I call him [The Gorilla] because he's huge and he never speaks, just like a gorilla!

Adrien Agreste, "Adrien's Double Life"

Adrien's bodyguard, nicknamed The Gorilla, is Adrien's bodyguard and car chauffeur. In "Gorizilla", after he fails to get Adrien back and is harshly insulted by Gabriel Agreste for it, he is akumatized by Hawk Moth into Gorizilla, a gorilla-like supervillain.[2]

Appearance

Physical appearance

Adrien's bodyguard is large and tall, with dark blue eyes. The hair on top of his head is black while his sideburns and the hair on the sides of his head is gray. He doesn't have eyebrows.

Civilian attire

He wears a dark bluish-gray dress suit with a light bluish-gray sweater underneath the jacket. He also has dark bluish-gray dress shoes.

As Gorizilla

He is entirely blue with a lighter blue chest and face surrounded by thick black lines. His eyes are yellow, and he has two upper canines that stick out of his mouth.

Personality

SS (130)

The bodyguard seeing Simon Grimault as a threat to Adrien.

Adrien's bodyguard is serious, grim, and stoic, never talking or expressing any emotions. He takes his job very seriously and is quite protective of Adrien, threatening Simon Grimault when the latter just wanted to shake hands with Adrien. His suspicious nature also thrives outside of his job as he glances at Marinette from a distance because she is talking back to her purse, where Tikki is, in "Guitar Villain". He isn't afraid to stand up to what he considers dangerous to himself or others, like Simon Says and Darkblade, but he becomes fearful in particular cases he is endangered. While not openly genial, the bodyguard obeys his boss, Gabriel Agreste and Nathalie, and he follows through on requests on others, such as delivering Marinette's Christmas gift to Adrien in "A Christmas Special".

Abilities

As a civilian

The bodyguard is very strong, being able to use his height and build to intimate others if necessary. When Simon Says hypnotizes him to act like a gorilla, he is powerful enough to attack and restraint Cat Noir.

As Gorizilla

Gorizilla possesses extraordinary strength and an acute sense of smell, as well as a strong jump. Because of his enhanced senses and physical abilities, he is an excellent tracker, being able to follow Adrien just about anywhere after getting his scent from his bracelet. However, if his sense of smell is overpowered by a stronger scent, like Wayhem's bottle of Adrien: The Fragrance, he loses the ability to sniff out whoever he's trying to track.

Relationships

Adrien Agreste

The bodyguard is very protective of Adrien, leaving his side only when forced to, like when he is chased off by spiders summoned by Santa Claws. In general, he seems to be very fond of Adrien, showing signs of genuine care towards him. In "Gigantitan", when he is about to be akumatized from his frustration with parking the limousine, the mere sight of Adrien safe is enough to calm him down and repel the akuma.
