The book contains all the secrets of the Miraculous' powers. It is sacred and extremely dangerous in the wrong hands. The Great Guardian needs it back.

Tikki, "Volpina"

The Miraculous spellbook, also known as the Grimoire, is a book filled with information about the Miraculouses and the Miraculous holders. It is considered sacred by the Kwamis.

The contents of the book are written in the Guardians secret alphabet so that only they can translate the knowledge within. Even the Kwamis are not allowed to know how to read it, for fear of their Miraculous falling into the wrong hands.

It is currently in the possession of Gabriel Agreste, a.k.a. the supervillain, Hawk Moth/Shadow Moth.

History

The spellbook was created over 5000 years ago and by unknown means has seemingly gone unaffected by the passage of time. For many years, it was was kept in the temple of the Order of the Guardians, where they protected it from falling into the wrong hands. Guardians-in-training were taught how to decipher the code, but they aren't allowed to be close to it unless they were in life-death situations. Unlike them, kwamis were familiar with the book, but weren't taught know how to read it as they must never know the spells that are inside the book, as a precaution should a kwami fall into the wrong hands.

About 172 years ago, when Wang Fu was a young apprentice guardian, he got hungry during a 24 hour long apprentice trial and used the Peacock Miraculous to create a sentimonster to fetch him a snack, but in making the creature out of his hunger and his anger at the Miraculouses, which were the cause of his strife at the time, the sentimonster he created was a ravenous creature capable of devouring everything in its path and had an unyielding hunger for the Miraculouses. As it devoured the monks and any Miraculous it could find, an elder guardian tossed Wang the spellbook and told him to escape with it and the last Miracle Box. Wang made it out of the temple, but he lost the book along with the Butterfly and Peacock Miraculouses as he was trying to escape the sentimonster.

According to Tikki, Fu had been searching for the book for a long time.

At an unidentified time, according to Gabriel, Emilie Agreste gave him the spellbook as a gift when on a trip, which was the last gift she gave him before she disappeared. He kept it in his safe behind a painting of her in his atelier. In case the book was lost, he took pictures of the pages and uploaded them to his computer.

In "Volpina", Adrien Agreste discovered the book when he noticed his father looking at it, and took it from his father's safe (with Plagg's assistance) in order to get a closer look. He showed it to Lila Rossi, a new student at school, who stole the book from him before he left so she could get inspiration for a lie based on the Fox Miraculous (a fake copy without a Kwami) a part of a plan to get closer to Adrien. Recognizing the book and remembering its importance, Tikki told Marinette Dupain-Cheng that she needed to get it, so they followed Lila to the Place des Vosges. She threw the book in the trash when Adrien appeared and Marinette grabbed the book while neither were paying attention. Later, Tikki explained the value of the book to Marinette, and they took it to Master Fu.

Master Fu explained in "The Collector" that he had been taught enough by the Order to partially decipher the code and revealed to Marinette that the book contained secrets about more superpowers for the Ladybug Miraculous and Cat Miraculous. He also said that he believed that whoever possessed this book also had the Butterfly and Peacock Miraculouses. When he pointed out that the owner of the book was most likely Hawk Moth, Marinette initially worried that it meant Adrien could be Hawk Moth, but after learning more about Adrien's dilemma — being prevented from returning to school after losing his father's book — she concluded that Gabriel was more likely the culprit. The latter evaded her and Adrien's suspicions by akumatizing himself, but Marinette still felt bad for Adrien's punishment. To resolve the issue, Fu took pictures of the pages with his cellphone in order to have a digital copy of the information in the book. Marinette returned the book to Gabriel, lying that she had borrowed it because she thought it might be a book about clothing designs. She also asked where Gabriel had gotten the book from before leaving, which he explained as being a gift from his wife without giving more detail.

At some point before the events of "The Battle of the Miraculous", Wang Fu also gave a copies of the pictures he took of the books pages to his Successor as a precaution.

During the events of "The Battle of the Miraculous", after tracking down Fu's new hiding place near the Place des Vosges through Ladybug's appearances, Nathalie Sancoeur stole Fu's tablet with the deciphered copies of the spellbook's text and gave it to Gabriel. He later used the new information to fix the Peacock Miraculous.

Ever since then, Marinette has been working hard to decipher the text in the spellbook.

Appearance

The book is a large hardbound book with a brown cover. On the front and back cover, there is a golden design that is identical to the one on the Miracle Box. A golden line is also around the edge of the cover. The writings inside the book are in a special code.

Contents

As a safety precaution, the Spellbook is written in special code language that is unknown to most people. Even the kwamis are not allowed to know how to translate the text. The only ones who are taught to translate the writings are those who have received the proper teachings of the Order of the Guardians of the Miraculous.

He also claims those are encrypted, and the first two are in fact seaweed and an oyster's pearl respectively. Marinette later deduced that the last one is a literal tear from laughter.

Spells

OR1-(17).png

According to Fu, the book contains several spells that are able to grant new valuable abilities for Miraculous holders to use.

Since all the Miraculouses Jewels have the power to fuse together through the power Unification, it could be implied that the book has the information on how to do it and which jewels can fuse together. In order to get the power to change reality, a person would need to know the incantation to activate it while having both the Cat and Ladybug Miraculouses.

Potions

Syren (168).png

The spellbook contains recipes for potions that, when fed to kwamis, will temporarily modify their powers. Apart of the code, the recipes are written in code and need to be interpreted. For example, seaweed is written as "a branch from the dragon king's garden", and "secret kept in a shell" is an oyster pearl. Some ingredients are written exactly as they are, such as the ingredient a "tear of joy".

Repairing a Miraculous

Ingredients required to fix a damaged Miraculous.

The book contains information about how to repair a damaged Miraculous jewel by mixing an adhesive potion. Each recipe to fix a broken Miraculous is different. Any recipe to fix a broken Miraculous must contain Meteorite dust and Molten Gold, as written in the book "Dust from the sky, now precious, will fix the wings of the injured animal".

A potion as well is included in the recipe. It is a secret ingredient that is different for each Miraculous, the ingredient could possibly be related to the animal as the Peacock Miraculous' secret ingredient is a Feather.

Once a drop of the potion is applied to the damaged area, the command "Miraculous, repair yourself" must be spoken.

Repairing the Peacock Miraculous

When Gabriel repairs the Peacock Miraculous, he mixes dust of Meteorites with Molten Gold and adds a Peacock feather (which were used to create Amoks). He then applied a drop of the mixture to the cracks on the back of Peacock Miraculous. When the repair command was spoken, the cracks were sealed and repaired back to normal.

Miracle boxes

This page features information on how to open miracle boxes, it also contains information if the Kwamis get out of the box.

Other information

The book contains other information about the Miraculous and their powers.

Blank Pages

The spellbook only contains information that the Order of the Guardians have discovered about the Miraculouses so far. Because of this, the last pages of the book are blank, so that the guardians may add in any new information and new discoverers about the Miraculouses.

Trivia

  • Master Fu and Gabriel Agreste also call the spellbook the Grimoire.
  • Kwamis feel a sense of familiarity with the book when they see it: Plagg doesn't know exactly what it is when he first comes across it but knows he's seen it before and Tikki quickly recognizes it, stating that it must be brought to Wang Fu immediately.
  • It is stolen three times in "Volpina".
    • Adrien and Plagg take it from Gabriel's safe.
    • Lila takes it from Adrien when he leaves for fencing class.
    • Marinette and Tikki take it from Lila after she drops it in a trash can.
  • As of "Backwarder", since Master Fu has chosen Marinette to be the next guardian of the Chinese Miracle Box, it is possible that he also taught her how to read and decipher the spellbook's contents.
  • Just like the Miraculous jewels, it's likely the book was created through divine means as well, which would explain why it appears almost brand new despite possibly being thousands of years old.
    • During a flashback in "Feast", as a kid Master Fu lost the spellbook when leaping over the lava crater, if the book had fallen into the lava then it would've burned to ashes. But according to Tikki in "Volpina", Master Fu had been looking for the book for a long time meaning that it was intact implying that it didn't fall into the lava or it must have other defenses besides the code written inside.
  • The 1st holders (Ancient Chinese holders) helped the guardians create the contents of the spellbook since they are recorded inside and through examples started to discover the secrets of the jewels. Then, throughout the generations new information about them was included and so on.
    • Confirmed by Alya in "Mr. Pigeon 72", what's written in the spellbook is only what the Order of the Guardians have learned about the Miraculouses so far, and therefore is not a fixed set of rules.
    • In "Gabriel Agreste", it's shown that at the end of the grimoire are blank pages, also confirming that it's everything the Guardians know about the Miraculous.
      • The book does not include that Miraculous holders can develop new superpowers, such as Ladybug developing the power to create Akuma warding Magical Charms, simply by allowing themselves to do so.
  • In "Feast", Master Fu says that a monk gave him the grimoire he managed to save, implying that there may be other spellbooks in the Guardians' temple.
  • The text of the spellbook is written in Nyctography, a substitution cipher developed by Lewis Caroll for the purpose of writing down information without requiring sight. Many of the spellbook's text translates to gibberish, while some pages contain legible French words and sentences.
  • Since there is information about how to fix broken Miraculouses it's likely the guardians were aware of the effects of them when used in that state and if so may have developed a cure for the wielders who end up in such a state placing it in the spellbook as well.
