Gabriel is Hawk Moth evidence list:
And speaking of that, he's close enough... so why doesn't he just move quickly and GRAB their Miraculous from them? Well, in Ladybug's case, she's still powered-up, so chances are he could never be quick enough to get them from her. Too much risk of exposure if he fails, too. But in Adrien's case, he *could* move quickly, and even overpower him if necessary, since Adrien is not in his trans-form as Cat Noir. Or even, as Adrien's father, just DEMAND that his son give him his ring.
Instead, he just asks politely... as if, somehow, he's *prevented* from taking those Miraculous by force -- I mean, he PERSONALLY, not his akumatized minions. Kind of like the old folklore about a vampire not being able to enter your home unless you invite him in.
I wonder what would happen if a miraculous got akumatized.
I don't think it could ever happen unless the user of the Miraculous was not chosen for it.
The very qualities that make someone a Chosen One for a particular Miraculous are the same qualities that would render that person a completely unsuitable candidate for akumatization.
In other words, to be able to harness a Kwami's power, a person has to have a certain inner strength and force of will. If that's the case, it doesn't mean that they never have any negative emotions or feel bad about anything, but with their particular mental makeup, they can handle it. They don't become consumed by things like that.
Yet ladybug still has feelings and we've seen her get mad before.
Unless you're not suitable for the Miraculous you're using. You weren't meant ever have it. It's meant for someone different, a different type of person altogether. Then you can't handle the power of that Miraculous, and in trying to bend it to your will, it bends YOU -- and that's where Hawk Moths come from.
Yeah, she can get mad. She's still human. She's IN CONTROL of herself, though. She knows there are invisible lines that she'll never cross, no matter how bad she feels.
But if she stays angry for an amount of time that would be enough for Hawk Moth.
No matter how much Marinette dislikes Chloe, she knows she would never do anything to hurt her, no matter WHAT Chloe did to her, or how bad she made Mari feel, or how mad she got. She's SAVED her worst enemy from death on several occasions. If someone can do that, they'll never be akumatized.
Y'see, that's why Master Fu chose Marinette. He could tell. You can't give the power of Ladybug to someone who might use it for their own purposes, to hurt someone or get revenge. It's all part of the Kwamis' plan.
Can you really hurt someone with the power of creation?
How fast do you think that yo-yo is spinning? All that centrifugal force would be lethal if she just let it fly at Chloe's head.
What do you think?
