We have no rules on The Liberty! Out of chaos comes creation! Messiness is life.

—Anarka, "Captain Hardrock"

Click here to see quotes from Anarka Couffaine.

Anarka Couffaine is the mother of Luka Couffaine and Juleka Couffaine.[2] In "Captain Hardrock", after Roger Raincomprix bans her from playing in the National Music Festival, she is Akumatized by Hawk Moth into Captain Hardrock, a music pirate supervillain.[2][3][4]


Physical appearance

Anarka has long grayish-green hair braided down her back and sky blue eyes.

Civilian attire

She wears a bright red glasses and a black coat with a gold trim that reaches her knees, over a light pink top and light blue jeans. She also wears heeled brown boots that go halfway up her calves.

She wears earrings with alternating aqua and red spheres, and a variety of bracelets and bangles. She also wears three rings on every finger except for her ring finger on her right hand. Anarka also has an indigo headband with a hair-clip positioned in the center.

As Captain Hardrock

Captain Hardrock has long red hair that is spiked upwards and golden eyes. The upper half of her face is covered with a black mark edged with dark red and she wears a black bandana with a white spiky-haired skull on the front, along with gold circular earrings.

She wears a bodysuit that is red from the collar to the chest and black from the chest, the color separation looking like flames. The suit includes three yellow buttons vertically on the lower body, three golden spikes horizontally over each knee, and a golden patch above each hip. She has two black belts, one going around the body diagonally and the other wrapped around the waist, that have golden buckles. Over her suit, she wears a black captain jacket with golden inner lining, golden spikes on the shoulders, golden edges, and golden buckles on the sides. Black fingerless gloves with golden edges around the upper holes cover her arms up to her elbows. Her knee-high boots that end below the knees are black and red in a flame-like pattern with black soles, golden heels, black inner lining, and black stripes with golden spikes above the ankles.

For a weapon, she carries a cutlass with a black handle, three thin red stripes on and near the pommel, and a blade with jagged black edges that goes from red at the handle to white at the tip.


As Anarka 

Anarka sounds and talks like a pirate as she believes that chaos and disorder can be a good thing, which is shown when she tells Marinette Dupain-Cheng that she likes to keep her houseboat messy. Despite this, she knows when they are not, such as not allowing a metallic statue anywhere near the boat's compass, knowing metal makes it go crazy and thus useless. She also believes in freedom, even naming her houseboat “Liberty”. When Roger Raincomprix orders her to keep her music’s volume down, Anarka stands her ground as she believes that she should be free to be as loud as she wants for her concert. However, after she is de-Akumatized, she realizes that she should obey the rules sometimes and keeps her volume down.

She doesn't appreciate being lied to as she got mad at Jagged for lying to her about what happened between him and Vivica.

As Captain Hardrock

As Captain Hardrock, her desire for freedom increases to the point where she wants to blast her music across Paris and ruin the other concerts so that she’ll be the only one heard. When the passengers of her ship refuse to play music for her, she gets mad and imprisons them. She also doesn't consider herself as her kids' mom anymore and has no remorse in taking them prisoner when they refuse to obey her.


Luka Couffaine and Juleka Couffaine

Not much is known about Anarka's relationship with her children, but she does seem to care about them. According to her, she doesn't allow them to clean up as they like the lived-in look and doesn't give them many rules.

Marinette Dupain-Cheng

When Anarka noticed Marinette cleaning her houseboat, she tells her not to as she likes the lived-in look.

Roger Raincomprix

Anarka becomes annoyed when Officer Roger tells her that she needs to keep her volume down and gets extremely angry when he gives her multiple tickets, causing her to get Akumatized. However, after being de-Akumatized, she respects his request to play her music quieter.

Jagged Stone

It's revealed in "Desperada" that Anarka and Jagged used to play music together, but they got separated for some reason. After he let go of his latest guitarist Vivica, Jagged tried to convince Anarka to play with him again, but she refused to do it. Even more, she got mad at Jagged for lying to her about his guitarist having abandoned him, when the truth was he was the one to fire her. Anarka let go of her anger on Jagged after he apologized to Vivica and hired her back.


As Captain Hardrock

Her houseboat, the Liberty, has become a seemingly indestructible living ship that can fire chains on command to ensnare Captain Hardrock's foes, as well as blast lasers, and it's cannons fire cannonball-shaped speakers which seem to act as white noise machines. The compass also points to whatever direction Captain Hardrock orders.

For a weapon, she has a microphone which doubles as a laser cutlass and can also turn into a spyglass.

  • Anarka is based on the word "anarchy", meaning "a state of disorder due to a lack of authority".
    • Anarka's surname Couffaine is a combination of "couffin" (French for "coffin") and the French suffix "-aine" (meaning "of or from a place"), ultimately meaning "of/from the coffin".
  • According to Wilfried Pain, Anarka is "the mother everyone wants, except when it's yours."[2]
  • Anarka's Akumatized form was first revealed when concept art of her ship was shown during a Nolife interview.[2]
    • Later, her appearance was revealed from a press conference by TFOU.[4]
  • In response to a comment on Twitter, Thomas Astruc noted that, "in a way," Captain Hardrock is a reference to Captain Harlock from the manga series Space Pirate Captain Harlock.[5]
    • Both Captain Hardrock and her ship are a visual pun on musical piracy.
  • It's unknown whether Anarka is married or a single mother.
  • All the Couffaines' names so far end with "-ka".
    • However, it is actually a pun, as it sounds like "acouphène", which means "tinnitus" in French.
