Poe is a dapper uptown raven. His brothers are named Edgar and Allan, who all three live in a "birdhouse" attached to the mansion. Poe, as a man of culture and sophistication, likes to think of himself as a role model to the rest of the mansion's residents. Unfortunately, he tends to be a little too attached to his image and likes to cover up the parts of him that make him look like less than what he makes himself out to be. For example, he'd rather tell people he's performing in an actual opera than admit that he's staying home to listen to opera records. Poe's pampered nature also tends to make him overreact to things that everyone else would more or less take in stride. He is also fond of claiming to be a descendant of Edgar Allan Poe's pet budgie Paco, which is shown in the episode "Time Flies".
