Roxanne conducts an interview with Huey Duck at Duckburg National Bank, where she asks Huey about the events the supposed robot menace causing havoc and destruction within the building. However, Huey instead claims the robot saved him and hopes to meet him again someday. Roxanne then offers the public to vote in their news site's online poll about whether or not the robot is incompetently dangerous or dangerously incompetent, to which Huey instead decided to consider him a hero.

She later appears at Mark Beaks' press conference involving his app which allows anyone in Duckburg's assistance from the robot buddy with a simple click. When Roxanne asks Beaks if he will be responding to all help requests, Beaks added that for the sake of efficiency, he would decide who he saves and who he doesn't. Later as the Gizmoduck suit ends up self-destructing, Huey steals Roxanne's microphone and spotlight while adding how heroic Gizmoduck was despite everyone's doubts, with Roxanne eventually coming in to take back the spotlight.

The 87 Cent Solution!

Due to Scrooge's increasing erratic behaviour, Roxanne notes that many of Scrooge's investors have begun to back out of his enterprise, and instead begin trusting it with safer and secure businesses like Glomgold's (much to her own confusion). Not too long after does she make another report by stating that Glomgold industries has now risen to the top of the stock index, and thus making him the richest duck in the world.

Suddenly, she is given another report and is saddened to say that Scrooge McDuck has died of a disease known as "Gold Fever." She then attends the funeral of Scrooge while witnessing Glomgold burst in and gloat about Scrooge's death. However, When Huey then intentionally motivates Glomgold to admit his scheme of stopping time to make Scrooge go mad, it is then revealed that Manny was playing dead inside the coffin with a false head of Scrooge. The civilian who sat beside Roxanne is then revealed to be Scrooge in a disguise, who admits he faked his own death and staged Roxanne's news report and the funeral in order to get Glomgold to admit to committing fraud.

A female Moonlander is then seen coming out the rocket, as Gizmoduck attempts to make peace with her by offering a pie.

Despite his offer, she attacks him with her hidden weapon, but luckily Officer Cabrera shoves him to the ground to avoid her blast.
