Duusu[4] is the kwami of Emotion[5] who is connected to the Peacock Miraculous and with her power, its wearer can use the brooch to transform into a peacock-themed superhero. Her Miraculous was somehow damaged. Nathalie Sancoeur is Duusu's current owner, using her powers for evil.


Duusu is a deep blue creature and is 10 centimeters tall.[6] She has a small pale crimson circle on the center of her forehead, and pale crimson eyes with dark blue sclerae. Her mouth is a plum color and contains rows of teeth on the top and the bottom. Duusu's tail, reminiscent of that of a real peacock, contains five feathers. The eyes of the feathers are pale crimson, with a black interior and a dark blue exterior. She also has three feathers coming out from behind her head, the central one of which is longer than those to its left and right.

For more of Duusu's designs, see Duusu/Designs.


Duusu has a very sporadic personality, she can be happy one minute and then overly sad the next. Whether or not this is a result of her Miraculous being damaged is unknown. She is very easily excited and seems to enjoy chaos, though she is very concerned for Nathalie's health.


Duusu is able to fly, levitate, phase through solid objects, and carry objects that are larger and/or heavier than her.

As a kwami, Duusu has and can give the power of emotion, able to transform the holder of the Peacock Miraculous into a peacock-themed superhero or super-villain with the power of Amokization.


Nathalie Sancoeur

Although Nathalie wields her powers for evil, Duusu is shown to still cares for her, as she is upset over Nathalie collapsing in exhaustion and later advises her to rest instead of using her powers. She also seems to be aware of Nathalie's feelings for Gabriel as well, remarking that her desire to give him the Ladybug and Cat Miraculouses is romantic.

Gabriel Agreste

Not much is fully known between Gabriel and Duusu, but Duusu does obey him after he tells her that Nathalie needs to rest.


Duusu is friends with Nooroo, though she is oblivious to how Nooroo is concerned about her mental condition.


Before Season 1

When the concept of emotion into existence, Duusu came into existence. Before the Miraculouses were created, Duusu and the other kwamis traveled all over the universe, unable to interact with humans. Eventually, a mage created the Miraculouses, which allowed humans to see kwamis and the kwamis to help them.

For 5000 years, Duusu had been dormant in the Peacock Miraculous, stored in the Miracle Box at the temple of the Order of the Guardians and started in China.

172 years ago, Master Fu used the Peacock Miraculous to create a sentimonster that would bring him food while he was doing a Guardian test. However, he ends up creating a ravenous sentimonster with an insatiable hunger for Miraculouses. This mistake resulted in not only the destruction of the temple, but also in the loss of the Peacock and Butterfly Miraculouses leading to her jewel to being damaged.

At some point in recent times, Gabriel Agreste found the Butterfly Miraculous and the Peacock Miraculous, and he took them with him back to Paris. For some time, Duusu served Gabriel's wife, Emilie Agreste, allowing her to transformed into a peacock-theme holder, but, because of the damages her Miraculous possessed, she entered in an endless sleep.

Season 1

Throughout the first season, Duusu was dormant in the Peacock Miraculous in the safe of Gabriel Agreste's mansion.

Season 2

In "Sandboy", she was briefly mentioned by Sass, who said that he had not heard from her for a long time.

In "Mayura", her Miraculous becomes temporarily activated by the titular villain to save Hawk Moth, and was returned to Gabriel's safe afterwards.

Season 3

In "Reflekdoll", Duusu was briefly activated by Nathalie to become Mayura and created the sentimonster Reflekdoll. After Mayura and Hawk Moth were defeated, she expressed excitement over what happened, but becomes concerned when Nathalie begins coughing and falls to the floor. She was told by Gabriel that Nathalie will be fine but she needed peace and quiet.

In "Miraculer", Duusu was briefly activated by her owner to transform into Mayura, though she isn't seen on screen.

In "Feast", her powers were activated again when Gabriel sent Nathalie to awaken a sentimonster that was created by her previous owner Wang Fu long ago. With the creature under Hawk Moth's control they returned to his lair, but after the sentimonster was defeated they were forced to detransform due to Nathalie's worsening condition.

In "Ladybug", Duusu saw that Nathalie's condition was worsening due to overusing the damaged Peacock Miraculous with that Gabriel took it and she became dormant once more until Nathalie stole it. She became active and was happy that her wielder was up and running but spoke too soon, and heard that Nathalie wanted to create the ultimate sentimonster but Duusu advised against it. Despite that, they transform into Mayura and create a sentimonster of Ladybug however, even fooling Cat Noir the plot didn't work when the real Ladybug appeared. Losing the control of the sentimonster, Mayura was backed into a corner until she destroyed what she created and was saved by Hawk Moth. Returning to the mansion, Duusu hears that Nathalie's time as Mayura was over for now and went dormant in the Peacock Miraculous again rather sadly.
