BIOGRAPHICAL DETAILS: Sinister Italian witch, a.k.a. "the saucy sorceress," who believes there is great power in $crooge McDuck's Number One Dime, convinced that it will make her the richest and luckiest duck in the world. Magica occasionally teams with her friend and housemate Mad Madam Mim or the Beagle Boys when troubling $crooge. According to "DuckTales," at some point in the past Magica's brother, Poe, was accidentally transformed into a raven, and has since become her companion and magical familiar. In comics, Carl Barks created an occassional companion for Magica, also a raven, though not the same as Poe, who goes by the name of Ratface. Magica is also a member of magician's guild Sorcerer's Anonymous.
