Northern White-Face Owl, often referred to as Professor/the professor by herself and other Friends, shares personality traits with Eurasian Eagle-Owl, her assistant. They are famed as the wisest Friends of Japari Park for their wide knowledge of Friends and the Park itself, and are well-aware of it; they proudly consider themselves as such and act highly defensive when someone says the opposite.
Role in the Plot
Northern White-Faced Owl is first seen in the forest along with Eurasian Eagle-Owl, spying on Kaban, Serval and Lucky as they travel to the Library. It is implied that they set up the blockade in the road which forced the three to take the detour into the Quiz Forest. Northern White-Face Owl and Eurasian Eagle-Owl meet them outside the Library after they complete the quiz, and they challenge them to cook a satisfying meal in exchange for an answer regarding Kaban's true identity. The owls explain themselves as being bored of Japari buns, and state that the meal would give them the energy to remember the information they need. In actuality, they are curious about the taste of human cooking, and deemed Kaban and Serval capable of making some due to their success in the quiz.
The owls provide Kaban and Serval with ingredients and facilities and spectate them as the challenge progresses; amongst themselves, they determine that Kaban must be human due to her ability to read and understand the cookbooks.
After the challenge, the owls declare that Kaban and Serval have passed (despite their initial disgust at the spiciness of their dish), answering that Kaban is indeed human and giving them a short description of human characteristics. They also reveal that the 'relics' and buildings in the park were built by humans. When Serval informs them that she and Kaban were attempting to find where other humans live, the owls reveal that they all suddenly disappeared from the park a long time ago under mysterious circumstances. The owls advise Kaban and Serval to search for environments habitable to humans, mentioning that it is possible that they all moved to a yet-unknown area. The owls then give them their promised 'bonus prize': two VIP tickets to the PPP comeback concert.
The owls see the heroines off before they travel to the waterfront. Before they leave, they warn them that Ceruleans were commonly observed to appear near humans, imploring them to run away immediately if they see one.
Northern White-Faced Owl and Eurasian Eagle-Owl lead the collective effort to help Serval against the Black Cerulean, having rounded up the Friends that Kaban and Serval met during their adventures. She attends the party celebrating Kaban's return.
Northern White-Faced Owl and Eurasian Eagle-Owl are virtually inseparable; they act and talk almost identically to each other, share the same knowledge, cooperate in all their activities, and even perform all of their conversations with other Friends in tandem. They are rarely (if ever) depicted alone or apart in the anime.
