Akuma
"Come on, there are much worse people in Paris right now than Chloé Bourgeois! I'm sure people like Chloé are capable of great things. The problem is they only think of themselves. They don't understand the meaning of love. And we can't force them to change. But perhapes we can show them by setting a good example. That's why Marinettes are so important in today's world, because they have to much love to give! I'm counting on you!"

—Caline, "Zombizou"

Miss Caline Bustier[1] is a teacher at Collège Françoise Dupont.[2] In "Zombizou", while trying to protect Marinette Dupain-Cheng from an akuma, Caline is akumatized by Hawk Moth into Zombizou, a zombie kissing supervillain.[3]

Appearance

Physical appearance

Caline is tall and light-skinned with reddish-orangish hair, which she pulls back in a high bun, teal eyes, thin light pink lips and freckles.

Civilian attire

She wears a light blue jacket with a teal collared shirt and a white undershirt beneath, along with a pair of white earrings and a small gold necklace. She also wears light blue pants and white dress shoes.

As Zombizou

Zombizou is a grey-skinned villain with grey hair and grey-blue eyes. She wears black lipstick in a heart shape. She wears a butterfly-shaped pink mask, curved on top and curving to point beneath the eyes. She wears a primarily black dress with torn sleeves and adorned with a pink heart and a smaller black heart within it. The black heart has a pink lipstick stain on it. The dress has pink puffy sleeves that feature a stapled design, a la Frankenstein. Zombizou wears her hair in a bun decorated with two pink hair sticks with large round ends. She appears to wield a black lipstick.

Personality

Caline is a pleasant, kind, helpful and instructive teacher. Even though she is kind to her students, she can be stern with them if they misbehave and she will send them to Mr. Damocles' office if she thinks it's necessary. When André Bourgeois is upset at her when Chloé Bourgeois loses her bracelet in "Rogercop", she is indignant at the rebellion. However, if a villain or another threat appears, Caline gets nervous, as seen when Rogercop questions her, and will suggest to her students that they leave if it becomes potentially dangerous, as seen in "Lady Wifi". Caline also has incredible willpower, being able to initially resist becoming infected by an akuma in "Zombizou," something no one has been seen to do before.

As Zombizou, her views on love becomes warped, believing that she is spreading love by turning people into kissing zombies.

Relationships


Marinette Dupain-Cheng/Ladybug

Caline likes Marinette because she views her as a kind and helpful person, though she can be stern with her when needed, such as when she sent her to Mr. Damocles' office in "Lady Wifi" after she came in late and disrupted the class. In "Zombizou", when she notices how angry Marinette is over Chloé ruining the gift she made, Caline encourages Marinette to set a positive example for her classmates by forgiving Chloé. When she spots an akuma near her, she tries to shoo it away, refusing to let one of her students be akumatized.

Like with most Parisians, Caline is highly appreciative of Ladybug.

Chloé Bourgeois

While Caline is aware of Chloé's unkindness, Caline doesn't dislike her unlike her students. While everyone else is upset with Chloé in "Zombizou" after she ruins Marinette's gift, Caline is more forgiving. She tells Marinette that she believes that Chloé needs a positive example in order to better herself. As Zombizou, she primarly targets Chloé, wanting to turn her into a kissing zombie. After being deakumatized, Chloé apologizes to Caline and Caline accepts the apology and embraces her.


Lila Rossi

Like most of her students, Caline is unaware of Lila's deceitful nature as she believes Lila when she says on a video chat that she is in the Kingdom of Achu and working on a project to reduce pollution, calling it incredible.

Furthermore, in "Chameleon", she believes Lila's lie about having tinnitus and needing a front row seat.


Abilities

As a civilian

Caline is adept in teaching. As a teacher, she teaches French, literature, poetry and other languages.

As Zombizou

With her lipstick, Zombizou is able to blow kisses that turn people into zombies who seek to kiss other people. Zombizou also has enhanced physical abilities such as strength and agility.

Trivia

  • Caline looks noticeably similar to the character Lucille from A Monster in Paris. Despite this, no one who designed Caline ever saw A Monster in Paris and their similarities are entirely coincidental.[4]
  • Her akumatized form was first revealed as a silhouette in a promotional poster on Jeremy Zag's Instagram.[5]
  • Caline celebrates her birthday in "Zombizou."
  • Caline was the first character in the show to be akumatized not because of a person, but by the akuma itself.
