Click here to see quotes from Juleka Couffaine.


Juleka Couffaine[9] is a student in Miss Bustier's class at Collège Françoise Dupont. She is also the younger twin sister of Luka Couffaine.[8]

In "Reflekta", after being locked in the bathroom by Sabrina Raincomprix (under orders from Chloé Bourgeois) to prevent Juleka from participating in the class photo, she is akumatized by Hawk Moth and becomes Reflekta, a supervillain who turns people into copies of herself.

In "Reflekdoll", after Juleka misses the chance to model in the photoshoot for Marinette's design, she is once again akumatized by Hawk Moth into Reflekta. She is also amokized by Mayura, which caused her frustration and misery to form Reflekdoll, a doll-themed sentimonster which enhances her powers.

In "Félix", after being fooled by Félix into thinking that Adrien didn't appreciate his friends, Juleka is re-akumatized into Reflekta, and, along with Princess Fragrance and Lady Wifi, the three supervillains all form the Punishers Trio, a group of supervillains who want to get revenge on Adrien, later Félix.

In "Gang of Secrets", after Marinette keeps hiding secrets from them, Juleka is re-akumatized by Shadow Moth into Reflekta along with Lady Wifi, Princess Fragrance, Timebreaker and Horrificator, the five supervillains all form the Gang of Secrets, a group of supervillains who want to reveal Marinette's secrets.

In "Guiltrip", Juleka tells the class a secret involving Rose where she has a medical condition and occasionally requires hospital care. After Rose snaps at the class for being too overprotective, Juleka, feeling guilty, is re-akumatized and amokized again into Reflekta by Shadow Moth, and her guilt and sadness form Guiltrip, a portal-like sentimonster that makes people feel guilty. She also receives a Magical Charm from Ladybug that prevents her from being akumatized again.

In "Crocoduel", after her parents are re-akumatized into Captain Hardrock and Guitar Villain who form the titular group, Juleka receives the Tiger Miraculous from Ladybug. When the Miraculous is inhabited by Roaar, Juleka becomes Purple Tigress[10](Tigresse Pourpre in the French version), a tiger-themed superhero who helps Ladybug and Cat Noir during "particularly difficult missions" in the fourth season.[11][12]

After the events of "Strikeback", Juleka will temporarily be unable to become Purple Tigress after Hawk Moth manages to steal the Tiger Miraculous along with all the others contained in the Chinese Miracle Box from Ladybug's yo-yo.

Appearance

Physical appearance

Juleka is a slender teenage girl of pale skin who stands at a medium height. She has brilliant red eyes with dark eyeshadow and coccyx-length black hair, with dyed moderate mulberry tips at the end, and bangs covering the left side of her face. She wears a light violetish gray lipstick and her fingernails are painted light sapphire bluish gray with black nail art of intricate patterns on each one with different designs on each hand.

Civilian attire

Juleka wears a black turtlenecked, swan-necked T-shirt with a sea green lined collar, and side pockets, and black mesh sleeves. She also wears purple ripped leggings with rips above the knees and black high top sneakers with white soles. On her hands, she has blue-violetish black fingerless lace gloves that have a diamond pattern design; the right ends halfway up the forearm, while the left is slightly shorter as compared to the right one. She sometimes wears an arctic blue wrist mirror on her right hand with a royal blue gemstone in the center.

As Reflekta

Reflekta's face is white, and she has light brilliant rose circle markings around her eyes, along with strong gamboge-colored eyes and moderate purple lipstick. On the tips of her eyelashes, there are small light green spheres. Her hair is shiny and brilliant rose colored-with light purple stripes, and two twisted ponytails stick upward on each side of her head. She has side bangs, and at the center of the front of her hair, there is a gambogeish white upward almond-shaped eye with a light purple outline and a pink pupil. She wears a brilliant rose colored-ruff-like collared dress with light purple chevron stripes around her stomach to waist, and eyes like the one on her hair around her puffed sleeves and skirt. The tips of the ruff and the skirt have light pink edging, and her arms and legs have pink gloves and stockings. Her long pale, light grayish sea green fingernails stick out of the end of her gloves, and on the back of her right hand, she has a pink eye design with a black outline, the center being a black jewel that opens up to reveal a small circular mirror, (which is the akumatized object). At the bottom of her feet, she has pink rectangular platform dress shoes with triangular wedges and miniature eyes without pupils appear above the feet that covers her entire feet.

As Purple Tigress

Purple Tigress wears a brilliant crimson swan-necked superhero body-jumpsuit with a pale, light grayish fuchsia front, back of her arms, and palms of her hands and fingers which ends at the middle of her shins, with boots with pale, light grayish fuchsia toe caps resembling paws and golden soles. The suit has dark cerise lace stripes with similar patterns to her lace gloves. Her collar is outlined in gold with a zipper at the front. Her right hand, where she wears the Tiger Miraculous, sports a bejeweled black glove with swirling gold lines and feline-like fingers with golden claws. Brilliant crimson tiger ears with pale, light grayish fuchsia insides like Cat Noir's are in her hair, which is dark grayish heliotrope with deep fuchsia highlights, which is bound in a ponytail. Her eyes are a brilliant orange with light apple green sclerae, with a brilliant crimson, dark cerise bordered mask which bears pale, light grayish fuchsia marks on her eyelids and eyebrows. She also has dark grayish blue-violet lipstick. At her waist is the bolas, a long whip-like tool with three weighted striped balls at the end. It is worn like a belt with a gold ring in the center.

Personality

Juleka responding in awe to the Horrificator's roar.

Like Marc, Juleka is very timid and nervous around others but is very kind. She doesn't speak as often as the rest of her classmates, and when she does it is often in a self-conscious mumble.[13] She is rarely particularly expressive, though she will be in some cases, including calling out being through with Kim's "stupid dares".[14] Because of her quiet nature, Juleka feels like no one ever notices her and forgets she is around, but she is aware that there are people that care about her, to whom she expresses compassion and gentleness. She can be affectionate with those she is close to where she shares hugs with her friends or cuddling with Rose.

Juleka seems to like scary things or be unafraid of such, as she is the only student to not fear Horrificator, calling her "awesome". Despite her shyness, Juleka can be brave and supportive towards her friends as seen during the attacks of Darkblade, Befana, Gigantitan, and Truth. However, she is very sentitive when she told her classmates about Rose's condition which causes everyone to treat her differently and makes her feel guilty, leading to her akumatization.

As Purple Tigress, Juleka is more confident, braver, and fierce. Just like a tigress, she is stronger, fearless, and loyal to her team. All the confidence she got after her first appearance as a superhero changed her in a way that, she even showed it as a civilian, having been facilitated thanks to Ladybug's incentive for her to not be afraid to speak up even when detransformed.

As Reflekta, she is proud and vengeful because no one ever paid attention to her, she wants everyone to look like her so that she will never be unnoticed again. In particular, she wanted to transform Chloé because she prevented her from being in the class photo causing her first akumatization. She is quite vain, constantly telling everyone that they'll look better once they are changed and reassures them that they look amazing once they are. Due to her arrogance, she believes her victims like their new looks, when they clearly do not. Without a second thought, Reflekta is ruthless, even transforming people who are nice to and notice her, including Rose.

During a second time as Reflekta, she retains her vanity and pride but wanted to get back at her friends for excluding her from the photoshoot even though Marinette pointed that she said she didn't want to be in it, but claims she didn't let her explain. When her Reflekdoll went out of control, she panics and begs for the superheroes help'. However, she doesn't show gratitude and tried to transform them afterwards. For a third time as Reflekta, she, along with Lady Wifi and Princess Fragrance, wanted revenge on Adrien for sending an ungrateful message. However, after learning it was his cousin Félix, the Punisher Trio aimed their anger at him for making Adrien look like a monster and will also "punish" anyone who gets in their way.

When akumatized a fourth time as Reflekta, she, along with Lady Wifi, Princess Fragrance, Timebreaker, and Horrificator, wanted to expose Marinette's secrets in hopes of saving her and their friendship by forcing her to give them up so they can comfort her. She and the Gang of Secrets have no qualms putting bystanders in danger to find Marinette, such as transforming some people into images of herself. Her desire to persevere their friendship is so intense that she, Princess Fragrance, Horrificator, and Timebreaker chased after an illusion of Marinette instead of taking Cat Noir's ring.

When akumatized a fifth time, unlike before, Reflekta loses her usual behavior, being consumed by immense guilt by letting herself get sucked into her sentimonster, and continues sulking, even losing her will to fight when Ladybug and Cat Noir find her. When Pigella gave her Gift, Reflekta becomes happy again and even willingly let herself de-akumatized.

Abilities

As a civilian

Juleka seems to be skilled at applying makeup, as she is the makeup artist for Nino Lahiffe's short film in "Horrificator".

Juleka knows how to play bass and is a bassist in Kitty Section.

Juleka is cunning, figuring out as Reflekta Ladybug's plan to catch her and persuading a transformed André Bourgeois that she'll turn him back to normal if he tricks Ladybug and Cat Noir into believing he is her. Similarly, she is good at hiding, which she can use for sneaky attacks while akumatized.

As Reflekta

Reflekta is able to shoot rays from the jewel she has on her right hand, which transforms people into an identical physical copy of herself. Those transformed by her retain their regular voices and minds but don't have her powers and lose their own abilities. However, if someone acquires a Miraculous after being transformed by Reflekta, they can use it to transform as normal. It is unknown if detransforming in this state would turn them back to normal or if it would return them to being a clone of Reflekta. As clones, people are immune to subsequent hits from her ray. Reflekta is implied to be able to reverse the transformations as well, as she says to Hawk Moth that she will take care of getting Cat Noir's ring after getting the Ladybug Miraculous, despite having transformed him. She seems to be able to float, as seen when she jumps around. She also is very strong and fast, quickly throwing multiple lockers in front of a door in the span of a couple of seconds and breaking free from a basketball hoop around her body.

In "Reflekdoll", Reflekta is able to pilot a gigantic doll-like Sentimonster that fires a much stronger version of the same kind of beam from its mouth and turns people into copies of herself. It also owns Reflekta's strength and speed, as shown when it is quickly throwing a car.

As Purple Tigress

Purple Tigress has enhanced capabilities such as speed and agility. Her weapon is a bolas, a whip-like weapon with three weighted, striped balls on one end; it can be worn as a belt when not in use, functioning like a tail. She can use her power Clout to charge her fist with powerful energy. When Purple Tigress punches something, she completely overpowers it and sends the person or object she targeted flying. She also can cause a great deal of damage when she hits, for example, surfaces, like when she hit the ground where some of Penalty's copies were, creating an enormous crater.

Relationships

Luka Couffaine

Juleka being encouraged by Luka to become Marinette's model.

Luka is Juleka's older twin brother, whom she is very close to. They are part of the same band, Kitty Section, in which they play similar instruments.

Luka listens to Juleka openly talk about her dreams, including her desire to model Marinette's designs and how insecure she was in asking her and doing it. Luka has shown to be very understanding towards her feelings while also being encouraging, as he encouraged her to ask Marinette to be her model.

She enjoys hanging out with her brother on occasion.

Juleka is also aware of her older brother's separation with Marinette in "Gang of Secrets", as seen when she shows her friends a photo of Luka being heartbroken along with a very sad look on his face from her phone.

In "Crocoduel", she noticed that Luka is still upset after his breakup with Marinette, so she and her friends plan to have Luka and Marinette talk as friends. However, when Juleka is asked by Marinette to help her avoid Luka, she didn't have the heart to tell her brother because she didn't want to upset him.

In "Ephemeral", she meets his alterego Viperion as her alterego Purple Tigress and works well with him.

Rose Lavillant

Juleka listening to Rose talk about Prince Ali after giving her a tissue.

Juleka is best friends with Rose, so the two mutually care for each other. They might as well be sisters. While the quieter of the two, Juleka enjoys listening to Rose, such as when Rose is gushing about Prince Ali. They are both part of the same Art Club and members of Kitty Section. They sometimes play Super Penguino together.

Juleka also speaks up for Rose when it is needed and compliments Rose's notebook and Rose herself. However, she doesn't believe Rose about breaking her photo curse, and after being locked out of the photo, she sadly tells Rose to forget about her before running away. After Rose and Marinette prove her wrong about the curse, she is deeply happy about it.

Juleka was seen cuddling and comforting Rose after her close call with Zombizou's minions. In "Truth", it is shown that Juleka deeply cares about Rose; when she was about to tell Truth about Marinette, Juleka stepped in for her.

It's revealed in "Guiltrip" that one of the reasons for their great friendship is that Juleka was the only one in their class to know about Rose's illness, something the latter had shared with the former.

She also meets Rose's superhero alter ego, Pigella, who helps her break out of her endless guilt so the heroes can de-akumatize her. In "Ephemeral", Juleka, as Purple Tigress, meets Pigella again, as well as they fight beside each other as a team, with Ladybug and the rest of her Miraculous holder allies.

Marinette Dupain-Cheng/Ladybug

Juleka in a photo with Rose and Marinette.

A friend to Marinette, Juleka likes her and her kindness. She supports Marinette's run as class representative and mumbles an incomprehensible request she would like if Marinette wins. After countless times of bad photos for Juleka, Marinette helps her break the pattern even after Chloé ruins Juleka's attempt to be in the class photo. Getting good pictures of herself and her friends with her at the Place des Vosges, she graciously thanks Marinette for helping her.

Juleka finds Marinette cool as she works with her friends to defend her. Like the others, she already knows that Marinette has a crush on Adrien and approves of it, working with her friends to help Marinette plan a date with Adrien, but when Marinette turns Adrien's offer down, she has confidence in her friend that she'll get there someday. After the Scarlet Army's defeat, Juleka attended the picnic they had for Marinette.

Later, Juleka asked Marinette if she could be her model, but while the photoshoot was underway, she became angry with her when she didn't let her fully explain, leading to her being akumatized into Reflekta. Seeing her revenge on her after she was deakumatized, Juleka forgave Marinette and accepted her offer once again. Like her other classmates, Juleka knew that Marinette would never cheat or steal, being sad that she was expelled from school, leading to Juleka almost being akumatized again.

During "Gang of Secrets", like her friends, Juleka also knew that something was wrong with Marinette and was determined to find out what. When it resulted in Marinette pushing them away, she was sad about losing her friendship to the point where she becomes akumatized again. This time as her akumatized alter ego, Juleka along with the others were determined to unveil Marinette's secrets just so they could be friends again. Reflekta and the others didn't seem to care about the consequences of revealing said secrets. After she was deakumatized, Juleka comforted Marinette when she came clean about love life complications.

During "Guiltrip", Juleka tells Marinette about Rose's condition and when Rose snaps, Juleka becomes overwhelmed with guilt that Marinette and everyone else were upset leading to her akumatization and amokization. But afterwards, she was happy that everything returned to normal.

Marinette hugs Juleka apologetically.

In "Crocoduel", when Juleka and her friends planning to get Luka and Marinette talk as friends again, she is asked by Marinette to keep her brother away from the party. But when she couldn't, Juleka accepted Marinette's apology.

With Ladybug, Juleka is grateful for the superhero and believes in her ability to save the day with Cat Noir. She even works with Alya and the others to help Ladybug get out of Gigantitan's grip. During "Crocoduel", Juleka was saved by Ladybug when a speaker almost hits her. Upon seeing that she is the right choice to help the heroes save her parents who was akumatized into Captain Hardrock and Guitar Villain, Juleka accepted the Tiger Miraculous from Ladybug. Transforming into Purple Tigress, she helped her fight against the titular villains. Like the other members she follows Ladybug's orders without question. After her parents are de-akumatized, Juleka returned the miraculous to the heroine.

As Reflekta, she isn't pleased with Ladybug's interference with her plans and works to keep one step ahead of her schemes. In "Gang of Secrets, she was very enraged towards Ladybug for getting in the way of the gang's quest to "save" their friendship with Marinette. However, in "Guiltrip", Reflekta doesn't want to fight Ladybug as she is consumed by guilt. But when Pigella gives her Gift, Reflekta willingly let herself de-akumatized by Ladybug.

Alya Césaire

Alya is another one of Juleka's friends. She, Alya, and Marinette work together to cheer up Rose after Chloé upsets her. She agrees to her plan for them and Rose to help Marinette and her parents finish their large order of macarons in "Busy Day".

As friends, Juleka enjoys hanging out with Alya and helped Alya plan a date between Adrien and Marinette. They spend time with their friends at the movies and pose as extras in Clara's video.

However, Juleka looked even more uncomfortable when Alya talked to Marinette about modelling her own designs, who didn't let her finish her explanation about wanting to model despite being nervous to Marinette herself. In "Gang of Secrets", she works with Alya to discover what's wrong with Marinette but when Marinette breaks her ties she, Alya and their friends become akumatized.

During "Guiltrip", Juleka tells Alya about Rose's condition and when Rose snaps, Juleka becomes overwhelmed with guilt that Alya and everyone else were upset leading to her akumatization and amokization. But afterwards, she was happy that everything returned to regular time.

Like with Alix, Juleka shares Alya's love of horror and scary movies.

Chloé Bourgeois

Juleka despises Chloé and her rudeness towards everyone. Because Chloé prevents her from being in the class photo, she falls into despair and cries, lamenting that she'll never be in a photo as long as Chloé finds a way to keep her out. Beyond that incident, Juleka is displeased with Chloé insulting Rose's notebook. Like everyone else, she is aware of her actions as Queen Bee. In "Malediktator", Juleka is overjoyed when Chloé leaves for New York.

During her first time as Reflekta, she makes it one of her first objectives to take revenge against Chloé by insulting her looks and zaps her and turns into her mirror image.

Jagged Stone

Juleka is a fan of Jagged Stone, even asking him for an autograph. In "Truth", it is revealed that Jagged is Juleka and Luka's father.

In "Crocoduel", it is revealed that Juleka feels neglected by her father, thinking he loves Luka more than he loves her. These feelings almost caused her to be akumatized. That is until Jagged reveals that he wanted to give her his first bass as a birthday gift. At the end of the episode, Juleka and Jagged talk about their problems. Jagged tells her that he will always be there if she wants to tell him something, and Juleka tells him that she loves him.

Roaar

Juleka first meets Roaar in "Crocoduel". Juleka is at first very wary of Roaar, due to the former's shyness and fear of speaking up. But once Juleka stands her ground after Roaar incentives the girl gets more confident and Roaar tells her that she's good and that they will get along just fine.

Adrien Agreste/Cat Noir

Juleka first meets Adrien after he starts going to Collège Françoise Dupont. They are friendly towards each other. In "Reflekta", she receives his support when Chloé tried to take her spot in the class picture. In "Felix", when their video package was replied with a note by "Adrien" into believing he doesn't appreciate his friends she was devastated causing her akumatization again seeking him out for revenge but whenthe truth was unveiled the trio lost their desire for revenge against him. After she and the others were deakumatized they were happy that they were still friends. In "Guiltrip", she tells him about Rose's illness he promised Juleka that he won't treat her differently. Unlike most of Miss Bustier's class, Adrien listened to her and did not treat Rose any differently the next day.

Although she doesn't interact with Cat Noir much but like everyone else Juleka is grateful for the superhero and believes in his ability to save the day.

As Reflekta, she isn't pleased with Cat Noir's interference with her plans and works to keep one step ahead of them even transforming him into her look alike as she states that she hates cats. In "Gang of Secrets, she was very enraged towards him for getting in the way of the gang's quest to "save" their friendship with Marinette. However, in "Guiltrip", Reflekta doesn't want to fight Cat Noir as she is consumed by guilt. But when Pigella gives her Gift, Reflekta willingly let herself de-akumatized by them.

Cat Noir meeting Purple Tigress for the first time.

In "Crocoduel", she meets Cat Noir as her alter ego Purple Tigress. They are on very friendly towards each other as she was snuggled by Cat Noir and says they are practically family since both of their Miraculouses are a type of cat: Tiger and Black Cat. They also work well together, as he launches her and Ladybug to fight Captain Hardrock and Guitar Villain and makes sure she gets back to the surface safely with his staff. He was also very impressed and speechless when she used Clout against the villains. After the villains were defeated, Cat Noir tells Purple Tigress she did great, as he's about to detransforms, before leaving Cat Noir tells her that he hopes to sees her again someday.

Trivia

  • Juleka might be a variant of the name Julika, a diminutive of the name Julie, which descends from the Latin nomen Julius (of unclear meaning). In French, Jule means "jewel."
    • All the Couffaines' names so far end with "-ka".
    • In the Serbian and Croatian dubs, her name is changed to Julija.
    • In the some episodes of the Brazilian Portuguese dub, her name is changed to Juleika.
  • Juleka'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". It is also a pun, sounding like the French word "acouphène" (meaning "tinnitus").
  • Juleka was originally stated to be two years younger than her brother, Luka. However, Thomas Astruc changed it so they were twins, and noted in a tweet that she failed a grade and had to repeat a year. This makes her and Luka around 15/16, at least a year older than the rest of her classmates.[15]
    • The French tweet (link in the ref) goes and translates as follows: "Je pensais que Luka était plus âgé, mais du coup est ce que Juleka a redoublé?" "I thought Luka was older, does that mean Juleka failed a grade?" (Or more literally, they ask if Juleka repeated.) Astruc replies: "Oui. C'est une redoublante." "Yes. She failed a grade." (Again, more literally, she repeated.) Thus, Luka remains an older age and Juleka was aged up to match him since it was changed to them being twins.

Juleka's partially obscured face in the theme song

  • In the intro for Season 1, Juleka's face is blocked by Nino Lahiffe's hand, foreshadowing the conflict in her episode "Reflekta".
    • In "Reflekta", Juleka and Rose both reveal that they think that Juleka has a curse that prevents her from looking nice in photos. At the end of the episode, they believe it has been broken thanks to Marinette and their classmates.
    • Starting from Season 2, her face is completely shown, as her jinx is broken in "Reflekta".
  • In "Mr. Pigeon", during the derby hat competition, Juleka and Rose are standing next to a derby hat with gears attached to it, suggesting one or both of them made the hat.
  • In the season 2 intro, Juleka has tiger stickers on her face.
    • She also has the same stickers in the season 4 intro.
    • This foreshadows her becoming Purple Tigress.
  • In "The Evillustrator", she sits next to Nathaniel in science class instead of sitting next to Rose as she usually does.
  • In "Copycat" and "Rogercop", Juleka is wearing white clothes instead of her usual dark gray clothes.
    • According to Thomas Astruc, this is an error.[16]
  • Reflekta (Juleka's akumatized villain name) may be a reference to the Reflekta camera.
  • In the original French version, Juleka's dialogues are sometimes purposely made impossible to understand, while the English dub makes what she says clearly understandable. In the Dutch version, she even talks out loud more than in any other dub. According to Thomas Astruc, this modification ruins the character.[17]
  • Juleka's earlier concept design was different in many ways, including her shorter purple hair, black and white striped leggings, and dark purple boots.[18]
    • She also owned a purple bass guitar with a pink strap.
  • Reflekta negates Cat Noir's Cataclysm with her powers by transforming him into her image, making his Miraculous disappear and preventing him from touching anything with Cataclysm.
    • In "Reflekta", Juleka, akumatized into the titular villain, revealed that she hates cats.
  • A scarlet version of Reflekta briefly reappears in "Ladybug", but her akumization was interrupted.
  • Juleka is the only character to be akumatized and amokized at the same time twice, the first sentimonster being Reflekdoll in the episode of the same name and the second being Guiltrip in the episode of the same name.
  • Although having only one akumatized form throughout the series, Juleka comes in fourth place, alongside Rose, Alya, Philippe, Lila and Jagged, for being akumatized the most times behind Mr. Ramier, Chloé and Roger, having become Reflekta 6 times. ("Reflekta", "Reflekdoll", "Félix", "Ladybug", "Gang of Secrets", and "Guiltrip").
    • In "Reflekdoll" and "Guiltrip" she is amokized 2 times.
    • In "Félix", she is akumatized alongside Lady Wifi, and Princess Fragrance in a group.
      • And in "Gang of Secrets", she is akumatized alongside Lady Wifi, and Princess Fragrance in a group.
    • It should be noted that in "Ladybug", due to Nathalie's sickness, she and the other villains only got transformed and didn't use their powers to fight Ladybug and Cat Noir.
    • Juleka is one of the few characters who appears in "Heroes' Day" that had been akumatized prior to that but aren't akumatized during the events of the special.
  • It is shown in "Sole Crusher" that she knows/is able to dye hair as she dyes a strand of Zoé's hair alongside Rose.
