The Plumed Protector is an alias of Kessie as seen in the Book of Pooh story, "It's a Bird? Yes!" After Owl read a comic book to her, Kessie decided that she wanted to be a superhero, so she donned a cape and mask and called herself The Plumed Protector.

However, she wasn't just any superhero. Since she and Owl didn't finish the comic book, she thought all that superheroes did was fly around looking good. Therefore, that's all she did when she found her friends in certain predicaments instead of helping them.

With the help of Owl, however, Kessie learned that while superheroes aren't real, she can still help her friends and that it's nice to help others.
